BRUNSWICK, Ga. — Four older teenagers have been charged with felonies for what police say was a sucker-punch attack on a 16-year-old boy at a Wal-Mart store in coastal Brunswick.
Glynn County police say the attack Monday had similarities to the so-called “knockout game,” in which assailants try to knock out random victims with a single punch and often place video of the attacks online. Police Chief Matt Doering said he didn’t know if the attack was recorded.
ST. MARYS, Ga. — Enlisted women could begin serving aboard submarines as early as 2016, depending on the interest female sailors have in serving on the boats.
Every enlisted woman in the Navy will be asked to participate in an anonymous survey this summer to determine how many would volunteer to serve aboard the vessels.
“The ability to attract, recruit and retain quality female sailors is essential to the success of integration. It will also be a big challenge,” Lt. Timothy Hawkins, spokesman for the task force, said in a statement.
Georgia Power Co. has steered clear of further Plant Vogtle expansion cost overruns and schedule delays in the past year, according to a report filed Friday with the state’s Public Service Commission.
In the first construction monitoring report filed in a year, Georgia Power told state regulators that forecast construction and capital costs were unchanged since its financial share of Vogtle’s new reactors rose 8.6 percent. The projected completion dates remain in the fourth quarter of 2017 and 2018, respectively, for Units 3 and 4.
