Under an opinion by the Supreme Court of Georgia, the program that provides tax exemptions to those who contribute to scholarships for students to use at private schools, including religious schools, will remain in place.
With today’s decision, the high court has unanimously upheld a Fulton County court ruling that says taxpayers who challenged the program as unconstitutional had no standing, or right, to bring their constitutional challenge.

Rock painting, hiding and hunting is a popular activity across the country, with local Facebook groups popping up everywhere. Above, some rocks recently hidden in Pickens County.
It was an hour or so after I first spoke with “Pickens County GA Rocks” Facebook page founder Cindy McPherson that I decided to go on a rock hunt of my own.
She’d given be a brief explanation of the painted rock hiding/finding phenomenon that’s sweeping the nation, and I’d spotted a clue on the Facebook page for a rock hidden at a location that was on my way to Ball Ground. The clue was a photo of a small rock painted with the word “God” and placed on a concrete patio ledge. The photo caption read, “You have to be ‘quick’ to find this one.”
