  • Fulton County Communications Director Gail Karas is knocking on wood, hopeful communication issues between county dispatchers and first responders have been fixed.
    Since upgrading dispatch consoles at the county communication center in early November, several issues had to be ironed out to ensure a clear line of communication between dispatchers and emergency personnel. The major problem, as Karas pointed out, was that transmissions were garbled for local fire departments using the county’s analog VHF system instead of the 800 MHz digital system.

  • WASHINGTON (AP) — A Republican bill that would eliminate key loan subsidies for college students and give a boost to for-profit colleges has passed the first major hurdle in the House of Representatives.
    The bill, a rewrite of the nation’s main law governing higher education, passed the House Committee on Education and the Workforce late Tuesday after more than 10 hours of debate. Democrats complained that the bill was rushed through the committee just two weeks after it was introduced without giving them a fair chance to review and amend it.
