Georgia is home to Coca-Cola, invented in 1886 by Dr. John S. Pemberton. The name came from the Dr.’s bookkeeper Frank Robinson. The once small operation sold out of a pharmacy is now a worldwide company with several different brands of soda and subsidiaries.
In more recent news the Governor has proposed a $42 billion budget for the fiscal year beginning July 2014. The budget, if approved, will allocate $547 million in additional funds for K-12 schooling systems as well as $314 million in new funds for local school systems.
The additional school funding will allow schools to keep up with the growing number of enrollments as well as restore school days that were cut due to funding issues.
