Unemployment inches higher in Coweta, Newnan

The word from the “experts” is that the recession is over. But somebody forgot to tell Main Street where, in Coweta County and across Georgia, the unemployment figures released last week by the Georgia Dept. of Labor tell a strikingly different story.

The jobless rate in Coweta rose again last month, with DOL figures showing an unemployment rate of 9.4 percent. That compares to the 9.2 percent rate in July. A year ago the rate was 9.6 percent.

Though denied by the board last year, the re-scaled development came back to the commission again, but in the form of an annexation request by Sharpsburg to annex the property for the development into the city. In the end the commission voted not to object. Read More»
