Fewer Georgians voting early

Fewer Georgians voting early

ATLANTA -- Fewer voters cast early ballots for Georgia's upcoming presidential primary than in 2008.

Secretary of State Brian Kemp's office said 172,135 people had voted in the presidential primary by Friday. That includes 145,826 people who voted at polling stations and another 26,309 who mailed in absentee ballots.

Early voting sites have now closed, although residents can continue to mail in absentee ballots until the close of polls on Tuesday.

Early voting turnout is down about 31 percent from 2008. Those early ballots will not be counted until Tuesday, making it impossible to say which Republican presidential candidate has a lead among early voters.

Cobb County almost spared from storms

MARIETTA, Ga. (WXIA) -- Hearing that most of Cobb was spared from Friday night's storms isn't much comfort when you have an oak tree in your living room. The Lieu family returned from work to find their house split in half.

"It's one of the most devastating feelings in the world," said Yeyo Lieu, "Especially when you plan to come home from work and relax, and then you see this."

Her home was near the area off Roswell Road where most of the county's storm damage was centered. East Cobb Park lost about 30 trees, and crews were working overtime Saturday morning to feed them to a chipper.

"We'll be here until we get the job done," said parks director Benjie Brumbloe. "We've had some kids coming in once the sun's come out that were climbing on the trees, they're a lot more attractive than playground equipment."

Roswell Road was closed for most of the day Saturday, as crews worked to fix several power lines that were hit by falling trees.

High School teams take viewers on Road Trips

ATLANTA -- Each week on HighSchoolSports.Net viewers were treated to a feature that allowed them to travel along with our area teams.  It's called "Road Trip."

With the metro Atlanta area becoming a big target for college recruiters, the profile of high school basketball teams has grown.  Many of the area's top teams are invited to play in some of the top national high school tournaments and showcases.

These trips allow the players to compete against some of the nation's top talent, but also allows them to bond as a team while visiting parts of the country they might not get to visit otherwise.

We asked some of the teams to take pictures while on these special trips and bring them back for our weekly "Road Trip" segment.  This is what they brought back.
