1,901 Georgia elected officials failed to file disclosures on time

ROSWELL-- One thousand nine hundred and one elected officials in Georgia missed a deadline to disclose their campaign finances by June 30, according to the state Ethics Commission. 

Most of them are down-ballot politicians little-known outside their locales.  11Alive News obtained the list after filing a request under the Georgia Open Records Act.

New license plate design unveiled

New license plate design unveiled

ATLANTA -- Gov. Nathan Deal unveiled the winning design in the license plate design contest Monday afternoon in Atlanta.

The winner has a peach tree on the left side of the plate with a country landscape across the bottom. Peach blossoms at the upper left frame the words "Peach State" while "Georgia" is in the upper right. Peaches are in the lower corners of the plate.

ADOPT A PET: Meet Buffalo Soldier

ATLANTA - If you dream of coming home to a wet nose, wagging tail and tons of kisses (in addition to, perhaps, a half-chewed shoe or an overturned trashcan) adopt a puppy from your local Humane Society. According to the ASPCA, approximately 5 million to 7 million domesticated animals enter animal shelters nationwide, every year, and approximately 3 million to 4 million are euthanized. However, you can change those numbers by adopting a "companion" for yourself or for your family. Pets are an investment but, in our opinion, an investment well worth the money.

Buffalo Solider is a seven-month-old Labrador retriever mix. He is looking for a forever home with a lifelong companion. According to the Humane Society, he’s a sweet and active pup who would do well in any home. The dog is brown and black and he is small for now. He was brought into the shelter, earlier this month and has not been declawed.

ATLANTA -- The wait is nearly over for Georgia's new license plate design.

Gov. Nathan Deal, Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle and Revenue Commissioner Doug MacGinnitie are expected to announce the winning design on Monday at the state Capitol. The contest ran up against a bit of controversy earlier this summer after confusion arose over whether the motto "In God We Trust" would be on the new car tag.

The public was invited to re-vote on the top eight designs, which were narrowed down from 500 entries submitted from across the state. State officials chose the winner from the top three vote-getters.

Georgia drivers can get the new plates next year. People have the option of adding the religious motto to the tag for an additional dollar.
