Fulton County BOC approves funding to improve efficiency of the elections process

FULTON COUNTY, Ga. -- At the Aug. 5 board meeting, the Fulton County Board of Commissioners (BOC) approved the purchase of an election/asset management system and Poll Worker on-line training software system recommended by the county’s Department of Registration and Elections. Both systems will align the department to continue resolving issues that arose during the general election and general election runoff of 2008 as well as the primary and general elections of 2012.

“The approval to implement these two systems should improve our department’s ability to conduct elections more efficiently,” states Rick Barron, Director of the Fulton County Department of Registration and Elections. “The 2016 Election Year is fast approaching and having these two systems in place will enable us to be better prepared for the expected increase in turn-out due to it being a Presidential Election year.”

Delta announces $1 billion quarterly profit

ATLANTA -- Delta Air Lines reported $1 billion in adjusted net income, or $1.27 per share, during the second quarter, the company announced Wednesday.

That profit, based on lower-than-expected fuel prices and other operational savings, was 22% higher than the same months of April, May and June in 2014. The company returned $1 billion to shareholders through dividends and share buybacks.

"Delta's record results have allowed the company to invest in its employees through higher wage rates and profit sharing; improve the experience for our customers through new aircraft and innovative partnerships with global carriers; and uniquely deliver value for our shareholders by accelerating our capital returns while also paying down debt," CEO Richard Anderson said in a statement.

Bomb-making materials found in arrested teen's home


HAPEVILLE, Ga. -- A teenager was arrested, Wednesday, after being caught stealing mercury switches from an abandoned Hapeville warehouse.

While police did not specify what was removed from the home, the teen's father, Allen Mason, said investigators took chemicals.

Airlines accused of intentionally keeping fares high

ATLANTA -- The U.S. Department of Justice is investigating whether airlines, including Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines, are colluding to grow at a slower pace in an effort to keep fares high.

According to the investigation, major airlines are working together to limit seating and eliminate unprofitable flights. This allows them to increase ticket prices and extra charges. Airfares have risen 13 percent since 2009.

The Department of Justice sent letters to four airlines, asking for copies of all communications between them. Investigators also want to see conversations among the airlines, Wall Street analysts and major shareholders about plans for passenger capacity.

After a series of mergers starting in 2008, four airlines -- American, Delta, Southwest and United -- now control more than 80 percent of seats in the U.S.
