No fan of Facebook, but the movie’s good

When I first heard of the "Facebook movie," I groaned along with everybody else. It's bad enough I bought into the social networking era, got a profile and informed the world of my self-indulgent thoughts, but to watch a movie about it? With Facebook dominating almost everything on the Web and even our personal lives, a movie about Facebook just seemed too much.

Electricity prices to increase statewide in 2011

Utility customers across the state will get more bad news in 2011, as electricity prices are expected to increase.

Covington residents can expect to pay around 7 percent more for electricity, because the City of Covington will have to pay its provider, the Municipal Electric Authority of Georgia, a similar increase. The cost for customers will not come in the form of a rate increase, but will instead be passed on through the power cost adjustment, or PCA, which is designed to pass increased market costs on to customers.
