Courthouse celebration: Judge Ken Wynne was sworn in by Gov. Sonny Perdue Tuesday. Clockwise from top left: Wynne greeted dozens of local residents at a reception in his honor at the Newton County Judicial Center Friday. Wynne’s colleagues wrote messages on a cartoon image of him drawn by a GBI investigator. A name plate sits atop a desk in the judge’s new office. Layla Zon, left, will take Wynne’s spot as district attorney.
