Coca-Cola's sales declined in the first quarter as it restructured its business, and the world's biggest beverage maker said it will cut 1,200 jobs starting later this year as it deepens its cost-cutting.

 

The maker of Fanta, Sprite and Smartwater said the job cuts will come from its corporate staff around the world. That would represent about a 22 percent reduction of its corporate staff of about 5,500, or a 1 percent reduction in its total workforce of 100,300 employees, according to FactSet.

Country Music legend Bill Anderson returns to his roots for an event in nearby Commerce Georgia, and a book signing at UGA.

So board games are a thing of the past right? Candyland, Connect Four, or maybe Clue was your choice for entertainment at one point long ago. But what if I told you there was a place to relive all those days from your childhood and maybe even learn about some new games, all while enjoying your favorite adult beverage.

WUGA's Martin Matheny has the story.
