Artists on display in Suwanee
SUWANEE - An exhibit by two Suwanee artists is on display at the Suwanee Crossroads Center.
The 17 pieces by LaTrecia Raffety and Anita Stewart are at 323 Buford Highway.
"Creative Discoveries" is on exhibit between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. in the municipal courtroom/meeting room Monday through Friday.
Vehicle up for sale on eBay
LAWRENCEVILLE - The county has posted its first surplus vehicle for sale on eBay.
The car, a 1994 Ford Taurus four-door sedan, first appeared on the site on Thursday. Bidding will close in seven days. Several more vehicles will be up soon.
For years, the county has sold its surplus vehicles at an annual auction to recoup whatever residual value remains. If the current trial is successful, they intend to post vehicles for sale regularly throughout the year to avoid extra depreciation while waiting for the auction date.
Gwinnett County was encouraged to try eBay after the city of Marietta reported good experiences using the site.

WINDER - The Winder-Barrow Community Theatre has received a donation of $1,500 from the Georgia Power Foundation to help produce the August production of "Arsenic and Old Lace."
