SUWANEE NEWS WEEK: Newspaper Makes News at UGA ...

Reviewing some top stories from Suwanee and Gwinnett from the past week.

It was a week when news was the news in Northeast Georgia. Let's take a look back:

The Red and Black, the student-run newspaper at the University of Georgia, was beset by conflict.

The city began accepting proposals to display its 9/11 artifact, called Remembrance. Officials want it displayed in the Town Center area by Sept. 11, 2013.
