Ga. jobless rate unchanged; prison warden stabbed; Ga. city paying people to move there

*Georgia’s February unemployment rate was 3.1 percent, unchanged from January. It is now eight-tenths lower than the national unemployment rate. Jobs were up by 2,400 (0.1%) over the month and up by 48,900 (1.0%) over the year to 4,938,200, an all-time high. (Local rates will be announced next week.)

*The stabbing of a prison warden is under investigation in southeast Georgia. A Department of Corrections official says that an inmate assaulted Warden Andrew McFarlane with a homemade weapon at Telfair State Prison.  No word on the warden’s condition.

*Columbus is offering cash for out of towners to move there. The “Make My Move” campaign is offering $5,000 with an additional $2,400 in incentives, but applicants must prove they have an annual income of at least $75,000, be 18 years or older, move from at least 75 miles away, and live in the county for at least one year.
