It’s not really local news, but I don’t know if you were aware, but in the last week, Forbes (who promote themselves as the leading source for reliable business news and financial information) announced the list of richest people in the world. Now if you’ve ever looked into this, you’ll know, or at least have a fair idea of who this is.
So I’ll give you some clues in case you haven’t heard.
1. It’s a guy, sorry ladies, but no surprise there unfortunately.
2. No, he’s what I would call middle aged so no it’s not a football player
3. You’ll more than likely use something he makes, owns, runs, whatever today, may be more
Please read on to see who it is.

This week is Severe Weather Awareness Week in the State of Georgia. As a part of the Severe Weather Awareness Week activities the statewide Tornado Drills will Be held on Wednesday, February 4th. If, for any reason the drill needs to be postponed an updated Public Information Statement will be issued by the National Weather Service office in Jacksonville on Wednesday morning.
The Tornado Drill product will not be issued as an actual Tornado Warning nor will it trigger the Emergency Alert System (EAS). Instead the Tornado Drill will represent this week’s Routine Weekly Test (RWT) for both NOAA “All Hazards” Weather Transmitters.
The Tornado Drill/Routine Weekly Test for the State of Georgia will be held at 9:00 a.m. and will be transmitted on transmitters serving the State of Georgia.
The drill message will be transmitted as a Routine Weekly Test it must be understood that some NOAA Weather Radio receivers will not alarm for the Routine Weekly Test message. Therefore, if you do not actually hear the alarm tone you should assume the drill is being conducted on time and take the actions you would normally take for a Tornado Warning for your family, business, school, hospital ,nursing home, or facility.
There will be no concluding message for the drill. You should assume the drill will end at 9:30 a.m. in the state.
