JOHNS CREEK: Bigger numbers are better at PGA

JOHNS CREEK, Ga. -- Normally, of course, lower numbers are better in the game of golf.

But at the 93rd PGA Championship now underway in Johns Creek, higher numbers are often better for the community.

First of all, people...lots of them.

About 50,000 are expected to show up each day for a total of more than 200,000 spectators by Sunday.

They'll be bringing in lots of money -- an estimated $50 million to the local economy.

Twelve-year-old entrepreneur Adam Steinichen was raking in some of that cash on Thursday as he and a partner sold cold drinks out of their backpacks to thirsty spectators in the parking lot.

"We've been here about an hour, and we've probably made almost $100 just off Gatorades and water," he said.

The PGA also means adding even more vehicles to the estimated 50,000 that travel Medlock Bridge Road each day.

Droughts signals bad news for peanut butter lovers

Droughts signals bad news for peanut butter lovers

ATLANTA -- It's been 30 years since so few acres of peanuts were planted in Georgia.

The shortage and ongoing drought are bringing higher prices for peanuts and their favorite cousin -- peanut butter.

The acreage is down because farmers chose to plant cotton, which was commanding higher prices. It was thought plenty of peanuts would still be available, but many of the plants have not come out of the ground due to drought.

The situation has peanut butter manufacturers bracing for tighter supplies, according to Don Koehler with the Georgia Peanut Commission.

Georgia is the nation's largest producer of peanuts, producing 46 percent of U.S. peanuts.
