Fayette County tap water still stinks after 1 week

FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. -- Fayette County tap water still stinks, one week after the tap water in many parts of the county began to smell like a sewer.

The county insists the water is safe to drink.  As of Monday night there was no telling how much longer the water would continue to stink.

"I noticed it on Monday" May 6, said Lucille Redding of Fayetteville. "Tuesday it was just ridiculous, and each day it gets progressively worse. The smell is putrid, as is the taste.... like a sewer.... It's terrible, terrible."

She and her husband are now on their third case of bottled water.

Fayette County blames a natural event that occurred in one of its reservoirs, Lake Peachtree -- an event called "lake inversion."

Roswell teen scores role in Jackie Robinson biopic, "42"

ROSWELL, Ga. -- It is slated to be one of the biggest movie hits of the year.

42 is the story of Jackie Robinson and his remarkable life 66 years ago when he became the first African-American to break the so-called "color line" of Major League Baseball.

And 13-year-old Henry Friedman from Roswell has made a name for himself in the movie.

The Friedman family has lived in Atlanta for generations.

You might best know the last name from the world famous Friedman's shoe store downtown that has catered to athletes from all over the planet.

Grandfather Friedman sold the store in the 1950's but the name has remained.

Now in 2013,  there is another famous Friedman making his mark here.

"When I was little, my grandparents' house I would get my brother and cousin and we would put up magic shows," Henry said.
