 COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) - A west Georgia school system is set to vote on a package of cuts that includes closing an elementary school and a middle school.


      The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reports that the Muscogee County School Board is scheduled to vote on the plan Monday night.


      The recommendation by interim Superintendent John Phillips includes closing Edgewood Elementary School and Marshall Middle School.


      At-large school board member Cathy Williams called the decision the toughest vote she will cast in six years on the board.
