Albany -- Two Dougherty County Commissioners receive doctor's excuses for missing Monday's meeting, because they're in the hospital.
Commissioner Jack Stone had surgery on an aortal aneurysm last Thursday.
Chairman Jeff Sinyard says Stone had a slight scare over the weekend, but is recovering. "He's had some health issues since then, but he's getting better now. We got good word yesterday that his fever broke, and we're just all hoping and praying that he'll get well," said Sinyard.
"He went through major surgery and we're all hoping and praying that he's going to continue to recover and hopefully be back here soon with us in our meetings," said County Commissioner Lamar Hudgins.
Commissioner Muarlene Edwards is also hospitalized, but should return home soon.
