SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) - While the area's paper source for news has adapted to technology changes, it's also sparked a new business.

Worthit2u-dot-net began about six years ago and is also one of WALB's news partners.

Two friends started the business after seeing similar websites in surrounding counties.

"We just put our heads together and came up with the idea to do online news for Worth County. Because we didn't have but just the once a week newspaper and we felt like people wanted more than that," said Owner Deborah Robinson.

The online news source has recently expanded, covering Turner and Crisp Counties as well.
