A state of emergency is now in effect in Georgia following a violent holiday weekend. Governor Brian Kemp is also authorizing the activation of up to one-thousand troops with the Georgia National Guard. The move comes after the violence included the death of an eight-year-old girl on Saturday near the spot where Rayshard Brooks was shot and killed by Atlanta police.        The California Capitol is closing after several state officials tested positive for coronavirus. The building was shut down Monday after Assemblywoman Autumn Burke and four others tested positive for COVID-19. The virus was likely spread when staffers and legislators met to pass the state budget recently.        Workers removing a Confederate monument have discovered a time capsule in Raleigh, North Carolina. It was buried 126 years ago under the Confederate Soldiers Monument at the North Carolina State Memorial. Inside, a stone from Gettysburg was found, along with a pair of buttons and a strand of what's believed to be hair from Robert E. Lee's horse.        Lucky Brand has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy due to the economic fallout of the pandemic. The brand has over 200 stores across the country and will be closing 13 of them. The company has been in business for 30 years.        Pop star Lizzo is taking to her Instagram to address one man who kicked her and her friends out of a rental three days early. She claims the man mocked the way she danced. She wanted to let him know he can't stop her from shining and went on to thank him saying her house is better anyways.
