MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama state employees have been given
a four-day Thanksgiving weekend, bringing their holiday total for
the year to 14.

The Montgomery Advertiser reports that Gov. Bob Riley informed
agency and department heads that workers would get Friday off in a
Nov. 6 memo.

Riley has typically given state employees off on the Friday
after Thanksgiving.

Todd Stacy, press secretary for Riley, says there are no plans
to give state employees any other additional paid holidays off this
year. In 2007, the governor granted state employees a paid holiday
on Christmas Eve to give them a four-day weekend.
