Good morning. I'm Melissa Long at the CNN Center in Atlanta. It's Friday, TGIF. Here's a look at some of the stories making news this morning.

General Motors has told 1,100 dealerships they will be shut down by October of next year. It's the first step may planned a 40% cut in its retail1 network. That's tens of thousands of jobs. The company has two weeks to work out several financial deals or else faces bankruptcy2.

President Obama will restart military commission for a few Guantanamo detainees. The announcement is expected today. An administration official says the changes include more rights for terror suspects including picking their own attorneys and a ban on evidence obtained by cruel treatment such as waterboarding. The president suspended the commissions his first week in office. Critics say the system is fatally flawed despite the changes.

A swine flu outbreak is forcing New York City to close three schools. Mayor Michael Bloomberg says four students and an assistant principal have documented cases of the H1N1 virus. 4, 500 kids go to the schools and more than 50 have flu-like symptoms.

Most people haven't come down with it, and you have got to remember, we are talking about 4500 students here in a city of 8.4 million. It may very well be that even an awful lot of people have it and the symptoms are so minor3 that they don't even know it.

The assistant principal is in critical condition. The mayor says there may have been some pre-existing health problems.

And today is a big day for the astronauts trying to fix the Hubble space telescope. They are trying to install new gyroscopes /. Those help to point the telescope in the right direction. Yesterday they swapped4 out an old camera for a new one that is as big as a baby grand piano.

And California Senate has approved an annual Harvey Milk Day. It comes on the heels of the success of the Sean Penn biopic on the activist5, but the measure must be approved by the State Assembly before going to the governor's desk. Governor Schwarzenegger vetoed a nearly identical bill last year. Milk was the first openly gay man elected to public office in California. He was assassinated6 in 1978.

You're up-to-date. Those are the headlines making news at this hour. Do stay with CNN and CNN. com for more on these stories or other news develops today.
