No shelters here during hurricanes

Because Liberty County is so close to the coast, emergency agencies do not plan to open shelters to the public during a hurricane. Residents who are asked to evacuate, however, are normally directed to shelters farther inland.

Why storms are named

Experience shows that the use of short, distinctive names in written as well as spoken communications is quicker and less subject to error than the older, more cumbersome latitude-longitude identification methods. These advantages are especially important in exchanging detailed storm information between hundreds of widely scattered stations, coastal bases, and ships at sea. The use of easily remembered names also greatly reduces confusion when two or more tropical storms occur at the same time.

On ham, grits and cell phones

MOULTRIE - We're all sitting there at the breakfast club, and someone begins talking about his new cell phone. It can do a lot of stuff, but it can't pour coffee nor can it scramble my sausage and eggs into my grits. So I'm left with some comfort zone. What I mean is, I don't think my life is totally about advanced technology and gizmos. There are still books to be read, there are still sticks to be whittled and there are still songs to be sung in the shower.

Cloak of secrecy at Energy Department

The recent acceptance of $8.3 billion in taxpayer-backed loan guarantees by the builders of the Vogtle nuclear reactors seems like good news for Georgia electric customers.
