Georgia conservationists launch Operation ROE

A coalition of angler-supported conservation groups, including Coastal Conservation Association Georgia, Georgia Wildlife Federation, Satilla Riverkeeper, Georgia Kayak Fishing, Ogeechee Riverkeeper and Savannah Riverkeeper, is calling on Georgia's fishermen to ensure the future of one of their favorite catches - the spotted seatrout. Dubbed Operation ROE (release over eighteen), the groups are asking their members and the angling public to voluntarily release spotted seatrout over 18 inches long this spring so that more larger fish have a chance to participate in the 2010 spawning season. State biologists and many anglers are concerned that persistently low temperatures this winter caused widespread ...

Time changes everyting, and nothing at all

A lot can change in 50 years. And a lot can stay the same. A newly erected building can fall into a state of dilapidation and later be restored to its former glory, a scenario that accurately depicts the history of the old Dorchester Consolidated School in Midway. But time has done nothing to erode the bonds of the former students who came back to visit the site Friday night.

Multiple tours linked to PTSD

It wasn't his first tour in Iraq, but his second and third when Joe Callan began wondering how long his luck would last - how many more months he could swerve around bombs buried in the dirt and duck mortars raining from the skies.

It was only natural, considering the horrors he'd seen: One buddy killed when a mortar engulfed his tent in flames. A fresh-faced Marine sniper dead (also a mortar) on his first day in Iraq. A 9-year-old Iraqi boy, blood trickling from his head, after he was mistakenly shot by U.S. troops. An Iraqi grandmother ...

Editor, If offered an opportunity to save a life, would you? Ninety percent of Americans say "yes" to organ donation, yet only a few more than 37 percent of Georgia's population has signed up on our state organ and tissue donor registry.

Coal plants don't deserve our support

While the nation mourns the deaths of 25, and possibly more, coal miners in West Virginia, on Thursday the state of Georgia decided to issue pollution permits for air and water needed to give the go-ahead to Power4Georgians for the construction of a coal-fired plant in Washington County, near Sandersville. Lined up in the wings is the next Power4Georgians' project: another coal plant, this one located in Ben Hill County.
