Researchers, whose results appear in the March issue of the journal Applied and Environmental Microbiology, tested water over a one-year period in rivers and streams in a region of south Georgia known for its high rate of sporadic salmonella cases. The team found salmonella in 79 percent of water samples, with the highest concentrations and the greatest diversity of strains in the summer and after rainfall.

Morality does have a place in government

Editor, As I read the article about the adult entertainment owners I was saddened by some of the quotes by our county leaders and by attorney Kimberly Copeland. One of the comments made by Copeland was that, "Morality has no place in government." I totally disagree with Miss Copeland and she must have slept through American government class in college.

Editor, In my humble opinion, the failure of the Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax was not a criticism of the tax, but rather of the excessive - and perhaps arrogant - spending of our tax dollars by our elected officials.
