Right whales return to Georgia waters

BRUNSWICK -- It is seen from a research vessel lookout - a solitary V-shaped "blow" and then something dark on the water's surface. Often, the return of right whales to Georgia is as subtle as that. But this winter, thanks to a new ruling more of these mperiled whales will have a better chance at making the annual journey safely.

In October, the National Marine Fisheries Service established a rule that will implement speed restrictions for vessels 65 feet or longer. The restrictions call for a speed of no more than 10 knots during certain times of the year in areas ...

Editor, An editorial cartoon by R. McKee serves as a modern take on the old Hans Christian Anderson tale about the emperor who was swindled by to weavers who promise to make him a suit of clothes that is invisible to people who are stupid and incompetent. When the emperor and his cabinet members cannot see the clothes, they pretend to be able to see them for fear of being deemed unfit for their positions.
