That fish kill, that’s going to be a lot of ink, a lot of pixels and a lot of billable hours for years to come. ’Cause there are 65 lawsuits on it.
After a 2011 fish kill in the Ogeechee River starting from Screven County, some landowners downstream of the King [...]
So, I’ve been going around ranting that some news stories profit from being told with pictures rather than words.
Thus, for your consideration, a story about the state grades given to Georgia high schools.
Ps, there’s one school that ranks above 100. That’s accurate. A school can get bonus points if it serves like, harder-to-serve [...]
These are the U.S.’ biggest ports by “container” “volume,” also showing depth.
A “container” is the big metal shipping box you see piled in Hulsey Yard on the east side MARTA in Old Fourth Ward, or carried by an eighteen-wheeler or rolling on a train. Containers come [...]
People often say to me: “The newspaper stinks. The newspaper missed the point. The newspaper didn’t cover [insert your thing here].”

Here’s Georgia’s spending for the year that began July 1, 2011.
Well, about half of it.
This graph shows nearly $16 billion. There’s another nearly $11 billion in matching federal funds that Georgia has to spend on what the feds say. There’s another $8 billion from “other” funds, and I’m not quite sure what [...]
This was announced. It’s from the tree farmers & associated industries lobby, the Georgia Forestry Association:
Presenting Dr. Seuss’ classic tale…in theatres Friday, March 2.
The Georgia Forestry Association and the Georgia Forestry Foundation have partnered with the Georgia Forestry Commission to give away 60,000 tree seedlings statewide in celebration of the [...]
I’ll boast here. I’ve gotten several compliments on my new overcoat, which makes me feel good. But what makes me feel better is that it was free and it reminds me of my friend Therese. I got her coat at a naked lady party.
