Army Corps limits water flow from Lake Lanier

Army Corps limits water flow from Lake Lanier

ATLANTA -- The flow of water from a reservoir that serves much of Metro Atlanta will be restricted as a conservation step during an ongoing drought.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced Wednesday that it will cut the flow of water from the dam at Lake Lanier from 750 cubic feet per second to 650 cubic feet per second. Army Corps spokesman Pat Robbins said the goal is to save water in case the drought gets worse.

If more water is available in Lake Lanier, more can be released later on to supplement river systems.

Georgia officials asked for the conservation step earlier this month.

Army officials said they evaluated information from Georgia authorities and determined that decreasing the flow of water into the Chattahoochee River will not harm the environment.

GAINESVILLE: Hero rescues blind man from fire

GAINESVILLE: Hero rescues blind man from fire

GAINESVILLE, Ga. -- A man crawled underneath smoke to rescue a blind 76-year-old man from his burning Gainesville home after spotting the blaze from a nearby business.

Gainesville Fire Chief Jon Canada said the blind man and his rescuer were both treated for smoke inhalation after the Monday morning fire.

Canada said firefighters found fire and smoke in the 1,000-square-foot house when they arrived to battle the blaze, which happened at around 3:30 a.m. Authorities say the man was rescued shortly before firefighters arrive.

The rescuer made a split-second decision that resulted in saving the man's life, Canada said. Neither man's name was immediately available.

Michigan-based History Site Forms Alliance with Georgia-based Test Creation Site and Everybody Wins

If you remember anything about history class, hopefully you know about that little scuffle between the North and the South called the Civil War.  But what about the details, and how much do you remember about the people who were part of this history?  Chances are, not much.  Learning history used to mean reading copy-heavy textbooks, highlighting in yellow, memorizing dates and dry facts, and then hoping you could remember what you highlighted long enough to take a test.

Thanks to “at your fingertips” knowledge made possible by technology, many schools are either doing away with hard copy textbooks or relying on them a lot less. With the abundance of learning tools now available on the Web, textbooks are taking a back seat, in some cases, to educational web sites and hands-on activities.
