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.

North Meets South, But It’s No Civil War

North Meets South, But It’s No Civil War

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.

NASA selects Cartersville museum to Tweet Mars rover launch

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- NASA will launch an SUV size rover to explore the Martian surface on Saturday, and Georgia's Tellus Science Museum will have a front row seat inside Kennedy Space Center this week to "tweet" about the flight.

Selected by @NASA on Twitter, @TellusMuseum will join 149 space enthusiasts who use the social media service to discuss prelaunch activities and the behind the scene's work of the space agency.

To "tweet" is to type out up to 140 characters and send to a chat-style thread on Twitter.com. Images and links to specific web sites can also be used in a tweet.

Tellus' Director of Marketing, Joe Schulman, will be the person in the field representing the Cartersville museum -- taking pictures and describing the sights and sounds around the Florida spaceport as the launch nears.
