Georgia Shrimp Under Siege

Georgia Shrimp Under Siege

Black gill is a fairly common disorder in the shrimp that live in the shoreline waters from Savannah to St. Marys. It is not a disease, but rather is caused by an organism entering the shrimp’s body. It tarnishes the look of the food, though it isn’t harmful to the humans who eat it. Scientists say shrimping is about a $20 million-a-year industry on Georgia’s coast, and they are hoping to find ways of reducing the threat of black gill.  Pictured: Inspecting and studying shrimp and other marine life on the research vessel Savannah.

Abandoned, Not Forgotten

Driving down Ponce de Leon to get to downtown or Piedmont Park or simply to commute home towards Decatur, or maybe even to get a hot donut at the large and busy Krispy Kreme location, hundreds of people a day drive by an abandoned Kodak Building. Many people remember the day when we had to drop film off and days later we would get a package of pictures and negatives we would look through to see if there were a few redeemable pictures to paste into photo albums. Photo processing went to "Same Day" service and many of us found it as a luxury, or (nearly) an instantaneous gratification treat.  Kids today don't remember when the buildings like this held the memories of thousands of people, waiting to be picked up or mailed out. It's hard to teach the way we...
