What's Next For An Old Asylum? Jobs Or History?

Barbeque smoke was in the air and a country band was belting out “Wagon Wheel” when Margreta and Bill Smith set foot in the pecan orchard at Central State Hospital in Milledgeville for the first time in over 20 years. The Smiths met and married in the 1950s when both of them were among the thousands of people employed at this legendary psychiatric hospital. Margreta was a nurse and Bill was an attendant. An employee reunion picnic within sight of the iconic, white domed Powell Building is what brought them back. “When we came here, it was the second largest mental institution in the world,” Margreta said. “We had 12,000 patients on the grounds and they had a safe place, which is the meaning of the word asylum.” Central State was as much a small town then as it was an asylum. The 12,000 patients were served by their own farm and a 100,000 square foot kitchen that churned out 90,000 meals a day. In the days before sedation from psychiatric drugs, patients often just walked the grounds.

The Sun Sets On 'Murder Kroger'

Atlanta may see a first: Tonight thousands of people may come to a candlelight vigil for a grocery store. "Murder Kroger" as it's known closes its door tomorrow, October 28 after serving Ponce de Leon Avenue for three decades. GPB's Stephen Fowler was live at "Murder Kroger" in the shadow of Ponce City Market. Rickey Bevington: So let's begin with why many Atlantans call this supermarket "Murder Kroger." Stephen Fowler: Murder Kroger. It's been the subject of articles, songs, and even its own Wikipedia page. In 1991 a woman was shot and killed in the parking lot. The AJC then called it "Scary Kroger," but eventually it morphed into "Murder" instead. In 2002 someone found a dead body in the parking lot. Most recently a man was shot outside the building in 2015 where he later died. So it's not exactly a death trap to go buy some sugar but like Atlanta traffic and anything named Peachtree. The name stuck a few years ago the murder Kroger got a makeover and officials tried to get the name

Coastal Ga. Weekend: Savannah And Coastal Events Oct. 27-30

With Halloween on the horizon and several festivals in the area, it's a busy weekend for Coastal Georgia. Mahogany Bowers of Blessings in a Bookbag and Lauren Cleland of Visit Savannah help you navigate it.

The festival has a little something for everyone: costume contests, a pub crawl, the Pirate Victory Parade and the Little Matey's Cove for the kids. It all culminates in Sunday night's Buccaneer Ball. Friday-Sunday; $12 Friday, $15 Saturday, $25 weekend pass. -Car aficionados can head to

On Second Thought For Tuesday, October 25, 2016

Two weeks. That’s all we have to go until Election Day. All eyes are focused on the battle for the presidency, but you need to look further down the ballot to find the races that most affect you. Bill Nigut, host of GPB’s “Political Rewind” and “Two Way Street,” stops by to talk about down-ballot races and what to expect in Georgia on November 8th. Then, within the span of two months in 2015, several children living in or near Waycross, GA were diagnosed with similar types of very rare and aggressive cancers. Their families and the community are still struggling to find out why and what, if anything, is being done to make sure other people don’t get sick. We talk with Andy Miller, editor and CEO of Georgia Health News, and WebMD staff writer Brenda Goodman about their new, special report updating the investigation into a possible cancer cluster in Waycross. Plus, a new book has fueled the indoor-outdoor cat debate by calling for the removal of all outdoor cats by any means necessary.
