After Outcry, Savannah City Council Moves To Restore Arts Funding

The Savannah City Council on Thursday walked back from a plan to cut about $400,000 in funding for social service and arts organizations. The move came after supporters of the groups facing cuts packed the council meeting to voice their concerns. Many speakers argued against reducing arts funding to put more money toward public safety, a reason often cited for the cuts proposed in the 2017 city budget. Dare Dukes runs Deep Center, a youth writing program. "Surely we can have a more holistic, long-range approach to neighborhood safety and well-being," he told the council. "A smart investment in safety doesn't pit policing against youth programs; it supports both." Dukes and representatives from other local groups argued that arts and social services programs themselves improve public safety, in part by providing activities and services for at-risk youth. Mayor Eddie DeLoach and members of the council voiced support for those programs as well, and asked City Manager Rob Hernandez to find

How Ready For College And Work Are Georgia's Kids?

How ready are Georgia's kids for college and work? According to numbers released by the Georgia Department of Education, they are not quite as ready as they were last year. The Department of Education looks at a number of measurements, everything from standardized test scores, how well kids perform in advanced academic tracks as well as in vocational programs, even school attendance to put together their College and Career Ready Performance Index. For 2016, the average for all schools in the state was 73.6 points out of a possible 100. Last year it as 75.5 points. This year, elementary schools showed the steepest drop on the index. The lowest ranking school district was in Dooly County where Governor Nathan Deal recently suspended the school board. They scored 46.8 points. That follows a general pattern of the lowest assessed schools being found generally in the state's traditional agricultural midsection. The highest performing system was in Oconee County outside of Athens with 93

Drought, The South's Unwelcome Guest, Stays Despite Rains

Recent showers and storms have slightly eased the South's severe drought, but experts say it wasn't enough to make up for months of dry conditions before the rain finally fell. Nearly the entire region remains abnormally dry, and much more rain is needed before the drought's demise can be declared, said Mark Svoboda, who directs the National Drought Mitigation Center. The center's weekly U.S. Drought Monitor, released Thursday, describes some improvement due to recent rains, but its map shows the South stubbornly covered in oranges, reds and browns, which is bad news for a region becoming accustomed to wildfires. "It takes a long time to go into a drought and it takes a long time to get out of it, and this one has been a doozy," Georgia State Climatologist Bill Murphey said. A large brown area of "exceptional drought" — the very worst conditions — still covers large swaths of Georgia and Alabama. That's surrounded by red, indicating "extreme" drought, in parts of Tennessee and the

BREAKING: Police: Suspect In Officer Shootings Is Dead

12:15 p.m. Police say a man suspected of shooting two Georgia police officers is dead. Phyllis Banks, a police spokeswoman in Americus, told The Associated Press on Thursday: "It's confirmed that the suspect is dead." That was after a SWAT team went into a home where authorities had received a tip that 32-year-old Minquell Lembrick was hiding. Banks declined to give further information, including whether police had shot Lembrick or merely found his body. Police planned a 1 p.m. news conference. Lembrick was wanted in the slaying Wednesday of Americus police officer Nicholas Smarr, who was shot outside an apartment complex along with Georgia Southwestern State University officer Jody Smith. Smith survived the attack but was critically wounded. ___ 12 p.m. Authorities say a SWAT team is staking out a home where a man suspected of shooting two Georgia police officers may be hiding. Georgia Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Nelly Miles said police received a tip Thursday from a citizen

Music Minute: Brenda Lee, Atlanta's 'Queen Of Christmas'

On December 8, 1956, 11-year-old Atlanta native Brenda Lee released her first single, "I'm Gonna Lasso Santa Claus." Lee was one of the top vocalists of the 1960s, singing pop and country music. But she is perhaps best remembered for another holiday classic, "Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree." The song has endured as a holiday standard for more than 50 years. Happy holidays to Atlanta’s “Little Miss Dynamite," who is still on tour at age 71.
