A coastal-area environmental group and five public agencies have come together to clear up confusion about fish advisories in the Brunswick area. The partnership aims to put in one place the myriad advice fishermen receive about which fish to eat, where to catch them and how much is too much. State officials produce a 60 page book on the topic.
State health officials have begun what they're calling a long overdue re-evaluation of their HIV/AIDS strategy after more than a decade of rising infection rates among gay men. Rates nationally have been going up in part because younger gay men have no memory of the AIDS crisis of the 1980's and because new drugs have extended the lives of the HIV positive. The state's Coastal Health District will hold a meeting on the strategy in Savannah on Monday.
