More than a dozen Georgia roadless areas are expected to get new protections. A federal judge has upheld a Clinton-era ban on new roads on federal land. The ruling affects more than a dozen areas in North Georgia's Chattahoochee National Forest. The decision clears the way for the Obama administration to start enforcing the so-called "roadless rule."
National Park Service officials say, they won't let people stay in historic homes on Cumberland Island. Leasing the homes is a point of contention at the National Seashore. Wilderness advocates want fewer people living on the island. Historic preservationists, however, worry, the Park Service doesn't have the resources to keep the homes in good condition.
