Rural areas must remain vigilant

I’ve been watching and reading about plans in southwest Georgia for building a ‘mini-city’ that would be home – albeit temporary – for some 30,000 primates. Bainbridge, a town of about 14,000 in Decatur County borders Lake Seminole and is only a few miles from my native Baker County. Happenings in that part of the state capture my attention, due to childhood familiarity with the area, and because not much ever happens in that mostly unspoiled rural setting.
