SAVANNAH, Ga. - Prosecutors plan to seek a criminal indictment next month in the death of a 22-year-old college student at the Chatham County jail.
Landowners, lawmakers and local governments along the route of the so-called Palmetto Pipeline are still seeking answers to questions as fundamental as where the pipeline will run and how it will benefit Georgians.
RICHMOND HILL, Ga. -- Heading into the first official hearing for the Palmetto Pipeline on Tuesday evening, dozens of protesters lined the long driveway into the Richmond Hill City Center, wearing anti-pipeline T-shirts and carrying signs such as "DOT asleep at the wheel" and "Keep jobs in Georgia" and "Governor say no deal."
Petroleum pipelines have a peculiar past in Georgia. Their history was built on support of national defense in World War II and altered in the 1990s by angry and influential plantation owners.
South Carolina's transportation department has given a Texas company permission to conduct surveys on a state right-of-way in preparation for a pipeline route study.
The Georgia DOT is expecting more than 100 people, and anti-pipeline groups are expecting even more at the first public hearing about the Palmetto Pipeline.
If there's evidence the pipeline will increase competition, decrease prices or create permanent jobs in Georgia, we haven't seen it.
