GNB Update

It's Thursday...It's hard to believe that the weekend is just around the corner...

A southwest Georgia dentist is recognized as one of the world's top cosmetic dentists. reports that Dr. Thomas Oppenheim of Thomasville recently earned "Accredited Fellow" status in the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. He joins a group of 51 such dentists in that speciality. Oppenheim has had a general practice for 30 years.

Staying in southwest Georgia, SWGA Politics has its take on how a select group of state senators on certain bills. There's even a challenge on why those lawmakers voted the way they did. Interesting read.

The plummeting economy has claimed another victim. This time the casualty is a familiar charity. The Make-A-Wish Foundation closed the doors to its Macon office last Friday. It also closed its Savannah office. The cases handled in both cities will now move to Atlanta. Make-A-Wish Georgia CEO Kathy Hammond says that of rate of wishes that have been granted will continue at the same rate as in years past. Last year, 71 wishes were granted in the Macon area alone.

And one south Georgia city took a huge step towards going green earlier this week. The Valdosta city council made one of many changes in that direction by annual retreat closer to home. It also bought its first hybrid welcome, not to mention switching from a paper-based to a electronic agenda.

That's the news for Thursday. But remember to log on to, and tell everyone you know to read the news about Georgia not available anywhere else. Have a good evening.


  1. Eh, it isn't so much a challenge to them as simply saying that if they would like a place to explain to us why they voted how they did *ahem*SB 31*ahem*, if they get in touch with me I will post it @ SWGA Politics to help get the word out, whether I agree with their reasoning or not.

  2. Thank you. Sorry for the misintrepretation.
