GNB Update

One more day until Friday...Here's the news...

More questions than answers as to why fire destroyed a Georgia landmark late last week. reports that although investigators completed their investigation into the fire that burned down the Georgia Theatre in Athens last Friday, they won't say what caused it. Local, state, and federal officials still must interview witnesses and others who saw the fire break out. While arson hasn't been ruled out, investigators also refused to comment on whether or not accelerant-sniffing dogs found anything suspicious earlier this week. Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, & Firearms spokesperson Marc Jackson told that no final information about the cause of the fire until all participating agencies finish comparing their notes.

The world's largest fish tank reaches a big milestone. The Associated Press reports that the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta welcomed its 10 millionth visitor Tuesday. Atlanta's Annette Kalber was the lucky guest. She made the most of her history-making visit, as she took a free dive in the six-million gallon Oceans Voyager tank, among other things. The aquarium plans to open a dolphin exhibit in 2010.
