GNB Update

It's Friday, the end of another long work week...Here's what's happening...

A Mercer University professor gets some recognition. The Atlanta Business Chronicle reports that it honored Dr. Han Va Vo with its 2010 Health Care Heroes Award Thursday night. He earned honors for his work in designing artificial limbs in third-world nations. That included his native Vietnam. It was the 13th year that the Chronicle has given its Health Care Heroes Award.

No funding for the Flint RiverQuarium. That was what Richard Crowdis told the Dougherty County Commission's finance committee recently. The Albany Herald reports that the county administrator recommended that all funding for the Albany-based water museum be cut off for fiscal year 2011. Earlier this week, RiverQuarium Director Scott Loehr told county commissioners that would like funding for the facility to continue in some capacity.

A bizarre sight in an suburban Atlanta neighborhood. The Gwinnett Daily Post reports that police in Gwinnett County captured a five-foot alligator at a local subdivision last week. Authorities and the Department of Natural Resources relocated have since relocated to reptile to south Georgia.
