quote:The boundary today is marked by the Camak Stone, placed by University of Georgia professor James Camak at where he figured the Tennessee-Georgia-Alabama lines should meet.
But twice, in 1818 and again in 1826, he did his surveying with a primitive sextant, unsuitable astronomical charts and the old log and chain method, historian Bart Crattie, of Lookout Mountain, Ga., said in a December interview.
Mr. Crattie, a member of the Surveyors Historical Society, said Mr. Camak had fruitlessly begged the Georgia governor for better equipment.
With the court recently telling them they're only entitled to a third of the water in Lake Lanier, I'm not surprised. They still haven't learned their lesson; they just want to keep consuming from depletable resources.
Come on, Georgians. Much as we love picking on you, I know you're smarter than this. Get some desalinization plants built on the coast and work on water recycling programs until then. You can do better than this!
