By Tarana Mayes

Updated July 3: Arthur is now a Category 1 hurricane positioned east of Savannah, Georgia. The nearest significant impact to land is expected to occur in Charleston, South Carolina, which is beginning to feel the effects of Arthur’s outer bands. Models calculate landfall on July 4 near North Carolina's Outer Banks, however, tropical storm warnings are currently in place 20 miles off the coast of Savannah, and marine warnings and rip current warnings will remain in place at least until tonight. Beachgoers should use extreme caution due to the potential for rip currents.

By Christian Sottile
Posted June 26, 2014 by Christian Sottile

The future of preservation: Will a new generation take up the cause?

By Tarana Mayes
Posted June 16, 2014 by Tarana Mayes
Growing up, I regularly thumbed through family photo albums. This ritual of navigating the worn, yellowing pages of images, as if I were traversing history, was eye opening.
