Dahlonega city officials are preparing for a pro-Trump rally and possible counter protests on Saturday in the town square. 

According to a flyer for the "American Patriot Rally,” it’s an event to honor the flag and President Trump. But promoters of the rally have a history of ties to the Ku Klux Klan, and the event has been heavily shared on white supremacist websites.

 


The world has six fewer North Atlantic Right Whales after a summer of loss for the endangered species. Four of the animals have died in the last week alone, and three of them were of breeding age.

The whales are Georgia's state marine mammal, and biologists are alarmed these deaths bring the species even closer to extinction. Clay George is a wildlife biologist with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. He's among those monitoring the numbers, and he spoke with On Second Thought about the dwindling population, the role of the Georgia coast in the whales' life cycle and the origins of their name.
