    Two interesting links via the Internet Scout:

    South Georgia Historic Newspapers Archive

    “A number of institutions around the United States have been working day and
    night to digitize regional and small town newspapers from the 19th and 20th
    centuries. This website presents the fruits of one such project, crafted by
    the Digital Library of Georgia with funds administered by the Institute of
    Museum and Library Services (IMLS). The archive provides access to papers
    from southern Georgia from the years 1845-1922, and it includes the Albany
    News, the Americus Times Recorder, and the Valdosta Times. Visitors can
    search the newspapers by year, title, city, or keyword”.

    Introducing Treshr

    “Sometimes you’d just like to be able to find a lightly used sofa or an old
    record player without much fuss. Treshr offers users the ability to do just
    that with its helpful mashup that brings listings from Freecycle and
    Craigslist together with Google Maps. Visitors can search the listings for
    items of interest and they can also learn more about Treshr via their “FAQ”
    area. Currently, the listings are only available in New York City,
    Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and San Francisco, but they will be
    expanding over the coming months”.

    Supreme Court Blocks Judges’ Redistricting Plan in Texas Case

    The Supreme Court on Friday instructed a lower court in Texas to take a fresh look at election maps it had drawn in place of a competing set of maps from the Texas Legislature. The justices said the lower court had not paid enough deference to the Legislature’s choices and had improperly substituted its own values for those of elected officials.
