Hamburg presentation

A presentation on Hamburg: The Forgotten Town will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the North Augusta Community Center, 495 Brookside Ave.

Hamburg was a town that existed from 1821 to 1929 on the South Carolina side of the Fifth Street bridge.

Speakers for the presentation are Lauren Virgo, executive director of the Arts and Heritage Center of North Augusta, and Milledge Murray, board member and exhibits chairman for the center and vice president of the Heritage Council.

The event is free.

Authorities in South Carolina are investigating a fish kill at Brick Pond Park.

The event, which involved about 40 fish, is likely to be weather related, said Tonya Bontatibus, the executive director of the environmental group Savannah Riverkeeper.

Periods of hot, then cool weather, interspersed with heavy cold rains, can cause a sudden loss of oxygen in ponds or streams, which in turn can result in a fish kill, said Georgia Wildlife Resources fisheries biologist Ed Bettross.

Bettross said he is aware of similar die-offs in Georgia in recent months.
