In this picture dated Nov. 3, 2012, a man walks past an abandoned army bridge that has been targeted by metal robbers, at the village of Adendro, in northern Greece. When Greece adopted the euro, it poured billions into modernizing its infrastructure, building spectacular bridges, highways, and a brand new rail transit network for Athens. Now, locked in recession and crushed by debt, Greeks are targeting many of those projects, gouging out the metal and selling it for scrap to feed ravenous demand driven by China and India.

4-of -5 old wooden bridges in Geneva County are being replaced with one-and-a-half million dollars in Federal Emergency Managment agency funds.
Crews are busy replacing the Old Ben Pate Road Bridge outside of Black.
That bridge and several others were destroyed in March of 2009.
It took local officials countless hours of lobbying to finally secure the funds.
