AMERICUS, Ga. -- Let it be known that when China needed more chopsticks, the country of 1.3 billion people turned to the south-central Georgia city of Americus.

It may seem strange that for all the products that China exports to this country, it should need to look outside its borders for --- of all things ---
chopsticks.

But the country does not have the wood needed to manufacture enough of the slender utensils, which the majority of Chinese still use and throw away.
