Raising timber may raise cane

August 03, 2005

Bainbridge-- Raising sunken logs from the Flint River in Decatur County may be pricier than expected.

The process is called deadheading. And under a policy being proposed, "Deadheaders" will have to pay $10,000 dollars per permit. They would also have to pay a $50,000 dollar bond against non-compliance of rules, or site damage.

Hundreds of logs in the Flint fell off lumber rafts as far back as the 1800's. They're considered extremely valuable because of their unique timber.
