Feature Friday: The Rusty Lantern Workshop

   


The Rusty Lantern Workshop in Rainsville, owned by locals Teresa Davis and Lanita Allen, is a quaint mix of a gift shop meets upscale estate sale meets handmade market. Everything in the store is staged perfectly, save for the bustle of new pieces constantly arriving.

Chevrolet Testing Autonomous Chevrolet Bolts

According to the Detroit Free Press, GM recently finished constructing 130 autonomous Chevrolet Bolt test cars.

The vehicles were built in Chevrolet's Lake Orion plant. The article says the automaker already made 50 Bolts, so that brings the total number of autonomous vehicles to 180. The 50 cars were retrofitted with special sensors so the cars could essentially drive themselves.

GM has been making the second batch of Bolts since January. The white cruiser can easily be detected as an autonomous test car because its roof rack will have...
