Our winners from the May 2013 issue are Jerry Hall, of Blairsville, who took the photo, and Janice Cheek, of Dublin, who correctly guessed that it is a train trestle over the Ocmulgee River just outside Lumber City. The operator’s building could be turned to allow for passage by boats, one at a time. “I grew up in Lumber City and never walked the train tracks over the river, as a few daring teens did,” Cheek writes. May 2013 8 More online at Federal and state relations There is no listing of the powers of the states in the U.S. Constitution. The Founding Fathers wrote the Constitution to define the structure and powers of a new national government, which was a creation of the states. The states retained the powers they had exercised in the past, with the exception of those responsibilities delegated to the federal government. To clarify the relationship between the federal government and the states, the first Congress proposed, and the states ratified, the 10th Amendment. The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States, respectively, or to the people. —10th Amendment In “Federalist No. 45,” James Madison wrote about the powers of the states: “The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite.” Article IV of the Constitution addresses federal-state relations in four short sections: Section 1 requires each state to accept the legal proceedings of other states. Section 2 requires a state to treat its citizens and citizens from other states equally. It also charges governors to return fugitives to the state where an alleged crime was committed. Section 3 provides for the admission of new states to the union and gives Congress the power to handle claims regarding U.S. territories that have not yet become states. Section 4 charges the federal government to guarantee each state a “republican” or representative form of government and to protect states from invasion, as well as from domestic violence if a state requests assistance. —Jim Jess GEORGIA MAGAZINE
