Our schools are designed to be "student-focused and future-driven." This simply means that we are here to prepare our students for the future by ensuring that they obtain the skills and knowledge necessary to be successful. We will help them acquire this knowledge and skill set by focusing on each and every student who steps in the doors of our classrooms. Accomplishing these tasks will not be possible without our Board of Education, faculty, ...
When school was out we'd laugh and shout because we knew that when our chores were done we'd have time for lots of fun.
Today, The Dolphin Project celebrates its 20th anniversary with a shindig at J.F. Gregory Park.
Dear Editor: The success of any planned development can depend on the attention given to details. The Waterways marina plan proposed by Mr. Paul Fletcher is no exception. The offer to share the facility with the public is very enticing but the devil is in the details. As a lifetime resident of this coast, a boater, and, a wacky environmentalist, I strongly support increasing desperately needed public access to our ...
Twenty years ago I spoke with a well-to-do Savannah lawyer who owned a large, impressive house in the Isle of Hope section of Chatham County. A long walk ramp went out to his private dock in the Skidaway River.
A couple of weeks ago we had to put down our dog. Riley wasn't just any dog. He did not slobber or jump all over you. If he decided you were one of "his people" he would greet you with a wag of the tail and if you were really special he would lay his ears back, smile, and come over for a brief pat and then go back to doing what he did ...
Georgia's Department of Transportation has new leadership. The Transportation Board elected state Rep. Vance Smith to the post of DOT Commissioner while Todd Long, a former DOT engineer, was nominated by Gov. Sonny Perdue to be the department's first planning director.
Fortunately for me, there are some things you don't need a lot of brains to figure out.
I'm really tempted to write President Obama a letter. Maybe someone can just email him over a copy of this column instead. He's listed.
In our experience, there are three words politicians with an eye on staying in office generally tend to avoid: millage rate increase. After all, just to say them is to invite the wrath of property owners tired of bearing so much of the burden for government.
The EPD will hold a public meeting at the Midway Auditorium at 6:30 p.m. on the evening of May 27th.
Dear Editor I would like to comment on the item on page five of the April 29 issue of the Bryan County News. I find it incredible that someone can put the title "Columnist" by their name (Bill Shipp) who doesn't do any research and only uses his feelings. He stated "Deadly shootings are occurring with greater frequency;" however, a simple Google search will show that the U.S. murder ...
Drive anywhere in coastal Georgia these days and what's the first thing that is likely to come to mind?
Only a handful of people know what happened on April 14, when law enforcement officers -- including newly appointed Pembroke Police Chief Mark Crowe -- and a handful of North Bryan residents were involved in an incident that led to several arrests and the use of considerable force against Tommy Lee Williams, one of those arrested.
I am a big fan of most dogs and always have been. I say most because as a rule I tend not to care much for so-called lap dogs, and that includes many chihuahuas I have come across. This is not meant to insult lap dogs or their owners, but merely to state a fact. They probably don't care much for me, either, or wouldn't if they met me. I can live ...
Since she started day care six weeks ago, my little girl hasn't had an easy go of it. Having stayed at home with one parent or another the entire first year of her life, Reese's immune system hasn't built up much resistance, and she seems to pick up every bug, virus, flu and cold within a 5-mile radius.
For some, July 8, 2010, was a momentous day in the state of Georgia - but not for a good reason.
Sixty-nine years ago last Thursday, Allied forces stormed the heavily fortified beaches of Normandy. Through their courage and sacrifice, they cut a foothold in Northern France and began a march that culminated in victory.
I have said it before, but let me repeat: I have no problem with charter schools. I did have a big problem with the ham-handed way last November's charter-school referendum was rammed through by proponents.
Identity theft continues to be a real problem in the United States - and our senior population is at extreme risk.
Georgia's citizens have been kept in the dark regarding two troubling occurrences related to the ongoing update of the Jekyll Island State Park Master Plan:
What was thought by many, especially on the left, to be domestic overreach by the George W. Bush administration in the name of national security now appears to be standard practice under the Obama administration.
I'm a bit old-fashioned when it comes to values. Now, mind you, I'm not talking about politics here; I try to steer clear of hot-button issues when it comes to this column. However, I could see how the two could become easily confused or even intertwined.
Charlie Tinker, according to his diary, was feeling poorly on the morning of April 15, 1865. He had left the office April 12 and gone home to bed. A doctor visited and said he must stay in bed since he had an intermittent fever.
