Richmond Hill's decision to begin using motorcycle cops may seem a bit farfetched at first.
About eight or nine months ago (time flies when you're having fun), I was convinced by News Publisher Mark Griffin that I should apply for a spot in the 2008 Leadership Bryan class.
After more than half a century as a teacher, administrator and public official in the Bryan County school system, Frances Meeks is calling it a career. All of Bryan County should thank her for her service and wish her a long, fulfilling and happy retirement.
Simply amazing! That was my reaction to seeing the painted bunting for the first time just two weeks ago. Last summer I was busy unpacking after a long cross-country trip from the West coast, so I missed seeing this "Easter egg" of the birding world. By the time I looked up from underneath the mountain of boxes I was under, they were gone.
Dear Editor: My name is LaKeya King and I attend Richmond Hill High School. I'm currently in 12th grade and will graduate May 24. My family relocated to Richmond Hill due to my dad being an officer in the United States Army. We have lived here for seven years. While I have been here I notice how beautiful and peaceful it is living in this neighborhood. Richmond Hill has grown tremendously. ...
Certainly a major area of concern for motor truckers and the average American family is the high price of gas that is continuing to hamper our economy. Of particular concern to me is the increased cost of diesel fuel and its effects on the trucking industry. I believe this problem underscores our need to invest in a robust domestic fuels infrastructure, focusing on cellulosic biodiesel and other fuels.
I'm going to start off by noting I don't know who sent this email Thursday to reporter Jessica Holthaus. She doesn't know who it is either.
Dear Editor: In response to Ms. DeBry's column of April 19: I don't know many people who haven't used a "pie" chart to illustrate something. I'm still trying to figure out how Michelle Obama's use of one could have raised so much "ire." She has been in public service for years and I'll just bet she earned every penny that she has. All Democrats are not on welfare, I thought ...
My friend Elizabeth Johnson is a boat captain on Tybee Island. For a living she takes anglers 50 to 75 miles off the coast and tells them how to bait up and where to cast and how to reel in. She's the kind of person who goes at life like Earl Scruggs goes at banjo, which is full tilt boogie.
"Traditional gardening, landscaping and landscape maintenance practices are often driven by outdated aesthetic fashion and shortsighted economic interests, with little ethical consideration. As a result, our traditional practices are often quite harmful to our health and the environment in general." - from the EPA
There are vastly differing views on the changes made by the Jekyll Island Authority and Linger Longer Communities in a major development project reported and commented upon recently in the media. The so-called concession to keep the 'town center' project out of the Shore Protection Act jurisdiction is certainly welcome, but hardly magnanimous - nor evidently all that it first appeared to be.
Howdy All, Richmond Hill High School Soccer gets it!! I want to take this opportunity to share all of the wonderful things happening in Richmond Hill High School's Soccer program. As many of the local parents, recreation department organizers, TV and Print newsmen, and co-workers at RHHS and Bryan County Schools have come to know; Coach Wright (RHHS Boys) and myself (RHHS Girls) have worked very hard over the last four ...
Try this hot scoop for a piece of outright absurdity: Knowing she has no chance of winning the Democratic nomination, Hillary Clinton continues to run full speed ahead against Barack Obama for president.
Internet-savvy bank customers in Georgia can go online and check and balance their accounts from the comfort of their home, even at 2 in the morning. But let that same taxpayer be curious at 10 a.m. about how his taxes are being spent in Georgia, and he'd have a tough time finding out.
Editor: With regard to the proposed conference center, the reason for all the controversy is the change in scope and location – from a convention and aquatic center on Brisbon Road to a conference center and hotel at J.F. Gregory Park. The first public mention of a hotel was at a city council meeting where an artist's rendering was presented. A few days later at an Arts on the ...
There is a misconception among some in Washington that the success of our poverty-assistance programs should be measured by how much we spend on them and how many people receive benefits.
The federal government is running out of money again, and Congress needs to pass legislation to fund fiscal 2014, which starts Oct. 1. Thus, Congress and the president will soon be debating whether to raise the limit on the nation's credit card.
You may have read that the United States Supreme Court is going to hear a case about whether or not prayer can be uttered in town councils across America. Last year, a federal appeals court ruled that such a nefarious deed violated the First Amendment's ban on an "establishment of religion."
Editor, As a taxpayer and resident of the first district, I would like to know why county workers are again filling quarter-size holes on Bacontown Road? Isn't this road going to be paved in 2014?
On July 29, in a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens requested an emergency extension to the deadline for approving rates in the upcoming insurance exchange to be implemented in Georgia.
It is of paramount importance that I teach my husband how to be a Southerner, at least a half-decent one, if not one of regal bearing.
