The first Earth Day was held on this day in 1970, and depending on who you ask we've since come a long way toward a cleaner world or our planet is in great peril.

Exciting times

These are exciting times. Richmond Hill is on the cusp of renewed growth in a community where it appears that academics have traditionally taken precedent over any other activity in our schools, contrary to the national trend. (Applause) Thank you Superintendant Brewer and Educators. Our overall environment provides a quality of life that continues to draw folks who appreciate the uniqueness of the community.

Brewer on buyout, more

Editor's note: Former school superintendent Sallie Brewer had long been involved with Bryan County Schools when her contract was bought out in February in what became a controversial 4-3 vote by the BoE. She has said little publicly about the buyout until agreeing to do this interview.

A need that needs to be met

I have to admit, when I first moved down to "the South," almost a dozen years ago, I moved into the Henry Ford Plantation thinking this was the "perfect wave," like the movie, "Endless Summer." Sign me up! I gotta catch that tube.

The season of the sand gnat

Just as the first warm breezes of spring roll down upon us and the sweaters and hooded jackets retreat back to their lofty homes at the top of the closet, as if by the gearwork of some great forsaken chronograph, the black scourge has descended upon us.

Fair play

In case you missed it, there are some calling for Treasury Secretary Tim Geitner to step down because of the way he's handled the economy -- surely one of the most difficult jobs in the universe at the moment. Given that the man's only been on the job about six weeks, calls for his head seem a bit rash.

The death of a Redknot

There is a bird called the Redknot but it is not red. It comes in two sizes, skinny sparrow and fat robin. When it comes to distance traveled and obstacles to overcome, this amazing creature is a poster bird for other migratory birds. There are lessons to be learned from observing the Redknot. This little creature, weighing less than five ounces, provides us with another example of the fact that all of nature is 'connected'.

The elderly and the increased risk of fires

Recently a fire disrupted normally peaceful living at an assisted-living complex in Savannah. At around 12:15 a.m. on Feb. 25. a fire ripped through The Woods of Savannah Apartments off Hodgson and Memorial Drive. This fire injured one elderly person, fatally injured another, and forced the frantic evacuation and rescue of several more during the incident. Additionally, five firefighters and six police officers were injured during the blaze. The preliminary investigation led fire officials to determine the improper use of smoking materials led to this tragic event.

Thoughts on Brewer

I've been at this paper for about 2-1/2 years, give or take. During that time I haven't run across anyone as roundly or routinely vilified, talked bad about and apparently just straight out detested as Sallie Brewer.

Has a year gone by already? Studs and duds for 2008

Has a year gone by already? It seems like yesterday that I laid out the first "Studs 'n Duds" list. There were some good ones too in '07. Even carryovers to '08.

Ross Blair gets 'tased'

One of my beats here as a reporter for the Bryan County News is the police beat. I've found there are many advantages to this.

A puzzling plan

It's our view that U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) is a good representative of the people of Georgia. But the support he and others have shown recently passed legislation to 'stimulate the nation's declining housing market' is puzzling. After all, aren't Republicans supposed to be against big government - or is that only when the recipient of government largesse isn't big business?
