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 ...
Philippe Cousteau's EarthEcho International, Inc. and The Dolphin Project (a non-profit, all-volunteer research and education organization based in Savannah) met at the Georgia Capital on Tuesday, March 24 to promote House Bill 639 for a "Protect Wild Dolphins" specialty license plate.
Richmond Hill and other state municipalities are celebrating Georgia Cities Week this week. Sponsored by the Georgia Municipal Association, it is an opportunity for cities to showcase what they do for their citizens and also highlight the contributions cities make to the overall well-being of a community.
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.
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.
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.
Richard Davis' announcement that he won't seek another term as mayor of Richmond Hill means the end of an era, the Richard Davis era.
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.
Have you ever tried to figure out a maze? You travel down a path and find yourself at a dead end, forcing you to backtrack to find another way out. Well, Midway is in that maze right now - it's called the city charter.
Mama was stubborn. "Set in her ways," is what country folks call it and boy, was she. When she made up her mind, nothing stopped her. Especially when she set her jaw and punctuated her declaration with a firm nod of her head. If she also threw that crooked forefinger in your direction, you knew that it was set in stone. Destined to be.
Columbus lost a huge one in court this week, and it wasn't even close. The Georgia Supreme Court ruled unanimously Monday that a 2012 Muscogee County Superior Court decision protecting trees along Georgia rights-of-way is invalid.
I learned a few years back that it doesn't pay to clean out your sock drawers.
Editor, Saturday, May 11, was the birthday of well-known Hinesville entrepreneur and philanthropist Gary W. Dodd. I'd like to thank my dear friend and Kirk Healing Center for the Homeless co-founder for all he has done for Hinesville and, especially, for the homeless men and women we serve.
Although you, my devoted readers and fans, likely are reading this on Mother's Day, it was written several days ahead of time, so I have no idea what kinds of surprises this special day will hold for me.
Editor: I see that Liberty County is still trying to take away Midway's fire department by using fear tactics. If Liberty County wants full-time firefighters in Midway, all the county has to do is send some of Midway's property taxes back to the city so that the city can hire the full-time firefighters.
