Bulloch History – The Olliffs come to Bulloch County

The name Olliff has a long and storied role in the formation of early Bulloch County. According to many colonial records, the earliest Olliff may have been known (purposely or accidentally) been known by a slightly different (but similar sounding) name. For European immigrants, this situation often arose from a simple misspelling of the name made by whoever was writing the documents. One thing is certain: John Shears Olliff, the first Olliff born in America, was born in 1752 to John and Mary Shears Olliff in Duplin County, North Carolina. Most historians agree he died in either 1801 or 1802.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Pull-ups are permissible in special cases

Q: My 23-month-old son does well with potty training when we're at home. We use a "potty bell" and he goes every 90 minutes or so. When we're away from home, however, he seems clueless. He pees in his car seat about 5 minutes into a trip and simply will not use a potty anywhere but at our home or at my mother's (she watches him one day a week at her place). Would pull-ups be a bad thing to use when we leave the house?

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Can you sleep when the wind blows?

Mr. Jones, the owner of a small farm on the coast, advertised for a hired hand. But people were hesitant about working on farms in the area out of fear of the terribly destructive storms that so often threatened buildings, crops and the lives of both people and animals. Consequently, the farmer found it almost impossible to hire anyone to help him with the work.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk: Living the dream through cupcakes and coffee

It's mid-morning on a sunny Saturday, after a satisfying brunch and visit to my local farmers' market. Dressed completely casually with nowhere to be, I stroll along East Main Street in downtown Statesboro to find an inviting sidewalk chalkboard and the doors open wide at CAKE Bakery and Cool Beanz Espresso Bar. Upon entering, I discover much more than cupcakes and caffeine. Here two kindred spirits - one culinary artist and one head coffee geek - have joined forces to make their dreams a reality.
