Scare temporarily disrupts part of Georgia Southern University campus

Editor's note: This article has been revised to reflect the following correction, which will appear in Tuesday's print edition.

Because of a reporting error, a front-page article Saturday incorrectly said the student would not be charged. The Statesboro Herald regrets the error.

Kathy Bradley: Cemeteries, camellias and cold

It may have been the trees, soaring and spreading and stretching up into the sky and down into the earth. It may have been the words, carved into stone in letters thick and straight, their assertion of permanence both ironic and inspiring. It may have been the silence or the stillness or the statuary that captivated me, that made the cemetery at Christ Church on St. Simons one of my favorite places. I don't remember and I can't say that I ever knew for certain, but on that day the thing that grabbed me and held me was ...
