Bulloch History with Roger Allen

Bulloch County has been around now for more than 200 years. Many of the very first communities founded have since disappeared. Some were moved elsewhere and some just faded away. In many cases, no one knows how these places got their names and how they were established where they were. Some town names actually made sense - once you heard the tale.

Ask Dr. Gott

DEAR DR. GOTT: I am writing in response to a letter concerning a person with stomach and bowel problems. Medical testing provided no clues as to the illness, and medications only made the person ill.
