DEAR ABBY: My husband and I are in our early 30s and we spend a lot of time with three other couples. A few months ago, we went on a picnic at a local park to play ball and have lunch. One man (I'll call him Bill) thought it was funny to pour what was left of a soft drink on one of the wives' head. She and her husband had to leave. It was obvious she couldn't stay with sticky hair and clothing. Bill called them "party-poopers."

Dear Dr. Mabry,
The oldest highway in Bulloch County is also one of the oldest roads in the Southeastern United States. Once known as part of the "Path to Pensacola," Burkhalter Road was a very important part of the "Path to the Indian Nations," which started at the Savannah River near Brier Creek near present day Oliver, Georgia. The Indians traveled this route on their way from their villages to the trading centers at Pensacola on the Gulf Coast. The Spanish explorers referred to this road as "Camio Reel", and later was referred to as the "King's Highway" by the English colonists.
