Bulloch History by Roger Allen

On December 6, 1946, the United States Post Office held a most unusual event. In a meeting of old and new methods of delivery, the U.S. Mail was brought into Statesboro from Savannah by none other than Colonel Albert M. Deal, a Bulloch County legend in his own right. Riding upon a horse, he left at 8 a.m., accompanied by a Bulloch Countian escort of Fred T. Lanier, Thomas C. Smith, George Dean, Georgia Marsh, L.A. Waters, W.O. Denmark, W.W. Mann, Lannie Simmons, and Dr. A.L. Clifton.

Simpson, Bowles: Barrow is 'brave'

Our nation needs to get its fiscal house in order, and to do so citizens must fully demand leaders who are willing to put partisan differences aside and come together to present the American people with honest solutions and consensus proposals that put the national interest ahead of special interests. That is why we were so disheartened to learn that John Barrow is being criticized for his support of a budget based on the plan recommended in 2010 by a bipartisan majority of the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform which we co-chaired (Simpson-Bowles Commission).
