For Young Readers by Lindsey and Paige Oliver

When asked to read a self-help book, the feelings of many teens and pre-teens can be summed up with a long, loud groan. It is a known fact that getting kids to read something they are not immediately "grabbed" by can be difficult - not to mention stressful for said child. However, a book called "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens" is worth more than just one look. Written by the son of Steven Covey, author of the widely popular "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People", the book acts as a roadmap for normal kids who like to have ...

Second, Agapanthus comes into bloom in late May and early June to provide some early summer interest to landscape beds. The flower head is umbel shaped, similar to that of the onion. The stem and flowers rise above the strap-like foliage to create a show-stopping appearance. Flowers last several weeks because all the flowers in the umber ...

Bulloch Genealogy by Roger Allen

Many in Bulloch County recognize that the Mathis' and Matthews' families were some of the first to settle in the area. Their first ancestor, as far as I have been able to ascertain, would be Robert Edward Mathis. He came from the small Welsh town of Mathias. Robert was born in 1640, and married Sarah Bishop.

Outdoor Living: Fourth of July brings memories of family conflict

This week always brings back some unpleasant memories. I know that Independence Day evokes thoughts of America's newly won freedom for most people but for me it is a reminder of a different war that was bitterly contested on American soil in the 1960's.
