SYLVANIA - The Screven County Gamecocks (11-8, 7-4 Region 3-AA) had the opportunity to move into a second-place tie with region rival Metter (14-9, 9-2) with a home win Thursday night, but starting pitcher Josh Vining (4-2) - who recently signed to play college ball at Young Harris College - threw a complete game and struck out nine.

Ask Dr. Gott 4/20

DEAR DR. GOTT: Please warn women! I had one to two bladder infections a month during the years between 1996 and 2001. I was going to one of the most well-known urologists in my area.

Our Views: Reviewing campus emergency policies a good idea for GSU

The tragedy that struck Virginia Tech Monday was equally stunning in its scope and baffling in what could push someone to commit such a heinous act.
