Tigers tame Screven

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. The senseless rampage that left 33 people dead and about two dozen more recovering from gunshot wounds will leave an emotional scar on the Virginia Tech community long after the physical wounds heal.

The importance of education

It's that time of the year when the school system, from elementary to university level, start the prayers, organize the planning, order the books and stand back for the onrush of hopefully eager and determined students who will learn everything possible in preparation for the day of days!
