Bulloch County has been around now for more than 200 years. Many of the very first communities founded have since disappeared. Some were moved elsewhere and some just faded away.

Despite the common notion that America remains plagued by a divorce epidemic, the national per capita divorce rate has declined steadily since its peak in 1981 and is now at its lowest level since 1970.

Is it possible that the person has celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, for which simple dietary changes might make all the difference in health ...

ATLANTA - The Braves added a needed veteran for their rotation Monday when they agreed to a $4 million, one-year contract with right-hander Gavin Floyd.
