Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Treaty pushes Creeks out of Georgia

In 1770, Augusta-based Creek Indian traders informed the Royal Governor of Georgia's staff that the Creek Indian "Head Men" were anxious to settle their outstanding debts that had accrued since 1761 by giving up a large portion of their tribal hunting grounds.

John Bressler - The wonders of the Henderson Library never cease

It's early in the semester and I am standing on the wrong side of a very large glass partition separating the Henderson Library foyer, lobby, entrance - or "the way in," as we locals like to say - from the first floor. On the other side is a plethora - or pot-full - of students trying to get to my assigned class room. I am now writing on the glass with a large erasable marker, "Come to the second floor, take the far elevator or the stairs, come back down to the first floor and follow me to room 1300." This is a ...

Tommy Palmer's Sports Comment - UGA basketball rebounds

Coach Mark Fox was hired to be the new Basketball Coach at The University of Georgia almost two years ago, and most Georgia boosters at the hiring said, "Mark Who?" Now, most of the state's basketball fans can tell you who Fox is, and that the up-and-coming Bulldog basketball team is making giant strides in a short period of time.

Tommy Palmer's Sports Comment - Verbal commitments are just that!

I find it quite interesting that every College football fan in the nation gets all fired up about verbal commitments from High School football players. After all, over the past few years I have seen many prepsters change their minds on signing day, much to the dismay of old Home State University.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - East Georgia ER? Yep, there's an 'app' for that

If you love technology, particularly cell phone technology, then you already know that phone 'apps,' as they are commonly referred to, are one of the tsunamis in technology development.

Kathy Bradley - Winter, like everything, has its moments

Ice hung off the eaves of the carport like jagged dragon teeth in a preschooler's drawing of scary. Stiff and unresponsive to the wind that came rushing across the field and crying like a banshee, the ice-covered limbs of the sycamore tree could have been the dragon's claws, sharp and pointed and crooked at awkward angles. Standing in the doorway, huddled inside my overcoat, I would have welcomed a quick puff of the dragon's fire breath - just enough to break the chill until I could get into the car.

John Bressler - Isn't it great to be Scottish?

Last week, members and guests of the Scottish Heritage Society of Southeast Georgia held their annual Robert Burns Supper and heard bagpipes, ate haggis, toasted lads and lassies and were knocked off their chairs by speaker Sonny Dixon, WTOC anchor, international prize winner for broadcasting excellence and one fine Scots-Irish descendant. While I can't remember all of his great jokes, I could at least remember a few he might have told. "Hey! I just met a piper with a wooden leg named Smith." "Really! What did he call his other leg?"

My Take with Matt Yogus - More to Eagle basketball than wins and losses

Charlton Young and the Georgia Southern Eagles have had a tough go of things - and that's a massive understatement.

I'm sure this isn't a surprise to very many of you, but there is an immense interest as to when the Cracker Barrel restaurant is going to open and how to get a job there.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Tackle problems when the iron is cold

Q: Our 4-year-old daughter has a huge problem with being laughed at. She loves to be goofy and do funny things, but as soon as someone, including one of us, laughs at her, she becomes upset. She will say "Don't laugh!" or "I don't want you to laugh at me!" We explain that we aren't laughing at her but at the funny things she does. We've also told her that we laugh because we are happy and having a good time with her. Is there a different way to explain this to her so that she ...

Kathy Bradley - A parade and a pyramid

Jackson is almost 4 - that age at which he understands his separateness from other people but does not yet understand the separateness of his emotions. His will is clear and distinct, but his heart is still one with the world. Whatever is happening to him, be it highest joy or deepest sorrow, is happening to the world. That thing - the filter, the wall, the individuation of identity that will eventually teach him that this is not so, that his feelings are uniquely his and that not everyone can be trusted with them - has yet to take hold.

A memorable spring break

Last week, while most students were vacationing in such exotic faraway places like Panama Beach, Daytona Beach or Hopeulikeit, Julie and I had the wonderful opportunity to run down to Sarasota, Florida, to see our daughter and family and our middle son, George, from California. For those of you who don't know the scenario, from the day after Thanksgiving to the day after Easter, Florida fills up like a test tube full of Snowbirds who eat everything in sight, drive like maniacs and play very bad golf.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Fear is not always a bad thing

I recently came across a 1951 article my late mother saved from the Charleston (S.C.) News and Courier. Titled "Agency Offers Pointers on How Parents Can Guide Their Child's Emotional Development," it is proof that parents and professionals of three generations ago possessed a wealth of common sense, a quality that has since become most uncommon.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - Celebrate spring with strawberries

Happy spring! We have survived the long, cold, dark, snowy and rainy days of winter, and I couldn't be happier to lay the power outages to rest and welcome the sunshine, watch the azaleas reveal their colors and see the earth bloom back to life. I've always loved this season, and I may be a little biased. My birthday is in April, the Masters golf tournament returns to my hometown of Augusta, Ga., and my family and I keep I-95 South hot with trips to my favorite vacation destination: St. Simons Island in the beautiful Golden Isles of ...
