Thinking of God

My friend Alan Smith relates a story that supposedly took place on an ocean liner sometime in the middle of the last century. Seated in one of the ship's dining rooms, comedic/dramatic actress Billie Burke (whose film credits involve some 88 titles from 1916 to 1960, including the 1937 "Topper" series) noticed another passenger who seemed to be suffering from severe head congestion. She asked him if he was feeling ill, to which he replied he was.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen

In the very earliest days of the colony of Georgia, people didn't have a national, or even a state currency, to use for the payments of debts and the purchase of goods. Only in the bigger cities were the coins of the realm (COR – also known as British Currency) used on a regular basis. Imagine, then, the suspicions with which early colonists viewed the first local paper money as something unnatural. Many times crops like rice, tobacco, sugar or corn were used in a barter system of trade.

This is Boy Scout Week. Feb. 8th is the anniversary of the founding of Scouting in America. William D. Boyce, an American businessman, was helped by a boy in the London fog. The boy refused a tip for helping, explained that he was a Boy Scout. The Scout motto is "do a good turn daily."

"You need to come to Indianapolis," the voice on the other end of the telephone announced with such assurance that it didn't occur to me to question it. Barry is a salesman, a car salesman, born to the breed. He is a hard person to contradict.

My Southern (Half) Century. My professional education began at Georgia Teachers College, affectionately called "TC." I had an engineering degree from Georgia Tech and an AB. degree in mathematics from Mercer University. But I needed to learn how to teach mathematics. I read every book on teaching mathematics in the old Rosenwald Library, where the GSU Museum is now located.

Bulloch History

On October 1, 1905, Statesboro resident L.F. Davis drove his new car from Savannah into Bulloch County. Unfortunately for him, some 10 miles out of Savannah, the auto began acting up, and before he knew it, it was dead. Stranded in Arcola, he ended getting a tow into town behind a mule, which was not at all the way he had expected to make his glorious entrance into the Boro with the very first of these new-fangled vehicles to make it that far west of Savannah.

"Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas!" These words should bring joy to each one, but they can ring a sour note if you happen to be the victim of identity theft! In the course of the holiday season you will write checks, charge to your credit cards, mail bills, call home on your cell phones, order new checks or maybe even apply for another credit card. Chances are you don't give these everyday transactions a second thought. But someone else may.
