The Answer Doc with Dr. Christopher Munger, M.D.

As summer nears, I have been seeing more and more people out and about in sandals or walking barefoot in their yards. Most people look at bare feet and think of freedom or warm weather. I see people going barefoot and the first thing that comes to mind is diabetes.

The Society for Research in Child Development has released a report called "The Epidemic of Childhood Obesity: Review of Research and Implications for Public Policy." The goal of this report is to translate the research that has been done on childhood obesity so that policy makers and the concerned public can begin to do something about this health emergency.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen

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. In many cases, no one knows how these places got their names and how they were established where they were. Some town names actually made sense - once you heard the tale.

The Answer Doc with Dr. Christopher Munger, M.D.

Q: My seven-year-old daughter has just started wetting the bed at night. Last week she had an accident while at school. She hasn't wet the bed since she was 4. Is this something I should be really concerned about or is there possibly a simple explanation?

Bulloch History with Roger Allen

Preston Wise, son of William Wise, was born in the Barnwell district of South Carolina, but moved with his family to Bulloch County at a young age. He was married four times, including to Mary Ann Jones in 1808. Preston had fought in the War of 1812 for his country, so it was not at all that surprising that when the War Between the States began, at least three of his sons, Jacob, John Daniel and William Henry, signed up to fight, as did at least two of their grandchildren, Burrell and James William.

Your news, our news

We've had some interesting community conversation this week. We've discussed summer memories, country roads, fishing, abandoned puppies, moving the three-point line in basketball and Hillary for president. Tom, we're waiting to hear more about Hillary.

During pregnancy there are many things an expectant mother can do to ensure the best possible health for herself and her unborn child. Some of the more obvious things include getting plenty of fluids, taking prenatal vitamins and consuming healthful foods. When concentrating on selecting a healthy diet for herself and her baby, a pregnant woman should also concern herself with food safety. Food borne illness, an infection or intoxication caused by consumption of contaminated foods, is of particular concern to pregnant women. Specifically, a food borne illness called listeriosis, caused by the bacterium, Listeria monocytogenes.

The sky was a blue glass bottle pouring out the white light of the sun. It puddled in the grass of what was once the Wesleyan Botanical Garden and what has been for probably 75 years Washington Park. It was a perfect spring Saturday in Macon, like so many perfect spring Saturdays I'd spent there, anesthetized by youth and privilege and oblivious to the gifts of freedom and promise.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen

In 1894, the Reverend B. J. Bridges began the first of two Negro religious papers, The Evangelist. He then either replaced this paper with (or added another), The Advocate, in 1895. In 1894, the Reverend Scarborough started another paper, in Zoar this time, named The Zoar Banner, which he then soon renamed The Zoar Blade. In 1896, Reverend Harmon Hodges, with the financial support of Colonel Robert Lee Moore, started a Populist Party newspaper named The Silver Dollar.

One of the greatest lessons we can learn from the tragic shooting at Virginia Tech this week is that we are still not fully meeting the needs of the mentally ill-nationally or locally. Though much progress has been made, we still have work to do. Removing barriers that prevent people from seeking help for themselves or their loved ones is especially important.
