Bulloch History with Roger Allen

When Dwight D. Eisenhower became president of the United States, he knew exactly what he wanted to do: build an American version of the German Autobahn, which even the Allied armies were unable to put out of commission. He appointed two special committees to look into the many different facets of highway building. One, the Interagency Committee was composed of members of the Departments of Defense, Commerce and Treasury, along with officials from other agencies. The other was the Presidents Advisory Committee on National Highway Programs.

I hope everyone remembered to spring forward last night. If not, it's time to reset your clock and join the rest of us in Daylight Savings Time.

More on the travels of Bertie Mae Garrett. Just look over the list of places she has been. Among them was Lebanon, mentioned in the Old Testament and prized for the wood, "Cedars of Lebanon". Guatemala City, Guatemala, and London, England, all seemed mysterious to a small town boy. Dan Good has been to Guatemala, but not to Guatemala City. The language spoken there is Spanish. They have their own dialect.

Our community lost a great citizen this past week. Mr. Kemp Mabry left us on Thursday. From the somber atmosphere in the office, I know that he will really be missed around here. Editor Jim Healy shared a story on BlogSpace about his first meeting with Mabry. I wish I could have met him.

Fun with the family by Julie Lavender

The month of March may roar in like a lion or quietly whisper like a lamb. Whatever the weather, let the breezes stir your imagination and beckon you outside for fun with your family. Fly a kite, look for leprechauns and four-leaf-clovers, or soak up the sun – take in every beautiful day of March with those you love.

Gray-brown like south Georgia dirt, the hickory nut rolls around in the palm of my hand. It is cracked, but still whole. The little point at the end, what the botanists call a stigma, is worn down to a smooth nub.

Have you ever needed cash and you are due a tax refund? While you may welcome this refund with open arms, be patient. Investment companies make money by offering Refund Anticipation Loans (RALs) through many paid tax preparation services. An RAL is your tax refund, a few days earlier than if you wait for a check from the IRS, minus fees.

This week has really gone by quickly. But even as fast as this week sped by for me, I'm sure that it passed even faster for all the schoolchildren who had winter break this past week. Even Ole Man Winter relented on Thursday to allow for some sunny outdoor time.

For Young Readers

Recently, some of the most popular books among young readers have taken the form of historical fiction diaries. Series such as Dear America-which tells of different periods in our country's past through the eyes of various teens and preteens-have earned a special place on the shelves of both reluctant and avid readers. Now there comes a new line of similar novels: namely, the Lady Grace Mystery series, which is penned by various authors and published by Random House books.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen

In 1916, the United States Congress considered the state of America's roads, and found them severely lacking. They, therefore, proceeded to pass the Federal Aid Road Act, in which $75 million was allotted over a five-year period to be given to the states to create a system of paved roadways which connected their cities to each other, and eventually, to their neighboring states. In fact, officials of the Savannah Automobile Club (SAC) had already sponsored a fact-finding tour of the state's roads in the summer of 1914. Starting in Savannah, the group caravanned across state to Columbus.

The Internal Revenue Service will refund an estimated $10 billion in 2007 to telephone customers who paid federal tax on their long-distance service during the past three years. Federal courts ruled that the IRS was not justified in collecting this excise tax, collected by telephone service companies through customer bills. As of September 2006, the tax no longer appears on telephone bills.

Bertie Mae Garrett has done it again. Her "Chug Chug Lady from Georgia" was the first. This second much larger book (603 pages) is entitled "Gathering Jewels." Her niece, Carolyn Mandes, brought me this big book.
