Bulloch History with Roger Allen

Michael Gruber was born in Lehn Grube, Gastein. He married Magdalena Amoser in 1695, and had four children: Peter, Hans, Michael, and Thomas. Peter Gruber, born in 1697 in Taxenbach, Berchtesgaden, Austria, decided to flee his Salzburg homeland with some 21,500 of his fellow countrymen because of religious persecution. He had married to the Widow Maria Kraher (or Kroer) Mosshammer. In Augsburg they joined nearly 300 of these "Salzburgers" who had agreed to travel to the New World. The Society for the Promotion of Christian Knowledge arranged for them to sail from Rotterdam, the Netherlands, in 1734 for Dover ...

Nature in the raw

It's a place where a pair of red-shouldered hawks hunt for mice, a place where a rescued German Shepherd named Scout plays freely, a place where horses graze and wild rabbits scamper about.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen

Troops from Bulloch County arrived at Auckland, New Zealand on October 7, 1943 and after a stay of one month, they shipped out again, this time on the Dutch Island Steamer the Bosch Fontaine. They arrived at the island of New Caledonia, where they received orders to set up defensive positions around the island's air bases. They boarded a truck and headed up the mountain roads for their camps up in the foothills surrounding the capital, Noumea.

Thinking of God

American physicist and educator Charles Townes (1915 - ), co-winner of the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize for the development of the "maser" - acronym for "Microwave Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation," from which was developed the more commonly known "laser" - was asked if he had a sense of achievement in what he had accomplished. "Not really," he said, and told a story about a beaver and chipmunk viewing the enormous Hoover Dam for the first time. Caught off guard, they were overwhelmed. When the beaver recovered, he said boldly, "I didn't build it, but it is based on an idea of ...

The Saturday morning that I finally tackled the cleaning out of the attic, I found myself surrounded by a rug rolled into a long cigar, a doll cradle, Christmas tree stands of various sizes, a cooler and probably 25 cardboard boxes, some of them mislabeled. Wreaths hung from the rafters by ten-penny nails and insulation billowed up from the unfloored part of the attic like cotton candy.

Fun with the family by Julie Lavender

Are you one of the many folks who made a list of inspiring resolutions, only to have ditched the list already? Or, are you like me, and didn't bother with a list this year? Whether you have a tangible list or a mental list, add this resolution immediately: Spend more time with family. Make this year the best ever for family memory-making events.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen

On October 29, 1914, J. A. Brannen reported that there were more than 400 autos in all of Bulloch County. Not everybody was thrilled with these new contrivances: an editorial reported that "farmers found that the cost of keeping an automobile in repair and operation is more than the cost of keeping horses to perform the same tasks." By 1915, even more rules had been written: the speed in town was now 8 mph, and 15 mph elsewhere; and it was declared that there was to be no "promiscuous use of horns for noise making" by their drivers. Policemen were ...
