Column — Bulloch History

In the 1880's, railroad magnate John Williams consolidated a number of small coastal North Carolina railroad lines into the Seaboard Railroad (SB). The SB then bought the Savannah, Americus, and Montgomery Railway (SA&M). The SB purchase of the SA&M gave the SB a route into Savannah, essentially breaking the stranglehold of the Central Of Georgia Railroad (CGA) railroad on Savannah traffic.

Column — Diane Miller

Regulating the temperature of your foods is a critical step in controlling the growth of harmful bacteria. Most people know that foods need to be cooked to proper temperatures in order to be safe, but the ability of your refrigerator, freezer or oven to maintain the proper temperature is often overlooked. Refrigerators and freezers need to be cold enough to prevent rapid bacterial growth on foods and ovens need to reach high enough temperatures to destroy any harmful bacteria that may be present on a food.

Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: The letter you printed on Aug. 30 from that nurse who wants to change careers after only one year could have been written by me. I became a nurse in 2000. While I loved the intellectual stimulation and fulfillment of being a skilled and compassionate nurse, dealing with the "other nurses and the environment" was an entirely different matter.

Ask Dr. Gott

DEAR DR. GOTT: My sisters, brother and I have been caring for our 89-year-old mother for the past 15 years as she has slowly declined with dementia. The doctor has diagnosed her as having Alzheimer's disease. In January of 2005 our mother's condition worsened enough to warrant help from Hospice. We were told that Hospice helps care for patients for their last six months or so of life to keep them comfortable during the dying process. My sisters and I have been taking turns with our mother, staying at each home for three to six months at a ...

African diaspora gives back from afar

The idea came to TMS Ruge one evening in September while at home in New York, skimming Twitter for stories on Ebola. A native of Uganda who grew up in East Africa and the U.S., Ruge was struck that much of the coverage depicted Africans only as victims.

Avoid the approaching 'Holiday Overwhelm'

In the human version of "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," Jim Carrey as the Grinch shares these symbolic stresses in his busy holiday schedule: "Even if I wanted to go, my schedule wouldn't allow it. Four o'clock, wallow in self-pity; 4:30, stare into the abyss; 5:00, solve world hunger, tell no one. 5:30, Jazzercize. 6:30, dinner with me. I can't cancel that again. 7:00, wrestle with my self-loathing; I'm booked. Of course, if I bump the loathing to 9 I could still be done in time to lay in bed, stare ...
