‘It’s beautiful chaos’

Americans constantly hear the mantra reduce, re-use, recycle, and sometimes they may even practice it by tossing our soda can in the collection bin. But how many of them have ever looked at an old cabinet door or bicycle wheel and thought, "I can use that?"

Bulloch History with Roger Allen

The oldest highway in Bulloch County is also one of the oldest roads in the Southeastern United States. Once known as part of the "Path to Pensacola," Burkhalter Road was a very important part of the "Path to the Indian Nations," which started at the Savannah River near Brier Creek near present day Oliver, Georgia. The Indians traveled this route on their way from their villages to the trading centers at Pensacola on the Gulf Coast. The Spanish explorers referred to this road as "Camio Reel", and later was referred to as the "King's Highway" by the English colonists.

Hard work pays off for local musicians

The sounds of flutes, French horns and clarinets tangled with each other as students in the Statesboro High School wind ensemble practiced and prepared for a test.

For Young Readers

Censorship by religious authority, parallel universes, and the kidnapping of children for experiments are not familiar themes in children's literature. However, these topics and others like them become commonplace in the brilliant science fiction series by Philip Pullman. Dark yet humorous, action-packed yet intelligent, "The Golden Compass," the first book in the series, is a book for children, teens, and their parents alike.

Momofuku Ando has died. He was 96. A Japanese entrepreneur, he was the founder of Nissin Food Products. He invented the instant noodle. What we call ramen noodles. What my college buddy, Mona, called, for no discernible reason, flexy noodles.

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.

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 ...
