When a violent crime occurs in Georgia, the public hears the story of the perpetrator in the local news.

County's best is yet to come

Happy New Year, Bryan County. The commissioners, county staff and I hope that you enjoyed your holidays … and the recent snow days as well. While it is a rarity to see snow and ice on the ground here in Coastal Georgia, last week's wintry weather served as a great reminder to us that it can (and does) happen, so it's best to be prepared. I commend our road crews and emergency services personnel for doing an excellent job pre-treating the roads and bridges as well as they could, and for reacting quickly and efficiently when accidents did occur.

If you ask a state legislator, particularly one who's been around for a few terms, what their priorities are for the upcoming session, they'll solemnly say something along the lines of, "Pass a balanced state budget."

A young girl and the Georgia Bulldogs

It was an undeniable blessing when I, a college kid and part-time sports writer, was given the assignment to cover a University of Georgia football game. What I didn't know at the time is that that one assignment would provide a springboard to bigger opportunities as well as giving me friendships that remain many years later.
