It is time again for our quarterly Recycle It! fairs. The quarterly Recycle It! Fairs are scheduled for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 12, at three locations: the Liberty County Health Department in Flemington, Walthourville City Hall and the Midway Police Department. Three locations means that it is easier than ever for you to drop off these types of recycling items.
For some reason, Southerners - more than people in any other region - love nicknames. It's really a show of affection when we care enough to bestow a nickname rather than call a person by his Christian name.

Prior to 1993, clerks of superior court in Georgia learned that members of the state's banking industry were working with state legislators to create a central filing system for UCCs because, throughout the state, banks were losing money because of the state's outmoded method for filing financing statements to secure property pledged as collateral for loans.
At June's grand opening of Lanier Technical College's new campus in Barrow County, Gov. Nathan Deal talked about one of the best educational opportunities available anywhere in the United States.
