What’s the story behind Dorchester Academy on Highway 84? How do people out on Colonels Island spend their time?
What do the sheriffs of Liberty and Long counties have in common? How can someone get married in Liberty County?
Our quarterly lifestyle publication, Liberty Life magazine, explores each of these questions and more as its third anniversary issue is released today.
The magazine is delivered free to Courier subscribers and is for sale at our 125 S. Main St. office. It will be available soon at Uncommon Grounds and The Hinesville Pharmacy.
Another popular feature receives a new twist with the Top 10 Shining Seniors, a list of standout high-school students in area schools.
Liberty Life will recognize the Top 10 Shining Seniors this week in conjunction with a Liberty County Chamber of Commerce event.
After two years of recognizing the Top 10 Under 40, we decided to explore an ever younger pool of emerging leaders — those in the class of 2013.
We solicited nominations directly from schools, and students presented by Bradwell Institute, Liberty County High School and First Presbyterian Christian Academy each showed us that the future is bright.
In addition to in-depth features on area locations, we also offer a foodie’s look at the Old School Diner in McIntosh County, where Chef Jerome serves with soul.
Columnist Debra Ayers Brown shares sweet reflections on finding a companion who teachers her to live in the moment, while United Ministerial Alliance of Liberty County President Pastor Richard D. Hayes shares some of his insight.
As the editor’s letter says, “We hope our publication provides you with insight into people and places with whom you weren’t quite familiar or would like to revisit, and we wish you a safe and exhilarating season in bloom.”
Courier writer Danielle Hipps also serves as managing editor of Liberty Life.
