More funding, less testing for education

In a year that did not see massive reforms in education, the Legislature reacted to what members had been hearing in sessions all around the state: "Do something about testing, and a raise is overdue." A couple of pieces of legislation that addressed parents' and teachers' concerns over testing made some changes but did not completely reform the frequency nor content of school testing. Funding continued to reduce the austerity cut and focused on new technology for schools.

Remembering the Sunday School Convention in the 1880s

As we prepare for the 137th annual Sunday School Convention, we are thrilled to have uncovered some pictures never shared dating to the convention prior to the Effingham County Methodist Campground being located on its present site. The two-story structure in the background indicates it was during the days when convention was held in Springfield near the present Springfield United Methodist Church. These wonderful old photos were provided by Shirley Palmer from the collection of Harry Bird Zittrouer. Young Ramah Bird is believed to be 7 to 9 years of age dating the photographs to the late 1880s.

Living with children

Q: Whenever my 4-year-old son tries something new, he becomes very frustrated if he has any difficulty at all. This happens when practicing numbers, letters, or anything else I try to teach him. I tell him that he's doing fine and will do better with practice, but it's obviously not sinking in. In general, he's a perfectionist in the sense that everything must be "just so." It worries me because we have depression, anxiety, and OCD on both sides of the family.

A word from UGA Extension

We have a large amount of Bradford pears in the county, and many are concentrated to subdivisions. They create shade and look great in the spring with their white flowers. This year they may have more issues with a certain disease than in the past. This disease is Fire Blight and can also spread to fruiting pears, apples and crabapple.
