4 things your newborn wants you to know

Your newborn baby is cute, for sure, but it doesn't seem like there is much going on in there. The baby eats. The baby cries. The baby fills diapers. The baby sleeps. However, your baby is quite intelligent for one who is such a novice at life. If he or she could talk, this is what you might hear.

The Crock-Pot is 75 years old this month, and while you can use this nifty gadget to whip up some sticky wings for your Super Bowl party, cook oatmeal overnight for an instant breakfast or even make homemade organic ketchup (who knew?), the Crock-Pot has had mixed results delivering on one of its advertised benefits: freeing women from the time-consuming tedium of housework.

Are you hunting dove on a baited field?

Come this fall, this may be a question asked ahead of time by an invited hunter to the host of the field. This may be a question one hunter poses to another as they step onto a dove field for the first time. In the worst case scenario, this question may be asked by incredulous hunters who have just been informed by the game warden that, yes indeed, the field is baited.
Department of Natural Resources Ranger Brandon Pierce of Effingham County would like to avoid the last example and provide suggestions and strategies for successfully and legally attracting mourning ...

What are next steps for Afghanistan?

When President Barack Obama finished a review of his strategy in Afghanistan last fall he set what was widely construed to be a deadline for the U.S. to begin withdrawing. At the time, setting a July 2011 timetable was widely considered a mistake, allowing the Taliban to see light at the end of the tunnel.
Since then, Obama's commanders have been edging away from that deadline, including overall Afghan commander Gen. David Petraeus, who described it as "the date that a process begins that is conditions-based," and that depending on the conditions on the ground he reserves the ...

Lottery and the pre-k

The final lottery funded program is the voluntary Georgia pre-k program that accounts for $355 million or 31.5 percent of Lottery for Education expenditures in the fiscal year 2011 budget. The FY11 budget will fund 84,000 pre-k slots throughout the state.
The Georgia pre-k program operates as a public/private partnership. Pre-k classes are offered in traditional public schools as well as private schools and daycare providers. Because there is no capital outlay component in Lottery pre-k funding, only those systems with extra space have chosen to participate. Approximately 58 percent of all pre-k classes are currently offered ...

Breaking funding gridlock

A three year journey came to an end this year as the Georgia state legislature finally came up with a plan that will address our state's growing transportation needs.

ECSO issues scam warning

The Effingham County Sheriff's Office is warning residents about scam solicitations that promise monetary awards or rewards. Some of the latest versions of the mail fraud schemes ask the recipient to cash the included check and then ask the recipient to return a portion to the sender.
In some cases, scammers will send a realistic check or money order for a purchase they make from you - buying something you're selling - and then ask you to return the overage amount. The check or money order then bounces and you're out all the cash.

Springfield to work on alcohol hours ordinance

Springfield City Council members are expected to review an ordinance to extend hours of service for establishments serving alcohol.
City attorney Hillary Burns said she will have a new ordinance ready for council members to vote on at their Sept. 13 meeting.

The new ordinance, if adopted, would allow serving hours on Friday to be extended from midnight to 1 a.m. and on premises consumption hours to go from 1 a.m. to 2 a.m.

That's the day he says he was given a new life. Talking about it, the 54-year-old workingman, with his gruff voice, solid build and hardened hands, can't help but well up with tears. It's the day he received an unlikely liver transplant.
Gleaton had no symptoms when he was first diagnosed with liver cancer around Fathers Day 2009. His diabetes doctor noticed an abnormality in his blood work, and they found a malignant tumor in his liver the size of a golf ball. After a few ...

Effingham County commissioners are weighing a new slate of impact fees.
In April, commissioners approved a $60,100 contract with TischlerBise to prepare a capital improvements elements and impact fee analysis.
TischlerBise performed a similar study in 2005, and the county adopted a schedule of impact fees for water, sewer, roads, parks and public safety.
Any changes in the impact fee ordinance would come after a series of public hearings.
"The idea is to get comments from the public as well as the board of commissioners on the analysis," County Administrator David Crawley said.

Preacher’s kid lost in New York

As a boy, I was "double trouble" - a preacher's kid and an Army brat. My father was a chaplain in the U.S. Army.
When I was in the seventh grade, Dad was stationed at Fort Hamilton in Brooklyn, New York, in order to attend Chaplain's School. I attended Public School 104, which was in an Irish-Catholic neighborhood. It was a good school with strict discipline and excellent academics.
Soon after school started that fall, we learned that on Wednesday afternoons they had "release time." This was when students got out of school early and could go to ...
