Let's face it, for many working parents with children in school, fixing a nutritious breakfast is the last thing we have time for in the morning. In fact, we're lucky to get a bowl of sugary cereal in their stomachs before the bus arrives and, if they're teenagers, we're relieved to see them grab a Pop-Tart on their way out the door.

Special to the Effingham Herald
The Effingham County Board of Education is pleased to announce that Amanda Starling, a sophomore at South Effingham High School, has been selected to serve on State Superintendent Kathy Cox's Student Advisory Committee.
The principal, Daniel A. Noel, of South Effingham High School announced that Rebecca E. Callaway and Jeffery J. Hancock have been named Commended Students in the 2009 National Merit Scholarship program.
The Effingham Academy class of 1953, the first class to graduate from 12 grades, celebrated with a dinner at the Clyo Homemakers' Clubhouse on Sept. 20 at 5 p.m. Twenty-two people were in attendance. Ten of the original 20 classmates were present.
As long as the car had four wheels, a healthy stereo and could carry me from Point A to Point B, I was a satisfied teenager. I lived for that 7:57 a.m. arrival in my Ford. No matter what temperature, the air would carry my blaring tunes out my rolled down windows into the sleepy, high school parking lot. The high point of my day was over the moment I pulled into my spot, ran into class and began classes.
