• Ten parents or guardians have been arrested during the 2014-2015 school year for a count of failure to comply with mandatory school attendance.
    But one, a former substitute teacher in the school system, has taken her displeasure with her arrest to the national television media.
    Julie Scott Giles, 43, of Sylvania was arrested on May 14.
    Giles has been on the Fox Network’s Fox & Friends. She had her story published on People.com and other major news outlets have picked up her story.

Friday night Ron Duncan’s Screven County football Gamecocks return to Augusta and Westside High School’s football stadium The Battlefield for the first time since Oct. 18, 2013. On that night nearly two years ago, a seeming crime was committed in the name of football by our Roosters.
The crime you ask? Impersonating a football team I say.

Opinion

A special thanks to everyone who made the rededication of Maj. Charles Kelly Memorial Stadium such a great success!  
The success came about because of the dedication of the committee given the opportunity to honor Maj. Kelly on the 50th anniversary of his death, coupled with the outpouring of support from our community.
