MY MOCK: The NFL Draft arrives & here’s how Round 1 will go

Two weeks.
Two extremely long and for all intense purposes useless weeks.
Well, tonight at 8 is the first round of the NFL Draft. For any of you who pay even the slightest bit of interest in the draft that reloads the professional football teams with a new arsenial of college players probably have noticed the first-round of selections is late this year. You would be correct. It’s 14 days later because a viable venue in New York City ala Radio City Music Hall could not be found to host the event at its normal time.
Don’t believe it? Me either.

Members of the high school’s FFA chapter got on the road this morning headed to middle Georgia as regional winners.

High school gets high marks

The Georgia Department of Education today released the second College and Career Ready Performance Index based on data from the 2012 and 2013 school years.
Screven County’s high school did well with the new scoring system. The elementary and middle schools were lower than the state averages for their respective grade levels.

Rep. Burns refutes he attacked newspaper editor with cane; calls showmanship contest 'rigged'

In movie fanfare, it is rare that flicks advance into a trilogy. Most are ones-and-dones.
While the cinema world is unaccustomed to seeing movies evolve into a trio, the reading nation is far less familiar in witnessing a back-to-back-to-back in column writing.
Well, here is my written version trend breaker.
Two weeks ago I provided you a glimpse via a column into my training mode as I was selected as one of the celebrities for the Screven County Livestock Festival Showmanship Showdown on the opening night of the livestock shows. It was an evening with pigs.

SCES principal Martin calling it a career this year

Becky Martin has become well-known not only locally, but also statewide for being the principal of a successful Screven County Elementary School.
However by the conclusion of this 2013-2014 school term, Martin will retire from her role as head of SCES.
Martin notified Superintendent William Bland of her decision at 10 a.m. Monday. At the regularly scheduled school board meeting seven hours later, the BOE accepted her retirement request. Martin will fulfill her position as principal through June 30.

‘Homegrown’ livestock parade Main Event April 5

Saturday marks the return of the annual Screven County Livestock Festival parade as 55 entrants will go down Main Street in Sylvania beginning at 11 a.m.
The theme this year is “Homegrown Since 1951.”
The event draws hundreds to the sides of the street as many groups and individuals wave and give out candy to onlookers along the parade route.
This year’s parade grand marshal is Olin Boyd.

NEW QUEEN: Abercrombie's 'Amazing' Night

For the first two years as a student at Screven County High School, Caitlin Abercrombie wanted to be a contestant in the Screven County Livestock Festival Pageant. However, while Abercrombie – like all of us – has multiple talents, none of those qualities translated into the on-stage talent she would need to compete in the annual kickoff event for the festival.
All of that changed March 29 for the high school junior.

This celebrity has a story of pig intrigue to tell

Last week in the illustrious publication, your Sylvania Telephone, I anointed myself “The Pig Whisperer” as I was decreed as a entrant in the first-ever Screven County Livestock Festival Celebrity Showmanship Competition.
I come to you in this edition to back up my claim. I was the Pig Whisperer Tuesday at the opening night of the livestock shows.
Whispering to that pig many a time, I said, “Please come on. Look I know you are tired, but you can go around this ring one more time, right?”

My evolution process to the Pig Whisperer

For months and months, our county’s youth have been readying themselves for the competition -- all along the way learning incredibly valuable lessons about life and who they are as a person.
The 63rd annual Screven County Livestock Festival is upon us. Our new queen was crowned Saturday night. This Saturday is the parade, Chicken-Q and Western Wear competition.
Then the youth will show their well-trained and fully fed animals April 8, 9 and 10 at the agricultural center on Rocky Ford Road.

Combining all the pieces

I have pecked away at this keyboard this proclamation previously and I still hold it to be self-evident. I admittedly am an NFL Drafnik.
With this decree of my own personal convictions out in the forefront, I pen this column to say that I will not be writing my highly anticipated first-round mock of the NFL Draft this year in April. Nope, it won’t happen. That’s because the annual extravaganza in New York City will be May this year. Thus, you will have to wait a few additional weeks for my selections.

Retired superintendent, current RESA director qualifies for BOE seat

It is a rarity that a local board qualifier who has no opposition receives so much attention for being on the election ballot, but this candidate is different.
While the qualifiers for the three county commission seats and the other two school board seats are incumbents, the qualifying of Whit Myers for the District 7 BOE seat already has coaxed discussions by those who have heard of his entrance since qualifying closed at noon March 7 for the May 20 primary and non-partisan election.

OTC Sylvania campus may offer core classes

Barring any unforeseen delays, Ogeechee Technical College will receive its regional accreditation in three months. With that official distinction by the Southern Association of Colleges & Schools, the core classes offered at OTC will be transferrable to a majority of other technical colleges and two-year and four-year colleges and universities.

Pack of dogs maul animals in SCMS barn

In a matter of mere days, what had become a safe haven for animals and on-campus learning center for students turned into a barn of death.
A trio of dogs running loose onto the Screven County Middle School grounds invaded the red structure that housed varieties of animals that were raised by the students. The canines attacked and killed animals, some destined to be exhibited in the annual Livestock Festival next month.

Alleged meth cook gets booked by law

An alleged methamphetamine cook with a history of drug-related charges was arrested March 6 as part of a joint operation by sheriff’s deputies from Screven and Effingham counties.
Screven County resident James Joyner, 37, was charged after investigators with the law enforcement agencies executed a search warrant at Joyner’s Old Poor Robin Road residence after a three-month investigation.
Remaining in the Screven County jail as of Wednesday, Joyner is charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, and possession of methamphetamine.

Local funeral home serves families with top-ranked dignity

The staff of the Thompson-Strickland-Waters Funeral Home really cares for the families who use their services.
While the funeral home has held a strong presence in the community, it now is documented that the Sylvania Singleton Avenue business ranks on top of the 746 rural and suburban funeral homes in its Main Street Division that stretches from Maine to Florida.

Rigdon signs to play football at Point

Wesley Rigdon did not have a traditional football season for the Screven County Gamecocks.
In reality, Rigdon’s season near even started.
During a 7-on-7 passing league contest, Ridgon tore his MCL and ACL, putting an end to the possibility of playing football for the Gamecocks after his family moved to Screven County from Texas.
While his brother Chandler was able to come from his own injury to play during the 2013 season, Wesley rehabbed and worked on his academics.
