Jailer charged with obscene Internet contact with a child

A Sylvania resident who is employed as an Effingham County corrections officer and is a certified umpire has been charged with felony obscene Internet contact with a child when he allegedly used social media to inappropriately converse with a teenager.

To me, Paul has all the right traits

Paul, at least to me, seemed to know everybody and everybody knew him.
Whether it was going to a restaurant; picking up groceries at the supermarket; or just taking trash off to the local dump, Paul would always run into a person he recognized. That individual could be one from Paul’s childhood; a past or present fellow coworker; or maybe a friend of a friend. No matter the circumstance, Paul was acquainted with many – and not just by face, but by name.

SPLOST funds enough Web-based Chromebooks for all middle schoolers

California Chrome has the chance to become the first horse to win the Triple Crown in 36 years Saturday at Belmont Park.
Whether that fleet-hoofed equine happens to champion over the other quality thoroughbreds remains to be seen. However, local school officials envision the purchase of a different version of Chrome may help champion Screven County students to a higher level of learning.

Getting more educated on those in charge

While the summer may be somewhat laid back for students, a lot of shifting and moving is happening in administrative positions in the Screven County School District as it readies for the 2014-2015 term.
The retirement announcement of Becky Martin as principal of Screven County Elementary created a vacant spot. When Brett Warren was tapped to switch from being the high school principal to handling the responsibilities of the elementary school principalship, that opened up a new vacancy at SCHS.

SCES RETIREMENT: Mrs. Martin is departing

Each year Becky Martin along with each of the elementary school teachers have honored the educators who are moving on to another school district or retiring from teaching.
This year  at the luncheon teachers Allie Scott and Lizzie Parker got to join Martin herself May 30.
Martin told the gathering of Screven County Elementary staff and others from the school system in the school’s front lobby they have to continue to think big.
“We have a lot of students here,” Martin said.

More advice for our graduates and this advice is crucial for all

Nolan Ryan, who recorded 5,714 strikeouts in his 20-year Major League Baseball career, was asked how hard it was for him to pitch seven no-hitters.
His response: “I also have 12 one-hitters, so I know what disappointment is. I’ve taken no-hitters into the ninth and lost them. Until you get all 27 outs, you haven’t accomplished anything.”
As I read Ryan’s comment over the Memorial Day weekend, I immediately saw how the statement could be representative of much more than only baseball. It certainly can be conveyed for life.

Wooten has perfect 'appearance'

It sometimes is not easy making it through a month of schooling without picking up a sickness bug from a classmate.
It is even more impressive if a student can get through a full year of school without missing a day.
But what about a student who has achieved perfect attendance for 14 consecutive years, dating back to pre-k?
Now that truly is amazing.

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.

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.

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.
