Savannah Tree Foundation Plans Planting for Pooler By Stephen Prudhomme The Savannah Tree Foundation is branching out to the Westside and bringing plenty of “shady friends.” On Saturday, Nov. 15th, from 9 a.m. to noon, the group will plant 200 “canopy” trees at the new Pooler Recreation complex off the Pooler Parkway. The foundation is seeking some 100 volunteers to help with the planting and will provide drinks, snacks, T-shirts and tools; volunteers with hardtined rakes, shovels and work gloves are encouraged to bring these items along. Community service hours are available upon request. Partners for the tree planting include title sponsor Melaver, Inc., the City of Pooler, Georgia

Power, Forklifts & Bobcat of Savannah and Vermeer Southeast. According to communications director Adrienn Mendonca, the tree planting is the second one the organization has done in Pooler and is a response to the “tree canopy” loss brought on by area development. Much of Savannah’s natural beauty revolves around its majestic trees and in particular the live oak. One of the most splendid live oak specimens is located next to Forsyth Park, and it owes its continued longevity to the Savannah Tree Foundation. In the early ‘80s, the Candler Oak, which nearly dates back to the arrival of Gen. James Oglethorpe and the establishment of the Georgia colony in 1733, was in “serious decline” and had a life expectancy of less

than 20 years. The Savannah Tree Foundation, started by Page Hungerpiller, Suzanne Williams and Lynda Beam, made the Candler Oak its first preservation project, in 1982. In an unprecedented move, the group obtained a conservation easement on a single tree. The result, in 1984, was a 6,804-squarefoot easement that protected the Candler Oak from loss to development. The following year, asphalt was removed from the root area and a schedule of regular maintenance, to include watering, mulching, weeding and

Facing Change Together By Thomas B. Lockamy, Jr. Ed.D. Instant is not one of my favorite words. Instant breakfast, instant potatoes, instant kharma, instant gratification, instant grits and instant fixes all fall into the same category; good intentions typically resulting in poor results. The reality is - there are no instant fixes in education. Over the past four years, with the support of our broader community, we have moved collaboratively in the right direction. We have introduced a number of key ingredients to the mix: differentiated instruction, specialized data teams, assessment teams,

E-SPLOST, school construction, PTA, community engagement, improved bus service, more rigorous curriculum, high expectations, school uniforms, and the list goes on and on. Creating a world class educational system takes time, patience, and experience using just the right mixture of ingredients and synergies. Now we approach yet another challenge that we must consider together with thoughtful deliberation and careful regard for families, communities and most importantly, our students. The next challenge before us is redistricting our schools into fully energized yet harmonious

learning communities. Before we begin there must be unilateral agreement; redistricting is not an instant fix. It is not a magic bullet. It is simply the next step on our journey to World Class. It is a necessity, albeit challenging, but it is an absolute necessity. Local school attendance zones have not been redrawn in several years. In the meantime our population has migrated. For example, I am reminded of the prevalent joke in the 70’s and 80’s about the possibility of Wilmington Island sinking due to over growth. While Chatham County has not witnessed exceptional growth in the last ten years, we

POLICE REPORTS Port Wentworth

• Around 2:30am, an Officer was northbound on Hwy 21 near Hendley Road behind an Acura with Maryland plates. The driver was crossing over the fog line and centerline several times. The Officer made a traffic stop, and the woman pulled into the Wendy’s parking lot. He asked the woman for her license, and she replied “They took my license!” “Who’s is they?” the Officer asked. “They’s the Richmond Hill Police Department,” she answered. The Officer noticed the orange wrist band on her left wrist, and asked if the woman had been drinking. “I’m not gonna lie to you... I had a drink tonight.” She was soon on her way to jail for DUI and driving while suspended. • Around 5pm, an Officer made a traffic stopon a Beaufort couple after clocking them at 62mph in a 45mph zone of Hwy 21. As he approached the car, he noticed the odor of burnt marijuana. He asked them about it, and the woman said “We just got done burning one before we got off the interstate.” The Officer asked if they had any more in the car, and she said yes. She then told her boyfriend to hand over his pot. The man lifted his sock and pulled out a baggie with two marijuana cigarettes inside. The Officer asked if there was any more in the car, and both said there wasn’t. The Officer then explained he was going to search the car, and the woman’s memory suddenly got better and she remembered she had a marijuana cigarette inside her sock as well. She turned that over. The Officer then had the car towed and the couple were on their way to jail. • Speaking of scumbags that need the crap beaten out of them... an elderly woman told Officers that she’d hired a man to pressure wash her home. She said he’d given her a price of $40, but when he was finished, he demanded $800 from her, saying the price was $40 per gallon. The woman went back to her bedroom and had her husband retrieve the money from a fire box. The scumbag had followed her down the hall, and stole her fire box and her husband’s wallet containing $160.

No one can deny the exceptional expansion and growth in West Chatham County. In addition, other communities have sprouted in various corners of our county while older, more established communities have waned and in some cases been replaced with all new communities. Where neighborhoods once housed families with children, some communities have matured with the younger families residing in other parts of our county. The former children have grown, graduated and moved on to another community to raise their own children and thus, the cycle continues. Moreover, the high cost of transportation and fuel cannot be dismissed. As good stewards, we must summon the will and

courage to redistrict our schools more closely aligned within their own neighborhoods allthe-while ensuring an equitable allocation of resources. Still, knowing and understanding the logic and reasoning behind the process does not minimize the collision of emotion and logic. If we are to be successful in our journey to World Class, together we must face redistricting with frankness, with our eyes clearly focused on the goal of creating greater communities within our schools, supporting our schools, and infusing our schools with the energies necessary to produce an educational outcome second to none. Instant redistricting is foolhardy. Instant redistricting is often accomplished in a closed room with only a map and population grids without regard for the broader scope and relationship between communities. Instant redistricting is an instant recipe for failure. On the other hand, successful redistricting is a process, not an instant fix, encouraging input from the total community. Successful redistricting is formulated in the light of day as a public process with credibility and community ownership; it

Regardless, once the smoke clears and attendance zones are drawn, three elements will remain that deserve measured yet deliberate consideration – the important issues, heightened emotions and relevant questions. My father taught me three very valuable lessons to live by; learn from your mistakes, listen to your complaints and always keep your promises. In my four year tenure I have endeavored to be responsive to all three. As we move forward with the redistricting process, transparency will be our mode of operation. We will listen, learn, and where mistakes are evident; they will be corrected. Most importantly, we will keep our promise to maintain our focus on the larger goal, excellence in education. This is your school system, your schools and I am responsible as your steward of trust. As this process begins and moves forward, our entire school system emphatically elicits your opinions, input and support. All Means All!

The man was taken into custody and charged with possession of controlled substances with intent to distribute. • Officers responded to a fast food restaurant parking lot for a traffic accident.

CITY COUNCIL REPORTS Rincon

The bi-monthly meeting of the Rincon Council met Monday evening. Mr. Don King presented the Audit for the year 2007. Council approved Mr. Neal Corbin’s requests to close the lane between First Baptist Church and 205 East Sixth Street. This lane will be divided between the Baptist Church and Mr. Corbin, and after the property is legally divided each side will get 50% of the lane and share in its maintenance. Council gave approval to purchase 24 grinder pumps for inventory at a cost of $750 each, a total of $18,000. These pumps are being replaced two to three a month and the existing inventory now is six pumps. Also, payment of $3,100 was approved to the state of Georgia, Department of Natural Resources for water sample fees for a contract period July1, 2008 to July 30, 2009. These samples are taken twice monthly and sent to the state for testing. Council then gave approval of payment to Layne Christensen Company for emergency repairs to well # 4 at Silverwood in the amount of $16,744. These repairs were due to the failure of four of the six stages of pumps. Approval was given to the bid from the Roland Fence Company for the playground fence

• Around 1:30am, Deputies responded to a Guyton business where an alarm was going off inside the building. They found a broken window on the side of the building, and the owner was called to the business. He found the cash drawer open, and told Deputies he was missing $200 in a variety of bills. He also noticed he was missing a 24 ounce Pepsi and a 24 ounce Mountain Dew from the cooler, and gave the Deputies the code numbers from the bottles. About ten minutes later, another Deputy was in the area and noticed a man walking down the street near the business that had been burglarized. The man had no money on him, but did have a 24 ounce Pepsi and a 24 ounce Mountain Dew. The Deputy tried to pat the man down for his safety, but the man resisted and struggled with the Deputy. He was advised that he was going to be taken to jail, and the man became more combative. (Here’s my favorite part...) The Deputy tased him and he was _____________________________________ Continued on Page A6

and netting at the fields located at Macomber Park. The bid was for $19,700 minus the tax which was included in the bid. Approval was given for an increase in registration fees for all sports and participant. The increase in fees was to offset the money that the city spends for uniforms, etc. The second reading of the noise ordinance was approved and the adoption of the City Council‘s General Policies was tabled for the next workshop. Bid recommendations for the Fort Howard Road Project was awarded to Y-Delta Company for the drainage problems and construction of a turn lane. But this award will be after an engineering report is available. About 25 citizens were present for the approval of a petition filed by Manna House requesting a variance of 33 parking spaces at 1210 Patriot

Park Drive. They wish to reduce these parking spaces by 25 so that a storage building may be erected in that space available. Council granted the variance. A petition has been filed by Mary Harrell requesting a variance to locate a mobile home at 113 Atlantic Ave. The property is zoned R-4 Residential. The size of the lot is approximately two acres and Ms. Harrell was told that there could not be two residences on one lot and that the lot had to be divided and this division would offer a new address. Ms. Harrell was asked if she wanted to withdraw her petition until the division has occurred and the mobile home has met the building codes. At this point the council went into executive session and the meeting was adjourned. The next council meeting will be on November 24,2008 and the public is invited to attend.

POLICE REPORTS finally arrested for disorderly conduct, obstruction, and public intoxication. The soft drinks were taken for evidence and turned over to detectives. • A Deputy was running radar on Midland Road at Blue Jay Road, and clocked a gray Dodge Dakota pickup at 66mph in the 35mph zone. He couldn’t help noticing the pit bull in the bed of the truck. While speaking with the driver, he noticed the odor of alcohol and asked the man if he’d had anything to drink that night. The man said he had two while he was at the hunting club. The Deputy then found an open beer in the truck, and the man was under arrest for DUI, speeding, and open container. He was allowed to call a friend to come get his truck and his dog. • A woman called Deputies about a neighbor who’s been seeing her 17 year old daughter even after she told him to stay away from her. She also accused the man of doing drugs with her daughter. Deputies went and spoke with the man, and of course, he lied and said he hadn’t done anything with the girl. He finally admitted he’d done drugs with her and other teenagers in the neighborhood in he past. He was advised not to have any further contact with anyone at the girl’s residence, and was then arrested for obstruction for lying to the Deputies at the beginning. • Deputies were contacted by a woman who was shocked to learn that her daughters were receiving obscene pictures on their computers through their MySpace accounts. The information has been turned over to a detective, and hopefully we’ll soon be reporting that a naked man has been arrested. We’ll print his mug shot so everyone can know who the dirtbag is. (And welcome to the 21st Century Mom. Kudos for taking the time to check your daughters’ computers to see what they’ve been looking at! More parents need to spend some time and do that!) • Around 1:30am, Deputies were alerted to a report of possible night hunting on Old Dixie Highway. A Deputy spotted the white Nissan Titan turning off Hwy 21 onto Hwy 21 Spur. He made a traffic stop and asked the driver if there were any weapons in the truck. The man said there were. The Deputy had both men step to the rear of the truck. Once backup arrived, the Deputy searched the cab of the pickup and found a hand gun in the driver’s side door pocket, and a rifle in the back seat. On top of the rifle was a spotlight and a mag-type flashlight. The Deputy then called a DNR agent to the scene. While waiting on him to arrive, one of the men admitted they’d shined the light on a deer in a field and took a shot. He assumed they missed because they couldn’t find the deer after that. The men were turned over to the DNR agent for further investigatin. (Great! So now I’m gonna have to go to the DNR office and get Incident _____________________________________ Continued on Page A8

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Regarding The Cancer Memorial Service....

Dear Editor, Thanks very much to Effingham County for your support and attendance of the Annual Community American Cancer Society Memorial Service held on November 2, 2008. It was a service of remembrance for 11 citizens from our area. Thanks to all who helped make the service successful. We appreciate the participation of Rev. Larry Bird of Rincon United Methodist with his words of comfort and support. Connie Burns, our American Cancer Community Ambassador, inspired us with her talk. Special thanks to Margie Sullivan and Sandra White who volunteered and conducted the service. We are grateful to the Effingham County Board of Education and Supt. Randy Shearouse for the use of the auditorium and his staff’s assistance. Special thanks to Joann’s Florist of Springfield for donating roses in paper for each of the families and decorations for our stage area. We thank this paper for your coverage of the event in this publication. Thanks to all in our community for your support of the American Cancer Society. Hopefully one day with more research, education, early detection and treatment, these services will no longer be necessary. Please support our yearly fundraiser Relay for Life next spring. Sincerely, Susan Exley American Cancer Society Effingham County Memorial Chairperson

Regarding An Offensive Apology....

Dear Editor, I’m offended because you apologized to someone who was offended by the joke concerning Barack Obama. Do I get an apology also?? I may be offended from time to time by something in your paper (which, by the way, I think is great) but do I demand an apology?? Of course not, but then I’m not an Obama supporter. I would have told this person to “get a life.” I’m of English heritage and am offended every time someone refers to me as a “guy”; (Look up Guy Fawkes and you’ll know why that is offensive to me) but do I demand an apology--of course not!! I would have to spend most

of my waking hours demanding apologies. Would he(or she) be offended about a joke concerning Senator McCain or Governor Palin? -Yeah, right!!! As I said -- your paper is great.

had I noticed it again. Thanks for taking the time to email us with your letter.)

Fred Pye Rincon

Dear Editor, The Matthew Reardon Center would like to thank everyone who helped make our annual yard sale a great success! The ongoing support for The Center and it’s programs is always appreciated. A special thanks to Spirit Newspapers, Mr. Louie Winskie, Don’s BBQ, Coca Cola, All American Glass, R & R Electric, John Reid & Morris Boxxe and other friends, relatives and supporters.

(Editor: Thanks Mr. Pye. Again, I’d already decided to apologize, mainly because of the joke’s reference to convenience store clerks, many of whom are kind enough to let us distribute our papers in their stores and are very good to us. I consider them friends of mine. As I tried or intended to explain in my column, I got such a kick out of the punch line that I dropped the joke in early in the week, then didn’t review it before sending it on to my typesetter to go into the paper. I think I’d have reworded it or left it out altogether

The 3rd Annual Healing Field By Robert Palmer

The R.O.C.K. Group (Raising Our Children Kindly) is hosting the Third Annual Healing Field Flag Memorial at the Georgia National Guard Headquarters on Eisenhower Drive until Sunday, November 16th. On display are 1,618 full sized American flags representing each child that was reported abused or neglected in Chatham County in 2007. Each flag has a blue ribbon attached with the name and age of the child that was abused or neglected. All these stars and stripes have been posted on three acres of grassy fields in front of the Armory. There are “Dear Hero” banners which provide children who visit the site the opportunity to draw or write on which will be sent to our active duty troops overseas. The entire display is for sale and individuals may sponsor an eight foot American flag in honor or memory of any loved

The clerk there explained that a logging truck driver had come into the store and placed several pieces of Jolly Rancher candies on the counter. He asked how much, and the clerk said they were a dime each. The man became upset, claiming he could buy them at other stores for a penny apiece. (Yeah, ...in 1970!) The man put

POLICE REPORTS Deputy spoke with a man and who I assume is his girlfriend, though it could have been a sister. or mother, or no relation at all. That part’s not important. What’s important is the man’s grandmother was causing problems for him and her. She got upset about a money issue, and the woman held up her debit card. Granny then grabbed a knife, but the man grabbed her and got the knife away from her. Then, Granny grabbed an ice pick and began poking ole boy in the back. (And they wonder why people laugh when Granny gets run over by a reindeer every Christmas Eve!) • A Guyton man filed a fraud report, telling Deputies he’d been hired as a “Secret Shopper” by a Bismark, North Dakota company. They sent him a $5000 check and told him to go spend it on certain items at WalMart. He did, and shipped the merchandise to them. Soon after, he found out the check he’d deposited had been returned for insufficient funds, and he’s now on the hook for $4000 to the bank. (Here’s the secret... it’s a scam!) • Deputies responded to a Springfield area on Mount Hope Road where callers alerted them to some guys possibly doing some night hunting. The scary

part was that they were firing high power rifles towards the Atlanta Gas natural gas lines in the power line easement. (“What we’ve got here is a case of too much ammo, not enough kablammo!”)

Garden City

• Shortly after midnight, an Officer was northbound on Hwy 21 near Brampton Road, when he noticd the green Explorer in front of him kept crossing over the centerline. This continued on past Groves High School all the way to Mercer Middle School where the Officer finally made a traffic stop. The driver handed over a Mexican driver’s license and said he didn’t speak English. He must have been shocked when the Officer told him in Spanish to step out of the Explorer. The man was very unsteady on his feet, and was soon on his way to jail for DUI and no driver’s license. • At 8pm, Officers were running radar on Hwy 21 at Smith Avenue and clocked a black Grand Prix at 63mph in the 45mph zone. the driver pulled over in Beaver’s parking lot, and the Officer quickly recognized the odor of burnt marijuana coming from the Pontiac. The two men were removed from the car and pat searched for weapons. The Officers found a baggie of marijuana in the sock of one man, and a metal pill bottle of cocaine in the sock of the other _____________________________________ Continued on Page A15

one. They were taken to jail. • Next, the same Officers clocked a woman at 59mph in the same area, and stopped her. As they approached the woman, she was on the phone telling somebody to go ahead and come pick her up. She was asked for her license, and told them she had it at her house. He tried running her information through dispatch, but nothing ever showed up under her name and date of birth. The woman’s mother then arrived, and said she would go home and retrieve her license for her. When she returned, she said she couldn’t find it, and the young woman was arrested for driving while unlicensed. The Officer then asked Mom if she had someone that could come get the car so it wouldn’t have to be towed. Mom replied “Ya’ll ain’t towing my car with me here!”They explained that they couldn’t just leave the car unattended on the side of the road, and since she was already driving a car, her daughter’s car would have to be towed. As the Officers began to inventory her car before it could be towed, Mom was on the phone with someone asking if they could “search her car if she didn’t give them permission?” The Officer then advised her she could take the car if she parked her other one close by in a parking lot. He took the daughter to jail, where he learned that she’d been deliberately misspelling her name to him to hide the fact that she has nine seperate suspensions of her license. • An Officer stopped a westbound Kia on Hwy 80 around 2:30am after observing the car swaying from side to side in the right hand lane, nearly striking the curb. The driver was soon arrested for DUI. • An Officer stopped a gold Camry on Old Louisville Road after clocking it at 52mph in the 35mph zone. The driver was taken to jail when dispatch advised he had warrants for probation violation out of Paulding County.

• Shortly before 10pm, Deputies responded to a single vehicle accident on Belfast Keller Road where they found a Nissan Sentra overturned. A woman told them she was the driver, and soon admitted she’d been drinking, smoking marijuana, and doing cocaine. Deputies had to help her walk to the front of the ambulance to take a breath test, and she kept repeating “I was driving drunk... I wrecked my sister’s car...” She refused medical treatment, and was released on subpoena and Deputies took her to her home. (“Can you believe we filled our quota with just one stop?!” said one Deputy to the other.) • Around 2:30am, a Deputy was patrolling Ash Branch Road near Bulloch County due to the number of recent burglaries in the area. He noticed a Chevy Malibu that was pulling in and out of several driveways. He made an investigative stop on the car, and noticed the four people inside were switching seats. He spoke with the woman now sitting behind the steering wheel, told her he knew she wasn’t driving, and she insisted she was. He also noticed the odor of alcohol on her breath.

AMAZING, TRULY AMAZING GRACE! By grace you have been saved. - Ephesians 2:5 NAS

Have you any idea of the mess you were in, or moving toward, when God reached down and saved you? Perhaps an illustration may help you get the picture. If you took your children to a petting zoo and a little lamb came running towards you, you probably wouldn't be afraid at all because lambs are harmless. You might even reach out your hand and let the lamb lick it. But let's say you're at the zoo and the alarm goes out that a lion has escaped from its cage. If you're standing there and that lion comes running towards you, you'll be terrified and start to run because you know what lions can do. But just suppose that the runaway lion corners you in one part of the zoo and comes up to you but instead of attacking you it gently licks your hand the way the lamb did. If that happened whose gentleness would you appreciate more, the lamb's or the lion's? You'd appreciate the lion's gentleness more because you know that he could just as easily have destroyed you without violating his nature as a lion. Well, grace is God's kindness and gentleness to us when He could have backed us into a corner as guilty sinners and destroyed us without violating His Holy character. But

In Loving Memory of

God wanted to make us His children, so instead of expressing His wrath against us, He poured it out upon His own sinless Son on the cross. Jesus took our punishment so God could embrace us. Hence, we have a brand-new relationship with God through grace. Isn't that amazing! By Cup of Cheer and passed along by www.christianvoices. org.

Need some help heading in the right direction?

Some days, life is going along just fine, and then a financial jam, career crisis, relationship conflict or other unexpected problem leaves us feeling frustrated and helpless. If you’re feeling “stuck” in some difficult circumstances, maybe it’s time to try something new. Join us at Ash Street Baptist Church for some new insight and encouragement. You might find just what you need to turn it around!!

Our Father, (and what a privilege it is that, as Christians and Children of God, we can call you Father), Which art in heaven, (where, as believers in the death and resurrection of your son Jesus Christ, we'll join you one day), Hallowed be thy name (the name above all names), Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven (and help me Lord, to be an instrument of your will). Give us this day our daily bread (we are grateful, Lord, that you meet our every need). And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil (for the Evil One is always after those that are drawing closer to you, Lord), for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever, Amen.
