Police Reports POOLER • Just before 9am, Officers responded to a domestic incident where a man was trying to leave the home to go to work, and his wife was blocking the door trying to talk to him about financial issues. He then tried to leave through the back door, but she again blocked him. Next, he tried calling 911 to get Police to help him out of the home, but she took the phone from him and hung it up. The Officers asked the wife for her side of the story, and she agreed that she knew her husband was trying to call 911 and she took the phone from him, preventing the call from going through. At that point, she was identified as the primary aggressor and was arrested for interfering with an emergency call and with simple battery. (Lots of domestic issues being reported, caused primarily by this lousy economy...) • At 3am, an Officer noticed a Ford Explorer stopped at the traffic light on Parsons Street at Hwy 80 without the headlights on. When the light turned green, the driver pulled through the intersection, and the Officer made a traffic stop. He asked the driver for his license, and the man handed over a North Carolina license that was unreadable. That’s because it had expired in January of 2009. He was then arrested for driving while unlicensed and taken to jail. • Around 5am, Police got several calls from drivers on I-95 about an intoxicated driver in a silver Pontiac that was “all over the road.” They were also advised that the driver had exited onto the Pooler Parkway, and one Officer was near the intersection with Benton Blvd. when she spotted the Pontiac. She pulled in behind it as the driver turned right on Benton. The driver could not stay in his lane, so the Officer activated her emergency equipment to make a traffic stop. The driver then stopped in the middle of Benton, taking up both lanes of the street. A few seconds later, he pulled off Benton onto the side road just past Home Depot. ____________________________________ Continued on page A3

Telling Tales at Live Oak Libraries By Dollie Gull

Wright Clarkson is a storyteller from North Carolina who learned his craft at home among other storytellers in a time when family gatherings included tales, tall and true. “I guess my grandma was the source of my storytelling abilities, for she had wonderful tales to tell whenever the family gathered for an after-dinner confab or whenever there was a family reunion,” recounts Wright as he prepares a story telling gig at one of the Live Oak Public Libraries in the Savannah, Ga., area prior to Earth Day, 2014. There were always tales that centered around Mother Earth and her denizens, he recalls, unlimbering a Native American wooden flute wrapped in a protective deerskin covering. Beside him, he placed a well worn guitar case and a Native American drum as he prepared to regale very young library visitors at the Hinesville library, located some 30 miles south of Savannah. Later, he would visit libraries in the Live Oak Library system over the next few days in honor of April 22nd’s Earth Day. Besides appearing at the Live Oak Libraries, he made an Earth Day appearance and storytelling gig at Oglethorpe Mall. Known as the StoryGuy, tale teller Wright, a Charlotte resident, has been fascinating children with his tales of the Carolina woods and Southern culture since his daughter was a small child. Thinking back to those early story days, he recounts, “I’d always read to her each night at bedtime and we were visiting her pediatrician for the first office visit when she was quite small. “It was a scary experience for any little girl to be in a doctor’s office at such a young age. To distract her while we waited, I began telling her a story my grandma once told me,” he remembers. “Before long, I was surrounded by a number of young patients and their parents, probably all as anxious as my daughter about the venue and the events about to take place. “It was then that I discovered I had a gift for enthralling an audience with tales from both my grandma and other members of my family who lived in North Carolina’s backwoods’ territories. “Ours had been a simple life, closely allied to the earth and her creatures and, apparently, these topics were of great interest to people, both young and old, and I discovered I had a gift that proved helpful during my years of teaching

in public schools and now beneficial as I have become the StoryGuy full time in my retirement age.” Wright is the epitome of an old time storyteller with his unique homespun yarns, dressed in colorful handmade garments over pairs of well-worn jeans, with buckskin mid-calf boots, topped with an obviously handmade, a rough-hide farmer’s hat with rawhide string. His unique, handmade musical instruments are used to embellish his wonderful tales about alligators, snakes, raccoons and others of Mother Earth’s fabulous creatures, large and small.

When you allow unlawful acts to go unpunished, you’re moving toward a government of men rather than a government of law; you’re moving toward anarchy. And that’s exactly what we’re doing. -- John Wayne All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others. -- George Orwell Tell me why any American should respect the law? Because it’s moral? Not necessarily. Slavery was once the law of the land. Abortion is the law of the land today. Even in a nation like America, it’s not unusual for laws to be unfair, unjust, and even immoral. Is it because laws represent the will of the people? Not anymore. Today, the “law” is often summarily created from murky statutes by unelected bureaucrats who face no consequences for destroying people’s lives. Well, is the law at least equally applied? Absolutely not. Your political affiliation and how well connected you are to the regime in charge can have a direct bearing on whether you’re prosecuted for breaking the law and how serious the penalty will be. So, what’s left?

Respect for the law? Why should anyone respect arbitrary, immoral laws that aren’t equally applied and don’t reflect the will of the people? Under Barack Obama, the “law” in this country has become nothing more than whatever you can get away with and we’re likely to feel the consequences of that for decades to come. 1) Obamacare is whatever Barack Obama says it is: Barack Obama has no more legal right to change Obamacare all by his lonesome than Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin, or for that matter, Justin Bieber does. He simply doesn’t have the legal authority to delay the employer mandate, delay taxes that are written into law, or give subsidies through federal exchanges to places where no state exchange was set up. Yet, Obama has delayed or changed the meaning of the law 19 times as if he were Kim Jong- un, as opposed to the President of a republic. 2) There are different laws for Tea Parties and the Occupy Movement: In city after city, the Occupy Movement was allowed to protest without expensive permits, participants were allowed to illegally camp and in some places they were allowed to break the law with impunity, which is why it’s so

staggering that there were still almost 8,000 arrests by the time all the dirty hippies abandoned their tents and rape-free zones to go home and take showers. Meanwhile, Tea Party groups across the country weren’t given any similar breaks. Tea party activists... accused officials in at least four cities of giving preferential treatment to anti-Wall Street protesters, and one group in Richmond is asking the city to repay $8,000 spent for permits and other needs. ...The Richmond Tea Party said Mayor Dwight C. Jones’ administration sought permit fees, portable toilets and other demands for their events, but has given Occupy Richmond a free pass. The occupation has grown to a tent city, with a makeshift library, a volleyball net and a row of portable toilets. Jones has said that because he is a product of the civil rights movement he has allowed the Occupy protesters to remain since Oct. 17. “He’s sympathizing with them,” said Colleen Owens, a spokeswoman for the Richmond Tea Party. “We would never, as a tea party, have gotten away with not complying with the law.” Tea party organizers had to buy liability insurance, hire police and emergency personnel and even keep a

Rather than reading any of the studies that show no damage will come to the environment by building it, rather than considering that the pipeline would be much safer, environmentally speaking, than transporting that oil by truck or railroad, Obama just goes along with the donor and continues to put off making a decision to build it!

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Regarding Effingham Politics...

Dear Editor, Paul Harvey’s radio broadcast, “The Rest of the Story” told little known facts about some event/ person of his choosing. His voice and manner of delivery plus his information made him a well known and well loved story teller. He ended the broadcast with these words, “And now you know --- The rest of the story!” The unfounded challenge to Vera Jones’ bid for a public office she has held for four years provides the launch for the rest of the story.

defibrillator on site, Owens said. When groups all across the country are charged thousands of dollars for permits and liability insurance solely because of their political beliefs while other groups are given a free pass, there is no equality under the law. 3) Illegal immigration becomes legal: Admittedly, George W. Bush did a mediocre job of securing the border and enforcing immigration law. However, as a practical matter, illegal immigration isn’t “illegal” anymore. Obama has illegally passed his own version of the DREAM Act, illegally handed out work permits to people who are breaking the law, and for all intents and purposes, has stopped detaining illegal immigrants who haven’t been charged with other crimes. According to Senator Jeff Sessions, “at least 99.92% of illegal immigrants and visa overstays without known crimes on their records did not face removal.” This is despite the fact that being here illegally is a crime and the people who broke that law did so knowing that the penalty was deportation. Tens of millions of immigrants have been welcomed to this country because as EVERYONE is well aware, we already have a “path to citizenship” for non- Americans and it’s called following the law. 4) The IRS illegally targeted Tea Partiers: If the IRS ever comes after you, try refusing to hand over documentation for years and pleading the 5th Amendment and see what happens to you. If you’re lucky, maybe you’ll end up in the same minimum security prison that Wesley Snipes went to after some advisors convinced him he

She approached the driver and asked him for his license and insurance. The Pooler man spent several minutes trying to find his insurance card, even after he’d handed it to the Officer. He then handed over his license and began looking through his car again. The Officer then told him he’d already given her his insurance card and showed it to him. “I did? ...That’s mine???” Of course his speech was slurred, he had the odor of alcohol about him, and his eyes were bloodshot and glassy. He agreed to take the initial breath test, and blew a .189. She placed him under arrest for DUI and advised him of the charges. That’s about the time he realized how bad this was gonna be for him. He’d suddenly remembered that his commercial driver’s license might be suspended for a DUI, and he became very uncooperative. The Officer was able to call the man’s mother to come and get his car to save him the expense of the towing fee. He was then transported to the Police Department for the paperwork to be processed before his trip to jail. There, he refused to take the state test of his breath and began accusing the Officers of harassment and racial discrimination. He was refusing to provide any information for the booking report, and when the Officer asked for his social security number, he jumped up and stepped towards ____________________________________ Continued on page A4

names of the Effingham Seven who filed affidavits against her candidacy in a one/two dimensional account. The question is why after a term in office and a period of seven years would this group be willing to rehash events they would just as soon forget? Why, indeed? The years ’06 and ’07 were prolific years for Effingham County. Business was booming and subdivisions were springing up everywhere. The questionable and sometimes illegal use of zoning, water, and sewer were the tools that led to the countless bankruptcies that resulted in lawsuits against the county. Maybe you could care less

about the developers, but they were the foundation of the Effingham County economics apart from government employment. Today, we feel the result. Light brings healing; more light on that troubling time would lead to healing the wrongs that are crippling and serve to remind present and future candidates, taxpayers will not protect corruption. Not at any cost. The rest of the story needs to be told. My guess is that it won’t be Effingham Now/Herald/ Effingham Seven who will tell it.

didn’t have to pay taxes. Yet, after the IRS targeted Tea Partiers because they were conservative, tried to refer them for prosecution to the DOJ, and illegally released some of their information to outside parties, the IRS officials have been refusing to cooperate with the investigation. If the IRS wasn’t guiltier than Wesley Snipes, it would be cooperating just like the rest of us are forced to do when we face an audit.

ultimately the moral and legal authority on which attorneys general must depend. ....I fear that refusing to defend unpopular or politically distasteful laws will ultimately weaken the legal and moral authority that attorneys general have earned and depend on. We will become viewed as simply one more player in a political system rather than as legal authorities in a legal system. The courts, the governments we represent and, most important, the people we serve will treat our pronouncements and arguments with skepticism and cynicism. When the “law” becomes little more than politics by other means, it deserves to be treated with the same rich contempt that we hold for politicians in this country. That has already started to happen, it’s not good for the country, and much to the chagrin of the liberals who love this lawlessness as long as they’re in charge, it’s not going to end with Obama.

5) Eric Holder encouraged state attorney generals to refuse to defend traditional marriage in court: In other words, if your state passes a ban on gay marriage, Holder wants state attorney generals to undercut the will of the people in order to further his political agenda. So according to Eric Holder, whether the people of a state get to have a representative in court depends on whether or not liberal attorney generals agree with their opinion or not. As John Suthers, the attorney general of Colorado, said: I have been attorney general of Colorado for nine years, during which time the state has enacted laws that span the philosophical and political spectrum. I personally oppose a number of Colorado’s laws as a matter of public policy, and a few are contrary to my religious beliefs. But as my state’s attorney general, I have defended them all — and will continue to. ...Depending on one’s view of the laws in question, such a “litigation veto” may, in the short term, be a terrific thing; an unpopular law is defanged and the attorney general can take credit — indeed, he can be the hero to his political base and keep his political ambitions intact. But in the longer term, this practice corrodes our system of checks and balances, public belief in the power of democracy and

her shouting numbers out loud. He was quickly put back in his seat and then taken to the patrol car for the trip to jail. At that point, he began screaming “F” bombs, which led to an additional charge of disorderly conduct. (It’s that moment when you realize your bad choices are going to have bad consequences that you tend to lose it!) • Just before 3pm, an Officer was eastbound on Pine Barren Road near Timberland Gap when he observed a Ford pickup westbound that was passing other vehicles in a no passing zone. He also clocked the pickup at 34mph in the 25mph school zone. He turned around and followed the truck to make a traffic stop, but the driver turned into the middle school parking lot. He then followed the driver as she turned to go into the elementary school parking lot, and passed several other cars on the wrong side of the roadway. She then stopped in the roadway, next to the parking lot, got out of her truck and began to walk away. The Officer called for her to return to her vehicle, and the woman said she wasn’t trying to run from the Police. Her attitude was derogatory and her emotions swung from happy to mad. After the Officer explained the reason for the traffic stop, she claimed she’d only passed one car and had been waved on by the driver. The Officer never saw that. She then indicated she was in a hurry to pick up her son. He asked the woman for her license, and she handed over her ID card. Her license had been suspended for a DUI, but she claimed she had paperwork that allowed her to continue to drive. She couldn’t locate it in the glove box, and then claimed it was at her home and she could get a family member to bring it. The Officer checked the system online and saw no notes that she had a permit to drive, so he placed her under arrest for driving while suspended. Her mother soon arrived to take possession of her truck, and she didn’t bring any paperwork with her. The woman was transported to jail, and her emotions continued to swing from one extreme to another. Further, every time the Officer would explain why she’d been arrested, it was never a good enough reason for her.

EFFINGHAM COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE • Around 10pm, a Deputy responded to the Parker’s convenience store in Springfield for a report of an assault that had occurred earlier. A Springfield Officer was there with the witness, and told him the man wasn’t making any sense. The man couldn’t tell him who’d been involved in the fight or if anyone was hurt. He also told him his car had been stolen, but he was still in possession of his car keys. His mother was on the scene trying to get him to get in her car so she could take him home, but the man was insisting that someone at home wanted to kill him. The Deputy finally asked the man if he would go to the hospital for an evaluation, and the man agreed to do that. • At 2am, Deputies responded to an Effingham neighborhood where a woman told them a man in a red pickup had pulled into her yard and hit her car. She said the man then backed out of the yard and headed elsewhere in the neighborhood. As they were speaking with her, the truck stopped at an intersection just down the road. She pointed it out and the Deputies went after it, stopping the driver at another intersection. As the driver got out of the truck, they could see that he was intoxicated, stumbling to keep his balance and reeking of alcohol. The Deputy told him they were investigating a hit and run, and the man claimed someone had taken his truck and he’d just gotten it back and was headed home. He was soon on his way to jail for DUI. • A Florida man contacted Deputies from a Rincon car wash and told them his Hummer had been damaged while he was cleaning it. The Deputy checked it out and saw that the rear passenger door handle wasn’t seated properly. He also could see that the door handle had been glued in place previously. They glued it in place again hoping it will stay in place until the man gets back to Daytona. (I doubt that State Farm is going to cover that!) • Deputies responded to a home for a domestic dispute and met with a young man who complained that he and his mother had been arguing. He said she always threatens to call 911, so he took the initiative to call before she could. He went on to say that his mother belittles him and he wants it to stop. He went on to explain that he’s been living with his parents for the past eight months, trying to find a job so that he can move out. Then they spoke with Momma.

The son agreed to get his affairs in order and be out within thirty days. • A Deputy met with two women in the jail lobby, and they described an on-going issue with a man they identified as a “Tier 3 Sex Offender” from South Carolina. They went on to describe some type of hearsay deviant complaints that had earned the man this status. Then they explained that he’d approached them at Keller’s Flea Market, and the business manager refused to have the man removed from the business. Next, they com-

plained that they’ve somehow been harassed on Facebook and by phone. All they wanted from the Deputy was a Miscellaneous Incident information report. They said they plan to check with the South Carolina Sex Offender Registry to see if the man is allowed to be in the South Georgia area.

The Best News Ever in a World Filled with Bad News By Dr. Michael Youssef

Much of the world will be celebrating Easter this week. Unfortunately, in the West, secular humanism has relegated the Christian Easter to mere “Easter bunnies” and “Easter eggs.” That degeneration can be closely linked to Western society’s replacement of “thinking” with “feeling.” We have replaced the thermostat with the thermometer. We have given up on rigorous intellectual debate of facts and irrefutable truth and replaced it with “that’s fine if that’s how you feel about it.” Perhaps the trend is no clearer than when the media—and consequently, the man on the street—expresses an opinion on the resurrection of Jesus Christ. In the past, people either accepted or rejected Christ’s resurrection as a fact of history. But in today’s post-modern culture— where most of the “thinking” takes place between the nose and the chin—people are apt to say, “Jesus rose from the dead? So what?” That attitude perpetuates apathy about the most important event in human history, which in turn causes people to miss out on the greatest news they could ever personally experience—news that brought about Western civilization itself. For the thinking person, Christ’s resurrection is the best

news ever because the evidence for it is overwhelming: 1. It was recorded by four independent accounts, which accurately reported many small details, such as the number of angels at the tomb, the number of women who went to the tomb, the time of their arrival, and the overall sequence of events. All the accounts are easily harmonized. 2. The removal of the tombstone and the presence of the grave cloth proved that Jesus’ body was no longer in the tomb. In the culture of that day, and with such a dense population, it would have been impossible to hide a body if it were stolen. The authorities could have easily produced it. 3. After Jesus’ resurrection, He appeared to not just a few women in the garden, but to a wide variety of people, including a group of 500. Surely 500 people could not have suffered a hallucination at the same time. 4. The resurrection changed things in dramatic ways, such as the change in the day of worship from Saturday to Sunday. But the greatest evidence of all might be how it changed the disciples and instilled in them a willingness to die a martyr’s death. Surely they would not have been willing to die a decade or two later for a lie or hallucination. As English educator and historian Thomas Arnold once said: “I know of no one fact in

the history of mankind which is proved by better and fuller evidence of every sort . . . than the great sign which God hath given us that Christ died and rose again from the dead.” In fact, some of the best books on the resurrection were written by lawyers (Frank Morison, Gilbert West, J.N.D. Anderson, among others)—some of whom had originally set out to disprove the resurrection. Sir Edward Clark, another English jurist, once wrote: “As a lawyer I have made a prolonged study of the evidences of the first Easter day. To me the evidence is conclusive and over and over again in the high court, I secured the verdict on evidence not nearly as compelling…” That’s why the resurrection of Jesus Christ is the greatest news of all—it is indeed great news, not just a great story. It is the ultimate truth, not just an opportunity to eat chocolate bunnies. And because it is true, every human on the face of the earth must respond to it one way or another.

No one is or ever has been immune from being hurt or harmed by arrows of anger that come from those we thought were our friends. Sometimes the statements that shame and slam us even come from members of our own family. And, unfortunately, some of us may even be guilty of doing to others what they have done to us and caused them pain and sleepless nights. We all know the feelings of pain and panic that come from “word wounds” and the problems they have caused us. David faced the same issues. He spoke of those who persecuted him and wanted to tear him to pieces as a lion destroys it’s prey. They rage and do wickedness, bring iniquity and bear falsehood and caused him trouble. Those powerful words leave very little to the imagination. He was not reporting any secondhand observations or reporting what others told him of their experiences. People were out to get him and he knew it. And, he responded to them in a way that sets the Christian standard for revenge. He turned the matter over to God! He began by affirming his relationship to God by declaring, “I come to you for protection, O Lord my God. Save me from my persecutors.” He knew exactly where to go and what to do to solve his problem and heal his wounded heart: He went to his Lord knowing that only He could save him from the harm that others would do to him if they could. We must do as David did. We must call upon the Lord to be our Defense and Defender in times of need.

The man said the tire repair was going to run about $80, and the engine cleaning, if it’s not ruined, would run around $240. • Just after 10pm, a woman called Deputies about a drunk neighbor that was harassing her and her guests. Deputies had already responded earlier to this complaint, and now they were back again. They saw the neighbor standing in his doorway, and watched as he stumbled outside. The man staggered across his yard toward the common driveway, then had to grab the guide wires of a telephone pole to keep from falling down as he stumbled on towards the woman’s home. The Deputy met with him in the driveway and advised him he was under arrest for public intoxication. The man, call Judith Herren at 912-335-5027, email at or drop by the ministry on Ogeechee Road across from Keller’s Flea Mkt. Harvest Light Ministries has picked up this effort for 2014 and look forward to working with many Christians and leaders for future events.

immediately voiced his displeasure over that, and began to resist the Deputy’s attempts to put the handcuffs on his wrists. Once he was in the rear seat of the Deputy’s patrol car, the man began beating his forehead against the partition and was yelling profanities the whole time. The Deputy got him to calm down briefly and the man said his neighbor had stolen his $600 cellphone and his $1000 radio. The man then claimed he’d been asleep when the Deputy pulled up and that he never left his home. He was taken to jail to sleep it off. • Deputies responded to one of the elementary schools where the principal couldn’t get a mother to understand that she has to sign in to enter the school. The woman insists that her child’s teacher email her every morning to let her know that her child made it to class safely. The principal tried explaining to her that the teacher’s responsibility is to all of the children, not just to her child. The woman went on to explain to the Deputies that ____________________________________ Continued on page A10

Stand just off Ford Avenue in Richmond Hill, and imagine people there from an earlier time. Go back before Henry Ford, before Civil War passersbys, and before area rice planters. Go back thousands of years in fact, and meet the Guale, pronounced “Wall-ee,” a Native American tribe living “right where we’re standing, probably,” said historian Danny Brown. Brown spoke in the first Thursdays lecture series at the Richmond Hill History Museum for the Richmond Hill Historical Society. As Brown talked, he’d pick up or demonstrate items from the table in front of him, which included: Skins, pottery shards and arrowheads. “He has an extensive collection of Native American artifacts,” said Christy Sherman, president of the Richmond Hill Historical Society. “The history in this area is just oozing,” said Ron Burns, a board member with the Historical Society who attended the Thursday event. The Guale were tattooed, of average height, wore shell beads and topknots, according to Brown. They likely lived in the area for 6,000 years until 1640, he said. That news that the tribe lived so long locally was a new fact to Richmond Hill resident Elizabeth Hanafin, who heard about the lecture from a friend. “I’m interested in ancient cultures,” she said. When the Spanish came to the area, their diseases helped kill off the Guale within years. They didn’t live long like other tribes, Brown

Participants in the Thursday lecture series at the Richmond Hill Museum get a closer look at historian Danny Brown’s artifacts. Photo by Leslie Moses said. But when they did live, they were hunters and gatherers, and later, more agricultural. But as hunters, they followed herds for food. They hunted woolly mammoths, and because of finding the animal’s teeth nearby, Brown said “we know that they were here in the area.” Guale also ate crab, alligator and turtles. They made traps of palm tree fibers and turtle bone hooks to catch their food. But the “Wal-Mart” of the Guale tribe was deer, according to Brown. Every part of the animal, from sinew to hide, was usable. Many years later, the well-known question of “You got a buck on you?” would come from traders looking to get things from the deer skins. “It was the amount of hides you would trade for these items,” Brown said. Brown also talked of the Guale’s technology. Pointed sticks came first, used for close-up attacks. An atlatl was their more advanced weapon, which was a throwing stick with removable and reloadable arrows. The Guale also used bows and arrows. Bow-makers in the area would have used oak and deer ligaments, and made arrows of river cane, turkey feathers and chert, which has properties of glass, according to Brown. Flint was not found here, but a large deposit of chert in Springfield was available to the Guale. And as the Guale got more into raising crops, they hunted less, and found more to do around their

The Deputies explained that she can only drop her child off at the school and leave, unless an appointment has been arranged through the Principal. • A man called Deputies and reported that flowers had been stolen from his family’s cemetery plot at a Rincon area cemetery. (Anybody caught and convicted for doing that should be forced to do some hard labor out in public!) • A Rincon man filed a report after some kook drove past his home and threw a gallon baggie containing a rock and a white supremacist brochure in his yard. Deputies agreed to put extra surveillance on his home. • A man told Deputies he’d gone

homes. They worked deer leather, soaking hides “in the brain of a deer,” Brown said, “and all the hair would fall off.” For gardening, Guale used conch shells on the ends of sticks, “pretty common in the area,” according to Brown. They also used conchs as drinking cups. And as for the plenteous Spanish moss around us, Guale used it in pottery and when building fires. After his lecture, Brown welcomed comments and questions. Several spoke of finding human bones in the area. Brown said that natives say that it’s OK to build on top of skeletons, but “just don’t dig them up.” One local man found and kept a skull, but promptly returned it because of “bad juju,” according to Brown. “He said all sorts of things were happening.” Brown invited his audience of 16 people to the table of artifacts: “Y’all come out and plunder if you like.” “I know it’s an extremely historical area,” said Terry Cole, another Richmond Hill resident at the lecture. Cole attended because of “curiosity about the Indian tribes in the area,” he said. “We have a saying at the museum that history follows the river,” Sherman said. She mentioned the nearby Ogeechee, and all those brought to the area because of the river: Native Americans, rice planters, Civil War soldiers and Henry Ford. “These monthly lectures are just a way to bring people closer to our history,” she said. into a Faulkville convenience store and set a pill bottle containing 90 Xanax pills and another containing 120 Percocets on the counter while he got some money out of the ATM machine. He said he then walked out the store and forgot about his medications. He remembered them a short while later and returned to the store, but the pill bottles were nowhere to be found. The Deputies spoke with the clerk, who remembered the man coming in, but didn’t remember seeing him set any prescription pill bottles down. She added that there were only two other customers that came in the store between the time the man came in and when he returned. • At 1:30am, a Deputy was northbound on Hwy 17 following a small red car that ventured over the fog line and then over the centerline before signalling to turn onto Hwy 30.

music and wonderful harmonies, performing in 1,000-year-old cathedrals in Europe or, as they did last Saturday, at a church in Springfield. Clark, his wife, Kelly, and daughters, Amber, 25, and Autumn, 17, known as the Nelons, performed at Abundant Life Church. The concert benefited the Treutlen House in Rincon and also featured the Joyful Noise Trio. Ushers collected nearly $1,100. This marked the sixth year in a row the Nelons have done a benefit concert for the Treutlen House, a community-based, ecumenical

ministry for children and families facing various difficulties that was in danger of being closed down by the state before the family stepped in. “We’re very excited it’s worked out,” says Clark, who along with his wife is opening an orphanage for 60 children in Guatemala. “The music is a launching pad for things

lot. The Deputy turned around as well, and made a traffic stop just after the driver turned onto Hwy 30. The man had the strong odor of alcohol coming from him, and spoke with slurred speech. He was wearing what seemed to be a miner’s hat... a hard hat with a flashlight on the front of it. Four other men were passengers in the car, and none would admit to owning the open bottle of Bud Light in the car. The driver exited the car, and admitted that he’d had a few, but he refused to submit to the sobriety tests. He was taken to jail on DUI charges. • A woman filed a fraud report with Deputies, explaining that she’d gotten a call from the IRS. Officer Michelle Brown had instructed her to pay her $1700 debt with a Green Dot Money Pack card or go to jail and lose everything she owned. So the woman went to the dollar store and got the Money Pack card and called the IRS back on the phone number they’d provided. She gave them the information from the back of the card, and IRS Officer Brown then asked how soon she could make another payment. The woman said she told her she had no more money. She said her brother called them back the next day and used several profanities with them wanting his sister’s money returned. They told him to check her bank account and that he would see that the money had been returned. The Deputy pointed out to the woman that they couldn’t return the money to her bank account if they didn’t have her banking information. When the Deputy called the phone number, a man answered and said he was an investigator for the IRS, but he hung up the phone when he heard the Deputy’s radio sound off. • A woman got a phone call from a collection agency claiming that she owed $1400 to Verizon Wireless and they were attempting to collect the debt. The woman told them she’s never been late with her account, and she was afraid this was another scam caller. But turns out it was the collection agency for Verizon, and that someone had used her personal information to open an account. That account has now been suspended. BRYAN COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE • Two men got into an argument while drinking beer outside a convenience store. One man said to the other “I’ll get you,” and the other man told the Deputies he was afraid the man will come and burn his house down. The Deputy told him how he could take out warrants against the man if he felt like he needed to after he sobered up. • The owner of a landscaping company told Deputies someone stole a $300 weedeater and a $300 edger off his trailer overnight while it was parked in his driveway overnight. • An Ellabell man told Deputies he’d left his 2012 ATV parked behind a metal shed so he could work on it. When he returned to work on the suspension, someone had stolen it. The ATV was valued at $9000. • A man told Deputies he was at the Parker’s store in Blitchton around 11pm. He looked outside and noticed a man in his driver’s seat, but figured the man was just looking for some loose change and did nothing about it. Later, he realized his cell phone was missing.

(Editor’s Note: Outdoor Truths is a weekly sportsman’s article that appears in newspapers and regional magazines across 13 states in the South, and Midwest. It is a blend of observations and experiences that have come over time from being in God’s great outdoors. We’re proud to offer this column for the outdoor sportsmen in our area.) I don’t consider myself computer illiterate but I’m also not a tech expert. I fall somewhere in-between. I used to spend more time learning about new gadgets but now I sort of just maintain until I’m forced to adapt or be left behind. One of the things that I’m trying to adapt to is my digital camera. I know, I know, don’t laugh. I’ve actually had the camera for a couple of years but all I’ve been doing is taking pictures the simplest way I could. I thought all of the buttons where there so they could sell it for more. (I feel the same way about my cell phone. Why can’t they just give me big numbers, lots of volume, and plenty of light?) I digress. I’ve always wanted to take pictures while I’m hunting or fishing but I never knew how to set up the timer feature. So this year I was determined (forced) to learn. I was tired of looking at all my pictures and always having the check-in station in the background. It sort of lost the effect of the hunt. This turkey season I’ve become a picture taking monster. I carry my bipod and my camera and have

taken some really neat shots of me holding a turkey while in the woods. I love it. Now while I’ve really enjoyed the more realistic pictures, they still don’t tell the story of each hunt. Each photo still has only three basic features; me, a turkey, and the woodsy background. The story is up to me to remember, relish, and share. If I were to show you one of these pictures you would simply admire the bird but be clueless to the effort that was involved in getting that gobbler from the limb to the lens. You might have assumed that it was an easy and effortless hunt and you may be wrong or right. When you and I look at each other we often do the same thing. We take a mental picture and quickly add our own story whether that story is accurate or not. We may assume that a person is rude or kind, arrogant or humble, aloof or approachable. However, most of the time, we just don’t know. Life is so much better when we give others the benefit of the doubt. It seems that we all default to seeing the bad and the negative. It’s the first button we learn to use on our

like this. We’re trying to be a conduit.” The Nelons do 175 shows a year and travel much of the time in a bus that offers all the comforts of their home back in Dallas, Ga. Later this year, they’ll travel to Sweden and Norway and perform in cathedrals dating back to the early 1000s. Clark acknowledges they occasionally get fatigued from all the travel, especially overseas, but their energy is renewed once they hit the stage. “We watch how the music penetrates people’s lives,” Clark says. “That’s what keeps the passion and fire lit.” For Clark, that passion and fire was kindled when he was growing up on a farm in Kentucky and taking part in the family music sessions. He says there wasn’t a whole lot to do where they lived, and music, played on his grandmother’s porch, brought them together and inspired him to keep him the family tradition. “Music was a way of life for my grandmother,” Clark says. “She taught us all how to play and sing harmony. My grandfather and father were professional musicians. I wanted to be like them.” Clark wrote his first gospel song when he was in third grade. “It was terrible,” he recalls. “My teacher made me sing it in front of the class.” Fortunately, Clark progressed as a songwriter. He says he enjoys writing. “It’s inside of me,” notes Clark, who wrote gospel and country songs for himself as well as oth-

In 1993, Clark joined the Nelons, featuring Kelly and her father, Rex, as a producer, arranger and band leader in 1993. Eight years later, he and Kelly married. It was inevitable their two daughters would follow suit. “They were raised on the road,” Clark says. “They could sing before they could talk. They’ve been blessed with beautiful voices and have a passion for music and performing.” Amber did perform on “American Idol,” and her father says she would have likely qualified for the finals if she had been willing to take a more secular approach to her songs. “She dipped her toe into that,” Clark says, “and discovered it wasn’t her thing.” The Nelons’ thing remains performing their music and relying on different styles, based on their locale. Clark, who writes the majority of the group’s songs, says it’s definitely a team effort when it comes to putting a song together. He adds they do little rehearsing and everything is based on harmonies. As to a common theme the songs convey, Clark says every lyric is about love beyond this world. “Me existing, that shows God loves me,” Clark says. “I’ve been trying to write about that ever since I started writing.” During a musical break, Clark told Saturday’s audience that God heals broken lives and all we have to do is trust Him. To illustrate this point, he related the story of Grady, a man from his church in Atlanta

dying of an aggressive form of cancer six years ago. Clark and some 800 congregation members rode church and school buses to Grady’s home and, upon arriving, recited scripture and performed songs, including Grady’s favorite, “I know who holds tomorrow,” in front of his place while Grady watched from his hospital bed that had been brought out onto the porch. “He had no fear,” says Clark, noting that Grady died several hours later. “He had gladness and the joy of the Lord.” Skip Wisniewski of Guyton attended Saturday’s concert and described the Nelons as great, combining elements of country, bluegrass and gospel. “At least they worship the Lord,” Wisniewski says. “Some performers sing gospel and worldly songs.” Clark, who is in his “40s,” says he expects to eventually slow down but not retire. His inspiration remains mentor and Christian musical artist Bill Gaither. “He’s 78 years old and is still going strong,” Clark says. “He has such a drive.”

High School Sports

By C. Edward Wilson

“How bout those Tigers?” Which ones? Those orange and reflex blues ones of Savannah State University concluded spring practice with their annual spring preview of what is to be expected next fall. The winning offense outscored the defense, 45-13. With the team splitting itself into an offensive and defensive team, the Savannah State University football players went at each other to show off what they had learned from their coaches led by Head Coach Earnest Wilson, III. What the fans came away with is a distinguished reality that a new Wilson is in town, not the head coach, but junior college transfer Ker-Sean Wilson. The junior quarterback completed 11 of 24 passes and got the fans in attendance out of their seats on several occasions with his passing and running, much to the delight of the Tiger faithful. Wilson said after the game

that he still has a long way to go become better at his craft, but overall he was happy with his performance. Wilson came to the Tigers from Eastern Arizona Community College via high school in Columbia, S.C. His statistical line would have been even better if some of his passes could have been caught by a receiving core he is getting to know on a daily basis. The SSU defense got on the board first as defensive back Brandon Jackson-Bell picked off a Leon Prunty pass and returned it for a touchdown. It was the only score in the opening four quarter game. The orange team put up 14 points in the second quarter and that was how the first 24 minutes of action ended. Scoring on runs of three and four yards was sophomore running back Alex Simmons. For the game, the Tigers completed 20 of 56 passes between four quarterbacks with three interceptions on the day. The running back group rushed 54

times for a total of 148 yards. Leon Prunty was the first quarterback to see action for SSU. He was followed by Victorian Hardison. Both struggled, but the ground game set the tone for the offense by gaining a couple of first downs. Transfer student Richard Williams got some bruising rushes and set the tone for Simmons to carry the ball into the end zone. In the third quarter, Wilson accounted for a large rushing total as he outran the defense for a 25yard touchdown run that fueled the fervor of those in attendance. Another bright spot was the kicking duo of Preston McCarthy and John Barron. They kicked field goals in the quarter with Barron kicking through the crossbars with room to spare. All in all the Tigers gave a good accounting of themselves. If hope springs eternal, then the coming 2014 football season that kicks off at Middle Tennessee State University in August, should be the beginning of something special for SSU.
