from the editor

Dear Reader, Welcome to the new edition of the Official Bulloch County Guide. Our staff has worked hard over several months to provide you with this reference guide that we hope you’ll keep in a handy place for months to come. We appreciate the support of all who have contributed to this project, including our local advertisers, who appreciate your business most. Whether you are a newcomer or neighbor, the longer you live here, the more you’ll like it. I am a relative newcomer myself, having moved here in April 2012 after being named editor. I enjoy continuing to discover all that Statesboro has to offer. Located a short drive from the Atlantic Ocean, Bulloch County is known for a great climate, championship football teams, award-winning barbecue and even a few musical legends. Bulloch County is a growing, progressive community combining small-town charm and rich agricultural heritage with a college town to produce a great place to live, work, play and raise a family. People living here enjoy clean air and water, great job and educational opportunities with excellent

schools, churches, restaurants, recreational and cultural activities. Our state-of-the art 911 Center, expanded fire, EMS and law enforcement facilities and low crime rate are evidence of the area’s commitment to public safety. The police, fire, sheriff’s and EMS departments respond to community needs, enforcing state and local ordinances, protect life and property, investigate criminal matters, and strive to preserve peace, prevent crime and civil disorder. Every year, Bulloch County welcomes new residents and new businesses. Our people make up the heart of the community and really set it apart from other south Georgia communities. Many residents who leave here eventually return to stay. Statesboro — and all of Bulloch County — is a caring and giving community. I urge you to join your neighbors to become involved in ways that fit your lifestyle: play sports, participate in the arts or volunteer for a nonprofit agency. The more we give, the greater our reward. Sincerely,

Jason Wermers Editor

Statesboro a brief history

By Dr. Delma Presley

for Statesboro’s Bicentennial celebration in 2003

Let me tell you about Statesboro.

It is not Charleston, for sure — not even Savannah. Some places make you feel ashamed if you don’t have a pedigree. They require you to trace your family back five generations to qualify for the Newcomers’ Club. Thank goodness Statesboro is not that kind of place. Maybe this relaxed attitude springs from the origins of the town. After all, Statesboro was a gift. Bulloch County was formed in 1796. Five years later, it dawned on someone that to be a proper county, Bulloch needed a seat of government. The person who made this observation happened to live in Augusta, but he owned thousands of acres in the middle of the county. George Siebald gave almost 200 acres for the new town in 1801. Two years later, on Dec. 19, 1803, Gov. John Milledge signed into law the legislative act creating Statesborough. They built Statesboro, but nobody came, except when Superior Court opened for session twice a year. Bulloch County begins to grow. Throughout the late 1800s, Bulloch County grew by leaps and bounds. Families lived close to the land and reaped harvests of cotton, corn and vegetables. Livestock flourished. A problem for farmers, however, was their distance from the markets in Savannah and Augusta. By 1880, there were more than 8,000 people in Bulloch County. The population of Statesboro was 25 — about three families. Then, a freshly minted lawyer from Bryan County moved to town, hoping to practice law. He recently had graduated from Mercer College and passed the Georgia bar exam. His name was James Alonzo (Lonnie) Brannen. He noticed there were three houses, but counted only a dozen people. He also noticed something else: dozens of outsiders came to town when court was in session. But they didn’t buy anything. Neither did they sell anything. They conducted their business elsewhere. Lonnie Brannen put his head together with a few other young people — mostly newcomers. You have seen their names all around town: Blitch, Olliff, Lester, Hall, Preetorius and others. They developed a plan to make a real city out of Statesboro. The first step was a big one: hook up Statesboro with the mighty Central of Georgia Railroad. By 1889, glistening lines of steel linked Statesboro to Central’s Dover Station. Now, progress was on track, and the dream of

Statesboro as a hub city began to come true. Another vision shared by the newcomers led to the establishment of what is now Georgia Southern University. Neighboring towns also wanted the First District Agricultural and Mechanical School. But the people of Statesboro put together a negotiating team that would not take “no” for an answer. Doctors, lawyers, the county commission, and City Council traveled with that determined committee of 100 in December 1906. They kept bidding until no one top could theirs — $125,000, including 300 acres and free utilities for 10 years. When the jubilant volunteers returned on the evening of Dec. 6, 2006, the entire town gathered at the train station to celebrate. That was the first Day for Southern. Who is Statesboro? Statesboro is Florence Williams whom Lonnie Brannen appoints as publisher and editor of the city’s first newspaper in 1889 — the Statesboro Eagle. Miss Williams, perhaps, was the first female publisher in Georgia. Statesboro is Professor William James — standing 6-1/2 feet tall, dressed in a business suit — as he mobilizes the white and black communities to build a school for children who never before had an opportunity to learn. Statesboro is Raif Simmons, who cannot write his name but who flawlessly calculates columns of numbers. He proves to farmers they can get a much better deal in the Statesboro market than in Savannah. For every bale of Sea Island Cotton sold in Savannah, Mr. Simmons and other brokers sell 10. Between 1903 and 1908, Statesboro becomes the world’s leading market in Sea Island Cotton (hence, the name of the bank). The spirit of innovation lives on, and we see it in the city’s highly successful regional industrial park with several national industries. The new hospital is a regional hospital. The old A&M School is a regional university, now with more than 20,000 students, a powerhouse in both academics and athletics. And in many ways, the dream of William James lives on in the public school system. Ogeechee Technical College provides a wide range of technical courses and degrees, fulfilling the aspirations of Professor James. In short, Statesboro has become what its first mayor had hoped: a true hub of commercial, industrial, educational and cultural activity in southern Georgia.

area map & facts The City of Statesboro is a progressive community providing an exceptional quality of life to its residents and offering Southern charm and hospitality to its visitors. Statesboro has a growing economy facilitated by a strong industrial base, a growing university and a regional medical center. This regional economic hub is 15 miles from I-16 and offers many educational and vocational opportunities that provide a competitive advantage for a strong workforce. Education: Bulloch County has three institutions of higher learning: Georgia Southern University, East Georgia State College and Ogeechee Technical College. Accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges & Schools, GSU offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs through the doctoral level in 117 majors in its eight colleges. Ogeechee Tech offers 112 programs of study including 33 diploma programs and 60 certificate programs as well as 19 associate degrees. East Georgia State College, based in Swainsboro, has a Statesboro campus on U.S. 301 South. East Georgia offers 21 programs of study and online degrees in general studies, psychology and sociology along with a bachelor’s degree in biology. Bulloch County has 15 district-run public schools, three private schools and one charter school. These schools educate the area’s approximately 10,000 students. Health Care: As the home of East Georgia Regional Medical Center, Statesboro is a regional healthcare leader. With more than 750 employees and 75 physicians representing a wide range of specialties, EGRMC is a JCAHO-accredited 150-bed hospital. East Georgia offers a 24-hour physician-staffed emergency department, a Level II neonatal center, outpatient services including same-day surgery and ambulatory care, a pain center, a cardiac catheterization lab and state-of-the-art diagnostic procedures including MRI and CT. Recreation: Recreational opportunities are plentiful. The Willie McTell Trail is a linear park that provides a pedestrian walk and bicycle path from the GSU campus to downtown Statesboro. The first phase of the S&S Greenway, connecting Gentilly Road to Pretoria Rushing Road, was completed in spring 2012. It is a 2.7-mile trail for bicycles and pedestrians. The entire greenway will connect Statesboro and Brooklet when it is finished. Also located in Statesboro is a family-fun

water park and aquatics center, Splash in the Boro. Nineteen hotels, motels and bed & breakfast inns with 816 rooms are in the greater Statesboro area.  Culture: Statesboro’s residents and visitors alike enjoy cultural and performing arts in the Averitt Center for the Arts on East Main Street. The restoration of the Old Bank of Statesboro, originally built in 1911, as a venue for community arts, activities and performances has played a key role in the revitalization of downtown. The Averitt Center, home of the Emma Kelly Theater, is operated by the Statesboro Arts Council and is a vibrant centerpiece in the city’s historic downtown. Two stateof-the arts performing venues, the Performing Arts Center and the Center for Art & Theatre, are located on the Georgia Southern University campus. Transportation: Statesboro is served by Ogeechee Railway Company and numerous common freight carriers. The city and Bulloch County jointly own the Statesboro Municipal Airport, just outside the city limits on U.S. 301 North. Statesboro is 45 minutes from Savannah International Airport, which is served by seven major airlines. Statesboro is about 50 miles from the Savannah ports, while Bulloch County is roughly equidistant from the ports of Charleston, S.C., Beaufort, S.C., Brunswick, Ga., and Jacksonville, Fla., giving several options on ports and sailing frequency. Media: Seven local radio stations serve Statesboro: WVGS-FM (91.9), WHKN-FM (94.9), WPMX-FM (102.9), WZBX-FM (106.5), WMCD-FM (107.3), WPTB-AM (850) and WWNS-AM (1240), and one daily newspaper, the Statesboro Herald.

All elections are nonpartisan and the terms are for four years, with half of the members elected every two years. The City Council appoints the city manager to head the administrative functions of city government. Services provided by the city are general government, judicial, public safety and public works.

Bulloch County tax information Tax Commissioner James Deal, an elected official, is responsible for the collection of county (unincorporated areas) property taxes. The tax office, located in the Bulloch County Annex building at 115 N. Main St., also sells vehicle tags and mobile home tags. Bulloch County’s tax rate is one of the lowest in the state of Georgia. Newcomers have 30 days to register their vehicles with the Tag Office. Bulloch County uses a staggered tag renewal schedule. Renewals are due on the vehicle owner’s birthday or within 30 days before that date. The standard tag fee is $20, however specialty tags (vanity, veteran, university, wildlife, etc.) are available for an extra fee. Under a new law, vehicles sold in Georgia since March 1, 2013, no longer will be subject to annual ad valorem tax, or so-called “birthday tax.” But newcomers to the state must pay 50 percent of the newly instituted Title Ad Valorem Tax, or TAVT, within 30 days of moving to Georgia, and the other half within the next 12 months.This applies even if the new Georgia resident paid sales tax in the previous state.The TAVT is 6.5 percent of the estimated value of the vehicle. Ad valorem tax, more commonly known as property tax, is assessed on homes and land and is a large source of revenue for governments in Georgia. The basis for ad valorem taxation is the fair market value of the property, which is established Jan. 1 of each year. The tax is levied on the assessed value of the property which, by law, is established at 40 percent of the fair market value. The amount of tax is determined by the tax rate (mill rate) levied by various entities (one mill is equal to $1 for each $1,000 of assessed value or .001). Property taxes are generally mailed in November and due 60 days later. The current county millage rate is 20.59 mills, which equates to approximately $1,080 in property taxes on a $100,000 home without the homestead exemption. In addition, the county also assesses an additional fire district tax on homes located outside Statesboro’s city limits, but within 5 miles of a fire station. Because the city fire department provides fire protection and services to these home, owners pay slightly higher taxes but receive lower home owner insurance rates. Other taxes currently paid by residents include a sales tax and voter-approved Special Purpose Local Option

Sales Taxes, or SPLOSTs, which are funding capital improvement projects and new school construction. According to the Tax Assessor’s website, the maintenance and operation of Bulloch County public schools uses 46 percent of the tax budget. Fifty one percent of the budget is used for other Bulloch County public services such as the 911 Call Center, Bulloch County EMS Services, rural fire department services, the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Department and Jail, the Correctional Institute and the Bulloch County court system. The Bulloch County Tax Assessor’s Office maintains a searchable website including sales, assessed values, maps and other tax information, at

What services do property taxes support? The Bulloch County 911 Center fields an average of 5,700 calls per month, about half of which need emergency services assistance. For a charge, Bulloch County also answers and dispatches emergency calls for Candler and Evans counties. Bulloch County EMS operates eight ambulances and responds to an average of 500 calls per month, transporting on an average of 445 of those calls. The Bulloch County Fire Department operates eight volunteer stations, manned by 150 trained volunteer firefighters using 21 engines. The department answers an average of 60 calls per month. The Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office patrols more than 1,200 miles of road, responds to nearly 500 calls per month and provides safety and security for the Bulloch County Court System. The jail has a 400-inmate capacity. The Bulloch County Correctional Institute has the capacity to hold 170 inmates. The institute provides inmates for 47 county work details and provides maintenance for all county vehicles and equipment. The Bulloch County Court System maintains thousands of paper files and records, operates all county civil and criminal court cases and provides marriage licenses, gun permits, birth certificates and more. The Bulloch County Animal Shelter is a last-chance shelter for dogs and cats in need of a home. The shelter is located just off U.S. Highway 301 North, at 81 Mill Creek Road, just outside the Statesboro city limits. New adoptable pets arrive daily.

BULLOCH COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS Bulloch County Schools is the county’s second-largest employer with more than 1300 employees, and its student population is approaching 10,000. The school district includes 15 schools and one Transitions Learning Center, all of which are accredited by AdvancEd, formerly the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. BCS is a system that seeks strong input from the community. Most recently, more than 700 community stakeholders took part in a three-month community engagement process to help the school system develop a comprehensive strategic plan. BCS is also partnering with the Statesboro-Bulloch County Chamber of Commerce, post-secondary institutions, local small businesses and industry, Jobs for the Future and the Harvard Graduate School of Education to bring the Pathways to Prosperity initiative to Bulloch County. Leaders from each of these entities met in May 2014 for a series of interviews in order to conduct an asset-mapping report for the community. This will help our community focus on developing a work plan to develop strong grades 9–14 career pathways that are supported by regional stakeholders and aligned with local and area labor-market needs. In its most recent 2011 accreditation evaluation, AdvancEd commended the school district for its caring and nurturing environments for students, its teaching force, and the genuine love that students, parents and personnel have for their individual schools. The school system’s commitment to fine arts, the value placed on human resources, and effective communication are other strengths noted by the accreditation team. BCS is home to 2014 Georgia Teacher of the Year Jemelleh Coes of Langston Chapel Middle School. In fact, in the past six years, three teachers from the school system have been selected as top-10 finalists for the Georgia Teacher of the Year. BCS is also home to 2013 SECME National Co-Teacher of the Year Richard McCombs of Statesboro High School. These are just two of the more than 10 faculty members who have been recognized at both the national and state level for their achievements in education. The district works to provide its faculty with modern classrooms and technology. More than $100 million has been invested in constructing new schools and facilities in past six years, including four new schools (Statesboro 14 • Bulloch County Guide 2014

High, Julia P. Bryant Elementary, Sallie Zetterower Elementary, and Mattie Lively Elementary). The new elementary schools feature a unique concept of using the buildings’ walls and floors to teach children in a museumlike atmosphere making the curriculum come to life in every corridor. Two of the newer facilities, Statesboro High School and Southeast Bulloch High School, were recognized by American School & University Magazine as examples of Outstanding Design and were featured in its annual Architectural Portfolio issues in 2009 and 2010. AdvancEd further commended the district on its proactive fiscal planning and actions that have placed the system on a firm financial foundation during turbulent economic times. That planning has allowed BCS to maintain operations and still invest in infrastructure and technology. The school system’s financial management has been recognized at the national level. Standard & Poor’s (S&P), the nation’s second-leading bond rating firm, raised its school issuer credit rating on Bulloch County Schools’ general obligation bonds from A Plus to AA Minus, according to a RatingsDirect Summary released in October 2011. The summary lists “the district’s consistently favorable financial performance despite the recession’s ongoing revenue pressures,” and the school district’s “proactive budget management” as some of the


in bulloch county primary reasons for the increase. In April 2012, the Center for Digital Education, the National School Boards Association and Convergemag. com ranked BCS eighth in the nation among midsized districts for its use of technology. This is a result of not only implementing the technology but effectively training faculty and students on how best to utilize the latest instructional technology tools. Providing instructional technology tools for faculty and students is a major focus. BCS has installed interactive SMART Boards and projectors in all classrooms, provided laptops for all teachers, implemented Google Apps for Education resources, computer-based reading improvement labs for students, increased bandwidth for video and Internet-based research, wireless Internet access in all media centers, teacher access to student folders on the network, and an integrated student information system for student records, grade books and records access for parents. BCS partners with other entities such as the StatesboroBulloch Parks and Recreation Department, the Averitt Center for the Arts, the Bulloch County Boys & Girls Club, the Bulloch County Extension Service, and Georgia Southern University to further the educational, recreational and fine arts opportunities for students. BCS partnered recently with the recreation department and the Bulloch County Commission to build the Mill Creek Tennis Center to serve not only the athletic needs of Statesboro High and Langston Chapel Middle but the community as well. The recreation department, the Averitt Center and the Boys & Girls Club all offer excellent afterschool programs for students. Though the student population is now over 10,000 and Bulloch County is the largest land-area county in Georgia, many of the schools still are centered around small, closeknit communities such as Stilson, Brooklet, Nevils and Portal. This helps bring a high level of parental, business and industry involvement to the schools.

Enrollment procedures Bulloch County offers parents who have children in grades kindergarten through 12th a variety of quality education options. Public, charter, private and homeschool options are available. Bulloch County Schools is the county’s public school system.

Georgia Southern


Statesboro is proud to be known as the home of the Georgia Southern Eagles. On game days, GSU flags wave from local businesses and vehicles. With six division I-AA National Championships, the Eagles are a legendary team worth watching. Former head coach Jeff Monken took last year’s team to the playoffs, the national semifinals, for the third year in a row. Turns, out 2012 was the last trip to the playoffs for GSU. The Eagles will join the Sun Belt Conference of the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) in 2014. That means 2013 closed the final chapter of GSU football in the Southern Conference. The Eagles went out with a bang, beating the Florida Gators 26-20 on Nov. 23, 2013. Eagle football games are exciting, and game day at Georgia Southern is an event worth attending. Students, alumni and families show their support across the community with flags and Eagle head logos dotting the landscape. Tailgating begins well before kickoff, and Allen E. Paulson Stadium roars with excitement as the Eagles take the field. Paulson Stadium has been renovated with a new upper deck and Football Operations Center, and new head coach Willie Fritz looks forward to ushering the Eagles into the Sun Belt and the FBS. Don’t miss a game this fall. For ticket information, go to

technical college The Georgia General Assembly approved the establishment of Ogeechee Technical Institute as a public, two-year technical institute under the supervision of the Department of Technical and Adult Education in 1986. Groundbreaking for the campus occurred two years later, and during the following year, Ogeechee Tech began offering its first credit program, practical nursing, with 25 students enrolled. Ogeechee Tech assumed the responsibility for offering adult literacy programs and administering the General Educational Development examination in 1989. Faculty and staff moved into the new 75,000-square-foot, $6 million state-of-the-art facility in fall of 1990, and additional program offerings began in spring quarter 1991. Ogeechee Tech graduated its first class of nine practical nursing students in December 1990. The opening of Ogeechee Tech coincided with the explosive growth of Georgia Southern University and the Statesboro area. In addition, the establishment of the Georgia Lottery-funded Helping Outstanding Pupils Educationally, or HOPE, financial aid program in 1993 was a contributing factor in the unprecedented growth of Ogeechee Tech. In 1998, DTAE renamed the Commissioner’s Award of Excellence the Rick Perkins Award for Excellence in Technical Instruction in memory and honor of the 1996 Commissioner’s Award of Excellence winner, Thomas Rick Perkins, from Carroll Technical Institute. The award recognizes instructors who make significant contributions to technical education through instructional excellence, outstanding leadership qualities and dedication to DTAE’s mission. In 1999, John Groover represented Ogeechee Tech as the winner of the Rick Perkins Award for Excellence in Technical Instruction for the state of Georgia. Ogeechee Tech experienced a $5.5 million expansion by adding three buildings — a Health Sciences Building, a Child Enrichment Center and a Horticulture Building in 1999. During this time, Ogeechee Tech also increased its services through the opening of the Screven County Learning Center in Sylvania, Ga. Ogeechee Tech offered its first Associate of Applied Technology degree program in industrial manufacturing technology in winter quarter 2000, with eight students enrolled, and in the following academic year offered AAT degrees in accounting, computer informa26 • Bulloch County Guide 2014

tion systems, early childhood care and education, funeral service education, health information technology, healthcare management technology, marketing management, opticianry and secretarial science. House Bill 1187, known as the A+ Education Reform Act, enacted in 2000, changed the names of technical institutes in Georgia to technical colleges. On July 6 of that year, Ogeechee Tech officially became Ogeechee Technical College. OTC awarded its


technical college first AAT degree in December 2000 in early childhood care and education. During summer 2002, Ogeechee Tech opened the Evans County Learning Center. Student growth continued over the years at OTC largely because of the addition of new programs, many of which are unique to the Department of Technical and Adult Education, the state and the region. These distinctive programs included certificates, diplomas and degrees in technical areas such as funeral service education, forensic science technology and opticianry. With the opening of the Occupational Studies Building in fall 2003, a wider variety of programs, such as agribusiness, wildlife and plantation management, Geographical Information Systems Technology, veterinary technology, culinary arts and hotel, restaurant and tourism management, enabled the college to further expand its offerings. In 2004, OTC paid tribute to the late Sen. Joseph E. Kennedy for his role in the establishment of Ogeechee Tech by dedicating the main building on campus as the Joseph E. Kennedy Building. During the summer of 2007, Ogeechee Tech moved the adult education program to the Bulloch County Workforce Development Center in downtown Statesboro. On May 13, 2008, Gov. Sonny Perdue signed legislation that officially changed the name of the Department of Technical and Adult Education. Effective July 1, 2008, the system became known as the Technical College System of Georgia. Perdue also served as the keynote speaker for the 2008 Spring Commencement at OTC. Shortly thereafter, Laura “Molly” Bickerton, a student in the college’s radiologic technology program, was selected as Georgia’s technical college Student of the Year in the 37th annual Georgia Occupational Award of Leadership competition. In July 2008, OTC was awarded a Regional Law Enforcement Academy in Claxton, Ga. The project, which involved five other technical colleges, allowed new law enforcement officers to receive their basic law enforcement training at a state technical college and obtain college credit at the same time. Nearby, in Hagan, Ga., OTC began construction of the Evans Technical Education Complex. The new complex included the Logistics and Public Safety Building, the Commercial Trucking Preventive Maintenance facility, a driving track for the commercial trucking program and an emergency vehicle operators track for the

Regional Law Enforcement Academy. Toward the end of 2008, amid a downturn in the economy, a reduction in state funds and rising gas prices, OTC joined other technical colleges in the state to institute a four-day work week. The move reduced the cost of utilities without reducing any services to students. Another big change came at the beginning of 2009 when an Emergency Mass Notification System for faculty, staff and students was implemented. The new OTC-Alert system provided a way to send emergency warnings via cellphone and email messages. Despite a challenging economy, good things continued to happen at Ogeechee Tech. Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel was the keynote speaker at the 2009 commencement exercises and, in an effort to offer better services to the students, Ogeechee Tech moved the adult education program to a new location adjacent to the main campus. In fall 2010, Perdue returned to campus to speak at a ceremonial groundbreaking for the new Health Science Building-North. In 2011, amid changes to the HOPE Scholarship, transitioning from quarters to semesters, moving to a tobacco-free campus and challenging economic times, Ogeechee Tech once again celebrated having the Technical College System of Georgia’s star student, as local GOAL winner Alvie Coes III, a funeral service education student, was named the state GOAL winner. Another accolade was announced when OTC was named the 2011 Technical College of the Year for the State of Georgia. The award is determined by meeting benchmarks in a variety of critical areas, and Ogeechee Tech earned the top spot over all the other colleges in the state system. A continuing effort to provide new and needed programs of study keeps Ogeechee Tech in the forefront of meeting the educational demands of citizens in this part of Georgia. Enrollment growth of 10.3 percent from 2010 to 2011 and 4,470 students attending classes have proved repeatedly that the demand for Ogeechee Tech’s services is stronger than ever. With credit programs, continuing education, GED and literacy programs and various other services, the college’s commitment to meet the needs of the region continues. In response to enrollment growth and program needs, the college began classes in the new state-ofthe-art Health Science-North Building in January 2013.

Real Estate

in bulloch county

Finding the Right Agent For many people, buying or selling a home is the biggest purchase or sale they will ever make. It’s no surprise, then, that most choose to involve a real estate agent in the process. With such important decisions at hand, it helps to involve a professional with experience in buying and selling homes. But with so many agents out there, it’s not always easy choosing the right one. So, how to decide? The process often depends on the individuals doing the buying or selling.

Do you really need a broker? Yes. Real estate agents work on commissions, which are typically in the neighborhood of 5 percent. If you’re selling your home for $300,000, the standard commission would be $15,000 on that sale. Naturally, a person looking to save money might be apprehensive about the commission. But ultimately, a real estate agent can help you save money in the long run. Agents have an intimate knowledge of the market and the industry. They also know your competition, the going prices in neighborhoods and the intricacies of the home-selling process. By putting a qualified agent on your team, in addition to doing your own research through the local newspaper’s real estate section, you could get more money for your house.

How do you know if you’ve found the right agent? If you’ve decided to enlist the services of an agent but don’t have one yet, finding the right one takes a little work. • Flexibility: As mentioned, involving an agent will mean you’ll have to pay a commission. A commission should always be flexible. A fixed commission isn’t legal, so if the agent says all homes sold net a 5 percent commission, tell him or her you know otherwise, and look for another agent. In general, the more expensive an area is to live, the less the commission will be. More expensive neighborhoods should result in lower commissions, while less expensive areas will more than likely lean toward a higher commission. • Reputation: Lots of people like to move closer to friends and family. Ask friends and family if they can recommend a real estate agent. If they can, this can be a quick way to find one, though it should be noted that 32 • Bulloch County Guide 2014

you’ll benefit if you make yourself the center of a competition between agents. (You’re more likely to lower the commission if you do.) Obviously, avoid those who have negative reputations. • Experience: How much experience an agent has is very important. Ideally, you’d like one who is established in the area where you want to live. Such an agent will have an extensive knowledge of the neighborhoods, knowing the pricing history of homes bought and sold and likely what life is like in the neighborhood. Ask for a recent transaction history of homes they’ve sold. Additionally, check with the local government to see if any complaints have been filed in recent years. • Trust your gut: Always be wary of agents who are trying to make a home into something it’s not. If he or she is rambling on and on about renovating a home, the home’s probably not a worthwhile investment. A real estate agent shouldn’t have to sell you on a home, but rather help you find the right one.

What is a Realtor? Not all real estate agents are Realtors. Realtor is a registered collective membership mark that identifies a real estate professional who is a member of the National Association of Realtors and subscribes to its strict Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice. A Realtor may be able to provide you a different level of service. Go to for more information.

Georgia southern cultural attractions Museum Packed with fun, the Georgia Southern Museum offers visitors a chance to learn more about this unique region of Georgia, the Coastal Plain. The museum’s collections and exhibits tell the story of evolving environments, animals, and cultures that have called it home over the past 100 million years. Located on Sweetheart Circle on the GSU campus, the museum is one of only 14 museums in Georgia to be accredited by the American Alliance of Museums. “We present a variety of changing exhibits throughout the year in the museum and at locations around campus and in town,” said museum director Brent Tharp. “Our changing presentations feature dynamic and interactive exhibits based on the work and research of our faculty and students. These exhibits bring the world to our visitors and encompass opportunities for them to learn about history, archaeology, science, business, health or any number of fascinating subjects. Additionally, the rediscovery of the incredibly well preserved Confederate Prisoner of War camp, Camp Lawton, by Georgia Southern University archaeology students is uncovering a history thought lost.” The museum offers programs to appeal to children, adults, families and teachers with hands-on programs for K-12 school groups. The activities allow children to explore the museum’s natural and cultural history collection and changing exhibits. Admission is $2 per person, and free for children 3 and younger. Museum members and Georgia Southern students are admitted at no charge. On the last Saturday of each month, entrance is free for all visitors. Permanent exhibits take you back 100 million years to a time when mosasaurs, large marine reptiles, prowled the oceans that covered most of southern Georgia. Children can crawl under the mosasaur and look through a viewing bubble right into the middle of the rib cage.

The museum is also home to the Georgiacetus vogtlensis, one of the oldest and most primitive ancient whales discovered in North America. The 40-million-year-old Vogtle Whale was excavated from Burke County, Georgia. For more information, visit the museum’s website at

Kiwanis Rodeo “It’s bulls and blood, it’s dust and mud, it’s the roar of the hungry crowd. The white in the knuckles, the gold in the buckles, the win the next go round….” Garth Brooks knew what he was talking about. The first Kiwanis Rodeo took place in April 2010. The event was a complete success with sellout crowds the entire weekend. The now-annual spring event features bronc busting, barrel racing, bull riding and more. Rodeo clowns entice the crowd to roar with laughter and vendors serve up hot, tasty food as well as offer hats, belts and other Western accessories. The International Professional Rodeo-sanctioned event welcomes cowboys and cowgirls from all over the world, including Brazil and Canada. Look for the next Kiwanis Rodeo in spring 2015.

Brooklet Peanut Festival Each August, the town of Brooklet goes a little nuts. Why? The peanut harvest is in. On Saturday, August 16, 2014, it’ll be worth your while to take a 10-minute ride down U.S. Highway 80 East to enjoy the annual Peanut Festival. Beginning with a morning parade, the celebration includes a street dance, a slow tractor race and a kiddie pedal tractor race. The focus is on peanuts, of course, but this celebration of agriculture brings fun and frolic to the community. Peanuts can be had in any way imaginable, including in baked goods, boiled, roasted or fried. Vendors hawk their wares, including a variety of foods, toys, jewelry and novelty items, while various musical groups and soloists entertain the crowd. Cloggers and other performers provide amusement as well, and many folks come to the festival just for the slow tractor race. This “race” is more of a display, with antique tractor lovers competing to see just how slow they can go without their ancient treasures shutting down. The night ends with a street dance for all ages.

The stockades and guard towers have been replaced with beautiful scenery, but visitors still can see the earthen breastworks and imagine the prison site. The natural springs produce 7 million gallons of water daily, and visitors can enjoy the view from several wooden platforms stretched across the pools. Storyboards scattered around provide historical and educational information about the springs. A wooden bridge carries visitors across the water, providing a bird’s-eye view of local wildlife, and leads to a freshwater aquarium featuring native species of fish.

Hunting and Fishing

Area Golf Courses

Fishing enthusiasts think they are in paradise when looking for a fishing hole in Bulloch County. Anyone with a fishing license can fish legally along the banks of public rivers or tributaries such as the Ogeechee River, Mill Creek, Little Lotts Creek, Upper Lotts Creek and Lower Lotts Creek. Put a boat in at one of the Ogeechee River’s many landings and enjoy the scenery as you fish. Just make sure you aren’t on private property. Bulloch has many lakes and ponds, and many owners will give permission to fish — as long as you ask first and respect the land. Lake Collins, also known as DeLoach’s Lake, is west of Portal and borders Candler County. The blackwater lake is fed by a creek and is home to otter, beaver, alligators and more. The lake is privately owned, but land owners and guests have fishing rights. Cypress Lake, in Southern Bulloch County near Register offers picturesque scenery, plenty of water and pole-bending fish — but most of the lake is private property. Oglesby’s Pond feeds Lake Collins, northeast of Portal. Another popular fishing spot is Simmons Pond off GA Hwy. 46 in the Nevils-Bay Gall area. Fishing rights memberships are available here. Bulloch County is full of wildlife, but written permission from a landowner must be obtained prior to hunting on private property. Nearby state-owned wildlife management areas such as Tuckahoe in Screven County offer hunting to licensed citizens. Hunting & fishing licenses are available at several local retailers county-wide.

If golf is your game, you have some options to choose from locally. Smithfield Golf Club, located on Highway 46 near the intersection of Old Register Road, boasts an 18-hole course, a pro shop for your golfing needs, a driving range and a practice green. The private course at Forest Heights Country Club on Country Club Road has an 18-hole course, pro shop, driving range and a practice green. It’s also the home of the Schenkel Invitational, one of college golf’s premier events. Georgia Southern Golf Course opened to the public in 2013. It’s located off of Golf Club Road about five miles outside of Statesboro. Students can schedule a tee time using their Eagle ID. Hackers Golf Park, ranked as one of the nation’s top 100 driving ranges, has a little bit of everything, including a lighted driving range, practice green and pro shop as well as a fun miniature golf course. If golf’s not your thing, grab a helmet and take a whack in the batting cages. It’s at Old Register Road just off the Highway 301 bypass.

Willie McTell Trail

S&S Greenway

The Willie McTell Trail is one of the nicest paths to walk, jog or bike along in Statesboro and is a convenient way to get from downtown to the Georgia Southern campus. Just longer than a mile, the trail stretches from Triangle Park on East Main Street to the northeast corner of campus on Fair Road. The smooth, wide path is lighted, landscaped and offers bike racks at both ends. One of the most interesting aspects of the trail is the benches. Created by Georgia Southern students using metal, wood and other materials, these unique pieces fuse art with function. The trail is named for the legendary blues guitarist Blind Willie McTell. A Statesboro native probably best known for his song “Statesboro Blues,” McTell gained a reputation as one of the best blues artists in the country, even earning praise from Bob Dylan. Check out the trail for a nice stroll outdoors.

The Bulloch Greenway Partnership is committed to the development of a network of greenways that will provide Bulloch County residents with convenient access to opportunities for walking, jogging and biking. The partnership envisions a network of greenway trails connecting different areas of the community, educating residents about the environment and providing alternative transportation opportunities in Bulloch County. The first phase of the S&S Greenway is a newly constructed asphalt trail that connects Gentilly Road to Veterans Memorial Parkway near the Statesboro Crossing shopping center. Eventually, this trail will lead to Brooklet, a community approximately 10 miles from Statesboro. The Greenway Partnership members include the Bulloch Greenway Steering Committee, the StatesboroBulloch County Parks & Recreation Department, Georgia Southern University and area government agencies and businesses.

For over seventeen years I have struggled with my weight. I would just stand in front of the mirror and ask myself how I let my weight get so far out of control. Often I wondered if I was an embarrassment to my boys. After developing elevated blood sugars and high blood pressure, I knew I had to do something if I was going to be around to see my boys grow up and have families of their own. After trying many diets with no success, I was at the point of just giving up. When I found out Dr. Hiller was opening a Medi-Weightloss Clinic, and he explained how the program worked I was ready to make a lifestyle change. I was determined to do it and having his support only made it easier. After losing 11 pounds my first week, I knew this was going to be the program for me. In the first month I had lost 25 pounds, had more energy, and was able to do daily activities without exhaustion. Now after having been on the program for 7 months I have lost 102 pounds!!!!! I feel better than I have since before the birth of my first son. I am totally loving myself again!! - WENDY Statesboro, Georgia

Over the years I have tried several diets and programs in hopes of overcoming my battle with my weight. Up until now, I haven’t been able to find what truly works for me. I had the opportunity to see first hand the amazing results of the Medi-Weightloss program when a friend of mine began the program. After months of watching her lose weight, I decided to make an appointment. I began the program and followed the guidelines given to me. During the second week I began exercising. By the end of my first month on the program I had lost 23.5 pounds. I was so excited and encouraged to continue. Each week the weight loss kept adding up and I was feeling and looking better and better. I have just completed week 28 on the program and I have lost 93.5 pounds. The results I have received from this program have greatly exceeded what I thought I was capable of accomplishing. - VIRGINIA Statesboro, Georgia

Statesboro hospital

East Georgia Regional Medical Center Built in July 2000, East Georgia Regional Medical Center is a four-level, 149-bed, acute-care hospital featuring a Women’s Pavilion, an adjacent medical office building and an outpatient diagnostic imaging center. The hospital is accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, a distinction awarded only to those healthcare facilities that maintain the highest standards of quality. It recently was named to the Georgia Hospital Association’s Partnership for Health and Accountability Core Measures Honor Roll. East Georgia Regional Medical Center’s health care team consists of approximately 650 employees and over 100 physicians representing a wide range of specialties. The expansion of medical services and professionals, along with a major investment in technology, has firmly established EGRMC’s reputation for providing a higher medical standard. The medical center offers a 24-hour physician-staffed emergency department, a Level II neonatal center, outpatient services including same-day surgery and ambulatory care, a sleep center, a pain management center, a wound care clinic, a cardiac catheterization lab, inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation (PT, OT and ST) and state-ofthe-art diagnostic imaging equipment including a new 64-slice low-dose CT machine and a new 3D digital mammography machine. EGRMC also recently updated • Ambulatory Care • Anesthesiology • Breast Surgery • Cardiology • Community Education • DaVinci Robotic Surgery • Diagnostic & Interventional Radiology • Emergency Medicine • Electrophysiology • Gastroenterology • General Surgery • Internal Medicine

its interventional radiology/vascular suite to top-of-theline equipment. The hospital is also home to the only robotic surgical system in the area, which allows faster and less painful recovery time for qualifying patients. In spring 2010, East Georgia Regional expanded its service line to include Interventional Cardiology. The expansion of the Cardiology program has allowed patients needing Angioplasty and/or stent placement to receive the highest quality care without leaving Statesboro. Each month, the Surgical Services department performs more than 1,000 surgeries, and the Emergency Department treats more than 3,300 patients. The Women’s Pavilion provides dedicated services to women of all ages and includes eight delivery rooms and 21 private recovery suites. More than 120 babies are born in the Women’s Pavilion each month. In 2013, the Georgia Southern Athletic Foundation joined the hospital to supply all babies born at the Women’s Pavilion with a Georgia Southern University blanket.

Agriculture is business

For the Andersons, Farming is Life Farming isn’t just a profession, but a lifestyle that involves more than just one person; it is a family affair that takes the whole family unit to be successful. Will Anderson and his family know this, and their efforts as a longtime farming family in the Nevils community led to their being named the 2013 Farm Family of the Year. The honor was awarded by the StatesboroBulloch County Chamber of Commerce’s Agribusiness Committee in November during its Farm City Week celebration. Anderson grew up farming with his father, Tommy Anderson, and still today, his brother Reid helps Will with his farm as well as works his own. They are sixth-generation farmers growing cotton, soybeans, corn and wheat. They also operate broiler houses for Claxton Poultry. Will Anderson, who has been married to Hannah Anderson for 11 years, is a deacon at Gracewood Baptist Church and a trustee for the Georgia Baptist Children’s Home. The couple have three children. “This is an honor to get this award,” Anderson said during the Farm City luncheon as he spoke to a crowded room. Afterward, he said he already knew he would get into farming, but when his father’s health demanded help, he took over. “I kind of knew I had to come onto the farm or something would happen to it,” he said. “I wanted to do that, anyway.” So, why does he farm? According to Anderson, it’s the variety. “You get to experience all kinds of things, and Daddy let us learn by experiencing,” he said. The work is always challenging and constantly changing. “You get to kind of have a do-over every year,” he said. Anderson loves being outside and likes that “every day is diversified” and that he can “micromanage” his crops, he admitted. Hannah Anderson has an accounting degree, which likely helps in the business, but after the birth of their first child, the couple agreed she would stay home. “I try to be supportive,” she said. “This is different

from a 9-to-5 job. Sometimes Will gets home by 9 or as late as 11 p.m.” Keeping up with Avery, 9; Avant, 8; and Ava, 5, is a full-time job, but Hannah enjoys being a wife and mother, especially when it comes to mealtime. “I like to cook,” she said. “If (Will) is close by, he comes home for lunch, but if he is picking cotton, it is a pack of crackers.” Her daughter Ava isn’t yet involved in the family farm operation, preferring girly things and dreaming of being a mommy one day, and son Avery enjoys hunting, fishing and sports. Will Anderson said he enjoys those Bulloch County Guide 2014 • 75

activities with his son, but middle son Avant is the one with farming at heart. “He knows the make and model of every piece of equipment I have,” he said. “He is definitely the most involved,” Hannah Anderson said. “He loves it — he wants to know how all of it works.” Avant even helps out when it comes time to module cotton — with adult supervision, she said. The Anderson family exemplifies the teamwork and dedication that are requisites for the Farm Family of the Year award, Agribusiness Committee member Todd Faircloth said.

Farming in the South Agriculture is big business in Bulloch County, which is the No. 1 row-crop county in the state. The area offers many farming sectors, including livestock, berries, cotton, tobacco, corn, wheat and Southern pine.

Hearts and Hands Clinic In its fourth year of operation, the Hearts and Hands clinic continues to provide more services to low-income Bulloch County residents who lack adequate health insurance. After being founded in Son’s Light Fellowship Baptist Church on U.S. Highway 301 South, it moved to its own space, a building at 127 North College Street in downtown Statesboro. Hearts and Hands provides basic health screenings and dental services for people in need of serious work. And, thanks to a grant it received from Susan G. Komen for the Cure Coastal Georgia, the clinic now can provide mammograms. Komen Coastal Georgia is based in Savannah and serves nine counties, including Bulloch, Bryan and Effingham. Bulloch County had the second-highest mortality rate attributed to cancer between 2003 and 2007 in the agency’s service area, according to data compiled by the state in 2010. Between 2003 and 2007, 36 women died of cancer, and 155 cases were diagnosed. For more information about Hearts and Hands, and to volunteer, call (912) 681-9519.

Open Hearts Community Mission The Open Hearts Community Mission enlisted the help of Georgia Southern University students last year to design a homeless shelter. The students in Chris Johnson’s senior-level interior design class presented their ideas to Open Hearts Director Delia Mobley as part of a semester-long 82 • Bulloch County Guide 2014

project to help the charity. The plan is to build the shelter on Martin Luther King Jr. Drive. The building would be more than 4,000 square feet and have men’s and women’s wings, with 20 beds on each side, along with family rooms, offices, multipurpose rooms for activities and classes and an apartment for staff. Open Hearts also raised $25,000 for the mission with the second annual Chocolate Run 5K in downtown Statesboro in February 2014. The race was a resounding success, despite chilly weather, as it drew the largest crowd of any race in the Boro and was the largest local fundraiser for a local charity ever. As an incentive, race participants were given hot chocolate, chocolate chip cookies and several other forms of chocolate. Look for a third Chocolate Run 5K next spring.

Adopt a Homeless Pet Bulloch County Animal Shelter Hundreds of animals needing good homes are brought to the Bulloch County Animal Shelter each year. They are available for adoption for a small fee and the cost of a rabies shot and spay or neutering. The shelter is located just off U.S. Highway 301 North and is open Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10–5 p.m. and Tuesday and Friday from noon–5 p.m.

The Humane Society The Humane Society is a nonprofit charitable animal welfare organization with a goal to end the need for euthanasia of healthy, adoptable animals in Bulloch County. The Humane Society of Statesboro and Bulloch County meets on the first Monday of the month at 7 p.m. at St. Matthew’s Roman Catholic Church on Gentilly Road.

Augusta, Georgia Augusta was named in honor of Augusta, Princess of Wales, daughter-in-law of King George II of Great Britain and mother of King George III of Great Britain, and was the second state capital of Georgia from 1785 until 1795 (alternating for a period with Savannah, the first. Augusta is located on the Georgia/South Carolina border, about 150 miles east of Atlanta. It is the secondlargest city and second largest metropolitan area in the state. Augusta is the birthplace of the Southern Baptist denomination, and the location of Springfield Baptist Church, the oldest autonomous African-American Baptist church in the nation. Morehouse College was founded in the basement of the church. AfricanAmerican history is honored at the Lucy Craft Laney museum. Various religious denominations have erected churches in downtown Augusta that are now historical landmarks such as Saint Paul’s Church and Sacred Heart Cultural Center. Built in 1914, the Butt Memorial Bridge was placed in memory of Archibald Butt. It was the first memorial in the world to the RMS Titanic, and is the only such memorial in Georgia. Augusta’s official nickname is The Garden City. It is also known as Masters City, because it plays host to the Masters Golf Tournament. In hip-hop circles, the city is referred to as “The A.U.G.” The city adopted the motto, “We Feel Good,” in recognition of native son and soul music legend James Brown. The city also dedicated a statue to James Brown, which is located downtown at the Augusta Common. Augusta also has a well-established arts community. Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art, Morris Museum of Art, Artists Row and the Art Council are just a few in the art community. The Augusta Symphony, Augusta Choral Society, Augusta Players and the Augusta Ballet also perform for audiences. Each fall, the city hosts the Arts in the Heart of Augusta Festival downtown and Westobou Festival — two major arts showcases. Augusta’s downtown culture has also blossomed in the past decade, allowing many new businesses to open and flourish within the city. Broad Street in downtown Augusta is host to many different bars and music clubs that have enjoyed a period of prosperity since the institution of First Friday, which is celebrated on the first Friday night of each month. The atmosphere is carnival-

Visitors can walk along the Savannah River on the Augusta Riverwalk in downtown. The Augusta Marina rents boats for a fun day on the river, and tourists can ride along the Augusta Canal, which was built in 1845 as a power source, in a Petersburg boat.

It adopted its present name in 1783. The population was estimated to be 120,083 in 2010, making it the second most populous city in South Carolina, closely behind the state capital, Columbia. Charleston annually hosts Spoleto Festival USA, a 17-day art festival featuring over 100 performances by individual artists in a variety of disciplines. Charleston’s “other” festival is the MOJA Arts Festival, which is a major, two-week celebration of African-American and Caribbean arts, music and culture. The Southeastern Wildlife Exposition also is held in the city, as well as the Food + Wine Festival, Family Circle Tennis Cup, Cooper River Bridge Run and the Maritime Festival, which is held annually in May and features tall ships, boatbuilding and the Charleston to Bermuda Race. In 2007, Charleston Fashion Week made its first appearance and was a huge success. It is held by the fashion publication Charleston Magazine and is an annual event in the city. It is like most of the major fashion weeks in other major cities. As an old, colonial city, Charleston has a wide variety of museums and historical attractions. The Old Exchange and Customs House in downtown Charleston, finished in 1771, is arguably the third most important Colonial building in the nation (behind Faneuil Hall in Boston and Independence Hall in Philadelphia). The building features a dungeon that held various signers of the Declaration of Independence and hosted events for George Washington in 1791 and the ratification of the U.S. Constitution in 1788. It also has served as a U.S. post office, the first Confederate post office, and was used by the United States Coast Guard. Not far from Charleston is Fort Moultrie, which was instrumental in delivering a critical defeat to the British in the American Revolutionary War, and Fort Sumter, the reputed site of the “first shot” of the American Civil War. Patriots Point, located across the river in nearby Mount Pleasant, is also home to the aircraft carrier USS Yorktown as well as several other naval vessels. There are also several former plantations in the area, including 90 • Bulloch County Guide 2014

Boone Hall Plantation, Drayton Hall, Magnolia Plantation and Middleton Place. The Charleston Tea Plantation is located just south of the city on Wadmalaw Island and is a true working tea farm. Charleston’s premier art museum is the Gibbes Museum of Art, one of the country’s oldest art organizations and home to over 10,000 works of fine art. Also the Charleston Museum was the first museum in the Americas. Other attractions include the South Carolina Aquarium, the Audubon Swamp Garden, Cypress Gardens and Charles Towne Landing.
