How the state title was won

The Social Circle High School wrestling team won the 2-AA GHSATeam Dual Championship last Saturday at the Macon Centreplex. The Redskins won in exciting fashion over Bremen 35 to 31 to take the state title for the first time in school history. The SCHS team bus was escorted into town after the victory by the Social Circle City Police at around 8:00 p.m. Saturday night with flashing blue lights and sirens where a crowd of 200-300 residents cheered on the team as traffic was blocked by a Social Circle City fire truck.

Believing in public education

The sneaky thief of sight

I have to admit something: I grew up in an era that made fun of kids with glasses. Especially big, thick ones. Now these thick, dark frames are all the rage. So the last time I went to the eye doctor, I had a hard time picking out frames because all I saw were big, thick, dark frames, until I found these lovely red ones (yes red!).

Pancake Day(?)

Most people may see pancakes as a delicious flat cake that we devour with some syrup, but did you know that it has some religious significance to it? Shrove Tuesday, or known as Pancake Day, uses pancakes to celebrate the last day of Carnival, Mardi Gras and preceding Lent. Pancakes are usually associated with Shrove Tuesday because it was a way for people to give up certain foods like eggs, milk, flour and sugar for Lent.

Beating the winter blues

The sun will rise at 7:41 a.m. on Monday. And it will set at 5:46 a.m. that same day. That means that we will have 10 hours of daylight on Monday. We have already passed the shortest day of the year – the winter solstice was on December 21. With the recent grey and rainy weather of the past couple weeks, it may seem like these are all short days of daylight, if we even see the sun at all. I recently was asked by a friend if London had relocated to Covington. I then had to ...
