Early voting for the July 22 primary runoff is under way, though there will be no Saturday voting this time around. Early voting will take place until July 18 at the board of elections and registration office, 284 Highway 119 South in Springfield. The old Marlow Elementary School, which was in use for general primary early voting, is not open for the runoff elections.

If you voted in the Republican primary, you can vote in the Republican runoff. That means you can vote in the Senate runoff between Jack Kingston and David Perdue, and if you are in the 1st Congressional District — which is the southern portion of the county — you can vote in the GOP runoff between Buddy Carter and Bob Johnson.

There is also a Republican runoff in state school superintendent between Mike Buck and Richard Woods.

There are two runoffs on the Democratic side for Effingham voters, also for state school superintendent and the 1st Congressional District representative. If you voted in the Democratic primary, you can vote in the runoff. The state school superintendent candidates are Alisha Thomas Morgan and Valarie Wilson. The 1st District Congressional race is between Brian Reese and Amy Tavio, who finished 26 votes apart.

I had the opportunity in the last few days to travel the new and final section of the Truman Parkway in Savannah, and it is superb. You have to get a little used to its terminus at Abercorn but it is a great way to get from the southside to ...

Following a tangent's end
June 27, 2014
A call earlier this week from a reporter at another paper got me to thinking about a case that didn’t happen here but had some connection to the community. The call was about an accused couple who may have connections to here. So I asked about another case — the ...

The trouble with snakes
June 13, 2014
There’s nothing like the text message late in the evening to be careful coming home — since there is, to quote, “a fat snake” on the carport. What kind of “fat” snake?, I asked. No one was sure. As it turned out, further investigation revealed that it did not have ...
