Milledgeville man wins state award

A Milledgeville man won the state's Brother of the Year award and is now in the running for the top national honor, which will be announced later this month.

Big Brothers Big Sisters is a national mentoring organization for young children.

"I am ecstatic," LaVance Hurt said. "I'm very honored, but I am a humble man."

Hurt joined the Big Brothers, Big Sisters of the Heart of Georgia three years ago.

That's when he was paired with his little brother, Rubin "RJ" Pyatt, now 13.

"When I mentor, I don't feel like it's a job or a duty. I feel that it's a calling. It's something that I should do," Hurt said.

Hurt says during his own childhood, he was in and out of juvenile centers.

But with the right guidance, he says he was able to turn his life around and get a nursing degree.

GCSU raises awareness on sexualt assault

Dozens of students gathered at Georgia College and State University to support victims of sexual assault.

The college's Women Center hosted what they call a survivor speakout called "Take Back the Night."

It happened on the school's Old Courthouse Lawn Thursday night.

Survivors shared their stories and how they've recovered.

They also gave advice to their peers.

The speakout ended with a candlelight vigil to celebrate the survivors gaining strength by sharing their struggle.

"You're not gonna get anything more real than a survivor themselves standing up there, see the tears being shed from their eyes," said Kathryn Tapp, a student at the college, "Finding out what happened to them...it brings a certain sense of realness that other seminars aren't going to provide for you."

The violets in the mountains have broken the rocks.- Tennessee Williams

I used to work in downtown Boston, all bricks, stone, concrete and glass. The view out my 7th floor office window was more bricks, stone, concrete and glass, and yes a bridge and the sky and if I craned my neck...Boston Harbor. What seemed like the same old starlings hung out on the fire escape just outside my window. One day I looked out at the very moment a hawk flew down and grabbed a bird and in a flurry of feet and feathers, off they went, bird and prey. This scene of course happens daily but the urban setting somehow drew a big line for me around 'nature' as opposed to man's constructed city. It was a poetic reminder that nature is surprising and beautiful and strong and trumps anything we might fancy as solid or permanent... Read More

Chick-fil-A wings in new direction

Chick-fil-A wings in new direction

Bruce Horovitz, USA TODAY

ATLANTA — Chick-fil-A is finally crossing the road.

The iconic chicken chain, as well-known for its conservative heritage as its savory eats, is recalibrating its moral and culinary compass. It wants to go from old school to almost cool. It wants to evolve from a place where gays once picketed to a place where they'll feel comfortable going to eat. It wants to broaden the brand as it expands nationally and plows into the Millennial-driven urban arena. Above all: it wants to be a serious player on fast-food's biggest stage.
