I am very proud of Dr Hickman Principal of Burke County High School. His dedication the the Burke County Schools is parallel to none. When I met Dr Hickman in 2002 he was still Mr Hickman, and the Assistant Principal of Blakney Elementary. At that time I was the PTA President and Dr Hickmas was very helpful in assisting us to encourage more parents to be involved. From the Bronze Medal award that Burke Co High School has achieved, Dr Hickman's Deserves to be recognized has a unequaled Principal serving not only the needs of the students,  but also the staff that he has rallied and supported to strive every day to the their best for the Students of Burke County High School. Kudos to all of you! By Jonathan Davis  NBC Augusta Burke County Ga-“Validating in a lot of ways,” said Wayne Hick...

The September 2008 Waynesboro Farm Fest was great fun. The weather was beautiful, a perfect sunny day and a calm 79. There was great food, from Hamburgers, Hot dogs and Snow Cones. And of course there was Bar-B-Que cooked up by area locals, trying to earn a spot in the next Waynesboro Boss Hog Cook-Off.   We had a cricket spitin and pie eating contests (no they didn't spit the crickets in the pies) We were entertained by a great DJ and Cloggers, There were great games for the kids and Blow ups to jump and play on. Of course we can't leave out the Crafters and vendors sharing there wares.  Make an on-line slide show at www.OneTrueMedia.com

Restaurant  Review for Waynesboro Georgia, #1 Taylor's Barbecue located at 112 13th St Waynesboro Georgia 30830.   This is my absolute favorite restaurant in Waynesboro Georgia located in Burke county. Great Southern home cooking is what you get here!! My husband and I steal away for lunch when ever possible, of course we have taken all the kids too.  Feeding a family of 6 costs about $40.00. No one leaves hungry!! It is a buffet style restaurant where they dish out the food,  you tell them what you want and they PILE it on paper plates. I always ask to have it in a to-go box as I can never eat it all. They also have a full Grill menu to include everyone's favorites Hamburgers and French fries and of course more.   It was started in 1966 by Mrs. Frankie and her husband Ed, and was origi...
