Guaranteed to tell you something you didn't know yesterday.
Good morning, Lilburn. It's Monday, July 25. This summer is flying by, isn't it? 1. Two Weeks To Go: Gwinnett County Public Schools opens for the 2010 school year two weeks from today, on Monday, Aug. 8. If you’re a student, you’ve got 14 days to get to all that summer fun you thought you had more time to have. If you’re a commuter, you have the same amount of time to figure out how to get to work once the roads are filled with frequent bus stops and backups in front of schools. Here’s some things to consider: Gwinnett County buses pick up and drop off 120,662 students per day, making the system the second-largest transporter of students in the country. School buses travel 130,800 miles and makes 47,267 stops per day. 2. Gas-tronomic …

A few weeks ago my Dad, who is a History professor at Austin Peay University, asked me what Lilburn was doing to commemorate the Sesquicentennial (150th anniversary) of the Civil War. I honestly didn’t even know how to spell sesquicentennial at the time, but within a few days learned that many cities around the South are reenacting key battles of the Civil War in commemoration of the event. Many of these reenactments are quite elaborate and are scheduled to take place throughout this year at various locations below the Mason-Dixon line. Given that Lilburn is only 100 years old, (remember, we celebrated the centennial birthday last year and buried a time capsule?) was there even any activity in the area 150 years ago worthy of mention?

Lilburn commemorates centennial with collections for time capsule.
Lilburn resident Donald Sequeira says that when the call went out for volunteers to be on the Centennial Committee for Lilburn's big 100th anniversary celebration, he was ready to get involved. He thought that as a member of the committee, he could be a part of history. "To complete 100 years is a great thing for any city," says Sequeira, who has been involved in much of the anniversary planning, including a time capsule that will be buried with items from the city's history. He is looking forward to burying the capsule this Saturday, Dec. 4, during the city's weekend of Christmas celebrations. "Our grandchildren's children will get to see it and it has been a great way to meet people I might not have otherwise." Sequeira isn't the only …
