    I've never heard of Liberty County. How far is it from Atlanta.

    Hinesville is south of Savannah, right? It's where Ft. Stewart is, which is a ghost town right now.

    Not quite a ghost town. All but a brigade (about 2,800 out of approx. 20,000 troops) has left and most of the families have stayed.
    You're less than an hour from Sav'h, 45 minutes from Statesboro, 45 minutes from St. Simons (!), hour and change from Hilton Head.
    I think it'll be predominantly preps (duh!), but you might be able to sneak away on a Saturday for Ga. Southern or maybe even Tech or UGa, if you're up for the drive.
    I don't know anything about the environment there (at the paper itself). But hey, from the looks of it, you're close to a lot of stuff.
