National attention for Stillmore

It's not every day -- in fact, it's hardly ever -- that national press exposure comes to tiny Stillmore, Ga., a little town way down on the southern end of Emanuel County and not far from where my grandmother's family is from in Oak Park. But the town has come to a virtual standstill following illegal-immigrant roundups, and an Associated Press story on that situation has gotten national coverage. Google News says that as of this morning, the story was in the online editions of the Boston Globe, Fox News, and both Seattle daily papers.

Interesting fact: My father has always told me that Stillmore's claim to fame was that there was a railroad roundhouse there.
