A 70-year-old Sea Island woman was in stable condition Monday after being hit Sunday by a stray bullet while on the course at Ocean Forest Golf Club.
Prendergrast was immediately airlifted to Shands Jacksonville Medical Center where she underwent surgery and remained in the intensive care unit Monday, according to Glynn County Police Chief Matt Doering.
Edward George Johnson, 65, of Sea Island, called 911 and told dispatchers he accidentally shot someone while firing at squirrels in the yard at 496 Forest Road on Sea Island.
Johnson has been charged with one misdemeanor count of reckless conduct.
Doering said the incident offers a good example why guns should not be fired in residential areas.
College of Coastal Georgia has added another link in its partnership with the Jekyll Island Authority - one that will benefit more than just the two partners involved.
The restaurant operated as Blackbeard's before the name changed to Fins.
College of Coastal Georgia President Valerie Hepburn addressed the board of the Jekyll Island Authority, which approved the concept, during its meeting Monday on Jekyll.
"We have, at Coastal, the only American Culinary Federation accredited program in higher education in the whole state," Hepburn said. "We've always had a tie with Jekyll (Island), so when (JIA Executive Director) Jones (Hooks) came and presented this idea, it really resonated."
Hooks proposed the entrepreneurial idea in August 2012 to Hepburn, and the two entities have been working together to make it happen ever since.
