Bulloch will keep high standards

If you are paying attention to the debate over the Common Core State Standards, you've probably thought, "let's wait and see what happens and go from there."

What if it rains on your vacation?

I remember when Julie told me about an incident which took place in one of her classes at Marshall. Someone in class mentioned, "Red sky in the morning, sailors take warning; red sky at night, sailor's delight." Julie said, "That's in the Bible."

Our View: Don't abandon Common Core

After approval last week by the Georgia Senate of a bill that would abandon the Common Core State Standards the state first adopted in 2010, state House members are now getting set to debate the bill that, if signed into law by Gov. Nathan Deal, would do serious harm to the public school education of children in our state.

It really does take 'a village'

There is an old proverb, "It takes a village to raise a child," which is as true today as when this saying was documented. Dr. Calvin Mackie, in his book, "A View From The Roof," writes about five gifts to give your children: the gift of love, the gift of affection and touch, the gift of discipline, the gift of integrity and the gift of purpose.

We are all part of God's plan

I happened to turn on the old TV to a movie entitled, "Bruce Almighty." Here's a young man in his 30s who seems to be the typical loser individual: less qualified folks get promoted over him; he can't keep a girlfriend; his dog doesn't know the difference between a fire hydrant and his favorite chair; nothing ever seems to work out and God obviously doesn't like him; he doesn't like God, and if he were God, the world would be so much better off.

Writing our own memorials

Last Friday, I said goodbye to Marty Hager for the last time. Julie and I sat on the front row of the church along with the rest of our family to let the reality of his death squeeze through the denial everyone faces at times like these.

Are there self-fulfilling prophecies?

When our family finally got settled in at my first church in Florida, I received a call to visit a young man recently incarcerated for auto theft. Back then, I could sit in a crowded room with him and a lot of other visitors and prisoners trying to communicate by almost shouting over the crowd noise. I asked him, "What happened?"

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Consequences do not work reliably with toddlers

Q: We are having a problem with our 32-month-old son. He picks his nose - most often in a public setting - and then proceeds to wipe it on other family members. It's disgusting.

Kathy Bradley - Chaos and comfort

The ice storm was upon us. The rain had been falling since the night before, and in the cold, cold air, the water had chosen not to drip from but cling to the branches and freeze. The power lines were drooping like the fluttering eyelids of a baby fighting sleep. It was time to get home.

An Easter feast of roasted lamb

Over two French doors in my kitchen hangs a sign that reads, "Good wine, good friends, good times." That couldn't have described the scene around my table more on the cool and rainy Tuesday night we had earlier this week. I'd invited a few of my closest friends to my early Easter feast, where we would dine on roasted lamb with mint chutney and farm-style side dishes hailing from the soil of Screven County.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Torturing animals raises suspicions of sociopathy

Q: My 18-year-old son and a slightly younger friend recently found some mice and decided to dispose of them. They drowned one and set the other one on fire. When I confronted my son for torturing animals, his response was, "They're just mice." Is this typical boy behavior, or should I be concerned?

Slow down and enjoy the moment

Twenty-five years ago when Julie and I drove into Statesboro with the kids, we knew we had been blessed by God Who had brought us home. Strangers waved at us as we drove in, the streets were clean and there was little traffic up and down old two-lane Fair Road. I think there were only a few places to eat - mostly family style - and Georgia Southern College had perhaps 9,000 students.

Inside Bulloch Business with DeWayne Grice - Masters gives Statesboro hotels a nice 'bump'

Every now and then it is good to get out of the Boro and get a different perspective. One of my favorite places to get a feel of how the "ordinary Georgians" are doing is Bennie's Red Barn on St. Simons Island.

Tribute to a friend I met online

All too often, we hear horror stories about "meeting" people online. It's true that predators and crazy people use the Internet as a tool to take advantage of others, but if one uses common sense, the world of cyberspace can lead to true, real relationships.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Video games proving very problematic for teen boys

Q: Our 14-year-old son seems depressed - to us, at least. His principal sees no sign of depression but thinks he's socially anxious. The subjects of counseling and medication have come up. We have suggested to him that he get more exercise and spend less time playing video games and watching TV, but he says he hates sports. He appears to be withdrawing more and more into his video-screen world.

'Elijah' took me to Israel

It has been some 30 years since my brother-in-law and I stood on the top of Mount Carmel in northern Israel, the site of the remarkable biblical encounter between Elijah and the priests of Baal. We had talked about 1 Kings 17 the night before and when we realized that we were not bound to the travel itinerary and read about a side trip to Haifa - just a few miles from Mount Carmel - we jumped at the chance.

Guest column: Preventing cervical cancer

A cancer diagnosis, no matter the type, can be sobering for any patient. Cervical cancer in particular can be frightening for women with fears that the diagnosis eliminates their chance to have children, or worse. As a gynecological oncologist, helping women understand the importance of preventative care can mitigate many of the threats associated with cervical cancer.

The importance of teachers

Recently, I exited my editor's office to find a lady waiting to speak to me. I was quite flabbergasted when she told me I was a former student of her father's, and that he spoke of me often until his death earlier this year.
