Kathy Bradley - Traffic signs

About halfway between the communities of Adabelle and Excelsior is a creek bridge. On the Bulloch County side of the bridge, the county-maintained highway is known as Adabelle Road. On the Candler County side, it is called Dutch Ford Road, though most of us who live nearby refer to it simply as the road to Excelsior. The two-lane highway, called by whatever nomenclature one chooses, has long been an obstacle course of potholes, wash-out and loose gravel. The fact that the population of deer in the neighborhood vastly outnumbers the population of people adds to the overall perilous nature of ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Parents should take time to nurture their marriage

"How can my spouse and I get on the same page where the kids are concerned?" is both the most difficult question parents ask me and the most important. It is the most difficult because each of the parents in question thinks the problem lies with the other, and as long as they cling to that security blanket, the problem cannot be solved. It is the most important question because the strength of a family, and therefore the well-being of its children, depends fundamentally on the parents being in a state of unity.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - Zucchini galore

I've often thought farmers and gardeners must be the most creative chefs. They constantly face the challenge of coming up with new ways to eat copious amounts of the season's harvest. Take a walk at our local farmers market or in any grocery store's produce department this time of year and you'll find zucchini in abundance. A green summer squash with mild flavor, zucchini is in season from May to October in Georgia.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Apostle Paul a model of commitment

In "Legacy of a Pack Rat," Ruth Bell Graham tells of a musician who lived in a land where "God's music" was not allowed to be played. Every day, he took out his copy of Handel's "Messiah" and placed it on the dining room table. Then, on the table, his fingers silently played through the entire score.

Kathy Bradley - Remembering moonlight

Sounding like Goethe on his deathbed, I handed the contractor the blueprints for what would become Sandhill and instructed, "Light, that's what I want - as much as possible."

Southeast Bulloch choral concert a delight

It was pure accident that I began singing in choral groups. In my first year of high school - we started in the tenth grade back then - I was taking art appreciation when a good friend said, "John! There's a bunch of kids singing upstairs. You like to sing and all you have to do is to sit, sing and get an "A!"

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - Entertain this summer with simple foods, big flavor

It may be springtime, but in true Statesboro fashion, we've already had several 90-degree days. When it's hot outside, I am much more inclined to eat lighter foods such as fresh fruit, green salads and grilled meats - partly because they're healthier options, but mostly because it's swimsuit season.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Do not allow fear to interfere with good parenting

Q: For the first five years of her life, it was just me and my now 13-year-old daughter. I didn't have a clue as to what I was doing. I wasn't consistent; I didn't hold her accountable; I was an enabler. Her behavior toward me became increasingly disrespectful. My second husband tried to open my eyes, but I was in complete denial.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - What did God have in mind for the family?

It has been suggested that God established three great "institutions" for our benefit - family, church and civil government. As he planned them, they are without any defects. When problems come, it is because of man's failings.

Remembering a wonderful mom

It's too bad that Mother's Day only comes once a year insofar as the holidays are concerned. I have a suggestion, but I'll save it for a bit later.

A view from the sidelines

As most of you know, my father, Wright McLeod, ran for Georgia's 12th Congressional District seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2012. My family and I walked away from the race disappointed, proud and much more informed about people, politics, and patriotism.

Kathy Bradley - Waiting for the fruit to ripen

For 14 years I have walked the circle drive at the Screven County Courthouse. At least once a month for 14 years, I have walked, heels clicking against the pavement, files tucked under my arm or stuffed into a rolling briefcase, toward the double-glass doors and the wide, tiled hallway that leads to the courtroom. As often as not, in warmer weather, I have walked to the tune of a mower moving back and forth over the front lawn like a metronome, breathing in the shaved grass along with the scent of the roses Mrs. Pullen planted at the front ...

Living with Children with John Rosemond - It's your child's homework, not yours

Q: I homeschooled my oldest, an 8-year-old boy, until this year. He started third grade in public school in August. As a homeschooling mom, I was not a micromanager and don't want to become one now, but the school virtually insists that parents help with homework. I want him to be independent. What are your thoughts on this?

Kathy Bradley - The backs of drawers

I found it in the back of a drawer. I had no idea how long it had been laying in wait.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - He only did it once: the sacrifice of Jesus

According to what may be an apocryphal story, shared by my friend Alan Smith, two visitors were touring the U. S. Naval facility in Annapolis, Maryland. As they followed the tour guide, they noticed several students on their hands and knees examining a courtyard with pencils and clipboards in hand.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: September splendor awaits those with patience

Sweltering temperatures soaring in the 90-degree range makes one wonder if autumn will ever return below the Mason-Dixon line, but with prayers and patience, Southerners too will soon enjoy the splendor of September fall days. Beautiful hues of orange and yellow and red lay hidden until the shorter days of September.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Early bedtimes work for teens, too

New research finds that teens whose school days begin later than the national norm of approximately eight o'clock achieve at higher levels than teens who start school earlier. The researchers in question recommend that that school start times be extended to at least 8:30 am.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk: South & Vine Public House burned but not broken

During the summer of 2013, just six months after an intriguing new restaurant popped up in downtown Statesboro on the corner of South Main and West Vine streets, I ventured inside to discover a restaurant that would become the backbone of our community and so much more.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Happy kids get old-fashioned parenting

As the old parenting point of view fell out of fashion beginning in the late 1960s, the vernacular that accompanied it all but completely disappeared. Today's parents don't say to their children the sorts of things parents said to children in the 1950s and before, things like "You're acting too big for your britches again, young man."

Kathy Bradley - A mimosa in time

What is this? A mimosa tree? Its slender branches are curved in an arc out over the ditch. Its fingerling leaves are dangling over my head. Its barkless trunk is all but hidden among the grapevines and pine trees and scrub oaks. I have walked by this very spot hundreds of times, driven by it thousands of times. How could I have never noticed a mimosa tree?

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Five-year-old wants to touch his cousin

Q: Our 5-year-old grandson sees his 5-year-old female first cousin from time to time. After they play for a while, he tells her he wants to "touch" her. This has happened twice in recent months. Her parents are very upset, but our grandson's parents read lots of parenting books and seem to think it's no big deal. Your thoughts on this matter?

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - My moment with the queen of Southern cuisine

As many of you may know, Paula Deen recently held two live shows in Savannah as part of her "Paula Deen LIVE!" tour. I had made plans to attend long before her team reached out to me in late July, and I wouldn't in my wildest dreams have imagined the events that followed.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Our victories come from God

Somewhere in the neighborhood of 20 years or so ago (not long after Carole and I moved from Arkansas to Statesboro), I learned of an opportunity to tour a WWII vintage U.S. Army Air Force B-17 bomber on display at the Statesboro airport. The study of history has been a favorite pursuit of mine since college, so I jumped at the chance to actually see this famous aircraft, "up close and personal!"

The classroom of life

It looks like we're going to have a great semester here at old East Georgia State College! The hallways are packed and students are trying to find their room assignments, make new friends, wait in long lines at the book store and just get comfortable with life after high school. It's not easy! You'd think that with all these electronic gizmos and computer knowledge, these young folks have the answers of the universe in the palms of their hands. Confusion reigns!
