Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Make time to enjoy the last month of the year

The last month of the year 2012 is upon us, with only a handful of shopping days left until Christmas. Use your time wisely to make quality memories this month, not crazy ones. Don't let the frenzy of decorating, baking and shopping steal the joy of the season. Make time for friends and family, hot chocolate in front of the fire, carols and mistletoe kisses, and donations of goodwill to someone in need. Celebrate the season with your own special traditions, and sprinkle in a few of the wacky, but true, holidays below.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Excelsior EMC forms out of the New Deal

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Learning to play an instrument can be a great outlet for child

Q: What is an appropriate age for a child to begin learning a musical instrument? I've looked into lessons in my area, and teachers accept children as young as 2 or 3 for violin and piano lessons.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Can we know the Bible came from God?

One of the most important things we can think about concerning God is this: Can we know the Bible is the word of God? Some - many? - might ask, "Why is this so important? Can't we just accept by faith that the Bible is from God?" While we do accept it "by faith," that faith must be based on evidence, or it isn't really faith; it is nothing more than opinion. That's the view on which atheists and agnostics insist, adding that one opinion is as good as another, so we can't really have any real confidence ...

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - FBS move would create economic boost

I had the tremendous pleasure of going to Athens last weekend to watch the Eagles take on the Bulldogs. As a graduate of both institutions, I literally had the opportunity to cheer on every play. Granted, that was a little strange.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Children perceive persuasion as a weakness

Q: My 12-year-old grandson has become obsessed with things he wants, including a cellphone (the most expensive, mind you), an iPad and expensive designer jeans. He begs, throws tantrums, pouts, refuses to speak to his parents and the like. When told not to say another word, he leaves them notes, draws pictures or comes to us or the other grandparents.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Celebrate Thanksgiving all year long

The story of the 10 lepers is sad from the standpoint of the nine healed men who failed to express gratitude to Jesus (Luke 17:11–19). We're not told why they didn't return; the implication is that it was because of neglect. But from the standpoint of the one that remembered, it is a prime example of the value of expressed thankfulness.

Kathy Bradley - Tales from Uncle Remus

When I was a little girl, our vacations always sent us north toward Rock City and Ruby Falls, Stone Mountain and Grant Park, Cherokee and the Great Smokies. And, in the absence in those days of an interstate highway system, our trek always took us through Eatonton, home of Joel Chandler Harris, creator of Uncle Remus.

Jim Healy: If at first you don't succeed, secede

Shortly after President Obama took office in 2009, his administration created the "We the People" website. Essentially, it offers a lot of information about the executive branch of government, how it works and, of course, the Obama administration's spin on issues.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Georgia's Salzburgers spark silk industry

Every Labor Day, nearly 1,000 people journey to the Salzburger homestead in Effingham County, Ga., for the anniversary of the arrival of the Germans in Georgia nearly 280 years ago. A large number of Bulloch County families are direct descendants of these immigrants, who braved a dangerous voyage across the Atlantic Ocean in horrible conditions in search of religious freedom in the new colony of Georgia.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Trust child's physician with physical well-being

Q: My 8-year-old son was born prematurely and weighed only 3 pounds. He is still too thin in my opinion, although his doctor hasn't been worried about it. I have been trying to get him to gain weight his whole life.

Jim Healy: What did GOP learn?

While I can't imagine what it was like for folks living in Ohio or Virginia and being overwhelmed with political ads wherever you were, I'm not going to miss the ads from Lee Anderson and John Barrow that ran like machine-gun fire on television during the past month.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Son likely untruthful about smoking habits

Q: We just discovered that our 17-year-old is using nicotine. He tells us he's been using for the past several months, smoking two to four cigarettes a day to cope with academic anxiety and relationships. He tends to be socially reserved and has been struggling with academics of late. He appears contrite and remorseful and has said, "I should never have gotten started with this stuff in the first place."

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Half a year gone already!

With school bells just around the corner, the lazy days of summer are slowly slipping away. Along those lines, over half of the days of year 2015 have slipped away, too. July 1 or 2 - according to how precise you are, and if you add that .5-day when you divide 365 in half - is officially the halfway point of the year. Have you had half of the family fun you hope to have this year? How are the family memories for the year adding up?

Kathy Bradley: In the middle -- with snakes

The first snake skin of the season appeared about six weeks ago, stretched out in a long line across the concrete of the carport in almost exactly the same spot as the one I found last year - the one I measured and looked up in the Audubon Guide to confirm its non-venomous nature. Upon spying this new one, I congratulated myself - since there was no one else there to congratulate me - on what amounted to a non-reaction, i.e., "Oh, look. A snake skin. The skin of a snake. Lying within a few feet of my back door. What a ...

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Treat emotional outbursts with more sleep

Q: Our 8-year-old daughter tries to manipulate us and her siblings (she is the youngest of three) with emotional outbursts and whining when things don't go her way. She is mostly a delightful, cheerful child, but this bothersome cycle flares up at least every other day. For the time being, at least, she only behaves this way at home. I think she would be embarrassed to behave this way in front of other people, including her friends.

You know you're in Fla. when ...

I turned to Julie and said, "I really know we're in Florida!" We had to take some stuff to Goodwill, and while I was talking to the young man who was processing our giveaways, I noticed a sign just back of their store almost hidden by the bushes. I thought it said, "Warning! No golfing or laughing!" That didn't seem to make a lot of sense, so I walked closer to get a better look. There was a makeshift wall that had been put up as a sort of barrier and a shirtless guy leaned out and said ...

Kathy Bradley: Worthiness of rain

Across the field I could hear it coming, like the rustling of a thousand pages, the whispers of a thousand lovers, the lifting of a thousand wings. The rain moved toward me across the broad, flat field, a row at a time.
