Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Sibling bullying is not acceptable

Q: The younger of my two boys, 10 years old, has started cutting himself when his 13-year-old brother picks on him. His older brother is also verbally abusive to him and at times to me. I'm not sure what to tell the 10-year-old. He's a very sweet boy who does great in school and has nice friends. I've told him he needs to express his anger in a positive manner. Meanwhile my husband and I have told our 13-year-old that we will not tolerate this behavior. In the past I would tell them to solve it on ...

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Queensborough making move to S. Main

It has been just about a year since the FDIC forced the closure of First Southern National Bank on South Main Street in Statesboro. Several months ago, the First Southern building was listed for sale by the FDIC, and local realtor Sam Dipolito was given the listing.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - The empty tomb is a doorway to 'new life'

So much has been said and written about the resurrection of Jesus. Surely no event in all history has received more attention, both positive and negative, than this singular moment.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Parents help child move past tantrums

A reader in Buffalo resonated with a recent column in which I opined that a punishment is worthless unless it establishes a permanent memory.

Kathy Bradley - Cornfields and Kool-Aid

With all the rain we've gotten lately, from Beryl and various other low-pressure systems, the corn may well be as high as an elephant's eye. My memories of the Grant Park Zoo, formed when I was considerably shorter than I am now, leave me a little vague as to how high that is exactly, but it is, I think, safe to assume, higher than my head and the corn is definitely that.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Confining child to his room is not 'harsh'

I occasionally receive complaints from fellow mental health professionals that my approach to discipline is excessively punitive. The most recent accused me of actually recommending that 3-year-olds spend as much as a full day in their rooms for certain offenses. Said professional was horrified. She said punishment of that sort is "harsh" and does not "send positive messages."

Kathy Bradley - Basil and invisible topography

Basil, it is said, wards off dragons. I learned this long after having started growing basil in the big clay pot on the deck. Long after having mastered the technique the witty and beautiful people of the Food Network call "chiffonade" (the process of rolling the deep green leaves into tiny cigars and slicing them into slender ribbons of fragrance). Long after having decided that, when the time comes, I'd like my casket filled with fresh-cut basil so that I can leave this world surrounded by the scent of spring.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Mother wants to help son overcome father's death

Q: My husband was killed nearly a year ago, and my 11-year-old son is still having a difficult time with it. Before the accident, he was always cheerful and social and hardly ever complained. That still describes him, most of the time, but every now and again he slips into moods where he is just the opposite. These episodes occur once every couple of weeks and last for a couple of days, on average. I took him to see a therapist a while back, but I saw no change after three months of weekly sessions, so I took him out ...

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Seafood eatery on stilts and CVS progress

I probably drive through the intersection of Fair Road and Zetterower Avenue at least four times a day. In doing so over the last few weeks, I have thought to myself many times, why in the world are they putting all of those telephone poles in the ground as they prepare to construct the new CVS pharmacy?

Inside Bulloch Business with DeWayne Grice - Statesboro ENT a key part of downtown revival

One of the greatest challenges in any community is rehabbing and reusing existing buildings. There is a common thought process that it is easier to tear down a building and start over.

Kathy Bradley: A pocketful of pennies

It has become an annual trip. A pilgrimage. And though we don't remove our shoes or crawl on our knees or touch our foreheads to the ground, we probably should. The spot is that sacred.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Son's anxiety caused by panic attacks

Q: My 13-year-old son has developed overwhelming anxiety about going to school. This began a year ago, but has gotten steadily worse since then. At this point he fights me every morning about going to school, and even if I can persuade him to get in the car, he won't get out. If I try to force him, he becomes nearly hysterical. I'm a stay-at-home mom, so there have been many days this year when I've simply taken him back home. His principal and everyone at the school say he's fine once he's in the ...

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Custody battles should prioritize kids

Equality under the law is a uniquely American principle, one that no freedom-loving person would oppose, but the manner in which said principle is currently applied to the issue of child custody treats children as property - like pieces of furniture or bank accounts - rather than human beings with rights of their own, including the right to stable living conditions.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk: So long, Statesboro; hello, Lowcountry

Sometimes you have to embrace a place before you can move on. I remember the moment I chose to embrace Statesboro. It was during a solo lunch at McAlister's Deli. No one here was writing about food, at least not in our hometown newspaper. I saw a need to highlight the local restaurants in our city, to draw positive attention to the chefs and restaurant owners and to help promote our outstanding farming community. I reached out and pitched my idea to the Statesboro Herald, and thankfully they agreed.

Words written in the firmament

Every morning, I get to look into the eyes of the most beautiful lady I have ever seen. I smile at her and she says, "Good morning, Doofus!" with a smile that makes my day. All week I get to drive on some back roads - hopefully avoiding the ubiquitous deer - to be at East Georgia State and surrounded by students of all shapes and sizes and some of the nicest colleagues you'd ever want to meet. My office is on the south side and I am within spitball range of three historians, two great English professors, a first class ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Benefits of vaccines outweigh the risks

First, a full disclosure: I have been vaccinated against measles, mumps, diphtheria, rubella, whooping cough, smallpox and shingles and have had none of these maladies. At one time or another, my wife received all of these same vaccinations. Our kids were both immunized, and they have chosen to have their kids immunized. None of us has ever had an adverse reaction to a vaccination.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: 'Get the jump' on sin and prepare with God's word

Clothing stores normally display new fashions well ahead of the season. Stores here in Statesboro have had spring fashions out for several weeks, even though spring is several weeks away. An iron-clad rule for merchandisers is to "get the jump" on the buying seasons. In a spiritual context, Christians should be interested in "getting the jump" on sin, being prepared for temptation when it comes. This can be done if we'll apply some basic principles.
