Kathy Bradley - Grammar, astronomy and being tamed

Somebody said that if I went outside around 9 o'clock and looked in the western sky I could see Jupiter and Venus. So I went outside and stood in the middle of the big empty yard and stared at the place where I'm usually watching the sun sink. There they were, two white lights too big to be stars and too still to be airplanes, so they must be planets. I didn't see any rings around either one of them - not that I expected to at that distance, of course - but it occurred to me at that ...

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - The long history of the ‘Sylvania’

The most famous ship named "Sylvania" was a Cunard passenger liner, 608 feet long, 80 feet across and weighing in at 22,017 tons gross. Built in 1957 in the Clyde Bank Shipyards in Glasgow, Scotland, the Sylvania was one of the Cunard Line's new fleet of ships for the Canadian passenger market.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Prize boxes counterproductive in classrooms

Q: Our 8-year-old son was caught stealing from the teacher's prize box at school. He has done this in the past and was punished, but it seems he hasn't gotten the picture yet. Do you have any suggestions for us?

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Raise your children with good American values

Un partie: Stop the presses! Two weeks ago, I reviewed and commented upon Pamela Druckerman's book "Bringing Up Bebe" in which she makes the claim that French parents, on the whole, raise children who are much more well-behaved, and at earlier ages, than their American counterparts.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Make green memories in March

The month of all things green leapt onto the calendar just after the gift of an extra day in February. Celebrate the blessings of family with green treats and surprises throughout the month, like green grits and milk, green shirts and matching hair bows, cloverleaf searches and barefoot walks in the grass. Look for every shade of green imaginable, as sprinkles of leaflets begin to dot the formerly barren trees of winter. Welcome hints of springtime with original celebrations or try some of the holidays below.

Kathy Bradley - Wherever here is

It is Tuesday afternoon. I arrive home to find Mama and Daddy immersed in the project of burning off some undergrowth in the branch behind Sandhill. I am planning a party and they've decided - actually Mama has decided - that the place will look prettier without the dead vines and fallen-over trees blocking sight of the pond. Within minutes there are three or four piles of brittle branches and broken limbs stacked into pyres and throwing fat orange flames into the late afternoon air.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Make your kids care about the problems only they can fix

Parents tell me their daughter is intelligent and did well in school up until the seventh grade, at which time she stopped doing the required work and her grades, consequently, went down the proverbial tube.

Bulloch Geneology with Roger Allen - The most famous local, modern-day Brannen

James Alonzo Brannen was many things, including the first mayor of the city of Statesboro. Very well respected, he was urged to run for the Democratic nomination for the United States Congress in 1904. His opponent would be none other than long-time incumbent Col. Rufus Lester of Savannah.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - French parenting something to consider

Last year, a Chinese-American Tiger Mother told American parents how to raise children who will make straight A's and play Carnegie Hall before they reach puberty. This year, the French are showing us how to raise children who will obey, throw few if any tantrums, and sit quietly in restaurants, listening while adults talk about adult things. Vivé la France!

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Blessed are the hungry and thirsty

Hunger is (and almost always has been, I suppose) a world-wide problem. Even in the most prosperous cultures, people go to bed hungry every night.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - The railroad craze sweeps Bulloch County

During the late Nineteenth Century, railroad fever swept the nation, and Georgia was not immune to the building frenzy. However, many of the proposed new railroads never even made it off the drawing board. This is a story of Bulloch County's "Nether Trains," most of whom never even laid down the first set of rails.

Kathy Bradley - No words and singing frogs

The habit developed slowly, as all habits do, and morphed over the years into something more like a ritual: On the night of the full moon, just before bed, I walk out on the deck to tilt my head, stretch my neck and gaze. Once every 28 days or so, I reach out with my eyes for a touchstone, a reminder that some things remain true.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Central of Ga. opens local line

The Macon Construction Company got charters in 1888 to build three separate railroads, one of which was to be the Macon and Atlantic Railway (M&A). The M&A, which was to run from Macon to Savannah, actually laid down twelve miles of rails heading eastward from the town of Bruton in Laurens County before the money ran out and it went into receivership in 1894.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Stay the course with listening issues

Q: My 5-year-old daughter is in "rehab" for some listening issues at school. When she comes home with a note from her teacher indicating one or more of these incidents at school, she is confined to her room for the rest of the day. What should I do if she is constantly calling me, wanting to ask me something, wanting me to get something for her, and so on? She isn't coming out of the room, but she is constantly trying to engage me. It's driving me nuts.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: A brief list of today's parenting problems

From the I'm Sorry to Have to Tell You Department: Parents who say they want to raise kids who "think for themselves" are not being exactly truthful. It's a nice and very democratic thing to say, for sure, but let's face it, folks: You want your kids to think like you do. For example: If you're a liberal, you want your kids to be liberals when they grow up. Right? Right! The same is true of conservatives, libertarians, people of faith, people of no faith and people with COEXIST bumper stickers on their cars. Furthermore, that ...

Where do you fit in the scheme?

It's last Monday morning and according to the weather report - and somebody got it right this time - it's raining very hard with thunder and lightning, and it's nice to be inside looking out. This afternoon, we have a 100 percent chance of very heavy rain, high winds and a get-ready-to-hunker-down warning, which I will do my best to follow the directions. One of my colleagues has just told me we're not supposed to have this kind of stuff this late in the year. Since he teaches Algebra, what does he know? He knows this: it is ...

Living with Children with John Rosemond: The understated power of "I told you so"

Q: My 6-year-old son argues with me about everything I tell him to do. He comes up with reason after reason why he shouldn't have to or can't, why it's unfair or why, at the least, I should help him. I think he's got some argument disorder. Is there such a thing? In any case, it's beginning to drive me nuts, up a wall, and over the edge. Is there a solution?

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk: Keepin' it classic with Thanksgiving traditions

When it comes to Thanksgiving, I'm a traditionalist at heart. So when I hear modern day chefs and food personalities begin to talk about "turning up the volume on old classics" and "reinventing grandma's recipes," the first thought that comes to mind is the old philosophy, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." On the other hand, I'm always open to trying new dishes and getting creative in the kitchen, but Thanksgiving wouldn't be Thanksgiving without a few classic staples like pumpkin pie, roasted turkey and cranberry sauce from the can (and football and ...

We can choose the gift of God

Almost all old timers - I do not mean Alzheimer's or me - remember when they had a class where the teacher brought up a philosophical exercise about choices. Usually, it had to do with a sinking ship, one lifeboat and too many survivors in shark-filled waters.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Over-involved parents ruin everything

Why are young adult children emancipating so much later than they did in 1970, when the average age of male emancipation (independent living, paying one's own bills) was 21? Why do significant numbers of college professors and even employers complain about parents of young adult students/employees confronting them over, respectively, bad grades and workplace issues? Why have reduced class sizes and increased per-pupil expenditures not resulted in higher academic achievement levels? Why is the mental health of today's kids so poor when compared with that of children in the 1960s and before? Why have school phobia, test ...

Kathy Bradley: The light in autumn

There are so many ways to measure the movement of the year. The temperature of the breeze that comes wafting across the field, the color of the vegetation along the fence rows, the birdsong or lack thereof. Each of them in one way or another announces the passage of time from one season to the next. But breezes and briars and birds can be deceptive. Wet summer winds can demand a sweater. Rain can make an autumn ditch run like spring. Birds can get confused.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Let us praise God openly and naturally

David, the second king of God's special people, Israel, wrote a psalm of praise for his deliverance from his enemies, including Saul, the ruler he had succeeded: "For this I will praise you, O LORD, among the nations, and sing praises to your name" (2 Samuel 22:50).
