Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - New York City Pizzeria opening November

As Georgia Southern continues to grow, so do the number of pizza restaurants in Statesboro. On that note, look for another pizza player to enter the field this November - New York City Pizzeria.

Kathy Bradley - A song and the passing of time

The sun this morning is a cross-section of pink grapefruit back-lit by a strobe light. It balances on the horizon, pulsing and trembling with the tension of anticipation, as though the day cannot begin quickly enough. As the road curves, it moves back and forth like the bouncing ball on the old Mitch Miller television show and I find myself wishing desperately that I knew the song. I try to identify what I am feeling and I settle on wistfulness.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Don't need 'app' for your chores

Full disclosure in four parts: First, I am not a tech-savvy person and never intend to become one. Second, I am convinced that the less technology, the better the life. Third, the technology in my life consists of a laptop, basic cell phone, stereo system, DVD player, flat-screen television, ROKU, and a Digital Video Recorder. Fourth, I do not believe children should have cell phones until they are able to take full responsibility for them, including paying the monthly bill.

Bulloch Genealogy with Roger Allen - Aldermans arrive in Bulloch in 1816

The name Alderman is well-known throughout Bulloch County, as they were one of the first families to settle in the area. Their ancestral family lines can be traced all the way back to Robert Alderman, who was born in Saint Margarets in Ipswich, England at the end of the 16th century.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Tobacco market sees expansion

Because of the onset of the "Great Depression," Statesboro's tobacco prices dropped from an already low price of 8.9 cents a pound in 1930 to 6.2 cents a pound in 1931, but then rose very slightly to 7.8 cents a pound in 1932.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Georgia Power changing to 'smart' meters

One afternoon last week, I came tootling down my street, only to see a service type truck in my driveway. I hadn't requested any help, so I was beyond curious, whipped into my driveway, and addressed the pleasant looking man in the truck with a pointed question - "Is there something that I can do for you?"

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - What's your parental mission?

I've been thinking a lot lately about the difference between the way I and almost everyone else in my generation (I was born in 1947, the year the flying saucers returned…just a coincidence) were raised and the way today's kids are being raised. The two ways in question reflect two entirely different mindsets; specifically, two entirely different understandings of the responsibilities involved in being a parent.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Make Autumn just awesome

A few leaves in golden yellow and fiery red have turned loose their grasp and fallen to the ground, littering the floor in patchwork colors of fall. Let every shade of autumn, from the brilliant display of colors on the trees to the oranges and yellows of scarecrows, pumpkins, and gourds remind you to capture each moment fall has to offer to make fun memories with your family. Try some of the celebrations below or make up a few crazy ones of your own. (After all, what could be much crazier than Moldy Cheese Day?)

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - South forms its first navy in Georgia

The formation of the Confederate Navy is one in which Georgia, and particularly the port of Savannah, played an important part.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - King Finishing part of huge textile company

Let me start this column by saying that I commend my fellow reporter Holli Deal Bragg for her coverage of the Ogeechee River fish kill including the most recent development - a consent order agreement between manufacturer King America Finishing and the Georgia Environmental Protection Division.

Kathy Bradley - Monks and soldiers

I finally used my passport. It's been in my safe for eight years, its navy blue cover stiff, the edges of its pages unruffled. It would be difficult to explain why it took so long; the important thing is that now a lovely blue stamp on one of its pages confirms the fact that my feet left the sovereign soil of the United States, landed in Ireland, and returned.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Changing your point of view

Browsing a gift shop the other day, I happened on a decorative plaque on which was inscribed a quote attributed to the late "power of positive thinking" guru Norman Vincent Peale: "Change your thinking, and you change your world."

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Bulloch organizes Farmers Alliance

In Georgia, the effort to organize a Farmers Alliance was led by two men: Oswald Wilson and J.B. Wilkes. Wilkes set up the first four local groups (or sub-alliances) in Carroll, Heard, Coweta, and Troup Counties, starting in the fall of 1887.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Looking for a better future

Even though most people don't think about making personal resolutions until closer to the New Year, I'd like to say a few things about their importance, and suggest a few for you to consider. A lot of people don't like them, but, in my opinion, we need them. They help us think about where we need to improve, and, at the same time, encourage us toward making our lives more productive and enjoyable.

John Bressler - God and family will always be the cornerstone

A priest, who taught at Notre Dame, spoke to me about a textbook he had written which concentrated on the early sociological system around the first century Middle Eastern culture. While the Bible does not use his exact terminology to describe the family unit, most scholars agree that he and his peers are right on target.

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!

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Parent Anxiety: the root of potty problems

On one of my websites I, along with a team of certified parent coaches, answer questions submitted by parents. In the last two days, 67 percent of the questions have concerned toilet training. A 3-year-old is afraid of the potty. A 26-month-old will only use the potty independently if he's not wearing clothes. A 23-month-old seems oblivious to mom's expectations. And so on.

Kathy Bradley - Bits and scraps and making nests

Why do we call it nesting? Why not denning or lairing? Why was the home of a bird, as opposed to that of a lion or fox or bear, turned into a verb?

God does answer prayers

I was talking to a neighbor last week, and what he said was so moving that I asked if I could share our conversation with you folks. We talked about prayer.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Give them an inch, they'll take a mohawk

A mom recently asked me what I would say to my son if he were 12 years old and wanted a mohawk haircut for the summer. I told her I'd say no.

Health advice: Maybe you need a vacation

Most people enjoy out-of-town excursions. Lots of people take them annually. But as another summer begins to fade, many workers may be wondering if a vacation is worth the trouble and expense. Modern travelers often face an added problem as they go on holiday: They take along their personal technology devices, allowing the stresses that they are trying to escape to follow them out of town.
