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.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - It's time to clean up our spiritual lives

Several years ago, my wife Carole and I were in "the process" of moving to a different house in Statesboro. "The process" had began several weeks earlier when we learned our offer on the house we're in now had been accepted, and we started getting things together.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Mom losing her patience, sleep

Q: I gave birth to our second child a few weeks ago so I'm sleep-deprived and running low on patience. In the meantime, my 3-year-old son has become another person. He has regressed with potty training; he isn't cooperating with me about anything; and he laughs when I put him in time-out, like it's a joke. I find myself yelling and threatening constantly. Is this directly related to having a new sibling? If so, will it pass? By the way, he seems to like the idea of being a big brother. He's very sweet to him ...

Kathy Bradley - Three views from an office

I've worked in this building for 11 years. I'm presently in my third office. The first one was directly by the front door and everyone who came in passed by. It had a set a double windows with a sill wide enough that, on afternoons when my brain pulsed like the walls of a disco and distraction was the only antidote for the throbbing, I could sit and watch the traffic - car and foot - move by on Main Street in currents running north and south.

John Bressler - Bringing together folks of different faiths

While I was pastor of the Presbyterian Church on South Tamiami Trail in Sarasota, Florida, I was asked to convene, chair and moderate the NCCJ, the National Conference of Christians and Jews. We met monthly and the group included mostly Reform rabbis, members of their congregations, as well as Christian pastors and church members. There was one purpose of the gathering and that was to study the Bible and how it was read, studied and applied in Jewish and Christian communities.

Column: Impacts of childhood obesity

Many people are uncomfortable talking about childhood obesity, especially when it comes to their own children. However, ignoring it, or thinking a child will slim down as he or she grows taller, can make things worse.

Column: It's time for action

There's been a lot of talk lately about what the Statesboro City Council is going to do about the terrible tragedy that happened at Rude Rudy's a couple of weeks ago. And we've heard a lot of opinions on what the city "should do" and rampant speculation as to why the council won't do it.

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?

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.

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?

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.
