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 ...

Bulloch Genealogy with Roger Allen - Akinses get name from Scotch hero

The MacKinnons assisted King Robert I of Scotland during the Wars of Scottish Independence, and were rewarded with their island estate. They ruled from "An Caisteal Moal," which after Findanus' marriage to Mary became known as "Dun Akin."

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.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Tractor Supply creating 12-17 new jobs

With no fanfare whatsoever, construction has begun, and you all have noticed. Right behind the McDonald's restaurant at the corner of Northside Drive and Lovett Road - in the Southern Square shopping center - the building of a new, free-standing Tractor Supply is underway.

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.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Separate biting sister, brother

Q: In the last month, our 36-month-old daughter has started biting her 22-month-old brother, usually over toy struggles. It is always to get his hand to release the toy in question. I'm sorry to say that when she bites, I lose it. My husband says I should put her in her room until he gets home from work no matter what time of day the biting occurs. She is currently in her room until dad gets home. I worry that this is too much for a child her age, but then again, time-outs are a joke. Help!

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Savor sweet times in September

The sound of helmets and football pads clashing, tempered with melodious band notes in the background - the aroma of freshly mowed farmers' fields - and the sprinkling of orange and golden pumpkins and gourds at the produce stands heightens the senses to the impending shift from summer to autumn. Celebrate and treasure a new season with family members and those you love. Create lasting memories with the holidays below, or invent some new family traditions to cherish.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Bi-Lo plans expansion with all work at night

What is significant about June 3, 1992? Well, that is the day that the brand new Bi-Lo opened in the Statesboro Mall. Taking into account the fervor that our community has for its grocery stores, I thought that date might have significance for some of you.

John Bressler - God will take care of the rest of the story

One of the biggest mistakes the educational system has made over the last 30 or so years has been the removal of what was once required in every school in just about every state: driver's education. I'm sure that funding had a great deal to do with the choice and many felt that being able to manipulate a vehicle around town and on the local highways was not brain surgery and any idiot could drive well enough to get by, so why put stress on the board of education's already stretched-to-the-limit budget?

Kathy Bradley - Rosemary and time

He was late in arriving. The lunch crowd had dispersed and the restaurant was nearly empty. The blades of the ceiling fans caught the sunlight from the glass panels in the front doors and threw tiny trapezoidal flashes at the corners of my eyes. Tall plastic glasses of tea - his sweetened the right way, mine artificially so - sweated on the table between us.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Meet a modern witness of faith

In this edition of "Thinking of God," I'd like to talk a little more about the violent persecution of Christians in the modern world, in many so-called "civilized" areas. Bible readers are familiar with the stories of early Christians in the first century A. D. who paid for their faith in Jesus as the Son of God, often with their lives. Persecution has never totally ceased since then, down to the present day. Our awareness of its existence will hopefully lead to an appreciation of the importance of preparation for it in our time.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Cotton: Lifeblood of Bulloch County

With cotton fields all around and bolls about to bloom, cotton remains the lifeblood of many Bulloch Countians today, as it has been for more than a 150 years. The word "Cotton" translates to "coton" in French, and even sounds the same in Arabic: "Qutun". The cotton plant is actually a member of the Mallow family, which also includes milkweed and hollyhock.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - First Southern closing is shocking, sobering

When I started covering business news for the Statesboro Herald almost seven years ago, I never thought that I would write about a bank in Statesboro being shut down by regulators. It was surreal when I walked into First Southern's lobby on Saturday to speak with those involved with its closing and transition.

New breast cancer treatment options offering new hope

As a surgical oncologist focused on treating breast cancer, I see daily how devastating a breast cancer diagnosis can be. But I also see daily how new and often cutting-edge treatments give women the hope and courage they need to help manage or overcome the physical, mental and emotional challenges of breast cancer, and in many cases, beat the disease altogether.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Public-school discipline policies tie teachers' hands

A first-grade teacher asks what she can do about a girl in her class who is completely undisciplined. After nearly two months of this teacher's best efforts, the child's behavior is no better. She is defiant and aggressive toward other kids, and often gets out of her seat and crawls around on the floor. Several years ago she taught the girl's older sister, who also had numerous discipline issues. The home is chaotic, so the teacher doubts she can expect much - if any - help from the parents.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk: Foolproof apple crisp for the love of fall

On my ride to work on the first day of October, I turned on the defrost in my car for the first time this year. When I got to work, I turned off my air conditioning, relishing in the cool, rainy temperatures outside. This season, I've already enjoyed a few weekend brunches on my screened-in back porch, easy like a Sunday morning. I'm always sad to see summer go, but the food of fall and the excitement of the holidays quickly propel me forward.

Simpson, Bowles: Barrow is 'brave'

Our nation needs to get its fiscal house in order, and to do so citizens must fully demand leaders who are willing to put partisan differences aside and come together to present the American people with honest solutions and consensus proposals that put the national interest ahead of special interests. That is why we were so disheartened to learn that John Barrow is being criticized for his support of a budget based on the plan recommended in 2010 by a bipartisan majority of the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform which we co-chaired (Simpson-Bowles Commission).

Make reckless drivers pay

Tens of thousands of Georgians live with lifelong disabilities caused by brain and spinal cord injury. As medical technology, safety and trauma care have improved more people survive traumatic injury, but many then face a lifetime of physical, behavioral and cognitive impairments requiring ongoing support services. On any given day in communities all across Georgia, survivors of brain and spinal cord injury and their caregivers gather together in support groups to share the struggles they face living with these lifelong impairments. Astoundingly, there are over 75,800 newly injured Georgians each year, and close to 50 percent of those injuries ...

For the love of reading

I love reading college textbooks. Well, that is an exaggeration, as math has few stories about killin' and drinkin' and pillagin', which are very good subjects for an active mind like mine. Anyway, I always ask my teaching friends if they happen to have some old used books that could be tossed my way. The fact is that most old textbooks are quite accurate. However, they do lack colorful pictures to break up the monotony of long and sometimes boring paragraphs. I have always wondered why many of my students ask if they could take my picture to have for ...

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Son may naturally outgrow shy personality

Q: My 7-year-old son does well in school and sports and has a good number of friends. However, he often allows himself to be intimidated by other boys. He is a rule-follower and is more worried about getting in trouble than defending himself. I worry that other boys will see him as easy to pick on. Occasionally, he complains about how other boys treat him. What words can I use with him to explain how to be confident in himself and his athletic abilities, and not allow himself to be intimidated by other boys?

Kathy Bradley - Moon, myth and slow eclipse

Eclipses are slow. Which means there is plenty of time to notice the dew on my feet and the armadillo hole I may or may not be standing in, to hear a strange choral performance by the frogs in the branch that sounds like a rustling of the feathers of a giant flock of geese, to get just a little impatient and start staring at the stars instead, making up my own constellations.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: The teenage brain is not a mystery

I've spoken at several conferences in the last year or so where presenters were opining on the subject of the teenage brain. Their thesis was that features of the so-called "teenage brain" are largely responsible for the self-centered, irrational, moody, rebellious behavior now associated with adolescence.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Make autumn awesome for the whole family

The weather in the 'Boro seems bent on keeping us guessing. Is it a raincoat day? Sweater day? Or shorts-and-sunglasses day? But the gentle tease of recent cool weather lets us know fall truly is coming, eventually, maybe in December. Enjoy all that fall offers, regardless of the thermometer, and make this an incredibly awesome autumn with your family. Celebrate the usual - fair week, Columbus Day, football games, church fall festivals and trick-or-treat night - and add a few of the zany but real holidays below to the family calendar for October.
