Nothing like Christmas in Florida

I hope you folks had as fine a Christmas as we did and are looking forward to a wonderful New Year and waiting to see what God has in store for each and everyone. I never see what's coming as bad as it seems, but rather to see what possibilities are out there for me to tackle and learn from.

Begin 2014 with God

"I hated my work, because when I die I will leave all I have done to a complete stranger who might be competent or a complete idiot. I will have spent a lifetime on work which will be given away. What a waste!" (My translation of Ecclesiastes 2:18-19).

Coming back home

I recently visited Statesboro for the first time in a long while and I was pleasantly surprised to find that the Boro has grown appreciably yet still retains its small-town charm.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Toddlers should not be allowed to dictate what they eat

Q: Our son is 3 1/2 and for the most part eats very well. We make up his plate for each meal, and he has to eat what is on his plate, or at least try each food on the plate before he can get more of something he really likes. We also make sure that he remains seated during the entire meal. Sometimes he will request fruit before he is finished with his dinner. We tell him he first has to finish what's on his plate first. Should we be forcing him to eat his main meal ...

Kathy Bradley - For want of a fire

The wreath is still on the back door. The jingle bells tied to its branches reflect just enough of the floodlights at the corner of the house to make tiny blue and green starbursts. The ends of the big peacock-colored bow move only slightly in the night breeze. Christmas is over, and I really should have taken it down.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Make every day a holiday in 2014

A brand new year, with new beginnings, fresh starts and a wealth of warm memories with loved ones to carry us through the year. Whatever resolutions you've made and possibly already cast aside, I pray that a top priority will always be family. Create lasting memories of quality time spent together, and fashion fun adventures to treasure: Play board games, cook new recipes, go hiking, paint pictures, read books, watch old movies, chase fireflies and watch for eagles, build forts and camp out in the den, roast marshmallows, meet new friends, help someone in need, write songs and race ...

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Watch how Pladd Dot makes its guitars

I want to tell you all about an interesting "tourism" option here in Statesboro. Last year, I wrote an article about Pladd Dot Music owner Chris Mitchell opening a 7,500-square-foot manufacturing facility for amplifiers and guitars just off U.S. Highway 301 North.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - New Year's Day brunch featuring grape salad

New Year's Eve is usually a late night for my friends and me, and breakfast time is gone with the sunrise when we awake around mid-morning. Brunch, then, is the perfect meal to ring in the new year. A combination of breakfast and lunch typically eaten by 3 p.m., brunch originated in England in the late 1800s and became popular in the United States in the 1930s.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - New museum coming to old Shoney's location

Slow down and enjoy the moment

Twenty-five years ago when Julie and I drove into Statesboro with the kids, we knew we had been blessed by God Who had brought us home. Strangers waved at us as we drove in, the streets were clean and there was little traffic up and down old two-lane Fair Road. I think there were only a few places to eat - mostly family style - and Georgia Southern College had perhaps 9,000 students.

Tribute to a friend I met online

All too often, we hear horror stories about "meeting" people online. It's true that predators and crazy people use the Internet as a tool to take advantage of others, but if one uses common sense, the world of cyberspace can lead to true, real relationships.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Video games proving very problematic for teen boys

Q: Our 14-year-old son seems depressed - to us, at least. His principal sees no sign of depression but thinks he's socially anxious. The subjects of counseling and medication have come up. We have suggested to him that he get more exercise and spend less time playing video games and watching TV, but he says he hates sports. He appears to be withdrawing more and more into his video-screen world.

'Elijah' took me to Israel

It has been some 30 years since my brother-in-law and I stood on the top of Mount Carmel in northern Israel, the site of the remarkable biblical encounter between Elijah and the priests of Baal. We had talked about 1 Kings 17 the night before and when we realized that we were not bound to the travel itinerary and read about a side trip to Haifa - just a few miles from Mount Carmel - we jumped at the chance.

Guest column: Preventing cervical cancer

A cancer diagnosis, no matter the type, can be sobering for any patient. Cervical cancer in particular can be frightening for women with fears that the diagnosis eliminates their chance to have children, or worse. As a gynecological oncologist, helping women understand the importance of preventative care can mitigate many of the threats associated with cervical cancer.

The importance of teachers

Recently, I exited my editor's office to find a lady waiting to speak to me. I was quite flabbergasted when she told me I was a former student of her father's, and that he spoke of me often until his death earlier this year.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - Tips for hosting your own low country boil party

Today is my 31st birthday, which brings to mind one of the best parties I've ever thrown, my Low Country Boil Birthday Bash just a few years ago.

It's no wonder so many folks are looking for complimentary side dishes and décor ideas, now that the beautiful weather has returned to us and the spring breeze beckons us outdoors. This week, I'll share some easy entertaining tips for hosting ...

Fun with Family with Julie Lavender - Enjoy the splendor of spring with family

Though there were days when we thought winter would never end, the beauty surrounding us in shades of green and blossoms of every color convinces onlookers that spring actually has arrived. Don't waste a minute of this glorious season - get outdoors and smell the flowers, run barefoot in the grass, go for late-evening walks, and fire up the grill for a family picnic. Create some new springtime celebrations for your family to enjoy, or take part in the following April holidays.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Be a parent, not a friend

Q: My 14-year-old daughter says I don't trust her because, unlike her best friend's parents, I won't allow her to stay home alone for several days while I go out of town. Her friend's parents do this at least once a month while they go to their second home, and their two teenagers - 14 and 16 - have thrown at least two raucous alcohol (and most likely sex) parties in their absence.
