John Bressler - Accept God's plan for you: There is no mystery

A Florida friend said to me, "Be what you is, because if you try to be what you ain't, then you ain't what you is." If that doesn't smack of poetry, I don't know what does.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - 'Mixed bag' to report in local real estate sales

Last week was the Promdicator. This week I would like to look at real estate, specifically 2009 versus 2010. With the help of local realtor Shannon Grindler - our real estate statistics guru - I have a "mixed bag" to report.

Kathy Bradley -- Around and around

There's a church in Grand Rapids, Mich., that used to be a shopping mall. I've never seen it, but I can imagine that its architecture isn't exactly what one would call traditional. I understand, in fact, that the sanctuary - which they may not even call the sanctuary - is sort of, well, round. Not semi-circular with two or three aisles leading up to the pulpit like sun rays on an elementary school bulletin board, but round with chairs or pews placed all the way around the platform where the pastor stands. Interesting.

"For God so loved the world..." This past week, we received an email from my brother-in-law, we believed, that read, "Help! I am in Italy and have lost my passport and my credit cards and need just enough cash to get home. I'll pay you back as soon as I can. Love, ..."

Bulloch Genealogy with Roger Allen - Richardson's settle in Bulloch County

The family name Richardson translates in "Olde German" to "son of Richard." The name has two parts: "Ric", which means power; and "hard," which means brave. This translation was best displayed in the English King known as "Richard the Lion-Hearted."

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Where exactly is our state of Georgia

Almost everyone knows where Georgia lies inside the boundaries of the United States. But where exactly is Georgia located on Mother Earth? The answer is surprising. It also makes it very clear why Georgia was an area that all of Europe's colonial powers wanted to control.

An Easter feast of roasted lamb

Over two French doors in my kitchen hangs a sign that reads, "Good wine, good friends, good times." That couldn't have described the scene around my table more on the cool and rainy Tuesday night we had earlier this week. I'd invited a few of my closest friends to my early Easter feast, where we would dine on roasted lamb with mint chutney and farm-style side dishes hailing from the soil of Screven County.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Torturing animals raises suspicions of sociopathy

Q: My 18-year-old son and a slightly younger friend recently found some mice and decided to dispose of them. They drowned one and set the other one on fire. When I confronted my son for torturing animals, his response was, "They're just mice." Is this typical boy behavior, or should I be concerned?

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.

Inside Bulloch Business with DeWayne Grice - Masters gives Statesboro hotels a nice 'bump'

Every now and then it is good to get out of the Boro and get a different perspective. One of my favorite places to get a feel of how the "ordinary Georgians" are doing is Bennie's Red Barn on St. Simons Island.

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.
