My Take with Matt Yogus - Eagle Softball in prime position

Not to put too much pressure on Georgia Southern coach Maggie Johnson and her Lady Eagles, but there are plenty of reasons why things couldn't have worked out much better heading into the Southern Conference softball tournament.

Parenting advice with John Rosemond - Take control of your 'monkey'

Q: Our 4-year old is fairly well behaved but her best friend is definitely not. We just got back from a weekend trip with that family, and I was constantly embarrassed at my daughter's behavior. She did whatever her friend did like running down the hall at the hotel, yelling and laughing all the while. Furthermore, because he doesn't listen to his parents at all, she didn't listen to us either. How would you handle that? We are really good friends with his parents, but they really don't seem to parent the same we do or ...

Kathy Bradley - Cicada song

A tractor, a big tractor, its diesel motor droning from across a distant field. That's what it sounded like. Or a box fan, turned on high, held in place by a window sash pulled down tight on its metal frame and blowing out into the hot summer night to create a draft for the rest of the open windows in the house. That's what it sounded like. Or the jet engine of a DC-10 making its final approach to Hartsfield, its shadow an immense gray bird falling over the cars on I-75. That, too, is what it sounded ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - The influence of great parenting

Where would we be without parents? Well, without parents, we wouldn't "be" at all. In creation, God premeditated to continuously populate the earth by the procreative union of husband and wives.

Holli Deal Bragg - Here’s why I was arrested

As police reporter for the Statesboro Herald, I type thousands of arrests that go in the paper every year. I've joked about putting my own name in the paper, though I was confident I would never commit a crime that would require doing so. I still do not feel as if I committed a crime, but I was arrested Monday morning.

What's on my Mind with Holli Deal Bragg - Trail ride down Memory Lane

The sweet scent of honeysuckle tickled my nose as I ducked under a tree limb. I relaxed to the sway of ol' BJ's easy stride as we meandered around pine trees, over fallen logs, across fire breaks and over small hills.

John Bressler - The death of Osama bin Laden

The death of one terrorist tells us a lot about ourselves. There will be those who say, "Who cares?" Others may respond, "Retaliation is not an answer." Possibly some may ask, "Won't this result in more terrorist attacks?"

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Help out in planning downtown's future

One of the "complaints" that I hear consistently is from people who live in the county and work and/or have property - commercial or residential - in the city of Statesboro. They feel they have no say in the governmental affairs of the city, i.e., they cannot vote in city elections even though they have a legitimate and vested interest in the continued success of the city.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Make May a month of fun times

While children and daffodils proudly showed off their Easter outfits, April quietly slipped away and May emerged. The end of another school year is upon us, with tests, parties, graduation, and shredded quizzes fast approaching. I hope you made this the best school year ever, with lots of family time squeezed in between studying and homework. Finish the month with fun family memories by celebrating the holidays below or creating your own unique festivities.

John Bressler - Accept His sacrifice and live life accordingly

I was talking to a friend, who happens to be a physicist, during choir practice and got on the subject of the infinity of space when the choir director looked at us and said, "If you don't shut up and sing, I will pray that God punishes you … a lot." We lost our train of thought. I do remember that we agreed driving through Texas is a lot like infinity. I also remembered that I read a blurb on the computer that said, "Google knows everything!" This morning, I went to Google and asked, "What must I know?"

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Parents of the past had it more right

I'm reasonably certain that my parents never used the term "John's needs." Since having this thought, I've asked a handful of folks my age, "Do you think your parents ever talked about your needs and how to best meet them?"

Technically, Georgia Southern is still a half-game behind Elon in the Southern Conference standings.

Brain Food with Ken Keller - Develop a plan to grow top-line revenue

Developed by the Technical College System of Georgia and the Georgia Department of Economic Development, Manufacturing Appreciation Week (MAW) is a time to recognize manufacturers around the state who demonstrate corporate responsibility, economic impact on Georgia, and workforce excellence.

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.

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.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - Three cool ways to enjoy summer watermelon

Where there's watermelon, there's usually a good time. They instantly take a beach trip or picnic to the next level. Georgia may be the Peach State, but we're also among the leading five states in the U.S. that consistently produce watermelons.

On fruit production, the Jesus way

"Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing … But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted! When you produce much fruit, you are my true disciples. This brings great glory to my Father." (John 15:5-8)
