Kathy Bradley - Expectations knotted and tied

The laid-out field on the other side of the pond dam is unrolled like a bolt of ecru lace, knotted and tied into a landscape of bumps and nubs. That which was left to sprout and grow on its own over the spring and summer has died, stems and leaves that once stretched toward the sky now bent into creamy curves back toward the earth. The whole world is the color of toast.

John Bressler - Why the joy of Thanksgiving is so special

I don't remember when I began to realize that there was something special about the celebration we call Thanksgiving. I knew that Thanksgiving began in the Fall when the leaves were changing and there was a chill in the air. I do remember those days in West Virginia when I would walk to school and my breath looked like steam coming from a kettle.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - 'Funny' can also be tragic

Some of the most humorous things in life are also among the most tragic. Many entertainers have made slapstick comedy a staple of their acts. The tragedy is that sometimes the physical and mental effects of alcoholic beverages serve as the basis for the humor.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - A fond farewell to the Trellis Garden Inn

It certainly isn't uncommon to see a business close its doors these days, and it isn't something that I enjoy reporting, but a few people have contacted the Herald saddened by the closing of the Trellis Garden Inn in downtown Statesboro.

Kathy Bradley - Where is thy sting

One by one - purse, briefcase, gym bag - I toss into the car the tangible burdens with which I begin each day. I pause just long enough to watch wide brown sycamore leaves, curled like arthritic hands, scuttle nervously across the yard in response to an asthmatic breeze. Somewhere down the road a diesel engine grinds up a hill and its sound vibrates over empty fields and against my cheeks. It is dawn. It is autumn. It is still.

John Bressler - I am a believer in providence

Very recently, I mentioned goal setting and how important it is to have a direction and a plan for life. This does not mean that every hope is fulfilled and every expectation met. Too many folks would rather believe that life is a crap shoot - the throwing of dice - and that means to rely on the slim possibility that luck will slap them on the head when it's their turn. If that were the case, then preparation for the day is to always have a regimented order when it comes to getting dressed, what must be worn, the specific ...

Bulloch Genealogy with Roger Allen - Rawls settle in Bulloch and Screven

The family name Rawls comes from the "Olde German" name 'Rolf.' This in turn comes from the Viking clan Hrolfr," which translates roughly to '"Fame-Wolf." The Rawls name didn't show up in England until the 13th Century.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Mr. McMillan: 50 years at Howard Lumber

Record unemployment numbers are clearly frightening. They are frightening for those that are looking for a job, and those who are concerned about their job security in a sputtering economy.

John Bressler - See it! Believe it! Achieve it!

Because we have been working on goal setting and thinking about the future and what skills can be applied to give us a fighting chance, it triggered a memory of a particular passage of scripture that can be very controversial: Philippians 2:12, "Work out your salvation with fear and trembling..." Are you telling me that I have to somehow save myself? I don't think so."

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Cleve White is selling Nissan dealership

I think many of you may be surprised to hear that Cleve White, owner of Cleve White Nissan in Statesboro, has sold his dealership. When I spoke with White this past weekend, he confirmed the deal was signed, and as of Nov. 15, he would no longer be the owner of the dealership that he founded 10 years ago.

Kathy Bradley - By water and words

A few Sundays ago, on a luminous October morning, my great-nephew was baptized. Sunshine slanted through the stained glass windows like a sword's swath, stippled the curves of the dark wooden pews with shards of golden light and afforded dust motes a spotlight within which to dance.

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.

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.

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.
