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.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Child is literally running in circles

Q: Our 12-year-old daughter seems driven to run in circles. For years now, every day, often many times a day, she will suddenly start jogging in a big circle around the family room or anywhere else in the house she is when the urge strikes. She stops when one of us tells her to stop, but a bit later she's off again! We've sent her outside to run many times, but that doesn't help either. While this may sound like a minor problem, it is so very strange and it's most certainly driving us nuts. Help!

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Let boys be boys, squash the bugs!

Q: I feel silly for asking, but what is your position on children killing bugs? I do not know if this is just 4-year-old boy behavior, but my son seems rather fascinated with bug-killing. He is, by the way, very kind with our dog and other pets. I have explained that bugs have families too and need to return to them. Is this a mountain I should die on?

Singing songs of the good news

About four years ago, comedian Steve Martin, who is also one great banjo player, wrote an interesting piece of music, "Atheists don't have no songs." Yes, I know that's a double negative. According to Martin, their hymnbook is only one page and if the name of God is there, it's spelled with a lower case "g." Go figure.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Depend on God's help to overcome trials and sins

Randy Becton is an inspiring Christian writer and speaker who lives in Texas. In a small collection of Christian lifestyle essays entitled "Chosen Path," he has included an article on God's victory over our weakness and failure. Here's a brief excerpt:

Kathy Bradley: Off-road and cross country

From inside the house I can hear both sets of wind chimes clanging, harmonizing from opposite eaves, dancing madly like Russian Cossacks. The sun is high and the light is white. There is no good reason, no reason to stay inside.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Give “special tantrums” a “special place”

Q: How do you stop tantrums in a 3-year-old? My daughter never went through the "terrible twos" but began throwing wild tantrums shortly after her third birthday. This coincided with the birth of a sibling - a boy - but she's very affectionate and helpful toward him, so I don't know if there's any connection. I've tried everything I can think of to prevent and stop the tantrums - things I've seen recommended in various places - but nothing has worked. She throws one whenever she doesn't get her way. Help!

Only one path to the true God

"All men, by different paths, seek the same God." Years ago, when I first heard this phrase, I thought it sounded pretty plausible, intelligent and seemed to have a ring of inclusion for those trying to make sense out of the many religions in this old world of ours. I don't think it does. I'll get to this in a few minutes.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Cut stress and drop parenting magazines

Proposed: The primary reason so many of today's mothers are so very stressed by child rearing - something their grandmothers, for the most part, approached fairly nonchalantly - is because they do something their grandmothers did not do: they read parenting columns, magazines, and books. And yes, I'm well aware of the irony here.

Change can be a good thing

It's Monday, January 12th, and the first day of classes here at old East Georgia State College. I've been preparing for today since the last semester ended about a month ago. I keep re-reading my old notes to find out if I had left anything out, need to emphasize this point or that section and just wanting to make the course better. I have come to the conclusion that the course has been revamped to the max and if anything needs to be fixed or improved, it's got to be me. It's got to be me ...

Lead rational thought with understanding of God's will

Human beings are creatures of rational thought and ideas. We are able to plan, and follow those plans, because of our ability to think concretely. Just over 50 years ago, university professor Dallas Willard said that "we live at the mercy of our ideas" ("Hearing God: Developing a Conversational Relationship with God," 1963). A few examples from the pages of Scripture showing the practical application of this statement might be helpful to us in understanding his meaning.

Five easy steps for teaching obedience

Who are the happier campers in a workplace setting: the employees who (a) obey the rules, follow the procedures and voice any complaints respectfully so that the entire workplace is not disrupted, or (b) disobey the rules at every possible opportunity, deliberately fail to follow procedures and disrupt the workplace with frequent and often subversive complaints?
