Kathy Bradley - Cotton plant prophet

I first noticed it on Sunday - a sycamore leaf, the size of a spread hand and the color of cured tobacco, was stuck in the stems of a cotton plant at the edge of the driveway. Surprisingly, it was still there Wednesday morning, having withstood a couple of days of stiff wind and one day of sustained rain. Obviously, I was meant to take note. I got out of the car and walked to the edge of the field for a closer look.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - 'O little town of Bethlehem'

Sometimes we can only wonder at the working of God, and the way he chooses to bring about his ends. It is true that "God moves in a mysterious way, his wonders to perform."

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - War creates 2 currencies

By 1850, America's supplies of silver had been nearly exhausted as the mother lodes of silver ore discovered out west had been mined dry. The majority of existing American silver dollars were being melted down and sold back to the mint at greatly inflated prices in order to provide it with silver bullion with which it could mint new coins.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Stress, anxiety turning smart parents dumb

Devon Corneal is an attorney and a writer. Her essay, "Can You Hear Me Now? Why Parents Can't Get Kids to Listen," was published online by The Huffington Post (Nov. 3, 2011). In it, Ms. Corneal carps about her children not listening to her. She identifies the three children in question as "a son, a stepson, and the manchild I married." She refers to them as "boys."

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Some light on horizon for Jenkins County

For the most part, I have reported on our local economy over the last three years. However, something that has continued to be a concern of mine during that time period has been the plight of our neighbors in Jenkins County.

Bulloch Geneology with Roger Allen - Brannens take 4 paths to Bulloch

Ireland's ancient "septs" were very similar to Scottish "clans." Those groups from which the Bulloch County Brannen's are descended include the "O Braonain" and "Mac Branain" family groupings. The term "Mac" designated "the son of" while the term "O" designated "the grandson of" a ruling warrior.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Georgia currency pays soldiers

The colonists in British North American quite naturally expected the British Crown to continue to subsidize them. England's rulers, however, had a different idea: they planned on the colonists making them rich. They figured that if all the colonists had was British money, colonial exports and imports would almost exclusively come from and go to Great Britain.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Rules should come first with your child

John Bressler - Find what God has called you to do

I believe it was Confucius who is reported to have said, "Find a job you love, and you will never work again!" I don't know about you, but this rings so true for me as I always had a job that I couldn't wait to get to, wanted to hang around after work just to look over the place and went home feeling that I had put in a good day.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - What's behind local bank deposit decline?

A couple of weeks ago, I reported some statistics about our local economy which I had compiled for a presentation to Rotary. One of the stats that I found to be the most telling was the bank deposits market share report produced by the FDIC.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Make time for cocoa, cookies

Kathy Bradley - Holy awe and dishpan hands

I am standing at the kitchen window, staring into darkness where only a few minutes before the light had smeared lavender across the horizon like a little girl's first attempts at makeup. It is the night before Thanksgiving, the dishwasher has died and one by one each knife, spoon, spatula, pot, plate, bowl, cup and colander involved in the preparation of my assigned dishes - together with all the dirty glasses and plates and silverware that filled the dishwasher at the time of its demise - must be washed and dried by hand.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Currency first hits Savannah

Americans take their change for granted, and sometimes even consider it a nuisance. This was not the case in the early American colonies. For all intents and purposes, money as we know it didn't exist at all.

John Bressler - The music of God will fill the world

Patrick Costello, probably one of the finest flailing banjo players in the world, has written a very well read and constantly used beginners book entitled, "The How and Tao of Old Time Banjo." He tells a story of a young man who was trying to learn on his own and was overheard practicing by an old man who stopped to listen for awhile. The old man walked over and asked, "Are you trying to play 'Cotton Eye Joe?' Well, if you are, try this." He then took the banjo and did some remarkable picking and then told the young boy ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Learning more about God from Jesus' parables

One of Jesus' favorite methods of teaching was the use of parables, described by someone long ago as "an earthly story with a heavenly meaning." The parable of the "Prodigal Son" is one of his most instructive about the nature of the heavenly father.

What is our purpose in life?

I believe it was back in 1939 when a very popular author, James Thurber, wrote a short novel about an unusual man he named "Walter Mitty." It became so well read that it was produced for Broadway, made into a movie around 1947 - which I remember watching - and remade in 2013. If you're one of those purists, I guess you won't like my position, but I really liked Danny Kaye and Ben Stiller, who played the role of Walter Mitty. I suppose my reason for being so attached to the character is that, like many others (I hope ...

Kathy Bradley: Little black dresses don't prepare you for everything — especially not tragedies

It is a fashion rule that has been around so long, it is, like a politician, known by its initials: LBD. Little black dress. Every woman has to have one. Young or old or in-between, Southerner or Yankee, debutante or farm wife. You can dress it up or dress it down. A well-made LBD in a classic style will last forever, and you will be prepared to accept any invitation.

Remembering radio in the 1940s

When I was a little over 5 years of age, I remember lying on the floor in front of our big old Zenith radio listening to whatever just happened to be on that evening. The adults liked the news and stuff like: "Allen's Alley," "George Burns and Gracie Allen," while Shirley Jo and I loved "Little Orphan Annie," "The Lone Ranger," "Superman" and the comedy programs. I'll never forget that one evening when President F.D. Roosevelt announced the bombing of Pearl Harbor, "A day that will live in infamy!" It was only a few weeks later when ...

Celebrate the beauty of a Statesboro spring with one of the holidays below or create new, unique family festivities. But, whatever the weather, make memories together.
