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.

John Bressler - It's a tough job market out there

I am glad that elections are over for the time being and now all will be waiting for the shoe to drop. By that, I mean it will be put up or shut up time. A huge fact: this voting public may be some of the most informed and motivated as most are far less concerned about the looks and demeanor of a candidate as they are about the credentials and ability each hopefully possesses. To boil this all down, the candidates have made a career choice, the electors have set high standards and all who voted will not be ...

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Give thanks & eat turkey

Use every day this month to appreciate the blessings in your life - family, friends, freedom, beautiful weather, gorgeous autumn colors abounding, delicious harvest foods, and each precious day. Celebrate a season of thankfulness and the celebrations below.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Loyalist Waters revered in Ga.

Kathy Bradley - An exit filled with grace

Bobby Cox sits in the home dugout at Turner Field, arms folded across his belly like a slightly discontented Buddha. It is the bottom of the ninth and the good guys, as Skip Caray used to say, are down 3-2. The coach checks his scorecard, looks down the bench and calls for a pinch hitter.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Langworthy: From Loyalist to Patriot

Edward Langworthy was born in Savannah in 1738. Since he was born only five years after Georgia was settled, it is likely his parents were recruited from debtors' prisons or poorhouses back in London.

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.

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.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - Tips for hosting your own low country boil party

Today is my 31st birthday, which brings to mind one of the best parties I've ever thrown, my Low Country Boil Birthday Bash just a few years ago.

This week, I'll share some easy entertaining tips for hosting ...

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.
