Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Enjoy warmth, green of March

After the bizarre winter we've had, it seems fitting that Spring would burst forth in beauty, long before the calendar announces its arrival. Take advantage of springtime weather and make fun, creative memories for family and loved ones. Have picnics, fly kites, and go fishing. While observing the grass and buds exhibit all shades and hues of green, turn your world St. Patty's green with green milkshakes and green tea; green eggs and green grits; green broccoli, beans, celery and peas. Watch for leprechauns and new blossoms, each day in March, and enjoy some of these bizarre, but ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - God is solution to worry and fear in us all

Surely no one ever served as a better role model for Christians, other than the Lord Jesus himself, than the apostle Paul.

Holli Deal Bragg - Misfit moms and deadbeat dads

When a woman recently asked that I write a column about deadbeat dads, my first reaction was that I had no experience with the topic. My father was an excellent provider, loving parent, and great teacher.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - University Tire combining 2 stores into 1

I think the natural inclination of most people is to think that a business is in trouble when it closes one of its stores, offices, or outlets. Given the times that we are in, that would be a reasonable assumption, but not always a correct one.

Kathy Bradley - It's not spring, but yard work sure feels like it

It is not spring. One look at the calendar confirms it, but on this Saturday morning you could fool anybody. The branch is ringing with overlapping bird calls and the sky is baby blanket blue. The breeze is so slight as to not seem a breeze at all, but something like the close breath of a lover. There is no resisting the pull.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Let God help with your parenting

I agree with the person who said, "If I'd known grandkids were going to be this much fun, I'd have had them first!" But that's not the way it works, is it?! The children come first, and then the grandchildren. And rearing our children right helps insure that our grandchildren will turn out well.

John Bressler - Why don't we listen to the easy message the Lord sends us?

There is a great beach in Sarasota, Florida, called Siesta Key, covered with what the locals call "sugar" sand. Just like the word implies, the sand is so soft that you feel you're walking on powder. At the north end, the road turns off to the right, unless you are wealthy enough to own a piece of Gulf-front property, where tourists and home folks are treated to some very tasty burgers and fries, a knock-down drag-out ice cream parlor and high-priced beach wear with some funky odds and ends every vacationer just has to have.

Holli Deal Bragg - The wonderful freedom of getting your drivers license

My cell phone sang out, letting me know I had a text message. "Sarah passed her driving test!!" a friend crowed.

John Bressler - How does God teach the mysteries of life?

When I began school - that was the time when my folks slowed the car to a crawl and tossed me out in front of a first grade teacher and drove off very quickly - I thought that my class always met in the clothes closet. I quickly found out that I couldn't see very well and sat at the front in order to read the chalkboard and although I could read, I occasionally read with some difficulty. I have a tad of aixelsyd, or is that dyslexia?

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Tell us about Bulloch's great young leaders

Last year, the Statesboro Herald conducted the first ever search to identify 20 Bulloch County residents under the age of 40 that are making a mark with professional success and community involvement. By all accounts, it proved to be a very good way of recognizing those individuals under 40 who give of their time and resources to make Statesboro and Bulloch County a better place to live.

Holli Deal Bragg - Who says there’s not a Bigfoot?

When I was a child, I was a student in a program called Quest that taught me to think outside the box. A very special teacher, Anne Edwards, made the course fun. I will never forget her asking us to walk as if we were wading through peanut butter as we lined up to leave the classroom one day.

My Take with Matt Yogus - NFL: Not enough cash to go around

Before America even had a chance to realize that the Green Bay Packers won the Super Bowl, the news filled itself with NFL labor negotiations, talk of a possible pro football strike and a whole lot of jabber about who's right and who's wrong.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Happy kids get old-fashioned parenting

As the old parenting point of view fell out of fashion beginning in the late 1960s, the vernacular that accompanied it all but completely disappeared. Today's parents don't say to their children the sorts of things parents said to children in the 1950s and before, things like "You're acting too big for your britches again, young man."

Kathy Bradley - A mimosa in time

What is this? A mimosa tree? Its slender branches are curved in an arc out over the ditch. Its fingerling leaves are dangling over my head. Its barkless trunk is all but hidden among the grapevines and pine trees and scrub oaks. I have walked by this very spot hundreds of times, driven by it thousands of times. How could I have never noticed a mimosa tree?

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.
