Holli Deal Bragg - True friendship and memories never fade

Having been on "the outside looking in" recently, I learned a valuable lesson. Time may change a lot of things, but it doesn't change true friendship, it doesn't change memories, and it doesn't change history.

My Take with Matt Yogus - A different kind of Signing Day at GSU

There was just something different about this year's Georgia Southern football recruiting class.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - 'Wedding Walk' another good economic sign

Sometimes, it's all about having fun, and from what I can tell, this year's Statesboro Bride Wedding Walk was a ton of fun for those that attended and those who staged the event, as well.

Brain Food with Ken Keller - Do you have a plan to bring in new clients?

A recent survey stated that the single biggest challenge business owners face today is getting new business. Put another way, the issue is growing top-line revenue through the acquisition of new clients.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Be a polar bear for February

Wow - what a winter we've had already! Use the short month of February to make enough warm memories to last throughout the remaining days of winter. Pretend every day is Valentine's Day and write sweet, mushy sentiments to your honeys daily and give lots of treats and surprises throughout the month. Along with Valentine's Day, add these celebrations to your calendar for special family time memories.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Treaty pushes Creeks out of Georgia

In 1770, Augusta-based Creek Indian traders informed the Royal Governor of Georgia's staff that the Creek Indian "Head Men" were anxious to settle their outstanding debts that had accrued since 1761 by giving up a large portion of their tribal hunting grounds.

John Bressler - The wonders of the Henderson Library never cease

It's early in the semester and I am standing on the wrong side of a very large glass partition separating the Henderson Library foyer, lobby, entrance - or "the way in," as we locals like to say - from the first floor. On the other side is a plethora - or pot-full - of students trying to get to my assigned class room. I am now writing on the glass with a large erasable marker, "Come to the second floor, take the far elevator or the stairs, come back down to the first floor and follow me to room 1300." This is a ...

Tommy Palmer's Sports Comment - UGA basketball rebounds

Coach Mark Fox was hired to be the new Basketball Coach at The University of Georgia almost two years ago, and most Georgia boosters at the hiring said, "Mark Who?" Now, most of the state's basketball fans can tell you who Fox is, and that the up-and-coming Bulldog basketball team is making giant strides in a short period of time.

Tommy Palmer's Sports Comment - Verbal commitments are just that!

I find it quite interesting that every College football fan in the nation gets all fired up about verbal commitments from High School football players. After all, over the past few years I have seen many prepsters change their minds on signing day, much to the dismay of old Home State University.

Holli Deal Bragg - Living life in a simple and uncluttered way

The house was an old farmhouse, grayed with age, rusty tin roof, and absolutely fascinating.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - East Georgia ER? Yep, there's an 'app' for that

If you love technology, particularly cell phone technology, then you already know that phone 'apps,' as they are commonly referred to, are one of the tsunamis in technology development.

Kathy Bradley - Winter, like everything, has its moments

Ice hung off the eaves of the carport like jagged dragon teeth in a preschooler's drawing of scary. Stiff and unresponsive to the wind that came rushing across the field and crying like a banshee, the ice-covered limbs of the sycamore tree could have been the dragon's claws, sharp and pointed and crooked at awkward angles. Standing in the doorway, huddled inside my overcoat, I would have welcomed a quick puff of the dragon's fire breath - just enough to break the chill until I could get into the car.

John Bressler - Isn't it great to be Scottish?

Last week, members and guests of the Scottish Heritage Society of Southeast Georgia held their annual Robert Burns Supper and heard bagpipes, ate haggis, toasted lads and lassies and were knocked off their chairs by speaker Sonny Dixon, WTOC anchor, international prize winner for broadcasting excellence and one fine Scots-Irish descendant. While I can't remember all of his great jokes, I could at least remember a few he might have told. "Hey! I just met a piper with a wooden leg named Smith." "Really! What did he call his other leg?"

Living with Children with John Rosemond: A brief list of today's parenting problems

From the I'm Sorry to Have to Tell You Department: Parents who say they want to raise kids who "think for themselves" are not being exactly truthful. It's a nice and very democratic thing to say, for sure, but let's face it, folks: You want your kids to think like you do. For example: If you're a liberal, you want your kids to be liberals when they grow up. Right? Right! The same is true of conservatives, libertarians, people of faith, people of no faith and people with COEXIST bumper stickers on their cars. Furthermore, that ...

Where do you fit in the scheme?

It's last Monday morning and according to the weather report - and somebody got it right this time - it's raining very hard with thunder and lightning, and it's nice to be inside looking out. This afternoon, we have a 100 percent chance of very heavy rain, high winds and a get-ready-to-hunker-down warning, which I will do my best to follow the directions. One of my colleagues has just told me we're not supposed to have this kind of stuff this late in the year. Since he teaches Algebra, what does he know? He knows this: it is ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Gratitude is timeless for Christians

Thanksgiving is more than a single day - it is an attitude about everything in life. Life is made up of past, present and future. The perspective we have on each helps determine our happiness and effectiveness. So, Christians can be grateful for ...

Living with Children with John Rosemond: The understated power of "I told you so"

Q: My 6-year-old son argues with me about everything I tell him to do. He comes up with reason after reason why he shouldn't have to or can't, why it's unfair or why, at the least, I should help him. I think he's got some argument disorder. Is there such a thing? In any case, it's beginning to drive me nuts, up a wall, and over the edge. Is there a solution?

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk: Keepin' it classic with Thanksgiving traditions

When it comes to Thanksgiving, I'm a traditionalist at heart. So when I hear modern day chefs and food personalities begin to talk about "turning up the volume on old classics" and "reinventing grandma's recipes," the first thought that comes to mind is the old philosophy, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." On the other hand, I'm always open to trying new dishes and getting creative in the kitchen, but Thanksgiving wouldn't be Thanksgiving without a few classic staples like pumpkin pie, roasted turkey and cranberry sauce from the can (and football and ...

We can choose the gift of God

Almost all old timers - I do not mean Alzheimer's or me - remember when they had a class where the teacher brought up a philosophical exercise about choices. Usually, it had to do with a sinking ship, one lifeboat and too many survivors in shark-filled waters.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Over-involved parents ruin everything

Why are young adult children emancipating so much later than they did in 1970, when the average age of male emancipation (independent living, paying one's own bills) was 21? Why do significant numbers of college professors and even employers complain about parents of young adult students/employees confronting them over, respectively, bad grades and workplace issues? Why have reduced class sizes and increased per-pupil expenditures not resulted in higher academic achievement levels? Why is the mental health of today's kids so poor when compared with that of children in the 1960s and before? Why have school phobia, test ...

Kathy Bradley: The light in autumn

There are so many ways to measure the movement of the year. The temperature of the breeze that comes wafting across the field, the color of the vegetation along the fence rows, the birdsong or lack thereof. Each of them in one way or another announces the passage of time from one season to the next. But breezes and briars and birds can be deceptive. Wet summer winds can demand a sweater. Rain can make an autumn ditch run like spring. Birds can get confused.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Let us praise God openly and naturally

David, the second king of God's special people, Israel, wrote a psalm of praise for his deliverance from his enemies, including Saul, the ruler he had succeeded: "For this I will praise you, O LORD, among the nations, and sing praises to your name" (2 Samuel 22:50).
