Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - What happened to the Victory Lane project

In February 2007, I wrote about an ambitious development in Cobbtown called Victory Lane. Let me spend a few words to briefly reacquaint you with that project.

My Take with Matt Yogus - So how good is this GSU offense?

That new-car smell has worn off a little bit, and Jeff Monken's triple-option offense has gotten enough miles under its belt three games into the season to give us at least a pretty good idea of what kind of team the Georgia Southern Eagles have in the first year of the third new era of the last decade.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - God is always 'on the job!'

"The Lord was really lookin' out for me." That was my comment, made to a fairly new friend the other day as we visited over a cup of coffee, about a recent good turn of events. Bill, who isn't a practicing Christian, has heard me make similar observations about God's providence a number of times in the months I had known him. Maybe like you, I've made this particular one often in my life as a dependent child of God.

John Bressler - The forces of nature and God

Julie and I decided it was time, after about three or four years, to clean the windows and put up the screens for the approach of Fall and the cooler weather. Actually, Julie made the decision and it took me a bit to get motivated. Fear is a great motivator, by the way.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - How many days in a year?

The term 'year' comes, surprisingly enough, from the Saxon word "jear," meaning seasons. The ancient Saxons observed just two seasons: Summer, when the days were longer than the nights; and Winter, when the nights were longer than the days.

Holli Deal Bragg - A peace garden at Ground Zero?

Once in a while, a mysterious envelope will appear on my desk. The envelope is always typed, and the missive inside is always unsigned.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Snap Fitness offers another workout choice

It's no secret, "we" have a weight problem. So whenever America has a problem, the entrepreneurs get busy.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Orgins of our named months

It's hard to believe it's September, the ninth month of the year, already. But when the names of our calendar months were first established, September was the seventh month. Here are some details about the origin of the names of our months.

Kathy Bradley - Nothing better than a summer evening

Henry James wrote that the two most beautiful words in the English language are "summer afternoon." Henry James did not live in south Georgia. If he had, his opinion, in my opinion, would have been somewhat different.

John Bressler - What are you reading from the 'banned book' list?

I always thought the word "AARP" was a sound made by a dog with a lisp until I began to receive my own copy of the retired person's newspaper, which I have found to be informative and interesting. On page 39 of the last edition, there is a headline, "Banned!", covering just a few of the many books either banned, burned or blacklisted. To my surprise and dismay, I have been found guilty of reading over half of the books on the list, but for the life of me, don't feel embarrassed or ashamed.

Our View - City should not approve memorandum with church

Statesboro city council members will consider this morning whether to approve a memorandum of understanding with First Baptist Church, in which the city would provide labor for extending a 10-inch water line from the intersection of Hill and Oak Streets to the new church sanctuary.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Jimmy John's enters Boro's sandwich race

This is the third week in a row that I will be writing about restaurants. If I thought that the redundancy of topic might bother you all, I wouldn't do it. But, I know for a fact that Bulloch County residents love their restaurants, so I today I am going to introduce you to the newest kid on the block, Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwich Shop.

John Bressler - Thanks for use of the amazing GSU library

It's that time of the year when I get the privilege of thanking Dean Bede Mitchell and the extraordinary staff of the GSU Henderson Library for their courtesy and professionalism toward me and my students. As a long ago graduate of the almost defunct Dewey Decimal System and the card catalogue that I would drop on the floor very regularly, I am amazed at the online systems allowing anyone trained in the art of research to scan the known world for information.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Child's anxiety may be caused by sudden changes

Q: Since our daughter - now 2 years old - was born, we have lived with my parents. Being the first and only grandchild, she has been the center of attention. Several months ago, our son was born and we moved into our own home. Almost immediately, our daughter began pulling her hair out, sometimes in handfuls. Doctors have said she does it for attention and we should just ignore it. That's what we've done but it has not stopped. It's now gotten so bad that I've cut her hair because the side she pulls has gotten so ...

Kathy Bradley - Imagine that!

I am lying on my back. The darkness outside the window has a green tinge to it, as though the night has mildewed. If there is a moon or any stars, they are blocked by the limp branches of the mimosa trees and the shed in the backyard - neither of which I can see, both of which I know are there. Also, there is the clothesline where my mother hangs the wet sheets and towels that flap and flap and flap and come back inside dry.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Children may pick up sassiness from television shows

Q: The "sassiness" that I have heard so much about from my friends started a few months ago with my 5-year-old daughter. She will say things to me that I actually find myself tongue-tied on how or what to say to correct her. Sometimes, she apologizes, which tells me she knows she's talking disrespectfully to me. What do you think about 10 minutes of timeout for this sort of thing?

God is in control of our lives

I was reading a document recently about a man whose wife committed suicide. From all that he said, she was lovely, talented, intelligent and extraordinary in so many ways, but had a well-diagnosed illness that the best counseling couldn't cure.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Child should outgrow head-banging

Q: When he throws a tantrum, which happens several times a day, my 20-month-old often gets down on the floor and starts banging his head. Worried that he may hurt himself, I pick him up and comfort him. I know that reinforces head-banging, but I don't know what else to do. Making matters worse, a school counselor friend of mine tells me that head-banging is something lots of autistic kids do. I'm at a loss.

Kathy Bradley - Why did it have to be snakes?

The snake was 5 feet long - exactly 5 feet long. I know this because I measured the skin he left in the hosta bed right outside my back door; the skin he left in a soft pile, like dirty clothes he expected his mother to pick up and toss in the laundry; the skin I picked up with a broom handle and stretched across the cool concrete carport, careful not to touch it, because, well, you just never know.

Where is your treasure?

It must have been around 40 years ago when this incident happened. Julie told me that I could write about what had happened because her mom would have had a good laugh abut it.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Potty training is a process

Q: My 26-month-old daughter will go on the potty happily every hour when told - we're using your "potty bell," and it's working extremely well - and produces every time. As a result, she's having very few, if any, wee incidents. However, we still have to catch her before an impending bowel movement - she usually begins releasing gas - and rush to get her to the potty. She will sit and poop on the potty, but at day care (three days a week), they can't watch her every second; therefore, she often poops in her pants there. How can ...

The Fourth of July is that time during the year when so many of the things I hold dear culminate - summertime, family, fireworks, all-American food, tradition, pride.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Change is possible only through God

A regular perusal of news outlets is enough to show that our world is in a mess, to put it mildly. Of course, this is nothing new. Political agendas, personal desires and worldly viewpoints always have made improving human relationships an uphill battle.
