John Bressler - Electronics confuse us men

While many already know this, there are those few who have heard and yet are skeptic: God has given men a sense of direction so keen and wise that they do not need a map or mathematics to find their way … to things they really need.

Kathy Bradley - Haul back and let it loose

DeleteMy godson the football coach isn't having a very good year. Actually, he personally is having a very good year (He got married in January to a wonderful young woman he takes every opportunity to introduce as "my smokin' hot wife."); it's his football team that can't seem to get it together.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: We can conquer all fears

Fear comes in many forms and disguises. It goes by different names, such as "discouragement," "worry," "despair," "hopelessness" and "depression." We experience it in every conceivable circumstance, even in our relationship with God. Some fear is good, because it may save us from great harm: the fear of falling, of fire, of hell, etc. But even these "good" fears can become irrational and debilitating. There is the fear of failure, of loneliness, even the fear of being afraid.

John Bressler -- Are you just an accident? No!

Dr. Wesley Weatherhead, a great theologian and pastor, said, "There are two days in every life. The first day is the day you are born and the next day is when you find out why." I wish I had said that. I remember vividly when I was asking a class about their purpose and if they were no more than a breath of air, a passing fancy or even an accident. As I waited for some response, I noticed a young man making a call on his cell phone. I asked, "What in the world are you doing?" He spoke ...

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Leaves, fruit and reptiles

At last ... the coolness in the air gives us the feeling that autumn truly has arrived. Savor each beautiful, crisp morning and celebrate the new season. Take in a football game or two; look for pumpkins and scarecrows; attend a fall festival or fair parade; and look for every shade and hue of orange imaginable. And, as if the adventures above weren't enough to keep your family busy, try some of these zany holidays.

John Bressler - Sorry, I don't take surveys

Proverbs 22:6 (with my scribal insert), "Teach a child in the way he or she should go, and when he or she is old will not depart from it." I would like to say, "Teach your kids all you can when they are little and quit worrying. They'll be just fine."

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Patriots hated, feared Coffell

Colonel Joseph Coffell (or Scophol) was said by Patriot General William Moultrie to have been an "illiterate, stupid, and noisy blockhead." Stupid though he may have been, he certainly gave them a great deal of trouble.

Our Views: Council members owe citizens explanation for using taxpayer money

The Statesboro City Council essentially fired City Manager Shane Haynes Tuesday night. Perhaps they did him a favor by calling for his resignation, which qualifies him for a healthy severance payout, or they saved themselves from another expensive lawsuit.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Don't need flood insurance? Check the map

Much to the dismay of many local residents, the federal government has lowered the "flood" boom, so-to-speak. With the implementation of the new FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) flood zone maps on August 5th, many residents are finding that their property and homes are now classified as being in a special flood hazard area.

Kathy Bradley - Chant for more rain gets louder

My mother is a seamstress. I grew up sitting on the floor at her feet playing with cards of buttons and seam binding, arranging dozens of spools of thread in prism arcs, studiously examining pictures and descriptions on pattern envelopes. It should come as no surprise, then, that images of the natural world often come to me in dressmaker's terms.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Helicopter parenting helps no one

A second-grade teacher writes: "I teach in a very competitive school where parents have developed a 'mob mentality' for bullying administrators and teachers. They have gone beyond helicopter parenting to Apache Blackhawk parenting."

Kathy Bradley: Lennon and McCartney and Grannie

A flock of blackbirds covers the field. Two hundred, maybe. Silent and still before rising, as though at the lift of some unseen maestro's baton, into the air in one loud flap like a bleached sheet on a clothesline. I watch and listen and shiver. Blackbirds. Sign of cold weather.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Pull-ups are permissible in special cases

Q: My 23-month-old son does well with potty training when we're at home. We use a "potty bell" and he goes every 90 minutes or so. When we're away from home, however, he seems clueless. He pees in his car seat about 5 minutes into a trip and simply will not use a potty anywhere but at our home or at my mother's (she watches him one day a week at her place). Would pull-ups be a bad thing to use when we leave the house?

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Can you sleep when the wind blows?

Mr. Jones, the owner of a small farm on the coast, advertised for a hired hand. But people were hesitant about working on farms in the area out of fear of the terribly destructive storms that so often threatened buildings, crops and the lives of both people and animals. Consequently, the farmer found it almost impossible to hire anyone to help him with the work.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk: Living the dream through cupcakes and coffee

It's mid-morning on a sunny Saturday, after a satisfying brunch and visit to my local farmers' market. Dressed completely casually with nowhere to be, I stroll along East Main Street in downtown Statesboro to find an inviting sidewalk chalkboard and the doors open wide at CAKE Bakery and Cool Beanz Espresso Bar. Upon entering, I discover much more than cupcakes and caffeine. Here two kindred spirits - one culinary artist and one head coffee geek - have joined forces to make their dreams a reality.

Column: Impacts of childhood obesity

Many people are uncomfortable talking about childhood obesity, especially when it comes to their own children. However, ignoring it, or thinking a child will slim down as he or she grows taller, can make things worse.

Column: It's time for action

There's been a lot of talk lately about what the Statesboro City Council is going to do about the terrible tragedy that happened at Rude Rudy's a couple of weeks ago. And we've heard a lot of opinions on what the city "should do" and rampant speculation as to why the council won't do it.

Living with Children with John Rosemond - It's your child's homework, not yours

Q: I homeschooled my oldest, an 8-year-old boy, until this year. He started third grade in public school in August. As a homeschooling mom, I was not a micromanager and don't want to become one now, but the school virtually insists that parents help with homework. I want him to be independent. What are your thoughts on this?

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - He only did it once: the sacrifice of Jesus

According to what may be an apocryphal story, shared by my friend Alan Smith, two visitors were touring the U. S. Naval facility in Annapolis, Maryland. As they followed the tour guide, they noticed several students on their hands and knees examining a courtyard with pencils and clipboards in hand.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: September splendor awaits those with patience

Sweltering temperatures soaring in the 90-degree range makes one wonder if autumn will ever return below the Mason-Dixon line, but with prayers and patience, Southerners too will soon enjoy the splendor of September fall days. Beautiful hues of orange and yellow and red lay hidden until the shorter days of September.
