Parenting advice with John Rosemond - Take control of your 'monkey'

Q: Our 4-year old is fairly well behaved but her best friend is definitely not. We just got back from a weekend trip with that family, and I was constantly embarrassed at my daughter's behavior. She did whatever her friend did like running down the hall at the hotel, yelling and laughing all the while. Furthermore, because he doesn't listen to his parents at all, she didn't listen to us either. How would you handle that? We are really good friends with his parents, but they really don't seem to parent the same we do or ...

Kathy Bradley - Cicada song

A tractor, a big tractor, its diesel motor droning from across a distant field. That's what it sounded like. Or a box fan, turned on high, held in place by a window sash pulled down tight on its metal frame and blowing out into the hot summer night to create a draft for the rest of the open windows in the house. That's what it sounded like. Or the jet engine of a DC-10 making its final approach to Hartsfield, its shadow an immense gray bird falling over the cars on I-75. That, too, is what it sounded ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - The influence of great parenting

Where would we be without parents? Well, without parents, we wouldn't "be" at all. In creation, God premeditated to continuously populate the earth by the procreative union of husband and wives.

Holli Deal Bragg - Here’s why I was arrested

As police reporter for the Statesboro Herald, I type thousands of arrests that go in the paper every year. I've joked about putting my own name in the paper, though I was confident I would never commit a crime that would require doing so. I still do not feel as if I committed a crime, but I was arrested Monday morning.

What's on my Mind with Holli Deal Bragg - Trail ride down Memory Lane

The sweet scent of honeysuckle tickled my nose as I ducked under a tree limb. I relaxed to the sway of ol' BJ's easy stride as we meandered around pine trees, over fallen logs, across fire breaks and over small hills.

John Bressler - The death of Osama bin Laden

The death of one terrorist tells us a lot about ourselves. There will be those who say, "Who cares?" Others may respond, "Retaliation is not an answer." Possibly some may ask, "Won't this result in more terrorist attacks?"

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Help out in planning downtown's future

One of the "complaints" that I hear consistently is from people who live in the county and work and/or have property - commercial or residential - in the city of Statesboro. They feel they have no say in the governmental affairs of the city, i.e., they cannot vote in city elections even though they have a legitimate and vested interest in the continued success of the city.

While children and daffodils proudly showed off their Easter outfits, April quietly slipped away and May emerged.

I hope you made this the best school year ever, with lots of family time squeezed in between studying and homework. Finish the month with fun family memories by celebrating the holidays below or creating your own unique festivities.

John Bressler - Accept His sacrifice and live life accordingly

I was talking to a friend, who happens to be a physicist, during choir practice and got on the subject of the infinity of space when the choir director looked at us and said, "If you don't shut up and sing, I will pray that God punishes you … a lot." We lost our train of thought. I do remember that we agreed driving through Texas is a lot like infinity. I also remembered that I read a blurb on the computer that said, "Google knows everything!" This morning, I went to Google and asked, "What must I know?"

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Parents of the past had it more right

I'm reasonably certain that my parents never used the term "John's needs." Since having this thought, I've asked a handful of folks my age, "Do you think your parents ever talked about your needs and how to best meet them?"

Kathy Bradley - Seeing two in the sky, on land

The sky last night was a bolt of dark wash denim, the selvage hugging one horizon, the fold the other. And the stars, oh, so many stars, did not twinkle so much as glow, did not shine so much as radiate, radiate like ice crystals with a kind of negative energy. I lay on my back on the deck, the boards like extra ribs pushing into me at regular intervals, and stared up into the darkness interrupted only occasionally by airplanes so small they could have been fireflies.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Learning more about God from Jesus' parables

One of Jesus' favorite methods of teaching was the use of parables, described by someone long ago as "an earthly story with a heavenly meaning." The parable of the "Prodigal Son" is one of his most instructive about the nature of the heavenly father.

What is our purpose in life?

I believe it was back in 1939 when a very popular author, James Thurber, wrote a short novel about an unusual man he named "Walter Mitty." It became so well read that it was produced for Broadway, made into a movie around 1947 - which I remember watching - and remade in 2013. If you're one of those purists, I guess you won't like my position, but I really liked Danny Kaye and Ben Stiller, who played the role of Walter Mitty. I suppose my reason for being so attached to the character is that, like many others (I hope ...

Kathy Bradley: Little black dresses don't prepare you for everything — especially not tragedies

It is a fashion rule that has been around so long, it is, like a politician, known by its initials: LBD. Little black dress. Every woman has to have one. Young or old or in-between, Southerner or Yankee, debutante or farm wife. You can dress it up or dress it down. A well-made LBD in a classic style will last forever, and you will be prepared to accept any invitation.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Childhood: Good citizens begin at home

A major U.S. newspaper recently ran a piece detailing all the ways children benefit from doing chores. Well, not all the ways. They failed to mention the most important benefit: Chores, properly managed, teach citizenship values.

Remembering radio in the 1940s

When I was a little over 5 years of age, I remember lying on the floor in front of our big old Zenith radio listening to whatever just happened to be on that evening. The adults liked the news and stuff like: "Allen's Alley," "George Burns and Gracie Allen," while Shirley Jo and I loved "Little Orphan Annie," "The Lone Ranger," "Superman" and the comedy programs. I'll never forget that one evening when President F.D. Roosevelt announced the bombing of Pearl Harbor, "A day that will live in infamy!" It was only a few weeks later when ...

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Cherish every minute of May
