Bulloch History with Roger Allen - States rights: American as apple pie

One of the hottest topics in our current political climate is "States Rights." Members of the American Continental Congress were appointed by their state's governors to guard their state's rights as much as they were to form a union while writing the "Articles Of Confederation."

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Georgia was most loyal colony to Great Britain

In the massive multi-volume history of the United States entitled "The American Nation," which was edited by Albert Bushnell Hart, the story of Georgia's role in the American Revolution is spelled out very clearly.

Old Franklin's North Main site to get a facelift

This will probably sound somewhat negative, but I think you might agree with me regarding my opinion about the northwest corner of the intersection of North Main Street and Northside Drive - the location where Franklins Restaurant operated for so many decades.

John Bressler - So, do you think there are puppies in Heaven?

There are a lot of days that I just sit and think. I used to try to walk and think at the same time but quit after walking into a tree and falling into a ditch. "Did God ever raise a puppy? Was the puppy house-broken or was he just turned loose in the Garden of Eden for Adam and Eve to teach him all the things puppies must learn? Who did most of the cleaning up, Adam or Eve?"

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Timber! Value of forest land sees decline

I have written about real estate a great deal over the last several years. Like everywhere else in the country, Bulloch County and the surrounding area have gone through a boom and now a significant slowdown since 2003.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Disney business model much more than a 'mouse'

On June 22, Ogeechee Tech in conjunction with the Ogeechee Technical College Foundation will host the famed Disney Institute. I have to confess that I did not know there was such a thing until my husband attended the Disney Institute program that was held in Atlanta a month or so ago.

Holli Deal Bragg - BOE should give Portal more respect

Ever hear of a little ol' town called Portal? It's a unique little place. Not a very rich or fancy community, nothing remarkable to look at unless you take into consideration the Carter Turpentine Still or the mural painted on the side of a building commemorating the town's turpentine history.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Soon, you can 'Monkey' around in the Boro

The Market District in Statesboro just keeps chugging along. The latest entrant - Monkey Joe's Parties and Play - an interactive indoor party center filled with an array of giant air-filled play structures, jumps, slides, obstacle courses, developmental games and "wacky" party rooms.

Kathy Bradley - The beauty of looking back at youth as you grow older

A computer hard drive is a lot like a junk drawer. Every so often you have to go in because there is always the chance that, back in the corner with the pennies sticky with Kool-Aid, under the 2-year-old church bulletin and in an envelope decorated with Hello Kitty stickers, you may find the key to the safety deposit box or your mother's engagement ring. Don't ask me why; that's just the way it is.

John Bressler - On vacation in Sarasota, Florida

Where does one go during a short holiday to be unconditionally admired by brilliant, well-mannered and good looking grandchildren? Why, to Sarasota, Florida, of course! There are those little glitches: driving into a truck stop by mistake and having to park between a half dozen 16-wheelers and walking 50 yards to the restaurant. The up-side was that you could get a hot shower and free high-speed hook up. There was the two-hour delay on I-75 due to a nasty accident. Our GPS didn't like our choice of Rt. 301 and kept wanting us to make a U-Turn to get ...

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - First social clubs open in S.E. Georgia

Georgians loved the social life, and very quickly after the founding of the colony began starting clubs and organizations in which they both socialize as well as undertake civic projects to help those less fortunate than they.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Why I'm hopeful about downtown purchase

The residents of Statesboro and Bulloch County are a relatively conservative lot. We don't necessarily have a problem with "change," it just needs to be well conceived and carried out in a deliberate and thoughtful manner.

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.
