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: Shy, independent children are normal

Q: Our 7-year-old is very shy. He doesn't enjoy the sort of social activities, including sports, that other kids his age are generally involved in and would rather play alone. He has one friend, who is also quite shy. His mother and I have conspired to arrange weekly play dates, but whereas the boys get along fine, both kids sometimes balk at cooperating with them. My son occasionally tells me he'd rather read or play alone than play with this other boy. When I ask why, he tells me he "just would." His school counselor has recommended that ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: God is always a good, wise choice

Years ago, Lindell Doty, a retired preacher and friend of mine now living in Florida, suggested that everybody has choices to make. Now, making decisions can be hard - sometimes so hard that we delay them as long as possible.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Encourage your child's flights of fancy

Today's parents tend to worry about all manner of things that do not deserve second thoughts. Imaginary friends, for example. I've been asked many times by mothers if they should worry that their preschoolers have imaginary friends they seem to think - and in some cases even insist - are real.

Kathy Bradley: Flirting with the sunrise

The color of this early morning in not-quite spring is liquid lavender, is pearly pink, is slightly silver in the way it glints and glows. The sky and the fields and everything in them are shaded as though tinted by a crayon unwrapped and swiped across the countryside with its long barrel, the sharp tip forgotten. Outlines and details are unimportant to the day as it languorously wakens.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Patience is the cure in potty training

Q: I've been using the method described in your toilet-training book with my 18-month-old daughter and she's been doing great during the day. She rarely has an accident. However, I'm still using a diaper at nap-time and during the night (waiting for some consistency in dryness before taking that away). Is that correct? The only problem is: She's figured out the routine and now only poops in her diaper when I put her down to sleep. She has not gone poop on the potty during the day for several weeks. Is that cause for concern? Should ...

Time to put away childish things

The other day, I just happened to be in one of our prestigious retailers and my phone rang, so I answered it. It was one of our kids filling us in on the latest news about grandchildren, birthdays and not to forget the presents. Anyway, I noticed some high school-aged children staring at me and I asked, "You need something?"

Living with Children with John Rosemond: A different solution to closet monsters

Q: About six months ago, our four-year old daughter began complaining of being afraid to be alone at bedtime. Upon questioning, she told us she was afraid of monsters in her closet and under her bed. We were unable to convince her otherwise. In fact, the more we talked to her, the more her fears grew to the point where she was becoming nearly hysterical at bedtime. As a result, I began staying with her until she fell asleep. The problem is that she wants to talk and doesn't end up falling asleep until 10 or 11 o'clock ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Those who receive God's comfort must comfort others

"Comfort." It's a nice word, bringing up thoughts of well-being, security and ease. It was a word that reminded the apostle Paul of his relationship with God. Writing to the Corinthian church, he noted that God "comforts us in all our affliction ... (2 Cor. 1:4). Finishing his thought, he added, "... so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God." God expects those whom he has comforted to use their opportunities to help others.

Kathy Bradley: Me and Gloria Gaynor

This is what I heard. This is what I heard this morning. This is what I heard this morning when I walked outside into sunshine. When I walked outside into air that was warm and slightly cloying. This is what I heard: the songs of at least six different birds rising up gently from the branch like the voice of a mother waking her sleeping child. This is what I heard: the drip drip drip of water off the roof onto the curved mouth of the gutter, a message delivered by tom-tom.

Guest column: Georgians with developmental disabilities deserve jobs, too

For individuals with developmental disabilities, the typical choices after finishing high school - getting a job or going to college - are difficult, if not impossible. There are thousands of Georgians with developmental disabilities, and the unemployment rate for that community is close to 87 percent.
