Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - GSU makes smart purchase of golf course

In my humble opinion, the decision makers at Georgia Southern continue to make shrewd decisions when it comes to the ongoing development of the university.

Kathy Bradley - Scenes our senses capture

The wildfire had been burning for over a week. I expected to see evidence of it as I passed the green metal road sign that marked the Long County line and drove on down the highway lined with pine trees and wire grass, but I didn't.

My Take with Matt Yogus - Significant win for Moye, Eagles

The biggest story out of the past weekend in Georgia Southern baseball would probably have to be Andy Moye.

Tommy Palmer's Sports Comment - A Final Four no one could have predicted

March Madness bounceball is almost complete. Ironically, the NCAA basketball championship will come to a successful conclusion the first Monday night of April in 2011, which prompts me to wonder if the NCAA, CBS, TBS, TNT and TruTV might need to come up with a new marketing slogan for this long, long, sports spectacular.

Kathy Bradley - The March wind doth blow

Two weeks ago one of the young sawtooth oaks in the backyard was still clinging to its winter leaves - tight little wrapping paper tubes of brittle brown. The bigger leaves were long gone; these were the recalcitrant ones, the obstreperous children determined to have their own way.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - What on earth did Jesus say?

One of my Bible professors in Graduate School tried to drum into our head the principle that reading the Bible doesn't always lead to understanding it. Nor does comprehension always lead to obedience. The motives of people for reading the Bible are not always as high or pure as they must be to benefit fully from the revelation of God's will.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Parents are not teaching cell phone manners

A reader asks if I have ever written a column on texting while eating in restaurants. She writes: "Recently my husband and I observed a small group at a table near us in a local restaurant. There were two teenage boys and a mother. They never talked to one another the entire time. All they did was text and play with various electronic gadgets. I asked our waiter if this happened a lot and he said it was the norm. He also told us that he often has to wait while taking an order until a person gets off their ...

John Bressler - Sin is the unique and undeniable essence of every human being

Sunday, Pastor Jimmy gave me some great insight which I hope to share with you. While some very sincere folks believe that whatever ails us can be cured by faith, the fact is that some problems need earthly medial assistance. If break my arm, God has given some very good doctors who know how to set broken bones and I'll see the physician before I try to fix it myself. If my psychological balance is out of whack, most self-help books are the last resort and the best possible solution is to see a therapist. This is not to ...

John Bressler - Don't worry about the end of the world

Are you a Premillennialist, a Postmillennialist, an Amillennialist or just a plain old Millennialist? I'll say this: I have heard more end of time conversation in the last few weeks than one can imagine and quite a few folks are pretty jittery about the entire scenario. According to Google, 45 million searches are asking about all these catastrophes and disasters, 380 thousand are checking out the latest on the Mayan calendar and about 11 million want to know what the Bible has to say about the end of the world.

Holli Deal Bragg - What can we do about crime?

Just a few years ago, it seems, many of us never locked our doors. We left our windows rolled down when we went to the store, we never worried about people going into our homes. Now we have security cameras, car alarms and motion lights.

Kathy Bradley - An event not remembered

It is grainy and gray, faded and fragile to the touch, a newspaper clipping from 1966. I am bent over it with a combination of amusement and incredulity. The caption says that it is a photograph of Girl Scout Troop 370 on a field trip to the Statesboro Herald. It identifies the 20 or so girls, row by row. There in the middle is my name.

Our Views: Secrecy bill a terrible idea for Georgia

What if a major developer wanted to build a large factory next to where you live? Or a commercial center? Or some other project that would dramatically affect local traffic or the environment in your neighborhood?

John Bressler - At what age do we start teaching our children?

When I was called to the pastorate about 40 years ago - even though it seems like yesterday - Communion was not given to children who were not considered capable of "discernment" insofar as communion, The Eucharist or the Lord's Supper is concerned. Dr. Ben Lacy Rose, the wise old professor of church polity, sacramental education and administration, wrote many an article explaining the theological wisdom of those too young to understand but was always a tad fuzzy when it came to adults who may have been born with a handicap, which truly prevented them from having the capacity to figure ...

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Farmers Market taking orders, delivering

This word "slick" doesn't always have the best connotation, but it so appropriate in this instance.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Son likely untruthful about smoking habits

Q: We just discovered that our 17-year-old is using nicotine. He tells us he's been using for the past several months, smoking two to four cigarettes a day to cope with academic anxiety and relationships. He tends to be socially reserved and has been struggling with academics of late. He appears contrite and remorseful and has said, "I should never have gotten started with this stuff in the first place."

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Half a year gone already!

With school bells just around the corner, the lazy days of summer are slowly slipping away. Along those lines, over half of the days of year 2015 have slipped away, too. July 1 or 2 - according to how precise you are, and if you add that .5-day when you divide 365 in half - is officially the halfway point of the year. Have you had half of the family fun you hope to have this year? How are the family memories for the year adding up?

Kathy Bradley: In the middle -- with snakes

The first snake skin of the season appeared about six weeks ago, stretched out in a long line across the concrete of the carport in almost exactly the same spot as the one I found last year - the one I measured and looked up in the Audubon Guide to confirm its non-venomous nature. Upon spying this new one, I congratulated myself - since there was no one else there to congratulate me - on what amounted to a non-reaction, i.e., "Oh, look. A snake skin. The skin of a snake. Lying within a few feet of my back door. What a ...

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Treat emotional outbursts with more sleep

Q: Our 8-year-old daughter tries to manipulate us and her siblings (she is the youngest of three) with emotional outbursts and whining when things don't go her way. She is mostly a delightful, cheerful child, but this bothersome cycle flares up at least every other day. For the time being, at least, she only behaves this way at home. I think she would be embarrassed to behave this way in front of other people, including her friends.

You know you're in Fla. when ...

I turned to Julie and said, "I really know we're in Florida!" We had to take some stuff to Goodwill, and while I was talking to the young man who was processing our giveaways, I noticed a sign just back of their store almost hidden by the bushes. I thought it said, "Warning! No golfing or laughing!" That didn't seem to make a lot of sense, so I walked closer to get a better look. There was a makeshift wall that had been put up as a sort of barrier and a shirtless guy leaned out and said ...

Kathy Bradley: Worthiness of rain

Across the field I could hear it coming, like the rustling of a thousand pages, the whispers of a thousand lovers, the lifting of a thousand wings. The rain moved toward me across the broad, flat field, a row at a time.
