Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Orgins of our named months

It's hard to believe it's September, the ninth month of the year, already. But when the names of our calendar months were first established, September was the seventh month. Here are some details about the origin of the names of our months.

Kathy Bradley - Nothing better than a summer evening

Henry James wrote that the two most beautiful words in the English language are "summer afternoon." Henry James did not live in south Georgia. If he had, his opinion, in my opinion, would have been somewhat different.

John Bressler - What are you reading from the 'banned book' list?

I always thought the word "AARP" was a sound made by a dog with a lisp until I began to receive my own copy of the retired person's newspaper, which I have found to be informative and interesting. On page 39 of the last edition, there is a headline, "Banned!", covering just a few of the many books either banned, burned or blacklisted. To my surprise and dismay, I have been found guilty of reading over half of the books on the list, but for the life of me, don't feel embarrassed or ashamed.

Our View - City should not approve memorandum with church

Statesboro city council members will consider this morning whether to approve a memorandum of understanding with First Baptist Church, in which the city would provide labor for extending a 10-inch water line from the intersection of Hill and Oak Streets to the new church sanctuary.

John Bressler - Thanks for use of the amazing GSU library

It's that time of the year when I get the privilege of thanking Dean Bede Mitchell and the extraordinary staff of the GSU Henderson Library for their courtesy and professionalism toward me and my students. As a long ago graduate of the almost defunct Dewey Decimal System and the card catalogue that I would drop on the floor very regularly, I am amazed at the online systems allowing anyone trained in the art of research to scan the known world for information.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Sav. loyalist plays both sides

Kathy Bradley - To the top of Treasure Mountain

It is about a mile to the top of the mountain. The trail is rocky and narrow, so narrow that two people cannot walk side-by-side. In late summer the thick canopy of trees offers little in the way of shelter from the fleece-like heat, but a few of the trees have already started dropping leaves, most of them red, like paper napkins blown off a picnic table.

John Bressler - Belive in Jesus and the Lord will take care of the rest

According to Acts 2, Jews from every "nation" converged on Jerusalem and received the gift of the Holy Spirit. The amazing and remarkable happening was that although these foreigners were speaking the language of their native lands, those Aramaic-speaking Jews could understand every word. This was not remotely similar to the Glossolalia of I Corinthians 14. In other words, everyone heard the alien languages and needed no translation. The gift of God's Spirit was both sight and sound.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Restauranteurs are 'tough' entrepreneurs

Last Thursday night, my two daughters and I went to the Coconut Thai Cuisine restaurant in the College Plaza shopping center located at the corner of Fair Road and Zetterower Avenue. Every time I go in there, I appreciate what it takes to make a restaurant "go."

John Bressler - Providence can be a strange vehicle

I still remember the time when I was a young man growing up in Huntington, West Virginia - that's west - attending Fifth Avenue Baptist Church and hearing the newly-appointed pastor from just plain Virginia say, "Anyone in here who begins reading that new revised standard version of the Bible will go to hell and should resign this church immediately!" Since he and most folks were raised on the old King James edition, he could not understand the scholarship and accuracy that the RSV provided, especially since it differed significantly in language and translation.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Patriot helps Georgia gain freedom

My Take with Matt Yogus - Some advice for the new offense

There are only a handful of guys in Georgia Southern's offense who have any real, in-game experience playing college football, fewer that have played their current position before and, by the way, only one quarterback has any in-game experience at all.

Dr. John Bressler: The magic of Christmas

The last couple of weeks have been wonderful for someone who likes the Christmas season and especially if he or she is looking for some Christmas spirit. Julie and I started out by attending the downtown tree lighting ceremony in Brooklet. It was a bit chilly - which is just right for folks like us - and we felt like we were in a Christmas card surrounded by angels. There was great music, Scripture and plenty of laughter and applause to warm our hearts. We love attending church and singing all those carols and admiring the tree decorated with crismons and the ...

Why you shouldn't walk your kid to class

Q: My buddy's wife walks their 11-year-old into the classroom each day. Then she takes out his assignments and helps him get ready. We're talking about a very capable kid who has no "issues" at all. My buddy says other mothers at his son's school are also doing the same thing. My wife has heard about this and wants to start walking our very capable son into his 4th grade room. What are your thoughts?

Teaching religion in the classroom

I have been thinking about the GSU professor whose religious approach in class - if what I have read and heard is accurate and not just rhetoric - is at odds with our U.S. Constitution. There are plenty of ways to use intelligent discussion of religion to make a point, open some creative critical thinking and take advantage of a good liberal arts education. I have always believed that some of our theologians, like Augustine or Calvin, could really make an impact in sociology or economics without beating students over the head with Catholicism or Protestantism.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Five fundamentals every parent needs

Despite the conclusion one might reach after reading the latest issue of any popular parenting magazine, the job of parent is actually quite simple - so simple that I can describe the entire ball of wax in less than 15 column inches.

Kathy Bradley: December refrain

It is Advent. The season of wonder. Hot on the trail of Thanksgiving and Black Friday and just a few hours before Cyber Monday. And so far the only wonder I've experienced is what to do with two perfectly good pumpkins that, along with a couple of diminutive bales of hay, some cotton stalks and branches of eucalyptus and about a dozen pine cones, made a lovely autumnal tableau for the front porch at Sandhill for the last two months.

Why Christmas is so special

Just in case you haven't been watching the everyday yuletide movies on television, Christmas is right around the corner. It's not just around the corner. It's on our doorsteps! Many years ago, we held off all the carols, decorating and buying until after Thanksgiving. Not now! Christmas has become such an economic necessity that retailers are already licking their lips as the GDP looks like it's made a comeback and money is for the making so prepare yourselves for a mountain of Rudolph, advertising and items that you must have in order to fill those stockings ...

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Preschool ain't all it's cracked up to be

Courtesy of my friend and parent coach Janet Neal (www.ourchildishways.com) comes an interesting story: The parents of a 4-year-old girl went to a preschool parent conference to learn from her teacher that she is having difficulty with scissors and somewhat behind the other kids in letter and number recognition. The parents apparently blew the teacher's mind when they replied that they were more concerned with their daughter's heart and character than her academic achievement. Was she compassionate? Was she respectful of her teachers and peers?

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Christmas and cocoa and crosswords

Stockings and lights and cedars and reindeer are appearing, which can only mean one thing: Another year is almost over, and December has arrived. Is your house decorated? Have you marked everything off your Christmas list? Are the cookies baked?

Living with Children with John Rosemond: A brief list of today's parenting problems

From the I'm Sorry to Have to Tell You Department: Parents who say they want to raise kids who "think for themselves" are not being exactly truthful. It's a nice and very democratic thing to say, for sure, but let's face it, folks: You want your kids to think like you do. For example: If you're a liberal, you want your kids to be liberals when they grow up. Right? Right! The same is true of conservatives, libertarians, people of faith, people of no faith and people with COEXIST bumper stickers on their cars. Furthermore, that ...

Where do you fit in the scheme?

It's last Monday morning and according to the weather report - and somebody got it right this time - it's raining very hard with thunder and lightning, and it's nice to be inside looking out. This afternoon, we have a 100 percent chance of very heavy rain, high winds and a get-ready-to-hunker-down warning, which I will do my best to follow the directions. One of my colleagues has just told me we're not supposed to have this kind of stuff this late in the year. Since he teaches Algebra, what does he know? He knows this: it is ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Gratitude is timeless for Christians

Thanksgiving is more than a single day - it is an attitude about everything in life. Life is made up of past, present and future. The perspective we have on each helps determine our happiness and effectiveness. So, Christians can be grateful for ...
