Matt Yogus on Sports - Sometimes, I like a surprise

I like surprises. The Statesboro Lady Blue Devils, the Bulloch Academy Gators and the Claxton Tigers have each had a whale of a season, so when they each went out and got a region championship, it was some good icing on their collective cake.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Help us recognize our emerging leaders

I think our local organizations do a wonderful job of recognizing those individuals who give of their time and resources to make Statesboro and Bulloch County a better place to live.

John Bressler - A blockbuster story from God

I keep at least four books open on my desk and try to read from each of them at least once a day. Sometimes I will just skim, occasionally look up a point in question and now and then touch them to make sure they're still where I left them. Today, I have picked up the seventh edition of "Western Civilization" and a brief section about Medieval Society, sub section Noblewomen, to check out some stuff I want to share with my classes. You pick your stuff and I will pick mine. Okay? Okay.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Land deals in early Georgia go astray

Until 1803 Georgia distributed land based on the "headright" system. Each head of family had the "right" to 200 acres of land for himself and 50 acres of land for each member of his family, up to 1,000 acres. After the Revolutionary War a number of governors signed land grants of significantly greater amounts than the law allowed.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Overly wet weather worries area farmers

This has really been a wet winter. Since Dec. 1, our area has had an estimated 26 inches of rain. Creeks, ponds, streams, and rivers are filled and in many cases overflowing.

John Bressler - How will you change history?

It was November 27, 1922, when archaeologist Howard Carter changed history. For some 15 years, he had been searching for the illusive remains of the legendary boy king Tutankhamen. He was running out of money and time because his benefactors, expecting to make both fortune and fame, had little to show for his efforts except some rather common and hardly valuable artifacts.

Kathy Bradley - Life is good and winter won't last forever

Sometime around Thanksgiving I heard a radio broadcaster announce that the meteorologists for the state were predicting a colder and wetter winter than usual. I say give those boys and girls a gold star. Winter won't be officially over for another six weeks or so, but their prophesies have been fulfilled.

Bulloch Geneaology with Roger Allen - Hodges family roots date back to 1200

The Hodges are a family of great antiquity. Variations in spelling occurred in their names over time, including Hoegges (pronounced ho-edges), Hogge, Hoge, Haig, Haigh, Hage, Hogue, Hodges, Hodge, Hodgis, Hodgins and even Hodgson. The family immigrated to Holland to escape persecution for their religious beliefs, and changed the spelling of their name to 'Hague.'

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - South Georgia becomes a center of Indian activity

The first white man to meet Georgia's native peoples was Dr. Henry Woodward, a surgeon and world traveler, who had joined the English colonists sailing to the area which would become the Carolina colonies. In 1670, Woodward journeyed far inland to the Indian village of Cofitachequi located between the lands of the Creeks and the Cherokees.

Matt Yogus on Sports - Signing Day: It is what it is

First off, let me just throw this out there – the media (yes, myself included) makes way too big a hoopla out of National Signing Day.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - What’s hot in Bulloch’s real estate market?

I jog several times a week, and therefore, have a lot of opportunity to look at real estate within Statesboro's city limits. This past Saturday as I was "cruising" by property "for sale" signs, a thought occurred to me.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Short month is long on fun

There must be a reason that the shortest month of the year was chosen to contain the most romantic, love-filled day of the entire year. Heart-shaped cards and candy and everything pink and red remind us regularly that February is the month of LOVE. Use all twenty-eight days of this month to show the ones that you love just how very special they are to you. Start with a few of the celebrations below, then make up some of your own.

Holli Deal Bragg - A little common sense needed from city council

Vendors from the currently closed Statesboro Flea Market filled almost half the seats in the Statesboro City Council meeting room Tuesday morning, hoping councilmen would see to reason and rescind a recent order that the market be closed due to lack of compliance with city ordinances.

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.

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. Whether it's on the front porch of the family cabin or beneath the sky on a blanket by the ocean, year after year, l revel in celebrating our nation's independence.

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.
