Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Early Georgia games horrify British visitors

In the early 1800's, visitors from the European continent were often aghast at the rough and tumble manner of Georgians. Charles William Janson wrote in his 1807 book "A Stranger in America," of his experiences traveling around coastal Georgia.

Kathy Bradley - Need annuals and perennials in gardens and life

I planted hostas last spring. They were, according to the little plastic-coasted stakes in the pots, well-suited to the shaded spot right outside the back door at Sandhill. I planted four, realized that I had greatly underestimated the number needed and planted eight more. They were green, so very green, and about half of them were a variety that had a thin yellow trim along the leaves.

John Bressler - Considering Jesus' impact on the world now and forever

I brought in the mail expecting only the best of news: a long lost relative has just left me a gazillion dollars, Antiques Roadshow wants to buy my collection of CDs, here's my self-help book, "Playing the Banjo for Fun and Profit," and a request to be a guest of Oprah so I can explain to the world my new book, "Success is Just an Eight-Letter Word."

Matt Yogus on Sports - Fun with baseball numbers

It's been a roller-coaster ride of a baseball season so far for the Georgia Southern Eagles, but as the schedule begins winding down and GSU looks ahead to a break from Southern Conference play this weekend, they finally hit the bar.

Case tractor dealership opening on Hwy 67

I thought by now that one of the Herald's observant readers would have emailed me to ask what is being built on Highway 67 South near the Denmark community. The building that I am referring to is a large steel structure being constructed at the former location of Red Diamond Homes.

John Bressler - Make marriage much more than just a contract

I was walking to my classroom the other day and, as I passed by another room, a young lady asked if I would step inside. She looked at one of the other students and said, "Ask him." His question, "When you get married and give someone a ring, isn't that a contract?' I started out with an engagement ring, which is given as a promise, and then to the wedding ring, which is a sign and symbol for the bride and groom as well as to the public that these folks are married and plan to be a faithful ...

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Oglethorpe is first to negotiate with Indian tribes

General James Edward Oglethorpe did much more than just help establish the colony of Georgia. After he was elected to represent Haslemere in the County of Surrey as a member of Parliament. He soon chaired a committee that investigated the living conditions of Britain's prison inmates.

Matt Yogus on Sports - Looking behind the hype of the NFL Draft

With all the ritz, glamour, bling, pomp and circumstance surrounding an NFL Draft that made its debut on Thursday night prime time, it's amazing to think that none of the guys whose names were called have accomplished, well, anything yet in the league.

Kathy Bradley - Hiding is what we do when fear besieges the fortresses of our hearts

I have this friend. We've known each other for over 30 years. We don't see each other often, but when we do we don't have to reacquaint or search for topics of conversation. We tease and laugh and remember easily.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - It takes courage to stand up for justice

If you're a golfer, you're likely to be familiar with the name Lee Trevino, the "Merry Mex" and "Supermex" who made his living playing professional golf for many years. In a television documentary several years ago, the commentator told about Trevino's efforts to get on the PGA tour as a young "nobody," noting the difficulty of getting past the credentials committee's reluctance to accept him because of his assumed inexperience. There was also the issue of Lee's Mexican heritage.

There is a cure for all illness

I have had a certain amount of interest concerning John Forbes Nash Jr. ever since Julie and I saw the very loosely-based movie on his life, "A Beautiful Mind." I also liked the fact that he was born in Bluefield, West Virginia - only a hop, skip and jump from Huntington - and I could claim a certain amount of kinship. The man was a mathematical genius, a schizophrenic and pretty odd. I do not claim any of what I just wrote as kinship. His basic theory was, "any abstract Riemannian manifold can be isometrically realized as a submanifold of Euclidean space."

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Parents unwittingly pass anxiety to their kids

Since the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year, several elementary teachers have asked me why so many of today's kids come to school with anxiety issues. That's a good question, one that I think goes to the heart of contemporary American parenting.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: In the light or the dark: Where will you live?

A preaching friend I knew in south Mississippi about a hundred years ago recently wrote about his summer vacations at his "Granddaddy and Mamaw's" house and the "neat" experience of having to get drinking water via the hand pump and dipper at the well. I wrote him and told him I could remember similar experiences at my dad's family farm in Indiana. The biggest differences, I guess, were the lack of a pump on the well. Grandpa used a bucket, rope and pulley to get the water up, though there was a hand pump attached to the kitchen ...

Kathy Bradley: "Deep and Wide" for grown-ups

The local, as in Savannah, public radio station is off the air right now as a result of damage from a lightning storm. Without the voices of Steve Inskeep and David Greene and - since it's October and the Supreme Court is in session - Nina Totenberg igniting the pilot light of my brain, I have been left to entertain myself as I perform my morning ablutions. So I sing.

New breast cancer treatment options offering new hope

As a surgical oncologist focused on treating breast cancer, I see daily how devastating a breast cancer diagnosis can be. But I also see daily how new and often cutting-edge treatments give women the hope and courage they need to help manage or overcome the physical, mental and emotional challenges of breast cancer, and in many cases, beat the disease altogether.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Public-school discipline policies tie teachers' hands

A first-grade teacher asks what she can do about a girl in her class who is completely undisciplined. After nearly two months of this teacher's best efforts, the child's behavior is no better. She is defiant and aggressive toward other kids, and often gets out of her seat and crawls around on the floor. Several years ago she taught the girl's older sister, who also had numerous discipline issues. The home is chaotic, so the teacher doubts she can expect much - if any - help from the parents.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk: Foolproof apple crisp for the love of fall

On my ride to work on the first day of October, I turned on the defrost in my car for the first time this year. When I got to work, I turned off my air conditioning, relishing in the cool, rainy temperatures outside. This season, I've already enjoyed a few weekend brunches on my screened-in back porch, easy like a Sunday morning. I'm always sad to see summer go, but the food of fall and the excitement of the holidays quickly propel me forward.

Simpson, Bowles: Barrow is 'brave'

Our nation needs to get its fiscal house in order, and to do so citizens must fully demand leaders who are willing to put partisan differences aside and come together to present the American people with honest solutions and consensus proposals that put the national interest ahead of special interests. That is why we were so disheartened to learn that John Barrow is being criticized for his support of a budget based on the plan recommended in 2010 by a bipartisan majority of the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform which we co-chaired (Simpson-Bowles Commission).

Make reckless drivers pay

Tens of thousands of Georgians live with lifelong disabilities caused by brain and spinal cord injury. As medical technology, safety and trauma care have improved more people survive traumatic injury, but many then face a lifetime of physical, behavioral and cognitive impairments requiring ongoing support services. On any given day in communities all across Georgia, survivors of brain and spinal cord injury and their caregivers gather together in support groups to share the struggles they face living with these lifelong impairments. Astoundingly, there are over 75,800 newly injured Georgians each year, and close to 50 percent of those injuries ...

For the love of reading

I love reading college textbooks. Well, that is an exaggeration, as math has few stories about killin' and drinkin' and pillagin', which are very good subjects for an active mind like mine. Anyway, I always ask my teaching friends if they happen to have some old used books that could be tossed my way. The fact is that most old textbooks are quite accurate. However, they do lack colorful pictures to break up the monotony of long and sometimes boring paragraphs. I have always wondered why many of my students ask if they could take my picture to have for ...

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Son may naturally outgrow shy personality

Q: My 7-year-old son does well in school and sports and has a good number of friends. However, he often allows himself to be intimidated by other boys. He is a rule-follower and is more worried about getting in trouble than defending himself. I worry that other boys will see him as easy to pick on. Occasionally, he complains about how other boys treat him. What words can I use with him to explain how to be confident in himself and his athletic abilities, and not allow himself to be intimidated by other boys?

Kathy Bradley - Moon, myth and slow eclipse

Eclipses are slow. Which means there is plenty of time to notice the dew on my feet and the armadillo hole I may or may not be standing in, to hear a strange choral performance by the frogs in the branch that sounds like a rustling of the feathers of a giant flock of geese, to get just a little impatient and start staring at the stars instead, making up my own constellations.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: The teenage brain is not a mystery

I've spoken at several conferences in the last year or so where presenters were opining on the subject of the teenage brain. Their thesis was that features of the so-called "teenage brain" are largely responsible for the self-centered, irrational, moody, rebellious behavior now associated with adolescence.
