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.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Tankersley getting recognition she deserves

Recently, it was reported in the Statesboro Magazine that Bulloch County commissioner Jan Tankersley had been named one of Georgia Trend's 100 Most Influential Georgians for 2010. Suffice it to say, it is a powerful list ranging from Georgia's governor to the CEO(s) of Coca-Cola, Georgia Power, and AFLAC.

Kathy Bradley - Somebody like Lucy who's always willing to receive

My friend Lucy is 8 years old. She's about as big as a minute and has huge round eyes that are green as a gourd. And she has a head full of tight curls that, without anything else, would have endeared her to me. Lucy loves her dog Frannie, "High School Musical" and beating the grown-ups playing Wii. It is one of the great joys of my life that I got to stand with her and her parents as a judge signed the papers that confirmed what we'd known from the beginning - Lucy belongs to us.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Christians are part of Christ’s spiritual body

Thinking of God involves more than many realize. It means thinking not only of his existence, his person and his nature, but also of the things he has created. The Bible says, and nature demonstrates, that God created the universe and everything in it. Genesis 1 and many other passages give us some understanding – though far from complete – of the nature of his work in creation. We don't have to understand the "how" of God's creation in order to appreciate the reality of it.

Holli Deal Bragg - Moonlight, frogs and dirt road riding

The weather was warm for January - a balmy 68 degrees. That, paired with rain earlier that day, brought the frogs out to serenade the world. It felt like springtime, and Stan suggested a dirt road ride.

John Bressler - One thing you can be sure of is that God will surely provide

It is hard if not difficult to find good public articles that are unbiased and attempt to give facts and not opinions. The recent edition of The Atlantic wrote, "Did Christianity Cause the Crash?" As the writer suggests, "America's mainstream religious denominations used to teach the faithful that they would be rewarded in the afterlife. But over the past generation, a different strain of Christian faith has proliferated - one that promises to make believers rich in the here and now. Known as the prosperity gospel...."

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - New technology makes for a happy dentist

According to a new survey, only 45 percent of Americans are satisfied with their work. "It says something troubling about work in America. It is not about the business cycle or one grumpy generation," says Linda Barrington, managing director of human capital at the Conference Board, who helped write the report, which was released last Tuesday.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Nighttime bed-wetting may sort itself out

Q: Using your advice, I successfully toilet-trained my daughter by age 16 months. It is now three months later and we are still using diapers at naps and nighttime. At her nap, which lasts several hours, she fully soaks her diaper. At night, she is taking off her diaper prior to falling asleep, wetting the bed after she goes to sleep, and then crying for us when she wakes up in a pool of pee.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - Celebrate National Ice Cream Month

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Called to be in, not of, the world

Does God want his children involved in the activities of our world? And if so, just what should that entail? This is a question that ought to be of concern to every Christian.

Take science seriously, but believe

At times, I enjoy the computer because there is so much information accessible at the touch of a button. I remember asking a student to type in the word cuneiform to see what she could find. She said, "It seems to be some kind of language, Mesopotamian or something, printed on a clay tablet. So what's the big deal?"

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.
