John Bressler - Easter is over so now what?

Easter is over, now what? As a pastor, I remember the day after Easter when I would look at my calendar and think how quiet the church will be, for a week maybe, and I can catch up on some stuff I had put aside until after the celebration was over. The fact is that the world goes on, everyday problems still exist and if we relax too much, opportunities can pass us by quicker than the blink of an eye.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Statesboro Civic League opens first public library in 1911

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - There are plenty of items ‘Made in U.S.A.’

Everyone out there needs to be clear on one thing - manufacturing is an important part of the U.S. economy. Manufacturing is strategically critical and must always be a part of the economy. While it is changing, manufacturing is not going to disappear. In fact, there is now a trend toward bringing it back. But we have a significant problem in this country because of the public perceptions to the contrary.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Enjoy the beauty of Springtime

When temperatures continued to dip night after night and snow blanketed Statesboro for the first time in several years, we wondered if springtime would ever visit again. But, just as faithful as the inevitable turning of the calendar page, so too is the faithfulness and beauty of springtime. Spring has arrived with grand splendor – from fluffy, white blossoms, to deep hues of purple and pink, to shades of green too many to count, to brilliant yellows and crimsons swaying in the farmers' fields. How can one fail to celebrate the beauty of spring when such delightful colors adorn the Earth ...

John Bressler - Sunday is Easter and I cannot help but sing

This past Thursday, our choir sang the beautifully haunting "Song of the Shadows" by Joseph M. Martin during the Tenebrae service. It is a way to remember the suffering of Jesus. Words and music hardly seem appropriate, and yet there is something about our trying to understand this sacrifice of our Lord that must be expressed with our entire being. When we sing, listen to the music and observe the darkness that surrounds this moment in time, it is as though we are weeping uncontrollably, tearing our clothing as a symbol of anguish and feeling our heart breaking because we ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - It's really hard to please everybody

Are you a "people-pleaser"? Do you try to make everybody like you and accept everything you do as what you ought to do? Some are, you know. And almost everyone wants to be accepted as a person of intelligence and ability, an individual of value. But most have experience the truth that it's really hard, even impossible, to please everybody.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Libraries become vital part of Colonies, Georgia

Britain's North American colonial libraries sprang up at the nation's new educational institutions. The first library was established when Boston clergyman John Harvard donated his collection in the 1690s to the institution that now bears his name.

Kathy Bradley - Every moment is perfectly balanced

At 1:32 p.m. last Saturday, after a winter that was long and hard and heavy, spring arrived. At that moment, known as the vernal equinox, the center of the sun was on the same plane as the equator of the earth and there was a perfect balance of light and dark.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Yummy! Cookie Cutters opening on Monday

I just love "happy" food - food that invokes memories of good times and joyous occasions. Years ago when our children were small, we lived in Tampa, Florida. On Friday afternoons, I would stop by the Alessi Bakery and pick up a few iced sugar cookies in different colors and designs to take home to our two girls and their friends.

John Bressler - I can live with that hope

When grandmothers get together, what do they talk about? If this were Jeopardy, the answer would be so simple, "Grandchildren!" And so, Shelba began to lovingly talk about Jonathan McGahee, a middle grandson home from Iraq on leave, soon to return, and what he was doing over there. She spoke of a young, likable, passionate outdoorsman with a heart as big as the world who realizes he has a responsible job and does what must be done. "He won't talk about danger or stress because he doesn't want his family to worry. He's glad to be home ...

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.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Make autumn awesome for the whole family

The weather in the 'Boro seems bent on keeping us guessing. Is it a raincoat day? Sweater day? Or shorts-and-sunglasses day? But the gentle tease of recent cool weather lets us know fall truly is coming, eventually, maybe in December. Enjoy all that fall offers, regardless of the thermometer, and make this an incredibly awesome autumn with your family. Celebrate the usual - fair week, Columbus Day, football games, church fall festivals and trick-or-treat night - and add a few of the zany but real holidays below to the family calendar for October.
