John Bressler - Check out the Bible; it's still a great read

"A", "an" and "the" are the most common articles. While "a" and "an" are called indefinite or non-specific, the article "the" is both definite and specific. Hold this thought for a while.

Kathy Bradley - Liar, liar pants on fire

Spring is always a flirt. Occasionally a tease. But this year, ah, this year Spring has been nothing short of ... well, a liar.

Holli Deal Bragg - Rest in peace, Black Betty

It's funny how we become attached to things. Things, not people. Sometimes it seems inanimate objects actually have personalities, and we come to view them like old friends.

Want a Census job? Then apply right now

I saw some literature last week from the U.S. Census Bureau stating that the organization was actively hiring in our area. Today, I was able to speak with two people that are working for the Census Bureaus, but unfortunately, neither could speak officially for the organization.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - March in like a lion, out like a lamb

The month of March very decidedly blew onto the calendar with strong winds and dipping temperatures. Don't let the lingering winter weather keep you and your loved ones from making warm memories to cherish. Celebrate each day as a gift and welcome spring into your home this month, whether or not the thermometer matches the calendar. Try a few of these honest-to-goodness, real celebrations or make up a few of your own.

John Bressler - Quiet on the set, the director is speaking

Last week, our Friday night bunch went to the Emma Kelly Theater to share laughter, tears and real life experiences with the cast of "The Funeral Club." As the play unfolded, I couldn't help but realize that we knew just about everyone in the audience and we were among friends who could not only identify with but share together a touching moment in time.

Local Genealogy - Proctors one of founding families in Bulloch County

The Proctors are one of Bulloch County's founding families. The name Proctor is tied to those who were officers in the Admiralty or Ecclesiastical courts in England, who served as legal advisors. In some cases, this meant being in charge of overseeing the welfare of the poor and needy.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - World War II ace was Bulloch raised

Almost everybody has heard of the "Flying Tigers," the American pilots who were fighting the Japanese, but few people know of its Bulloch County connection. Their commander, General Robert Lee Scott Jr., or "Scotty" as he was called when he was young was born in Waynesboro on April 12, 1908, but spent much of his childhood living with his grandfather B.H. Scott in Bulloch County.

Opinion - $565 million in cuts to state's higher education budget is irresponsible

Legislators are expected to meet in Atlanta today to go over proposals from Georgia's 35 colleges and universities to cut $565 million from their budgets. The schools were told to make the proposals last week after lawmakers said Gov. Sonny Perdue's original demand of $265 million in cuts didn't go far enough.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Job applicants flock to the Olive Garden

This is a time of mixed signals for sure. On one hand, government officials and financial analysts report our economy is growing again and that the era of job "letting" has eased. Within a few days we hear that consumer confidence is down, and spending has contracted leading to "fears" in the marketplace.

Kathy Bradley - You must remember the snow of 2010

Maybe in Reykjavik people can render an image of snow in cliche-less terms. Maybe in International Falls they can avoid words like pristine in describing the scenes outside their living room windows. Maybe in Kiev, where my Kate has been for five months, one can be so accustomed to it that it hardly merits mentioning.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - What does it take to invest in good works

According to the man on the radio several years ago, owners of world-famous Starbuck's Coffee decided to implement an interesting and innovative policy. In simple terms, they would pay an additional ten cents per pound for their coffee if their suppliers could show they were paying their employees at least minimum wage, and treating them well otherwise. I never heard whether this proposal motivated Starbuck's third world coffee bean suppliers to upgrade the treatment of their workers. But the proposal does raise an interesting question concerning the will of God.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - The first soda pop arrives in Southeast Georgia

In 1767, Englishman Dr. Joseph Priestley developed the process by which one could flavor water beverages. His first flavors included sarsaparilla, birch bark, dandelion and several fruit-flavored drinks. Although Swedish chemist Torben Bergman developed the process to carbonate water, it wasn't until 1832 that American John Waters developed a machine capable of producing large quantities of carbonated soda water.

John Bressler - We can make a difference

It was a goodly number of years ago when I was honored to be named as a commissioner to the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church, which was held at Milwaukee, Wis. It might have been the second day of meetings and I just happened to be standing by the free coffee and donut table when a stranger came up to me and asked, "Bressler, is that you in there?" I don't get those kinds of questions too often, so I stared at his name tag and read his name, Don Munzmay. Don and I just happened to have ...

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.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Helicopter parenting helps no one

A second-grade teacher writes: "I teach in a very competitive school where parents have developed a 'mob mentality' for bullying administrators and teachers. They have gone beyond helicopter parenting to Apache Blackhawk parenting."
