On Art with Lynn Lilly - Averitt exhibit brings imagination, realism

We move through our world focused on chewing up the miles to the freeway, not on the roadside views we're traveling. We stroll out to get the mail and see only the weeds that need pulling, not the bird nesting or the magnolia blooming. We live in a place for a year or a lifetime and forget to see the sights, scenes and moments that make the place – and our lives – what they are.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - What makes a kid truly terrific?

If the frequency of my own sightings is any indication, those "My Child Is a Terrific Kid!" bumper stickers are fast becoming ubiquitous. Curious, I did some investigating and discovered that Terrific Kids is a school-based character-building program sponsored by Kiwanis. Terrific is an acronym that stands for Thoughtful, Enthusiastic, Respectful, Responsible, Inclusive, Friendly, Inquisitive and Capable.

John Bressler - Look for light in the darkness

Julie and I had been officially dating for about six months and most of her family seemed to like me. What's not to like? We were going to visit her favorite on this particular day. She was Baba Mamie, Julie's grandmother, who lived on the fifth floor of the Simmons Apartment Complex. As we started to walk into the foyer, I heard a, "Yoo Hoo!" and looked up to see Baba Mamie leaning over her railing and tossing some candy down to us. I liked her already.

Kathy Bradley - The risk of melted wings

The sun did not rise today. It sprang. Did not slowly inch into the sky. Catapulted. Went from being a clean, sharp, compass-drawn arc behind the tree line to a barely-round blotch midway up the sky, its lower half covered by a cloud like a towel wrapped around its waist. A towel made of long-staple Egyptian cotton. Extra thick. Talcum powder soft.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Only 1 ship named for Bulloch County

Believe it or not, there has only been one boat, ship, or vessel registered with the name Bulloch County.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - High self-esteem is overrated

Q: I recently heard you speak in San Diego and need some clarification. While I understand that researchers have found that high self-esteem is not what it was cracked up to be, I want my kids to approach the challenges of life with confidence in their abilities. There's got to be a reconciliation point here. What is it?

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Got the new iPad? Some thoughts for 'apps'

I do not want to be a slave to technology, but I'm afraid there simply isn't any way to get around it. A savvy investor understands the power of technology, and the companies that manufacture it - either hardware or software, and a savvy entrepreneur uses it.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Having quiet kids is as easy as 1-2-3

Q: My kids, 4 and 3, are very loud. They yell and run inside the house. They bang toys, get into loud conflicts, and my son likes to scare his little sister by growling like a dinosaur. I know most of this stuff is normal, but I've got a new baby on the way, and I'm worried that the baby isn't going to be able to get enough rest during the day. Should I punish or just lighten up?

Kathy Bradley - Grammar, astronomy and being tamed

Somebody said that if I went outside around 9 o'clock and looked in the western sky I could see Jupiter and Venus. So I went outside and stood in the middle of the big empty yard and stared at the place where I'm usually watching the sun sink. There they were, two white lights too big to be stars and too still to be airplanes, so they must be planets. I didn't see any rings around either one of them - not that I expected to at that distance, of course - but it occurred to me at that ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Prize boxes counterproductive in classrooms

Q: Our 8-year-old son was caught stealing from the teacher's prize box at school. He has done this in the past and was punished, but it seems he hasn't gotten the picture yet. Do you have any suggestions for us?
