In the May 4, 1938, edition of the Bulloch Herald, it was reported that on the coming Saturday, May 6, the first legal whiskey would be sold in Bulloch County since Dec. 19, 1879.
The calendar officially may be counting down the days of spring, and some early mornings bless us with spring-like temperatures, but late-sleeping children with no homework to complete, the absence of large yellow vehicles on the road and teachers vacationing at the beach or pool signify that summer has arrived. Make plans to celebrate sunny, summer days with the family, and don't miss a minute of fun during the month of June.
Recently, I attended the annual scholarship banquet held by the Professional Women of Statesboro in which two scholarships were given by the organization totaling $2,500.
In the face of a chorus of loud, yet inaccurate, attacks on the Common Core State Standards, we felt it necessary to set the record straight.
Adabelle Road was a little like Beacon Street this morning, only without Fenway Park and Boston Common. It was a pair of Canada geese, not Mallard ducks, trying to cross the road with their offspring and, of course, there was no Michael the policeman stopping traffic. Still, the scene felt familiar as I was forced to a complete stop as an intergender discussion of which way to go took place on the white line running down the middle of the pavement.
Our commitment to one another is prompted by and based upon our allegiance to the Lord. Christians understand that God has perfect understanding of our needs as human beings made in his image: "All this also comes from the Lord Almighty, wonderful in counsel and magnificent in wisdom" (Isaiah 28:29).
Q: I went into my 17-year-old's bedroom to wake him this morning. After some urging, he eventually got up and then told me he hated me. What is the appropriate consequence for this sort of disrespect?
Editor's Note: The following story has been revised to reflect the following correction, which appears in the June 4 print edition: Because of incorrect information supplied, a transaction that resulted in Sam and Gail Haapala, from Beaufort, S.C., owning Bruster's Real Ice Cream on Lovett Road was inaccurately described in a business column in the May 21 edition. Hull Storey Gibson Companies LLC, the owner of the Statesboro Mall, purchased the property out of foreclosure from Sea Island Bank. The Haapalas lease the facility from Hull Storey Gibson.
Two Georgia Southern University students had their 15 minutes of fame when an episode of "Judge Mathis" aired Monday.
Julia Child taught a lot of cooks a lot of things, but nothing she said ever resonated with me more than these words: "Find something you're passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it." That realization has gotten me through some otherwise mundane times in my life, and those are the very words that inspired me to create my food blog, "Some Kinda Good." I never imagined doing what you love could open so many doors, but as it turns out, when you do what you love, success comes. This food column is my success.
When I was a child, back in the Parenting Stone Age (aka the Parentocentric Era), your parents were the most important people in the family. They paid the bills, bought your clothes, prepared the food you ate, took care of you when you were sick, drove you to where you needed to be, tucked you in and kissed you good night. They were essential.
A good question to ask about the home is, "Why did God create it?" When we look for the answer in the Bible - which tells us what God's will for mankind is - it becomes obvious that the home is the foundation of society in every culture. It doesn't take much effort to confirm this contention by observation. Other factors are involved, but "as goes the home, so goes humanity" is pretty much a universal truism.
One of Statesboro's most famous residents was known by a different name to many locals, as well.
It is always fun to interview people who are able to make a lifelong passion their livelihood. I had that opportunity recently when I visited with Ryan Marsh, owner of Bellies, Babies, and Ballerinas on West Main Street.
Q: Is it OK to start teaching our 1-year-old how to play independently? He screams and cries when I put him in any type of enclosure if he can't get "free," even when I arrange the furniture in a way that he has a very ample play area. Is there a method to teach him how to play by himself for at least a little bit? It seems I am following him around the house all day so he can't get into trouble or hurt himself or damage furniture, etc. We have our house baby-proofed, but he is ...
