Kathy Bradley - Haul back and let it loose

DeleteMy godson the football coach isn't having a very good year. Actually, he personally is having a very good year (He got married in January to a wonderful young woman he takes every opportunity to introduce as "my smokin' hot wife."); it's his football team that can't seem to get it together.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: We can conquer all fears

Fear comes in many forms and disguises. It goes by different names, such as "discouragement," "worry," "despair," "hopelessness" and "depression." We experience it in every conceivable circumstance, even in our relationship with God. Some fear is good, because it may save us from great harm: the fear of falling, of fire, of hell, etc. But even these "good" fears can become irrational and debilitating. There is the fear of failure, of loneliness, even the fear of being afraid.

John Bressler -- Are you just an accident? No!

Dr. Wesley Weatherhead, a great theologian and pastor, said, "There are two days in every life. The first day is the day you are born and the next day is when you find out why." I wish I had said that. I remember vividly when I was asking a class about their purpose and if they were no more than a breath of air, a passing fancy or even an accident. As I waited for some response, I noticed a young man making a call on his cell phone. I asked, "What in the world are you doing?" He spoke ...

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Leaves, fruit and reptiles

At last ... the coolness in the air gives us the feeling that autumn truly has arrived. Savor each beautiful, crisp morning and celebrate the new season. Take in a football game or two; look for pumpkins and scarecrows; attend a fall festival or fair parade; and look for every shade and hue of orange imaginable. And, as if the adventures above weren't enough to keep your family busy, try some of these zany holidays.

John Bressler - Sorry, I don't take surveys

Proverbs 22:6 (with my scribal insert), "Teach a child in the way he or she should go, and when he or she is old will not depart from it." I would like to say, "Teach your kids all you can when they are little and quit worrying. They'll be just fine."

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Patriots hated, feared Coffell

Colonel Joseph Coffell (or Scophol) was said by Patriot General William Moultrie to have been an "illiterate, stupid, and noisy blockhead." Stupid though he may have been, he certainly gave them a great deal of trouble.

Our Views: Council members owe citizens explanation for using taxpayer money

The Statesboro City Council essentially fired City Manager Shane Haynes Tuesday night. Perhaps they did him a favor by calling for his resignation, which qualifies him for a healthy severance payout, or they saved themselves from another expensive lawsuit.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Don't need flood insurance? Check the map

Much to the dismay of many local residents, the federal government has lowered the "flood" boom, so-to-speak. With the implementation of the new FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) flood zone maps on August 5th, many residents are finding that their property and homes are now classified as being in a special flood hazard area.

Kathy Bradley - Chant for more rain gets louder

My mother is a seamstress. I grew up sitting on the floor at her feet playing with cards of buttons and seam binding, arranging dozens of spools of thread in prism arcs, studiously examining pictures and descriptions on pattern envelopes. It should come as no surprise, then, that images of the natural world often come to me in dressmaker's terms.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - So what day of the week is it?

The term week came from the Saxon word "wikon," signifying 'a turn, or a succession of, as in days.' The Babylonians had long used the seven-day week, and it may be from Babylon the Hebrews adopted it after their captivity in the sixth century B.C.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Devil, stress no match for God

Mental tension and pressure have been realities for people since the garden of Eden. Adam and Eve weren't exempt from the demands inherent in the privilege and responsibility of free will. Beginning with them, and flowing through the history of mankind, stress has been a part of our existence. Even babies experience stress when hungry, or a diaper needs changing.

There's plenty to do around here

I like Proverbs for several reasons: I learn something new every time I read it; the sayings are wise and easily understood; the glory of young men is in their strength, but the beauty of old men is their gray hair and great legs; grandchildren are the crown of the aged and that's why we had children. I realize that I have taken a few liberties so give me some slack.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Lying is a difficult problem to solve

Q: We are very concerned about our 8-year-old grandson's lying. He always pleads innocence and wonders plaintively why no one ever believes him. When someone confronts him with some misdeed they saw him do (for example, poking holes in the back door screen), he merely shrugs his shoulders and grins.

Kathy Bradley - For Ophelia

So bright that I could make out the fluted edges of the leaves of the geraniums. So bright that the rocking chairs glowed in the shadows of the porch. So bright that across the way I could tell, even in the dark of midnight, where the field ends and the woods begin. It was the first honey moon to fall on Friday the 13th in almost a hundred years, an event that will not happen again, according to astronomers, until 2098, an appointment I will not be able to keep.
