John Bressler - On vacation in Sarasota, Florida

Where does one go during a short holiday to be unconditionally admired by brilliant, well-mannered and good looking grandchildren? Why, to Sarasota, Florida, of course! There are those little glitches: driving into a truck stop by mistake and having to park between a half dozen 16-wheelers and walking 50 yards to the restaurant. The up-side was that you could get a hot shower and free high-speed hook up. There was the two-hour delay on I-75 due to a nasty accident. Our GPS didn't like our choice of Rt. 301 and kept wanting us to make a U-Turn to get ...

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Why I'm hopeful about downtown purchase

The residents of Statesboro and Bulloch County are a relatively conservative lot. We don't necessarily have a problem with "change," it just needs to be well conceived and carried out in a deliberate and thoughtful manner.

John Bressler - I open my home to Jesus to rebuild, remodel and renew

Julie and I enjoy watching channel 46 that has all those "fixer upper" shows where an expert craftsman comes in to either upgrade, remodel or completely make over a disaster caused by a very incompetent or shady builder.

Kathy Bradley - When the big oak came down

Like most things of a destructive nature, it arrived with little notice. Sitting on the front porch reading, I sensed a change in the atmosphere, something advancing from the southwest. The hair on the back of my neck didn't stand up, but it should have.

John Bressler - The Supreme Court without a Protestant

When I first began writing for the Herald, I promised myself to never get involved with political issues simply because I am not a trained politician, don't want to be and not popular enough to be elected president. With that said, I am going to fall into the abyss of semi-academic rhetoric. That means, I am going to say what's on my mind and in my heart concerning the Supreme Court, colorfully called by the acronym SCOTUS, Supreme Court of the United States.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Jesus helps calm the raging storm

One of the most beloved stories from the life of Jesus tells of his calming a terrifying storm on the Sea of Galilee (Matthew 8:23-27; Mark 4:37-41; Luke 8:22-25). As with all his miracles, Jesus' primary purpose, for his apostles as well as us, was to demonstrate his power, proving his deity.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - New challenge for longtime Boro banker

If there is one thing that I have learned since I became Business Tuesday editor six years ago is that movement of executives from one bank to another is pretty common place. For the most part, these moves don't really surprise me, but I have to admit this latest one did somewhat.

John Bressler - The fear is gone, anxiety has passed

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Be a parent, not a friend

Q: My 14-year-old daughter says I don't trust her because, unlike her best friend's parents, I won't allow her to stay home alone for several days while I go out of town. Her friend's parents do this at least once a month while they go to their second home, and their two teenagers - 14 and 16 - have thrown at least two raucous alcohol (and most likely sex) parties in their absence.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Tackle problems when the iron is cold

Q: Our 4-year-old daughter has a huge problem with being laughed at. She loves to be goofy and do funny things, but as soon as someone, including one of us, laughs at her, she becomes upset. She will say "Don't laugh!" or "I don't want you to laugh at me!" We explain that we aren't laughing at her but at the funny things she does. We've also told her that we laugh because we are happy and having a good time with her. Is there a different way to explain this to her so that she ...

Kathy Bradley - A parade and a pyramid

Jackson is almost 4 - that age at which he understands his separateness from other people but does not yet understand the separateness of his emotions. His will is clear and distinct, but his heart is still one with the world. Whatever is happening to him, be it highest joy or deepest sorrow, is happening to the world. That thing - the filter, the wall, the individuation of identity that will eventually teach him that this is not so, that his feelings are uniquely his and that not everyone can be trusted with them - has yet to take hold.

A memorable spring break

Last week, while most students were vacationing in such exotic faraway places like Panama Beach, Daytona Beach or Hopeulikeit, Julie and I had the wonderful opportunity to run down to Sarasota, Florida, to see our daughter and family and our middle son, George, from California. For those of you who don't know the scenario, from the day after Thanksgiving to the day after Easter, Florida fills up like a test tube full of Snowbirds who eat everything in sight, drive like maniacs and play very bad golf.
