Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Where exactly is our state of Georgia

Almost everyone knows where Georgia lies inside the boundaries of the United States. But where exactly is Georgia located on Mother Earth? The answer is surprising. It also makes it very clear why Georgia was an area that all of Europe's colonial powers wanted to control.

Holli Deal Bragg - A resolution to have more fun

When my friend Donna told me one of the highlights of her year was when she and I went mud bogging on a four-wheeler with no brakes, it made me stop and think: life is all about your adventures.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Belk plans expansion; Mall plans renovations

I will be the first to admit that I really do love the Statesboro Mall. I don't care that the Georgia Southern student body fondly refers to it as the Statesboro Small, it is still the first large retail shopping development built in Statesboro, and for that reason, it remains near and dear to my heart.

Kathy Bradley - Dancing with the stars

I set the alarm for 3:15 a.m. The lunar eclipse, I understood, would be most visible to those of us at approximately 32 degrees 22 minutes 2 seconds north latitude and 081 degrees, 53 minutes 2 seconds west longitude at exactly 3:17 a.m. Two minutes would be just enough time to throw back the covers, throw on a bathrobe, throw open the door and dash into the front yard.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - God sent us his only son

The apostle Paul, writing to Timothy, said "Beyond all question, the mystery of godliness is great: He appeared in a body, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory." (1Timothy 3:16) This is one of the Bible's most concise statements of the events of the work of Jesus, the son of God in making salvation for sinful man possible.

John Bressler - Begin 2011 with the Bible and Christ

"I hated my work. Because when I die I will leave all I have done to a complete stranger who might be competent or a complete idiot. I will have spent a lifetime on work which will be given away. What a waste!" (My translation of Ecclesiastes 2:18-19).

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Flowers Discount bakery plans new store

A few weeks ago, I was genuinely saddened when the Flowers Discount Bakery store on North Zetterower Avenue in Statesboro closed. It was my "go to" place for all kinds of bakery products when I was feeding a large crowd.

Kathy Bradley - A man's reach

The blinds cut the winter sunshine into thick slices and they fall across my shoulder in long broad stripes. The movement of the rocking chair, forward and back, turns them into waves - reaching out and pulling back, a tide of light. Jackson is tilted in the crook of my arm, the rays making a halo of the soft fuzz on the top of his head.

Outdoors with Alvin Richardson - Varmints on the rise

Since the late 1960's the coyote population in Georgia has exploded. Around 1970 there had only been confirmed coyote sightings or kills in 23 Georgia counties. Today, all of the state's 159 counties are home to this wily veteran of the woods. Coyotes have migrated steadily eastward from the western and mid-western states and have found our part of the country to their liking. Coyotes can and will eat a wide variety of foods but relish rodents and rabbits which are plentiful in Georgia. Because they can survive on just about anything from road kill to persimmons and ...

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - I know you know, but Vaden now in Boro

Living with Children with John Rosemond: The evils of spanking? Well, not so much.

It's time once again for me to clarify my position on spanking. I arrived at this reluctant conclusion because twice in the last week, I've been informed that I believe in it - which is not exactly true.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Enjoy feasts and fellowship this month

Again, recent temperatures belie the season, but it truly is the month of November in south Georgia. Whether warm or crisp, it's the season to be thankful for a bountiful harvest: the love of family and friends and all the memories both have provided throughout the year. Incorporate a spirit of thankfulness in every day with each event, feast or fellowship. Be grateful for the minutiae and the mighty, and enjoy the beauty of November with those you love.

There is a cure for all illness

I have had a certain amount of interest concerning John Forbes Nash Jr. ever since Julie and I saw the very loosely-based movie on his life, "A Beautiful Mind." I also liked the fact that he was born in Bluefield, West Virginia - only a hop, skip and jump from Huntington - and I could claim a certain amount of kinship. The man was a mathematical genius, a schizophrenic and pretty odd. I do not claim any of what I just wrote as kinship. His basic theory was, "any abstract Riemannian manifold can be isometrically realized as a submanifold of Euclidean space."

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Parents unwittingly pass anxiety to their kids

Since the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year, several elementary teachers have asked me why so many of today's kids come to school with anxiety issues. That's a good question, one that I think goes to the heart of contemporary American parenting.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: In the light or the dark: Where will you live?

A preaching friend I knew in south Mississippi about a hundred years ago recently wrote about his summer vacations at his "Granddaddy and Mamaw's" house and the "neat" experience of having to get drinking water via the hand pump and dipper at the well. I wrote him and told him I could remember similar experiences at my dad's family farm in Indiana. The biggest differences, I guess, were the lack of a pump on the well. Grandpa used a bucket, rope and pulley to get the water up, though there was a hand pump attached to the kitchen ...

Kathy Bradley: "Deep and Wide" for grown-ups

The local, as in Savannah, public radio station is off the air right now as a result of damage from a lightning storm. Without the voices of Steve Inskeep and David Greene and - since it's October and the Supreme Court is in session - Nina Totenberg igniting the pilot light of my brain, I have been left to entertain myself as I perform my morning ablutions. So I sing.
