My Take with Matt Yogus - Some advice for the new offense

There are only a handful of guys in Georgia Southern's offense who have any real, in-game experience playing college football, fewer that have played their current position before and, by the way, only one quarterback has any in-game experience at all.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Textbook costs create market for renters

I am sure that we are all pretty used to seeing the little signs that are posted next to the road advertising everything from apartment rentals to candidates seeking political office. In fact, they have become "old hat", and frankly I don't pay much attention to them anymore, in most cases.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - God will never fail any of us

Probably just about everybody has seen one. They're very common-place, and, as far as I know, can be seen just about anywhere in the world. Some are more complete in their development, but they're all beautiful. Conditions have to be just right, but it's the conditions that make them such wonderful reminders.

Kathy Bradley - We'll cross that bridge ...

Start across the Sidney Lanier Bridge from either direction and, just before you reach the crest, you will become convinced that you are going to drive straight into the sky. On a hot July day - when white puffy clouds approach like meringues, seductive with soporific sweetness, clouds that look like the blow-up slides used to rescue passengers from airplanes - that's exactly what you want to do.

John Bressler - Music is definitely a gift from God

I have always wondered if a caveman - most likely a cave woman - just missing being eaten by a T-Rex, hummed a tune and that was the beginning of music. I am not sure if he or she had words to the tune like, "I'm so glad that the big lizard ate she and not me … dum ditty dum." Don't get me going on what I think the first "rock" band resembled.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Why I love it when GSU students return

Every summer, I am reminded just how important Georgia Southern has become to Statesboro and the prosperity of its full time residents. Things clearly slow down here in the summer months, and business owners will admit that it can be a struggle.

John Bressler - 'God's word cannot be compromised'

Joshua was now an old and weathered man who had been with the Israelites through the invasion into Canaan and wanted to be absolutely certain this young nation to be understood their responsibilities and their loyalties to the God who had brought them this far.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - To Facebook or not to Facebook? I'm all in

I used to think naively that social networking (i.e., Facebook) had nothing to do with business. Well, I missed the boat on that one. I have always understood how Facebook can be used as a marketing tool. However, it is the covert side of the social networking site that took me by surprise.

Kathy Bradley - My job is to find the truth

The table is large and round. The food is good. The conversation is warm and inclusive. We laugh a lot. Some of the laughter is directed at each other. Some of it is directed toward the unspeakable matters with which we deal every day and which we can't share with the people we love, the unavoidable dark humor of those who see the worst in humanity and manage, somehow, not to fall into the abyss themselves.

John Bressler - Our mission is to change the world one person at a time

In my old age, I often think that all children should be taught how to cook from scratch. Nowadays, too many folks of all walks of life want stuff now, prepackaged and in easy heat, open and eat containers. I am not saying that we have to return to our roots where we planted, tended, harvested, canned or processed our future food. What I am moving towards is our ability to get away from the answer and work hard on the method to get the answer. In other words, "I got the solution the hard way. I worked for it!"

Turning to the channel of life

I was listening to good old 91.1, the public radio station, and heard about something I found hard to believe. Hold that thought for just a minute. Trying to find a decent show on television can be a heartbreaker at times. There are so many of those so-called reality shows on these days and I have a very difficult time wondering why anyone would watch them.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Arguing is no fun for parents or children

I absolutely love it when people begin to realize that the problems they're having with a child are of their own making; when they begin to realize, in other words, that the child is not the problem - they are! All this time (however long that might be), they've been trying to correct the wrong person - the child - getting nowhere and becoming nothing but frustrated in the process. Instead, they need to correct themselves, and it goes without saying that correcting one's self is much, much easier than trying to correct someone else.

Column: What about the children?

They are hungry and frightened, but the fear of the unknown isn't nearly as bad as the fear of the known.

The importance of education

It's that time of the year when the school system, from elementary to university level, start the prayers, organize the planning, order the books and stand back for the onrush of hopefully eager and determined students who will learn everything possible in preparation for the day of days! That day of days is when students get a full-time job, move out of the house and begin sending a portion of their vast earnings to good old mom and dad who will spend the rest of their days in frivolity and relaxation.
