Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - A fond farewell to the Trellis Garden Inn

It certainly isn't uncommon to see a business close its doors these days, and it isn't something that I enjoy reporting, but a few people have contacted the Herald saddened by the closing of the Trellis Garden Inn in downtown Statesboro.

Kathy Bradley - Where is thy sting

One by one - purse, briefcase, gym bag - I toss into the car the tangible burdens with which I begin each day. I pause just long enough to watch wide brown sycamore leaves, curled like arthritic hands, scuttle nervously across the yard in response to an asthmatic breeze. Somewhere down the road a diesel engine grinds up a hill and its sound vibrates over empty fields and against my cheeks. It is dawn. It is autumn. It is still.

Lord, help us better understand...and be thankful.

John Bressler - I am a believer in providence

Very recently, I mentioned goal setting and how important it is to have a direction and a plan for life. This does not mean that every hope is fulfilled and every expectation met. Too many folks would rather believe that life is a crap shoot - the throwing of dice - and that means to rely on the slim possibility that luck will slap them on the head when it's their turn. If that were the case, then preparation for the day is to always have a regimented order when it comes to getting dressed, what must be worn, the specific ...

Bulloch Genealogy with Roger Allen - Rawls settle in Bulloch and Screven

The family name Rawls comes from the "Olde German" name 'Rolf.' This in turn comes from the Viking clan Hrolfr," which translates roughly to '"Fame-Wolf." The Rawls name didn't show up in England until the 13th Century.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Mr. McMillan: 50 years at Howard Lumber

Record unemployment numbers are clearly frightening. They are frightening for those that are looking for a job, and those who are concerned about their job security in a sputtering economy.

John Bressler - See it! Believe it! Achieve it!

Because we have been working on goal setting and thinking about the future and what skills can be applied to give us a fighting chance, it triggered a memory of a particular passage of scripture that can be very controversial: Philippians 2:12, "Work out your salvation with fear and trembling..." Are you telling me that I have to somehow save myself? I don't think so."

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Cleve White is selling Nissan dealership

I think many of you may be surprised to hear that Cleve White, owner of Cleve White Nissan in Statesboro, has sold his dealership. When I spoke with White this past weekend, he confirmed the deal was signed, and as of Nov. 15, he would no longer be the owner of the dealership that he founded 10 years ago.

Kathy Bradley - By water and words

A few Sundays ago, on a luminous October morning, my great-nephew was baptized. Sunshine slanted through the stained glass windows like a sword's swath, stippled the curves of the dark wooden pews with shards of golden light and afforded dust motes a spotlight within which to dance.

John Bressler - It's a tough job market out there

I am glad that elections are over for the time being and now all will be waiting for the shoe to drop. By that, I mean it will be put up or shut up time. A huge fact: this voting public may be some of the most informed and motivated as most are far less concerned about the looks and demeanor of a candidate as they are about the credentials and ability each hopefully possesses. To boil this all down, the candidates have made a career choice, the electors have set high standards and all who voted will not be ...

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Give thanks & eat turkey

Copious turkey decorations everywhere we turn signify that Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Though it shouldn't take a ceramic or wooden turkey to remind us to be thankful, November seems to prompt us to be more aware of our blessings. Use every day this month to appreciate the blessings in your life - family, friends, freedom, beautiful weather, gorgeous autumn colors abounding, delicious harvest foods, and each precious day. Celebrate a season of thankfulness and the celebrations below.

Our View

Michael and Kathy Lee Gatto's son was killed in a violent and tragic incident at Rude Rudy's bar in Statesboro last August. Now they hope a law they are proposing would create more responsible ownership in all businesses that serve alcohol in Georgia.

A life of commitment

Chip had an excellent sermon this past Sunday and gave me a jump-start on 2015. An excellent sermon is when I don't drift off somewhere during the delivery, don't try to re-write it like I think it should be and put the good stuff in the back of my mind so I can rethink it later on. The title was a humdinger, "What did God do with the gold?" The content was about commitment. I also agree that I really need to know what He did with the money - even though He can do whatever He chooses - because ...

Living with Children with John Rosemond - Lavish parties, gifts and trips are 'just plain nuts'

A reader writes that her friends "recently spent around $300 on their daughter's birthday party - her first. They bought lots of stuff to entertain their young guests and extended family. The child, a baby, obviously had no clue what was going on. I should mention that the parents are struggling to make ends meet." She asks for my take on this.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Thank God for a fresh start

One of the more popular shows currently on the small screen is "American Pickers," starring business partners Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz. They travel the country in their large van, searching through barns, back yards - literally anywhere they can find old pieces of what most would call junk but that they think they can sell in their two Antique Archaeology stores. I could be wrong, but it seems a safe bet that neither Mike nor Frank got very excited as kids about Christmas or birthday parties, as both normally include gifts that are new rather than old.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Make the most of 2015

Fireworks and sparkling grape juice, off-key "Auld Lang Syne" tunes, a large falling ball, horns and hugs and kisses ushered in a new year. Do you have dreams and hopes for 2015? Whatever your plans for the new year, make family and loved ones a priority with lots of special time and celebrations to treasure for much longer than 365 days.

Guest column: Learning from rape controversy

Amid allegations, speculations, and opinions whirling around regarding both the journalistic reporting of the alleged University of Virginia rape and the accuracy of the alleged rape itself, it's important to note how this national news story can shape our knowledge about sexual violence.

Guest column: Intelligent faith vs. atheism

As the pastor who initiated the presentation of the manger scene I have special interest in the response from the community and would like to add a few insights to the conversation.

A message to atheists

If the atheists in Bulloch County know that there is no god, then why do they care when and where I pray? And why are they rankled by a nativity scene in downtown Statesboro? If I choose to enslave my mind, as indicated on their banner on the courthouse lawn, then why does that bother them so much?

Kathy Bradley: Random twinkling

From the road, the wreath on the door and the swags over the windows look just right. From the road, they are even and balanced, the wire-edged ribbons are full and round and the ends flutter just the least little bit in the winter breeze. From the road, the blue on the door and the blue in the ribbons match perfectly and from the road the tiny white lights on the tree fill up the windows at the corner of the house.
