John Bressler - What's it like to be truly free?

What's it like to be truly really free? I guess it depends on who's asking the question. Is it freedom from tyranny, prison, laws, restrictions, demands, reality, parents, obligations, death, poverty, age, limitations?

A real South Georgia spring

Spring in south Georgia - I usually explain to people who are not from around here - generally lasts about three days and those three days are not always consecutive.

Parenting advice with John Rosemond - Don't shy away from discipline

Delete Q: Of late, our 8-year-old daughter has not been completing chores and following directions. On the morning of a recent soccer game, she again failed to follow some simple directions. On the way to the game, I calmly told her that when we arrived, she would tell her coach she was unable to play because she had not followed her parent's directions at home. She balked, so I told her that either she obeyed or she would miss the remainder of the soccer season. She complied, and we went home where she sulked a good bit before ultimately ...

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Who will be the next Small Biz of Year?

With my entrepreneurial days behind me, I do forget sometimes just how hard and stressful it can be to be a small business owner. You haven't lived until you have to make payroll, or let somebody go, not because of job performance, but because the work simply wasn't there. Or maybe your largest client doesn't, or can't pay you, and it ripples throughout your business.

Parenting advice with John Rosemond - Pay for the glasses first

Q: My 16-year-old son refuses to wear his glasses. For the past two years, I have offered to get him contact lenses for his birthday, but he has refused. He will be driving soon, so I told him that if he didn't wear his new glasses, which are less than a month old, he would have to reimburse me for them. He says he hates them and wants contacts. Furthermore, he is willing to pay for them himself out of his savings. Should I let him get the contacts or should I make him pay me for the glasses ...

My Take with Matt Yogus - Eagle Softball in prime position

Not to put too much pressure on Georgia Southern coach Maggie Johnson and her Lady Eagles, but there are plenty of reasons why things couldn't have worked out much better heading into the Southern Conference softball tournament.

Parenting advice with John Rosemond - Take control of your 'monkey'

Q: Our 4-year old is fairly well behaved but her best friend is definitely not. We just got back from a weekend trip with that family, and I was constantly embarrassed at my daughter's behavior. She did whatever her friend did like running down the hall at the hotel, yelling and laughing all the while. Furthermore, because he doesn't listen to his parents at all, she didn't listen to us either. How would you handle that? We are really good friends with his parents, but they really don't seem to parent the same we do or ...

Kathy Bradley - Cicada song

A tractor, a big tractor, its diesel motor droning from across a distant field. That's what it sounded like. Or a box fan, turned on high, held in place by a window sash pulled down tight on its metal frame and blowing out into the hot summer night to create a draft for the rest of the open windows in the house. That's what it sounded like. Or the jet engine of a DC-10 making its final approach to Hartsfield, its shadow an immense gray bird falling over the cars on I-75. That, too, is what it sounded ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - The influence of great parenting

Where would we be without parents? Well, without parents, we wouldn't "be" at all. In creation, God premeditated to continuously populate the earth by the procreative union of husband and wives.

Holli Deal Bragg - Here’s why I was arrested

As police reporter for the Statesboro Herald, I type thousands of arrests that go in the paper every year. I've joked about putting my own name in the paper, though I was confident I would never commit a crime that would require doing so. I still do not feel as if I committed a crime, but I was arrested Monday morning.

What's on my Mind with Holli Deal Bragg - Trail ride down Memory Lane

The sweet scent of honeysuckle tickled my nose as I ducked under a tree limb. I relaxed to the sway of ol' BJ's easy stride as we meandered around pine trees, over fallen logs, across fire breaks and over small hills.

John Bressler - The death of Osama bin Laden

The death of one terrorist tells us a lot about ourselves. There will be those who say, "Who cares?" Others may respond, "Retaliation is not an answer." Possibly some may ask, "Won't this result in more terrorist attacks?"
