Kathy Bradley - Life is good and winter won't last forever

Sometime around Thanksgiving I heard a radio broadcaster announce that the meteorologists for the state were predicting a colder and wetter winter than usual. I say give those boys and girls a gold star. Winter won't be officially over for another six weeks or so, but their prophesies have been fulfilled.

Bulloch Geneaology with Roger Allen - Hodges family roots date back to 1200

The Hodges are a family of great antiquity. Variations in spelling occurred in their names over time, including Hoegges (pronounced ho-edges), Hogge, Hoge, Haig, Haigh, Hage, Hogue, Hodges, Hodge, Hodgis, Hodgins and even Hodgson. The family immigrated to Holland to escape persecution for their religious beliefs, and changed the spelling of their name to 'Hague.'

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - South Georgia becomes a center of Indian activity

The first white man to meet Georgia's native peoples was Dr. Henry Woodward, a surgeon and world traveler, who had joined the English colonists sailing to the area which would become the Carolina colonies. In 1670, Woodward journeyed far inland to the Indian village of Cofitachequi located between the lands of the Creeks and the Cherokees.

Matt Yogus on Sports - Signing Day: It is what it is

First off, let me just throw this out there – the media (yes, myself included) makes way too big a hoopla out of National Signing Day.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - What’s hot in Bulloch’s real estate market?

I jog several times a week, and therefore, have a lot of opportunity to look at real estate within Statesboro's city limits. This past Saturday as I was "cruising" by property "for sale" signs, a thought occurred to me.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Short month is long on fun

There must be a reason that the shortest month of the year was chosen to contain the most romantic, love-filled day of the entire year. Heart-shaped cards and candy and everything pink and red remind us regularly that February is the month of LOVE. Use all twenty-eight days of this month to show the ones that you love just how very special they are to you. Start with a few of the celebrations below, then make up some of your own.

Holli Deal Bragg - A little common sense needed from city council

Vendors from the currently closed Statesboro Flea Market filled almost half the seats in the Statesboro City Council meeting room Tuesday morning, hoping councilmen would see to reason and rescind a recent order that the market be closed due to lack of compliance with city ordinances.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Tankersley getting recognition she deserves

Recently, it was reported in the Statesboro Magazine that Bulloch County commissioner Jan Tankersley had been named one of Georgia Trend's 100 Most Influential Georgians for 2010. Suffice it to say, it is a powerful list ranging from Georgia's governor to the CEO(s) of Coca-Cola, Georgia Power, and AFLAC.

Kathy Bradley - Somebody like Lucy who's always willing to receive

My friend Lucy is 8 years old. She's about as big as a minute and has huge round eyes that are green as a gourd. And she has a head full of tight curls that, without anything else, would have endeared her to me. Lucy loves her dog Frannie, "High School Musical" and beating the grown-ups playing Wii. It is one of the great joys of my life that I got to stand with her and her parents as a judge signed the papers that confirmed what we'd known from the beginning - Lucy belongs to us.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Christians are part of Christ’s spiritual body

Thinking of God involves more than many realize. It means thinking not only of his existence, his person and his nature, but also of the things he has created. The Bible says, and nature demonstrates, that God created the universe and everything in it. Genesis 1 and many other passages give us some understanding – though far from complete – of the nature of his work in creation. We don't have to understand the "how" of God's creation in order to appreciate the reality of it.

Holli Deal Bragg - Moonlight, frogs and dirt road riding

The weather was warm for January - a balmy 68 degrees. That, paired with rain earlier that day, brought the frogs out to serenade the world. It felt like springtime, and Stan suggested a dirt road ride.

John Bressler - One thing you can be sure of is that God will surely provide

It is hard if not difficult to find good public articles that are unbiased and attempt to give facts and not opinions. The recent edition of The Atlantic wrote, "Did Christianity Cause the Crash?" As the writer suggests, "America's mainstream religious denominations used to teach the faithful that they would be rewarded in the afterlife. But over the past generation, a different strain of Christian faith has proliferated - one that promises to make believers rich in the here and now. Known as the prosperity gospel...."

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - Three cool ways to enjoy summer watermelon

Where there's watermelon, there's usually a good time. They instantly take a beach trip or picnic to the next level. Georgia may be the Peach State, but we're also among the leading five states in the U.S. that consistently produce watermelons.

On fruit production, the Jesus way

"Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing … But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted! When you produce much fruit, you are my true disciples. This brings great glory to my Father." (John 15:5-8)

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.
