Fun with Family with Julie Lavender - Mistletoe and merriment in the month of December

It is so hard to believe another year is almost history. There are just a few days left to decorate, shop, wrap, bake, visit, light candles and sing carols. Remember to keep the holiday frenzy in check, being mindful of what's really important during the Christmas season. Make the most of every day this month with family traditions, and try celebrating a few of the following holidays.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Hodges Antiques grows a ton since 1993

For several years, I commuted back and forth on Highway 67 South to Bryan County serving as a school psychologist in the Bryan County school system. Each day, I would pass Hodges Antiques, occasionally stopping in.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Parents cannot solve children's problems for them

Q: My 11-year-old son cuts corners on everything. If he does a chore, he'll leave the cleaning products behind. If his bed is hard to make, he hides the sheet in the closet and throws the blanket over the bed. Concerning his schoolwork, he doesn't bother studying for tests - he figures he'll gets A's, anyway. We're now seeing this in his soccer practices, where he literally has started cutting corners. How can we get a handle on this bad habit?

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - Give the gift of food this Christmas

Now that December is here, Christmas shopping is in full swing! It's the season of giving, and while material things are always nice to have, my favorite gifts to offer come from the heart of my home, the kitchen. Most folks can be found at the mall hunting for presents this time of year, but you'd have better luck finding me on the baking aisle of the grocery store. My shopping budget is spent on brown sugar and sprinkles, festive packaging and condensed milk.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Buy a 'Paul's Angel' and help battle cancer

Herald editorial - King settlement should protect Ogeechee River

After about seven years of discharging effluent from its textiles plant into the Ogeechee River without a permit, King America Finishing is no longer in violation of federal law because King finally does have a permit. Georgia's Environmental Protection Division issued the permit earlier this week to the Screven County plant, nearly 18 months after a massive fish kill drew attention to what King America was discharging into the Ogeechee, and also the fact the company was doing so with a permit that was invalidated in 2006.

Kathy Bradley - Crossing against the light

In the navy blue of just dark, the headlights illuminate only a few feet in front of the car. The high beams give shadows to the rocks on the road directly in front of the tires in outlandish proportion to their size, but the hundred-foot pines on the other side of the ditch remain invisible. Behind me, the full moon is but a promise, not even a tease of her liquid silver light yet spilling over the horizon.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Using 'The Doctor' technique helps child eat

The mother of a 4-year-old boy shared an interesting story with me the other day. At age 2, her son began chewing meat to the point where it became liquid, but would not swallow. The parents became worried and began attempting various means of persuading him to swallow. Nothing worked, which increased the parents' anxiety and, likewise, the energy they put into the swallowing project.

Fun with Family with Julie Lavender - Enjoy the splendor of spring with family

Though there were days when we thought winter would never end, the beauty surrounding us in shades of green and blossoms of every color convinces onlookers that spring actually has arrived. Don't waste a minute of this glorious season - get outdoors and smell the flowers, run barefoot in the grass, go for late-evening walks, and fire up the grill for a family picnic. Create some new springtime celebrations for your family to enjoy, or take part in the following April holidays.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Be a parent, not a friend

Q: My 14-year-old daughter says I don't trust her because, unlike her best friend's parents, I won't allow her to stay home alone for several days while I go out of town. Her friend's parents do this at least once a month while they go to their second home, and their two teenagers - 14 and 16 - have thrown at least two raucous alcohol (and most likely sex) parties in their absence.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Tackle problems when the iron is cold

Q: Our 4-year-old daughter has a huge problem with being laughed at. She loves to be goofy and do funny things, but as soon as someone, including one of us, laughs at her, she becomes upset. She will say "Don't laugh!" or "I don't want you to laugh at me!" We explain that we aren't laughing at her but at the funny things she does. We've also told her that we laugh because we are happy and having a good time with her. Is there a different way to explain this to her so that she ...

Kathy Bradley - A parade and a pyramid

Jackson is almost 4 - that age at which he understands his separateness from other people but does not yet understand the separateness of his emotions. His will is clear and distinct, but his heart is still one with the world. Whatever is happening to him, be it highest joy or deepest sorrow, is happening to the world. That thing - the filter, the wall, the individuation of identity that will eventually teach him that this is not so, that his feelings are uniquely his and that not everyone can be trusted with them - has yet to take hold.

A memorable spring break

Last week, while most students were vacationing in such exotic faraway places like Panama Beach, Daytona Beach or Hopeulikeit, Julie and I had the wonderful opportunity to run down to Sarasota, Florida, to see our daughter and family and our middle son, George, from California. For those of you who don't know the scenario, from the day after Thanksgiving to the day after Easter, Florida fills up like a test tube full of Snowbirds who eat everything in sight, drive like maniacs and play very bad golf.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Fear is not always a bad thing

I recently came across a 1951 article my late mother saved from the Charleston (S.C.) News and Courier. Titled "Agency Offers Pointers on How Parents Can Guide Their Child's Emotional Development," it is proof that parents and professionals of three generations ago possessed a wealth of common sense, a quality that has since become most uncommon.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - Celebrate spring with strawberries

Happy spring! We have survived the long, cold, dark, snowy and rainy days of winter, and I couldn't be happier to lay the power outages to rest and welcome the sunshine, watch the azaleas reveal their colors and see the earth bloom back to life. I've always loved this season, and I may be a little biased. My birthday is in April, the Masters golf tournament returns to my hometown of Augusta, Ga., and my family and I keep I-95 South hot with trips to my favorite vacation destination: St. Simons Island in the beautiful Golden Isles of ...
