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!"

Words written in the firmament

Every morning, I get to look into the eyes of the most beautiful lady I have ever seen. I smile at her and she says, "Good morning, Doofus!" with a smile that makes my day. All week I get to drive on some back roads - hopefully avoiding the ubiquitous deer - to be at East Georgia State and surrounded by students of all shapes and sizes and some of the nicest colleagues you'd ever want to meet. My office is on the south side and I am within spitball range of three historians, two great English professors, a first class ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Benefits of vaccines outweigh the risks

First, a full disclosure: I have been vaccinated against measles, mumps, diphtheria, rubella, whooping cough, smallpox and shingles and have had none of these maladies. At one time or another, my wife received all of these same vaccinations. Our kids were both immunized, and they have chosen to have their kids immunized. None of us has ever had an adverse reaction to a vaccination.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: 'Get the jump' on sin and prepare with God's word

Clothing stores normally display new fashions well ahead of the season. Stores here in Statesboro have had spring fashions out for several weeks, even though spring is several weeks away. An iron-clad rule for merchandisers is to "get the jump" on the buying seasons. In a spiritual context, Christians should be interested in "getting the jump" on sin, being prepared for temptation when it comes. This can be done if we'll apply some basic principles.

Editorial - Making Statesboro safer: A good start

A significant drop in the crime rate reported last week by the Statesboro Police Department is good news, indeed, and a positive sign that recent efforts at increasing cooperation between local law enforcement agencies is working. Based on data compiled by the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting Program, Part 1 crimes - the most serious and violent crimes - dropped 10.5 percent in 2014 compared to 2013.

No time for distractions

I was talking to a colleague Monday and ended up in a remarkable conversation that went from exercise to distractions and eventually to Christianity. Hey! I don't plan these meetings. They just seem to happen. Let's call them Providence.

Black History Month

I came to know about "Blind Willie" McTell late in my life - about 11 years ago when I was working on Del Presley's "A Place to Call Home" at the brand new Emma Kelly Theater.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Celebrate the "love month"

Seems a little unreasonable that the month of February, the one that touts hearts and love and sweethearts and chocolate, is the shortest month on the calendar. But, that just means extra care and attention must be given each day to those we love. Warm up the days in February with time spent with family - bundle up and go for long walks, roast marshmallows, read books under the covers or gather in the kitchen and prepare a big pot of soup. Make every day a celebration with unique ideas or try some of the holidays below.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: These parents may need some therapy

My column of a few weeks back in which I described real-life parenting scenarios that qualified the parents in question for a diagnosis of "just plain nuts" was a big hit. Since it ran, readers have sent me numerous examples of parents who indeed seem to qualify as JPN and be in need, therefore, of You Ought to be Ashamed of Yourself Therapy.
