Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Yummy! Cookie Cutters opening on Monday

I just love "happy" food - food that invokes memories of good times and joyous occasions. Years ago when our children were small, we lived in Tampa, Florida. On Friday afternoons, I would stop by the Alessi Bakery and pick up a few iced sugar cookies in different colors and designs to take home to our two girls and their friends.

John Bressler - I can live with that hope

When grandmothers get together, what do they talk about? If this were Jeopardy, the answer would be so simple, "Grandchildren!" And so, Shelba began to lovingly talk about Jonathan McGahee, a middle grandson home from Iraq on leave, soon to return, and what he was doing over there. She spoke of a young, likable, passionate outdoorsman with a heart as big as the world who realizes he has a responsible job and does what must be done. "He won't talk about danger or stress because he doesn't want his family to worry. He's glad to be home ...

John Bressler - Check out the Bible; it's still a great read

"A", "an" and "the" are the most common articles. While "a" and "an" are called indefinite or non-specific, the article "the" is both definite and specific. Hold this thought for a while.

Spring is always a flirt. Occasionally a tease. But this year, ah, this year Spring has been nothing short of ... well, a liar.

Holli Deal Bragg - Rest in peace, Black Betty

It's funny how we become attached to things. Things, not people. Sometimes it seems inanimate objects actually have personalities, and we come to view them like old friends.

Want a Census job? Then apply right now

I saw some literature last week from the U.S. Census Bureau stating that the organization was actively hiring in our area. Today, I was able to speak with two people that are working for the Census Bureaus, but unfortunately, neither could speak officially for the organization.

John Bressler - Quiet on the set, the director is speaking

Last week, our Friday night bunch went to the Emma Kelly Theater to share laughter, tears and real life experiences with the cast of "The Funeral Club." As the play unfolded, I couldn't help but realize that we knew just about everyone in the audience and we were among friends who could not only identify with but share together a touching moment in time.

Almost everybody has heard of the "Flying Tigers," the American pilots who were fighting the Japanese, but few people know of its Bulloch County connection. Their commander, General Robert Lee Scott Jr., or "Scotty" as he was called when he was young was born in Waynesboro on April 12, 1908, but spent much of his childhood living with his grandfather B.H. Scott in Bulloch County.

Opinion - $565 million in cuts to state's higher education budget is irresponsible

Legislators are expected to meet in Atlanta today to go over proposals from Georgia's 35 colleges and universities to cut $565 million from their budgets.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Job applicants flock to the Olive Garden

This is a time of mixed signals for sure. On one hand, government officials and financial analysts report our economy is growing again and that the era of job "letting" has eased.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Make autumn awesome for the whole family

The weather in the 'Boro seems bent on keeping us guessing. Is it a raincoat day? Sweater day? Or shorts-and-sunglasses day? But the gentle tease of recent cool weather lets us know fall truly is coming, eventually, maybe in December. Enjoy all that fall offers, regardless of the thermometer, and make this an incredibly awesome autumn with your family. Celebrate the usual - fair week, Columbus Day, football games, church fall festivals and trick-or-treat night - and add a few of the zany but real holidays below to the family calendar for October.
