John Bressler - How will you change history?

It was November 27, 1922, when archaeologist Howard Carter changed history. For some 15 years, he had been searching for the illusive remains of the legendary boy king Tutankhamen. He was running out of money and time because his benefactors, expecting to make both fortune and fame, had little to show for his efforts except some rather common and hardly valuable artifacts.

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.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Olive Garden nearly ready

I have had many of you ask about the new Olive Garden restaurant that is under construction in Statesboro Crossing. When will the restaurant be ready, and how can one get a job there?

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.

Living with Children with John Rosemond - It's your child's homework, not yours

Q: I homeschooled my oldest, an 8-year-old boy, until this year. He started third grade in public school in August. As a homeschooling mom, I was not a micromanager and don't want to become one now, but the school virtually insists that parents help with homework. I want him to be independent. What are your thoughts on this?

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - He only did it once: the sacrifice of Jesus

According to what may be an apocryphal story, shared by my friend Alan Smith, two visitors were touring the U. S. Naval facility in Annapolis, Maryland. As they followed the tour guide, they noticed several students on their hands and knees examining a courtyard with pencils and clipboards in hand.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: September splendor awaits those with patience

Sweltering temperatures soaring in the 90-degree range makes one wonder if autumn will ever return below the Mason-Dixon line, but with prayers and patience, Southerners too will soon enjoy the splendor of September fall days. Beautiful hues of orange and yellow and red lay hidden until the shorter days of September.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk: South & Vine Public House burned but not broken

During the summer of 2013, just six months after an intriguing new restaurant popped up in downtown Statesboro on the corner of South Main and West Vine streets, I ventured inside to discover a restaurant that would become the backbone of our community and so much more.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Happy kids get old-fashioned parenting

As the old parenting point of view fell out of fashion beginning in the late 1960s, the vernacular that accompanied it all but completely disappeared. Today's parents don't say to their children the sorts of things parents said to children in the 1950s and before, things like "You're acting too big for your britches again, young man."

Kathy Bradley - A mimosa in time

What is this? A mimosa tree? Its slender branches are curved in an arc out over the ditch. Its fingerling leaves are dangling over my head. Its barkless trunk is all but hidden among the grapevines and pine trees and scrub oaks. I have walked by this very spot hundreds of times, driven by it thousands of times. How could I have never noticed a mimosa tree?

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Five-year-old wants to touch his cousin

Q: Our 5-year-old grandson sees his 5-year-old female first cousin from time to time. After they play for a while, he tells her he wants to "touch" her. This has happened twice in recent months. Her parents are very upset, but our grandson's parents read lots of parenting books and seem to think it's no big deal. Your thoughts on this matter?

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - My moment with the queen of Southern cuisine

As many of you may know, Paula Deen recently held two live shows in Savannah as part of her "Paula Deen LIVE!" tour. I had made plans to attend long before her team reached out to me in late July, and I wouldn't in my wildest dreams have imagined the events that followed.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Our victories come from God

Somewhere in the neighborhood of 20 years or so ago (not long after Carole and I moved from Arkansas to Statesboro), I learned of an opportunity to tour a WWII vintage U.S. Army Air Force B-17 bomber on display at the Statesboro airport. The study of history has been a favorite pursuit of mine since college, so I jumped at the chance to actually see this famous aircraft, "up close and personal!"

The classroom of life

It looks like we're going to have a great semester here at old East Georgia State College! The hallways are packed and students are trying to find their room assignments, make new friends, wait in long lines at the book store and just get comfortable with life after high school. It's not easy! You'd think that with all these electronic gizmos and computer knowledge, these young folks have the answers of the universe in the palms of their hands. Confusion reigns!
