Q: My 5-year-old daughter relies on me far too much. All through the day, she asks me to do simple things for her like get her a glass of water or help her put on her shoes-things she is able to do for herself. If I don't cooperate, she begins to whine, then cry. It's driving me crazy. Another thing she wants is for me to watch her play. She just can't seem to be alone or entertain herself. At bed, for example, she wants me to lie down with her until she falls asleep. It ...
The Turner Brothers (A.C. and D.B.) controlled, in addition to the Bulloch Herald, rights to three more papers: the Bulloch Times, the Statesboro News, and the Statesboro Star. In 1917, these three papers were then combined into a single paper, the Bulloch Times, and then sold shortly thereafter to the Millers.
When your husband tells you it's time to move your home grown business out of your house and into a storefront, then you must be doing something right. That is exactly what happened to Jahala Akins, whose cake and dessert baking business grew too much for their kitchen to handle.
November Sunday. Two words that, together, do not ordinarily conjure up images of bare feet and air-kiss breezes. And, yet, on this November Sabbath, the sun, which is growing more visibly distant each day, seems to have slipped back into the parlor with a wink and a flirtatious smile for one final curtsy to summer.
Located initially on the second floor of the Bulloch County Courthouse, the Bulloch Banner was sold to J.A. Brannen in 1889, who was working at that time as the associate editor of the Swainsboro Forest Blade. He renamed the paper the Statesboro Eagle.
Today is America Recycles Day. So in that vein, I decided to talk about a local business that is all into recycling.
Q: Several years ago, I married a widower who never disciplined his children. They are now 9, 14, and 16 and he still has a very difficult time denying them anything. I love them very much and think of them as my own, but I often feel like the "bad guy." In this situation, should he be the main disciplinarian? He's given me the responsibility (he has a very demanding job, thus his at-home hours are not reliable) and sometimes I feel like I'm drowning!
If any early Georgian managed to get a hold of a copy of a newspaper, be it from Boston or New York or Philadelphia, that was quite a feat. Once acquired, that newspaper was something to be treasured. Every page was read and reread many times before it was even considered that someone else might borrow it and take it from your home.
Allens, it would seem, have been around forever. In Irish, the name Ailin would translate as someone who was hard and inflexible; while in Scotland the old family name Aluinn would translate as someone who was handsome.
Several years ago, we celebrated our first Statesboro Christmas. Being that we were in a new home, I wanted to make it special. I decided I wanted to do a red and silver themed tree, and I wanted to make it perfect. I went to the store and picked out as many red and silver ornaments as I could possibly find. But after I decorated the tree, I realized it was missing something.
Q: My 1-year-old has started slapping us. He also screams a lot, often for no reason, or at least we can't figure out the reason. He is a very busy little boy and won't sit still for longer than a few seconds. Is it too early to begin disciplining him?
Aren't the colors of autumn just brilliant this year? One can't possibly walk outside without spotting a gorgeous canvas of fall colors splashed against a background of beautiful blue sky, white puffy clouds, and patches of greenery from evergreens.

Celebrate with some of the holidays below, or create your own Thanksgiving traditions with family and friends.
The English word 'bank' comes from the Italian work 'banco,' which roughly translated as 'bench'. It turns out Italian moneychangers actually transacted their business from benches as early as 1157.
The opening words of the greatest sermon ever given are "Blessed are the poor in spirit." The "Sermon on the Mount" is the cornerstone of Jesus' teachings about the Kingdom of God. The beatitudes are the foundation of the sermon, and this beatitude is the heart of the group of beatitudes.
Two more ligustrum are gone, the two that guarded either side of the front steps. They were well over six feet tall, too tall for me to trim from the ground, too dangerous to try to trim leaning off the porch, so they constantly sported asymmetrical spikes of bright yellow and neon green that made them look like herbaceous rock stars.
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.
It's been more than a week since the Statesboro City Council voted unanimously to accept a settlement agreement that closed Rudy Rudy's for good and required owner Johnathan Starkey to never again apply for a liquor license in the city.
(Note: The following is the first of a series of articles looking at the history and evolution of agriculture in Georgia and Bulloch County.)
