Begin 2014 with God

"I hated my work, because when I die I will leave all I have done to a complete stranger who might be competent or a complete idiot. I will have spent a lifetime on work which will be given away. What a waste!" (My translation of Ecclesiastes 2:18-19).

Coming back home

I recently visited Statesboro for the first time in a long while and I was pleasantly surprised to find that the Boro has grown appreciably yet still retains its small-town charm.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Toddlers should not be allowed to dictate what they eat

Q: Our son is 3 1/2 and for the most part eats very well. We make up his plate for each meal, and he has to eat what is on his plate, or at least try each food on the plate before he can get more of something he really likes. We also make sure that he remains seated during the entire meal. Sometimes he will request fruit before he is finished with his dinner. We tell him he first has to finish what's on his plate first. Should we be forcing him to eat his main meal ...

Kathy Bradley - For want of a fire

The wreath is still on the back door. The jingle bells tied to its branches reflect just enough of the floodlights at the corner of the house to make tiny blue and green starbursts. The ends of the big peacock-colored bow move only slightly in the night breeze. Christmas is over, and I really should have taken it down.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Make every day a holiday in 2014

A brand new year, with new beginnings, fresh starts and a wealth of warm memories with loved ones to carry us through the year. Whatever resolutions you've made and possibly already cast aside, I pray that a top priority will always be family. Create lasting memories of quality time spent together, and fashion fun adventures to treasure: Play board games, cook new recipes, go hiking, paint pictures, read books, watch old movies, chase fireflies and watch for eagles, build forts and camp out in the den, roast marshmallows, meet new friends, help someone in need, write songs and race ...

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Watch how Pladd Dot makes its guitars

I want to tell you all about an interesting "tourism" option here in Statesboro. Last year, I wrote an article about Pladd Dot Music owner Chris Mitchell opening a 7,500-square-foot manufacturing facility for amplifiers and guitars just off U.S. Highway 301 North.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - New Year's Day brunch featuring grape salad

New Year's Eve is usually a late night for my friends and me, and breakfast time is gone with the sunrise when we awake around mid-morning. Brunch, then, is the perfect meal to ring in the new year. A combination of breakfast and lunch typically eaten by 3 p.m., brunch originated in England in the late 1800s and became popular in the United States in the 1930s.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - New museum coming to old Shoney's location

I cannot tell you how pleased and excited I was when Heidi Jeffers called me last week. Jeffers is the executive director of the Statesboro Convention and Visitors Bureau. She called to let me know that the organization had just entered into a contract to purchase the former location of the Shoney's restaurant on South Main Street.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Son's behavior changes could point to video game addiction

Q: My 6-year-old daughter has recently learned to say, "You're hurting my feelings." This is part of her school's anti-bullying program. The problem is, she's now saying it to me when I discipline her. What should I say to her?

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 ...
