John Bressler - Happy and blessed to call Statesboro home

I was sitting in the waiting room, office, dog house and spa of Jappy Stringer's gas station waiting for the car to get its annual oil change and bulb replacement feeling warm all over. It was 32 degrees F outside but felt pretty good inside as I was close to the heater and the Stringer's dog, Gracie, a 100-pound German Shepherd, was sitting on my lap. Who says no to a dog the size of a Volkswagen?

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - U.S. currency keeps evolving

The popular and informal "National Motto" of the United States, "In God We Trust," was ordered to be added to all currency in 1955, and first appeared on the 1957 $1 Silver Certificates and then the 1963 Federal Reserve Notes. The American dollar was redesigned once again in 1996, when new $100 and then $20 bills were released to foil counterfeiters. Unfortunately, they soon had copies of the new bills flowing freely.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Optometrist Deal brings 'vision' to office

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - It's time to give immature son 'painful' lesson

Q: My husband and I have micromanaged, spoiled, and enabled our 21-year-old son all his life. We paid a heavy price during his teen years. At this point, he is arrogant, immature, and irresponsible. For example, he recently went online and posted a vile comment about a former girlfriend. When we confronted him about it, he told us she deserved it. We realize the error of our ways, but our need to protect him from the consequences of his impulsivity and irresponsibility is so strong that we can't seem to break the habit. On the positive side, he holds ...

Kathy Bradley - Not a resolution

It was early. The sky was a solid gun-metal gray. The rain smelled like summer rain, light and a little musty. It fell softly and met the concrete lip of the carport like the skirt of a ball gown lowered over satin shoes. A womb outside a womb, the morning pulled me from the warmth and stillness of the house into the cool and stillness of the day.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Start New Year off in fun way

Tinsel and lights have made their way back to the attic just in time for the dawn of a new year. And this year, 2012, the calendar treats us to an extra day, as February 29th leaps onto the page. Lay aside useless resolutions and instead of making preposterous promises and plans to lose pounds, plan one very important objective for 2012 – make loved ones a priority, orchestrating special times with family and friends. Count stars and pick wildflowers; roast marshmallows and camp on the den floor; bake cookies and read books; dance in puddles and chase butterflies. Celebrate 366 ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - His was the most unusual birth of all

The Bible has a lot to say about the birth of Jesus. All of them are important. But none are more important than the manner of His conception. It could be a misconception on my part, but it seems this is a topic not emphasized as much as it used to be.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - It's good to just say NO!

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - What became of Rebel gold?

Due to a difficulty in acquiring additional gold and silver bullion, the Confederate Congress closed all three mints after existing bullion had been used up. Therefore, the Confederacy desperately needed some other sources of local currency in order to encourage normal commerce. Many Southern states promptly created their own paper scrip, and the new Confederate Post Office began printing its own "postal currency."

Kathy Bradley - Cotton plant prophet

I first noticed it on Sunday - a sycamore leaf, the size of a spread hand and the color of cured tobacco, was stuck in the stems of a cotton plant at the edge of the driveway. Surprisingly, it was still there Wednesday morning, having withstood a couple of days of stiff wind and one day of sustained rain. Obviously, I was meant to take note. I got out of the car and walked to the edge of the field for a closer look.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - 'O little town of Bethlehem'

Sometimes we can only wonder at the working of God, and the way he chooses to bring about his ends. It is true that "God moves in a mysterious way, his wonders to perform."

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - War creates 2 currencies

By 1850, America's supplies of silver had been nearly exhausted as the mother lodes of silver ore discovered out west had been mined dry. The majority of existing American silver dollars were being melted down and sold back to the mint at greatly inflated prices in order to provide it with silver bullion with which it could mint new coins.
