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. Each time you walk outside and see the splendor, be reminded of your blessings during this Thanksgiving season. Share blessings with those you love each day this month. 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.
"Today's debate will be between some very respected and recognizable speakers from around the country and a relative unknown from the small province of Galilee. In all fairness, our panel needs no introduction and they have all agreed to let the newcomer speak first out of professional courtesy. So, let's hear from the young man we'll refer to as Jesus who we understand was trained as a carpenter by His deceased father, Joseph. Opening statement?"
Last week, Frontier Communications Corporation (NYSE: FTR) chairman and CEO Maggie Wilderotter came to Statesboro as part of a plan to visit each of Frontier's properties and its employees.
The first bank to open in Bulloch County was the Bank of Statesboro, which although chartered in 1891 didn't actually open its doors for business until 1894. The bank's first President was J.L. Coleman, its Vice President was W.C. Parker, and its Head Cashier was S.C. Groover.
Q: My husband won't allow our 17-year-old daughter to date. She is an excellent student, very involved in activities at school and church, and has never given us any major problems. A rather brave boy has tried repeatedly to ask my husband to date our daughter, but my husband won't even give him the time of day, despite the fact that he's a good kid from a good home. We know his family, and it's become embarrassing for all of us, except my husband, that is. He refuses to even discuss it. The whole situation is ...
In the minds of students and teachers, summer is over. But sweltering temperatures and the calendar beg to differ. Postpone the culmination of the season with additional summertime fun and memories. Enjoy every minute of leftover summer days with celebrations, including, but not limited to, the following August holidays.
They are hungry and frightened, but the fear of the unknown isn't nearly as bad as the fear of the known.
It's that time of the year when the school system, from elementary to university level, start the prayers, organize the planning, order the books and stand back for the onrush of hopefully eager and determined students who will learn everything possible in preparation for the day of days! That day of days is when students get a full-time job, move out of the house and begin sending a portion of their vast earnings to good old mom and dad who will spend the rest of their days in frivolity and relaxation.
Q: Using your advice, I successfully toilet-trained my daughter by age 16 months. It is now three months later and we are still using diapers at naps and nighttime. At her nap, which lasts several hours, she fully soaks her diaper. At night, she is taking off her diaper prior to falling asleep, wetting the bed after she goes to sleep, and then crying for us when she wakes up in a pool of pee.
"I SCREAM, You SCREAM, we all SCREAM for ICE CREAM!" In 1984, President Ronald Reagan declared July National Ice Cream Month, and 30 years later the frosty treat is still one of America's favorite ways to celebrate summertime.
(Note: The following is part of a series of articles looking at the growth of roads and transportation in Georgia and Bulloch County beginning in 1807.)
Does God want his children involved in the activities of our world? And if so, just what should that entail? This is a question that ought to be of concern to every Christian.
At times, I enjoy the computer because there is so much information accessible at the touch of a button. I remember asking a student to type in the word cuneiform to see what she could find. She said, "It seems to be some kind of language, Mesopotamian or something, printed on a clay tablet. So what's the big deal?"
