Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Daughter has given no reason not to trust her

Q: Our 17-year-old daughter is an honor student who has been accepted to three colleges. She has not been a risk taker, except with boys. Her most recent boyfriend is a wonderful kid and very smart. Apparently, they both resent our rule that a parent must be home when either of them is visiting at the other one's home, but they've gone along with it, however reluctantly. We just found out that they've been texting about sneaking out in cars to be alone. What should we do?

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.

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!

At an online source of parenting advice, a mother recently asked a female marriage and family therapist how to handle her eighth-grade daughter's announcement that she and her ninth-grade boyfriend have decided to "prove their love" by having sex.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: The evils of spanking? Well, not so much.

It's time once again for me to clarify my position on spanking. I arrived at this reluctant conclusion because twice in the last week, I've been informed that I believe in it - which is not exactly true.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Enjoy feasts and fellowship this month

Again, recent temperatures belie the season, but it truly is the month of November in south Georgia. Whether warm or crisp, it's the season to be thankful for a bountiful harvest: the love of family and friends and all the memories both have provided throughout the year.

There is a cure for all illness

I have had a certain amount of interest concerning John Forbes Nash Jr. ever since Julie and I saw the very loosely-based movie on his life, "A Beautiful Mind." I also liked the fact that he was born in Bluefield, West Virginia - only a hop, skip and jump from Huntington - and I could claim a certain amount of kinship. The man was a mathematical genius, a schizophrenic and pretty odd. I do not claim any of what I just wrote as kinship. His basic theory was, "any abstract Riemannian manifold can be isometrically realized as a submanifold of Euclidean space."
