Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Downtown thrives in Wedding Walk 2012

Every morning, I turn on the news and listen to reporters in New York telling me what the economic indicator of the day is going to be - a jobs or earnings report, or perhaps a manufacturing indicator.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Enjoy extra day in February

Can you believe an entire month of the year 2012 has already been ripped off the calendar? Honestly, where does the time go? Are we so busy with "life" that we miss the good stuff? Did you remember to tuck the kids in each night with a hug and a kiss? Did you read bedtime stories and build a fort in the den? Did you try a new recipe and go on a date with your spouse?

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Shearhouses build their own railroad

In 1912, a third tram railroad was started in Bulloch County, this time by the Shearhouse family. John N. Shearhouse (and partner, George Brinson, the owner of the Midland and several other smaller lines) decided to open a line from Clyo to Claxton.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - As in everything, accountability is a key component

The media recently reported "new" research findings to the effect that rewards often backfire and self-esteem is not the wonderful, uplifting personal attribute once thought. As a result, schools are rethinking their teaching and classroom management philosophies.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Legislators looking to reduce regulations

Several months ago, I spoke with the speaker of the Georgia House of Representatives David Ralston about the unemployment situation in our state. He said one of the most effective ways to battle unemployment is to help small businesses as they generate the vast majority of job growth.

Kathy Bradley - Ode on a saw-tooth oak

The nest is delicately balanced between two branches of one of the saw-tooth oaks Adam planted at the edge of the yard eight years ago. At just-about eye-level, I have to ease up onto my tiptoes a bit for the right angle to see into its depths, to make sure that it is empty. It could not be more symmetrical if its avian architect had used computer-aided drafting - a cup-shaped scoop of twigs and thread-sized roots perfectly built for what? two eggs? three?

On Art with Lynn Lilly - Exhibit brings back stylish '20s to Averitt

For the next few weeks, steal a glance up and down Main Street to see if F. Scott Fitzgerald is strolling by. If you do, he's likely headed for the Averitt Center and you may want to follow him inside.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - New RR creates Sav-Boro express

James and William Woods built a 13-mile tram railroad from their sawmill in Woodburn (near present day Hubert) to the town of Cuyler in 1894. Quite logically, they decided to call their railroad the Cuyler and Woodburn Railroad (C&W). Under the direction of trustees W.H. Cone, J.A. Bliss and A.A. Adams, the C&W had soon connected Bulloch County to northern Bryan County.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Kindergartner wants nothing to do with PE

Q: According to his PE teacher (Kindergarten), our son has recently started refusing to participate in class. He sits off to the side and pouts. She said he won't tell her what the problem is. This is a very active child who comes home and plays outside with other kids most of the afternoon. We tried to talk to him about it but like the teacher, got nowhere. What should we do?

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Statesboro makes its railroad connection

In the 1880s, railroad magnate John Williams consolidated a number of small coastal North Carolina railroad lines into the Seaboard Railroad system. The Seaboard rapidly expanded southward.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - A tough fight for our lives

If you're a Christian, you're in a fight for your life. Twice in his first letter to Timothy, Paul encouraged him in his life in Christ by using the language of war: "...fight the good fight holding on to faith and a good conscience.' (1:18); "Fight the good fight of the faith." (6:12) Then, in the second letter to his child in the faith, Paul spoke almost tearfully of coming to the end of his journey: "I have fought the good fight...." (4:7)

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - 'Bad' thoughts fairly common for teens

Q: Our oldest son, age eight, has recently started saying that he has no friends, no one likes him, he's no good at anything, and so on. None of this is true, mind you. He's a good kid who does well in school. We are at a loss as to where this is coming from. His younger brothers are bothered by hearing it as well, and we worry about the effect on them. This has been going on for a couple of months now. We've tried talking to him, and we've tried ignoring him. Nothing works ...

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Harveys staying; New Fred's set to open

In just three weeks, there have been two "mega" retailers announcing the closing of more than 100 stores each around the country. Last week, I reported on Sears, and this past week Belgian supermarket chain Delhaize Group said it will close 113 Food Lion stores as it struggles with tight consumer spending and increased competition. About 4,900 jobs will be lost.

Where do you fit in the scheme?

It's last Monday morning and according to the weather report - and somebody got it right this time - it's raining very hard with thunder and lightning, and it's nice to be inside looking out. This afternoon, we have a 100 percent chance of very heavy rain, high winds and a get-ready-to-hunker-down warning, which I will do my best to follow the directions. One of my colleagues has just told me we're not supposed to have this kind of stuff this late in the year. Since he teaches Algebra, what does he know? He knows this: it is ...
