James Healy: Gun restrictions and reason

Three weeks ago today a madman shot to death 26 people inside Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., before killing himself. Twenty of the victims were 6- and 7-year-old children. Because of the age of the victims, it is, to me, the most horrific mass shooting of the 62 that have occurred in the United States since 1982.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Numbers show Statesboro is growing fast

This past week, the Wall Street Journal printed an article which contained a list of the fastest growing "micropolitan" communities in the country.

Kathy Bradley - A change in the landscape

It is eight o'clock on the morning after Christmas. One shelf of the refrigerator holds nothing but blue-lidded plastic tubs crammed with leftovers. The trash can by the back door is stuffed with paper and ribbon, cardboard and plastic, tin cans and Styrofoam. The closet where I keep the wrapping paper is gorged with empty boxes that I will eventually make the time to break down and store until the next broad round of gift-giving.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - A realistic, fair solution must be forged

I am the business editor of the Statesboro Herald, and I am a school psychologist with the Bulloch County Board of Education. The mass murder of school children and school personnel in Newtown, Connecticut this past Friday not only made me physically ill, it reminded me of the almost impossible charge that those working for schools today face.

Kathy Bradley - This year's Christmas play

It is the season of wonder, after all. And so, I have been wondering: wondering how long it takes to decorate that huge tree at Rockefeller Center; wondering how a person is supposed to learn all four verses of any particular Christmas carol now that school music programs are "holiday" performances; wondering how our little planet looks from the satellite that takes the photos for Google Earth when all the houses in all the cities and towns across America have their Christmas lights turned on.
