Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Make time to enjoy the last month of the year

The last month of the year 2012 is upon us, with only a handful of shopping days left until Christmas. Use your time wisely to make quality memories this month, not crazy ones. Don't let the frenzy of decorating, baking and shopping steal the joy of the season. Make time for friends and family, hot chocolate in front of the fire, carols and mistletoe kisses, and donations of goodwill to someone in need. Celebrate the season with your own special traditions, and sprinkle in a few of the wacky, but true, holidays below.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Excelsior EMC forms out of the New Deal

The "Rural Electrification of America" became the watchword of the mid-1930s as part of the New Deal. In 1935, President Franklin Roosevelt signed an executive order creating the Rural Electric Administration at his summer White House in Warm Springs, Ga.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Learning to play an instrument can be a great outlet for child

Q: What is an appropriate age for a child to begin learning a musical instrument? I've looked into lessons in my area, and teachers accept children as young as 2 or 3 for violin and piano lessons.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Can we know the Bible came from God?

One of the most important things we can think about concerning God is this: Can we know the Bible is the word of God? Some - many? - might ask, "Why is this so important? Can't we just accept by faith that the Bible is from God?" While we do accept it "by faith," that faith must be based on evidence, or it isn't really faith; it is nothing more than opinion. That's the view on which atheists and agnostics insist, adding that one opinion is as good as another, so we can't really have any real confidence ...

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - FBS move would create economic boost

I had the tremendous pleasure of going to Athens last weekend to watch the Eagles take on the Bulldogs. As a graduate of both institutions, I literally had the opportunity to cheer on every play. Granted, that was a little strange.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Children perceive persuasion as a weakness

Q: My 12-year-old grandson has become obsessed with things he wants, including a cellphone (the most expensive, mind you), an iPad and expensive designer jeans. He begs, throws tantrums, pouts, refuses to speak to his parents and the like. When told not to say another word, he leaves them notes, draws pictures or comes to us or the other grandparents.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Celebrate Thanksgiving all year long

The story of the 10 lepers is sad from the standpoint of the nine healed men who failed to express gratitude to Jesus (Luke 17:11–19). We're not told why they didn't return; the implication is that it was because of neglect. But from the standpoint of the one that remembered, it is a prime example of the value of expressed thankfulness.

Kathy Bradley - Tales from Uncle Remus

When I was a little girl, our vacations always sent us north toward Rock City and Ruby Falls, Stone Mountain and Grant Park, Cherokee and the Great Smokies. And, in the absence in those days of an interstate highway system, our trek always took us through Eatonton, home of Joel Chandler Harris, creator of Uncle Remus.

Jim Healy: If at first you don't succeed, secede

Shortly after President Obama took office in 2009, his administration created the "We the People" website. Essentially, it offers a lot of information about the executive branch of government, how it works and, of course, the Obama administration's spin on issues.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Georgia's Salzburgers spark silk industry

Every Labor Day, nearly 1,000 people journey to the Salzburger homestead in Effingham County, Ga., for the anniversary of the arrival of the Germans in Georgia nearly 280 years ago. A large number of Bulloch County families are direct descendants of these immigrants, who braved a dangerous voyage across the Atlantic Ocean in horrible conditions in search of religious freedom in the new colony of Georgia.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Trust child's physician with physical well-being

Q: My 8-year-old son was born prematurely and weighed only 3 pounds. He is still too thin in my opinion, although his doctor hasn't been worried about it. I have been trying to get him to gain weight his whole life.

Jim Healy: What did GOP learn?

While I can't imagine what it was like for folks living in Ohio or Virginia and being overwhelmed with political ads wherever you were, I'm not going to miss the ads from Lee Anderson and John Barrow that ran like machine-gun fire on television during the past month.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Ungrateful teen can still be corrected

Question: Our 14-year-old daughter has difficulty controlling her anger. She has extreme outbursts fairly frequently here at home - screaming, cursing and even throwing things when she doesn't get her way. She appears to have no respect for us and very little consideration for her two younger siblings. At school and in other people's homes, however, she's a model citizen. She's a straight-A student about whom all of her teachers have nothing but praise. When I describe her outbursts to friends and family, they are disbelieving. Is it too late to do anything about her anger issue?

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Everyone's days are numbered — whether we like it or not

I suppose most folks who work for a living begin, at some point, to look forward to retirement. Some prefer not to quit for various reasons, but they are exceptions. One thing that causes many to want to stop working is having to go in whether they want to or not. As one fellow reportedly said, "I wouldn't mind the job as much if it just wasn't so every day!"
