Kathy Bradley - Bye, bye, birdie

A couple of weeks ago I stopped for the mail and, before I could get my hand into the box, heard the distinct sounds of baby birds. I quickly drew my hand back, suspecting that I might be in the cross-hairs of the mama somewhere close by. A few seconds went by without the appearance of an angry female of the avian variety, and I reached back in, this time seeing two baby birds sprawled across the stack of sale papers and catalogs.

Q: Our ninth-grade son always manages to get A's and B's on his report card, but just before the report card comes out, his grades take a complete dive. Should we punish him for this or just accept this imperfection?

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Market District development chugs along

I can't help it. About every six months, I have to check into the Market District. I still think that was one of the shrewdest moves I have seen.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - 'Blessed are the Peacemakers'

Who is not interested in peace in life? Who doesn't want calmness, serenity, quiet, stillness and tranquility to characterize each day? Everyone seems to want peace, but few find it easy to attain. Fewer still seem to have the ability to help others find this calmness and serenity in their lives.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Man seeks cure for child's tantrums

Q: My 4-year-old stepson still has the occasional tantrum in response to being told that he can't have or do something. His mother, who has primary custody (he's with us two days a week, generally), is very permissive, so he comes by this "honestly." When he throws a tantrum, we put him in his "tantrum place," which is a chair in the dining room. That causes his tantrum to get worse, actually, and it sometimes takes him thirty minutes or more to calm himself down to where he can get out of the chair. Is there anything we ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Dad and Mom need to get on the same page

A fellow in West Virginia asks, "My wife and I need to agree concerning our children. She sees things one way, and I see things a completely - and I mean COMPLETELY - different way. How can we get on the same page?"

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Kids with married parents often are better off

About forty years ago, as divorce was becoming commonplace, America began waking up to the importance of fatherhood. Up until then, the literature on child rearing was almost exclusively mother-oriented. Fathers didn't count for much. After all, Freud had pretty much ignored them, hadn't he?

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - The 'Ogeechee' vessels: Steamer to tanker

Over the past two centuries, several boats have been named "Ogeechee." The first such vessel, built in 1863 to be a wooden steamer, was converted into a steam-powered "screw-ram."

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Use your imagination with GSU golf course

As I walked the grounds of Augusta National last Saturday, I was in perpetual awe just like everybody else. If this past weekend is any indication, then the sport of golf as a whole is very, very healthy which brings me to my topic - Georgia Southern's University Park recreational development.

Our View

Michael and Kathy Lee Gatto's son was killed in a violent and tragic incident at Rude Rudy's bar in Statesboro last August. Now they hope a law they are proposing would create more responsible ownership in all businesses that serve alcohol in Georgia.

A life of commitment

Chip had an excellent sermon this past Sunday and gave me a jump-start on 2015. An excellent sermon is when I don't drift off somewhere during the delivery, don't try to re-write it like I think it should be and put the good stuff in the back of my mind so I can rethink it later on. The title was a humdinger, "What did God do with the gold?" The content was about commitment. I also agree that I really need to know what He did with the money - even though He can do whatever He chooses - because ...

Living with Children with John Rosemond - Lavish parties, gifts and trips are 'just plain nuts'

A reader writes that her friends "recently spent around $300 on their daughter's birthday party - her first. They bought lots of stuff to entertain their young guests and extended family. The child, a baby, obviously had no clue what was going on. I should mention that the parents are struggling to make ends meet." She asks for my take on this.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Thank God for a fresh start

One of the more popular shows currently on the small screen is "American Pickers," starring business partners Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz. They travel the country in their large van, searching through barns, back yards - literally anywhere they can find old pieces of what most would call junk but that they think they can sell in their two Antique Archaeology stores. I could be wrong, but it seems a safe bet that neither Mike nor Frank got very excited as kids about Christmas or birthday parties, as both normally include gifts that are new rather than old.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Make the most of 2015

Fireworks and sparkling grape juice, off-key "Auld Lang Syne" tunes, a large falling ball, horns and hugs and kisses ushered in a new year. Do you have dreams and hopes for 2015? Whatever your plans for the new year, make family and loved ones a priority with lots of special time and celebrations to treasure for much longer than 365 days.

Guest column: Learning from rape controversy

Amid allegations, speculations, and opinions whirling around regarding both the journalistic reporting of the alleged University of Virginia rape and the accuracy of the alleged rape itself, it's important to note how this national news story can shape our knowledge about sexual violence.

Guest column: Intelligent faith vs. atheism

As the pastor who initiated the presentation of the manger scene I have special interest in the response from the community and would like to add a few insights to the conversation.

A message to atheists

If the atheists in Bulloch County know that there is no god, then why do they care when and where I pray? And why are they rankled by a nativity scene in downtown Statesboro? If I choose to enslave my mind, as indicated on their banner on the courthouse lawn, then why does that bother them so much?

Kathy Bradley: Random twinkling

From the road, the wreath on the door and the swags over the windows look just right. From the road, they are even and balanced, the wire-edged ribbons are full and round and the ends flutter just the least little bit in the winter breeze. From the road, the blue on the door and the blue in the ribbons match perfectly and from the road the tiny white lights on the tree fill up the windows at the corner of the house.
