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.

Kathy Bradley - Dancing with the scars

The saw-tooth oaks in the back yard, the ones that started out as knee-high, pinky-sized saplings, tower over me now. They move in the breeze like crinolined ball gowns, all hip-swaying, bodice-gripping green chiffon. Their widest branches reach out curving, almost touching, debutantes holding hands before their names are called. They look like Scarlett O'Hara at the barbecue, all insolent and saucy, dangerously aware of their beauty and its seductive power. And, because there are two, the Tarleton twins don't have to fight. There is plenty to go around.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Two US Navy ships named 'Claxton'

Over our nation's two hundred plus years of existence, there have been two United States Navy ships named "Claxton." The first, the DD-140, was Wickes Class Destroyer launched on January 14, 1919, at Mare Island Navy Yard twenty files miles north of San Francisco.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - There are ways to help preteen set own bedtime

Q: My 12-year-old daughter thinks she's old enough to set her own bedtime. We told her that we want her in bed, lights out, by 9:30 on weeknights and 10:00 on non-school nights. This really isn't working, however, as she continues to try to stay up later. In one of your books, you describe a system for letting teenagers earn their curfew. Can we use a similar system for bedtime?

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - 67 Antique Mall owners believers in I-16

Several years ago, I reported on the boom in development on Highway 67 between the Denmark community and I-16. A number of antique shops had opened - anchored by the already thriving 67 Antique Mall - as well as a couple of restaurants and a physician's office.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Share bouquets of spring with your family

Though summer-like heat anguished us prematurely in the month of March, Spring officially has arrived, bringing crisp weather with cool breezes, every shade of green imaginable and a plethora of pastels and petals splattered on the earth like paint on an artist's palette.

On Art with Lynn Lilly - Averitt exhibit brings imagination, realism

We move through our world focused on chewing up the miles to the freeway, not on the roadside views we're traveling. We stroll out to get the mail and see only the weeds that need pulling, not the bird nesting or the magnolia blooming. We live in a place for a year or a lifetime and forget to see the sights, scenes and moments that make the place – and our lives – what they are.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - What makes a kid truly terrific?

If the frequency of my own sightings is any indication, those "My Child Is a Terrific Kid!" bumper stickers are fast becoming ubiquitous. Curious, I did some investigating and discovered that Terrific Kids is a school-based character-building program sponsored by Kiwanis. Terrific is an acronym that stands for Thoughtful, Enthusiastic, Respectful, Responsible, Inclusive, Friendly, Inquisitive and Capable.

John Bressler - Look for light in the darkness

Julie and I had been officially dating for about six months and most of her family seemed to like me. What's not to like? We were going to visit her favorite on this particular day. She was Baba Mamie, Julie's grandmother, who lived on the fifth floor of the Simmons Apartment Complex. As we started to walk into the foyer, I heard a, "Yoo Hoo!" and looked up to see Baba Mamie leaning over her railing and tossing some candy down to us. I liked her already.

Kathy Bradley - The risk of melted wings

The sun did not rise today. It sprang. Did not slowly inch into the sky. Catapulted. Went from being a clean, sharp, compass-drawn arc behind the tree line to a barely-round blotch midway up the sky, its lower half covered by a cloud like a towel wrapped around its waist. A towel made of long-staple Egyptian cotton. Extra thick. Talcum powder soft.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Only 1 ship named for Bulloch County

Believe it or not, there has only been one boat, ship, or vessel registered with the name Bulloch County. It started out its career as just a number: L(anding) S(hip) T(ank) landing craft #509, part of the LST 491 class of transport vessels built for the United States Navy at the beginning of World War Two.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - High self-esteem is overrated

Q: I recently heard you speak in San Diego and need some clarification. While I understand that researchers have found that high self-esteem is not what it was cracked up to be, I want my kids to approach the challenges of life with confidence in their abilities. There's got to be a reconciliation point here. What is it?

Words written in the firmament

Every morning, I get to look into the eyes of the most beautiful lady I have ever seen. I smile at her and she says, "Good morning, Doofus!" with a smile that makes my day. All week I get to drive on some back roads - hopefully avoiding the ubiquitous deer - to be at East Georgia State and surrounded by students of all shapes and sizes and some of the nicest colleagues you'd ever want to meet. My office is on the south side and I am within spitball range of three historians, two great English professors, a first class ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Benefits of vaccines outweigh the risks

First, a full disclosure: I have been vaccinated against measles, mumps, diphtheria, rubella, whooping cough, smallpox and shingles and have had none of these maladies. At one time or another, my wife received all of these same vaccinations. Our kids were both immunized, and they have chosen to have their kids immunized. None of us has ever had an adverse reaction to a vaccination.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: 'Get the jump' on sin and prepare with God's word

Clothing stores normally display new fashions well ahead of the season. Stores here in Statesboro have had spring fashions out for several weeks, even though spring is several weeks away. An iron-clad rule for merchandisers is to "get the jump" on the buying seasons. In a spiritual context, Christians should be interested in "getting the jump" on sin, being prepared for temptation when it comes. This can be done if we'll apply some basic principles.

Editorial - Making Statesboro safer: A good start

A significant drop in the crime rate reported last week by the Statesboro Police Department is good news, indeed, and a positive sign that recent efforts at increasing cooperation between local law enforcement agencies is working. Based on data compiled by the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting Program, Part 1 crimes - the most serious and violent crimes - dropped 10.5 percent in 2014 compared to 2013.

No time for distractions
