Adabelle Road was a little like Beacon Street this morning, only without Fenway Park and Boston Common. It was a pair of Canada geese, not Mallard ducks, trying to cross the road with their offspring and, of course, there was no Michael the policeman stopping traffic. Still, the scene felt familiar as I was forced to a complete stop as an intergender discussion of which way to go took place on the white line running down the middle of the pavement.
Our commitment to one another is prompted by and based upon our allegiance to the Lord. Christians understand that God has perfect understanding of our needs as human beings made in his image: "All this also comes from the Lord Almighty, wonderful in counsel and magnificent in wisdom" (Isaiah 28:29).
Q: I went into my 17-year-old's bedroom to wake him this morning. After some urging, he eventually got up and then told me he hated me. What is the appropriate consequence for this sort of disrespect?
Editor's Note: The following story has been revised to reflect the following correction, which appears in the June 4 print edition: Because of incorrect information supplied, a transaction that resulted in Sam and Gail Haapala, from Beaufort, S.C., owning Bruster's Real Ice Cream on Lovett Road was inaccurately described in a business column in the May 21 edition. Hull Storey Gibson Companies LLC, the owner of the Statesboro Mall, purchased the property out of foreclosure from Sea Island Bank. The Haapalas lease the facility from Hull Storey Gibson.
Two Georgia Southern University students had their 15 minutes of fame when an episode of "Judge Mathis" aired Monday.
Julia Child taught a lot of cooks a lot of things, but nothing she said ever resonated with me more than these words: "Find something you're passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it." That realization has gotten me through some otherwise mundane times in my life, and those are the very words that inspired me to create my food blog, "Some Kinda Good." I never imagined doing what you love could open so many doors, but as it turns out, when you do what you love, success comes. This food column is my success.
When I was a child, back in the Parenting Stone Age (aka the Parentocentric Era), your parents were the most important people in the family. They paid the bills, bought your clothes, prepared the food you ate, took care of you when you were sick, drove you to where you needed to be, tucked you in and kissed you good night. They were essential.
A good question to ask about the home is, "Why did God create it?" When we look for the answer in the Bible - which tells us what God's will for mankind is - it becomes obvious that the home is the foundation of society in every culture. It doesn't take much effort to confirm this contention by observation. Other factors are involved, but "as goes the home, so goes humanity" is pretty much a universal truism.

It is always fun to interview people who are able to make a lifelong passion their livelihood. I had that opportunity recently when I visited with Ryan Marsh, owner of Bellies, Babies, and Ballerinas on West Main Street.
Q: Is it OK to start teaching our 1-year-old how to play independently? He screams and cries when I put him in any type of enclosure if he can't get "free," even when I arrange the furniture in a way that he has a very ample play area. Is there a method to teach him how to play by himself for at least a little bit? It seems I am following him around the house all day so he can't get into trouble or hurt himself or damage furniture, etc. We have our house baby-proofed, but he is ...
For the fourth time since a massive fish kill was discovered in the Ogeechee River in May 2011, the Georgia Environmental Protection Division held a public hearing to listen to concerns about the river and a proposed discharge permit for King America Finishing.
I was walking in the woods, a hundred yards or so past the broken down, rusted-out barbed wire fence that may or may not mark the property line between our land and our neighbors'. I had two friends with me, people accustomed to the outdoors, one of whom I call The Scientist. Their brand of nature, however, is generally more marine.
Once he entered the United States Navy during World War II, Ensign Flournoy Glenn Hodges made quite a name for himself. The son of Mr. and Mrs. Wade C. Hodges, Glenn, as he was known, was a graduate of Statesboro High School.
When Frank Parker and his partner built the Woodland Square shopping center on Highway 301 South in 2006, I had more than one person express concern that it was "too far" out of town.
