Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Mail delivery makes its way to the Boro

The first real air mail service in the United States was carried out, believe it or not, by a balloon. On Jan. 9, 1793, our nation's first president, George Washington, sent a private letter from his office in Philadelphia to be carried to a personal friend in Deptford, N.J.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Children should develop courage, not self-esteem

Whenever I talk on the subject of self-esteem - how the research strongly suggests that people with high regard for themselves have correspondingly low regard for others and that high self-esteem is highly associated with antisocial behavior like bullying - people become understandably perplexed. After all, the notion that a state of high self-esteem is desirable has become as American as mom and apple pie. The inevitable response: "But John, I want my child to possess self-confidence."

Kathy Bradley - Human hearts and veterinary science

Once a month, Lily takes heartworm medicine. It is a chewy, brown rectangle that, now that I think of it, bears a passing resemblance to the chewy, brown rectangle of calcium that I take every morning.

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.
