Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Central of Ga. opens local line

The Macon Construction Company got charters in 1888 to build three separate railroads, one of which was to be the Macon and Atlantic Railway (M&A). The M&A, which was to run from Macon to Savannah, actually laid down twelve miles of rails heading eastward from the town of Bruton in Laurens County before the money ran out and it went into receivership in 1894.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Stay the course with listening issues

Q: My 5-year-old daughter is in "rehab" for some listening issues at school. When she comes home with a note from her teacher indicating one or more of these incidents at school, she is confined to her room for the rest of the day. What should I do if she is constantly calling me, wanting to ask me something, wanting me to get something for her, and so on? She isn't coming out of the room, but she is constantly trying to engage me. It's driving me nuts.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Blessed are the meek

The common conception of meekness makes it one of the least sought after characteristics encouraged by Jesus in these "beatitudes" in Matthew 5. Many regard meekness as weakness in a world were strength and courage are so revered. Spineless people are often viewed as meek by those who fail to understand the true meaning of the term used by Jesus and extolled throughout God's word. Consider that Paul includes it in his list of the "fruit of the Spirit" (Galatians 5:23). He also says it is required for those who want to live in a way worthy of ...

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Downtown thrives in Wedding Walk 2012

Every morning, I turn on the news and listen to reporters in New York telling me what the economic indicator of the day is going to be - a jobs or earnings report, or perhaps a manufacturing indicator.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Enjoy extra day in February

Can you believe an entire month of the year 2012 has already been ripped off the calendar? Honestly, where does the time go? Are we so busy with "life" that we miss the good stuff? Did you remember to tuck the kids in each night with a hug and a kiss? Did you read bedtime stories and build a fort in the den? Did you try a new recipe and go on a date with your spouse?

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Shearhouses build their own railroad

In 1912, a third tram railroad was started in Bulloch County, this time by the Shearhouse family. John N. Shearhouse (and partner, George Brinson, the owner of the Midland and several other smaller lines) decided to open a line from Clyo to Claxton.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - As in everything, accountability is a key component

The media recently reported "new" research findings to the effect that rewards often backfire and self-esteem is not the wonderful, uplifting personal attribute once thought. As a result, schools are rethinking their teaching and classroom management philosophies.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Legislators looking to reduce regulations

Several months ago, I spoke with the speaker of the Georgia House of Representatives David Ralston about the unemployment situation in our state. He said one of the most effective ways to battle unemployment is to help small businesses as they generate the vast majority of job growth.

Kathy Bradley - Ode on a saw-tooth oak

The nest is delicately balanced between two branches of one of the saw-tooth oaks Adam planted at the edge of the yard eight years ago. At just-about eye-level, I have to ease up onto my tiptoes a bit for the right angle to see into its depths, to make sure that it is empty. It could not be more symmetrical if its avian architect had used computer-aided drafting - a cup-shaped scoop of twigs and thread-sized roots perfectly built for what? two eggs? three?

On Art with Lynn Lilly - Exhibit brings back stylish '20s to Averitt

For the next few weeks, steal a glance up and down Main Street to see if F. Scott Fitzgerald is strolling by. If you do, he's likely headed for the Averitt Center and you may want to follow him inside.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - New RR creates Sav-Boro express

James and William Woods built a 13-mile tram railroad from their sawmill in Woodburn (near present day Hubert) to the town of Cuyler in 1894. Quite logically, they decided to call their railroad the Cuyler and Woodburn Railroad (C&W). Under the direction of trustees W.H. Cone, J.A. Bliss and A.A. Adams, the C&W had soon connected Bulloch County to northern Bryan County.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Kindergartner wants nothing to do with PE

Q: According to his PE teacher (Kindergarten), our son has recently started refusing to participate in class. He sits off to the side and pouts. She said he won't tell her what the problem is. This is a very active child who comes home and plays outside with other kids most of the afternoon. We tried to talk to him about it but like the teacher, got nowhere. What should we do?

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Statesboro makes its railroad connection

In the 1880s, railroad magnate John Williams consolidated a number of small coastal North Carolina railroad lines into the Seaboard Railroad system. The Seaboard rapidly expanded southward.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - A tough fight for our lives

If you're a Christian, you're in a fight for your life. Twice in his first letter to Timothy, Paul encouraged him in his life in Christ by using the language of war: "...fight the good fight holding on to faith and a good conscience.' (1:18); "Fight the good fight of the faith." (6:12) Then, in the second letter to his child in the faith, Paul spoke almost tearfully of coming to the end of his journey: "I have fought the good fight...." (4:7)

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.
