Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - All I want for Christmas is ... a brick?

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.

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.
