Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Bulloch gets a chance to talk with 'the Babe'

In 1937, Bulloch County's citizens had a chance to match wits with the one and only "Sultan of Swat," Babe Ruth, perhaps the greatest baseball player in the game's long history.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Normal childhood mischief is not the same as bullying

The principal of a middle school recently confided in me that "this bullying thing has gotten completely out of hand." He wasn't referring to bullying itself, although that's certainly out of hand. Instead, he referred to the fact that many parents have become overly sensitized to the possibility that their kids might, at any moment, become bullied and overreact, therefore, to any indication that they have been.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Effectively reaching out requires patience

Christian brotherhood is a wonderful yet complex relationship between individuals saved by grace and in continual need of spiritual help from God to live godly lives in a world devastated by sin. Our common heritage as God's children makes it possible for us to help one another, through the power of the Holy Spirit, to be victorious over Satan and his wicked forces. This is why we are instructed to "carry each other's burdens," "instruct one another," and work at "building up one another."

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Boys don't want to be 'equal' to girls

Q: Our two sons are in the fifth and sixth grades at a private school that just held a father-daughter dance. Now the school has announced that it's putting on a mother-son dance so as not to leave out the boys. I really don't want to attend this. It's just not my thing. One of our boys says he doesn't really want to go. The other one says he'd like to go but doesn't mind if I don't want to. What are your thoughts?

Kathy Bradley - Theology in fewer than 20 items

The sign over my head identified it as the Express Lane. The crowd pressing around me suggested that the designation might be a bit optimistic. I wondered for not the first time what exactly had made me think that I could not live one more day without banana bread yogurt and that, because I'd just left the gym, I was aptly armed to brave the Saturday afternoon mob of shoppers. There were, though, only two people ahead of me, so it was entirely possible that my good humor might actually survive the expedition.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Sleeping changes in 3-year-olds are normal

Q: For the past several weeks, our just-turned 3-year-old has been waking up and coming into our room at all hours of the night with the usual excuses: He's scared, hungry, thirsty, lonely, can't sleep, has to use the bathroom, wants a kiss and so on. He goes to bed at 7:30 p.m. if he takes an afternoon nap and 6:30 p.m. if he doesn't. We are a marriage-centered household, so evenings are for Mom and Dad. Neither of our kids has ever even napped in our bed. When we take him back ...

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Have a fantastic February with family

It's hard to believe we're more than a month into the year 2013. (And it's even more incredulous what beautiful spring-like weather we've had while approaching the half-way point of winter in early February!)

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Name suits Big Show Burger just perfectly

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - God wants everyone to be saved — no exceptions

The Bible is literally full of not only interesting but, in many cases, gripping stories about God and his relationship with people. The Old Testament book of Jonah is such a story. A prophet of God, Jonah lived in the small town of Gath-hepher in Galilee, some five miles north of Nazareth in the eighth century before Christ.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Teach children disobedience isn't an option

Q: What should I do when my 9-year-old daughter loses all of her privileges because of her misbehavior but refuses to go to her room? I tried to physically force her, but she put up too much of a fight. I feel like she's in complete control of our family. I'd have never disobeyed or disrespected my parents. What have I done wrong?

Kathy Bradley - Necessary tension

For the first time in days the landscape is still and silent. The wind chimes outside my bedroom, like icicles, hang hard and motionless. The empty fields, rolled out like bolts of unpressed linen, the edges fringed with caramel-colored broom sedge, are empty. No flocks of blackbirds to be flushed by the sound of a door being opened, a car being started. No dead leaves rattling. Just stillness. Just silence.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Stop playing referee in children's fights

Q: How can we help our 7-year-old twin girls stop fighting? They constantly provoke and antagonize each other. We thought this was just normal sibling conflict, but it seems to be developing into actual resentment. One of them is now saying we love the other one more, and the other one bullies and intimidates her when we're not looking. We seem to be doing nothing but mediating their fights. Help!
