Kathy Bradley - No words and singing frogs

The habit developed slowly, as all habits do, and morphed over the years into something more like a ritual: On the night of the full moon, just before bed, I walk out on the deck to tilt my head, stretch my neck and gaze. Once every 28 days or so, I reach out with my eyes for a touchstone, a reminder that some things remain true.

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?

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.

Words written in the firmament

Every morning, I get to look into the eyes of the most beautiful lady I have ever seen. I smile at her and she says, "Good morning, Doofus!" with a smile that makes my day. All week I get to drive on some back roads - hopefully avoiding the ubiquitous deer - to be at East Georgia State and surrounded by students of all shapes and sizes and some of the nicest colleagues you'd ever want to meet. My office is on the south side and I am within spitball range of three historians, two great English professors, a first class ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Benefits of vaccines outweigh the risks

First, a full disclosure: I have been vaccinated against measles, mumps, diphtheria, rubella, whooping cough, smallpox and shingles and have had none of these maladies. At one time or another, my wife received all of these same vaccinations. Our kids were both immunized, and they have chosen to have their kids immunized. None of us has ever had an adverse reaction to a vaccination.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: 'Get the jump' on sin and prepare with God's word

Clothing stores normally display new fashions well ahead of the season. Stores here in Statesboro have had spring fashions out for several weeks, even though spring is several weeks away. An iron-clad rule for merchandisers is to "get the jump" on the buying seasons. In a spiritual context, Christians should be interested in "getting the jump" on sin, being prepared for temptation when it comes. This can be done if we'll apply some basic principles.

Editorial - Making Statesboro safer: A good start

A significant drop in the crime rate reported last week by the Statesboro Police Department is good news, indeed, and a positive sign that recent efforts at increasing cooperation between local law enforcement agencies is working. Based on data compiled by the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting Program, Part 1 crimes - the most serious and violent crimes - dropped 10.5 percent in 2014 compared to 2013.

No time for distractions
