Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Statesboro unemployment at alarming rate

Each month, the Georgia Department of Labor issues unemployment statistics. I generally look at Bulloch County's numbers as compared to others, but for the first time, I noticed that Statesboro is listed in the "City Labor Force Estimates" along with 30 other cities from across the state.

Parenting advice with John Rosemond - Chores give children a sense of competence, contribution

Q: Our 13-year-old daughter has been mature for her age from early on. She takes advanced classes and makes straight A's. She's also very talented musically. We think, however, that she has become a media addict. She spends entirely too much time in her room on her computer, mostly using social media. When she's not on the computer, she's using her phone to text her friends. We've asked her to limit her use, but our words are falling on deaf ears. What approach would you recommend short of cutting off the Internet and taking away ...

Kathy Bradley - The place in the middle

On one side is a field of cotton. The stems are blooming with pink and white flowers, soft and sweet like appliques on a gingham sundress. On the other side is a field of corn. The stalks are stiff, the fronds brittle, the ears hard as a brick bat. What was pulsing, quivering green is now lethargic tan, the color of a cup of coffee gone cold. In between, in the middle, is the road.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Don't start your child's 'anti-bullying education' too early

Q: My oldest child starts kindergarten soon. I know there will be the class and/or bus bully who will cause her some distress, whether directly or indirectly. I want to know how to handle it before it happens so I'm prepared. I feel she will have to learn to handle situations like this as time goes on, but at this age she will need my guidance and intervention. What should I say to her now, to prepare her, and how I should handle incidents when and if they occur?

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Restaurants coming back to downtown

Several years ago, we had three restaurants open in downtown Statesboro in a relatively short span of time - 119 Chops, Hugo's and Statesboro Brews. It was so much fun to go downtown, pick a restaurant, and just have a good time. They really did "feed" off of one another.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - What’s the practical value of faith in God?

Faith is the channel through which we receive the blessings of God designed for his children. "By grace ... through faith" is the way Paul said it in his letter to the Ephesians (2:8). While it is true that "... he makes his sun rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the just and the unjust" (Matthew 5:45), the Lord blesses those who love him in spiritual ways reserved for them alone.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Parents must find balance when dealing with misbehavior

In the late 1960s, as psychologist B. F. Skinner's behavior modification theory made the jump from academia into popular culture, the focus in child rearing shifted from molding character to "shaping" behavior. Books such as Gerald Patterson's Living with Children promised perfectly well-behaved children through the proper manipulation of rewards and punishments such as time-out and systematic removal of privilege.

Kathy Bradley - 10,000 acres and one new word

In opening the back door, I flush a flock of birds at the edge of the branch, their wings fluttering fast and thick like shuffled cards. They rise and disappear too quickly for me to make out any markings and they make no sound from which I, were I a person who knew birdcalls, could identify them. The strip of field grass, broom sedge, and dandelions that separates the branch from the backyard is relatively narrow and, on this filmy, overcast morning, their small feathered bodies are little more than momentary smudges across my contact lenses.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - 3-year-old's new favorite word is 'stupid'

Q: The first time my 3-year-old called his 4-year-old brother "stupid" I was caught off guard and probably made too big a deal over it. I told him that he is not allowed to call a person stupid because it is hurtful. He promptly began calling the dog, his cup, and everything else under the sun "stupid." He loves to call people "stoopy" or "foopid" or "poopid" (especially that one, since it combines two words he knows annoy me!) I've created a monster, haven't I? I have started ignoring the behavior, but what should I do when he ...
