Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Bi-Lo plans expansion with all work at night

What is significant about June 3, 1992? Well, that is the day that the brand new Bi-Lo opened in the Statesboro Mall. Taking into account the fervor that our community has for its grocery stores, I thought that date might have significance for some of you.

John Bressler - God will take care of the rest of the story

One of the biggest mistakes the educational system has made over the last 30 or so years has been the removal of what was once required in every school in just about every state: driver's education. I'm sure that funding had a great deal to do with the choice and many felt that being able to manipulate a vehicle around town and on the local highways was not brain surgery and any idiot could drive well enough to get by, so why put stress on the board of education's already stretched-to-the-limit budget?

Kathy Bradley - Rosemary and time

He was late in arriving. The lunch crowd had dispersed and the restaurant was nearly empty. The blades of the ceiling fans caught the sunlight from the glass panels in the front doors and threw tiny trapezoidal flashes at the corners of my eyes. Tall plastic glasses of tea - his sweetened the right way, mine artificially so - sweated on the table between us.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Meet a modern witness of faith

In this edition of "Thinking of God," I'd like to talk a little more about the violent persecution of Christians in the modern world, in many so-called "civilized" areas. Bible readers are familiar with the stories of early Christians in the first century A. D. who paid for their faith in Jesus as the Son of God, often with their lives. Persecution has never totally ceased since then, down to the present day. Our awareness of its existence will hopefully lead to an appreciation of the importance of preparation for it in our time.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Cotton: Lifeblood of Bulloch County

With cotton fields all around and bolls about to bloom, cotton remains the lifeblood of many Bulloch Countians today, as it has been for more than a 150 years. The word "Cotton" translates to "coton" in French, and even sounds the same in Arabic: "Qutun". The cotton plant is actually a member of the Mallow family, which also includes milkweed and hollyhock.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - First Southern closing is shocking, sobering

When I started covering business news for the Statesboro Herald almost seven years ago, I never thought that I would write about a bank in Statesboro being shut down by regulators. It was surreal when I walked into First Southern's lobby on Saturday to speak with those involved with its closing and transition.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Child is literally running in circles

Q: Our 12-year-old daughter seems driven to run in circles. For years now, every day, often many times a day, she will suddenly start jogging in a big circle around the family room or anywhere else in the house she is when the urge strikes. She stops when one of us tells her to stop, but a bit later she's off again! We've sent her outside to run many times, but that doesn't help either. While this may sound like a minor problem, it is so very strange and it's most certainly driving us nuts. Help!

John Bressler - What do you see when you look up at the heavens?

Allow me to change one word in the first sentence of this biblical quote, "In the beginning, God created the universe and the earth."

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Let boys be boys, squash the bugs!

Q: I feel silly for asking, but what is your position on children killing bugs? I do not know if this is just 4-year-old boy behavior, but my son seems rather fascinated with bug-killing. He is, by the way, very kind with our dog and other pets. I have explained that bugs have families too and need to return to them. Is this a mountain I should die on?

Kathy Bradley - Box scores and being

A couple of weeks ago, the Braves played an extra-innings game. I was out of town and having my usual trouble falling asleep, so I stayed with them - propped up in the bright white sheets of the Holiday Inn - until after midnight, at which point I decided I should at least try to get some rest. At 2 a.m. I gave up and turned the television back on. They were still at it.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Morrison's takes over hospital food service

As a child when I would visit my grandmother in Tampa, she would take us to Morrison's Cafeteria. That was a treat as there were so many choices, and you could pick out a dessert all by yourself. As you know, you haven't lived until you have been suckered into getting some of the brightly colored Jello, instead of a "real" desert. Sorry, I digress.

John Bressler - Doubt can lead to a greater understanding of your faith

I've had this book on my shelf for at least 30 years, and I am always amazed at how timeless it has been. The author is good old Hans Kung, with an umlaut, a once revered Catholic theologian who fell out of grace for making some higher-ups feel uncomfortable.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: The evils of spanking? Well, not so much.

It's time once again for me to clarify my position on spanking. I arrived at this reluctant conclusion because twice in the last week, I've been informed that I believe in it - which is not exactly true.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Enjoy feasts and fellowship this month

Again, recent temperatures belie the season, but it truly is the month of November in south Georgia. Whether warm or crisp, it's the season to be thankful for a bountiful harvest: the love of family and friends and all the memories both have provided throughout the year. Incorporate a spirit of thankfulness in every day with each event, feast or fellowship. Be grateful for the minutiae and the mighty, and enjoy the beauty of November with those you love.

There is a cure for all illness

I have had a certain amount of interest concerning John Forbes Nash Jr. ever since Julie and I saw the very loosely-based movie on his life, "A Beautiful Mind." I also liked the fact that he was born in Bluefield, West Virginia - only a hop, skip and jump from Huntington - and I could claim a certain amount of kinship. The man was a mathematical genius, a schizophrenic and pretty odd. I do not claim any of what I just wrote as kinship. His basic theory was, "any abstract Riemannian manifold can be isometrically realized as a submanifold of Euclidean space."
