Holli Deal Bragg - Here’s why I was arrested

As police reporter for the Statesboro Herald, I type thousands of arrests that go in the paper every year. I've joked about putting my own name in the paper, though I was confident I would never commit a crime that would require doing so. I still do not feel as if I committed a crime, but I was arrested Monday morning.

What's on my Mind with Holli Deal Bragg - Trail ride down Memory Lane

The sweet scent of honeysuckle tickled my nose as I ducked under a tree limb. I relaxed to the sway of ol' BJ's easy stride as we meandered around pine trees, over fallen logs, across fire breaks and over small hills.

John Bressler - The death of Osama bin Laden

The death of one terrorist tells us a lot about ourselves. There will be those who say, "Who cares?" Others may respond, "Retaliation is not an answer." Possibly some may ask, "Won't this result in more terrorist attacks?"

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Help out in planning downtown's future

One of the "complaints" that I hear consistently is from people who live in the county and work and/or have property - commercial or residential - in the city of Statesboro. They feel they have no say in the governmental affairs of the city, i.e., they cannot vote in city elections even though they have a legitimate and vested interest in the continued success of the city.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Make May a month of fun times

While children and daffodils proudly showed off their Easter outfits, April quietly slipped away and May emerged. The end of another school year is upon us, with tests, parties, graduation, and shredded quizzes fast approaching. I hope you made this the best school year ever, with lots of family time squeezed in between studying and homework. Finish the month with fun family memories by celebrating the holidays below or creating your own unique festivities.

John Bressler - Accept His sacrifice and live life accordingly

I was talking to a friend, who happens to be a physicist, during choir practice and got on the subject of the infinity of space when the choir director looked at us and said, "If you don't shut up and sing, I will pray that God punishes you … a lot." We lost our train of thought. I do remember that we agreed driving through Texas is a lot like infinity. I also remembered that I read a blurb on the computer that said, "Google knows everything!" This morning, I went to Google and asked, "What must I know?"

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Parents of the past had it more right

I'm reasonably certain that my parents never used the term "John's needs." Since having this thought, I've asked a handful of folks my age, "Do you think your parents ever talked about your needs and how to best meet them?"

Kathy Bradley - Seeing two in the sky, on land

The sky last night was a bolt of dark wash denim, the selvage hugging one horizon, the fold the other. And the stars, oh, so many stars, did not twinkle so much as glow, did not shine so much as radiate, radiate like ice crystals with a kind of negative energy. I lay on my back on the deck, the boards like extra ribs pushing into me at regular intervals, and stared up into the darkness interrupted only occasionally by airplanes so small they could have been fireflies.

Parenting advice with John Rosemond - Take control of sibling squabbles

Q: Our 7-year-old son and 32-month-old daughter squabble with each other constantly, mostly over taking and playing with each other's toys. The problem is our daughter, really. She will hit, scream, and throw things when she is angry. She wants to be in her brother's room, to do whatever he is doing, and he will not close his door. He's not rough with her, but we know he deliberately aggravates her. We have tried time outs and separating them. With this sort of age gap, is there some way of stopping the almost constant uproar?

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Human history's 2 biggest events

What do you think about when you consider Jesus' resurrection? Perhaps, like me, you most often reflect on his victory over death, and the fact that his victory makes it possible for us to win over death as well.

In the spirit with John Bressler - Don't just read - learn something, too

I happened to be listening to NPR the other day and a reporter quoted a teacher who said, "Up to the third grade, we teach children to learn to read. After that, we teach children to read to learn." I like that because it means that just because a child can read most anything phonetically and with pretty good comprehension, he or she can't ignore books from that day on. Barbara Freedman-De Vito writes: books help develop vital language skills, books open up new worlds, books enhance social sYls, books can improve hand-eye coordination, books really matter, books can ...

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk: South & Vine Public House burned but not broken

During the summer of 2013, just six months after an intriguing new restaurant popped up in downtown Statesboro on the corner of South Main and West Vine streets, I ventured inside to discover a restaurant that would become the backbone of our community and so much more.
