Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Harveys staying; New Fred's set to open

In just three weeks, there have been two "mega" retailers announcing the closing of more than 100 stores each around the country. Last week, I reported on Sears, and this past week Belgian supermarket chain Delhaize Group said it will close 113 Food Lion stores as it struggles with tight consumer spending and increased competition. About 4,900 jobs will be lost.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Daughter has given no reason not to trust her

Q: Our 17-year-old daughter is an honor student who has been accepted to three colleges. She has not been a risk taker, except with boys. Her most recent boyfriend is a wonderful kid and very smart. Apparently, they both resent our rule that a parent must be home when either of them is visiting at the other one's home, but they've gone along with it, however reluctantly. We just found out that they've been texting about sneaking out in cars to be alone. What should we do?

John Bressler - Happy and blessed to call Statesboro home

I was sitting in the waiting room, office, dog house and spa of Jappy Stringer's gas station waiting for the car to get its annual oil change and bulb replacement feeling warm all over. It was 32 degrees F outside but felt pretty good inside as I was close to the heater and the Stringer's dog, Gracie, a 100-pound German Shepherd, was sitting on my lap. Who says no to a dog the size of a Volkswagen?

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - U.S. currency keeps evolving

The popular and informal "National Motto" of the United States, "In God We Trust," was ordered to be added to all currency in 1955, and first appeared on the 1957 $1 Silver Certificates and then the 1963 Federal Reserve Notes. The American dollar was redesigned once again in 1996, when new $100 and then $20 bills were released to foil counterfeiters. Unfortunately, they soon had copies of the new bills flowing freely.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - It's time to give immature son 'painful' lesson

Q: My husband and I have micromanaged, spoiled, and enabled our 21-year-old son all his life. We paid a heavy price during his teen years. At this point, he is arrogant, immature, and irresponsible. For example, he recently went online and posted a vile comment about a former girlfriend. When we confronted him about it, he told us she deserved it. We realize the error of our ways, but our need to protect him from the consequences of his impulsivity and irresponsibility is so strong that we can't seem to break the habit. On the positive side, he holds ...

Kathy Bradley - Not a resolution

It was early. The sky was a solid gun-metal gray. The rain smelled like summer rain, light and a little musty. It fell softly and met the concrete lip of the carport like the skirt of a ball gown lowered over satin shoes. A womb outside a womb, the morning pulled me from the warmth and stillness of the house into the cool and stillness of the day.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Start New Year off in fun way

Tinsel and lights have made their way back to the attic just in time for the dawn of a new year. And this year, 2012, the calendar treats us to an extra day, as February 29th leaps onto the page. Lay aside useless resolutions and instead of making preposterous promises and plans to lose pounds, plan one very important objective for 2012 – make loved ones a priority, orchestrating special times with family and friends. Count stars and pick wildflowers; roast marshmallows and camp on the den floor; bake cookies and read books; dance in puddles and chase butterflies. Celebrate 366 ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - His was the most unusual birth of all

The Bible has a lot to say about the birth of Jesus. All of them are important. But none are more important than the manner of His conception. It could be a misconception on my part, but it seems this is a topic not emphasized as much as it used to be.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Son likely untruthful about smoking habits

Q: We just discovered that our 17-year-old is using nicotine. He tells us he's been using for the past several months, smoking two to four cigarettes a day to cope with academic anxiety and relationships. He tends to be socially reserved and has been struggling with academics of late. He appears contrite and remorseful and has said, "I should never have gotten started with this stuff in the first place."

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Half a year gone already!

With school bells just around the corner, the lazy days of summer are slowly slipping away. Along those lines, over half of the days of year 2015 have slipped away, too. July 1 or 2 - according to how precise you are, and if you add that .5-day when you divide 365 in half - is officially the halfway point of the year. Have you had half of the family fun you hope to have this year? How are the family memories for the year adding up?

Kathy Bradley: In the middle -- with snakes

The first snake skin of the season appeared about six weeks ago, stretched out in a long line across the concrete of the carport in almost exactly the same spot as the one I found last year - the one I measured and looked up in the Audubon Guide to confirm its non-venomous nature. Upon spying this new one, I congratulated myself - since there was no one else there to congratulate me - on what amounted to a non-reaction, i.e., "Oh, look. A snake skin. The skin of a snake. Lying within a few feet of my back door. What a ...
