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 ...

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - GSU's Chick-fil-A is rated tops in nation

I never cease to be amazed at the success achieved by Georgia Southern alumni in conjunction with the continued success of the university itself. A wonderful example of this is the pairing of this year's spring undergraduate commencement ceremony with the Chick-fil-A restaurant in the Russell Student Union building on campus.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Life and faith not always pain free

We can't really blame someone for trying, if possible, to avoid pain, can we? Most understand that sometimes pain is unavoidable; in some cases, it is both necessary and desirable. Consider that the nerves in our bodies, in part, are designed by the Creator to warn us of hazards such as extreme temperatures and sharp objects. Without the initial discomfort or non-lethal pain, we would likely meet an early and rather unpleasant demise.

What's on My Mind with Holli Deal Bragg - A lot more than just boots and a hat

In speaking with a rodeo contractor recently as I interviewed him about an upcoming rodeo in Statesboro, somehow we landed on the topic of rodeo clowns.

Brain Food with Ken Keller - Plug any leaks in your sales process

On a recent Saturday, I went online to find a local supplier of a business product. Finding a website of a company that I thought could provide me with a quality product, I filled out a form requesting information, and clicked "submit."

Kathy Bradley - Scenes our senses capture

The wildfire had been burning for over a week. I expected to see evidence of it as I passed the green metal road sign that marked the Long County line and drove on down the highway lined with pine trees and wire grass, but I didn't.

The biggest story out of the past weekend in Georgia Southern baseball would probably have to be Andy Moye.

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."
