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.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Squeeze out the last bits of summer

Sharpened pencils, new bookbags, yellow buses, and promises of impending tests belie the fact that summer is not truly over. According to the calendar, the halfway point of the summer season - August 6 - is fresh in our minds. Keep "summer" alive with your family with a few more trips to the beach, picnics in the park, lots of popsicles, peanuts, and watermelon, and playtime in a backyard sprinkler. Make back-to-school-yet-still-summer memories with your loved ones with the holiday celebrations below or create your own cool, summer festivities.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Persecution is a test of faith

In addition to our work in Bulloch County, the church of Christ in Statesboro helps support several efforts to preach the gospel of Christ around the world. These include the nations of Cameroon and Nigeria in West Africa, and Lithuania in Eastern Europe. Spreading the message of Christ is difficult wherever it is attempted. But, for varying reasons, the work is especially difficult in these areas, in some cases to the point of being dangerous.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Interest in scooters rises with gas prices

To ride via scooter or not, that is the question. As the price of gasoline continues to exceed $3.50 on a consistent basis, an alternative form of transportation - specifically, the scooter - is catching hold in other parts of the state. The question is, will they become popular here?

John Bressler - A heart-warming visit with the grandkids

Julie and I find ourselves sitting in the Jacksonville airport, waiting to leave for California, and watching people. I see a couple kissing goodbye; he's in uniform and she's wearing a pink sun dress. She's crying and he's sad and trying to look concerned and in control. He's not doing a very good job. Over there by concourse C is a man, well dressed and perhaps in his late 50s checking out the folks who have just arrived and walking his way. He straightens his tie, sucks in his stomach and stares at a much ...

What is our purpose in life?

I believe it was back in 1939 when a very popular author, James Thurber, wrote a short novel about an unusual man he named "Walter Mitty." It became so well read that it was produced for Broadway, made into a movie around 1947 - which I remember watching - and remade in 2013. If you're one of those purists, I guess you won't like my position, but I really liked Danny Kaye and Ben Stiller, who played the role of Walter Mitty. I suppose my reason for being so attached to the character is that, like many others (I hope ...

Kathy Bradley: Little black dresses don't prepare you for everything — especially not tragedies

It is a fashion rule that has been around so long, it is, like a politician, known by its initials: LBD. Little black dress. Every woman has to have one. Young or old or in-between, Southerner or Yankee, debutante or farm wife. You can dress it up or dress it down. A well-made LBD in a classic style will last forever, and you will be prepared to accept any invitation.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Childhood: Good citizens begin at home

A major U.S. newspaper recently ran a piece detailing all the ways children benefit from doing chores. Well, not all the ways. They failed to mention the most important benefit: Chores, properly managed, teach citizenship values.

Remembering radio in the 1940s

When I was a little over 5 years of age, I remember lying on the floor in front of our big old Zenith radio listening to whatever just happened to be on that evening. The adults liked the news and stuff like: "Allen's Alley," "George Burns and Gracie Allen," while Shirley Jo and I loved "Little Orphan Annie," "The Lone Ranger," "Superman" and the comedy programs. I'll never forget that one evening when President F.D. Roosevelt announced the bombing of Pearl Harbor, "A day that will live in infamy!" It was only a few weeks later when ...

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Cherish every minute of May

Haven't we been blessed with splendid springtime weather the last several days?

Celebrate the beauty of a Statesboro spring with one of the holidays below or create new, unique family festivities. But, whatever the weather, make memories together.

The myth of the terrible teen years

Q: Our son is going to be 13 next year and we're trying to be proactive about the coming storm. He's been a good kid and relatively easy to raise to this point, but we've heard the horror stories and dread what may be around the corner. Do you have any tips?
