Guest column: Origin of Black History Month

Of the 12 months on our calendar, February appears to be the month with several observances or events. Isn't it ironic that the shortest month, with 28 days - 29 in a leap year - would have such a plethora of events? Presidents Day is recognized with the celebration of our first president, George Washington, known as the father of our country. Abraham Lincoln, our 16th president, is noted for his issuance of the Emancipation Proclamation, which freed the slaves, and, notably, the Gettysburg Address. In this month, Frederick Douglass, an abolitionist, was elected president of the Freedman's Savings and ...

Are there self-fulfilling prophecies?

When our family finally got settled in at my first church in Florida, I received a call to visit a young man recently incarcerated for auto theft. Back then, I could sit in a crowded room with him and a lot of other visitors and prisoners trying to communicate by almost shouting over the crowd noise. I asked him, "What happened?"

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Even good kids do bad things sometimes

Q: Our 13-year-old son has had an iPod for the last three years. We've always made use of the parental restrictions to make sure that he could only access "clean" music, movies and websites.

Kathy Bradley - Fields of gold

Leaving Darien, up and over the bridge that minds the shrimp boats, I ease my foot off the accelerator and let gravity pull me down toward sea level. The marsh spreads out on either side, at once embracing the river and wooing the ocean. What had been - not many weeks earlier - a rolling lawn, an endless swath of greenest green, has gone gold. Wispy grain heads waving in the winter wind, it is now a field unto harvest.

Editorial: Gary Lewis owes the community an apology

Prior to his re-election to the District 2 seat on the Statesboro City Council in 2011, we wrote in this space that Gary Lewis continuing as a council member would be a blight on District 2 and the city of Statesboro.

God will take care of the rest

I usually don't get an inspiration from the comics page, but I just happened to glance at Arlo and Janis and looked to see a word being said between characters, "Existential!" The funny pages have gone up a notch or two since I was a kid. In fact, I really had no use for such a word -- even to show off -- until I found myself in seminary and a study group assigned to discuss the meaning of life. My first thought was to climb to the top of some mountain and find an old grizzled guy sitting in front ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - There is no single cause, or cure, for nail-biting

Q: What can be done to stop a 19-year-old from biting his fingernails? This has been an ongoing habit from early childhood. He's obviously damaging his fingers and maybe even his teeth. Verbal correction and even punishment has not stopped him. Maybe it is not that big of a deal. Please advise.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - The heavens tell us about God

Many important declarations have been made in human history - declarations that have dealt with important themes. One of the most familiar for Americans is the Declaration of Independence, which put into words and onto paper the intention of the American colonists to be free from the rule of England.

The value of a complete education

It's the beginning of a new semester and new students are asking the same old questions, "Why must I take Math, English, History and Government when I want to be a nurse, lawyer, accountant or own and manage my store? Why is there a grade system? Wouldn't it be just as meaningful to give a pass/fail? Let's get serious. I have to sit in your class and listen to your lecture. That's enough pain as it is so just pass me."

Kathy Bradley - You say you want a revolution

Once a year I find myself thrown into the crucible of one of the great debates of Protestantism. Getting the Christmas tree down out of the attic is easy, but getting it back up is something like one of the labors of Hercules. The steep stairs, the narrow opening, the weight and irregular shape of the tree itself and the law of gravity create the laboratory in which I test the doctrine of eternal security. When, at long last, both the tree and I are lying sprawled in our particular states of disarray and exhaustion on the attic floor and ...

Where is your treasure?

It must have been around 40 years ago when this incident happened. Julie told me that I could write about what had happened because her mom would have had a good laugh abut it.
