Living healthier gets a big boost

A month ago, a friend of mine told me she went to work out at a local gym one morning in early January, but it was so crowded, she couldn't find a machine to use.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - Local Spotlight on The Daily Grind

The first place to cross your mind when deciding on a lunch locale may not be a coffee shop, but when you visit The Daily Grind in Statesboro, that Red Hot Cinnamon Latte won't be the only thing that tempts you. Serving up more than freshly roasted espresso beans, I'm totally impressed by the plates they produce out of that tiny little kitchen, like Roasted Red Pepper Soup with Smoked Gouda, Hot Ham and Cheese Croissants, Shrimp and Roasted Corn Soup and an array of other nutrient-packed wraps, inventive salads and flavored teas. Open since 2000, the quaint ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Maintaining a godly attitude in tough times

An article in the Savannah Morning News in 2008, reporting on stress in America, noted a survey showing that more than three-fourths of Americans pointed to the state of the economy as a significant source of anxiety. Almost half said they felt increasing concern about their ability to provide for the basic needs of their families. One individual was quoted as saying that if the people of the United States "continue to experience these high levels of stress for prolonged periods of time, they are at risk for developing serious illnesses."

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Making excuses for children enables their bad behavior

Q: My 5-year-old is the youngest of my three children. Her older boy/girl twin siblings clearly outshine her athletically. They're already very skilled at wakeboarding and snow skiing, for example. I think my youngest has decided that because she doesn't measure up to her siblings, she will simply give up. All she wants to do is hang out with me. (I'm not athletic, either, but everyone in the family except this one child is physically active.)

Kathy Bradley - Archery at the seam

The lines on the sailboats in the boatyard keen in the wind, cats meowing mournfully at some imagined wrong. The tide is low, the water nearly flat. In the not too distance, a shrimp boat's silhouette cuts the gray landscape with edges as sharp as a knife blade. It is not exactly too cold for a long walk, but I am ill-prepared; the coat is warm enough, the shoes sturdy enough, but without gloves or a scarf, my hands, my face, my ears will be gnawed raw in minutes.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - What does the Bible have to say about money?

God has a lot to say about money in the Bible - in fact, more than almost any other single topic. He cares about the attitudes we have about it and how we use it. Money is necessary; yet there is so much corruption connected with the desire for money.

Local Spotlight on Ellis Farm Fresh Meats

Every dot on the map needs a hometown grocer - a personable place where you can load up your buggy with beef, where you're called "darlin'" by the cashier at checkout and where you know your butcher by name. They're the jewels of small towns, the businesses that give a city personality. In this week's Local Spotlight, I visit a place that's served Bulloch County for more than 40 years in that very capacity.

Fun with Family with Julie Lavender - Family fun in February

February may be short on the calendar, but let's hope it's long on family fun. With the cold days the Boro has experienced in 2014 so far, make sure to create warm and cozy memories with those you love, enough to last until the groundhog comes out to play in the spring.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Assign individual tasks to each child to keep it fair

Q: I have three kids, ages 8, 6 and 4. I need help solving the "pick up the playroom" dilemma. When an area in which they've been playing needs to be picked up and straightened, the 8-year-old always ends up doing all the work. The other two continue to play or just pretend to help.

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.

Column: What about the children?

They are hungry and frightened, but the fear of the unknown isn't nearly as bad as the fear of the known.

The importance of education

It's that time of the year when the school system, from elementary to university level, start the prayers, organize the planning, order the books and stand back for the onrush of hopefully eager and determined students who will learn everything possible in preparation for the day of days! That day of days is when students get a full-time job, move out of the house and begin sending a portion of their vast earnings to good old mom and dad who will spend the rest of their days in frivolity and relaxation.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Nighttime bed-wetting may sort itself out

Q: Using your advice, I successfully toilet-trained my daughter by age 16 months. It is now three months later and we are still using diapers at naps and nighttime. At her nap, which lasts several hours, she fully soaks her diaper. At night, she is taking off her diaper prior to falling asleep, wetting the bed after she goes to sleep, and then crying for us when she wakes up in a pool of pee.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - Celebrate National Ice Cream Month

"I SCREAM, You SCREAM, we all SCREAM for ICE CREAM!" In 1984, President Ronald Reagan declared July National Ice Cream Month, and 30 years later the frosty treat is still one of America's favorite ways to celebrate summertime.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Called to be in, not of, the world

Does God want his children involved in the activities of our world? And if so, just what should that entail? This is a question that ought to be of concern to every Christian.

Take science seriously, but believe

At times, I enjoy the computer because there is so much information accessible at the touch of a button. I remember asking a student to type in the word cuneiform to see what she could find. She said, "It seems to be some kind of language, Mesopotamian or something, printed on a clay tablet. So what's the big deal?"
