John Bressler - The horror of living with anger

About 30 years have passed since I last saw this lady, so I guess I can tell you a bit of her story. The Presbyterians had just built a grand fully-functioning retirement center with all the perks: it was right next to the inter-coastal waterway, had a large swimming pool, a third-floor medical center, a bowling alley, craft rooms, fine private rooms and a couple of penthouses for those who had the cash. Since the facility was right around the corner from my church, I served as the go-to pastor in emergencies.

Holli Deal Bragg - True friendship and memories never fade

Having been on "the outside looking in" recently, I learned a valuable lesson. Time may change a lot of things, but it doesn't change true friendship, it doesn't change memories, and it doesn't change history.

My Take with Matt Yogus - A different kind of Signing Day at GSU

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - 'Wedding Walk' another good economic sign

Sometimes, it's all about having fun, and from what I can tell, this year's Statesboro Bride Wedding Walk was a ton of fun for those that attended and those who staged the event, as well.

Brain Food with Ken Keller - Do you have a plan to bring in new clients?

Along with Valentine's Day, add these celebrations to your calendar for special family time memories.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Treaty pushes Creeks out of Georgia

In 1770, Augusta-based Creek Indian traders informed the Royal Governor of Georgia's staff that the Creek Indian "Head Men" were anxious to settle their outstanding debts that had accrued since 1761 by giving up a large portion of their tribal hunting grounds.

John Bressler - The wonders of the Henderson Library never cease

It's early in the semester and I am standing on the wrong side of a very large glass partition separating the Henderson Library foyer, lobby, entrance - or "the way in," as we locals like to say - from the first floor. On the other side is a plethora - or pot-full - of students trying to get to my assigned class room. I am now writing on the glass with a large erasable marker, "Come to the second floor, take the far elevator or the stairs, come back down to the first floor and follow me to room 1300." This is a ...

Tommy Palmer's Sports Comment - UGA basketball rebounds

Coach Mark Fox was hired to be the new Basketball Coach at The University of Georgia almost two years ago, and most Georgia boosters at the hiring said, "Mark Who?" Now, most of the state's basketball fans can tell you who Fox is, and that the up-and-coming Bulldog basketball team is making giant strides in a short period of time.

Tommy Palmer's Sports Comment - Verbal commitments are just that!

I find it quite interesting that every College football fan in the nation gets all fired up about verbal commitments from High School football players. After all, over the past few years I have seen many prepsters change their minds on signing day, much to the dismay of old Home State University.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - East Georgia ER? Yep, there's an 'app' for that

If you love technology, particularly cell phone technology, then you already know that phone 'apps,' as they are commonly referred to, are one of the tsunamis in technology development.

Kathy Bradley - Winter, like everything, has its moments

Ice hung off the eaves of the carport like jagged dragon teeth in a preschooler's drawing of scary. Stiff and unresponsive to the wind that came rushing across the field and crying like a banshee, the ice-covered limbs of the sycamore tree could have been the dragon's claws, sharp and pointed and crooked at awkward angles. Standing in the doorway, huddled inside my overcoat, I would have welcomed a quick puff of the dragon's fire breath - just enough to break the chill until I could get into the car.

Editorial - Making Statesboro safer: A good start

A significant drop in the crime rate reported last week by the Statesboro Police Department is good news, indeed, and a positive sign that recent efforts at increasing cooperation between local law enforcement agencies is working. Based on data compiled by the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting Program, Part 1 crimes - the most serious and violent crimes - dropped 10.5 percent in 2014 compared to 2013.

No time for distractions

I was talking to a colleague Monday and ended up in a remarkable conversation that went from exercise to distractions and eventually to Christianity. Hey! I don't plan these meetings. They just seem to happen. Let's call them Providence.

Black History Month

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Celebrate the "love month"

Seems a little unreasonable that the month of February, the one that touts hearts and love and sweethearts and chocolate, is the shortest month on the calendar. But, that just means extra care and attention must be given each day to those we love. Warm up the days in February with time spent with family - bundle up and go for long walks, roast marshmallows, read books under the covers or gather in the kitchen and prepare a big pot of soup. Make every day a celebration with unique ideas or try some of the holidays below.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: These parents may need some therapy

My column of a few weeks back in which I described real-life parenting scenarios that qualified the parents in question for a diagnosis of "just plain nuts" was a big hit. Since it ran, readers have sent me numerous examples of parents who indeed seem to qualify as JPN and be in need, therefore, of You Ought to be Ashamed of Yourself Therapy.

Singing songs of the good news

About four years ago, comedian Steve Martin, who is also one great banjo player, wrote an interesting piece of music, "Atheists don't have no songs." Yes, I know that's a double negative. According to Martin, their hymnbook is only one page and if the name of God is there, it's spelled with a lower case "g." Go figure.
