John Bressler - Sorry, I don't take surveys

Proverbs 22:6 (with my scribal insert), "Teach a child in the way he or she should go, and when he or she is old will not depart from it." I would like to say, "Teach your kids all you can when they are little and quit worrying. They'll be just fine."

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Patriots hated, feared Coffell

Colonel Joseph Coffell (or Scophol) was said by Patriot General William Moultrie to have been an "illiterate, stupid, and noisy blockhead." Stupid though he may have been, he certainly gave them a great deal of trouble.

Our Views: Council members owe citizens explanation for using taxpayer money

The Statesboro City Council essentially fired City Manager Shane Haynes Tuesday night. Perhaps they did him a favor by calling for his resignation, which qualifies him for a healthy severance payout, or they saved themselves from another expensive lawsuit.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Don't need flood insurance? Check the map

Much to the dismay of many local residents, the federal government has lowered the "flood" boom, so-to-speak. With the implementation of the new FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) flood zone maps on August 5th, many residents are finding that their property and homes are now classified as being in a special flood hazard area.

Kathy Bradley - Chant for more rain gets louder

My mother is a seamstress. I grew up sitting on the floor at her feet playing with cards of buttons and seam binding, arranging dozens of spools of thread in prism arcs, studiously examining pictures and descriptions on pattern envelopes. It should come as no surprise, then, that images of the natural world often come to me in dressmaker's terms.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - So what day of the week is it?

The term week came from the Saxon word "wikon," signifying 'a turn, or a succession of, as in days.' The Babylonians had long used the seven-day week, and it may be from Babylon the Hebrews adopted it after their captivity in the sixth century B.C.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Devil, stress no match for God

Mental tension and pressure have been realities for people since the garden of Eden. Adam and Eve weren't exempt from the demands inherent in the privilege and responsibility of free will. Beginning with them, and flowing through the history of mankind, stress has been a part of our existence. Even babies experience stress when hungry, or a diaper needs changing.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - What happened to the Victory Lane project

In February 2007, I wrote about an ambitious development in Cobbtown called Victory Lane. Let me spend a few words to briefly reacquaint you with that project.

My Take with Matt Yogus - So how good is this GSU offense?

That new-car smell has worn off a little bit, and Jeff Monken's triple-option offense has gotten enough miles under its belt three games into the season to give us at least a pretty good idea of what kind of team the Georgia Southern Eagles have in the first year of the third new era of the last decade.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - God is always 'on the job!'

"The Lord was really lookin' out for me." That was my comment, made to a fairly new friend the other day as we visited over a cup of coffee, about a recent good turn of events. Bill, who isn't a practicing Christian, has heard me make similar observations about God's providence a number of times in the months I had known him. Maybe like you, I've made this particular one often in my life as a dependent child of God.

John Bressler - The forces of nature and God

Julie and I decided it was time, after about three or four years, to clean the windows and put up the screens for the approach of Fall and the cooler weather. Actually, Julie made the decision and it took me a bit to get motivated. Fear is a great motivator, by the way.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - How many days in a year?

The term 'year' comes, surprisingly enough, from the Saxon word "jear," meaning seasons. The ancient Saxons observed just two seasons: Summer, when the days were longer than the nights; and Winter, when the nights were longer than the days.

Once in a while, a mysterious envelope will appear on my desk. The envelope is always typed, and the missive inside is always unsigned.

It's no secret, "we" have a weight problem. So whenever America has a problem, the entrepreneurs get busy.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Make autumn awesome for the whole family

The weather in the 'Boro seems bent on keeping us guessing. Is it a raincoat day? Sweater day? Or shorts-and-sunglasses day? But the gentle tease of recent cool weather lets us know fall truly is coming, eventually, maybe in December. Enjoy all that fall offers, regardless of the thermometer, and make this an incredibly awesome autumn with your family. Celebrate the usual - fair week, Columbus Day, football games, church fall festivals and trick-or-treat night - and add a few of the zany but real holidays below to the family calendar for October.

It's been more than a week since the Statesboro City Council voted unanimously to accept a settlement agreement that closed Rudy Rudy's for good and required owner Johnathan Starkey to never again apply for a liquor license in the city.
