John Bressler - Make marriage much more than just a contract

I was walking to my classroom the other day and, as I passed by another room, a young lady asked if I would step inside. She looked at one of the other students and said, "Ask him." His question, "When you get married and give someone a ring, isn't that a contract?' I started out with an engagement ring, which is given as a promise, and then to the wedding ring, which is a sign and symbol for the bride and groom as well as to the public that these folks are married and plan to be a faithful ...

Matt Yogus on Sports - Looking behind the hype of the NFL Draft

Kathy Bradley - Hiding is what we do when fear besieges the fortresses of our hearts

I have this friend. We've known each other for over 30 years. We don't see each other often, but when we do we don't have to reacquaint or search for topics of conversation. We tease and laugh and remember easily.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - It takes courage to stand up for justice

If you're a golfer, you're likely to be familiar with the name Lee Trevino, the "Merry Mex" and "Supermex" who made his living playing professional golf for many years. In a television documentary several years ago, the commentator told about Trevino's efforts to get on the PGA tour as a young "nobody," noting the difficulty of getting past the credentials committee's reluctance to accept him because of his assumed inexperience. There was also the issue of Lee's Mexican heritage.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Did Spanish, French or English first discover Georgia?

The colony of Georgia was discovered, many say, by the Spaniards. However, some of the earliest maps of Georgia drawn by those who led expeditions to the New World do not show the topography couched in Spanish terms but rather in English or in French.

Kathy Bradley - Make my eggs anything but over easy

They were just eggs. Ordinary eggs. Scrambled for breakfast, fried hard and slapped between two pieces of white bread with mayonnaise, broken into pound cake batter in fat gold globes. But once a year they were anything but ordinary.

John Bressler - Easter is over so now what?

Easter is over, now what? As a pastor, I remember the day after Easter when I would look at my calendar and think how quiet the church will be, for a week maybe, and I can catch up on some stuff I had put aside until after the celebration was over. The fact is that the world goes on, everyday problems still exist and if we relax too much, opportunities can pass us by quicker than the blink of an eye.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - There are plenty of items ‘Made in U.S.A.’

Everyone out there needs to be clear on one thing - manufacturing is an important part of the U.S. economy. Manufacturing is strategically critical and must always be a part of the economy. While it is changing, manufacturing is not going to disappear. In fact, there is now a trend toward bringing it back. But we have a significant problem in this country because of the public perceptions to the contrary.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Enjoy the beauty of Springtime

When temperatures continued to dip night after night and snow blanketed Statesboro for the first time in several years, we wondered if springtime would ever visit again. But, just as faithful as the inevitable turning of the calendar page, so too is the faithfulness and beauty of springtime. Spring has arrived with grand splendor – from fluffy, white blossoms, to deep hues of purple and pink, to shades of green too many to count, to brilliant yellows and crimsons swaying in the farmers' fields. How can one fail to celebrate the beauty of spring when such delightful colors adorn the Earth ...

Kathy Bradley: Lennon and McCartney and Grannie

A flock of blackbirds covers the field. Two hundred, maybe. Silent and still before rising, as though at the lift of some unseen maestro's baton, into the air in one loud flap like a bleached sheet on a clothesline. I watch and listen and shiver. Blackbirds. Sign of cold weather.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Pull-ups are permissible in special cases

Q: My 23-month-old son does well with potty training when we're at home. We use a "potty bell" and he goes every 90 minutes or so. When we're away from home, however, he seems clueless. He pees in his car seat about 5 minutes into a trip and simply will not use a potty anywhere but at our home or at my mother's (she watches him one day a week at her place). Would pull-ups be a bad thing to use when we leave the house?

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Can you sleep when the wind blows?

Mr. Jones, the owner of a small farm on the coast, advertised for a hired hand. But people were hesitant about working on farms in the area out of fear of the terribly destructive storms that so often threatened buildings, crops and the lives of both people and animals. Consequently, the farmer found it almost impossible to hire anyone to help him with the work.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk: Living the dream through cupcakes and coffee

It's mid-morning on a sunny Saturday, after a satisfying brunch and visit to my local farmers' market. Dressed completely casually with nowhere to be, I stroll along East Main Street in downtown Statesboro to find an inviting sidewalk chalkboard and the doors open wide at CAKE Bakery and Cool Beanz Espresso Bar. Upon entering, I discover much more than cupcakes and caffeine. Here two kindred spirits - one culinary artist and one head coffee geek - have joined forces to make their dreams a reality.
