Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Vacationing on Florida's nervous west coast

My editor Jim Healy forgot that this is my vacation "week", i.e., I normally don't write a column this week. When he called me on Thursday to firm up what we were doing, I just laughed, because I really didn't have anything to offer.

New tax on tanning beds leaves me burned

I don't know about you all, but I have just have had it with that crowd in Washington, D.C., and the "removed" way from the populous that they govern. The latest installment in their arbitrary manner of "ruling" is the "tanning" tax levied on the sale of tanning bed time.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - States rights: American as apple pie

One of the hottest topics in our current political climate is "States Rights." Members of the American Continental Congress were appointed by their state's governors to guard their state's rights as much as they were to form a union while writing the "Articles Of Confederation."

Old Franklin's North Main site to get a facelift

This will probably sound somewhat negative, but I think you might agree with me regarding my opinion about the northwest corner of the intersection of North Main Street and Northside Drive - the location where Franklins Restaurant operated for so many decades.

John Bressler - So, do you think there are puppies in Heaven?

There are a lot of days that I just sit and think. I used to try to walk and think at the same time but quit after walking into a tree and falling into a ditch. "Did God ever raise a puppy? Was the puppy house-broken or was he just turned loose in the Garden of Eden for Adam and Eve to teach him all the things puppies must learn? Who did most of the cleaning up, Adam or Eve?"

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Timber! Value of forest land sees decline

I have written about real estate a great deal over the last several years. Like everywhere else in the country, Bulloch County and the surrounding area have gone through a boom and now a significant slowdown since 2003.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Disney business model much more than a 'mouse'

On June 22, Ogeechee Tech in conjunction with the Ogeechee Technical College Foundation will host the famed Disney Institute. I have to confess that I did not know there was such a thing until my husband attended the Disney Institute program that was held in Atlanta a month or so ago.

Holli Deal Bragg - BOE should give Portal more respect

Ever hear of a little ol' town called Portal? It's a unique little place. Not a very rich or fancy community, nothing remarkable to look at unless you take into consideration the Carter Turpentine Still or the mural painted on the side of a building commemorating the town's turpentine history.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Soon, you can 'Monkey' around in the Boro

The Market District in Statesboro just keeps chugging along. The latest entrant - Monkey Joe's Parties and Play - an interactive indoor party center filled with an array of giant air-filled play structures, jumps, slides, obstacle courses, developmental games and "wacky" party rooms.

Kathy Bradley - The beauty of looking back at youth as you grow older

A computer hard drive is a lot like a junk drawer. Every so often you have to go in because there is always the chance that, back in the corner with the pennies sticky with Kool-Aid, under the 2-year-old church bulletin and in an envelope decorated with Hello Kitty stickers, you may find the key to the safety deposit box or your mother's engagement ring. Don't ask me why; that's just the way it is.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: The evils of spanking? Well, not so much.

It's time once again for me to clarify my position on spanking. I arrived at this reluctant conclusion because twice in the last week, I've been informed that I believe in it - which is not exactly true.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Enjoy feasts and fellowship this month

Again, recent temperatures belie the season, but it truly is the month of November in south Georgia. Whether warm or crisp, it's the season to be thankful for a bountiful harvest: the love of family and friends and all the memories both have provided throughout the year. Incorporate a spirit of thankfulness in every day with each event, feast or fellowship. Be grateful for the minutiae and the mighty, and enjoy the beauty of November with those you love.

There is a cure for all illness

I have had a certain amount of interest concerning John Forbes Nash Jr. ever since Julie and I saw the very loosely-based movie on his life, "A Beautiful Mind." I also liked the fact that he was born in Bluefield, West Virginia - only a hop, skip and jump from Huntington - and I could claim a certain amount of kinship. The man was a mathematical genius, a schizophrenic and pretty odd. I do not claim any of what I just wrote as kinship. His basic theory was, "any abstract Riemannian manifold can be isometrically realized as a submanifold of Euclidean space."

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Parents unwittingly pass anxiety to their kids

Since the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year, several elementary teachers have asked me why so many of today's kids come to school with anxiety issues. That's a good question, one that I think goes to the heart of contemporary American parenting.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: In the light or the dark: Where will you live?

A preaching friend I knew in south Mississippi about a hundred years ago recently wrote about his summer vacations at his "Granddaddy and Mamaw's" house and the "neat" experience of having to get drinking water via the hand pump and dipper at the well. I wrote him and told him I could remember similar experiences at my dad's family farm in Indiana. The biggest differences, I guess, were the lack of a pump on the well. Grandpa used a bucket, rope and pulley to get the water up, though there was a hand pump attached to the kitchen ...

Kathy Bradley: "Deep and Wide" for grown-ups

The local, as in Savannah, public radio station is off the air right now as a result of damage from a lightning storm. Without the voices of Steve Inskeep and David Greene and - since it's October and the Supreme Court is in session - Nina Totenberg igniting the pilot light of my brain, I have been left to entertain myself as I perform my morning ablutions. So I sing.
