Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - It's really hard to please everybody

Are you a "people-pleaser"? Do you try to make everybody like you and accept everything you do as what you ought to do? Some are, you know.

Kathy Bradley - Every moment is perfectly balanced

At 1:32 p.m. last Saturday, after a winter that was long and hard and heavy, spring arrived. At that moment, known as the vernal equinox, the center of the sun was on the same plane as the equator of the earth and there was a perfect balance of light and dark.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Yummy! Cookie Cutters opening on Monday

I just love "happy" food - food that invokes memories of good times and joyous occasions. Years ago when our children were small, we lived in Tampa, Florida. On Friday afternoons, I would stop by the Alessi Bakery and pick up a few iced sugar cookies in different colors and designs to take home to our two girls and their friends.

John Bressler - I can live with that hope

When grandmothers get together, what do they talk about? If this were Jeopardy, the answer would be so simple, "Grandchildren!" And so, Shelba began to lovingly talk about Jonathan McGahee, a middle grandson home from Iraq on leave, soon to return, and what he was doing over there. She spoke of a young, likable, passionate outdoorsman with a heart as big as the world who realizes he has a responsible job and does what must be done. "He won't talk about danger or stress because he doesn't want his family to worry. He's glad to be home ...

John Bressler - Check out the Bible; it's still a great read

"A", "an" and "the" are the most common articles. While "a" and "an" are called indefinite or non-specific, the article "the" is both definite and specific. Hold this thought for a while.

Spring is always a flirt. Occasionally a tease. But this year, ah, this year Spring has been nothing short of ... well, a liar.

Holli Deal Bragg - Rest in peace, Black Betty

It's funny how we become attached to things. Things, not people. Sometimes it seems inanimate objects actually have personalities, and we come to view them like old friends.

Want a Census job? Then apply right now

I saw some literature last week from the U.S. Census Bureau stating that the organization was actively hiring in our area. Today, I was able to speak with two people that are working for the Census Bureaus, but unfortunately, neither could speak officially for the organization.

Kathy Bradley - A mimosa in time

What is this? A mimosa tree? Its slender branches are curved in an arc out over the ditch. Its fingerling leaves are dangling over my head. Its barkless trunk is all but hidden among the grapevines and pine trees and scrub oaks. I have walked by this very spot hundreds of times, driven by it thousands of times. How could I have never noticed a mimosa tree?

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Five-year-old wants to touch his cousin

Q: Our 5-year-old grandson sees his 5-year-old female first cousin from time to time. After they play for a while, he tells her he wants to "touch" her. This has happened twice in recent months. Her parents are very upset, but our grandson's parents read lots of parenting books and seem to think it's no big deal. Your thoughts on this matter?

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - My moment with the queen of Southern cuisine

As many of you may know, Paula Deen recently held two live shows in Savannah as part of her "Paula Deen LIVE!" tour. I had made plans to attend long before her team reached out to me in late July, and I wouldn't in my wildest dreams have imagined the events that followed.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Our victories come from God

Somewhere in the neighborhood of 20 years or so ago (not long after Carole and I moved from Arkansas to Statesboro), I learned of an opportunity to tour a WWII vintage U.S. Army Air Force B-17 bomber on display at the Statesboro airport. The study of history has been a favorite pursuit of mine since college, so I jumped at the chance to actually see this famous aircraft, "up close and personal!"
