Kathy Bradley - About a bee's last line of defense

One day last week, during one of the more temperate - though brief - moments in what has been a rather schizophrenic weather pattern, I went out on the deck to read. There were probably 10 or 12 different bird calls echoing in the branch and the wind chimes were tink-tink-tinking from the lowest limb of the chinaberry tree.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy

James, the Lord's brother, says of rich farmers who took advantage of their workers, "...listen! Hear the cries of the field workers whom you have cheated of their pay. The wages you held back cry out against you. The cries of the reapers have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty. You have spent your years on earth in luxury, satisfying your every whim. Now your hearts are nice and fat, ready for the slaughter. You have condemned and killed good people who had no power to defend themselves against you." (James 4:4-6 - New Living Translation)

Diane Miller - Healthy families spend time together

Strong, healthy and resilient families spend lots of time together. Each family needs quantity as well as quality time. Active lifestyles of today take away valuable time and create family stress.

Gardening with Henry Clay

Shade and flowering trees in your lawn are able to get some of their required nutrients from your lawn, provided the lawn is fertilized annually. However, the needed nutrients for shade and flowering trees in other parts of your garden or landscape are often ignored.

Diane Miller - Numbers reflecting family life

One of the concerns of the profession of family and consumer sciences is the quality of life for individuals and families. Quality of life varies with individual standards and availability to resources. One way to judge quality of life for groups of people is the use of statistics. The following information is from the 2008 Georgia County Guide.

Bulloch History by Roger Allen

Everyone knows how important it is to be "on time." Consider, then, how confusing it was back before time was standardized, when each town's time was truly its own. From the very beginning of Bulloch County's settlement, all activities were ruled by the rising and setting of the sun.

Gardening with Stephanie Tames

Most everyone has heard the saying that "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery." For the gardener, imitation is also the surest way to success. That's the advice of Bob Randolph, who, for 18 years, has made Georgia Southern Botanical Garden a showplace of old-fashioned southern favorites and native plants of the Southeastern Coastal Plain.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy

One of the ideas held by many in our culture is that there are few, if any, absolute truths or principles. When Jesus pronounces that he is "the way, the truth and the life," and that "No one comes to the Father except through (him)" (John 14:6), the response is often "So, what?" An insistence on taking Scripture's words as a guidepost for spiritual direction is seen as narrow-minded.

For Young Readers by Lindsey and Paige Oliver

In the world of young adult literature, few figures are so impressive as Avi. Though often passed over in favor of classic or more modern novels, his works, which include "The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle" and "The Man Who Was Poe," strike a balance which few, if any, writers have obtained. While engaging and thoroughly kid-friendly, stories penned by Avi often plumb the darkness of human nature, injecting mature themes so subtly and skillfully that they rarely seem out of place, even in a book for younger audiences. His are multi-faceted works-enjoyable and fun at most moments, but ...

Diane Miller - Healthy families communicate

Without exception, every research study completed on family strengths lists communication as a trait of strong or healthy families. The family members in strong families enjoy talking to each other. However, it is not just talking or verbal communication that is important. The non-verbal messages sent out are also heeded.

Bulloch History by Roger Allen

On Nov. 14, 1902, it was announced that Bulloch County's very first industrial enterprise would be, literally, a community undertaking. A Mr. Preston asked the citizens to subscribe to his plan to build a seed mill in Statesboro, estimating it would take $30,000 to build the plant.

Gardening with Stephanie Tames

It started out innocently. I always dreamed of having a garden enclosed by ivy-covered walls, like the pictures I had seen of English country cottages. The naked cinder block wall in my back yard cried out for cover. Here was my chance to begin the garden I always wanted. With a small piece of rooted English ivy (Hedera helix) from a friend, I began my long-dreamed-of ivy covered walls.
