Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Sage advice to young parents everywhere -- Lighten up

When I began reading "The 9 Words Parents Should Never Say to Their Kids" (Jan. 5, 2018, www.fatherly.com), I was skeptical that essayist Patrick Coleman's point of view would line up with my own, and I wasn't disappointed. Coleman began by saying that certain words have "overwhelmingly negative consequences" to children but only one of his nefarious nine met my never-say standard.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Ingratitude is such a terrible tragedy

In Luke 17:11-19, we find an incident in the life of Jesus that is at once both joyous and sad. As Jesus was traveling toward Jerusalem, he passed through some of the cities and villages of Samaria and Galilee to the north. As he entered one village a group of lepers, 10 of them in all, saw Jesus and called out for him to heal them. They did not come near him, for they were inflicted with a terrible disease, which evidently was in its advanced stages. The Master saw them, and having compassion on them, told them to ...

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Countdown to farmers market season

The return of the farmers market for me each season is just about as exciting as Christmas Day. Springtime brings me so much joy! With fresh herbs and local produce on my mind, I love getting up on Saturday morning, throwing on my yoga pants with a tank top, a pair of favorite flip flops and my over-sized sunglasses, and heading out the door. Sometimes, I even pack up my 10-pound Shih Tzu, Ewok, and we ride with the radio up and the windows down on the way.

He can fly...He can fly...He flew!

The famous lyric in the song "You Can Fly" indicates that Peter Pan could indeed take to the sky. But audiences treated to a performance at Statesboro High School this week learned that those famous flying tights belonged in this production to Madelyn Wolfe - and that she, too, could fly.

Disney World and dragging ditches

They dragged the ditches a few weeks ago. They hauled their big, noisy, mustard yellow machines out to my edge of the county - the imaginary line separating Bulloch from Evans - and set about scooping every imaginable form of detritus from the long, open graves. Once exhumed, the roots and rocks, broken bottles and aluminum cans, plastic bags with faded logos, were tossed into - and left in - the middle of the road.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Today's parenting culture puts high premium on high IQ

Parents of children who habitually lie can breathe a huge sigh of relief - The New York Times says that budding Pinocchios are more intelligent than kids who tell the truth ("Is Your Child Lying to You? That's Good," Alex Stone, Jan. 5, 2018). The Grey Lady's announcement is based on studies done in the 1980s in which young children who disobeyed an instruction and then denied having disobeyed were discovered to have higher IQs than those who admitted disobedience. A subsequent study found that most adults cannot tell when children are lying, a finding that seems - on the ...

The Dukes to headline show in the Boro March 31

You've got to love this digital age we live in. I recently sat down (at my computer on Facebook) for an in-depth interview (via Messenger) with Statesboro's newest band to hit the scene. Just over a month out from their Boro debut, I chatted with Jerry Roberson, Frank Farr, Sean Kent and Kendall Hadden who, together with Jay Stewart, make up "The Dukes." Between some good-natured ribbing and a few wisecracks, they filled me in on the details of how the band came to be.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Parmesan Shepherd's Pie for St. Patrick's Day

In the spirit of St. Patrick's Day, I'm sharing my version of Shepherd's Pie, a meat pie comfort food dish, topped with mashed potatoes. At my house, whenever leftover mashed potatoes are around, you can bet Shepherd's Pie will be on the menu soon. Cheesy, warm and full of vegetables, the flavors are familiar, and clean-up is easy. Using a cast iron skillet makes the job super simple.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: 'Old-fashioned' label isn't necessarily a bad thing for me

An individual who occupies a fairly high-level position in the mainstream media recently told one of my associates that I'm "old-fashioned." She meant it as a slight, but I hardly took it that way. I do, in fact, espouse a child-rearing philosophy and approach that prevailed when I was a child. To my media critic, I'm a throwback.
