Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Chili: The beef and bean phenomenon

About this time every year, without fail, you can find a 24-ounce can of Italian diced tomatoes, kidney beans and ground beef in my shopping cart. When the weather begins to welcome fall and football season, my mouth starts watering for a big pot of chili, but not just any ol' chili. Smoky and slightly sweet, my award-winning recipe is developed over a few hours, simmering gently on the stovetop and filling my home with the comforting aroma of bacon and onion.

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Getting on after Irma

Hurricane Irma, the second disastrous Atlantic storm to hit the U.S. in less than a month, has come and gone. New ones are upon us in a cascade of misery. Irma's destruction among the islands, the Florida Keys, up the length of Florida, in Georgia and South Carolina was beyond description. Some places may never recover. Still, it left some golden nuggets.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Portal a source of angst for parents Portal a source of angst f

Q: Our son attends first grade at the local public school. At the beginning of the school year, all the parents were basically told that we are expected to go to the school's parent website every day to keep up with our kids' homework assignments. In addition, the "Parent Portal," as it's called, also lets us know what we are expected to help with at home. In effect, we are being made responsible for what, in our estimation, is a teacher's responsibility. We are expected to know the material, monitor homework, and see to it that every ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Not a big deal can be, well, a big deal

I am a member of the last generation of American children who were no big deal. No one made a big deal over me, ever. Not my mother, my father, or anyone else. For my parents, raising me properly was a big deal, but I was not. It may come as a shock and surprise to some readers, but the process and the person are two different things.

No window dressing

When the click and flicker that signaled the loss of power sent the house into dimness and silence, I thought about going through the rooms and turning everything off. Then I realized I wasn't sure exactly what had been on, which lamps, which ceiling fans, which ceiling lights. All that light - all that automatic, instantly available, taken for granted light - and in less than 10 seconds I'd forgotten which of the many switches produced it.

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Stormy weather

Hurricane Harvey produced unprecedented flooding and indescribable human misery; much of it captured in images from news cameras and cell phones. Among the most disturbing of these images were those from flooded nursing homes with aged residents trapped in wheelchairs as the water level climbed toward their shoulders. There is no final count of handicapped elderly who were rescued by armies of heroes who saved so many in Texas and Louisiana or of those who died in their homes.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Spend more time talking with, listening to God

Sometime back, I read about a man and his young son who were driving to the McDonald's restaurant in their community. As they neared their destination, they noticed an accident up ahead, involving several vehicles. The police and ambulance attendants were busy trying to sort things out and help those who were hurt. Out of concern for the injured, the father suggested to his son that they pray for the people. Then he heard his son say, very quietly, "Please God, don't let all those cars keep us from getting into McDonald's!"

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Saying 'no' now can save much heartache

Responding to my recent columns on video games and smartphones, a reader asks what the problem is, thus proving that these devices can and do cause serious harm to one's cognitive hardware. He, the father of two boys and a gamer himself, in effect claims that parents are imagining things and researchers are not finding what they are finding.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Heading into an awesome autumn

Just a few days ago, Statesboro caught a glimpse of fall as the temperatures dropped and the breezes caused the trees to wave their limbs and leaves heavenward. A welcomed change from the scorching heat before, the pleasant days were just a tease of autumn as the summer sun and temperatures crept back onto the calendar. But it's coming - it really is.
