Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Use of e-cigs could mean bigger issues

Q: I found a vaping pen hidden in my 13-year-old son's room and am at a loss as to how to deal with it. He is very susceptible to peer pressure and wants very badly to fit in with the "cool" kids. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Deer turned dinner -- Vegetable Venison Lasagna

Deer hunting season in Georgia has just come to a close, and the way I figure it, many of you Southeast Georgians who read my column probably love to hunt or at least have some men in your life who pride themselves on bringing home the meat. If at this time of year, you find yourself with a freezer full of venison and you're unsure of how to prepare it, I may be able to provide some inspiration.

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Lend a hand to help seniors learn

Retail commerce in this country is in the midst of radical, perhaps revolutionary, change. A rapidly growing proportion of retail sales are being done "online" through internet sites rather than on-site local stores. Amazon.com comes to mind immediately, but many other businesses sell things wholly or partly via the internet.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Patience is essential to please God, help others

Patience is one of those godly virtues to which the adage, "Easier said than done," can be applied. I guess that's true of all of them. But patience seems to be right up there with the most difficult. Yet, if we're to follow in Jesus' footsteps, we must be continually working to increase it in ourselves.

What's left after Christmas

After the last decoration has been taken down, after the Fitz & Floyd platters have been carefully shoved into the way-back of the china cabinet, after the programs and pageants and parties have been reduced to cleverly captioned images on Instagram, what is left are the sounds. The real sounds.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Parents must step up to control 'brat'

One of the biggest problems among today's parents - especially mothers - concerns their tendency to think in psychological terms about their children's behavior problems. Mothers are more prone to this intellectual wandering than fathers not because of some gender-related characteristic but simply because mothers are the primary consumers of parenting material.

ON Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Winter blues are a real malady — and many suffer from it

It's a new year and the last big holiday for a long time. A few football games remain, but they don't mean much to a lot of people and others don't get interested in basketball until March. So, the thrill of precious presents and sumptuous food is gone. What we have left is short, cold days and long dark nights. Tis the season for the winter blues, a real malady affecting many sufferers - young, old and in between.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Son must step up, fix issues with mom

Q: My ex-husband and I have pretty much fifty-fifty custody of our 15-year-old son, who has become infected with his father's disrespect for me. When he's with me, he makes it very clear that he does not want to be here. He refuses to do anything I tell him to do or accept any attempt at discipline from me, curses at me, and has even pushed me on a couple of occasions. I believe his father is a very bad influence, which is the only reason I continue to exercise my custody rights. Is there anything I can ...

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Plan for a year of family fun

Tinsel and lights have trickled back to the attic just in time for the breaking of the new year. Warm memories of the holiday season lingher, just like the unseasonably warm temperatures. But nevertheless, a new year is upon us. Along with a list of New Year's resolutions that may be quickly abandoned, give equal thought to goals and plans for an entire year of family fun and memory-making. Be deliberate with family activities each month of 2017. Plan for far-away hikes and local walks, new recipes and restaurants, game nights and dance parties, lots and lots of bedtime ...

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Luck, prosperity and a little Hoppin' John

New Year's Day is here, and every good Southerner knows what that means: It's time to cook up a hearty meal that echoes the good vibes a brand-new year can bring: luck, prosperity and cash flow. Whether you're on board with the belief that eating pork, collard greens, black-eyed peas and corn bread can increase your wealth in the New Year, the way I figure it, eating good never hurt a soul. And why leave fortune to chance? Luck be a black-eyed pea, tonight.
