Rev. Bennie Brinson: Making disciples

"... Every man is within his star, each in his time. Each man must respond to the call of God in his lifetime and not in somebody else's time."

The University of Owen

Owen is teaching me a lot. It is, of course, in his job description. A person doesn't take on the responsibility of a puppy without also accepting the unavoidable stretching, even breaking of one's parameters. I knew this when, on Halloween afternoon, I arrived at home to find him sitting under the carport with an expression on his face that could be read as either, "Where have you been? I've been so worried," or "Where have you been? I can't believe you kept me waiting."

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Bounty from the pines

In April, l will team with my friend Douglas Chassareau for a presentation on turpentining for the Bulloch County Historical Society. Doug, a Georgia Forestry Service veteran, probably knows more on the subject - past and present - than anyone else alive. Revisiting my resource materials has reminded me of how important turpentining has been to South Georgia. So, I am turning aside from columns on aging to write about this part of our heritage.

Technical education is first choice for SHS valedictorian

Upon first glance, Alexis Cribb seems like many new college students. She smiles a lot. She's courteous and has the proverbial stars in her eyes about her future. After talking with her at length though, you know Cribb is different.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: No talking can be the cure for common childhood fears

A true story: When my daughter, Amy, was a pre-teen, she became anxious about going to sleep because of fears of dying in the middle of the night. When I tucked her in (I was her preferred tucker-inner), she would tell me, usually tearfully, that she didn't want to go to sleep for fear of never waking up.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Feelings are the key for gun issues

We're a month, more or less, into the new year and America has already suffered two school shootings. As usual, the usual voices are calling for increased restrictions on the buying and selling of guns. But guns are not the problem, a contention I can prove.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: February is meant for family fun

Not really sure why the month that spotlights all-things love and kisses and hearts is the shortest month of the year, but that just means you'll have to be even more intentional to squeeze in all the family fun you can think of in just 28 days. Find a way to create enough warm memories to overcome the frigid temps the Boro has experienced and pack in some positively perfect family fun in February.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Some things the church needs and must have

Lessons learned from London Bridge

I was only 6 when my family moved from Mikell Street and yet it remains, all these years later, my neighborhood. The people who lived on that street and the one behind it, College Lane remain, all these years later, my people. So I don't suppose that the sadness that rose up in me when I heard the news of the death of one of my early playmates should have been totally unexpected. But it was.

Dr. Charles Bonds II: Headed for greatness

"Hey, Google! - Who taught in Wrens and Valdosta from 1966-1972; moved to Statesboro, and became the first black professor at Georgia Southern University in 1973; retired in 1996 as full Professor Emeritus, becoming the first black professor to earn full professorship in 1991; gained notoriety as the "Reading Professor" by giving "reading buddies" (stuffed animals) to children as he read wearing full academic regalia; and in 2009 penned, sang and produced his own Christmas carol CD- all while blind?"
