What does 2013 have in store for us? Do you have any predictions? Do you have an inside rumor about a new business starting up in Bulloch County?

Let's try not to focus on politics for this one folks. There are things in life other than political discussions. Art & Entertainment, weather, gardening, home improvement, Science & Technology, Sports, and personal fitness just to name a few.

Just to get us started...

In the fall of 2013 we will be visited by Comet ISON for the first time in recent recorded history. There is some speculation that this comet is the Great Comet of 1680. About ISON, the consensus thus far is the comet will be brighter than a full moon. A few predictions state you will be able to see it during the day. Walkie suggests you read up on this comet as it will pass by earth very closely on Dec. 26th of this year.

Walkie's prediction is that it won't be as bright as some are stating.

Walkie's other predictions: The new Star Trek movie coming out in May will break all box office records for any movie in recent history. A big name chain restaurant will open in the Boro. Statesboro will lose a home-town restaurant.

The economy will continue to grow slowly. Georgia Southern and Ogeechee Tech will once again announce record enrollments. 2013 will be a record hot year surpassing or equaling the 1 degree Fahrenheit increase of 2012.

Ison may equal Kahoutek in overpublicity and lack of impressiveness. But I will be watching to find out.

Thank you for asking people not to mention the thing that I will not mention!

I am so looking forward to Fall when "Catching Fire" comes out. I know it may sound like a silly thing to look so forward to, but what can I say, I'm easily amused.

I predict that this year's boys in Blue and Gold will finally put our football team back on the map like it used to be. Go Jackets!

I also predict that like Walkie said, more big box will replace local in the 'Boro. I've been saying for years that it's becoming "Little Savannah" more and more.

GSU football will invite N Dakota State to the 'Boro for some payback in the playoffs.

Star Trek and Catching Fire will do well, but this time next year we will all be talking about Smaug the dragon from "The Hobbit."

A comet during the day? I will definitely be watching!!

Hi, As I was sitting next to the garden fountain in a certain famous restaurant on South Main, I wondered where the stuffed parrots were in the trees. Wouldn't it be nice to see stuffed birds in the garden along with sounds of a tropical rain forest - or the ...

Drive-by Windows
February 27, 2014
Hi, Some of us are wise enough to stay away from the drive-by windows. Others, could not survive in an ice storm without them. There must be a better way to order dinner than yelling back and forth through a speaker system that never works properly. Repeating orders while yelling ...

http://www.statesboroherald.com/section/1/article/56660/ According to the article printed in today's Herald (1/28/14), Councilman Lewis is blaming some of his troubles on store owners who come from India or Indian heritage. Why would a man who has lived through some of the darkest of times in our society lash out at others in ...

It's a bittersweet Christmas
December 26, 2013
Hi, For many GSU football fans, we are sad to see Coach Monken leave our field of gladiators in favor of coaching another great set of heroes. We wish him well and much success. We were hoping we could see a great match-up at Bobby Dodd stadium against Paul Johnson. ...
