Last night I attended the monthly City Council meeting. During the meeting I was thinking how much public government is like your household management. You have to balance things that you need with things that you want and every once in awhile you get an “emergency/disaster” thrown in the mix. At last night’s meeting they [...]

I first met Dr. Couch many years ago when she was my instructor at ASU-Beebe in [...]

I hope you are having a good summer!  I don’t have a lot to say this week other than the days of summer are quickly dwindling to an end.
I remember when I was a kid and it seemed like summer lasted forever. And I was active and had lots to do but the three months [...]

I hope you all had a great 4th of July celebration - whether you came to the city’s extravaganza or had a celebration at home or with friends. The weather was fantastic. It almost felt a little “fall-ish” with the humidity being so low (for here). The high that day was about 83 degrees. One [...]
