This is the week of Thanksgiving! Traditionally - not a big week in our newspaper because everyone is focused on where they are going or who is coming to their house or what they need to prepare for the gathering. No matter what you plan on doing this Thanksgiving, I hope it is one filled [...]
Wow! This has been a busy week or two. I’ve been divided between attending special council meetings and attending all the Veterans Day ceremonies as well as the Fall Festival at Open Arms Assembly of God and the Beebe United Methodist Church Women’s Bazaar. It’s been busy. But I have to say I had fun [...]
When you know you are writing a column each week - you are constantly mentally saying, “I need to talk about that in my column.” Only problem is, with me, if I don’t write it down at the time, it usually goes the way of so many other “great ideas” that are swirling around in [...]
I hope you had a fun Halloween. I went to three church functions and then rode for awhile with Beebe Police Cpt. Eddie Cullum. I say “ride” but we actually pretty much just stayed in one or two places as Trick or Treaters went by and Cpt. Eddie gave the kids candy. We were in [...]

Tonight (Tues.) is the Democratic debate from Las Vegas. [...]
This past Friday, Oct. 2, was my mom’s 88th birthday. I wanted to do something special with her so naturally I thought, “Why not take her to Heber Springs to visit the trout hatchery…!” Of course, this is something most 88-yr.olds would love to do (ha!) - and my mom was a real sport about [...]
The other day I was at City Hall where we were celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Nick’s Garage. It was a fun time and quite the accomplishment. Congratulations to William Nick and his brother Clarence and Frank Jackson - for all the good work they do at Nick’s Garage.
Also - we had some refreshments [...]
Autumn begins tomorrow (Wed., Sept. 23) and the temperatures are still pretty high during the day but now we’re getting a bit cooler at night. The humidity is finally falling a little bit so it is beginning to feel like the beginning of Fall.
I’m watching television as I write this and Pope Francis is about [...]
