We lost a great friend of Beebe last week (Tues., Feb. 6th) – Dennis Gillam. As you can see from the story on the front page of this issue, he passed suddenly. I know that everyone in this city who knew Dennis could tell you a “Dennis story” and I could, as well. He was […]

Last Saturday, Jan. 13th, the state of Hawaii was rocked by a missile launch alert which stated “this is not a drill.” Tourists and residents alike were terrorized – as you might imagine – and didn’t know what to do.

Well, here we are in the second week of the new year! Time marches on! The other day I was watching television and I was thinking about all the time we waste watching commercials!

I hope you had a great New Year’s! I did what I usually do – stay home and cuddle with my cats. I know that doesn’t sound too exciting but it makes me happy. Besides – it was too cold to go out and I’m still recovering from the flu.. I am doing well – […]

Well – looking at last week’s column, I can tell you that apparently when you have the flu – you aren’t real aware of the font size you are using. Wow! If you need glasses to read the paper – you probably didn’t last week! Sorry! I am better this week and am watching the little […]

Wow! Can you believe it is less than two weeks until Christmas? I can’t!!!! It always slips up on me but this year I have been somewhat preoccupied planning and completing my niece Chelsea’s baby shower. It was this past Sunday and it went off pretty well. Her mother-in-law Susanne Lee and I did the […]
