I am happy to report this week that I am unopposed for my position as Alderman, Ward 1, Pos. 1. So, come Jan. 2017, I will be a member of the Beebe City Council. I am very happy to take this next step into politics – even though on some level – I feel as […]

Wow – the summer went by so fast! Well- officially, I guess it’s still summer but since our kids started back to school yesterday (Monday) – it seems like just a hop and skip until fall is officially here. And the weather seems like it this week. Cool temps and rain – heavy and then […]

Well – as you can see from our front page – the political season here locally is picking up. As some of you may know, I am running for City Council but I have chosen not to publish my official announcement until after I file on July 29th. That’s just me. It is fine that […]

We all had a great time at the city’s 4th of July event last night! It was very well attended and especially by children. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many kids at this event in past years. There were 3 water features there and the kids were loving it. And, oddly enough, it […]

As I am writing this (Tues. afternoon) my sister is in surgery at UAMS. I heard from my niece that the leg surgery was finished and went well. She just had to have some necrotic tissue removed (dead skin) and then just sew together the good skin. The possibly lengthy surgery – which is now […]

I will begin by giving you an update of my sister. She will have surgery this coming Tuesday on her arm and leg – at the same time. Thankfully, she insisted that both of these surgeries should be done at the same time. She didn’t want to have two more surgeries and two more general […]
