The school year is almost over and even though the temperatures have been unseasonably low – the city swimming pool will open on Memorial Day, Monday May 29th. The kids probably won’t notice that the water temperature is pretty cool. I’m sure in July, we’ll be wishing for these temperatures. I think I mentioned earlier […]

I hope you had a great Mother’s Day and graduation – if you attended. The administration made a gutsy call to go ahead and have graduation outdoors – even though we had a couple of torrential rains during the day. But the bet paid off – and graduation was only dampened by a short mist […]

This Sunday, May 14th is Mother’s Day! I hope you and your family have a great celebration planned to honor your mother/grandmother/aunt or whomever has played that role in your life. I am lucky that my 89 yr. old mother is still in my life. She surprises me almost every day at what she knows, […]

This week all the seniors at Beebe High School are looking at the end of their high school careers. Graduation is May 12th, at 7:30 p.m. at A.S. “Bro” Erwin Stadium. This is one of the nights that I always enjoy. It is really nice to see kids that you remember from when they were […]

I hope you had a great Easter! I went to one event – our church’s Easter Egg Hunt – at Daniel Park. There were hundreds of kids there and the weather was perfect. It was fun to watch the young children run after those eggs and see the parents trying to guide the very young […]

This week my sister celebrated her birthday (not saying which one) but it reminded me of what we were doing this time last year. In 2016, on her birthday, my sister was in re-hab at White County Medical Center South. They were so nice to her there and she had a great experience and really […]

I hope you are having a great week! The weather is like a roller coaster – one day warm – the next day cool – typical Arkansas in the spring, right? I believe Pres. Trump’s real test has come as I am hearing of gas attack in Syria that has killed women and children under […]

Wow! I didn’t expect that our city would have much damage Friday night (Sat. morn.) but we sure did. There were shingles off hundreds of houses, roofs off businesses, damage to the monoliths at the Veterans Monument, trees and branches down all over the place. Lots of business for roofers, chainsaws, etc. Glad there were […]

Just a few days ago – Sunday, March 19th, we lost a former Beebe resident and former state Representative – David Choate. He had been fighting a battle with cancer for the past several months. I have so many good memories of David when he was a state Representative. I was a staunch supporter of […]
