I hope you had a good Memorial Day holiday! I worked - as I do each year - and part of that is to attend one or more of the veterans ceremonies that are held in the city. Monday morning, I attended a ceremony where five active Air Force personnel were here in town to [...]
I attended graduation last Friday night - as usual. It was a happy time - especially since the weather was nice - but unseasonably cool. I think, as I’m standing there between taking pictures - wondering what the grads are thinking about and where the future will take each of them. Some will have success [...]
This is the big week for the Beebe High School Class of 2014 - graduation is this Friday night at 7:30 p.m. at A.S. “Bro” Erwin stadium. Hope you all can make it. I think all the rain will be gone and it should be a perfect graduation night.
Sad news - I just learned today [...]
Don’t forget that Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 11th!!! If you do - you will pay for it all year if not the rest of your life. But, how could you forget? There are constant reminders on television and probably popping up in your email.
I think I’m gonna get my mom a kitten….ha! No [...]
Well this has been a busy few days. Our hearts go out to those who were affected by the tornado Sunday night. We lost one person here in White County - at El Paso - Paula Blakemore. Our prayers go out to her family and our prayers go out to those in Vilonia who are [...]

Well, this is the week we have the grand opening of the new Goff Public Library. It has been a long time coming but well worth the wait. As I said in my column a few weeks ago, this library has the most impressive interior of any building here in Beebe - that I’ve seen. [...]
I think one of the most interesting and gratifying things about having lots of cats (and I don’t recommend it for most people - 2 to 4 is enough) is watching how they interact with each other. I have one old male cat that I rescued from downtown and he was all scarred up, missing [...]
Well - it’s back to school this week for all the kids. I know the parents are probably happy. Hope you all had a good spring break!
The other day I was watching my mom’s dog, Lil, as she pranced around the door as she waited for my mom to go outside with her. My mom [...]
I had to share a photo of my little pineapple that I’m growing! Isn’t it cute? It’s about 3” wide and about 6” tall. I started it last summer by cutting the top off a store-bought pineapple. I just placed the top in the dirt (did not bury it) and watered it. I had it [...]
