This past Saturday night the Beebe Chamber held their annual awards banquet. I was so proud of our frequent contributor, Melba Brackin, for being chosen as the Ruth L. Couch Lifetime Service recipient. Melba has put so many hours towards community service. She is always trying to make this community a better place to live. […]

We’re getting close to Spring Break for the kids. I think it is week after next. I hope you have your plans set for that time. This weekend Daylight Savings Time begins at 2 a.m. Sunday, March 12th. Most people will set their clocks ahead (spring forward) before they go to bed on Saturday night. This […]

I hope you are having a great week and are feeling well! There seems to be a lot of different viruses and/or flu going around. My family has been hit with a couple of them lately – but thankfully – mother and I have seemed to pretty much dodge the bullet (knock on wood). I […]

I hope you are having a great Valentine’s Day! It’s cold and rainy – but the rest of the week is predicted to be very nice. I hope so! Charlotte is feeling better – not well yet – but better and back at work! Yea! I have not really gotten sick – but had a […]

I hope you are having a great week! Love this sunshine and warm weather today (Tuesday). Sorry for those in Louisiana who had storm damage. Charlotte (my assistant) is out this week with pneumonia. Get well soon, Charlotte. She is such a trooper. She came in to work Monday morning and then went home and […]

This has been a trying Tuesday. We were trying to put the paper together and suddenly – coincidentally, I guess – right when a train was passing my office and blowing the horn – my computer screen suddenly developed lines across it. Just lines. Nothing else. Then, upon examination, I realized that part of my […]

I hope you are having a good week! Can you believe this great weather? I love it! As most of you know, I am now on the Beebe City Council. From time to time, I will write about some of our issues we are dealing with when I believe they need more explanation or just […]

Last week I attended my first Ark. Municipal League conference in Little Rock. It was strange to be at a large conference and it didn’t have anything to do with Ark. Press – as I have attended on several occasions. Anyway, first, it was good to just be doing something different and ready to learn […]

I hope you are having a great week! This past week I needed something at the grocery store and I thought, “Well, I’ll just run in Knight’s and get this.” Well – no, I didn’t. Knight’s closed Dec. 28th. And the store is closed while Edwards Cash Saver makes renovations for the next week or […]

Happy 2017!!!!! Did you have a great New Year’s Eve? I am trying to carve out more time to do reading, studying and just “me” time. That is one of my resolutions. It is very difficult especially when you are being pulled from several different directions. But – I believe if I make me better […]
