This is the week of my favorite holiday - 4th of July! I have loved it since I was a little girl and I guess it would have to be because, not, unfortunately because of the deeper meaning of our country’s independence, but for me it is the fireworks, swimming and just family get-togethers. Sure, [...]
We have officially passed the mark of “Summer Begins - June 21st - also longest day of the year” and now we are on the downhill slide back to winter. Now that was a pessimistic view. Let me rephrase that. We are now in the fantastic, sun-filled days of summer! Better?! Well, that is where [...]
I hope you’re having a good summer! The other day, a friend sent me this funny, “You know you’re a Redneck when”…. story. (author unknown) Here it is:
1. You take your dog for a walk and you both use the same tree.
2. You can entertain yourself for more than 15 minutes with a fly swatter.
This past Saturday my dad’s sister, Aunt Mary, passed away. She was 95 years young. As a young girl, I spent many days during the summer with my grandmother and my Aunt Mary in Clinton, AR. Back then, I lived in North Little Rock and found life in a small town very different from my [...]
Well, I guess summer is officially here - at least if you go by when school is out. Our kids spent their last day at school last Friday.
Our city pool will be open next Monday, June 8th. I know that is a fun thing for kids around here. The hours are: Sunday, Monday and Friday, [...]
I hope you had a good Memorial Day! I was thinking about our debt to all of the veterans that have passed and those that are still serving our country as I attended two services here in Beebe Monday. Of course, we think about those heroes who saw combat in various wars but I also [...]

This Friday night is the BHS Class of 2015 graduation - starts at 7:30 p.m. at Bro. Erwin Stadium. Congratulations to the graduates! I hope that your memory of your time in Beebe - if you are going somewhere else - will be a pleasant one. Work hard and take advantage of your opportunities! You [...]
When I was thinking about what to write about for this week, I thought, sure - I’ll write about Mother’s Day (it’s this Sunday)! But, I decided it would be more interesting to see what I wrote about in this column a few years back. I went to May 11, 2006 and here is what [...]
I had an unusual experience last Sunday. When I came home from church there was a baby armadillo at my side door. It was trying to burrow into a hay bale I had sitting there for my cats to sun themselves on. The baby was so cute. It was about 6” long and if you’ve [...]
