What’s Left?

Sep 26th, 2013 | By admin | Category: Opinion

I was sitting in church last Sunday and looking around at all the people that I know and have been going to church with for many years and some for only a few years. They are kind of like family in that you know them pretty well. It’s a nice feeling but you hurt [...]

As I was working on the newspaper today, I was reflecting on how much easier things are to prepare today - vs. in years past. I am talking about using the internet and email and how you can “magically” have an ad made up in another state and it will suddenly appear when you have [...]

The other day I was looking through some old issues of the paper - actually looking at about 15 years by looking at the last paper of the year featuring the “Year in Review.” (Although one of the years I forgot to put in the Year in Review in the last issue and it had [...]

Well - it’s here! Football season!  I know it means a lot to many of you - Razorbacks, Badgers and Pee Wee - just lots of things to do on the weekends!  And there is supposed to be a drop in the temperatures of a degree or two. That will make it even nicer. I [...]

I was looking at one of those “here’s what we’re celebrating” calendars the other day and here are a few of the things we just passed or are coming up this next week:
International Bat Night, Aug. 24-Aug. 25th
Be Kind to Humankind Week, Aug. 25-Aug. 31; National Safe at Home Week, Aug. 26-Aug. 30; National Championship [...]

I’ve been thinking lately about the pros and cons of Facebook. I joined it a year or so ago and then didn’t like it and quit. And - it took quite a bit to get deleted. But, I had lots of family members who said, “Did you see my pictures from _____?” And I would [...]

I’ve been thinking I need to write a book - or series of books - about the interaction of my cats with each other. It is so funny and sometimes complex. One day you see two cats being great friends - napping together, cleaning each other - and the next day they have moved on [...]

I don’t know which I dislike most - 100-degree temps (like last summer) or tropical rainstorms almost every afternoon. Yes - I understand that we probably needed the rain - but it’s hard to keep the grass mowed - since it grows about 2” every afternoon. I guess we need to look at it like [...]

I hope you’re having a great end of summer!  Well - this week is a pretty big week here in Beebe. Our Walmart is opening this Friday morning. It will be a big deal for most families living here and it has been long-awaited, as we have watched the construction for the past several months. [...]

Recently I’ve been looking around at all the “stuff” I have and wondering why I bought it or why someone gave it to me. We all have so much “stuff” that we don’t need but some of it we focus on and even obsess over. I was watching “Antiques Roadshow” on PBS tonight and got [...]
