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.

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 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 […]
