As usual, this past Monday there was a great Veterans Day ceremony at Beebe Veterans Monument. The ceremony was performed by Garner Bros. American Legion Post 91 - as in recent years - and they did a great job. The Beebe High School band really added a lot to the program and played some very [...]

Last Tuesday night, October 29th, (I’m writing this Monday night, Nov. 4th) I had the pleasure of first attending the open house at ASU-Beebe art gallery which featured three Beebe artists’ work. It was the first time I had seen the renovated old science building which has been transformed into the art department which includes [...]

Well, when the paper comes out - it will be Halloween. I don’t really celebrate Halloween per se - but I do enjoy seeing everyone in costume - when they’re not scary. I like the little cartoon characters costumes like Tweedy Bird and Sylvester, etc. I am not really into the actual scary stuff. But [...]

Wow!  It really feels like Fall with these cool temperatures.  I’m glad we got Homecoming out of the way before the cool spell came in.

This past week - Friday and Saturday - I was struck by the way so many people in this city care about each other. Friday I went to the Sunshine Rodeo at  Brewer  Farms. It was a beautiful day full of horses, clowns, food and just a fun time for kids who have special needs [...]

It’s 11:37 Washington D.C. time - and I’m watching CSPAN2 and feeling sick as I watch our bureaucrats stand around and talk as our government is about to shut down. It literaily makes me sick. These legislators need to feel the pain of the people they are hurting. I say, “Throw all of them out [...]

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 [...]
