I hope you’re having a great week!  Lots of us are trying to start/finish our Christmas shopping. As for me, I haven’t started yet…. Several years ago, back when I was, apparently, loving the stress of last-minute shopping, I would do almost all of my shopping on Christmas Eve. And that’s when the stores close […]

Wow! What a week! This past week was stressful for my family. My sister had to go into the hospital on Tuesday because her blood count was too low. She was in there until the day after Thanksgiving (Fri.) until around 2:30 p.m. She is feeling somewhat better but when you hear what she has […]

This is the week of Thanksgiving! Traditionally – not a big week in our newspaper  because everyone is focused on where they are going or who is coming to their house or what they need to prepare for the gathering. No matter what you plan on doing this Thanksgiving, I hope it is one filled […]

Wow! This has been a busy week or two. I’ve been divided between attending special council meetings and attending all the Veterans Day ceremonies as well as the Fall Festival at Open Arms Assembly of God and the Beebe United Methodist Church Women’s Bazaar.

I hope you had a fun Halloween.  I went to three church functions and then rode for awhile with Beebe Police Cpt. Eddie Cullum. I say “ride” but we actually pretty much just stayed in one or two places as Trick or Treaters went by and Cpt. Eddie gave the kids candy. We were in […]

Today (Tuesday) is my sister’s 2nd chemo treatment. She texted me and told me that her tumor has shrunk from 3.7 cm to 2.8 cm – fantastic news after just one chemo treatment!  We are all very excited about that good news!  Thank you all for the prayers and thanks to those of you who […]

This past Friday, Oct. 2, was my mom’s 88th birthday. I wanted to do something special with her so naturally I thought, “Why not take her to Heber Springs to visit the trout hatchery…!”  Of course, this is something most 88-yr.olds would love to do (ha!) – and my mom was a real sport about […]
