I’ve just started reading a book which has some local connections. The book is “Chasing Phil” by David Howard. It is a true-crime thriller about the FBI’s first white-collar undercover sting operation during the ‘70’s. The local connection is Myron Fuller – who is from Beebe and spent many years with the FBI and headed […]

I believe all the recent shootings need to bring more attention on the status of mental health in America.

Today (Tues.) is Halloween. Tonight I get to visit several Fall Festivals around this area. It’s always lots of fun seeing all the kids and their cute costumes.
