Aug 16th, 2017 | By | Category: Opinion

School has begun for the 2017-2018 school year! I hope your younger kids are happy with their teachers – although the Kindergarten children don’t start until Wednesday. I was thinking about the first day of school in my past and I honestly can’t remember any first day except in college. That is strange! And it […]

Yesterday I learned that our Beebe School District Superintendent Dr. Belinda Shook has announced that she will retire at the end of this school year. I was devastated for several reasons but the main two are: first – I think she has been a great superintendent and has our school district in great shape in […]

We’re on the countdown to the start of school – Aug. 14th. Teachers will go back on Aug. 7th. Wow – the summer has passed very quickly for me – but it always does. I know it has for the teachers. I know I said I was going to get my picture (above) redone but I […]

I hope you’re having a great summer! It won’t be long until school starts – Aug. 14th (7th for teachers). My niece, Hannah Musto, is going to have her first Kindergarten class! She has taught 3rd graders for the past 3-4 years (I lose track). She is so excited about having these little ones in […]

I hope you are having a great summer! The heat is on this week and it really feels like July. I am having cataract surgery this week on one of my eyes. The other will be done in a few weeks. I am looking forward to being able to see better. I am still amazed […]

I was so disappointed that our city’s 4th of July celebration had to be cancelled but I totally understand and agree. There was so much rain that it flooded the field where most people would have had to park and also all the rain and lightning made it impossible for the entertainment to use their […]

I hope you had a great 4th of July holiday! It is usually one of my favorite holidays! This year, as I am writing this on Monday, July 3rd, I don’t know what the weather will be like tomorrow. Hopefully it will not interrupt any of our 4th of July plans: parade at Floyd and […]

Last week – for those of you who did not notice – our Page 3 – which contains my column, Sen. Dismang and Rep. Gillam’s columns – was not published with this newspaper. We had, instead, a page from another newspaper – I think the Heber Springs paper. Obviously, it was a mistake by the […]

I hope you are having a good week! I was just looking at the picture above and realizing – “I really need to update my picture!” Simba looks the same but I look pretty different…can’t say better or worse ….but, for sure, different. I’ll see if I can do that before next week’s paper comes […]

This past week many of our Beebe residents paid their final respects to Pfc. Robert Mitchell – MIA Korean War veteran. Mitchell’s body was flown into Little Rock and an escort of police, Patriot Guard riders and military brought him to Beebe where Dewitt Henry Drive was lined with people waving American flags and paying […]
