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 […]

I hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend. I attended the ceremony at our Veterans Monument – as I usually do. There were about 30 people present and it was a beautiful day. During the service I usually think about those veterans both alive and passed whom I know/knew – like the late Col. […]

The school year is almost over and even though the temperatures have been unseasonably low – the city swimming pool will open on Memorial Day, Monday May 29th. The kids probably won’t notice that the water temperature is pretty cool. I’m sure in July, we’ll be wishing for these temperatures. I think I mentioned earlier […]

I hope you had a great Mother’s Day and graduation – if you attended. The administration made a gutsy call to go ahead and have graduation outdoors – even though we had a couple of torrential rains during the day. But the bet paid off – and graduation was only dampened by a short mist […]

This Sunday, May 14th is Mother’s Day! I hope you and your family have a great celebration planned to honor your mother/grandmother/aunt or whomever has played that role in your life. I am lucky that my 89 yr. old mother is still in my life. She surprises me almost every day at what she knows, […]

This week all the seniors at Beebe High School are looking at the end of their high school careers. Graduation is May 12th, at 7:30 p.m. at A.S. “Bro” Erwin Stadium. This is one of the nights that I always enjoy. It is really nice to see kids that you remember from when they were […]
