What’s Left?

Sep 20th, 2017 | By | Category: Opinion

For the past two nights – Sunday and Monday – I’ve been watching the beginnings of the 10-part PBS Ken Burns documentary “The Vietnam War.” I love the documentaries that Ken Burns has produced over the years and have watched most of them. This one hits closer to home in that when the U.S. became […]

The weather has been crazy around the U.S. these past few days and weeks! Fires in the NW and Hurricanes in the SW and SE – Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. My ex lives near Orlando and he had two trees fall on his house. Luckily, they were not huge trees and he said they […]

I feel so sorry for all those in Houston and surrounding area that have been devastated by the flood waters of Hurricane Harvey. It will be years before all the destruction will be cleaned up and rebuilt. I pray for those people who do not have flood insurance and even if they do – there […]

Sometimes – doing something you don’t want to do – is a blessing! Back a year or so ago, as my sister was recovering from breast cancer and a near-fatal car accident, I was out at her house helping out. They had to buy a new vacuum because the old one had bit the dust […]

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.

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 […]
