Got something to say?
Welcome to Arkansas; enjoy the weather
So, uh, how about that weather, huh? Crazy, right? The answer is yes, it is crazy. But it's not just the massive amounts of ice and snow that fell that made the weather so odd or the way it seemed to cling for its life to the streets.
It's time for the big thaw if you ask me
Along with everybody else around here, I've had enough cold, nasty precipitation to last a lifetime. It might be a little better if we had the infrastructure around here to handle it (like a few snowplows and somebody with sense enough to operate them).
Jabs just beginning for local politicians
One of the requirements for public office is to be a glutton for punishment.
Epic experience at latest half-marathon
The Little Rock Marathon/Half-Marathon is billed as "Arkansas' Race for any Pace." The theme for this year's event, which was held Sunday morning, was "Epic" -- a fitting theme, considering the race was run as a winter storm descended on the region.
This is supposed to be gardening season
Well the weather has officially gone crazy. I am sitting here in my office as I write this watching the ice storm and listening to the rolling thunder. And reminding myself that I live in Arkansas.
It's true: Everything old is new again
When I was a kid, I remember being told that most trends in life were cyclical. From music to fashion to TV shows, people would say, "Just give it a few years and that will be cool again."
For the life of me, I cannot understand why people will buy, take or steal a dog and then tie it up with whatever is available.
Baseball helps Dear Sweet Sainted Wife sleep
Never known for her deftness of step, My Dear Sweet Sainted Wife managed to trip over her own feet Tuesday night and conk her head on the door jam of the bedroom closet.
St. Jude a beacon of hope for kids, families
Imagine taking your child for a routine checkup and learning he or she has cancer. As a parent of young children, I can't think of a more devastating report.
