Keeping up with social media

posted: 02/26/2014 5 a.m.

Quite often I receive an invitation to sign up with a social media site as a means of keeping in touch with friends and family or vocational colleagues. It used to be invitations to MySpace, but that one has seemingly lost out to others like Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram. Oh, I'm about to forget about Twitter. So far I have been very hesitant to join the chorus of social media devotees, but ever so often I wonder if I need to rethink my reluctance. From time to time, I think I may be missing out on something good, or that I am just being an old fogey and stubborn about changing old habits and old-fashioned ways.

For books are not absolutely dead things, but he who destroys a good book, kills Reason itself, kills the Image of God, as it were in the eye. Many a man lives a burden to the Earth; but a good Book is the precious life-blood of a master-spirit, embalmed and treasured up on purpose to a life beyond life.

After many well needed years of annoying the older siblings and using youthful innocence as an excuse to disregard any restrictions from parental figures, the time inevitably comes where the teenage years begin to disintegrate and form into something less beseeching: Adulthood. Becoming a responsible adult requires more than masticating an appetizing plate of proportional veggies and meats. It entails time to seek responsibility for the possibility of leisurely living.

For the past several years, the Arkansas Razorbacks basketball has had a rather poor conference record in road games, as in 2-18 in the SEC in the three seasons since Mike Anderson took over a moribund program that had fallen a long way since the glories of the 1990s. The two road wins were both against a really lousy Auburn team that couldn t beat anyone.

Evaluating county and city voters' opinions

posted: 02/12/2014 5 a.m.

By the time this article is published, we should know the outcome of an election concerning rural Benton County ambulance service. Hopefully a majority of the eligible voters will have given us a true expression of their feelings on the issue. In my opinion, this is not about paying for ambulance service, but who and how you pay. An increase in the fire dues to the Pea Ridge Fire Department is not offensive to me, but being part of a fee structure that supports the excesses of Siloam Springs to the tune of $1,000 per run is a problem.

Basketball is a changed game!

posted: 02/12/2014 5 a.m.

I watched the Razorbacks basketball game with Alabama at home at Fayetteville on Wednesday night, Feb. 5. It reminded me of how the game of basketball can be such a mysterious and frustrating game. The Razorbacks ended up winning the game by 7 points, but not because they played a great game. It seemed that everyone on both teams was having an off night, except for one or two players on each team. For the Razorbacks, Bobby Portis scored 35 points, and all the other guys together scored 30 points. The guys who usually do well, like Madden and Clarke and Qualls, couldn t hit the broad side of a barn last night! I m often amazed with the Razorbacks, that at times when they are up against a great team, like Kentucky, they can do well; but when they are up against a mediocre team, like Alabama last night, they can hardly do anything right. Luckily for the Razorbacks, most of the Crimson Tide couldn t hit the broad side of a barn either. But, our Bobby Portis was having a hot night while most everybody else was cold and off!

We live on Don McAllister Road, just north of Pea Ridge in Benton County. Several years ago someone came by and asked if they could park their grader on our property so they would not have to load and unload the equipment every day and drive it all the way back. This allowed them to spend more time grading the roads. We OK d it and for years it was parked there and the roads on this side on town were graded real good and not just skimmed over the top.

This will be the last article I can submit to The Times before the Feb. 11 election concerning the establishment of a rural Emergency Medical Services District No. 2 (EMSDNo. 2) and collecting an $85 per residence fee to pay for the cities to provide ambulance service to it. This is being referred to the voters in the affected area as a result of a referendum petition by those who feel the quorum court should have put it to a vote of the people in the first place.

Aren t you happy that the library finally expanded their hours only to be closed due to the snow and ice? Like most of you, I am so ready for sunshine and warmer temperatures remind me of this statement in July and August when I am complaining about the heat and humidity!

When conveniences become inconvenient

posted: 02/05/2014 5 a.m.

We live with many conveniences today, more than we commonly appreciate. Conveniences easily come to be taken for granted. We just assume they are there for us, and if circumstances take a turn to deny us those conveniences, we get upset. I think phones have come to be like that. We just assume that when we pick up the handset, it will work, whether it is the wired house phone or the wireless cell phone. But there have always been outages of various sorts.
