This is such a wonderful job! I wake up every day excited about getting to go to work. Yes, books have always been a passion of mine, but people are what is best! Our library patrons are the sweetest, most loving human beings I have ever encountered. Not only has this library been Linda and Peggy's baby, it's obvious our community members treasure it as well.

Now we can get down to serious politics

posted: 07/27/2016 5 a.m.

We can now rejoice. We have weathered the Republican National Committee's nominating extravaganza and if we can withstand another few days of the Democratic Convention, we can get down to serious politics. Having listened to all the Republican speakers, it will at least be a change of pace to hear what Hillary will do for our nation.

People roaming/running en mass in New York's Central Park at night, people walking out in front of moving cars, and even a pair of northwest Arkansas people driving their car off a second-floor parking garage. Is the Zombie Apocalypse upon us?

Sailing into uncharted political territory

posted: 07/20/2016 5 a.m.

America is about to embark on a journey into an uncharted area of politics. Who knows what tomorrow holds in our search for a new president ? We stand on the threshold of the Republican Party's convention to nominate a candidate to represent that party in search of the highest political office in our nation. Shortly after the Republicans have finished their convention in Cleveland, Ohio, the Democrats will start their convention in Philadelphia, Penn. Hopefully something good will come out of these activities. Other, less recognized political parties can have their convention without all the media fanfare -- hence we learn little about their efforts to make the great American political stage. Regardless there will be no shortage of media attention on politics as we head into the November election.

Why I enjoy reunions

posted: 07/20/2016 5 a.m.

This past week has been full of reunions for our family. On Friday evening we held my wife Nancy's class reunion at the School Heritage Building in downtown Pea Ridge. This was the 1958 graduating class for Pea Ridge High School. I think they are probably the champion class of all years for regularly and unfailingly holding class reunions.
