I don't care if anyone one of you has any problems with anyone at The Saline Courier (aka Benton Courier), myself included, we are all humans and I hope you can set aside any reason you have to be upset at us for just a moment. 

I ask that you add Lynda Hollenback and her family to your prayers & prayer list. Unfortunately, her husband is close to leaving this world behind. I think the absolute world of Lynda and if you ever had the chance to either sit back and talk to…

I could get real in-depth and rehash things that people already know about newspaper reporters, but I'll keep it short for the sake of time.

Often we, as reporters, are the target of criticism because we report things about public officials or others in the public eye to the citizens in our communities. We report the good things that they do or plan to do, but it is often the negative things that people discuss more and remember years later. I don't think that people really… Continue

Child care

My wife is hoping/planning to start back school very soon, which poses this question - Where is the best, inexpensive (I know unfortunately it is probably all high dollar) place in Saline County for child day care? Our little girl is 9-months old - today as a matter of fact!

I see.....

I'm on here less than a day and you are already threatening me?? I think I should lodge a complaint with Shelli already. :) The Courier's secrets are safe with me..... for now.

My friend and I were extras in the crowd. Look for me in a white shirt close to the stage, BANGIN MY HEAD! Now that's acting, because Tia Carrere couldn't play bass and they shot that little section we were in about 12 times. Now that there are widescreen versions available, you can see more head bangage. My paycheck listed me as "Rocker Babe." I got $100 and 2 meals.

Fred was a piece of work. He controlled the market until B98 started, we then had a choice.

I used to dj too. 2 years at KABF 4 years at KSSN and a year at a station that kept changing formats (they still do it now)! KDRE/K-HITS/Z-101. I left radio for tv news, then tv producing. Have I done it all in media? I'm getting there. I was in a film (Wayne's World), have hosted a tv show, and obviously now am attempting to proliferate my Internet presence. Ohyeah, I also like to doodle!

That's where I heard you. I grew up in Ft Smith and go back there frequently on business. I listened to KISR 93 in High School but they have stayed with their market (young) and I got old. :D I wonder if Fred Baker is still running that place.
