Bauxite Special-Called School Board Meeting an Eye-opener

I hurried to a Bauxite School Board meeting tonight, wondering what was so important that they needed to call a special meeting. Give people a chance to talk in this video, since it is audience comment and questions and a bit disorganized, but what they have to say is important and at times scary. As an outsider, I had several questions myself. Let me get this video posted and I'll come back with some… Continue

A case of shingles.....

At the end of February, I had a case of shingles. For those who don't know what it is, it is an excruciatingly painful ailment that is related to, and can typically follow, chicken pox (which I had when I was 6 years old); affects only one side of the body; and is visibly manifested in the form of blisters.

This hellish thing attacked my right arm (and I'm right-handed, go figure). When the pain first started, I thought it was due to "sleeping wrong" and that maybe I had…

Tip of the month for April

I have been thinking long and hard about what the tip for this month should be. I got this idea earlier today while at work after talking to one of our good citizens at a local restaurant. She told me of how her mother was being scammed by someone overseas and they have taken almost all of her mother’s money. This lady was contacted by someone and they told her that she had won a large sum of money, it was a scam, and they told her in order for her to receive it she needed to send money to get… Continue
