Does anyone know what's going in next to Captain D's? Please don't say fried chicken or BBQ. :)
Somebody just reminded me that I took pictures this weekend of the cute Victorian building that houses Webb's House of Flowers being dismantled by Doyle Webb himself and family. I regret that I only did a "drive-by shooting" to get these pics. I'd have like to say hello to folks and get a comment on what's happening. Click to this post and scroll down in the comments for some…Continue

Girls get to do this. Boys don't - well not usually. I changed my name. I've been divorced for over 3 years and I'm not officially a Russell anymore. Some people said to keep the name so it's the same as the children's names. But I don't see how that would make a difference. I've posted the entire discussion below that I held on my personal Facebook page about this matter.
People brought up good points for and against changing…Continue
I couldn't be more disappointed in this city than I am right now. I have lived most of my life here and is seems when we have something good there is always those who just can't do it right. I have lived in Little Rock and in Little Rock they have the recycling in conjunction with the trash pick-up. both, billed together and not anywhere NEAR as expensive as they had introduced to Benton residents about a year or so ago for curb side retrieval. But they opted for the large bins and this, to…Continue

Nearly a year ago, MySaline made it a rule that members need to have their first and last names as their username. We did this because people were not playing nice under the guise of an anonymous name. It generated a lot of talk when people weren't nice, but not the kind of talk…Continue

Boy, the great outdoors! There is truly nothing like getting right out there with Mother Nature to take the nervous edge off our lives - right? Well, maybe not so much.
It'd be a safe bet that nearly every Arkansan has at least one fishing-related story to tell. Some good, some bad, some to be taken with a grain of salt.
I started fishing as a young child when my grandpa Irvin F. Powell had 128 acres in Gravel Ridge that we all just called "The Farm". He didn't live there. …Continue
