But a couple of them were really good. And a couple of the foreign ones that were about 5 minutes or less were just…Continue

You may have other interests like who is always voting "NO" on your City Council Board. All websites are different and may not have this particular content. I do know…Continue

Oh, yes, I remembered what I had heard earlier.
I was going to pick up my granddaughter from elementary school.…Continue
I am so glad our Saline County police take all crime seriously. Many of our air conditioner units were vandalized for the copper at my church in Mabelvale which lies just inside Pulaski County.
