I'm a huge fan of eating at locally owned spots. I know when I do my money stays in the community. Same with shopping local, farmers markets (where they grow their own), etc.
I went to Desi Den last night. It's an Indian restaurant (India Indian, not American Indian) that opened up where the Greek restaurant, Mongolian grill, Greek restaurant used to be. The food was great, and he said on Friday and weekends they have a buffet. I plan on trying that. Took my sons and we…Continue
Local business struggling to survive slowest winter in 16 years. A small fundraiser has been set up to help in two ways by selling t-shirts. Sales of the shirts will provide funds to go directly to keeping the crew from leaving the company to seek out other employment, thereby keeping the business open.
The shirts themselves are designed to be "company shirts" so that anyone wearing them will be advertising for the company. Also, if anyone doesn't want a shirt but still wants to…Continue

I forgot a very nice lady when we were talking about bakeries last week or so. I have a dear friend, Darcy Howard who bakes once a week in her little outdoor brick oven. She makes all sorts of breads, savory and sweet. If you are interested in getting on her email list every week, email her email@example.com Some of you might know her and her goods from the Farmer's Market in Bryant known as the Little Brick Oven.

I love to put beads into a chain to adorn throats. These are 17" long and on stretch cord. I can custom make anything you need to match your outfit. If you prefer a longer strand(s) or a clasp in the back, I can do that too. The ones pictured are $20 each. Matching earrings are no problem. firstname.lastname@example.org

I can't help but notice that two agencies in Saline County now have nice luxury soccer mom SUV's and it makes me wonder. When did it become about the toys anyway?
Has another inmate died in the jail as of today?
Let's start with Casady vs. Standridge: In this race it is important to also note the obvious powers that be at work. Looks like she is in bed with Pennington and his endorsement pals or the Prosecutor which is it? Or is it all of the above? Mrs. Casady's husband is the prosecutor that will be a part of every case before her with exception to small claims civil cases which is the least amount of her case load. Every time you get a speeding ticket and want to chalenge it in court...I hope…Continue
Mr. Pennington needs just one more term to get a full retirement from the citizens of Saline County. What has he done to earn a continued paycheck on the backs of the taxpayer?
My child was a 9th grade student in the Benton School District at Benton Junior High until he was recently expelled on December 12th for distribution of drugs. He had oral surgery in August and mentioned to another child that he was given pain medication after the surgery but that he did not take it all. That child asked my child to bring him the leftover pills (ten or eleven pills total), and my child did just that. The child he gave the pills to in turn shared them…Continue
I love watching the birds. I put out bird seed like so many do, but I also make my own suet. The birds love it so much more than any suet that you can buy in the store.
In a 5 or 6 qt. dutch oven put 1/2 full of
stale bread, crackers or cereal type products,
soak them in enough water make them mush up.
Add a couple cups or more of old frying oil or meat drippings. The birds LOVE fish fry grease.
Put a couple of eggs in a cup of water…Continue
