One day is more than enough

This is my last column before Christmas, and I figure there may be some folks out there still wondering if I really am a Scrooge.

I think it’s time to engage in one of my favorite Christmas pastimes, which is to recall three of my all time favorite Christmas experiences.

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor:
Citizens of Forrest City. You are being scammed by your own Forrest City City Council. It was with chagrin and dismay that I found on Nov. 18, that the city council voted to give themselves a $1,000 bonus.

It’s that time — again

Some folks may notice that I don’t complain a lot about next week’s holiday. The most obvious reason is that, since Thanksgiving comes on Thursday, I don’t have to write a column.

My Baby is sick! Help!

I’m in a very distressed mood today. My computer is sick; so sick in fact that I’m having to take it to the hospital. I hope I don’t end up having to put it down. I’ve become quite attached to it.

Waiting by the phone

I’m glad to see all the activities that are going on for Halloween. It’s a good time to have special, safe activities for kids. Actually, that’s nothing new.
