DAVIS: The perils and perks of Captain Obvious

March 12, 2012

A great many words have been used to describe people who have various traits. Smart people are described as nerds, geeks or brainiacs. People with various levels of cleanliness skills are called anything from slobs to bums to clean freaks. No matter how we label others, sometimes those very labels come back to bite us in a spot known as the rear, tush or fanny. No matter what you call it, the pain is the same.

HOLLENBECK: Don't count the skinnies out; there are some that are 'magnificent'

March 12, 2012

When I referred to them as a group, it was by the moniker "The Magnificent Seven."
This wasn't a band of American gunmen hired to protect a small agricultural village in Mexico from a group of marauding Mexican bandits. Indeed they bore no resemblance to Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, James Coburn, Robert Vaughn, Brad Dexter, and Horst Buchholz, who portrayed the mighty seven in the movie that was actually a western-style remake based on Akira Kurosawa's 1954 Japanese film "Seven Samurai."
Nope. This was the feline version, but they were indeed magnificent.

Churches Joint Council on Human Needs volunteers focus year-round on helping alleviate hunger in the local area.
As part of the agency's mission, area groups and individuals conduct food drives and fundraising projects throughout the year to help meet this ever-growing need, volunteers say.
There are times, however, when the charitable agencies themselves have needs and this was the case recently with CJCOHN.
The agency's food storage facility was in serious need of renovation and several groups and individuals provided the funding needed to solve this problem, volunteers said.

BENTON – The Lady Panthers did something Saturday that no other Benton High School softball team had completed in a very long time. After getting past Springdale Harber in the first round of the Bootsie Gordon Tournament in Benton, the Lady Panthers beat Dardanelle 6-0 and Nashville 7-0 to advance to the finals against Greenbrier. After a crazy homerun call early in the game, the Lady Panthers prevailed to beat Greenbrier 12-2 to become tournament champions.
