I'll never forget the first time I wore pantyhose. I felt as if I had been freed from bondage.
This new style evolved from the infamous garter belt used to secure individual stockings or, even before that, garters to hold up the leg coverings.
Pantyhose were the new frontier. Women were ecstatic, and I was the leader of the pack.
I don't recall when all of this occurred, but I do remember the joy with which I embraced the contemporary legwear. And now a lot of women shun them for the barelegged look, which, I'm told, they believe to be more attractive.
It has been an eventful week here in Saline County. We canâ€™t seem to shake a stubborn winter, the Benton boys and girls basketball teams are on historic marches toward the state playoffs, and real progress is being made on the worthwhile Saline Crossing Regional Park effort.
It is also worth pointing out that Wednesdayâ€™s edition of the Courier was 100 percent local. It was our first in a while, but certainly wonâ€™t be our last. The newsroomâ€™s efforts to drive more local content into our pages are paying off, and our readers will certainly see that moving forward.
Sunday is a day of rest. Itâ€™s the last day of the weekend. According to the Bible, itâ€™s the day that God took time off from his creation and it was good.
Itâ€™s a day of worship, relaxation, recharging, family and friends. By its very nature, Sunday is different than the other days of the week.
So, shouldnâ€™t your newspaper be different on Sunday also? The answer is â€¦ yes.
During the coming weeks, watch for changes in the Sunday edition of the Saline Courier. A few of the changes are already in place today.
