ALMA HAHN: Religious relics or no, Christ requires faith

April 25, 2011

I trust all of you have had your fill of boiled and candy eggs and have your house somewhat back in order from this Easter weekend.

HOLLENBECK: Traditional cooler weather arrives to welcome Easter holiday

April 25, 2011

Cooler weather moved into Arkansas a few days ago, which isn’t surprising.

BRENT DAVIS/Resident Boomer: In memory of longtime friend Bill Glenn

April 22, 2011

It’s been said that we are six people away from being connected to each other.

HOLLENBECK: Remininiscing on fashion, footwear, fun from past

April 21, 2011

People of a certain age share memories of special things that the current generation has little or no knowledge of. Nor, it seems, do they want to.
(Yes, I know I ended two sentences with a preposition. Not good writing style, but nothing else said it the same way.)
Case in point: Teenage interests of my generation compared to those of my grandchildren. The two are light years apart.

ALMA HAHN: Opening up the history of the umbrella

April 18, 2011

Our subject for today’s column is Brolliology.

HOLLENBECK: Take away everything else, but keep the green beans coming

April 11, 2011

My kitchen successes can be counted on my two hands with a couple of digits to spare, but among them is the green bean casserole I’ve prepared for many, many years. There may be a glorious repast including traditional and exotic dishes, but if I don’t serve that casserole at Thanksgiving and Christmas, it causes bad feelings among some members of my family.

ALMA HAHN: ‘Can opener’ P-38 airplane was one my father missed

April 11, 2011

My father never looked or acted like a daredevil, but in his younger life, he definitely was. Barely reaching the 5’ 2” mark on the height chart, and wearing a size 5.5 shoe, he barely met the Army’s size requirements.

DAVIS: Those sneaky infomercials

April 11, 2011

Spring is a time when folks decide to clean up, spruce up and fix up around the house. It’s a time of re-birth of sorts. We venture out into the sunlight, our eyes squinting at the bright sunlight. But once our pupils adjust we see the list of projects growing. Such is life.

ALMA HAHN: ‘Leaving zoo reptile house; it makes my skin crawl’

April 4, 2011

Did you follow the adventure of the young Egyptian cobra that apparently slithered out of her confines at the Bronx Zoo? As I write this column, CNN is reporting that she has decided to make her reappearance.
Until a few minutes ago (on Thursday), she had not been seen since Friday, March 25. Zoo officials kept assuring the public that everything was OK; she would come out from wherever she was hiding when she got hungry. No word yet on where she spent her “vacation.”

BRENT DAVIS/Resident Boomer: There’s a time machine under mom’s house

April 4, 2011

Jules Vern imagined a wildly elaborate machine. Physicists theorize with numbers. Engineers tinker with plans. They each may have taken a different approach to the same quest but they all shared the same result. Nothing. Zilch. Zero. Nada. The problem was that they were looking in the wrong place. But I know where to find what they all seek.
