HOLLENBECK: Celebrating the wearin’ o’ the green year after year

March 21, 2011

Let’s just say this is better late than never, and I’m referring to St. Patrick’s Day. Hope everyone had a happy holiday.
Because of other obligations, the regular group I’m a part of that has been attending the St. Paddy’s Day parade in Hot Springs didn’t get to be there this year.
That was a disappointment, but if you’re Irish — really Irish — you have to have fun on the holiday wherever you can find it.

BRENT DAVIS/Resident Boomer: What do you kids do for fun these days?

March 21, 2011

It can be eerie when things happen in succession that were completely unrelated but share a common thread. For example, I am always looking for material to write about so I asked my bride “What did you do for fun as a kid growing up in Ohio?” She pondered for a moment and responded “We rode our bikes, had sleepovers with friends and played in the crick.” She immediately noticed my inquisitive puppy head tilt and said “What?” I responded “Crick? Like creek?” Giving me the now familiar DA facial expression, she said “Yes. Have you not heard that word before? That’s what we called it in Ohio.”

HOLLENBECK: 'Thank you for sinning at my wedding'

March 13, 2011

I was bitten by the performing bug early in life and never recovered from the experience.
While many shy away from taking center stage for whatever the show may entail, I confess I’ve always enjoyed it. It started when I was about 3 and was in what was called a Tom Thumb wedding.

BRENT DAVIS/Resident Boomer: Missing the Mom & Pop stores

March 13, 2011

In my garage is a small wooden stool. It has been in my family for generations. At the present time, it is in need of repair. One of the four legs on the stool is broken and every attempt will be made to splice the two pieces together. It isn’t painted. It isn’t varnished. It is a plain wooden stool, nothing out of the ordinary if you just look at it. But what makes it extraordinary is not the simple fact of its existence; it’s the thread to the past it symbolizes.

GUEST COLUMN/Everette Hatcher: Could lightning strike twice for UALR in NCAA Big Dance?

March 13, 2011

Coach Mike Newell in the 1986 NCAA Basketball Tournament led his 14th-seeded University of Arkansas at Little Rock Trojans to a 90-83 victory over the No. 3-seeded Notre Dame Fighting Irish coached by Digger Phelps, who is now a college basketball analyst for ESPN.
Next, the Trojans took the North Carolina State Wolfpack, coached by Jim Valvano, to double overtime before eventually being eliminated from the tournament.
