READ TO ME: Grumpy bear doesn’t enjoy rain — or sun

Category: آرکانساس Comments: No comments

TITLE: “Soaked!”

BY: Abi Cushman (Viking Books for Young Readers, July 14), ages 3 to 7, 40 pages, $17.99 hardcover.

STORY: Bear is a gloomy bear who wants us to know that being wet is no fun, not for Bear, not for any of Bear’s friends, not even though they might appear to be surreptitiously frolicking with things Bear has dismissed as ruined by the rain.

Bear is drenched. Bear’s umbrella is missing.

When everyone troops into Bear’s cave, it’s too small to accommodate the Hula-Hooping Moose.

Bear decides to go back outside, sit on a log and wallow (figuratively) in misery. The other animals appear to go along, but they don’t look exactly miserable. Moose is having a blast. Rabbit has adopted Bear’s cashmere sweater; Badger has slurped up the remains of Bear’s ice cream …

When the Hula-H...

RICHARD MASON: Fish story needs no exaggeration

Category: آرکانساس Comments: No comments

I’ve had a few folks question some of my tales about growing up in south Arkansas, and I have seen some heads shaking in disbelief. But this story and those tales aren’t fiction. They are as close as I can remember to being exactly as they happened.

During my high school years, Buddy Henley and I were hunting and fishing buddies, and whatever season it was, hunting or fishing, we were doing one or the other every weekend, and even after school.

It was early June when school was out and the lakes, creeks, and river were full of spring rain water. This trip was an overnighter to Buddy’s folks’ cabin on the Ouachita River where we would set trot lines and fish in the river and in Bangs Slough. The cabin wasn’t luxurious, but for 15- and 17-year-old boys, it was just perfect.

The cabin was u...

TOM DILLARD: A surefooted climb up the corporate ladder

Category: آرکانساس Comments: No comments

Let me introduce you to Miss Dorothy Shaver. This amazing woman was the first female in American history to manage a large corporation.

Shaver was born July 29, 1893, to Sallie Borden and James D. Shaver in the small Howard County settlement of Center Point. Her mother was the granddaughter of Benjamin Borden, editor of the Arkansas Gazette, while her paternal grandfather was Robert G. Shaver, a prominent Confederate commander and a leader of the post-Civil War Ku Klux Klan. Dorothy’s father was a well-regarded lawyer.

James Shaver took his family to the new railroad town of Mena in Polk County when Dorothy was 5 years old. Her father would later become a chancery judge and was active in local affairs, including serving as president of the Mena School Board.

Dorothy was a good student, g...

EDITORIAL: With an assist by …

Some folks on social media, and some of our friends in the broadcast ranks, are a bit confused about what’s going on in Portland and what’s going on in, say, Chicago or Detroit.

There are two very different operations being conducted by the federal government in several large cities. What’s in common is that both involve folks with badges and uniforms. That’s about where it ends.

In Portland, officials in the city and the state of Oregon have been unable, or unwilling, to police their own. Protesters have not only vandalized, but tried to burn down, federal property there, including a rather large federal courthouse.

So the Trump administration, specifically the Department of Homeland Security, sent its police force to Portland to keep the arsonists at bay...

Wilford Brimley, ‘Cocoon’ and ‘Natural’ actor, dies at 85

Category: آرکانساس Comments: No comments

LOS ANGELES — Wilford Brimley, who worked his way up from movie stunt rider to an indelible character actor who brought gruff charm, and sometimes menace, to a range of films that included “Cocoon,” “The Natural” and “The Firm,” has died. He was 85.

Brimley’s manager Lynda Bensky said the actor died Saturday morning in a Utah hospital. He was on dialysis and had several medical ailments, she said.

The mustached Brimley was a familiar face for a number of roles, often playing characters like his grizzled baseball manager in “The Natural” opposite Robert Redford’s bad-luck phenomenon. He also worked with Redford in “Brubaker” and “The Electric Horseman.”

Brimley’s best-known work was in “Cocoon,” in which he was part of a group of seniors who discover an alien...

A fun week of mystery plant, with lots of input

Category: آرکانساس Comments: No comments

Many have been asking me where I get the pictures for the mystery plants. Some I take in my weekly visits to gardens, others are sent to me by friends or readers wanting to know what they are, and others are now sending me ideas for the mystery plant challenge. I love all the input in trying to name the plants. Keep your ideas and pictures coming! We all learn something new. Here are your plants for the week:

Rudbeckia laciniate – Cutleaf Coneflower or Golden Glow. Golden Glow is a double flowered variety with large yellow flowers. The flowers look more like a chrysanthemum bloom

than a black-eyed Susan, which is what most people think of when they hear Rudbeckia.

This perennial plant grows tall—5 to 6 feet or more, and it can spread aggressively, especially in good soil...
