Got something to say?
Sometimes you don't hear the bullet...
Warning: This column is going to be very personal, and has been tough for me to write. I mostly stick to the surface these days, for plenty of good reasons, but sometimes I feel that I've been gifted with a certain hard circumstance in order to share it with and encourage others who may feel lost in their struggle. ...
Swinging into a summer full of fun
I don't know how it is possible for things to keep getting more hectic here at the Lendennie Homestead, but of course it is summer and the activity is just off the boards. I have a couple of 4H kids growing things in my garden again this year. One is growing vegetables, the other flowers. I have plenty of space, because I didn't put in a whole lot.

Because it's been too long...
And because I've been really serious up in here for quite a while and frankly my brain and my heart need a break, I present you with...the first Random List of 2016. Welcome back, old friend. -- I am officially now a person who makes smoothies for myself every day. ...

Where are we, and what's next?
Since 2002, not counting the investment Mississippi County made in the Big River Steel Project, the Great River Economic Development Foundation has participated in projects that have created 2,060 jobs. Of those jobs approximately 1,750 are still active. ...
Because we're crazy enough to try...
Today I have done something I absolutely never do, and tried four or five times to get a first sentence on the screen for this column - but I just can't do it the right way. My trusty words are failing me, because you guys...my friends, my readers, my tribe...have blown my mind over the past few weeks...
Surprise: Again, the lesser of two evils
Samuel Adams once said, "If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin." Perception is reality. It might not be fact, but it IS reality. ...
CN Sermon of the Week - Actions and Reactions
Paul has accepted Lydia's invitation to stay a while. He is not just sitting around, in fact he and Silas are apparently teaching daily. They hear a young woman with the ability to tell fortunes keeps shouting: These men are servants of the Most-High God, who proclaim to you a way of salvation!...

Legislative Fiscal Session Report
Serving the people of Mississippi, Poinsett, and Craighead Counties has been a real pleasure, especially in the Arkansas Senate. Our current Fiscal Session has been an example of how political parties can work together for the benefit of the citizens of Arkansas...
