Shannon Bardwell: The evolution of men

Posted 6/20/2010 in Local Columns

There's something different about men now. I've been seeing them in grocery stores. In the Kroger parking lot a man pulled in beside me. He appeared to be alone, then I saw a car seat with a child. As I watched, he entered the grocery store, with child in tow.

Birney Imes: In search of a shade tree mechanic

Posted 6/20/2010 in Local Columns

The other day I got to wondering if there are any shade tree mechanics still around.

Rufus Ward: Choctaw or Chickasaw?

Posted 6/13/2010 in Local Columns

Frequently, someone will show me an arrowhead they have found and ask if it is from the Choctaw or Chickasaw Indians. When I say neither and it's also not an arrowhead, I get real funny looks. To make matters worse, I usually add that the Indians around here did not live in tepees either.

Birney Imes: Don't worry what the neighbors think

Posted 6/13/2010 in Local Columns

Saturday Felder Rushing introduced the crowd at the Hitching Lot Farmers' Market to Don Featherstone.
