The way it used to be!  Getting your picture in the local newspaper held lots of prestige and I know the parents of these two young artists back in 1981 felt pride when this large picture came out.  My memory is that they were in my Art class when I taught at Searcy High School.  I reviewed some ...
The Raven from 2008 in my backyard?Way back on December 7, 2008 I wrote the following blog.  It was one of my best ones when I was just beginning  blogging.  Click here to read the blog.   It was so sad with such a pleading tone.  My cat had killed Charles Buell's Raven and I was giving a sincere...
I have to ask Anita Hart Fuller whether the audience screamed and fainted when the Searcy Rialto Theater was visited by famous Ricardo Montalban and she attended and GOT HIS AUTOGRAPH on this sheet of paper.  Or did the screaming just start with Elvis and the Beatles?  So I am asking her on this ...
I know, I know, it's progress.  But it is still rather surprising to drive around a street and find several houses missing.  Just gone, like overnight.  This view shows the corner of North Elm and West McRae Street in Searcy AR.  You can see apartments in the background and the parking spaces acr...

 Aerial view photos!We who have been in real estate for many years really appreciate the ease  with which we can obtain photos of our listings.  In Searcy AR we can go to a free courthouse web site called and find out the information about a property.  Not many years ago we had t...
 It is well worth taking a drive (or walk!) down West Race Street and West Center Street, just a few blocks apart, to see these two lovely homes that have been redone with paint and special attention to detail.  I call the top one, located at 610 West Center, the Van Patten home.  It it still in ...
 Absolutely gorgeous young boys.And fairly handsome coaches!It was somewhere in the early 1970's or late 1960's when PeeWee Football was started in Searcy AR.  These young boys are now grown up and professional in so many different fields.  One coach, Rodger Duncan, on the right is still a footba...
