Deep love for baseball
One of our county’s biggest assets, I believe, is the countywide Dizzy Dean baseball and softball league.
It brings youngsters and their parents together from across the county and also includes Hickory Flat from our neighboring Benton County.

Smile or be ‘thunked!’
• Sometimes, I am amazed at the things (people) you encounter at Walmart — any Walmart, not just our local one.
If you’ve ever looked at Facebook or gotten one of those silly emails “People of Walmart,” you know what I’m talking about.
I had a people of Walmart experience of my own this past Friday.

Memaw’s advice works - ‘just spray them’
A few weeks ago, my Memaw and I were touring the backyard. We had been on the back porch enjoying the evening and a glass of tea when Memaw suggested we take a walk around the yard to see what all was in bloom.
Mind you, this was just a few weeks ago, and the azaleas were alive and well; they were the main beauty I wanted to see.
Diatribe against TV commercials
I hardly know how to begin. I am so deeply and snarlingly irritated with television and the excessive noise that accompanies every news segment that I could chew nails. CNN is my target presently as every tiny bit of news is preceded by loud drumbeats, deafening music of some kind, these little tinkling bells that accompany every soundbite and just general noise! I expect they think they have to engage the attention of these 20s and 30s who are so attached to their various cell phones, I-pods, Bluetooth and all these other electronic devices which seem unnecessary to me. Too, these young’uns have had their stereos turned up to scream for so many years they are now mostly deaf, hence, all the very excessive TV noise of various kinds so they can hear what’s happening.

School is out and the long-awaited summer vacation is upon us. Your children have worked hard all school year and they deserve to rest.
However, you don’t want them to lose the knowledge they gained in the previous grade. When children return to school in August, the teacher for this next grade will move quickly into new material that builds upon what your child learned last school year. Therefore, students start off behind if they have forgotten key skills and concepts from the year before. So give your children a leg up on the next grade by keeping them academically sharp this summer using three tips:
