Frankly speaking...

I am more comfortable helping to supply news coverage for local happenings than helping put them on. However, my helping Raul Blasini of Pocahontas organize the Lawrence County Health Fair was a positive and educational experience. It is hard to tell Raul 'no,' and everyone we contacted was willing to help in any way possible. Thanks to all for supporting this event. One of the healthiest and most senior participants at the Fair was Alene Grissom, age 92, of Hoxie.

Community spirit is alive and well in Walnut Ridge and Hoxie. The Downtown Walnut Ridge group continues to have energy and excitement. Thursday's window display workshop, put on by Main Street Arkansas, offered many great ideas and information to help local retailers.

Karen Williams and other organizers of Dickens in the Park set for Dec. 6 are working hard to come up with creative ideas for this new event. Our communities and others are also gearing up for parades, concerts and other holiday events.

The few times I have had occasion to visit the Walnut Ridge Head Start center have left me impressed with the staff, volunteers, facility and the students. The center offers a great learning environment for children. The staff members are professionals, and the volunteers are nurturing the children in a way that will have lifelong positive influence. See page 1B for a look at the special events held there recently.

With so many signs of economic troubles in our world, there is still probably no better remedy for us than to take time to be thankful for the blessings that we have. With the coming of Thanksgiving Day, there is no better time to count our blessings as individuals, a community or nation than now. Church and community Thanksgiving services are one way we can pause to do just that.
