Grandparents' corner

Sage West, two, is the daughter of Daniel and Rohni West of Jonesboro.

Grandparents are Ronnie and Pam Williams of Bono and David and Linda West of Cotter.

She is the great-granddaughter of Carolyn Williams of Alicia and Doris Phillips of Walnut Ridge.


Miles and Catherine Ponder of Walnut Ridge have again been recognized for their noteworthy experience of being stationed at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, when it was bombed on Dec. 7, 1941. They were invited to share their experiences at an event Friday morning at the Lausanne Collegiate School in Memphis, where their great-granddaughter, Simone Brasher, is a 10th-grade student.

The Ponders were videoed for the school's project called The World War II Oral History Project. Simone helped with the interview. A DVD of the interview will be sent to the "Veteran's History Project," a division of the National Library of Congress. Mrs. Ponder said Lausanne is the only high school in the U.S. that does this. They will also receive a copy of the DVD.

Gary Witt, program director for the school's World War II Oral History Project, said that Catherine is the first civilian he's met who was in the Pearl Harbor area on Dec. 7.

The Ponders also attended an event at the school on Thursday night to honor veterans.

The Ponders will mark their 70th wedding anniversary at the Old Walnut Ridge Baptist Church on Nov. 27 from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. They were married on Nov. 8, 1940, in Pensacola, Fla. continued...
