COLD WATER CAN BE DANGEROUS FOR UNPREPARED BOATERS

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Memorial Day weekend is almost here and many folks will be hitching up their boats and heading for the water.  But the Army Corps of Engineers advises boaters to first take some precautions.

Check out and service your trailer, boat, motor and other equipment.  After a winter of storage, this is a must.

Once you’re on the water, remember, warm spring days can be misleading.  The water is still very cold. If you fall from your boat, or your boat capsizes, you’re in for a shock, especially if you’re not wearing a life jacket.

Upon the initial plunge, the cold water takes your breath away.  Your muscles tense, and you may get painful cramps. With a life jacket, you can stay afloat and stay alive.  Without one, you may not be able to swim at all.

The Corps urges boaters to always wear a life jacket.  It is especially important this time of year when the water is deceptively cold. Remember, life jacket worn, nobody mourns.

Harter House Grocery Store Honored by Associated Wholesale Grocers

Since April of 2017 we have  noticed the changes going on in the new Harter House grocery store.  Each day held a new surprise with a larger selection and a wider variety of grocery items.  The employees were always friendly but their faces had bigger smiles.  Some were gone on to other challenges but the new ones were alive with energy. They seemed eager to answer questions and share their enthusiasm for what they were doing. The owner, Brad Bettlach was everywhere.  His excitement made shopping a meaningful experience. His smile and hearty handshake created friendships easily.  New meat show cases tempted shoppers to try new things along with new frozen food show cases.  It has been a year now but the same happy and purposeful employees are making shopping a fun experience.  Brad Bettlach has earned the  respect of his employees as a patient, involved,  and knowledgeable owner .  The Shell Knob community has recognized Brad, his wife Angela, and children as a welcome addition to the community.

Weather effects GOOD!

You could hear a pin drop down here on the Plaza !  It is 4 pm and it is deathly quiet. I’ve talked to a couple of people who say they are coming down with /or already have a migraine headache. You know what that means. . .barometric pressure is building. Women know what that means. Da Da Dum Dum. Speak softly, and forget the big stick because she can kill with a look! She has a complete loss of patience with loud noises, she is needing a quiet time out, and “do Not Let That Screen Door Slam!’ is another signal! 
I have never seen a man with this sort of thing. If anything they can cause one without even trying. Women are the victims of it. It creeps up the back of their neck and plants itself right in the middle of their forehead. It is rumored that several men who didn’t pick up on the clues later ended up in the garbage can out in front of the house for 24 hours. 

It is 4:30 pm, time to close down, and quietly cross the bridge heading home. Those of you with the headache I will gladly send over some caffeine.  But if you are the one causing the headache I will gladly pray for your poor soul.

April 27-29, 2018-Weekend Report from Shell Knob Missouri

We had another wonderful weekend in Shell Knob. Between fishing tournaments, garage sales, Shrine Lady 
Shopping, and plant sales the town was rocking! The Dogwood Trail garden club started early on Friday and had the VFW facility north of town loaded with flowers, planters, and tons of every day items that were clean and ready to use. Shoppers were out on the Plaza as several merchants had put out large signs and specific items for sale. Tickets for the Play sold rapidly and nothing but kudos for the performers at all three performances. Local eateries claimed they did well but the two we selected did not look open or hadn’t opened yet. The Pizza Hut had a great salad bar and a special on 2 pizzas for $5.99 each which was a bargain. Subway had a crowd, lots of people on their deck out back. Our Subway has such a good reputation as being one of the cleanest and has the best servers in two counties. I don’t think anyone had complaints as the weather was awesome. The fishing was good and everyone seemed to have a great time. Crappie was plentiful and small bass was biting something fierce. Around 4 pm there was a massive line of boats/trucks leaving town. People seemed happy with whatever they caught. So God Bless Them. Haven’t heard from Area 71 but in passing Steak Inn they were packed

White Dogwoods are peeking out everywhere! Thank you God for all your good.

Table Rock Fishing is Awesome, so says Cliff Harmon at the Pro’s Choice on Bridgeway Plaza

 

In checking with Cliff Harmon, manager at Pro’s Choice “all things fishy” Table Rock fishing is out of this world this weekend.  Every one is catching  a lot of fish.  Trying to pin him down got me, “all kinds of fish”  are biting….”  So there it is a great weekend for wishing!  It is also the Lady Shriner’s weekend at the Knob.  So let us all put on our best smiles and good behavior and welcome the strangers in town.

 

I was visiting the Dogwood Trail Garden Trail sale at the VFW at 8 am.  The girls have a lot of stuff to share for nominal prices.Check out the plants that are for prizes in the raffle table. Those girls have spent hours organizing this sale.  Things are clean and organised for choice and price. Today they will be open til 5 pm.  Saturday morning they open again at 8 and will close it out by 2 pm.  So go up north  on highway 13, to the VFW.  Plenty of carpeting, fabric, odds and ends, lots of candles too!.

The Harvest Community Garden gals will have a table there to rent a planting plot at the United Methodist Church.  They have 16 plots there that visitors can rent one all summer with water supplied for $20.  Check out the table today  Betty Ragland is there, tell her Hi!

Step Back, Think, and Question all reports from Sensational News sources

OzarkadvertiserPaula Ozarkadvertiserandersen is feeling concerne

 

 On Monday when I was returning from Springfield and I had the radio on. I was shocked at the meanness that was being broadcast. It seemed every talk show was shouting cruel and judgmental comments with regard to our American system. I remember Columbine and the first event of school shootings. I cried that night because everyone was saying things like that event was the start of something evil. I still feel that way. People under 65 seem to be critical of everything. That age is just a median because being negative seems to be universal. Younger people spout off “Sure, you are happy because I am paying for your retirement.” That hurts because it isn’t true. If it is then somebody screwed the system. I am still working, helpful in volunteering, and a Christian. But–back to the point, the radio stations, everyone that had a talk show host was blasting America, using inflammatory words to describe acts that were actual legal and professional. Mr. Trump’s lawyer was interviewed and he described the way his investigation was conducted. Quote, “They were polite, handed me the summons, asked for entry and in every way legal in their actions.” Now it was reported on 3 television stations and all but one radio station that he was “Burst in upon!” Not true! His legal files, not possessions were taken. Straight from his mouth. It seems we are in a bad period where language,

media news, and writing has to be super exaggerated, and loaded with sensationalism to get the listener/viewer to pay attention. Please feel free to state your views and add to this.
