A Visit to Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art sponsored by Methodist Church of Shell Knob

Dale Chihuly, since 1975 has created drawings on cylindrical vessels inspired by Native American textiles, like the trade blanket collection seen in this exhibition.  Colorful glass threads are carefully laid out in an intricate design and fused onto the vessel when it is in its molten stage.  The drawings and shapes on the walls here are his [...]

Editor’s Notes

As you look at Shell Knob's Bridgeway Plaza and the local grocery store, Harter House, we see new owners and new businesses.  Let's think about the immense financial and physical investment these individuals have made to be a part of our Shell Knob community. Why not try stopping by with a friendly "hello"? Too often our first encounter is to ask [...]

Editorial with Regard to Recent Shooting Incident in Alexander, VA

It makes sense in today's society to be prepared and alert.  Currently we see individuals that are disrespecting our basic freedoms.  They have lost their respect of being free, responsible, for living in America.  They have been stirred by personal biases, media sensationalism, and prejudices that have permeated their beings. Somehow they [...]

Letter to the Editor written by Barbara Dickerson

 Letter to the Editor Voters were asked last April to support a Library Tax Levy. Because that Tax Levy did not pass the days the Shell Knob library is open, along with all the libraries in Barry and Lawrence Counties were cut to 3 days a week.

Movie Review by Paula

Free State of Jones is a movie of intensity!  Matthew McConaughey portrayed Newton Knight, a man that you see changed by a war that saw his family and friends killed irreverently.  Be prepared for the first seven or so minutes of graphic battle scenes where men are killed, and mutilated by the tragic military tactics of standing and marching [...]

Local Library to be Limited to ONLY THREE DAYS of Service to our Community an editorial by Paula Andersen

As a child I was lucky that the local library was open six days a week.  It was five blocks from our home and it was safe to walk there. As an only child I took refuge there during the summer months as my mother was always working to sustain us.  In the winter a weekly trip was enough to return and replenish my reading library.  My love of [...]

OK! It is back to work for your local blogger! After back surgery, rehab, and a lot of pain I am ready to start again.

Dear Friends, Thank you for the many cards, flowers and visits during my medical event.  Four new pieces in my spine is virtually painless now.  But I did end up with a foot drop that seems intent on slowing me down.  Perhaps in a year both feet will be functioning properly.  It was good to get home, the dogs were ready for their home turf [...]
