The French Quarter

By Cathy Ledbetter 

Two Saturdays nights ago my daughter, Shelby, and I were sitting at a window table in a restaurant in the French Quarter of New Orleans watching people walk by in the rain.

Stop the Press! History-making event replaces flamethrower

Todd Cecil, host of Revival Flames Ministries of Joplin, Missouri, was just about the biggest celebrity to make an appearance in Lennox Valley during my childhood and early teen years.

Notes from the Spring Creek Arts Guild

By Cathy Ledbetter 

In our culture, January is the month of shedding excess. We go on diets, join gyms, and go through our homes, purging excess and organizing what remains. I remember reading somewhere that January is the month that places such as Goodwill and Salvation Army get most of their donated items.

Elm Grove Echoes

By Rhonda Wyatt
