Letter to the Editor

Thursday, September 17th, 2015

Letters to the editorAs we watch the world & national news, even here it southeast Arkansas, we are realizing that world evernts are only beginning to affect our lives. This letter, written by Monticello’s Nancy Miller, brings that to an even more clearer reality. Joe B.
—————
There is a mass exodus from the Middle East. Europe is overwhelmed. Christian families (direct descendants of the first believers at Pentecost) are stuck in Syria, merely existing in metal shipping containers. Awaiting ISIS/ISIL’s wrath.

Letter to the Editor – “To All Democrats, “

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

This is a call for help from the local Democrats in Southeast Arkansas. Where are you? Why are you not speaking out for your constituents and their firearms? Do something! Is the little “Ole” TEA Party left to speak for the Second Amendment? We have a crisis and the best I can tell, you have been silent. Our Second Amendment to the Constitution is being trampled. Please tell your party we do not want more gun control. And, while you are at it let all of us know (loud and clear) what you are doing. Please help us on this issue.

If you are a constituent like me, please tell these folks you agree with me.
Thank you for reading

One Monticello Life – BrookLynn White, Setting an Easter Example with Good Deeds

Sunday, April 8th, 2012

One young girl caught the attention and the heart of one local mom (and the rest of Monticello) last week when she showed an act of kindness to the mom’s son who came up empty handed during a mad rush at the Easter egg hunt. Seeing the young man with an empty basket, the young girl gladly shared her spoils. The mom was so moved, she wrote in to MonticelloLive to share the story. A story which ended up with a new day, but similar story when the same two children crossed paths again the next day, and, again, a moment of grace was exchanged when the young girl shared her eggs with her newfound friend (see the story below). At the recommendation of a few readers, this week’s One Monticello Life highlights BrookLynn White.

Letter to the Editor – “what goes up…must come down”.

Thursday, January 5th, 2012

We have all heard the saying that “what goes up…must come down”. For some reason, there are those people who do not believe this saying (or the law of gravity) applies to bullets fired into the air from a gun during the course of celebration. Over the New Year’s Eve holiday, a stray bullet pierced the hood of my car parked three feet away from my house during someone’s trigger happy celebration. There was also another incident in the Monticello area where a stray bullet went through someone’s roof and stopped in the family’s headboard where the parents were asleep in that bed with their small child. And this isn’t the first year this has happened.

What Happened to Southern Hospitality

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

Being born and raised right here in Arkansas, I’ve always had a lot of pride at how the rest of the country tends to think of us. I had someone from Iowa once tell me, “It’s so strange to me how you can be on line at the store around here (yes, they say ON line, not IN line) and out of no where some person you’ve never seen before will strike up a conversation with you. It must be a Southern thing…”

That conversation took place many years ago, and as I stand in line at stores today, I wonder how things have changed so rapidly. Are people really less polite today than they have ever been in the past?
