It’s late November and my mind begins to dwell on Thanksgiving dinner— not eating, but cooking. more
I’m not a Black Friday shopper. I’m a Black Friday sleeper. While the stores see black on the bottom line, the only black I see is the inside of my eyelids while I dream about which Thanksgiving leftovers to eat first. more
How many of you remember the summer movies? I know I should be featuring this column in the summer, but the photo I'm featuring here was posted recently on a Facebook site. It shows the northeast corner of the Springfield Square. A portion of the information pointed out the sign on the back of number 167 bus advertising the Cat and the Fiddle. For those of you who don't know where the restaurant was, it was located on South Glenstone, on the south end of the Plaza Shopping Center. more

Have you heard the bells? Each year during the holiday season, there are individuals standing at the doors of local businesses ringing a bell and asking for donations for the Salvation Army. When you make a donation at one of those local businesses, eighty-five percent of those funds stay right here in Dallas County to help with needs like utilities, housing, school supplies and food. Our local Salvation Army Extension Unit is administered by a board of local leaders who are excited and hopeful for this year’s bell ringing campaign. Bell ringing will be on Fridays and Saturdays starting the day after Thanksgiving at WoodsSupermarket, Buffalo Wal-Mart, and Cashsaver. If you or your organization would like to volunteer to ring bells, contact Salvation Army via email at mark@buffalocalvary.com or by calling (417) 345-6418. If you are in need of assistance from the Salvation Army, please contact them via the OACAC Neighborhood Center at (417) 345-7964. If you want to support an organization that makes an impact in the lives of Dallas County residents, come out and fill the kettles this holiday season! more
