    Mark Hebert, Editor|Oct 15, 2014

    On Saturday night in Malta, nearly 30 people attended the Grand Opening of ArtSpot and the theme of the night was to let your hair down, create a "masterpiece" and approach art with a childlike fascination. At the conclusion of the night, when folks went home with their newest artistic creation, all three objectives were reached with flying colors. Attendees of the ArtSpot grand opening had the opportunity to participate in several different rooms in which some of Phillips County's best-known...

  • Twilight years menu

    Parker Heinlein, Outdoors Columnist|Oct 15, 2014

    My future is secure. No thanks to Obamacare, the Tea Party or social secure it. Credit natural migration, global climate change or the alignment of the stars. Whatever. It appears I’m going to eat well in my twilight years. There are cottontail rabbits in my yard, gray squirrels within a few miles of the house and a bullfrog infestation on the Yellowstone River. I was raised in southern Indiana and left as soon as I could. Not that it was a bad place to grow up, but I’d always dreamed of bigger,...

  • Eyes bigger than my stomach

    Mark Hebert, Editor|Oct 15, 2014

    Sometimes my eyes are bigger than my stomach. Thanksgiving is in my top three of holidays. Any day that features family, football and food is A-OK in my book (throw in a couple of brewskies and away we go.) If there is one thing about this holiday that I could live without, it is the overeating I do on the day. My eyes are often bigger than my stomach and that third helping of whipped spuds and turkey gravy often leaves me writhing in pain as I attempt to pop the top button of my pants. I only bring up the eyes vs. stomach metaphor because it...
