Week in Review (June 2-8)
It was, as usual, a busy week here at First Arkansas News. We learned about the perils of moving a yard in Arkansas, innovation in the Natural State, discussed Wal-Mart and its “buy American/hire veterans” initiative the fact that bulletin board systems (BBS) are still alive although the Internet made dialing into local services obsolete, etc.
It would be a tragedy if our tens of fans missed a single thing that was posted in the past week. To avoid such unspeakable tragedy, then, we’ve made it easy to catch up on the goings on from the past week by allowing one to easily review all our articles from the past week in one spot. So, get those reading glasses on and get ready to click some links, ace.
* The Razorbacks will Finish 7-5 this fall — yes, you can take this prediction to the bank. Well, I wouldn’t go that far, but the Hogs will end 7-5 this year. Hey, this is the time of year when it’s time to make wild predictions about the football season. Right?
* No, the BBS is not extinct — think the Internet rendered the good old bulletin board system (BBS) obsolete? Telnet will prove you wrong, junior. Find out how to set up Telnet on your system and return to the good old days of dial tones and door games.
* The work of the search committee — Pastor Steve Ellison preaches up some wisdom.
* D-Day OTR: This is Our Enemy — June 6 was D-Day and First Arkansas News made sure to do its small part to honor those lads who invaded Normandy and kicked the filthy Nazis right in the teeth.
* Why Wal-Mart’s ‘buy American’ initiative could be significant — is the proper style “Walmart Stores Inc. runs Wal-Mart locations?” To be honest, we’re not really sure anymore. At any rate, Walmart launched an initiative back in January that’s looking increasingly significant as it could lead to more American jobs. That’s good news, right?
* Oklahoma Video Game Exhibition set for Sept. 21 — classic video game fans, rejoice! The OVGE is coming back to Tulsa for its 10th year.
* Weekend OTR: The Green Lama — because you can’t get too much old time radio.
* Innovation key to economic recovery? — what will lead to more jobs in Arkansas? Mike Steely thinks he has an answer.
* The Trials and errors of mowing the lawn in Arkansas — Theresa Komor delivers the goods.
* Lum and Abner — the newest comic strip is up. Have a look.
* Wikipedia Brown — the first serialized Wikipedia Brown adventure is up, so it’s time to dedicate a page to the series.
