    I do not argue politics or religion with people. I have my beliefs and opinions and will share those with someone who asks, but won’t argue my point. It doesn’t do any good anyway.

    Two hundred-year floods within a month can cause a lot of devastation. As we all know, most of Northwest Arkansas experienced that last spring. Devil’s Den was no exception.

    Stephen Marquardt from West Fork called me August 22 about a Swallow-tailed Kite, a black-and-white hawk with a forked tail. He was on highway 12 a few miles east of Clifty in northern Madison County. I was incredulous.
