History lives upstairs

This month’s history columns are jam packed with history-making news. First, former President Johnson was in town in for the dedication of Robert S. Kerr and W. D. Mayo Lock & Dams on the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System in October 1970. In the photo above you can see two other photos showing the day of the dedication with President and First Lady Johnson, as well as other politicians and my grandparents, Florence and Wheeler Mayo, who attended to celebrate his father, W.D. Mayo, who had died in 1964.

Think on these things

Wisely, we cannot let a bad example influence how we are going to feel. We are individuals with minds and spirits totally different from others. Our compassion cannot make us have pity for others by taking it on as our own. Bless people but do not copy them.
