“Field of Dreams” Next OLT Free Movie Baseball season is in full swing all over America. The crack of the bat, the smell of freshly mown grass, the chatter from the dugout; it’s all part of our national summer experience. And baseball is quite possibly the most romantic of all sports. It’s why little boys have collected baseball cards since the 1950’s, and why fathers and sons play catch, and why Hollywood has made more movies about baseball than any other sport. It just tugs at our heartstrings. And it is why baseball is called America’s past time. “Field of Dreams” is a romantic look at baseball, no doubt. But at its heart, it is a movie about family. It is a fantasy with a notably weird premise. Kevin Costner plays Ray Kinsella, a young husband and father who is a novice farmer in rural Iowa. One summer evening, he hears a “voice” that tells him, “If you build it, he will come.” He’s not sure why, but he feels like if he mows down his cornfield and builds a baseball field in the middle of his farm, that Shoeless Joe Jackson will appear. Shoeless Joe was a real life member of the famed “Black Sox” scandal of 1919 whereby the professional baseball players took money to throw the World Series. And Ray is right. Shoeless

Sonlighters Card Shop will host a closing sale June 18th from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and at 5, the Sonlighters Card Shop will close its doors for good. The Sonlighters Card Shop has been a staple of the Polk County since the 80’s when the Day Spring card company started donating cards that had slight defects to Joan Sparks who worked with other volunteers to

Joe shows up; and life begins to get more complicated, and at the same time wonderful, for Ray and his family. He continues to hear the voice, telling him to do more things. The film builds up to one of the most touching final scenes in any movie. It is notorious for making grown men cry. If you’ve never seen this film, no spoilers here; you just need to visit the Ouachita Little Theatre on Wednesday, June 13th, to see it for yourself. Made in 1989, this movie was nominated for three Academy Awards, including Best Picture. In addition to Costner, it stars James Earl Jones, Ray Liotta, Amy Madigan, and Burt Lancaster in his final role in film. “Field of Dreams” became part of the Library of Congress U.S. National Film Registry in 2017, recognized for being “culturally, historically, and aesthetically significant.” Rated PG for mild language, it is a movie for all ages. Visit the OLT at 6 p.m. to see what The Lyric Players will do to tie their short performance into our baseball theme. The movie will start at 6:30 p.m., the popcorn will be hot and ready. All concessions are $1 and admission is free, but donations are always welcome.

Davis wins Little Rock Golf Tour Championship Two local golfers competed on the 9-year-old Little Rock Local Golf Tour this spring. Rich Davis and Marcus Graves of Mena competed in eight tournaments that started on March 3 at the Centennial Valley Golf Tournament.

Graves finished the tournament in third place and earned 30 championship points after shooting 6-over par. Davis also won the tour championship with 237.5 points. Graves finished the tour in fourth place with 104 points.

A Staple of Polk County to Close its Doors

form the Sonlighters Card Shop on De Queen Street. The card shop served as a place where seniors, age 55 and older, could purchase greeting cards for literally all occasions at discounted prices. Offering affordable cards to seniors was the mission of the shop and all monies raised were donated back to worthy causes in the community.

The card shop on De Queen Street was destroyed during a tornado in 2009. But, thanks to the generosity of Roy and Cathy Anderle the Sonlighters Card Shop reopened on September 15th of 2009 on Highway 8 West. Cathy stated she first learned of Sonlighters while her son was serving in Iraq. She said he and other soldiers

were unable to purchase cards in Iraq that contained scriptures that they could send home to family members. So, Sonlighters gave cards to Cathy to share with her son and his fellow soldiers. The card shop has been open since the 80’s but will close its doors for the final time following the June 18th sale.

FROM SENATOR LARRY TEAGUE

L

egislators and business leaders have made it a priority to encourage more Arkansas students to graduate from college with a degree or a certificate proving that they have learned a core set of job skills. The overall prosperity of a state depends in large part on the educational level of its citizens. That was one of the reasons the legislature changed the funding formula for state colleges and universities last year. State aid to higher education will no longer rely so much on enrollment, and instead will be based more on the number of graduates who successfully complete their studies. After changing the method of funding colleges and universities, the legislature then added $10 million to state aid during the fiscal session earlier this year. The hope is that additional state aid will allow institutions to hold down tuition increases. In a letter to presidents and chancellors of Arkansas universities, the governor noted that tuition at their institutions had gone up from 3 percent to more than 6 percent a year over the past 10 years. He challenged universities to freeze tuition next year, and he challenged twoyear colleges to hold any increase to the level of inflation. According to a report by the Southern Regional Education Board on the afford-

ability of higher education in Arkansas, “Tuition and fees at both public four-year and public two-year institutions in Arkansas have been growing much more rapidly than either inflation or family income.” That report described tuition increases from 2006 through 2014. Research indicates that one of the important reasons that students don’t finish college is that they have problems paying for it. Even for students with financial aid, tuition and fees eat up a high percentage of their family’s income. In the past few weeks, the boards of trustees of higher education institutions have been meeting to set tuition and fees for the 2018 fall semester. The universities have accepted the challenge and held tuition to this year’s levels, but they have increased mandatory fees. Tuition will remain unchanged at the five four-year campuses in the University of Arkansas system. They are in Fayetteville, Fort Smith, Little Rock, Monticello and Pine Bluff. However, fees will go up at all the campuses. Tuition for the system’s seven two-year colleges will go up, but by less than 2.1 percent. Arkansas State University in Jonesboro will also hold tuition to current levels, although fees will go up. The ASU system has four two-year colleges, and fees will go up slightly at three of them. ASU Mid South in West Memphis will not raise

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Opioid Crisis – the Other Side Have you noticed for the last three years that all the publicity about opioids has been negative? I believe there is also a side to this crisis that needs to be addressed. For people who have legitimate health issues that cause excruciating amounts of pain, these pain pills are crucial in getting pain relief and giving people the ability to have any quality of life. I have read articles in newspapers and heard many stories on the news about people who abuse these drugs and overdose. The loss of life is always sad and tragic no matter what the circumstances. However, there are also people who commit suicide because they can no longer stand their pain and view suicide as their only way out. Unfortunately, this is a very common occurrence. I have experienced this first hand with a family member and a friend. These suicides are, in my opinion, the most tragic because they could have been prevented with simple pain relief. I am a Vietnam War Veteran. I have had nine major surgeries throughout my lifetime. Each surgery has left me with more pain and severe arthritis. I have no choice but to take prescription pain medication to get pain relief so that I can function in my every day life. Doctors have cracked down on prescription

The May report from the Department of Finance and Administration indicates that for the first 11 months of the fiscal year, revenue collections are on a pace to generate a budget surplus of $44 million. Net general revenue for the year-todate is about $4.9 billion, or 3.3 percent more than last year. painkillers because there are some people who abuse them, but what about the people who need them and have never abused them? The point is that the people who really need these pain medications have also been affected by this crisis. They can’t even get enough pain medication now to have a good quality of life. If someone has legitimate health problems that cause pain, then they should be able to get the amount of pain medications that they need to have to lead a good quality of life. It is very unfortunate that a person has to go out of town and sometimes out of state, to get the amount of pain medication that they need to have any quality of life. In conclusion, opioid abuse is a problem that has been addressed by doctors and congress in a very unfair way. They have decided to take pain medication away from everyone. The media is constantly talking about one side of the opioid crisis but they never report on the other side of the crisis. That side is that people who have legitimate health issues with severe pain can’t get the pain medication that they need. It is not fair to punish these people, who have never abused pain medication, for the problems and abuse of others. In trying to fix one crisis they have created another one. Dan Cost

RAPTURE OR NOT? As we move toward the “last days” more and more interest is being generated by the word “rapture”. And it is one of the most misunderstood words in the English language. “Rapture” is not a Biblical word, neither does it refer to the return of Christ for His Church. Please read on. Rapture, by definition means something quite different than the common understanding. Statements like “are you ready for the rapture?” And questions like “who is going in the rapture” demonstrate a lack of knowledge of Scriptural teaching. Hear me out. Webster’s Dictionary defines rapture in this way: “The state of being carried with joy, love, ecstasy… an expression of great joy, pleasure.” Rapture, by definition, is an emotional experience of unparalleled joy and “ecstasy.” By definition it has nothing to do with the doctrine that so many associated with it. The Biblical doctrine that many, if not most, folks refer to when they use the word, is, literally the doctrine of the great “catching away,” or the great “kidnapping,” or some other such term. From I Thessalonians chapter four come these words: “For the Lord Himself will come down from Heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first, After that, we who are still alive and are left will be CAUGHT UP with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever”(I Thes. 4: 16, 17). And it is exactly at this point where “rapture” comes in! All who have loved Him in this life and who have watched anxiously for His return, will experience a joy, an ecstasy beyond imagination, for the very first time being in His visible Presence. It is this “rapture” that all of the truly regenerated will experience! It is what we look for! So, when, and if, you are one of those who does not believe in “rapture,” try to imagine being in His presence without it! It will be impossible for those of us who love Him now to be in His presence without that joy beyond imagination, beyond description. They will hear His Words “enter into the joy of the Lord” (Mt. 25: 21). The alternative is horrible beyond imagination: “depart from Me… I never knew you” (Mt. 7: 21-23). Can we deny this “rapture”? As to the doctrinal side of the thing we need only to read the text in I Thessalonians 4, and once we know the meaning of the Greek word is that is translated “caught up,” that part of the problem will clear up also. So what is that word, and what does it mean? The word is “Harpadzo” and it means to “take away by force.” And the force will be the power of the almighty God! And so it will be! Those of us who “remain” until the coming of the Lord will experience Harpadzo! And we will be glad! We will rejoice, and the angels will even be jealous of us. I don’t know about anyone else, but, as for me, I look forward with great anticipation to the experience of actually being with Him! More than just on the spiritual level. Do you? My name is Gene Stacks and I approve of this message. PAID FOR BY GENE STACKS

POLK COUNTY FARM FAMILY OF THE YEAR

Farm Bureau of Arkansas named Matthew and Jessica Debnar of Mena the Polk County Farm Family of the Year during the 71st annual Arkansas Farm Family of the Year Program. The Debnars have four children, John -26, Jennifer – 25, Amber – 20 and Peyton – 18. Today, the Debnar Farm consists of three farms, The JC Farm, which Jessica purchased before she married Matthew. After they got married the Debnars bought the Faith Farm, which sets across the road from their church. Recently, they purchased the Funny Farm. Matthew said they plan to covert one of the older chicken houses on that property into a hay barn. The Debnar’s raise cattle and broilers on their three farms north of Mena. The Debnars have five poultry houses and raise a total of 150,000 birds per growing cycle. The Debnars have a contract with Tyson Foods. He said the chicken house on the JC Farm has been retrofitted and they are renovating the four houses on the Faith Farm.

he Debnars also have 9 registered Braunvieh female cows and one registered Brauvnieh bull. They also have 17 unregistered Braunvieh or Braford cows and one unregistered Braunvieh bull. Matthew explained the cattle are marketed through CattleRange.com and word of mouth. Matthew also reported they are making some improvements to their pastures by utilizing a rotational grazing program. He stated they are in the process of laying a waterline for the watering system. Matthew said this would allow them to better manage their land and grass. The Debnars work with the Polk County Conservation District to increase the nutritional value of their hay. Matthew also acquired his private applicator pesticide license so he can spray their ďŹ elds to help control weeds and other pests that could potentially damage their ďŹ elds.

Jessica said she grew up on a farm. Her parents had bottle calves, cows and chicken houses. Jessica said she always wanted to be at home with her children. She said having a chicken farm allowed her to stay at home and still earn an income. Jessica said Amber was 3 and Peyton was 4-months old when they signed the papers on the original farm. She said she literally did the dishes, changed diapers, read stories, while learning to be a electrician, a plumber and a maintenance person. John Debnar is married to Brittany and they live in Anderson, Missouri. They have three children and he works for Peterbuilt. Jennifer Roberts lives in Cherry Hill with her three children and works for Tyson. Amber Debnar lives in Mena and works at the Mena Center for Women’s Health. And, Peyton Debnar graduated in May.

New to Parenthood? Smart Tech Can Help

Beth Polo Beckel RD LD CDE,

STATEPOINGT

Being a new mom or dad can be tough. But smart tech is revolutionizing the way parents care for their little ones, alleviating common parenting worries, such as sickness, the baby sleeping through the night and proper feeding. Eighty percent of American adults use or would use smart products to help care for a new baby, according to a recent survey commissioned by leading faucet manufacturer, Moen and conducted online by Harris Poll in April 2018. The poll investigated what parents are anxious about and how smart tech can make their job a little easier. Why are smart home products so popular? From the bathtub to the nursery, smart technology can help parents keep their babies safer and provide peace of mind. With smart tech to the rescue, you too can enhance your parenting skills while spending more time enjoying your newborn.
