Reflections From Faith and History Giving Us the Best Medicine-By Jeff Olson Throughout her history, America has been a unique and exceptional nation in many ways. I believe that one aspect of this can be seen in the role humor has played, not just within personal relationships but also on a broader scale in permeating our culture through literature, art, music, and entertainment. During good times and bad, we have been able to laugh at others and at ourselves, helping to keep us a balanced and stable nation. We've been fortunate to have gifted people filling a special place in our society in leading the humor; not just humor for the sake of laughs but humor which could

produce a chuckle, stir our imagination and intellect, and leave us feeling better about ourselves and our country. Such artistry has helped us to persevere and keep it all in perspective. Allow me to briefly highlight two of the very best who were born in November and whose influence has spanned many generations for a century and a half: Mark Twain and Will Rogers. Mark Twain was born (Samuel Langhorne Clemens) on November 30, 1835 in Florida, Missouri. In his early years, he traveled all over America and worked at various jobs including riverboat pilot,

journalist, lecturer, entrepreneur and inventor. Twain's writing talent lead him to become a noted author of American fiction whose writing style was among the first to be considered originally and distinctly American. Among his most noted works are two major classics of American literature: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. The fictional locales of both were inspired by Twain's hometown of Hannibal, Missouri. He is considered the greatest humorist of his age, but his humor was evident not only in his writing but also through the extensive lecturing he did. He was a friend to presidents, artists, industrialists, and European royalty. Among the subjects of his humor, politicians were a pop-

ular target as he once quipped, "There is no distinctly American criminal class except Congress." Mark Twain died of a heart attack in 1910. Will Rogers was born (William Penn Adair Rogers) on November 4, 1879 near Oologah, Indian Territory (now Oklahoma). Rogers was a drifter in his early years, living life as a working cowboy and as a trick rider and roper with Wild West shows in America and in various places around the world. He is still considered as one of the greatest ropers of all time. It was only several years after Mark Twain's death that Rogers rose to prominence, first in the Ziegfeld Follies and then as a noted humorist, columnist, radio personality, and actor. To this day, he is perhaps most remembered for his famous line, "...I never met a man I didn't like." As did Mark Twain, Rogers liked to pick on politicians. He often commented that he didn't need to write jokes since he could just watch Congress and report the facts. Along with aviator Wiley Post, Will Rogers was killed in an airplane crash in Alaska in 1935. The Will Rogers Memorial in Cla-See History, continued pg. 16

Remembering Hearts Forever to host Candlelighting Losing a child, grandchild or a sibling changes the way daily life is lived, much less how the holidays are celebrated. Generally the holiday season magnifies the feelings of that loss. If the holidays are hard for you, you are not alone. Remembering Hearts Forever is a local group made up of families that have lost a child, grandchild or a grandchild at any age and any cause. Remembering Hearts Forever is participating in a world-wide candle lighting ceremony on Sun., Dec. 9 to honor the loved one missing from our families. A candle will be lit and the name of loved ones will be said. A slide show consisting of photographs to remember those lost will be presented and light refreshments will be served after the candle lighting. Most importantly, it will be a time of fellowship with people that truly understand the hardship of daily life after losing a family member. The Candle Lighting will be held in the back of the Union Bank building on Sun., Dec. 9. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. and the ceremony will begin at 6:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome to the event. You may bring a picture or a memento of your lost loved one to share with others. A table will be set up just for these items. Anyone wishing to speak during the event or wanting to submit a picture for the slide show is welcome to do so,

Mena Residents, I would like to publicly state my endorsement of Seth Smith for Mena Mayor. I grew up in the same neighborhood as Seth’s family. I have known Seth all his life. The position of Mayor needs honesty, integrity, and a willingness to listen to others. Seth will bring those qualities and many others to the table each day. His military service, law enforcement knowledge, and fire department skills give him an added advantage while undertaking this important position. I am confident that he will treat residents fairly and will take the City of Mena to a new level. ~Ron Tilley

VA PLANS COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT MEETING FOR FRI., DEC. 7 IN THE OUACHITA CENTER ON THE CAMPUS OF UA-RICH MOUNTAIN A Community Engagement Partnership Meeting has been scheduled for Fri., Dec. 7 beginning at 11 a.m. in the Ouachita Center of UA Rich Mountain.

The meeting has been planned by the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs Suicide Prevention Program and is open to all members of the community.

Suicide has become the tenth leading cause of death for military veterans in Arkansas and the rate is rising. The VA is asking for members of the community to help them combat this crisis and other issues our veterans face on a daily basis. According to Peer Support Specialist Dale Schultz, CPS, the best way for the VA to know the needs within a community is to establish a community panel that consists of 10-15 people. The panel will decide what the needs of the community are, present them and the VA will help by standing with the panel to

get the needs of the community met. Life does not have to be so hard for our returning veterans and suicides can be prevented but it will take a joint effort of the community and the VA to get programs in place. More information will be presented at the meeting, but you may contact Shultz at 501-231-3129 or by e-mail at dale.schultz@va.gov or Chris Short, CPS at 501-3527626 or by e-mail at johnshort2@ va.gov.

Question 5 - What makes you qualified to be the next Mayor of Mena?

Answer 5 - I have spent 16 years as a civil servant in various capacities including; Combat Infantryman, Polk County Deputy, and Mena Firefighter.

I have been lucky enough work with, and learn from some of the very best leaders and mentors. Most importantly, I will always be willing to put in the time and the work to do what is best for our hometown.

Geography Bee to be held at Mena Schools Thousands of schools are competing in this year’s contest from all across the United States and the five U.S. territories. Department of Defense Dependents Schools around the world are also competing. The Mena School District will be holding competition Thurs., Nov. 29 at the Mena High School Performing Arts Center located at 1200 Dallas Ave. beginning at 8:15. The champion of the Mena School District National Geography Bee will advance to the next level of competition, which is a qualifying test to determine state competitors. Up to 100 of the top test scorers in each state become eligible to compete in their State GeoBee.

The winners of the State GeoBees receive an all-expenses-paid trip to National Geographic Society headquarters in Washington, D.C., next May to participate in the GeoBee national championship, competing for cash prizes, scholarships, and all-expenses-paid Lindblad expedition to the Galapagos Islands aboard the National Geographic Endeavour II. More information is available at www.natgeobee.org. The national Geographic Society developed the National Geographic GeoBee in 1989 in response to concern about the lack of geographic knowledge amongst young people in the United States. 120 million students have participated in the GeoBee after more than

three decades of competition. For more information go to www. nationalgeographic.org/bee or con-

Their humor and humility flavored America with wit and wisdom and did so without insult, vitriol, or compromising American values, pride, or patriotism. Both men were similarly gifted, as their humor often poked fun at many aspects of the culture

one another but at ourselves too.
