    Just back from a long vacation, I don't feel my usual dislocation. Internet connections were sketchy, but I read the Arkansas Times and the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette and stayed up with e-mail.

Re: “Police identify suspect, officer in carjacker shooting

I personally know Officer Breshears as he worked off duty for Worthen Bank & Trust in the early '90's as did many other officers that I got to know. He's one of the most professional officers you will ever run into. He also knows about as much on gangs in Little Rock as you will find. I saw him about six months ago in our parking lot after a traffic stop doing paperwork and he's the same courteous officer he's always been.

Re: “Riverfest calls it quits

The beauty of Riverfest is they do a post mortem each year that is brutally honest or at least they did in my day. I was a committee chairman and also a board member in the '80's and the one thing we were true to was what worked and what didn't. You may be at that point now where it is no longer viable and if that is the case let's say thanks folks, you had a hell of a forty year run. Most importantly thank you volunteers who put on this festival. You have to give Julius Breckling and Jim Sick a big pat on the back for allowing the committee to have the vision to allow and help what would become Riverfest. When I started, the Excelsior was new and had two parking lots and an old jail sitting on one parking lot. That's it! Riverfest promoted the march east. And as the march went east you not only cleaned up a sleezy part of the riverfront that was littered with beer cans and needles but an amphitheater was added. The march east has always been part of Riverfest and now you are all the way down to the Clinton Library. I will never forget that someone in the 80's told me and it was probably Jimmy Moses that great American cities are known for their riverfronts and I think all who participated in Riverfest did that for our city. Let's not be sad as we have a great place to show off to our visitors.

Re: “Thursday's open line. The news isn't healthy

Gosh, it just dawned on me suburban pup that I've been at it for 50 years and I'm not near retirement yet. You ever had a callous?

Re: “'Morning Joe' hosts fire back at Trump

I'm sorry golfler but it is a big deal in that we've never had a President with this big of a fetish for female blood.

Re: “Saturday open line

Happy Birthday Max! I picked my very first Cherokee Purple from my garden last night and ended up with my first BLT of the season. Mighty fine!

Re: “Over the hump open line, plus news

pj - I don't have much expertise in this because my kids were public school kids but I coached baseball with a guy for ten years whose 10, 11 or 12 kids were all home schooled. I don't think in my lifetime I've ever been around a family that was more balanced and I got to coach three or four of their kids and have one or two of the big brothers to help out. Each kid got to choose where they wanted to go to High School and it was Central, Catholic Or the Mount for most of them. A couple of them even played college ball. I've never thought of home schooling to be a threat to public schooling.
