A great number of people in Benton County were without electricity for two to three days due to the storm that went through Northwest Arkansas. August has had record breaking rainfall this year. As a background of farmer life, I wonder what fall and winter holds for us. Now Hurricane Dorian is heading for the islands off of Florida and then up the coast of Florida. Looks like fall is almost here.

Ballgames are starting and the first Friday night is going to be a beautiful cool evening. The Razorbacks will be playing on Saturday and hopefully they will have a great day for their first game.

I got a call from my daughter, Amanda. She was letting me know Mary Margaret had done very well on her first track meet. She came in third and broke her own record. I am looking forward to her 11th grade year.

Hopefully, everyone will have a great holiday!

Have a great week.
