Dear Mahatma: What is with the red lights at the new overpass and the one south of it on Shackleford?

In the garden

Q I was hoping, now that we have received some rain with prospects good for more, that we would have wonderful color in a little over a month. But my wife and I noticed that the Northern and Southern red oaks and the white oaks, especially, on our four acres don't seem to have much of an acorn mast. A few sylvan oaks seem to be in better shape. I know the oaks don't always produce a mast every year. However, a large white oak next to the house has already begun dropping a few dark green acorns that are over an inch long. If there's a small mast, and the Farmers' Almanac is right and we have a hard winter, the deer and squirrels are in for it. What's the situation?

Anyone who knows what anxiety, and sometimes anguish, parents go through when they have a child who is still not talking at age 2, 3 or even 4 can appreciate what a blessing it can be to have someone who can tell them what to do--and what not to do.

I'm angry. On a sunny day last week, my mother-in-law left her house at the end of a cul-de-sac in far west Little Rock to have lunch with a friend who was visiting from Washington, D.C. During the short time they were gone, one or more intruders kicked in the front door, ransacked the house and took items worth thousands of dollars.
