Tell Me About It: Family trumps jealous beau

posted: 07/22/2018 2:11 a.m. Discuss

DEAR CAROLYN: I have been dating my boyfriend for about a year and a half. Things have been going well but recently he began expressing to me that he was uncomfortable about the fact that nine years ago, I used to date the brother of my now-brother-in-law (through my sister's marriage). My boyfriend said he is uncomfortable being around him at family events. It was a serious relationship at the time -- we lived together -- but both of us have more than moved on since then and even hung out as friends on multiple occasions.

Happy birthday. You're healthy, gorgeous and flush. Seeing as 90 percent of what you've worried about in the past hasn't happened, it could be argued that worry is unnecessary (or that worry actually works!): You decide, but so much is going right for you in the next 12 months that a worry-free year ahead is yours if you choose to take it.

Lest we forget

The last time I saw the Picardy region of France was in 1978. I was visiting an old family friend, who suggested we take a road trip to see the chateaux and cathedrals that dot the landscape there and nearby in Champagne-Ardenne and Lorraine, all of which are an easy drive from Paris. Off we went in her Peugeot 504 and at some point I became lost (this was in the days before GPS obviously) and decided to make an illegal U-turn through a break in the median. "Georgie don't!" Nan cried. "The gendarmes are very strict! It could be a big fine."

Travel in Europe: 'Reality tours' and 'volunteer vacations' pay off

posted: 07/22/2018 2:09 a.m. Discuss

Honolulu or Havana? The world is full of travel opportunities that are more than enjoyable -- they can be transformational. By getting out of your comfort zone, you realize that different people find different truths to be self-evident and God-given. You gain empathy for the other 96 percent of humanity -- and in many ways you can learn a lot about your own country by viewing it from afar.

Falcons attract tourists

Falconry is an old tradition in many parts of the world, including the United Kingdom and the Middle East. But now it's starting to be offered as an activity for tourists at hotels, vineyards and other sites around the U.S., from Vermont and Colorado to California.

Out of This World

The setting for Crystal Bridges' Sci-Fi Outdoor Movie Series, which kicks off on July 26 with the 1956 classic "Forbidden Planet," is the North Lawn of the museum. It's directly in the shadow of the futuristic-looking R. Buckminster Fuller creation "Fly's Eye Dome" -- and adult public programs manager Sara Segerlin says that was no accident.

Culinary History

How do you begin to tell the history of a people within a medium where they have been ignored, discarded and sometimes even actively erased? Culinary journalist and author Toni Tipton-Martin begins, in her lectures, with an exercise in implicit bias.

King of summer

It's watermelon season in Arkansas. Today, while traveling in Benton, in Saline County, I noticed a steady stream of drivers on Military Road turning into a parking lot where a street vendor advertised "Cave City Watermelons." Cave City -- which is situated on the border of Sharp and Independence counties -- has in recent years emerged as the home of some mighty tasty melons. In a few days both Cave City and the unofficial watermelon capital of Arkansas, Hope, will each sponsor three-day watermelon festivals.

Jeane Mack has a big heart for the youth who come her way, whether their roads to the Washington County Juvenile Detention Center where she is director are paved with bad luck, bad choices or bad living situations -- or, in most cases, a combination of all three.

So Much To Say

posted: 07/22/2018 1 a.m. Discuss

Kevin Arnold worries. And he's convinced he's not alone. Americans, he says, have been "left in a perpetual state of mental and physical malnutrition" brought on by the "unrestrained flow of media that we allow into our personal space at every turn at every minute of the day."

All Spun Up

When Greg Lindley and Matt Crafton were first approached by the Rogers Chamber of Commerce to bring a biking element to the Frisco Festival more than five years ago, the avid cyclists rose to the occasion by creating two unique events -- Race for the Spike and Frisco 5 Poker Ride. Both events were so successful that, in 2015, the duo were able to create the Rogers Cycling Festival, a three-day event focused solely on their favorite sport. It has since exploded into a nationally known spectacle with nine different races -- two of them sanctioned by USA Cycling, the governing body for bicycle racing.
