Horoscopes by Holiday

posted: 05/20/2018 1:58 a.m. Discuss

Happy birthday. You're extremely self-sufficient, yet you also recognize that to give is a real human need. If you don't let people help you, you are denying them the satisfaction of contribution. You'll be a chosen beneficiary. Gifts will be bestowed on you periodically. In time, you'll pay forward the many blessings, but for now, just enjoy!

Tell Me About It: Give your differences a rest

posted: 05/20/2018 1:58 a.m. Discuss

DEAR CAROLYN: A message from my brother: "'John,' you have tried to call me a few times, wondering why I don't answer. ... When you were sending those group messages to me and I politely asked you to stop, your comment was, 'I like to include you, why does it matter?' So I blocked your number. I hate those and you're not the only one that I have blocked. And another comment you said to me is, 'You have to watch what you say to me because you might [tick] me off.' So for now Messenger is the only contact until you stop those group texts or I will block again."

Richmond revelation

posted: 05/20/2018 1:57 a.m. Discuss

I owe Richmond, Va., an apology. Countless times, I've zipped past the exits for this capital city, a place not quite far enough from Washington, D.C., for a pit stop on a road trip, and not quite close enough for a meal. I ran out of excuses. I pulled off Interstate 95 and entered Richmond for the first time.

Chances are you weren't invited to the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle taking place at Windsor Castle -- neither was I -- but that doesn't mean you can't visit the place where it happened, or other royal residences in Great Britain. In addition to Windsor Castle, London's Kensington, Buckingham and Hampton Court palaces -- and the more remote Balmoral Castle in the Scottish Highlands -- are great places to put yourself in royal shoes for a day.

Both Dorothy Cardiel and her husband, Andrew, are veterans. He served in Vietnam in the mid-1960s, and she in California in the mid-1970s. Cardiel knows first-hand some of the challenges of finding services veterans desperately need. She also knows that many -- most -- of the younger veterans are not involved with organizations like the American Legion or Veterans of Foreign Wars and don't have access to the resources those groups can provide.

Walk On The Wild Side

Despite the billboard hanging there, it can still be easy to miss Branson's Promised Land Zoo as you're coasting down Shepherd of the Hills Expressway.

It's personal

The Little Rock-born black composer Florence Price, though she has been dead for 65 years, has finally taken her place on the national classical music scene. Much of this recent attention is due to the discovery in 2009 of a large cache of Price music in an abandoned house in Illinois, including several compositions previously thought lost. I am proud to have played a role in rescuing the collection and making it available to researchers and musicians. Just last week the Fort Smith Symphony performed two of Price's major compositions, including the world premiere of her Fourth Symphony.
