CONWAY -- Home is indeed where the heart is, but Lesley Oslica has two homes. One is a spacious French country-style manse in the Wellington neighborhood on the city's west side. The other is parked inside the two-story carriage house across the drive. Inside the first is the office with memorabilia and match prints of past Dancing With Our Stars fundraisers (and Neil Young's "Long May You Run" on the stereo); in the second is a couple of big captain's chairs, a full-service kitchen and bathroom and queen-size bed, and the memories of four women who pedaled their way from Oceanside, Calif., to Annapolis, Md., in the Race Across America.

For the last few years it was Football 101 and for females, but Justin Acri, radio show host of the sports centric The Buzz, said it didn't go over well -- not with the women, but the men, who wanted in on the preseason action.

It's becoming an annual tradition -- good-intentioned adults from the Big Rock Mini Golf & Fun Park on Baseline Road and kids from the Centers for Youth and Families defy the bully heat and take in some fun in the sun (and a lot in the shade).

Another Arkansas Outdoor Hall of Fame induction ceremony — the 24th! This year’s a peach of a class — the writer/television producer Steve Bowman, the bladesmith Jerry Fisk, Ducks Unlimited president George Dunklin, and the late wildlife officer Joel Campora, who was helping two women trapped in their Y City home during a flood when it collapsed. (Campora, Scott County Sheriff Cody Carpenter and the two women were killed.)

For years the state’s Democratic Party chairman has been working on a big “get.” Oh, Hillary Clinton, the former first lady and now presidential candidate, for the party’s big Jefferson-Jackson Dinner fundraiser? No. Sure, that’s a big deal, too, but harder to get were the stage rights to Mrs. Miniver, the World War II-era novel- cum-winner of six Academy Awards, including Best Screenplay and Best Picture for 1942.

At the harvest-table arranged buffet dinner — picture fried chicken, coleslaw, potato salad, heirloom tomatoes and fresh cantaloupe, all from P. Allen Smith’s Moss Mountain Farms estate — and looking out over the dozens of speakers and their families who participated in his first organized TEDx event, Salil Joshi said he hasn’t yet gained the angle of repose on this thing.

It's hard these days to find a good script that hasn't been turned into a screenplay -- and vice versa -- and now scratch from the list 1942's Academy Award winner for Best Picture Mrs. Miniver.

Outside the major general's office, at the end of a long carpeted hallway, is a simple two-star doormat. The two stars are for the office, the adjutant general. The doormat is for the soles of your shoes.

They say the Delta stretches from the Louisiana bayou up the banks of the Mississippi right to the blues in each of us and back out, and for the purposes of the Arkansas Arts Center's 57th annual exhibition, let's throw in the easternmost flatlands of Oklahoma around Tulsa. That's where two-time Grand Award winner Mark Lewis lives.

What goes well with charity? Ice cream. The former just makes us feel good, and the latter ... also just makes us feel good. Staff at the Thea Foundation know this and for the second time hosted an Ice Cream Happy Hour at The Green Corner Store in the SoMa neighborhood of the Quapaw Quarter.
