The Civil War ended 150 years ago. Its ghosts linger on aluminum.

Drivetime Mahatma: Oversize load a legal annoyance

posted: 03/28/2015 2:29 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: The other day I was stuck in traffic for 20 minutes because an escort truck had the road blocked. No police, but someone with the escort company was there with an orange vest. What is their right to stop traffic? Do I have to obey the escort company personnel? There also have been times when I was unable to pass on the interstate. -- Rotary Phone in a Cellphone World

As years go, 1848 was a big one.

Drivetime Mahatma: 'Murder,' or prudent pruning? or Myrtles' 'murder' defended

posted: 03/21/2015 3:22 a.m. Comments 2

Dear Mahatma: Please pass along to whoever decided to prune the crape myrtles along Interstate 630 that there's no need to top them. This practice, crape murder, destroys their natural shape and beauty. It also encourages home owners to follow suit. -- Crape Myrtle Fan

Ebola survivor: Diagnosis surreal

It's hard to imagine a diagnosis worse than Kent Brantly's.

Drivetime Mahatma: Radar site on private land is OK

posted: 03/14/2015 2:17 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: I've been told that it's unlawful for cops to sit on private property while waiting to cite drivers for speeding. But I often see Sherwood police perched in gas stations and church parking lots waiting to pounce. Am I uninformed or are they crossing legal boundaries? -- Justin

The magic of words

posted: 03/09/2015 2:57 a.m. Comment 1

Once upon a time, still the best way to start a story, a few journalism students were discussing the power of words. It was a graduate class, which made the talk especially serious, or deep, or compelling. Or maybe the right word is gazing, as in navel.

Drivetime Mahatma: Bus stop perplexes motorist

posted: 03/07/2015 3:40 a.m. Discuss

Oh Great Mahatma: I travel on Brockington Road from Kiehl Avenue to Arkansas 107 in Sherwood. The road is divided. I see school buses stop to pick up children, red lights blinking. Am I supposed to stop if I am on the oncoming traffic side? The kids on the bus are not crossing Brockington. -- Concerned Grandma

Drivetime Mahatma: Roadside radar feeds sign boards

posted: 02/28/2015 2:24 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: There are a lot of small orange trailers on Interstates 430 and 40. They have small solar panels and radar guns. Is this for traffic count or speed? They seem to be every 1,000 feet. -- Ed

Drivetime Mahatma: Kindly get snow, ice off car top

posted: 02/21/2015 3:13 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: After a winter storm, as we bebop around in our ice-covered vehicles, some people don't think or care to get the ice off their hoods, roofs and trunks. So an iceberg the size of the one that sank the Titanic becomes airborne and crashes into the following vehicle. This shows a lack of respect for others and could hurt someone. Take the time and do the right thing. -- Mr. Good Advice
