From The Courier Files - 1930

Corning friends of Mrs. Mae HAIZLIP, (the former Mae HAYS) now a noted St. Louis aviatrix, but formerly a well-known popular Corning girl, watched the newspaper with close interest for results of the National Air Races held recently in Cleveland, Ohio, in which Mrs. HAI- ZLIP won second place for Women's Aerial trophy, doing 165.22 miles per hour for a purse of $2,500. Mrs. HAIZLIP is prominent in aviation circles, having participated in many national races in recent years and winning many trophies. She is the wife of James HAIZLIP, an executive of the Shell Petroleum Company at St. Louis. He also is prominent in aviation. Mrs. HAIZLIP resided here with relatives, Mr. and Mrs. Howard HAYS for about six years and removed to Colorado in 1919.

Mistaking lip service for leadership . . .

Right now there are many teachers across Arkansas and in the United States expressing concern, anger, and worry about starting a school year during a pandemic with Covid case numbers higher than last spring. Some teachers, none that are local that I’ve heard, say they are planning to protest while others are resigning for health reasons and others in fear. They have families, spouses with weakened immune systems, children, and elderly parents that they don’t want to infect in case they contract COVID-19. Some are doing what educators have been known to do throughout time, accept the situation, saddle up and do the best they can to just do what they love; teach.

It’s August.

That means the days will be getting shorter and shorter.

It also means that some day before long it will get too cold for mosquitoes!

On canning day I was forever having to go to the store for standard emergencies including running out of salicylic acid (for green beans, I think), more sugar when were making jelly, more jar lids or sealing rings, a box of ceiling was, a box of paraffin, and salt. And the famous last words before I took off to the store, “And you come straight back home, we need that right now and had better not have to come looking for you.” In other words, don’t start any fights along the way, don’t stop at Harry Lasater’s store to look at the candy, don’t be trying to win a bitter chocolate rabbit or something else on one of the punch boards at Clyde Lasater’s store, stay out of the horse watering trough in front of Rhea Hardware, don’t be stopping at Bert’s Cafe to spend a penny or two for Guess Whats and don’t take Blackie (dog) along because they don’t want him inside the grocery store.
