It is interesting that the museum was built by one of the daughters of Sam Walton, founder of Walmart. People who live in Bentonville appreciate her philosophy that art and nature are vital to the human spirit and should be accessible to all. The Biblical statement that “a prophet is not without honor except in his own area” does not seem to apply here. In the Bentonville area, I heard only positive comments.
From Bentonville we drove to Hot Springs, the home of my son and daughter-in-law where I did more kinfolk visiting. My grandson, Tim D. Milligan, his wife Rhonda and daughter, Britanny, drove over from Ozark on Friday night and stayed until Saturday afternoon. Tim and Loyce returned me to my home Sunday afternoon. I thoroughly enjoyed my mini-vacation, and as always, the nicest thing about taking a trip is getting to come home afterward.
Baptist Village has two new residents who formerly lived at Byng. Mary Jo Samora graduated from Byng High School and has fond memories of J.E. Teague as superintendent. Several residents of Baptist Village became acquainted with Mary Jo on an Alaskan tour several years ago.
Glen Taylor moved into the Village last Saturday. He drove a bus for the school for several years.
