A look at life as observed from the heart of the Ozarks. There's humor, nostalgia, even a tearjerker or two among this collection of award-winning newspaper columns by Thomas "Sonny" Garrett of The Baxter Bulletin.

Who would have thought $1.22 per gallon gasoline would sound good? Thatís what the price was in Mountain Home 25 years ago in the midst of a gas war.
Ah, the good old days. Thatís when one fast-food place offered a burger, fries and a drink for $1.84.
You canít even get a gallon of gas for that now let alone a meal that could give you gas.
With the price of gas heading toward the stratosphere it makes you long for the time when gas was cheap. I remember pumping gasoline for 29 cents a gallon when I worked part-time at Joe Minnickís service station in DeKalb, Texas. And that was for pemium.
For that 29 cents, along with gasoline you got your windshield washed, your oil checked and free air for your tires while you sat in the comfort of your vehicle. Now, for the premium price of about $2.35 a gallon and more, you get out of your car, pump your own gas, wash your own windshield, check your own oil and air your own tires.
Whatís wrong with this picture?
