Profile story subjects worthy of coverage

A sincere thank you is extended to Lara Jo Hightower for her profile of Mike Thomas and Julie Gabel on Sunday, June 10. I thoroughly enjoyed the coverage. Moreover, I wanted to provide a long overdue thank you to Mike Thomas for his dedicated caring for not only his elementary students' education but the overall development of those students.

An example of his going way beyond his teaching duties was to attend our granddaughter's participation in a horse show on a weekend many years ago. It made a profound difference in her life. My wife and I always read the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Profile section; we especially appreciated the most recent Profile and hope your newspaper will continue insightful coverage of worthy citizens.

Just a few questions about those walls

My 10-year-old granddaughter said to me, "I don't believe we should build that wall."

I asked her, "Why do I have walls on my house and a door with a lock on it? It isn't because I don't like people, but I want to have control of who comes into my home, how many come and when."

"Oh," she said. "Now I get it."
