To paraphrase Mark Twain
I share the fate of many a wayward son who wanders back to his home to find gray hairs where he expected youth... change where he had dreamed that somehow Time had stood still!--
When I first accepted this position weeks ago, I didn't think about how much things might have changed in Region 8. It's amazing to me to see the positive changes that have occurred in the decade that I have been away. In Jonesboro alone we have a new mall, a revitalized downtown, and don't even get me started on the changes at Arkansas State. I hardly recognize that the campus is the same one I set foot on as a freshman so many years ago. Now understand, I haven't had the chance to get much farther out than Jonesboro since I've been here, but as the days and weeks progress I plan to visit as much of Region 8 as possible.
That being said, I would like you to consider...one more change.
Consider This has been a part of the frame work here at KAIT for almost two years. My predecessor put a lot of stock in that title and he has asked to take that with him to his new station. How can I refuse? However, that leaves me without a title for these commentaries ...That's where you come in. Region 8, I need your help. If you have a name to suggest, please log onto KAIT8.com, click on Consider This, and give me your opinion. I look forward to hearing from you as we all work together for a better Region 8.
