An Ozark E-Zine

The past week the daytime temps here soared past 100-degrees(F) in the great out of doors with even the midnight hour bringing little relief  while we sat in the sweet abyss of AC. Thank God for Willis Haviland Carrier, 1902 inventor of the device. But today, Saturday, July 22 -- which happens to be the 13th B'day of my youngest (pray for me, I now have 4 teens under 1 roof <grin>) -- dawned clear and cool.

Also kewl (as my kids would say), with this edition of Gozarks we debut two new feature sections! Music, music, music and Best of Gozarks.

By popular request and expert self-assessment <grin>, these new pages index original music by undiscovered talent, starting with a lilting melody rife with melancholia titled 'Home and Family', plus classic feature stories such Arkansas Army National Guard visits Shirley Schools and It's OUR $$$$$$$$$$: The War on Drugs which we personally believe should be a 'must read' for every thinking being in the universe.

Let Freedom Ring....

So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty. ~James 2:12

So many topics, one singular theme: Liberty and Justice for All...

Not just for some. Not just for a few. Not just for the wealthy or the minority or the one's with the most potent might.

For all.... everyone. Each of us. Every individual man, woman and child.

Liberty + Dignity + Respect = Justice

It is a hand-in-glove equation grounded in 'unalienable rights.' Birthrights. Freedoms which no man, woman or government instituted by 'we the people' can deny. Thus in every instance, and especially those outlined below, we echo our patriot-forbearers: Let Freedom Ring!!!

What better time than July 4th to declare your independence from partisan bickering and polarizing politics. Take a look at:

Voices of Unity08: "It's time to put away partisan and polarizing attitudes that force the citizens to 'go right OR left' on issues. Become the statesmen you could be and look at compromise and decency to lead this nation and give real hope to the world.."
- Steve of Kohler, WI, Declaration Signer #5021
