LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

N earing its 10th year, Riddle's Elephant and Wildlife Sanctuary, a 330-acre tract of land nestled deep in the Arkansas hinterlands, is the only facility of its kind in the world -- and the latest chapter in its proprietors' lifelong pursuit.

Billboard proliferation is spiraling out of control in Memphis, and authorities are in no position to stop it. God is also interested in billboards these days.

Spiritual tour guide Dennis Andres is the man to locate when you want to go sightseeing in Sedona, a once-little village that now attracts four million visitors a year.

The beauty of life and nature is that when everything works right, nothing and no one goes hungry.

And, in honor of the Weekly Wire's second birthday, we've picked a couple of stories from our archives.
