    Hmm is anyone else having problems with the images on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to determine if its a problem on my end or
    if it’s the blog. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Here is my site … opinion surveys

    • csb490

      I’m not sure what images aren’t loading. Our slideshows use CSS and Javascript; they do not require flash. Regular images are usually .jpg files. Give me an example of what doesn’t load and I’ll see what can be done.

  23. quick sale scotland

    I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing problems with your site.
    It appears as though some of the written text within your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them
    too? This might be a problem with my browser because
    I’ve had this happen previously. Kudos

    • csb490

      The website uses a fixed window width. If your browser is less than that you should get a horizontal scrollbar to appear — same for vertical height. Mobile web browsers all react differently. My android scales the page to exactly fit.

      Hope this helps.

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s

    I must say you’ve done a fantastic job with this. Also, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Firefox.
    Excellent Blog!

    what the theme is called. Cheers!

    • csb490

      The site uses the free version of the Adventure theme — rather old I’m afraid.

      Yes, I did the site myself, using material from our museum and with the help of the knowledgeable OIRM staff! It is a hybrid — the blog is WordPress and the rest is html and php.

    Hello this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG
    editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding
    expertise so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    • csb490

      You don’t have to use any html with wordpress, but it helps to know some if you want to tweak things.

  45. Christopher J. Waalkes

    Good Morning,
    I have family pictures of homes, construction camps, and Sugar Loaf Mountain related to Christopher Columbus Howell who also worked as a labor gang foreman for the W. H. Denison in Cushman. The photos of the construction camps, farming, or railroad camps are signed by “Coyle”. Be glad to share them with the museum if interested.
    Cheers, Chris

    Thank you for your interest.

    The Museum will email you at your yahoo address with further information.

    To Whom It May Concern:
    I am a new faculty member at Lyon College in Batesville, Arkansas. I will be teaching in the art department beginning this August. I am relocating from New Haven, Connecticut. I like to make local history a heavy component of my photography courses. When I taught in New London, CT, my students researched historical sites and monuments in the town and made photographic montages of them, wrote a short paper about the site or monument, then exhibited in a group show at various venues in the town. I would like to continue this tradition in Arkansas with my Lyon students. While teaching at Mitchell College, my students were able to take a class field trip to the New London Historical Society and view different items that the NLHS housed in glass and listen to the director speak for 20 minutes or so about especially interesting spots in the town. I was hoping I could arrange a similar field trip for my Lyon students and have them visit the Old Independence Regional Museum. I look forward to hearing from you. Have a great weekend!
    Warm Regards,
    Morgan Page

    I visited your museum in October and wanted
    to purchase the booklet Chronicles of Batesville but you were out. I left my telephone number and name to please contact me when you received a shipment. If you have it now would you reserve a copy for me and contact me regarding mailing and cost. Thank you.
    Our party of 4 enjoyed the museum.

    • csb490

      We have your information. The booklets were received yesterday. Someone should contact you about cost and shipping within the next week or so. If you haven’t heard in 7-10 working days you can leave another comment and I will follow-up.
