Tuesday, September 20, 2016, 6 p.m. Free admission, no tickets required A born explorer, Wendy Simmons was thrilled when she was granted a rare entry visa to North Korea, despite the country’s penchant for detaining tourists. In her book, My Holiday in North Korea: The Funniest/Worst Place on Earth, Wendy offers a glimpse of North Korea as it has never been seen before. For ten days, she hurtles through the country with two female “handlers.” During the Gaston Lecture presentation, Wendy will chronicle one of the strangest vacations ever through poignant and laugh-out-loud stories, accompanied by stunning photographs and will offer a revealing glimpse into a secretive land. Wendy won’t stop traveling until she visits every country in the world. Despite her hatred for packing, she’s managed to explore more than eighty-five so far – including territories and colonies – and chronicles her adventures on her blog, wendysimmons.com and on Huffington Post. Her writing has also been published on Travel & Leisure, PopSugar MSN, and Yahoo. She is president of Vendeloo, a consultancy she founded in 2001, Chief Brand Officer of a NYC-based global eyewear brand, and an award-winning photographer. She graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from George Washington University. All Gaston Lectures are open to the public with free general admission seating. Jim and Jill Gaston of Gaston’s Resort on the White River endowed the ASUMH Gaston Lecture Series in 1997 to challenge individuals to think, reason, and learn. The Gaston Lectures, which are held each fall and spring semester, will forever serve as a reminder of his generosity.

James H. Baker, Long Time Baxter County Judge, to Speak to Historical Society James H. Baker, who served Baxter County as judge for twenty years from 1961 to 1980, will be the guest speaker for the Tuesday, September 27 meeting of the Baxter County Historical and Genealogical Society. Judge Baker will speak on “My Life and My County.” “I was elected in eleven races,” says Baker, talking about what contributed to his long service as Baxter County Judge. He acknowledges, of course, that in a few elections he was unopposed, but he views his repeated successful runs as a sign that the public approved of his service as the administrator of county government. A Baxter County native, James Baker attended Big Pond School as a boy, and went through high school at Horace Mann School in Norfork. He remembers that he began to think about participating in local government as early as the fifth grade, when he heard B. B. Foster, County Superintendent of Schools, talk on public service during a school assembly. It was Baker’s goal from then on, one which he later achieved with great success. During his tenure as Judge, Baxter County was the fastest growing county in the state. His success as Baxter County Judge for 20 years led to the naming of the James H. Baker Law Enforcement Building, where the Sheriff’s Department is headquartered, in his honor. After retiring from the position of Baxter County Judge in 1980, Baker was appointed by the Governor to serve in the Association of Arkansas Counties. He worked there for 20 years as well, the last 12 as Executive Director of the Association. Judge Baker retired in 2001 at age 70. He currently resides in Little Rock. Along with speaking to the Historical Society, Judge Baker will be presenting the collection of papers associated with his time as County Judge for inclusion in the Society’s archives in the Heritage Center at 808 Baker Street. Members of the Historical Society are eager to hear the memoirs of Judge James H. Baker. The public is invited to attend the meeting, which will be at 6:00 p.m. Tuesday, September 27, in the Knox Room of the Donald W. Reynolds Library Serving Baxter County. Admission is free and guests are always welcome. Call the Society at 870-425-2551 for information.
