This could be a very powerful tool for our community. My last four or five pieces have all been written with the intent to set the stage for this piece, to gear thinking towards this conversation. 42 states currently have operational Time Banks, Arkansas is not among them.

Take a few minutes to read this piece and give me your thoughts on the idea. As always, I want to thank the Southwest Times Record for providing me the platform to discuss ideas.
