Police Personnel and Firefighters
Posted Wednesday, February 26, at 10:24 AM

There are a couple of groups that never receive the recognition that is properly due. These fine people are our policemen and firefighters. We do appreciate these fine people and every now and then you will see awards in our media concerning achievements that they have made on behalf of our communities. We do need these special people recognized but, there is no way that we can repay each and every one of those men for all that they do for our communities...

Creating our history book
Posted Friday, January 25, at 1:07 PM

I never have attempted to write a book. There are people, who in my opinion, should be given praise for the many thoughts and ideas that it takes to undertake such a project.

Christmas beauty in Poinsett County
Posted Friday, December 21, at 1:09 PM

Make no mistake about it, our entire county is lit up in Christmas lights and ornaments throughout the county. This is such a great sign during an economic downturn that has not entirely reached its end. From Weiner, all the way to Lepanto, the beauty of the lights are in top swing at this time of the year. If you have the time, I am going to give you at least one area in each town that you can make a visit and truly enjoy, while our Christmas in Poinsett County is going forward...

As our Christmas parades are beginning to occur, so go the grand marshals that lead our parades. Our first two parades in Poinsett County came to Harrisburg and Marked Tree this past Saturday night. Both parades were beautiful and different, in their own special ways, but this year a lot of focus was around the grand marshals that led each parade. ...
