County and city governments
Posted Friday, March 29, at 12:32 PM
Across the entire state of Arkansas, county and state governments have experienced a change in the revenue streams. The revenue streams, especially within the property tax and the sales tax, in most of our counties, have taken a big hit due to the recession. The recession has caused people to slow down on their buying...
Creating our history book
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. It is a long process in many cases. Much time is made and given to the project of attempting the process of any book, and can you imagine how hard it would be, especially when you speak of history, the time consumed can become a major portion of that person's life...
Vietnam Wall coming to Tyronza
There was a saying by Christ that has always stuck with me. He once said, "No greater thing can one do is to lay down his life for his friends". This is the case of all of our military from the Revolutionary War, through the Civil War, World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, and Iraq through the Afghanistan conflict...
Upcoming Legislative Session
In only a few days, our Arkansas General Assembly will be in session. This session could prove to be a little different than those of the past. This year, unlike all years in past sessions, the Senate and also the House of Representatives will be in a majority with the Republican party having a majority in both houses. ...
Christmas beauty in Poinsett County
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...
Tyronza and Lepanto Christmas parades
Tyronza was really "lit up" this past Friday night. The Tyronza Christmas Parade began at 6 p.m. As always, there were many floats. The Tyronza Fire Department was in high gear with its involvement with the parade. The Lepanto Christmas parade began at 5 p.m. on Saturday. The lighting was beautiful during the events with the background of those old beautiful buildings on each side on Greenwood Street...
Clyde and Twila Ford/Jimmy and Melba Berry
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. ...
Christmas parades are coming
It is that time of year once more. Christmas is just right around the corner. Some of the most special items during the holidays are all of the Christmas parades we are having in our different cities. I am going to give you the dates and times of all of our parades. Hopefully, each and every one of us will be able to attend as many as possible, because each parade is special and each has little differences, that make them enjoyable to all that attend...
Our Rotary and Lions club
There is not enough that can be said about our local Rotary and Lions Clubs in Poinsett County. The Rotary Clubs in our county are located in Harrisburg, Trumann and Marked Tree. Our local Lions Clubs are located in Weiner and Trumann. The Rotary Club International assists in many projects, both internationally and local. ...
