Legislative Report

May 26th, 2016 by

ArkansasHouseOur second Extraordinary Session of the 99th General Assembly began this week and it actually began with a surprise to most of us.  We’d thought this a highway funding session, but it turned out to be much more (about 14 items more) and some more contentious.

Before noon the first day, the House Rules Committee had advanced legislation, HB 1009 that could help bring $1 billion into the state over the next 5 years for highway improvements.  Read the rest of this entry »

Memories From The Museum

May 26th, 2016 by

DrewCountyMuseumA little acclaimed story from Drew County history was brought to mind last week while I was attending a recent meeting of the Public Health Committee of the Arkansas House of Representatives in Little Rock.  A most interesting and kind gentleman whom I had just met asked about the state of the “Bottoms Baptist Orphanage”.

I recall hearing this term when we first moved to Drew County and wondering if it meant that some person from “the bottoms”, a local term referring to the Delta, might have founded the Baptist home.  However, research proved this to be untrue.

Today I want to share briefly the story about the Bottoms Baptist Orphanage, more familiarly known in these times as the Arkansas Baptist Home for Children.  Read the rest of this entry »
