First Responders Keep County Safe – Twice this Week

Thursday, February 11th, 2016

Sunday morning, around 3:30, while most of the county was sleeping, the Sheriff’s Dept. began a manhunt for a jail escapee from Fordyce, who had been convicted of Murder, in 1998. The search continued until 11 am, Monday, with most offiers only getting around 3-4 hours sleep.

Monticello Police officers joined the search a couple of hours later, and they also were past midnight, working to apprehend the felon, who was a threat to the town they serve and protect. They also put the needs of residents in front of their own.

When Tuesday’s wildfire was reported, our Monticello Fire Dept., along with the Arkansas Forestry Commission, battled the blaze for over 6 hours, as the fire changed directions, as the wind changed several times, in the smoke and fire and fumes.

We need to recognize how valuable our first responders are to our community; keeping us safe, regardless of the threat that they are protecting us from.

“Not Really” Town Hall Meeting on Event Center

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

imageMany, including this reporter, were expcting a Town Hall Meeting, with lively questions from both sides of the Event Center Sales Tax issue, at last night’s meeting at the Sadie Johnson Center, as had been requested at a recent City Council meeting.

However, the event was designed to be an informational meeting, in support of the event center, by the Vote Yes for Monticello committee.

After a 30 minute presentation, members of the audience were asked to submit their questions in writing to the moderator (mayor) to be answered. Near the end of the meeting, verbal questions were allowed, but it was not as free-spirited as expected.
