The Drew County Historical Society is hosting a special viewing of the AETN program Bayou Bartholomew on Sunday, June 9, 2013 at 2:30 p.m. The meeting will be held at the Forest Resources Conference Center, Room A102. Chuck Dovish of AETN and Curtis Merrell of the Bayou Bartholomew Alliance will be on hand to answer questions about the program. Two years in the making, the one-hour documentary on the world’s longest bayou, was supported by the efforts of local researchers, the Drew County Archives and the University of Arkansas at Monticello.
This photo of a meteor from the Geminid Meteor Shower was taken over Monticello Friday morning by a MLive reader.
Thanks for sharing the photo.
Remember the old “one of these things doesn’t belong here” line from Sesame Street?
That seems to be the case, as a loaded log truck was photographed turning from East Shelton St. onto S. Main, recently.
Cherry Street is open to log trucks. Old Dermott is not. Shelton St. appears to fall into that “undecided” category.
Bennie Ryburn III took these photos of the I-69 construcion sites, over the weekend from his plane, and offered to share them with MLive readers.
The third annual Polar Plunge was a great success, and the $10,000 goal was surpassed thanks to all that took the icy plunge to raise money for the Special Olympics. The funds after the Plunge totaled $10,384.57.
Super plungers Jason and Karen Caldwell made their 24 plunges in 24 hours and upon testing the temperature of the UAM pond water with her foot before plunge #1, Karen said, “The water is the same temperature now (at 10:00am Friday morning) as it was in the middle of the night last year.”
The cold temperatures and wind gusts didn’t stop plungers from showing up and freezin’ for a reason. At least 75 individuals showed up, and many in outrageous and theatrical costumes, to take a dive into the frigid waters.
This year’s Polar Plunge turn out and support is just another example of how Monticello residents pull together for a great cause.
Recent photo of birds disturbed by passing traffic at the Monticello Airport.
Drew County’s Branch Number 6042 of the NAACP recently held it’s annual banquet at the Monticello High School cafeteria. The theme was “Living in the Shadow of the Dreamer” and honored special local authors from Monticello who had dared to dream of becoming authors and had stepped out and been successful.
The Woods of Monticello held a Purple Balloon release last week .
They released 100 purple and white balloons in recognition of November as “National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month”. Staff, residents and community members joined in to release the purple balloons. People were asked to pray for family members and their love ones who have this disease. There is a licensed Alzheimer’s Unit at The Woods and they encourage you to come and tour their facility. Call Pam Leeper at 870-367-6852 with questions.
When the family came into town, they were welcomed by around 30 of their family members, friends, and supporters, at Ray’s parking lot with signs and banners, saying “Welcome Home, Baby D, & Family.”
