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.

Friday, July 24th, 2015

 Rumors response reaction As whatever is going to happen, Saturday draws near,  local residents are agreeing that it doesn’t belong in Drew County, and not taking sides about who is right.

In an earlier “summary” of a potential out-of-town group meeting, MLive did not use their accepted name or initials.  Again, this report will not do so, in order to “Google proof” the article.
