Every third and fourth grader had a part in the production from actors, dancers, stage managers, props managers, and audience greeters. A backdrop of Agrabah was designed and painted by students under the guidance of Lindsay Harper Groce, Drew Central Elementary art teacher.

Report from the Legislature – Week 6

February 25th, 2013 by

At the end of the 6th week over 450 bills have been filed in the House and Governor Beebe has signed 76 of those bills into law. This number seems down from 2011 and that may be a good thing. However it seems to me that the body is concentrating far more on social issues and less on governmental ones. The session has already been extended and still has a long way to go. It may be time to “buckle down”. The House is working 5 days a week and even worked through the bad weather in central and north Arkansas last week.
