Coupled with the new rule change in the House that determined a bill approved in House committees would sit two days before coming to the Floor and the slowness of bills being filed, there was little to formally handle Friday so the Speaker determined we would not meet on Friday, January 25, but would reconvene Monday, January 28, and tend to our district work on Friday.

MLive has had multiple phone calls about the “old” Publisher’s Clearing House Scam resurfacing in Monticello, again.

Over the last two weeks, several local residents have received phone calls, where they were told to buy a certain cash card, or make a wire payment, in exchange for their “winning check” to be processed and delivered to them.

Please be aware that this is a scam, and don’t waste you time (or your money) with these calls.

January 28th, 2013 by

Drew Central Fourth Graders attended the Arkansas Civil War 150th Anniversary Event on January 18th at the Arkansas Post National Memorial Museum. The area outside the museum was set with thirteen stations. Each station had people dressed from the time period of The Civil War while telling stories.

A medicine woman, Dyan Bohnert, explained to the students how maggots had been used to clean wounds. A woman in Confederate uniform, Marde Clardy, showed photographs of women in soldier’s uniforms and told stories of women who fought as men because women were not allowed to fight. Students were given the opportunity to play townball, a game similar to baseball.
