Local Singer-Songwriter Seeks to “Amplify” Her Music

December 1st, 2013 by

jessica faithJessica Wishard, a 2013 graduate of Drew Central High School, is pursuing her musical ambitions at the Delta Music Institute (DMI) of Delta State University in Cleveland, MS.

She recorded her first EP, “Wallflower” at the DMI this past spring under the stage name of Jessica Faith and, since beginning her freshman year at Delta State, has already received quite a bit of attention and recognition. As a Music Industry Studies major, she is an active member of GRAMMY U, an organization created by The Recording Academy for college students across the nation who are interested in a music industry career. Through her membership in GRAMMY U, Faith learned about and entered one of her original songs in “GRAMMY Amplifier,” a contest hosted by The Recording Academy as a way to help undiscovered musicians by giving their entry more exposure.

Northwest Arkansas Razorbacks vs. LSU (vs. ASU) – Editorial

November 29th, 2013 by

UA ASU LSUThe University of Arkansas has announced that 2014 – 2018 will only have one game played at Little Rock’s War Memorial Stadium each year.

During the Frank Broyles athletic directorship, Little Rock games were reduced from three games to two.  This latest decision reduces it to only one yearly game, with no commitment to War Memorial after 2018.

After last week’s new uniforms, which are as attractive as this year’s win-loss record, alienating the rest of the state is not a good choice for recruiting, attendance, or anything else (except filling the Fayetteville Stadium).

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day

November 27th, 2013 by

country church

So many times we call a couple of days in November “Thanksgiving,” without realizing how blessed we are to live in a country where we have so much to be thankful for.

We have freedom, education, the ability to go where we want to (when we want to), and the right to worship God.

Let’s make Thanksgiving be a point of view, and more than just 2 days in November.

Legislative Report

November 26th, 2013 by

Greetings from the Arkansas legislature! I hope you missed my article last week and I sincerely apologize for not getting it in on time. I was attending a three – meeting combined SREB (Southern Regional Education Board) conference representing Arkansas. I’ll summarize that meeting next week, but first, I want to say how much I enjoyed the Veterans Day ceremonies in Monticello and in Hamburg on Veterans Day. It is comforting to see so many people taking a short time out of their holiday to say “Thank you” to our veterans. With each year’s passing fewer and fewer veterans are still with us; Drew County lost at least three WWII veterans in the week before Veterans Day. I really appreciate both counties efforts on Veterans Day and regret missing the bagpipes in Hamburg. Thank you to all our veterans!

November 20th, 2013 by

zAt Monday afternoon’s monthly financial meeting, the Drew Memorial Hospital board again addressed the question of whether to build the proposed surgery center ($10,000,000), geriatric psych center ($5,000,000), power plant ($1,000,000), and allied health building doctors office completion.

Their choices are basically:
1. Build all of original projects,
2. Geri-psych unit, power plant, and offices, without surgery center; or
3. None of the above.
