As mentioned last week, this is the second part of a brief summary of the major work of the 89th General Assembly of Arkansas. Along with the private option health care plan, we also passed a substantial tax cut package. In fact the projected savings, or tax cuts, to Arkansans should total over $100 million. These tax cuts have been projected to reduce state general revenue by roughly $10 million in fiscal 2014, nearly $84 million in fiscal 2015 and nearly $140 million in fiscal 2016.
Award-Winning Monticello Intermediate School students in the EAST program were recognized at Tuesday night’s School Board meeting and presented an over-view of their projects and awards to the Board.
Eight fourth and fifth grade students along with their teacher, Crystal Grimes, attended the National EAST Conference in Hot Springs, where they presented their project before a panel of judges, and won two national awards.
Around 3:30 Tuesday afternoon, a distressed 22 year old man ran from the DHS parking lot, across HWY 425, and into Popeye’s restaurant.
The upset man ran behind the counter, and began throwing food and containers, before the Monticello Police Dept. and SEEMS arrived, assisted by Arkansas State Police and Sheriff Mark Gober, who were quickly able to bring the man under control, and get him into appropriate medical care.
April is considered Confederate Memorial month, and the ladies of William F. Slemons went to Campground Cemetery and cleaned the graves of five, unknown soldiers buried there. Local lore says that these men were in a Confederate hospital that was located there during the War Between the States.
Drew Central Superintendent Mike Johnston attended an Arkansas Dept. of Eduction meeting in Little Rock, Monday, where it was confirmed that the Drew Central school district had been removed from the “fiscal distress list”.
When a district works to prove their fiscal viability to ADE, the process usually takes two years. Drew Central is the only Arkansas district to accomplish this designation in one year, during this cycle.
More details have come to light, following Friday morning’s discovery of the vandalism at Drew Central High School, including a list of approximately a dozen “senior prank” suspects, and the realization of around $5,000 in damage.
Colonel William F. Slemons Chapter 977 held a luncheon on Tuesday, April 30, at the Monticello Country Club to honor four ex-military men at the Crosses of Military Service Ceremony.

In Arkansas, nearly 14 percent of pregnant women smoke during pregnancy. This Mother’s Day, the Arkansas Tobacco Quitline is offering pregnant women who smoke expanded services to help them quit for themselves and for their child. Pregnant women receive 10 free one-on-one phone sessions with a personal QuitCoach, which is a more intensive program than for non-pregnant callers.
The Arkansas Baptist News, a statewide publication of the State Baptist Convention, has named Amy Brunson, as Monticello, as their 2013 “Arkansas Mother of the Year’.
Brunson is a teacher at Monticello High School and a member of Second Baptist Church.
Monticello native David Leonard, along with the male members of All Sons and Daughters, recently led a worship service at the MBSF at UAM.
The group began forming in 2009, where they worship at Journey Church in Franklin, Tennessee. Leslie Jordan of the group was not able to attend, so this was a unique event, even before you consider the personal ties that David has with Monticello.
The center was filled to capacity with students, alumni, and others who enjoyed the time of worship.
