Well, we don’t have too many days left until the Nov. 8th election! Yay! I know I am sick of hearing/seeing the ads on television – I am ready for this to be over. Next week we will run a sample ballot of the Beebe City ballot which you will see on election day or […]

I hope you had a great Labor Day weekend!!!! Since it was Labor Day – we worked yesterday here at the news office. When you go to press on Tuesday evening – there are no Monday holidays – except Christmas and New Years. Such is the life at a weekly newspaper. I’m sure it’s worse […]
