Gov. Mike Beebe visits WR
"This area's greatest strength is its people," Governor Mike Beebe said in an interview at The Times Dispatch last Wednesday with reporters from The TD and the Pocahontas Star Herald. He was in Walnut Ridge to attend an evening fund-raiser in his honor.
"The people have strong ties to each other and to their towns. I grew up in Jackson County, so I'm familiar with these ties and hopes for the future of this area."
Another strength he spoke of is the transportation infrastructure in Northeast Arkansas, which he said is getting better and getting closer to reaching the Missouri state line.
