Grandparents' corner

Mia, three, (from top), MacKenzie, 10, and Maddox, 15 months, are the children of Anson and Valerie Orrick of Pocahontas.

Grandparents are Larry and Betty Linebaugh of Walnut Ridge and Jeff and Janet Orrick of Imboden. They are the great-grandchildren of Mabel Linebaugh of Jonesboro, Ray and Shirley Lee of Portia and Betty Hall of Wisconsin.

Frankly speaking...

A bronze statue has been erected in memory of the late Lolly (Ledbetter) Shaver, longtime director of the Cross County Library in Wynne. Lolly was born in Strawberry and spent most of her growing up years in Walnut Ridge. A dedication ceremony for the statue was held May 1 and was attended by a standing-room only crowd, according to the Wynne Progress. Lolly and her husband, Wesley Shaver, had lived in Wynne since the early 1970s, and she first became a volunteer at the library in 1975.
