Remember to shop
our home county first

Charles Snapp of the Lawrence County Tourism Committee is never at a loss for words. With a crowd gathered Sunday evening for the lighting of the Christmas tree in the Beatles Park and for the announcement of the $200 merchant shopping spree winner, Charles took the opportunity to speak.

He encouraged everyone to shop in our home county first, as this not only helps local merchants but also generates sales tax dollars that help our county progress.

He also gave an update on the continued fund-raising efforts to build the guitar walk and made announcements about the video Santa messages and the giveaway of a 42-inch flat-screen TV in connection with Beatles Park.

We applaud the efforts of the organizations, Downtown Walnut Ridge and the Tourism Committee, as well as others to revitalize the downtown area.

Local merchants went to a lot of effort to offer incentives and attractions to encourage shoppers to Sunday's Christmas open house. They deserve our support, and as Charles said, shopping our home county first can make a positive difference to our county.


As Thanksgiving approaches, we are on the verge of many special holiday events. The Northeast Arkansas Chorale is getting ready for their annual Christmas concert, while various communities around the county are announcing parade plans. Hoxie is planning several events before and after their parade with the fourth annual "Dickens in the Park" and "Dickens Wonderland" afterwards in the Hoxie Service Center.
