LARGE OAK TOPPLES ~ Muriel Allison shows the enormous size of this oak, which fell to the ground during Sunday evening's storm. The tree, which contained several branches the size of large trees, stood at the northern end of Northwest Third street in Walnut Ridge, near the homes of Allison and Kenneth Guthrie. Allison said the tree was an Overcup Oak and was one of the largest and oldest in town. Luckily, the tree did no damage other than breaking a small power line.
