Roads in LawCo.
suffer from rain

Lawrence County Judge Dale Freeman said the county roads are the worst he's seen them since he's been in office.

Mid last week, heavy rains blasted Northeast Arkansas, and since then water has continued to flow through the county's waterways. The western side of the county was hit the hardest with many roads washed out.

On Monday, all graders were operating in the western side of the county. On Tuesday, a few were allocated back to the Eastern side to work on some roads, which were still under water as of Monday.

Effort to clear outstanding warrants netting results

An effort to address numerous outstanding warrants in Lawrence County District Court is well underway.

As of March 30, 70 of the 358 warrants had been removed from the outstanding warrants list. Two warrants were removed due to death, while 49 warrants have been served and 19 warrants were recalled due to payment of fines. A total of $10,905.80 in outstanding fines have been collected.

Sr. class tour includes Hoxie/WR

A senior class trip for a small Christian academy in McDonough, Ga., included two nights in Hoxie and visits to several attractions in Walnut Ridge. The visit to Walnut Ridge and Hoxie complemented the trip's theme, 'A Musical-Literary Tour of the South,' with visits to such local attractions as Beatles Park, the Guitar Walk at Cavenaugh Park and an explanation of the significance of Rock 'n' Roll Highway 67.

The hospitality of the in-laws of trip organizer Annie Smith was an added bonus that enhanced the trip tremendously.

Chamber hosting Lunch & Learn

The Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce will host a Lunch & Learn on Wednesday, April 20, from noon to 1 p.m. in the Lawrence County Meeting Room, next to the library in Walnut Ridge.

Chamber Board Chair Dina Rose said the Lunch & Learn program stems from a desire to offer programs to members of the community on topics of interest to them.

Bryan Exum, area director of USDA's Rural Development Division, will speak about funding opportunities and grants for developers and small businesses.
