Stan Jones, owner of Stan Jones Mallard Lodge in Clover Bend, shared highlights and insights about his life and the duck hunting business with members of Kiwanis. Here are some of his comments.
Stan believes in the saying, "Find something you love to do, and figure out a way to get paid for it." He started hunting at an early age.
At Walnut Ridge High School, educator Leon Neece advised him: "take the hard courses in high school and then college will be easier." Jones said he found this to be true as he attended Rhodes College in Memphis for one year on an academic scholarship, followed by three years at Arkansas State University, where he attended on a football scholarship and played on a championship-winning team as a senior.
Pictures of the Past
Harry Boas (center) and two friends stand between the Union Train Depot and the Frisco railroad tracks in Hoxie in the late 1930s. In the background, a car travels south on Highway 67, through the main business district, after crossing the tracks. The brick switch house between the depot and the highway still stands today, but the Mustang Cafe, later called the Corner Cafe, was demolished in 1982 and the Hoxie Plaza now occupies that spot.
