Congratulations, Worlow family
It is often said, and true, that farming is big business in Lawrence County. We have many excellent farmers in the county and among them are this year's Farm Family of 2017, brothers Mitchell Worlow and Jeff Worlow and their families.
The Worlows have a big farming operation in the Sedgwick area. As do other farmers, they face the challenges of rising production costs and unpredictable weather and market prices. The Worlows join a long list of outstanding farm families, including their parents, Glen and Tish Worlow, who are past recipients of this honor.
Pictures of the Past
This photo shows a pearling camp along the banks of the Black River. The Pearl Rush began in the late 1800s and continued through 1903 when Dr. J. H. Myers of Black Rock found a stunning 14 grain pink pearl worth a small fortune for the day. The Northeast Arkansas Master Naturalists, in conjunction with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission and Arkansas State Parks, will host a program titled "Fresh Water Mussels: Their Status Today, and Their Great Place in Arkansas History" Saturday at 10 a.m. at the Powhatan Historic State Park School House. (Pictures of the Past is a cooperative effort of The Times Dispatch and the Lawrence County Historical Society. Readers are encouraged to submit historic photos.)
