In the spotlight
The TD received official notification this week that Walnut Ridge's Harold Johnson is one of three people who will be inducted next month into the Arkansas Aviation Hall of Fame.
The Arkansas Aviation Historical Society will host the ceremony on Thursday, Nov. 9, from 6-8:30 p.m. in the CALS (Central Arkansas Library System) Ron Robinson Theater in Little Rock. Tickets are available at The Arkansas Aviation Historical Society website.
Harold Johnson is best known today as the board president and face of the Wings of Honor Museum, which is preserving the history of the World War II Army Flight Training School in Walnut Ridge.
Pictures of the Past
This 1907 postcard shows several wagons with bales of cotton in Hoxie near where the current Post Office is located. The white wooden buildings in the background are businesses along Texas Street between Memphis and Case Streets. By 1914, all the wooden buildings had been replaced with brick businesses. This photo, along with many other photos and artifacts, is being exhibited at the Arkansas State Capitol until Nov. 15 as part of an exhibit on the history of Hoxie. The Capitol is open weekdays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on weekends from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (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.)
