Ag Expo draws crowdApproximately 500 attended the 2018 Lawrence and Randolph County Agri Appreciation Expo on Friday at Black River Technical College in Pocahontas.
The event featured expert speakers in the areas of row crops, livestock and horticulture. There were also special sessions for high school students who attended the event to learn more about the agriculture field.
Lesa Walter, Lawrence County Chamber director, said the expo, which is a joint venture of the two counties' Extension services and chambers, is a great program.
Public figures to be locked up for charitySeveral local public figures have volunteered to spend the first night at the new Lawrence County jail in the "Lawrence County Citizen's Arrest Fundraiser."
A donation box will be available in the county clerk's office for each public figure. Citizens can make a donation for the public figure they'd most like to see locked up for the night. The three that raise the most money will be "arrested" for the night.

Little did he know that it was the beginning of multiple performances leading him to meet many of the Star Trek stars he grew up watching.
Shortly after earning his doctorate of musical arts from the University of Memphis, Bristow attended an Enterprise Blues Band show in Tulsa, Okla. While there, he had the opportunity to meet band members and Star Trek stars Vaughn Armstrong, Casey Biggs and Steve Rankin.
