NBC's new talent show, "The Winner Is," featured a young hopeful from Benton Arkansas tonight! Ben Nichols competed and, as the game stipulates, was eligible to bring home $10,000 cash on the spot if he would just push the button and opt out of the contest after the audience's vote.…Continue

Prestiged critiquer of all things entertaining (or lacking), my daughter, Grace, sat under a canopy with me Saturday in Benton, watching the air show. Radio-Controlled Air Show, that is, and it's put on annually by Central Arkansas Model Aviators Association (CAMAA), located on West Sardis Road just east of the Landfill.…Continue

I've always found left-handed people to be special in other ways, besides just writing from a different angle. Some say it's because they are using the creative side of their brain more. I'm really not a scientist and I barely passed biology in high school. I got extra credit for having a interesting petri dish when I needed my tonsils out. …Continue

I saw on the news where officials out in Colorado Springs have issued a voluntary evacuation order for parts of the city. That horrible wildfire continues to spread.

These are the folks that determine the budget and make ordinances for Saline County. If you don't vote in local elections, you are missing out on an opportunity to install people who decide laws that affect us most. Streets, safety, animal control, law enforcement, even schools.
