There were some very special guests at Tuesday night's City Council meeting in Bryant. One of them was there to ask for the Mayor's job, but even he wasn't the focus. Several local dog owners brought their furry companions to be present at the meeting in support of a dog park in…Continue

I'm so proud, as they say, "just to be nominated," but wouldn't it be cool to win? MySaline.com is one of plenty in the blog category of Sync's "Best of the Metro" survey. I feel like a doofus for asking folks to vote, but if you don't know about the survey, you certainly won't vote that way.
The Saline County Election Commission met at 4 p.m. Wednesday in Benton to discuss the extremely close voting results from the Bryant Schools Millage election on Tuesday night, March 10th, 2015. The final count Tuesday night was 5,308 voters; 2,635 votes FOR the Millage…Continue

I posted what I could of my morning news before I had to tend to some pressing errands "in town." You may recall that I used to live "in town," but now I live on what I'll call the "outskirts." The "sticks." The "country." This means if I have to do anything that involves me going to Benton or Bryant - or heck, even Shannon Hills, which is my nearest city anymore - then that to-do gets tacked onto a cluster with other to-dos.…Continue

Saline County went dry after a Special Election in 1936. In October 1935, six local ministers gathered at First Baptist Church and decided to have a public meeting with the public to try to get it to a vote. The rules about getting something on a ballot must have been very different then, because it only took four months to get the vote and change the law. The following images are documents pertaining to the first meetings, the election announcement and the results.…Continue
I know. I don't have to ask. You don't want to hear another political ad for the rest of your days. No one changes their minds because of them. No one ends up joyful because of something they saw or heard or read in one. They bite. Our election cycle is almost over for 2014 and then the Presidential ads will begin for 2016. It never ends. Because of all that, I gift to you a video that a friend of mine just found (while working tirelessly at his job that has nothing to do with watching…Continue
