County Misses Major Winter Weather Most Precipitation Gone Before Freezing Temperatures Finally Move Into Area

RISON - While there were some incidents of motorists sliding off icy highways, Cleveland County seems to have come through the winter storm that hit Arkansas over the past week nearly unscathed. The storm system moved into the county last Friday morning, sending temperatures plunging to near freezing by late afternoon. However, by the time the temperature did hit the freezing mark, most of the precipitation had already fallen in the form of a cold rain or a rain/sleet mix. In anticipation of the winter weather, the Woodlawn School District canceled classes last Friday. The Cleveland County School District started school but dismissed before 10 a.m. as sleet and rain created an icy slush on the streets of Rison. Cleveland County Judge Gary Spears said he was not aware of any

power outages across the county as a result of the storm, and there were no reports of problems with trees from ice accumulation. He did say they had some reports of vehicles sliding off roads beginning Friday morning. “We were lucky,” Spears said. “It was just right on the brink (temperature wise) of having some major problems.” Spears said the biggest road problems actually occurred Sunday morning when the light sleet that fell Saturday night began freezing to the roads surfaces, leaving most bridges and secondary highways covered in a thin layer of ice. The Arkansas Highway Department was out early Sunday morning spreading sand over ice-covered bridges and roadways. Chief Deputy Gary Young of the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Depart-

ment said they had reports of vehicles sliding off the road along Hwy. 8 in the southern half of the county as well as Hwy. 79 near Rison and Hwy. 63 in the Woodlawn area. A third round of winter weather fell briefly Monday evening in the form of a rain, sleet and snow mix. A history of Cleveland County’s weather last week from Accuweather.com showed that a total .89 inches of rain fell in the county last Friday with a trace of snow. An additional 0.03 inches of precipitation fell Saturday and 0.04 inches fall again Monday night with another trace of snow. The recorded high for last Friday was 35 with a low of 26. The high temperatures remained in the 30’s until Tuesday when the temperature at Rison broke the 40-degree mark under sunny skies. A low of 22 was

recorded Saturday night/Sunday morning. The Electric Cooperatives of Arkansas reported that it experienced peak outages of approximately 35,000 on Friday, Dec. 6. Electric cooperative crews and contractors had been on alert since earlier in the week. Arkansas Valley Electric Coop-

WOODLAWN - The Woodlawn School Board mulled the possibility of making an offer on some property located directly across from the school, but in the end decided not to take any action on the opportunity. Meanwhile, each building administrator as well as the superintendent gave reports on how their on-site visits went with the Arkansas Department of Education. Both matters were discussed during a short regular monthly meeting of the Woodlawn School Board Monday night. High School Principal Jeff Wylie told the board at the close of the meeting that two houses on nine and one-half acres belonging to the late Bob and Frankie Wilson was put up

for sale Monday. He said the asking price of $179,000. The property is located directly across Hwy. 63 from Woodlawn High School. Wylie said the main house, which has a stone exterior, consisted of 1,672 square feet of living space. He said it was built in the 1980s and the interior still reflects the style of that period. The frame house located next door consisted of about 1,200 square feet of living space. In addition, he said there was a 20 foot by 20 foot shop building on the property as well. The Woodlawn School Board has considered the possibility of buying neighboring properties in recent years. While the land is located across the highway from the high

school, the board still seemed enticed by the prospect. Wylie said the larger home could be used as a residence for the superintendent while the smaller home could be used as a rental property, ideally for new school staff locating to the district that need a place to live. Finding rental property in the area has been an issue for many new employees. In addition, Wylie pointed out that the nine acres would give the district land for expansion in the future, perhaps the site for a bus barn, new gym or a multi-purpose center. Only three of the five school board members were present for Monday night’s meeting: Jason Aud, Larry (see WOODLAWN page 8A)

CHECKING IT OUT - Roy Phillips with the City of Rison checks out the lights on one of the pole-mounted Christmas decorations that is being put up around Rison. The Rison Lions Club, which has been helping maintain the decorations the past few years, reports that some of the decorations are starting to fall apart and the replacement lights are getting more difficult to find.

RISON - The Cleveland County School Board is beginning to look into establishing a new policy for public use of school facilities at both the Rison and Kingsland campuses, Superintendent Johnnie Johnson said Tuesday. Johnson said he presented the school board with school-use policies from Hamburg and Woodlawn during the board’s regular monthly meeting Monday night. He said he plans to check with other school districts as well when he meets with superintendents from other school districts across the region during an upcoming meeting of the Southeast Arkansas Educational Cooperative. Johnson said the Cleveland Coun-

ty School District does have a policy regarding the public use of school facilities, but he said it needs to be updated. For instance, he said he said if an outside group wants to use any school equipment (i.e., the kitchen in the cafeteria, the public address system or the perhaps the clock inside the gym), someone from the school needs be present when the equipment is used. Johnson said the updated policy will cover both the use of school buildings as well as athletic facilities like the football field or the baseball/ softball complex. He did not have a timeline as to when he may be able to have a pro-

posed policy ready to present to the board, but he said he hopes to have more information ready by the January board meeting. Johnson said the school-use policy was the biggest issue discussed during what was a short meeting Monday night. The board did act on two personnel issues. The most significant was accepting the resignation of Rison High School Principal Kent Baggett at the end of his current contract year, which will be June 20, 2014. Johnson said Baggett is retiring. In addition, the board also approved hiring Frances White as a part-time custodian at the Rison Head Start building.

LITTLE ROCK - Throughout his career in the logging and forestry industry, James Wilson of the “Y” community has always looked for opportunities to increase efficiency - operationally and financially - and help others do the same. On October 3, the Arkansas Forestry Association (AFA) honored Wilson with its Logger of the Year award, during the group’s annual meeting in Little Rock. “James has and continues to be someone who thinks ‘outside the box,’ and has been innovative in the use of technology to increase productivity, efficiency and safety,” said AFA Executive Vice President Max Braswell. “He has always understood the importance of the resource he’s been entrusted to utilize, is devoted to his community in so many ways and has made a vital economic impact in the Rison area and the entire region.” After receiving a forestry degree from the University of Arkansas at

Monticello, James worked as an industry forester and equipment salesman before joining the family’s logging business in 1990. When the Logger and Education Training program started shortly thereafter, Wilson became one of its earliest supporters and proponents. “He was one of our first ArkPro Loggers,” said George Lease, director of the Logger Education and Training program, who nominated Wilson for this honor. “His support of the forest products and logging sector in our state has been exemplary.” Today, Wilson uses his wealth of experience and connections to help the logging community as a partner in River Ridge Equipment, a new company that rebuilds and refurbishes John Deere skidders and skidder parts. This provides loggers in the state and across the country with an opportunity to increase efficiency and productivity. Since 1947, the Arkansas Forestry

Rison Lions Club Looks At Replacing Decorations RISON - The Rison Lions Club has announced this week that it will begin an effort with Rison Shine Downtown Development to replace the pole-mounted Christmas decorations in downtown Rison with new ones next year. Holley Wilson with the Rison Lions Club said the existing polemounted decorations are several years old and are starting to show their age as some of the metal frames are now coming apart and the fragile replacement bulbs are becoming harder to find and very expensive to

buy. She said the plans are to find new decorations that will use longer-lasting LED lights and will be easier to put up and take down. The existing pole decorations were donated by local families as part of an effort by the Rison Garden Club to decorate the town several years ago. Each of the decorations was tagged with a sign showing either the donor’s name or who the ornament was honoring. The Rison Garden Club oversaw (see LIONS CLUB page 8A)

RISON - The Cleveland County Christmas Parade and Festival presented by Rison Shine Downtown Development will be held this Thursday, Dec. 12, in downtown Rison. The parade was originally scheduled for Dec. 5 but had to be postponed due to last week’s inclement weather.

New Edinburg By James Boney Let not your heart be troubled. You are trusting God, now trust me.” - John 14:1 Living Bible Birthdays this week include: Donnie Knight - Dec. 9, Marilyn Rawls - Dec. 12, Sara Huddleston Hannah - Dec. 14, and Danny Nelson - Dec. 15. Well, we all survived the first ice storm of this season with no loss of power or life. Last week I forgot to announce the birth of Ry’Lee Morgan Davis, the daughter of Termekia Smith. Welcome to New Edinburg, Ry’Lee. I look forward to seeing you grow up. Marvin and Betty King, along with Lorene (King) Baswell donated a picture of the NEHS class of 1952 to the West Saline Community Center this past weekend and I put it in place in the cafeteria. That’s one more down toward making the collection complete again. One passing thought about the late Larry Clements, and it touches into town history: in the 1970s, some of the high school students would indulge in the fine art of wrapping the town on Halloween night. Now for you younger folk reading this, that means the next morning, downtown

New Edinburg looked like a toilet paper cathedral. It was really sort of pretty. Larry was one of the main cats in that game, and I know this because my Dad told me once he met Larry at Ray Estes’ station the following morning, and Larry still had the cardboard box from which the paper rolls came in the back of his truck. My Dad told him “Son, you better get rid of that box real fast before Lee Linzy sees it.” Of course, Larry couldn’t have cared less. Another thing I remember about Larry: he was one of the senior high school boys who would harass the elementary school boys. Now, none of them did anything mean or hurtful, but Larry loved to catch us in the boys room and hold us in so that we would be late getting back to class... and you remember those days... it was no excuses. A few other high school boys indulged in that game too, but since some of them are now pillars of the community, I’ll refrain from naming names... Larry was an unmitigated clown, prankster, joker, and all-around good guy. I’m glad I knew him. Go Eagles.

We are going to be able to help several families this year once again because of the pageant and talent show. I want to say thank you to Ashley and Justin Taylor, Richard and Julie Taylor, Jenny and Wayne Gross, Andrea Doss, LaMonica and Madison Brown, Judy Parker, Carolyn Spakes, Linda Gerard, Devon Herron, Cranfords for the drinks and the Rison Elementary School for letting us use the Auditorium once again! A special thank you to my judges who had to drive in the weather from out of town and to Janet Keaton and Diane Fore who did a excellent job getting the scores to us in a timely manner! I want to thank the Cleveland County Herald for putting our en-

try form in the paper for us and letting everyone know about the event. Also a very special thank you to Erica Rogers for being my Emcee for the night and making it a fun night! The auditorium was decorated by The Arrangement Shoppe in Rison and it was beautiful. We had so many compliments on the decorations and I want them to know just how much we appreciate it. Our sashes were made by Lisa Prescott and she did a great job also. I hope I am not leaving anyone out. It takes a lot of people pulling together to put this pageant and talent show on.

Rowell By Mary Ann Parrish This has been some cold weather. Its the kind that I don’t even won’t to get out and go anywhere. All churches had good attendance even with ice on the road. Some churches even canceled for the day. It doesn’t seem real but Christmas is less than two weeks away ready or not! Our community was saddened this week by the death of Betty Nell Wooley of Woodlawn. Our prayers are with the family. Mr. J.W. Moss of Pine Bluff who was injured when his camper blew up a couple of weeks ago passed away. Our prayers are with his family. Mr. Roy Noblitt of Conway, passed away last Tuesday. Mr. Noblitt was a former principal and girl’s basketball coach at Woodlawn. The Children’s Christmas Program at Oak Grove Missionary Baptist Church will be this Sunday evening, starting at 5 p.m. If you love to see the young ones perform and receive a blessing at the same time, you are invited to attend. As I walk back in my memories. I’m thinking of the things we use to do when I was younger. I don’t remember the first time I had an artificial Christmas Tree. I remember daddy woudl bring us a live tree home and I remember after Don and I was married, that we went hunting for one and going to the tree lot at one of the grocery stores and buying one. On Christmas Eve we would go to the mail box late in the evening and there would always be fireworks inside. I loved the smell of cedar in the air throughout the house. I can remember the smell on Christmas morning as I laid in bed waiting till we could get up. I could smell the fruit that was always under the tree., I can see the orange slices and chocolate drops and

the peppermint candy and the different kinds of nuts. Then the presents. I loved looking at my things but my most enjoyment came from watching Patti and Jeanie opening theirs. They were a lot younger than Danny and I. when we were in high school they were just little girls in elementary. Then we would all go to my Grandmother Richardson’s for lunch and all the families would be there. The one thing I most remember about her cooking was her peanut butter fudge. It was the best fudge in the world. Family was so important when I was growing up. Now, folks are living at a fast pace and seldom can they all get together at the same time. I think this is one thing I miss most of all about holidays. There were no stores opened on Sundays or holidays. Everything completely shut down, it was so important then for families to be together. Now, so many have to work on holidays and Sundays are just another day for business. At Christmas time the Jacks Family siblings took turns having everyone at their house for a Christmas meal. All my aunts and my Mom were the best cooks. I loved these Sundays when we all would get together at each other’s home. I hope as we all prepare for the holiday’s that you and yours have a great one and may all be healthy and able to be together. My Verse this week comes from John 1:3-4 “All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men.” I hope you are all able to go to church with your family this Sunday. God bless you and God bless America!

Bob Nesbitt By Bob Nesbitt Hello Cleveland County! Are we not lucky here in our county? Ice and snow caused big problems everywhere in the state with power outages and dangerous road conditions but we were spared from the worst and we can be glad of that. Although yesterday morning Hwy. 63 was covered in spots with some ice, Mary Ellen and I made it to Union Methodist Church with nine others, Robert and Kay Curry, Maurice and Martha Caldwell, Carl and Jane Pierce, Mary Mercer, Pat Ashcraft along with Pastor Garry Wiles. He said it was worse north of the interchange of Hwy 35 and Hwy. 11 and had his wife, Becky, call those who attend Mt. Pleasant and Mt. Olivet to stay home because it was just too slippery to be on the road. Mary Ellen and I want to thank those of you who called and sent condolences because of the loss of our daughter, Madonna. We know she is in a better place and no longer suffers in pain and those of you who knew her personally will agree she has placed herself, with God’s okay, at the gates of Heaven and is welcoming everyone to “Come On In, and Welcome to Paradise.” On a lighter note I never really liked the terminology “Old Fart” and I hope the following is not offensive to anyone because the term is used by just about everyone and this makes me feel better about it. I got this email from an “Old Fart” on mine and the title is “Old Fart Pride!” I am relating it to you all because I did not want to be the only Old Fart to get to read it. Actually, it’s not a bad thing to be called, as you will see. “Old Farts are easy to spot at sporting events. During the playing of the National Anthem, Old Farts remove their caps and stand at attention with their hand over their heart and sing without embarrassment. They know the words and believe in them, unlike the sitting President of these United States of America. “Old Farts remember World War II, Pearl Harbor, Guadalcanal, Normandy and Hitler, unlike the sitting President of these United States of America. They remember the Atomic age, The Korean War, the Cold War, the Jet Age and the Moon Landing. They remember the 50 plus Peacekeeping Missions from 1995 till 2005, not to mention Vietnam. “If you bump into an Old Fart on the sidewalk he will apologize. If you pass an Old Fart on the street,

he will nod or tip his cap to a lady. Old Farts trust strangers and show courtesy toward women. Old Farts hold the door for the next person and always, when walking, make certain the lady is on the inside for protection. “Old Farts get embarrassed if someone curses in front of women and children and they don’t like filthy or dirty language on TV or in movies. Old Farts have moral courage and personal integrity. They seldom brag unless it’s about their children or grandchildren. “It’s the Old farts who know our great country is protected, not by politicians, but by the young men and women in the military serving their country. This country needs Old Farts with their work ethic, sense of responsibility, pride in their country and decent values. We need them more than ever. Thank God for Old Farts!” I was taught to respect my elders but at my age (81) I’m having a difficult time finding anyone I can call my elder! HA! So many of you can remember Bob Hope who was an Old Fart (lived to be 100 years old) for his many years of performing his comedy for us but I have a special place in my memory of Bob. Just before Christmas in 1950 the 187th Airborne Infantry Regiment I served with during the Korean War was in reserve near Wonsan and getting some R&R (rest and recuperation) when Bob Hope and his USO troupe showed up and put on a great show for us. Jerry Colonna and Marilyn Maxwell was on the show and the first American female any of us had seen in over six months. Bob can only be described as a true American who gave his best to the men and women who served in the military defending this country during times of war. Those veterans who survived WWII, Korea and Vietnam will attest to the fact that Bob Hope gave them an hour or so of freedom for the sounds and ravages of war with many laughs to remember in the days to come. Here is a tribute written by a friend of mine that reads: Their Purple Hearts still pump freedom through our nation’s veins, They sacrificed for our country’s gain... Honorable sufferings, never in vain, Now and forever, they share our Savior’s Heavenly Domain. Until next time. “Remember, God speaks to you every day. It takes faith to hear Him!”

Guest Columnist

Jim Davidson The Lions Patriot Project!

In 1994 I joined the Conway Noon Lions Club. Looking back, this was one of the best decisions I have ever made because it has given me the opportunity to be of service in our community. As you may know, Lions International is the largest service organization in the world, thanks to the 1.3 million members in 44,000 clubs in more than 200 countries. Our motto is “We Serve” and our primary mission is the help the blind and visually impaired. Locally, we provide more than 100 pairs of eyeglasses to needy children and adults in our community. We also support a number of other local projects, like giving a $1,000 scholarship to a graduating senior from each of our three area high schools and the Bookcase for Every Child project. We are an all-volunteer organization, and to raise the funds to support these and other projects, we have three major fundraisers each year. We have an annual Golf Tournament, a basketball show that features the Harlem Ambassadors and our own Toad Suck Lions, and also a fundraiser that I want to tell you about called The Patriot Project. Over the past several years, our members have secured business sponsors who will allow us to place a very attractive base on their building with a bracket to hold a large three-foot by five-foot U.S. flag, and we fly these flags 10 times each year. We fly about 145 flags on various businesses all across our community. We fly the flags on Martin Luther King Day, Presidents Day, 9/11 Remembrance Day and, in even-numbered years, on Election Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans Day and Pearl Harbor Day. The cost of this service, which is arranged by subscription, is $50 each year. You can’t even buy the flag, mounting bracket and the pole for that, so the first year we don’t earn anything, but do in following years. I am here to tell you that it is impressive to drive downtown and see all those American flags fluttering in the breeze. To me, there are few things that are more beautiful than the American flag, not so much because of the stars and stripes but what our flag represents. The flag represents “freedom” that was bought and paid for by the lives and blood of countless Americans over the years since we gained our independence. It disturbs me when I see someone not respect our flag, or worse still to burn or mutilate it in some way. However, that is their right, and as I heard the late Earl Nightingale say one time, “We live in America, where a person has a right to be just as wrong as he wants to be.” It has been my privilege since we started this project to be a Lion who puts the flags out and takes them down on the holidays and observances that I mentioned earlier. Some days we put them out and take them down the same day and occasionally, if the times are scheduled close together, we leave them out for several days. I have shared this with you for a couple of reasons, in addition to the fact that I am patriotic. If you live here in my community, own a business, and would like to be a part of this project, we would love to be of service. You may contact me or go to our website: www.conwaynoonlions.org. Here is the other reason. I suspect that almost every city and town where my column runs also has a Lions Club or other service club that may have an interest. If so, let us know. We would be honored to help. (EDITOR’S NOTE: Jim Davidson is a public speaker and syndicated columnist. You may contact him at 2 Bentley Drive, Conway, AR 72034.

A Matter About Museum Bibles

The Bible is not a museum piece to be admired at a distance. It is a treasure to be polished. It is a tool to be used. It is a light to be shined. It is a mirror to be viewed. It is a sword to be sharpened. It is food to be digested. It is best to have a specific time each day. Many find it easier to study in the morning (Ps 88.13; Mk 1.35). God’s mercies “are new every morning” (Lam 3.23). Some like to study on their lunch hour (Ps 55.17; Acts 10.9). Others are night owls who focus best at night while it is quiet ((Ps 119.148). Experiment with different times to see what works best for you. The most important thing is not to own a “museum Bible.” “O how I love thy law! It is my meditation all the day (Ps 119.97).

Sands of Time By

Harold D. Sadler

3/5/1901-1/15/1985 (Column From Jan. 4,1984) (Column From Jan. 11,1984) In this day of motor transportation, I feel sure that there are those around 50 years of age who never saw a livery stable and some may not even know what the words mean. The livery stable was an important part of the world into which I was born and lived to my late teens. It was really an institution of many and varied functions in a world in which the automobile was unknown. The livery stable was built like a very long barn with stables on either side of a wide hallway. There was also a long buggy, surrey and wagon shed. The loft was used to store feed for the horses and mules. There was a large room with wooden pegs in the walls on which to hang the harnesses. There was usually a room or two with beds to accommodate those Who worked there because some one had to be on duty constantly. The livery stable kept horses, surreys, buggies and hacks for hire either with or without drivers. Before the advent of the automobile, if a young man wished to take a young lady for a drive, he hired a “rig” from the livery stable, that is a buggy and team, and did the driving himself. I doubt that in my childhood days there were more than 25 privately owned buggies and surreys in Rison. They were thought to be too expensive under the standard by which one lived at that time. A buggy would cost around $100 and a surrey a little more. For those who never saw one, a surrey was like a buggy but was a twoseated vehicle. I remember livery stables having three-seated surreys. Salesmen, or “drummers” as they were called, depended upon a buggy and a driver from the livery stable to take them out to the country stores. The livery stable also rented horses and saddles for horseback riders. Some people driving in from a distance left their horse or team at the livery stable for the night to be housed and fed or some here for even a day fed and watered their horses at noon time. The livery stable also delivered hay, coal, and other shipped-in commodities to the homes of the town. I do not know who had the first livery stable in Rison. I do know that the first one I can remember was just west of where Moody’s blacksmith shop building is located, and was owned by Emerson & Owens. The partners were E. W. Emerson and Thomas Owens, the father of Jack Owens. After Mr. Owens’ death the business was purchased by John H. Henderson, who had moved to Rison from the Calmer community. Mr. Henderson ran the livery stable for many years and sold it to T. B. Fore and W.A. Fore, who operated the business under the name of Fore Brothers. About 1914, J. H. Henderson erected the large red livery stable on Second Street, j.ust east of the present Bank of Rison. In a few years he sold the business to Fore Brothers, who moved to this location. The automobile was coming into general use and Fore Brothers secured the Ford agency. They built a garage on the west side of the livery stable. All of this has since been destroyed by fire. The livery stable served well its day and generation and left footprints on the sands of time.

the state conducting the exercise. The purpose of the exercise is to evaluate county plans for responding to a post bioterrorism event in the area. The Kingsland School District has been awarded $70,770 through a federal grant to help establish a compressed interactive video (CIV) classroom on campus. Kingsland is one of five districts that will share a $353,850 grant provided through the U.S. Department of Agriculture Southern Consortium’s Rural Utilities Service Learning and Telemedicine Grant program. The money will help buy computer equipment to provide distance learning capabilities through a CIV lab. Lloyd J. Morris, 76, of Kingsland, dies. The Arkansas Forestry Association board of directors elected Frank Wilson of Wilson Bros. Lumber Co. of the “Y” community near Rison as its new president. The Cleveland County Department of Emergency Management will hold a meeting on the three major pipelines that run through the county. The Woodlawn School Board approved a bid of $17,492.23 to buy 20 new computers that will be used in the high school computer lab. The new technology will be paid for from a $35,000 federal Rural Education grant. Last year the district used technology grant money to establish a new computer lab inside the library. Terry Young was re-elected as board president. The Cleveland County Extension Homemakers Council presented the Kingsland School District with a check for $1,000 to help replenish some of the books lost in the fire that destroyed the high school and library last May. Superintendent Sammy Hartwick said the fire destroyed 14,520 volumes, which had an estimated value of $363,000. So far the district has replaced only a small portion of the books lost in the blaze. Laura Jacks was crowned homecoming queen at Woodlawn High School. Death claims Dorothy Jane Smith, 76, of the Herbine community, the wife of Guy Smith. The Rison Wildcats were out-gained by Hermitage, but still posted a lopsided 55-19 win over the Hermits to improve to 7-0 on the season. The Woodlawn Bears ended a 22game losing streak by blasting the Strong Bulldogs, 46-0. It was the longest current losing streak in the state. 20 YEARS AGO OCTOBER 6, 1993 The Quorum Court is told about needed improvements for handicap accessibility at polling places in Cleveland County. Tommy Tooke was the leader over Mike Glover in Tuesday’s runoff election for a school board position in the Woodlawn district. Homecoming activities are scheduled this week at both Rison and Woodlawn high schools. Rain on Saturday dampened the annual “Rison in The Fall Festival.” The Wesley Chapel church building restoration is well on its way with funds raised and donations for the project. The church on Highway 15 north of Woodlawn was established in 1870. Although the county received rain most of the day on Saturday, a burn ban remains in place until more rain is received. The unemployment rate in the county is down to 4.5%. The Rison Wildcats were unable to maintain a 14-0 halftime lead and dropped a wild 23-22 non-conference decision at Gillett, as the Wolves swatted away a field goal attempt on the final play of the game. The Des Arc Eagles soared to a 43-6 victory over Woodlawn. James B. Richardson, Sr., 78, of Rison, dies. Several streets in the City of Rison received seal jobs recently at a cost of about $11,000. Mayor Jack Sipes told the city council that some of the streets damaged during the major sewer improvement project would not be repaired until next summer due to settling problems which will continue through the winter and spring. 30 YEARS AGO SEPTEMBER 28, 1983 The contractor begins drilling the well at New Edinburg for the new West Saline water system. The $2.5

million project will provide public water for many residents of Redland, Lee, Kingsland and Saline townships of Cleveland County and a small area of Bradley County. Cindy Richardson is crowned queen at the annual Woodlawn High School homecoming. The City of Rison receives a $1,777 beautification grant from the landscaping program of the Arkansas Parks & Tourism Commission. Death claims Mrs. Velma Marie St. John, 79, of Kingsland, the widow of William St. John. A brucellosis vaccination program is planned for the county. The Rison Wildcats held on to edge the Delta Warriors, 7-6. Lisa Herrington of near Rison won second place in the egg activity event at the Mid-South Fair in Memphis. Two new forest rangers - Royce Goza of Fordyce and Houston Johnson of Hamburg - are assigned to the county. This brings the staff for the forestry service in the county to six. The Busy Beavers 4-H Club of Cleveland County was judged first place among the junior education exhibits at the Southeast Arkansas District Fair in Pine Bluff. The Woodlawn Bears got their first win of the season, beating Jefferson Prep of Pine Bluff, 14-6. 40 YEARS AGO SEPTEMBER 26, 1973 Rison voters will act Tuesday on the industrial bonds proposal for construction of a hatchery here by Valmac. Approximately 180 county fair winners share in prizes totaling over $1,800.00. At the closing of the fair Saturday night, Jeannie Phillips of Rison was crowned “Miss Cleveland County” and Lara Fore, also of Rison, was winner of the “Little Miss” contest. Social Security benefits were being paid to residents of Cleveland County at a rate of $153,000 a month at the close of 1972 for a new high. The Rison Wildcats scalped the Delta Warriors, 35-7, to remain undefeated. 50 YEARS AGO SEPTEMBER 25, 1963 A light vote was cast in Tuesday’s school elections. Directors named in the districts were: Ray Martin, Rison; Raymond Hopson, New Edinburg; C.H. Morgan, Kingsland; and Wilburn Patrick, Woodlawn. E.B. Hearnsberger of New Edinburg was re-elected to the county Board of Education. Death claims Mrs. Carl Barnett, 70, of New Edinburg. The Rison Wildcats lose, 10-7, to Dermott. The Wildcats were at the Dermott 1-yard line but couldn’t get off another play before time expired in the game. Rison’s TD was made by David McKinney. Death claims Thomas Dow Womack, 39, of Kingsland.

In the county court order entered with the clerk, declaring the necessity of the construction, one point that was brought out is that the present courthouse has been condemned and declared unsafe. State Trooper J.L. Fleeman of Newport assumes duties as a trooper in Cleveland County, succeeding Trooper Dwight Pankey. Borden McMurtrey of Rison, chief of the Statistical and Accounting Division, First U.S. Army Adjutant General’s Section at Governor’s Island, New York, is promoted to Lieutenant Colonel. Mrs. F.W. Culpepper, 74, of Rison, dies. The Rison Wildcats won over Dermott, 14-6.

60 YEARS AGO SEPTEMBER 30, 1953 A crowd of around 1,200 attended the annual Cleveland County Singing at Kingsland on Sunday. The singing was held at the school and a public address system was installed in order that those unable to get into the auditorium might hear the singing. J.W. Calaway, Rison merchant, is erecting a new brick business building on vacant lots on the east side of Main Street in the first block. When completed, Mr. Calaway will move his store from his building adjoining the Phoenix Hotel to the new structure. The new building will be located on lots which have been vacant for 25 years. An October, 1928, blaze destroyed a row of brick store buildings on Main Street, extending from First Street to the alley midway of the block. The Rison Wildcats were unable to hold, as the Lake Village Beavers won, 21-0. Enrollment in the seven Cleveland County 4-H clubs which met last week was 168 members. 65 YEARS AGO SEPTEMBER 29, 1948 There was a fine showing of exhibits, as the County Fair was resumed following a lapse of seven years. Miss Betty Ann Norton of Rison was crowned fair queen by President Horace Thompson of Arkansas A&M College. Cash prizes awarded to fair winners totaled about $1,100. A big parade, featured school and commercial floats, horseback riders, the Rison Fire Department truck and other vehicles. Also participating in the parade were floats from colored schools of the county, bearing their queens and maids. For the convenience of fair goers here, the Cleveland County Telephone Co. installed a telephone in a conveniently arranged booth. Efforts for an open deer season in Cleveland County are turned down by the state game commission. A commission official stated, “We are not ready to open the deer season permanently in your county.” The Rison Wildcats edged out Hamburg, 6-0, with James Shaw scoring the lone touchdown. 70 YEARS AGO OCTOBER 6, 1943 Effective last Friday, the value of “B” and “C” gas rationing coupons was reduced to two gallons. “A” coupons continue to be good for three gallons.

Angus Morrison resigns as manager of the Rison Water Co. Mr. Morrison will engage in the operation of a mill cutting railroad crossties for a firm. Mrs. Bertha Wheeler and Mrs. Mary Harrison of the Graywood community assumed management of the Phoenix Hotel and Cafe here. The hotel is owned by Atty. George H. Holmes. Farm fire-fighting crews are organized at Kingsland and Kedron, with plans to form more units in other parts of the county. This is part of an effort in the state to establish the Arkansas Farm Fire Control Corps. Ray Wilson of the “Y” has succeeded John Sam Wilson, also of the “Y,” as maintenance foreman on the section of Highway 79 between Fordyce and the Cleveland-Jefferson County line. Consumers will have greater soap supplies within a few weeks. The War Food Administration announced a 28% increase in soap production for civilian use. However, there will still be no excess, and soap-saving by every possible method is urged. P.N. Smith, Rison farmer, produces 106 bushels of corn on one acre. 75 YEARS AGO OCTOBER 5, 1938 Rison will vote on the sale of liquor December 9. After petitions were filed, an order was made by County Judge Dave Cash in county court Monday, directing the holding of the special election.

A proposal calls for a combined new jail and office building for the county. The upper floor of the proposed twostory building would be used for a jail, with offices located on the lower

Arkansas in the Civil War By Ron Kelley • 150 Years ago this week

One hundred and fifty years ago Brigadier General W.L. Cabell notified General Marmaduke’s headquarters of a large number of Federal forces building up at Benton. He noted in a dispatch that, “that the Federals re-enforced that place last Saturday with at least 4,000 cavalry and 500 infantry, as they were under the impression that our troops were advancing. He says that their main force is evidently at that place. He also thinks that they have only 2,500 infantry, all told.” After reviewing scoutng reports, Cabell urged Marmaduke that “they will make a strong stand there, and, if driven from there, will evacuate Little Rock.” As Confederate and Union forces continued scouting each other’s respective armies between Benton and Princeton, several military actions were going on simultaneously in Arkansas. On December 4, there was a skirmish at Caddo Gap; a reconnaissance mission from Little Rock between December 5-13; a skirmish in Princeton on December 8; a scout from Walron down Dutch Creek; a scout left from Waldron to Dallas County from December 11-13; Skirmishing at Devalls Bluff from December 11-13;a skirmish at Caddo Mill on December 14; and a skirmish at Clarksville on December 15. (Ron Kelley teaches U.S. History and English at St. Joseph Catholic High School in Pine Bluff. He is a sergeant in the 2nd Arkansas Infantry reenactment group, and has done extensive field research in Cleveland County’s role in the Civil War, including artifact recovery at Mt.

Attwood and Jack Owens are named on the county Board of Election Commissioners. 80 YEARS AGO OCTOBER 4, 1933 Cotton picking is progressing rapidly and ginning has been steady. However, there is a big decrease in ginning from a year ago. Prospects for securing a government loan through the Public Works Agency for installation of a municipal sewer system for Rison became more remote when a lack of unity was evidenced in the city council at its regular monthly meeting Monday night. Squirrel stew will be served at a district meeting of the American Legion at Mahoney’s Ferry in Whiteoak township Monday night. Large numbers of local people are intensely interested in the World Series being played this week between the New York Giants and Washington Senators. Practically every radio receiving set in Rison is in use each afternoon while fans listen to broadcasts directly from the ball park. The Rison Wildcats defeated the Warren Lumberjacks second team, 31-0, in the opening football game. Rogers, May, McDaniel and C.W. Baldwin made touchdowns for the Wildcats. Checks totaling $35,000 have been received so far by Cleveland County

farmers for participation in the cotton plow-up program. There are 1,292 cotton growers of the county who are due checks. 85 YEARS AGO OCTOBER 11, 1928 Faculties for all schools in the county for the 1928-29 term are named. The personnel of teaching forces shows few men engaged as teachers in the county. Premiums aggregating nearly $300, which were awarded exhibitors at the county fair, are being distributed. E.M. Attwood of New Edinburg has purchased a school bus which is being used to transport children from New Edinburg and on the road trip to Kingsland. He will also make trips to Fordyce at night. A downpour of rain and a field too muddy for playing prevented the Rison Wildcats from meeting the Camden High School seconds at Camden Friday afternoon in the opening game of the season. This afternoon the Wildcats will meet the little Redbugs of Fordyce on the local field. As an extension of their local passenger service, the Cotton Belt Railway has announced a motor bus service to be inaugurated paralleling their lines through Arkansas. The announcement follows the purchase of several bus lines. The Cotton Belt is also said to contemplate adding two

Woodlawn Discusses On-Site Reviews

News

I.E. Moore House Put on Ark. Register LITTLE ROCK—The State Review Board of the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program (AHPP) listed the Ira E. Moore House at Rison in Cleveland County on the Arkansas Register of Historic Places when it met Dec. 4, AHPP Director Frances McSwain recently announced. The board also nominated six Arkansas properties to the National Register of Historic Places. The 1917 Ira E. Moore House is located at 106 Amis Street. Alterations to the building preclude its listing on the National Register. “Ira Elisha Moore was a tremendously influential person in Rison and Cleveland County,” according to the Arkansas Register nomination. “Through his work in civic affairs of the community, his business interests, and his agricultural pursuits, Moore had a tremendous impact on Rison and Cleveland County. Moore’s obituary called him ‘an outstanding citizen of Cleveland County and one of south Arkansas’ leading business men’. “Moore’s importance in the community is further bolstered by the fact that schools in Rison closed on the day of his funeral.” The Arkansas Register recognizes historically noteworthy places that are not eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.

Pansy Explosion Victim Dies RISON - James “J.W.” Moss of the Sulphur Springs community (Jefferson County) died last Tuesday, Dec. 3, after suffering severe burns in a Nov. 8 camping trailer explosion near Pansy. Moss, 74, sustained severe burns when the camper he and his wife, Shirley Moss, were in exploded from an apparent gas leak inside the trailer. The Cleveland County Sheriff’s Department said both were transported by private vehicle after the explosion to Jefferson Regional Medical Center in Pine Bluff. Mr.

Moss was later transfered to the burn unit at Arkansas Children’s Hospital in Little Rock. His son, Bro. Jim Moss, an evangelist, reported at that time that his father was in “very critical” condition after the explosion. Mrs. Moss was released from JRMC after a few days. Chief Deputy Gary Young of the CCSD said their investigation found that Mr. Moss had tried to repair a gas leak in the trailer earlier that day. He said the explosion apparently occured as he tried to turn off a water heater that night.

Lady Bears Drop First Two at Benton Harmony Grove HASKELL - The Woodlawn Lady Bears bowed out of the Benton Harmony Grove Tournament after losing their first two games last week, falling to the host team, the Benton Harmony Grove Lady Cardinals, in the first round and the Carlisle Lady Bison in the second round. The Lady Cardinals used an explosive third quarter to break open what was a tight game up to that as point as they ended up rolling to a 55-26 victory over the Lady Bears. Harmony Grove led 20-15 at the half but outscored Woodlawn 22-7 in the third quarter to take control. “We just came out flat (in the second),” Lady Bears Coach Roy Ray said. “We just lost our focus and it just snowballed from there.” Jordan Wylie led the Woodlawn

scorers with 10 followed by Katie Donaldson with six. The second half proved to be the Lady Bears’ undoing in the second round game against Carlisle as well. The game was tied 17-17 at the half before the Lady Bison pulled away over the final two quarters for a 42-33 victory over Woodlawn. “They had a big girl inside who got into foul trouble in the first half,” Ray said. “She came back in in the second half and ended up scoring 11 points in the fourth quarter alone.” Ray said his Lady Bears got away from what was working for them in the first half and started relying too much on their outside shots. Wylie was again the leading scorer for Woodlawn with 13 while Allie Richardson followed with eight.

conducted a number of “exhibition matches,” which pits wrestlers from different weight divisions against one another. Woodlawn’s Tyson Hume, who challenged for the Oklahoma state championship in his weight division last year as a sophomore, won both his exhibition matches. He bumped up five weight classes to take on Episcopal’s Will Griffin, the defending 132 pound Arkansas state champion who is wrestling at 152 lbs. this year. Hume won the match by a 9-2 score. Hume went up two weight classes to wrestle 132-pound Blake Russell and won by pin at 32 seconds. Woodlawn’s Kevin Simon gave up 23 pounds to wrestle Episcopal’s Nick Hopkins, but lost by pin 2:56. Chance Johnson, an eighth grader

at Woodlawn, wrestled high school wrestler Owen Hadden of Episcopal but lost by pin at the 1:07 mark. The Bears’ Caleb Kimbrell bumped up a weight class to wrestle the Episcopal’s Will Griffin in the 152 division. Kimbrell lost by pin at the 1:16 mark. Coach Hume noted that this was Kimbrell’s first match ever and he was going up against a defending state champion. Seth Yates of Woodlawn bumped up one weight classes to wrestle the 182 pound John Michael Eckdahl, but lost by pin at 1:02. Coach Hume said it was the first time for many of his wrestlers to compete, and he was pleased with the effort. He said he felt they learned alot in their first match. “You could see the light come on for a lot of them,” Hume said.

Woodlawn Wrestlers Open at Episcopal LITTLE ROCK - Episcopal Collegiate outscored Woodlawn, 4230, in a dual team meet to open the 2013-14 wrestling season Dec. 3 at Episcopal Collegiate High School in Little Rock. Woodlawn won one match in competition and four by forfeit while Episcopal won two in competition and five by forfeit. A forfeit is declared when a team does not have a wrestler for that weight division. A team is awarded six points for a forfeit. The Bears’ lone victory on the mat came when Woodlawn’s Brandon pinned Episcopal’s Nick Hopkins in 1:52 in the 113 weight class. Woodlawn wrestling coach Dudley Hume said the Bears held the team lead up until the 195 pound weight class. Hume said that the two teams also

(continued from page 1) Reynolds and David Stover. Board president Aaron Tooke and board member Ray Gavin were not at the meeting. Stover and Aud both said they liked the idea, but both neither put forth an formal proposal on the property. They asked Superintendent Dudley Hume if the district would be in a position to buy the property, and Hume told them one option might be a lease/purchase agreement with a local bank. Hume explained that, in essence, the bank buys the property and the district leases it from the bank with each lease payment going toward the purchase price. During the discussion, it was brought up that the housing stipend the district pays the superintendent could be put toward the lease price and the Aud said the rental property could be a source of revenue as well. But there were concerns about the amount of money the district might have to sink in the houses as well. Aud said the larger home would have to be updated on the inside, and Wylie noted that the district would probably have to do some repairs on the rental house as well. After discussing the issue for about 15 minutes, the school board meeting eventually came to a close with no formal motion made on the subject. On-Site Reviews Elementary Principal Genell Davis, Wylie and Hume each gave a report on the findings of their respective on-site reviews conducted by the state last month. The visits focus on how well the school district complies with state laws and educational guidelines . Davis said this particular review team seemed to be more inquisitive than previous review teams, noting that then went through everything “with a fine tooth comb.” In the end, she said they found two discrepancies that would be considered “lower level” findings: failure to inform the parents of all students in grades kindergarten through 12 about the Smart Choice path for college-bound students, and the school

had not included language in its policy regarding how some materials in the library will be handled. Davis said they will correct the Smart Choice finding by introducing it to parents at the February parent/teacher conferences. She pointed out that the state used to only require that information to be passed along to students beyond elementary. As for the library issue, Davis said it is only a matter of including the model policy language in the school’s existing library policy. Wylie told the board that the high school was cited for basically the same two things, and that it would be following the same solutions as the elementary. As for the district as a whole, Hume told the board that the district will need to adopt some new policies to match the model policy put out by the Arkansas School Board Association. Each year, the ASBA issues a new model policy that reflects

the latest changes in state laws and guidelines. While the district has most of the major policies already in place for things like certified staff, classified staff and individual school policies, Hume said there were some other policies that need to be adopted. In addition, he said the district was cited for not having a hard copy of all the policies in place. The district’s existing policies are all in electronic form on a computer or a computer disk. Hume noted that the review team told them they must have a hard copy of every school policy in one large volume on campus. In addition, he said that volume has to be set up in such as way as to when a new policy is adopted, it can be inserted into the book in front of the old policy. Hume told the board that will probably take about two months to get all the policies adopted and the hard copy in place.

Lions Club Looks To Replace Decorations (continued from page 1A) the decorations each year. When that club folded a few years ago, they asked the Lions Club to take it on a project. Wilson said the Lions Club has discussed the matter, and they felt it was time to replace the decorations with new ones. She said they plan to contact all the families that bought one of the original decorations to give it to them after they are taken down next month. Roy Phillips, parks director for the City of Rison and vice president of Rison Shine Downtown Development, said the new emphasis will be on decorating the downtown Rison area, basically along Main Street from the courthouse to railroad tracks. Phillips said he has already looked into some decorations that will be a little smaller and easier handle, and can be mounted to the lamp posts

along both sides of Main Street in downtown Rison. He noted that one of the problems with the existing decorations is that they have to be mounted with some sort of lifting device like a bucket truck. He said these new decorations can be put up using a ladder. No time line has been set as to when the drive to seek new decorations will be made. Wilson said they plan to begin contacting some of the old decoration owners after the holidays are over. “The people who purchased the original ornaments will have the first chance to purchase the new lighted ornaments,” Wilson said. “We appreciate your patience as it is our top priority to help our downtown look beautiful!”

Christmas Parade, Festival To Be Held This Thursday (continued from page 1) He noted that there will be limited electrical power available, and encouraged anyone setting up a booth to bring outdoor grade extension cords if they need power. Parade Participants Anyone participating in the parade needs to be the Pioneer Village in Rison beginning at 5:30 p.m. to begin lining up. The Pioneer Village is located the corner of Yaney Street and Mockingbird Lane across from Trinity Faith Assembly of God. Parade organizers also want to remind all parade participants that they should not throw candy and any other items during the parade due to safety concerns. However, there will be plenty of time at the end of the parade for participants to give things away. Talent noted that their plans are to have all the floats pull back onto the

200 block of Main Street after the parade. “This will give everyone an opportunity to see the floats up close and to take pictures and things like that,” he said. “This will also be a good time to hand out candy or anything else you may want to give to the public.” The Bank of Rison is also giving away cash prizes to the top three non-commercial floats: $100 for first, $50 for second and $25 for third. Plans are to present the awards immediately after the parade.

when you don’t want to do it. But I am trying! For Christmas this year, I want a Better Now Baby, a chef outfit, and a Olympic girl outfit for my doll.

Love, Mallory Stuckey Dear Santa, My name is Dawson Stuckey. I am 11 years old. I am in the 5th grade at Rison Elementary School. Thank you for my tv you got me last year. I have been okay this year and have only got in trouble a few times. This year for Christmas I only want three things. They are a realistic racing game and hunting game for my PS3 and an Uncle Si Duck call. We will leave you chocolate chip cookies and milk for you and carrots and water for the reindeer. Don’t forget to bring presents to my friends from school, my sister Mallory, and my cousins Austin, Taylor, Cole, and Josie.

Although I’m in my “terrible twos” momma says you should bring me some toys anyway because I have my moments. Would you please bring me a new babydoll, a stroller, and a baby changing station. I would also like a tablet for kids my age. Don’t forget my sisters and brother. They have been pretty good too. Love, Brynn Lephiew Dear Santa, My name is Londyn Roshell, and I am 2 years old. This Santa thing is new to me. My sister Ashley has been telling me all about you. She said if I am good, you will bring me some gifts. Well, I think I have been a good girl. I don’t want very much. I just want a baby doll, and tricycle. Santa, will you please bring my best friend and twin Lauryn something too. She has been a very good sister. She takes really good care of me. Oh Santa, can you PLEASE bring my sister Ashley a cell phone. She REALLY an I-phone, but I think she will take whatever you bring her. I almost forgot about Drew-Drew, and Imani. Please bring them something too. Drew-Drew is always changing his mind about what he wants. So, I really don’t know what to ask for him. Whatever you bring him will be fine. Imani said she wants GOOD GIFTS. So, please bring her some GOOD GIFTS. By the way, she takes very good care of me too. I will am going to try and leave some milk and cookies for you, but they are my favorite too. I will try to leave you at least one. Londyn Roshell Dear Santa, My name is Lauryn Roshell, and I am 2 years old. I only want a baby doll, tricycle, and some wooden

puzzles. I have been listening to my sister Ashley talk about Santa and If I understood correctly, I am supposed to be good and you are going to bring me some gifts. Well, I have been trying really hard. The only times I really act up are in church, and when I can’t get my way. Other than that I am just a perfect 2 year old. Santa, will you please bring my best friend and twin Londyn something. She has been a good sister, but she is very stubborn. Please bring Ashley an I-phone for Christmas. She wants one REALLY wants one. Besides, she deserves it. Please bring Imani some GOOD GIFTS. That’s all she’s saying she wants. I am not sure what that means, but I think she needs to be specific about what she wants. Santa, I am not sure what Drew wants because he changes his mind EVERYDAY! Please bring him something because I DO NOT want to see him crying on Christmas. I think that will be awful. Santa, don’t forget about my Mom. She is WONDERFUL! She takes really good care of us. She deserves the BEST. Please don’t forget my Daddy. He is such a good Dad. He works very hard to make sure we have everything we need and most of the things we want. Don’t forget about my Granny and Paw-Paw Roshell, and my Paw-Paw Skin. Please remember Mrs. Tricia and Mrs. Tonya and everyone at Bell’s Magical Moments.

I would like to have the Skylanders SwapForce-except for Roller Brawl and Lava Barf, an iPad mini, a club penguin membership card, Magic Tree House books like Ninjas at Noon and all that I have not taken an AR test on. I would also like a picture of Mrs. Michele Hogan and a library card for AJ from Cleveland County Library. Bring something for all my cousins. I will leave you some milk and cookies, but I am sure going to miss Chris! Thank you Santa! Brayden Socia Woodlawn Dear Santa, I think we need to talk… Nobody really told me about this Naughty and Nice list stuff until now. I would have tried to stay out of my big brother’s stuff more. Peyton says that I get into everything, but I can’t help that I’m a little curious! Can’t a baby get a break…just this once! After all, I am only 1 and this is just my 2nd Christmas!!! If I do get on that good list, I would like a “real” cell phone just like my daddy’s, a remote control (for some reason everybody takes it away from me), a 4-wheeler that I can ride on, and anything Mickey. I know that we are going to have so much fun on Christmas

I would like a new phone (mom says NO!), some Dolly & Me clothes, a TV for my room, and the American Girl Saige movie. I will leave the reindeer some food. I liked the phone and bike you left under the tree last year. I would like to tell Riley the Elf “hi”. Sincerely, Harleigh Power (Age 10) PS: If I do get a new phone, I want a new case too. Dear Santa, Hello! My name is Noah Totty. I am 7 years old. I moved to Camden this past year from Rison so I really hope you can find my new home. I am trying to be a good boy both at school and home. I love my new school and my teacher Mrs. Jermany. This year for Christmas I would like a BB Gun, Star Wars Storm troopers, and a log truck. I want so much this year that it is really hard to list just 3 things. So any surprises would be great. Please remember all my new and old friends. Also remember my sister and all my cousins.
