DeWitt has been on the receiving end of a recent business boom. New businesses are opening while others are expanding. The people of DeWitt are still chattering about the recent opening of the new restaurant Kelly’s on the Square, and just around the corner, Funcessories Too boasts its new sign to go along with their expansion. Pierce & Company recently opened their new branch in town, an expansion from the one in Stuttgart. Everyone is looking forward to the opening of the new building expansion for Carter’s Building Supply, as well as the new larger building for Dollar General. Along with the expansions in DeWitt, St. Charles’ White Ink has four new gas pumps and Gillett’s Flash Market is reopening. It already looks like 2013 will be a prosperous year for DeWitt and the surrounding areas.

Best of DeWitt- Educator of the Year Jeanne McCullars, Phillips Community College

BY VALENYA FRANKS EDITOR dewit00@centurytel.net

Jeanne McCullars, the PN Nursing Coordinator/ Instructor at PCCUA has been with the De Witt campus of PCCUA since 2000. Before she came to PCCUA she was a RN in Little Rock where she helped deliver babies and she also worked at Crestpark in DeWitt. “We were thrilled when she came.” Carolyn Turner, DeWitt Campus Vice Chancellor at PCCUA states. When she came to PCCUA, the PN program was in a transition. Under her leadership, along with Al-

lied Health Dean, Amy Hudson and with the help of Shannon McKewen and Renee Moss, the practical nursing program has been transformed. The curriculum has been updated, a Boot Camp for nursing students is held as they enter the three semester programs, instructors tutor students after class and a simulation lab has been added with a computerized patient who can have a baby, a heart attack, etc. The program completion rates and the pass rates with the State Board of Nursing are amazing. Jeanne is very organized. She also coordinates the PN

program in Helena. There are currently 12 to 15 PN students at the DeWitt campus and a few more than that at the Helena campus. She is very committed to the students and wants every student to be successful. Along with the PN program, Jeanne participates in the annual career fair. “She always has neat, hands on activities that captures the students attentions.” Carolyn Turner informs. She also participates in the Dumas recruits. Jeanne’s most recent project includes a display that has the history of Ricebelt and PCCUA PN programs that she presented to the

McCULLARS state board of nursing. It is currently on display in Little Rock. A UCA graduate, Jeanne is originally from DeWitt where she graduated from DeWitt High School.

Berry “Pre-Coon Supper Reception” to Continue as Scholarship Fundraiser Bi-partisan Event to Honor Congressman Berry, Public Service Mitch Berry, son of former Congressman Marion Berry, announced today that the “Pre-Coon Supper Reception” will again be held before the annual Gillett Coon Supper. Beginning this year, the event will serve as a fundraiser to provide an endowed scholarship to a student at Arkansas State University (ASU). “Last year we decided at the last minute to continue the tradition, and we were really amazed at the turnout,” said the

younger Berry. “Democrats continued to show up, and a lot of Republicans came to see what coon really tasted like.” “As you know, Dad was not able to attend last year due to his health, so I think the Republicans felt safe showing up. “I hope people of all political stripes will show up for the reception again this year to support this bi-partisan cause, and then go to the Coon Supper to support the community of Gillett.” The Marion and

Carolyn Berry Scholarship will be awarded to a qualifying ASU student who shows an interest in public policy and public service. A primary focus of the scholarship will be to encourage the next generation of leaders to participate in public service through internships with a member of the Arkansas congressional delegation. The Gillett Coon Supper is hosted by the Gillett Farmers and Businessman’s Club and has long been a required stop

on the Arkansas political circuit. President Bill Clinton attended the event every year he served as governor. Arkansas Governor Mike Beebe claims his political career started at the “Pre-Coon Supper Reception” at the Berry house when he first ran for the State Senate in 1982. The reception will start at 3:30 that afternoon at the Berry farm shop. Tickets will be $30 each. Additional sponsorship opportunities are available. The Coon Supper begins at the Gillett Auditorium at 6:30 p.m.

One year ago. 365 days. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when this â&#x20AC;&#x153;Journey Through Grief â&#x20AC;? began after coming home that Sunday morning and finding Margaretâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lifeless body on the bathroom floor. As Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve said numerous times since that life-changing day, nothing can prepare you for something like thatâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;especially when it was so sudden, so unexpected since she had no history of heart problems. No amount of study on grief and death-anddying can do it; neither can having preached hundreds of funeral sermons or having stood at hundreds of gravesides. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just something you know (cognitively) will happen, but youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re never prepared for it. Truly, as someone once said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;When it comes to dying, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all amateurs.â&#x20AC;? So true, so true. That certainly was true in my case. Nothing had prepared me for the mental fog that accompanies such shock; neither was I prepared for the â&#x20AC;&#x153;deep darknessâ&#x20AC;? that surrounds you when your worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been turned upside down. But, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a part of Grief and something that must be experienced or enduredâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and not something that can be escaped, though many try to do so through denial in various ways. No, during this year-long Journey Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve tried to embrace my Grief, considering it a normal process we all go through. Even then, I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t prepared for othersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; reactions to Margaretâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passing, particularly as it related to me and particular decisions I would make. PAGE TWO In some ways, you feel like youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re living in a fishbowl. It seems like everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s watching you. . .to see how youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing. . .offering suggestions (and criticisms), etc., all in an attempt to be helpful. But, it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long for me to realize that sometimes their words/actions, though well-intended, were downright hurtful. Really hurtful. And, whether they realized it or not, they made the Journey more painful, not less so. No doubt this was particularly amplified in my case since I was a pastor and somewhat expected to â&#x20AC;&#x153;have it all together.â&#x20AC;? And, no amount of trying to be transparent in this process seemed to lessen such unrealistic expectations, whether it be from family or friends. Again, I knew I was under close scrutiny and it seems like even the closest of friends and relatives thought they knew how to run my life better than me. And, even though I tried to accept their gestures as graciously as I knew how, it still didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem

to helpâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which caused my already-grieving heart to be wounded even more. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad that Jesus is what someone once called â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Wounded Healer.â&#x20AC;? Even a casual reading of Is. 53 adds credence to this conclusion and helped me to remember that Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been treated the same way (and much worse) during His time here on earth. So, throughout the ensuing months after Margaretâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Home-going I found great consolation in knowing that Grief (for whatever reason) is a part of â&#x20AC;&#x153;the fellowship of Christâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suffering and our being made conformable to His Deathâ&#x20AC;? (Phil. 3:10b). And, in reality, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only way we can really â&#x20AC;&#x153;know Him and the Power of His Resurrectionâ&#x20AC;? (v.10a). As I mentioned earlier in this Journey, the Lord was gracious to me and brought someone else into my life to walk with me as I journeyed out of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Valley of the Shadow of Death.â&#x20AC;? How thankful I am for this one who came alongside of me and pledged to be with me â&#x20AC;&#x153;until PAGE THREE death we do part.â&#x20AC;? Without a doubt, her loving presence, words of reassurance and prayers have helped bring healing to my soul, although there will always be a part of me that will grieve over Margaretâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s absence. Again, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know someone for 40 years and spend 38+ years of your life with her and not miss her when sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suddenly no longer there. But, God is Faithful. And, His Grace is sufficient. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why I can write these words on the first anniversary of Margaretâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Home-going and give thanks to God from Whom all blessings flow. 2012 will definitely go down as a year of great changes in my life. Like Abraham, I realize anew what it means to â&#x20AC;&#x153;go without knowing where Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m goingâ&#x20AC;? (Heb. 11:8); yet, Faith always knows with Whom itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why I can face the future unafraid. Even though I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what the Heavenly Father has in store for Debbie and me in 2013, I know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be good (Jer. 29:11; Rom. 8:28). Even though I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know where Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll lead us, I know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll ultimately be where He wants us to be and Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll use us there for His Glory and othersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; eternal good. Amen and amen. (NOTE: If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to contact Bro. Tom or receive his daily e-mail devotional, entitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Morning Manna,â&#x20AC;? you can write him at P.O.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Religion, the Devilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Substitute for Christianityâ&#x20AC;? By William Wood To understand the title of this sermon we need a definition of what â&#x20AC;&#x153;religionâ&#x20AC;? is! As our title implies, it is something he has tried to replace Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Born Agaim Church with. Religion is to be found in people who do not have the spirit of Christ in them, which means they are not â&#x20AC;&#x153;converted.â&#x20AC;? They are as Peter and the other disciples were before they went to the Upper Room and received the Holy Ghost. They were Religious, but did not, Ar get, have the Spirit of Christ in them. The Spirit of the Lord was â&#x20AC;&#x153;with themâ&#x20AC;? because Jesus was with them,

but they were not Converted until the spirit came into them! And this truth continues until today. (Please read (Luke 22:32) It is this â&#x20AC;&#x153;conversion/â&#x20AC;? this supernatural changes that makes the difference between Religion and Christianity! How desperately we need this teaching in our churches! I have come to believe that we have more that are unconverted than those who are Born-Again! I have scripture that leads me to say that. If the people in the churches are not separated from the love of thing of the world, then there has been no conversion! James 4:4 â&#x20AC;&#x153;----Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.â&#x20AC;? A person who has been truly converted in being separated from things of the world, and the longer he lives the more sepa-

rated he becomes! But religion embraces the world, and takes it into the church! A born again person knows the difference between Christianity and religion, but one who is only religious does not understand what Christianity is! We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say these things to condemn, but in order to bring some into more light. And so we give the following warning to some good moral religious folks. You can be put â&#x20AC;&#x153;under the waterâ&#x20AC;? in Christian Baptism, and still not be â&#x20AC;&#x153;under the blood!â&#x20AC;? You can be â&#x20AC;&#x153;in a churchâ&#x20AC;? every Sunday, ad still not be â&#x20AC;&#x153;in Christ!â&#x20AC;? You can be â&#x20AC;&#x153;in a denominationâ&#x20AC;? and still not be â&#x20AC;&#x153;in the Kingdom of God.â&#x20AC;? You can be educated â&#x20AC;&#x153;in a Bible collegeâ&#x20AC;? and have their papers to preach and still not be â&#x20AC;&#x153;converted!â&#x20AC;? You can be voted â&#x20AC;&#x153;man

or woman: of the year in your community and still not know Jesus Christ personally! Yes, religion is a treacherous thing, and God would have us to be warned against taking it as a substitute for â&#x20AC;&#x153;conversion!â&#x20AC;? Religion is a person using his own will power to change his life by turning over a new page! It will fail to keep you on the right road. Christianity is a supernatural change that God works in a human heart, so that once you have it, it is eternal! Many have wanted Jesus as a savior, to keep them from hell, but not as Lord over their daily lives! He will be â&#x20AC;&#x153;ALLâ&#x20AC;? or nothing! He waits for our decision, He longs to me ALL our needs, and we have some desperate ones! Will you take Him as Lord? The Bible says â&#x20AC;&#x153;He has never turned one away that came to him.â&#x20AC;? Amen.

LOCAL NEWS Arkansas post museum hosts civil war exhibit PBJCEOC LIHEAP Fought in earnest: Civil War Arkansas, a free traveling exhibit chronicling major historical events in Arkansas between 1861 and 1865, will be displayed at Arkansas Post Museum State Park on January 3 through January 28th from 8 am-5 pm Tuesday through Saturday and 1 pm-5 pm on Sunday. Fought in earnest contains fifteen free-standing banners that showcase images from the Arkansas History Commission’s holdings. Original documents, photographs, maps, drawings, paintings and artifacts illustrate the story of the

Civil War in Arkansas. These primary source materials offer a firsthand look at the lives of Confederate and Union soldiers, government officials and civilians from 1861 to 1865. “We wanted to develop several types of materials to commemorate the sesquicentennial of the Civil War in Arkansas,” stated Dr. Wendy Richter, State Historian and the History Commission’s Director. Other Civil War materials developed by the Commission for the sesquicentennial include two books, Traveled through a fine country: The Journal of Captain

DeWitt, Gillett School Menus

Henry Brockman, and Documenting Arkansas; The Civil War 18611865, the companion book to Fought in earnest. Online order forms for these publications are available. During its 107 year existence the State Archives has actively collected materials from this crucial era in our nation and our state. Diaries written by soldiers and citizens; letters to mothers, fathers, wives, sweethearts, brothers, and sisters; military orders, newspaper accounts, photographs, broadsides, and even party invitations recount the day-to-day lives of people caught up in the most significant event in nineteenth century America. These publications and exhibit use these primary source materials to tell the story of the Civil

War from an Arkansas perspective. The variety of items represents the breadth of the Commission’s Civil War resources, while thousands more documents are available to researchers.

EDUCATION Irons Named To Dean’s List

December 2012 Library Corner

Student Art Of The Week

IRONS Taylor Irons of Gillett, AR earned a place on the Dean’s List at the University of Arkansas in Monticello for the Fall Semester of 2012. The University publishes a Dean’s List of all students whose semester grade point average is 3.50 or higher for 12 or more hours of course work.

This is a painting of a “Junkyard Jalopy” by senior Lauren Johnson.

Getting in the Groove

Rieves Named To Dean’s List

BY VALENYA FRANKS EDITOR dewitt00@centurytel.net

RIEVES Alyssa Rieves, 2012 DeWitt High School graduate, made the Dean’s List at Harding University. Alyssa is a freshman at Harding and this was her first semester. The requirement were a 3.65 GPA on 12 or more hours.

To be honest, I never saw myself working in a position such as this. Of course, I enjoy writing but I never believed I would make a career of it. Not to say that working in the newspaper business was never a thought. My true passion is photography and before I went to college that was all I wanted to do. As I began to look at colleges, I had a very tough time finding colleges that offered photography courses, let alone a degree. I decided to get my degree in business entrepreneurship because I thought, “Hey, I can own a photography business.” As my classes started, it became abundantly clear that there was a lot more to owning and running a business than I had

thought. But I still wanted to do photography! I then took my first marketing class. It was fun and I realized that with marketing, I could go into a multitude of different fields many that included photography. I had considered journalism but I had already accomplished so much in the business field that I decided to stick with that general area and changed my major to marketing. My last semester, I was offered the position as chief photographer with the student publication. I realized then that I enjoyed taking photos of events and maybe a career in the newspaper world is where I would find my niche. Graduation came and the time for job applications was upon me. Immediately, I emailed all the local papers. I then

applied for actual job openings. A few job applications and interviews later, I found a lot of jobs that I just couldn’t do. Then out of the blue, I get a call from Christina Verderosa, former reporter and one of the previous owners of the DeWitt Era Enterprise. She wanted to see my resume. It also turned out that she remembered me from Humphrey High School when she wrote a story on the renaissance fair. A few short calls later and I was being offered the position as editor of the DeWitt Era Enterprise after the purchase. I was shocked, to say the least. But many people had the confidence that I could do it and I found myself wanting to take the position more and more. I accepted the offer

and then came the wait. As I waited for the sale to be completed, I began to doubt my abilities. But I was quickly reassured and now here we are. Our first edition was small, and I’m still learning where to get all my news sources and also getting over my shyness. I welcome all news tips and even editorial pieces. We love to see what the writers of DeWitt have to share. I wrote this article to ask that you please bear with me as I get into groove of being the editor of your paper and your main news source. I know that with your help and suggestions, I will not disappoint.

LEGAL NOTICES

Public Notices - Your Right To Know Farm Bill Deal A Disaster In the waning hours of 2012, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Vice President Joe Biden negotiated a nine-month extension of the Farm Bill that the Center for Rural Affairs criticized heavily. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The farm bill extension measure attached to the fiscal cliff legislation passed by the House of Representatives late last night slashes investment in the future of small rural communities and family farming and ranching,â&#x20AC;? said Chuck Hassebrook, Executive Director of the Center for Rural Affairs in Lyons, Nebraska. According to Hassebrook, many smaller, targeted programs that invest in proven strategies to create rural jobs, revitalize rural communities and initiatives to foster a new generation of family farmers and ranchers were completely left out of the final farm bill extension. The eleventh hour deal also prevents farmers and ranchers from being able to improve soil and water conservation through enrollment in the Conservation Stewardship Program in 2013. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We applaud the efforts of Senate Agriculture Chair Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) and House Agriculture Chair Frank Lucas (R-OK) who negotiated an agreement last weekend to address these crucial shortcomings,â&#x20AC;? explained Hassebrook. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But, regrettably their efforts were set aside in final negotiations over the fiscal cliff bill.â&#x20AC;? The nine-month extension of the previous Farm Bill was attached to the complex fiscal cliff bill and passed the Senate in the early morning hours yesterday and passed the House of Representatives less than 20 hours later. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The message is clear - despite high market prices, virtually unlimited commodity and crop insurance premium subsidies to mega farms remain uncapped, but beginning farmers and rural communities are left twisting in the wind,â&#x20AC;? concluded Hassebrook. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And conservation of our precious land and water gets put on hold.â&#x20AC;?

Recycling Picks Up In Arkansas County Two weeks after itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening, the Carol Lester Memorial Recycling Center had collected 2020 pounds worth of recycling from the citizens of Arkansas County. Recycling Coordinator, Ruby Allen, revealed this total to the Arkansas County Quorum Court, January 8, 2013. She went on to state that all three courthouses in the county are recycling paper and aluminum cans, which are taken to the recycling center. All money from recycling goes back into the county. She would

like to encourage all offices to join in with recycling, delegating one trash bin for aluminum cans and on for paper. Three ordinances were approved by the Arkansas County Quorum Court. The first ordinance was the setting of the date, place, and time for the Quorum Court Meeting, which remained on the second Tuesday of every month, in the Courtroom of the Arkansas County Courthouse at 9:30 a.m. The second ordinance was to establish a Juvenile Detention Center
