Author Bill Farris, of Nashville recently visited with
students of Murfreesboro Elementary. During his visit, he
encouraged students to write, and more importantly, shared
the message: if you don’t know, ask! This former teacher,
coach, and principal is now a published author because he
followed his own advice. A strong supporter of continuous
learning, Farris believes that the solution to not knowing is
simply to ask questions.
When talking with students, he spoke about his published works, many of which are children’s books. Farris
began writing at a very early age and was encouraged
not only by peers but also by several teachers to publish
his works. When he made the decision to publish, Farris
explored numerous publishing

MURFREESBORO--Central Arkansas Development Council’s Murfreesboro Head Start is promoting early learning
among its 3 & 4 year old students. The Murfreesboro High
School athletes and their baseball coach recently visited the
center and read to the children, participating in a “Reading
is Electric” campaign at the center.
CADC Head Start is a free comprehensive child and family development program for low-income families. The main
focus is to increase the school readiness of young children.
It is designed to help parents and caregivers be empowered
to self-sufficiency.
Children enrolled have access to educational resources,
as well as health and dental services, nutritional services,
and social services.
In Pike County, the Murfreesboro Head Start is located at
120 E. Court, Suite B. Call 870-285-3351 for more information.
Head Start’s services include early reading and writing,
kindergarten readiness, health and nutrition screening, vision and hearing screening, nutritious meals and snacks,
disabilities services and family services. While CADC does
not provide transportation services, it will assist families in
seeking public transportation.
To be eligible to enroll in the Head Start program, a child
must be three or four years old. The family must also meet
income guidelines. Verification of family income, child’s
birth certificate and immunization records are required to
complete an application.

Kesha Gentry and her sister Brittany White paid it forward
on Friday with t-shirts and a pizza party, as a way of thanking Mrs. Kara Turner’s 5th grade Social Studies class.
This class has supported Kesha in her fight against appendix cancer since October of 2013. Kesha’s son Ken Piggee is
in the class and they have sent her numerous get-well prayer
cards as well as praying for her regularly. Kesha wants
to thank them for always being so supportive during
her cancer battle. The get-well cards and well wishes
especially helped on her bad days.
HOT SPRINGS NATIONAL PARK— Oscar®-nominated
actor Gary Busey has created one of his famous “Buseyisms” exclusively for the First Ever 13th Annual World’s
Shortest St. Patrick’s Day Parade on March 17 in downtown
Hot Springs.
Busey, who made the Buseyisms world-famous during
his stint on television’s “Dancing With the Stars” last year,
will be the official starter for the parade at 6:30 p.m. on
98-foot Bridge Street.
“I have a hobby that’s really wonderful because it helps
me understand the meaning of one word with a sentence
that reflects the word’s meaning and definition,” he explains. “These are called Buseyisms. I take these from my
own heart, my own spirit and my own soul and make this
interpretation so you can hear it and live by it.”
The one he created for Hot Springs’ internationally celebrated parade is “I.R.I.S.H.” — INDEPENDENT. ROWDY.
INDOMITABLY. SPIRITED. HUMANS.
“We will use the Hot Springs Buseyism on posters, Tshirts and other promotions for our March 17 parade,” said
Steve Arrison, CEO of Visit Hot Springs. “You can see all of
Gary’s Buseyisms on his website — www.garybusey.com/
gary_busey_buseyisms.html — where he makes available
prints and other Buseyism merchandise. The Hot Springs
version will not be for sale on the website and will be available only in Hot Springs.”
Some of his dozens of Buseyisms include: C.H.A.M.P.I.O.N.
— CREATING. HAPPINESS. AND. MAGICAL. PROGRESS. IN.
OVERCOMING. NEGATIVITY. and F.A.I.T.H. — FANTASTIC.
ADVENTURES. IN. TRUSTING. HIM.
Actor Kevin Bacon and his brother Michael — The Bacon Brothers — will be the celebrity grand marshals for the
Hot Springs parade, and their band will play the traditional
post-parade free concert immediately afterward.
Busey, who was nominated for an Academy Award®
for his portrayal of musician Buddy Holly in 1978’s “The
Buddy Holly Story,” is well

Man charged
for robbing
coke machine
MURFREESBORO—One
felony and one misdemeanor charge has been filed
against a Royal man in Pike
County Circuit Court.
Forty-five-year-old Walter Allen Couch has been
charged with breaking or
entering, a class D felony and
theft of property, a class A
misdemeanor.
According to the affidavit
of arrest, Billy Plyler advised
the Glenwood Police Department that a Coke machine in
front of Plyler’s Home Center
had been broken into and
the coin box containing approximately $300 was taken
on December 1.
Glenwood Police Chief
Jerry Lowery went to the
business and reviewed surveillance video. A Nissan
truck that appeared to be a
teal color was shown pulling
up in front of the store with
one male subject inside. The
driver exited the vehicle and
appeared to drill the lock on
the machine. He then drove
the truck around and to the
side of the business. Couch
reappeared on surveillance
with a crow bar and pried
the door of the Coke machine open, reattached it
and took the coin box.
The surveillance camera
had captured a very clear
picture of the suspect. Chief
Lowery had been speaking
with Detective Greg Harmon from the Montgomery
County Sheriff’s Office about
the case and Detective Harmon said the same type of
robbery had happened in
Zachary R. Collins, 29 of Murfreesboro, residential burglary; theft of
property;
Rebecca N. York, 32 of Bonnerdale, possession of drug paraphernalia; possession of methamphetamine
with purpose to deliver.
Patrick B. Ellison, 36 of Huntington, ADC hold—Sebastian County;
Michael E. Sloan, 29 of Murfreesboro, driving on suspended or revoked driver’s license;
Dwight N. Hawley, 54 of Fort
Smith, ADC hold—Sebastian County;
James M. Smith, 19, possession of
drug paraphernalia; battery—third
degree with injury;
Anthony L. Inman, 37 of Oklahoma City, OK, ADC hold—Sebastian
County;
Jessica N.
Amonette, 18 of
Glenwood, do-
Montgomery County.
Detective Harmon provided Chief Lowery with
information on Montgomery
County’s suspect, Couch.
Chief Lowery discovered
that Couch had a truck
matching the truck seen
on the surveillance video.
An ACIC search provided
a picture of Couch and the
tag number of the truck that
was provided by Detective
Harmon showed it was reg-
istered to Couch’s parents.
Charges were filed against
Couch in the Pike County
Circuit Clerk’s office on February 17.

Applications for Crisis
LIHEAP being accepted
Little Rock, Ark. - Central Arkansas Development
Council (CADC) will begin
crisis intervention assistance to families with disconnect notices in the Crisis
Low-Income Home Energy
Assistance (LIHEAP) program on February 22nd. Applications will be accepted
in 12 counties in central and
south Arkansas.
Applications for regular
assistance are still being
accepted until funds are
depleted.
To qualify for Crisis LIHEAP, persons must have
a disconnect notice with a
disconnect date within 7
days of application date.
All households receiving
food stamps are potentially
eligible to receive this assistance; however, the program
is not limited to food stamp
recipients.
The program assists
households with home energy and heating bills. Eligible households must meet
income guidelines and furnish proof of all household
income for the month prior
to applying.
CADC encourages households to attend mass application assistance days to apply for assistance; however,
the program will continue to
accept both crisis and regular LIHEAP applications after
the mass intake days, until
funds have been depleted.
According to state policy
6710, CADC will not accept
mail-in crisis applications,
unless it is from an elderly or
disabled person or a person
unable to appear for some
extraordinary reason. Those
persons may also be subject
to a phone interview.
In Montgomery County,
applications are accepted
every Wednesday at the
CADC Mt. Ida Senior Activity
Center, 158 Senior Drive, 8
am until Noon. Call 870-8670151 for more information.

NAP Summer Forge Decision
Deadline fast approaching
PINE BLUFF, Ark. – Arkansas ranchers with pastures
or hay for livestock have
until March 15 to sign-up for
the Noninsured Assistance
Program (NAP).
This includes applying
for coverage on such crops
as grain and forage crops
including native forage, said
Dr. Henry English, head of
the Small Farm Program at
the University of Arkansas
at Pine Bluff.
NAP protects against
crops planted and grown
for livestock consumption
from losses due to natural
disasters such as drought,
excessive heat, excessive
moisture or floods.
For all coverage levels,
the NAP service fee is the
lesser of $250 per county or
$750 per producer per administrative county, not to
exceed a total of $1,875 for
a producer with farming interests in multiple counties.
Of importance to certain
growers are NAP fee waivers. Basic NAP coverage is
now free to all farmers who
qualify as beginning, limited
resource or socially disadvantaged. Socially disadvantaged now includes women,
said Dr. English.
Previously, only limited
resource farmers were eligible for fee waivers. To be
eligible, farmers must first
certify their status when applying for coverage at their
Farm Service Agency (FSA)
office.
Dr. English advises growers to sign-up for the program at their local FSA office.
From the Barnyard
Climate Change
I read in my Livestock weekly this
week that Dr. Art Douglas, trusted meteorologist the National Cattleman’s
Association relies on, “believes in
climate change, and the fact that the
Earth’s oceans are 6 degrees warmer
than a decade ago affirms this.”
I discussed global warming with
some animal scientists from the U of
A last summer, and all three agreed
we are experiencing global warming. None of the mentioned scientist
would go too deep in blaming any
one thing, for fear of losing their jobsyou see, global warming, like racial
issues- are hard to discuss rationally.
Hollywood blames corporate agriculture while they (Hollywood) fly their
personal jets to the Earth Summitts.
Cattleman’s Associations reject the
idea the ranchers they represent
could be contributing to global warming. And the heat goes on.
I personally believe we are experiencing global warming, and EVERYONE is contributing to the phenomenon. I also believe it’s time we
Mike Graves
Publisher
took our collective heads out of the
sand, and, like the racial issue that
divides us all, ATTEMPT to discuss
this divisive issue.(Who knows, we
might be discussing “Global cooling”
in a few years)
Here, we use recycled newsprint,
then recycle the waste paper each
week at the Howard County Children
and Adult Center. We’re not going
to stop global warming by these
feeble steps- just, maybe slow it down
enough for our grandkids to be able
to play in the snow someday.
In closing, we don’t need the
United Nations to tell us the right
thing to do-that is, be as kind to our
life sustaining planet as possible.
That’s all for this week, I appreciate ya’ll taking the time to read this
imperfect opinion, offered by an
imperfect man.
“Let’s leave some blue up above us,
let’s leave some green on the ground.
It’s only ours to borrow, lets save some
for tomorrow- leave it and pass it on
down.” -Alabama

Spring Is In The Air!
Spring is one of the four seasons, and it brings mild, warmer weather. As the Earth revolves
around the Sun (It takes one full year for it to completely rotate around the Sun one time.), the side
of the Earth you live on, or hemisphere, is either closer to the Sun or farther away. The warmer
weather is due to the closer distance to the Sun. The beginning of Spring is marked by the Vernal
Equinox. An Equinox, which only happens twice a year, is the only day of the year when both day
and night are the same length of time. In the Northern Hemisphere, we experience the Vernal Equinox (or irst day of Spring) around March 21, while in the Southern Hemisphere, on the opposite
side of the Earth, they are having their irst day of Autumn. Our Spring usually lasts until around
the end of June when the hemisphere is even closer to the Sun, and the hot Summer weather arrives. During Spring, the lowers bloom; trees once again have green leaves; plants grow; animals
become active again; and gardens are planted. Lots of people begin to spend more time outdoors,
while others “Spring” clean their homes.

Theological Reflection
“Close” Counts for Something!
The saying is: “Close is
only good enough in horseshoes and hand grenades.”
I have another category
. . . Spiritual Growth. Do
not misunderstand what I
am saying. In order to be
saved and enter heaven,
close is not good enough.
One must be “born again”
by the Spirit of God and
have his name written on
the Lamb’s Book of Life, in
order to be saved. In that
case, close is not good
enough. Jesus spoke to
individuals who were close
to the Kingdom but not
within God’s saving grace.
Be sure that you are “in
Christ” to know that you
are a Kingdom subject.
On the other hand,
staying “close to Jesus”
is necessary for sanctification to occur. I have a
new charger for my cell
phone. You do not have
to plug it in to charge the
Smart Phone. BTW, my
cell phone is sometimes
not so smart! It messes
up. Others have told me
Johnny Baker, D.Min., Ph.D.
Pastor, First Baptist Church,
Murfreesboro
that it is only as smart as
the operator . . . o.k.!
You just set the cell on
a round platform and it
glows blue and charges. I
think of Jesus’ comments
about the Vine and the
branches (John 15). In
order to have life in us
we must stay connected
to Christ. That means
staying close to Him. Positionally, we are “in Him.”
Practically, we walk with
Him each day. Staying
close implies a daily connection through His Word
and personal prayer time.
Jesus sometimes prayed
all night, especially before
Renewed
important decisions, like
choosing the 12 apostles
(Luke 6:1,2). What makes
us think that we could pray
less and still receive the direction from God which is
necessary to navigate the
maze of this world?
Staying close to Him
also implies staying close
to His people through
meaningful Bible study,
worship, and fellowship.
When we are together with
His people, we are like the
coals in a fireplace that
glow and displace heat. If
we are removed from the
bed of coals, we quickly
cool off and lose our glow.
We should be very careful
to not distance ourselves
from the Assembly (Heb.
10:25).
If you stay close to Jesus you will be constantly
“recharged” for life and
ministry.
You are loved,
Bro. Johnny

Pokin’ Fun
Lead, follow or get out of the way
Mahatma Gandhi once
said, “There go my people.
I must catch them for I
am their leader.” Gandhi
lead the nation of India
because he said clever
things like that and had a
very small budget since he
wore a sheet, sandals with
no socks, shaved his head
and his staff consisted of a
stick. He preached love and
understanding and nobody
dared to disagree with him
because he was always running behind the crowd with
that stick.
I mention this because
I recently attended a DAR
(Daughters of the American
Revolution) meeting which
honored some young leaders from local high schools
recognizing them for their
leadership qualities and
willingness to serve humanity. It was a big honor
because only one person
was selected from each
school in the county and
the votes that elected these
potential future leaders,
4 girls and 2 boys, came
from both the staff and
the students. I was asked
to say a few words to lift
their spirits to even loftier
heights, to face the winds
of challenge, to rise up on
the wings of victory and
soar with wings of Eagles…
as long as I kept it under “a
couple of minutes.” It takes
me that long to take off my
seat belt and crash helmet
when I drive the zero turn
lawn mower so I told them
a joke that I thought Mahatma would approve.
You see, “Bubba” was a
young leader eager to serve
too. He applied for a job
opening down at the Sheriff’s office. He was told that
if he answered 3 questions
right he would get the job.
“What is the capital of
Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana?” Bubba answered, “T,
A and L.” The Sheriff said
that was not what he had
in mind but had to admit
it was technically correct.
“Name two days of the
week that start with a T.”
Bubba said, “Today and
tomorrow.” Again he was
given a passing grade for
creative thinking.
“Who killed Abraham
Lincoln?” Bubba replied
that he didn’t know any-
thing about that one, wasn’t
anywhere near where it
happened and had an alibi
for whenever it was.
The Sheriff told him
to go home, do some research on it and if he could
find out the name of the
culprit within a week to
come back and he would
be considered for the job.
Bubba went straight to the
Livestock Auction Café to
celebrate. He ordered a
chicken fried steak, chicken
fried French fries, a side order of lard and a diet coke
to celebrate. His buddies
asked how the interview
went and he said, “I don’t
like to brag but they asked
me a couple of questions
and I did so well that they
already got me working on
a murder case.”
Bubba got the job, mopping floors in the jail. In his
own way he serves and
leads. Be proud of what you
do. www.docblakely.com
‘Dear Preacher’
By tommy mounts, murfreesboro Church of Christ
Dear Preacher: “I have
heard it said that, if you
are on vacation and unable to attend church,
it is okay if you take
the Lord’s Supper with
you. But what about all
the other things in our
Sunday worship? What
makes the Lord’s Supper
more important?”
Read Luke 22:19-20
when Jesus gave the
Lord’s Supper. Also, the
apostle Paul said that we
do this “in memory” of
the Lord. So, the Lord’s
Supper is a memorial,
in which we show our
gratitude, or reverence
and our faith in Him as
our Savior. And we gather on the first day of the
week, as the Scripture
says (Acts 20:7).
But to say that the
Lord’s Supper is more
important than the
preaching (Acts 20:7),
the singing (Eph. 5:19),
praying (Acts 2:42), or
our giving (I Cor. 16:
1-2) is to presume to
speak for God- for God
never said that! Is your
heart more important
than your liver, or your
lungs? You can’t just

choose that way, for
they are all vital. The
same principle is true
with worship. There
may be times when it is
impossible to meet with
a local congregation of
the Lord’s church ( a
good example is Paul as
he traveled into Europe,
where no churches yet
existed). But if you do
travel to places where
there is no church, I suggest you have a worship
assembly with all five of
the above mentioned
acts included.

Daisy currently looking for Pike County District Court docket
ways to improve city park
Pike County District
Court Docket from Feb. 18.
DAISY – The Daisy City Council is investigating ways to maintain their city park in
cost efficient ways.
The plan is to have an adopt-a-site
program for Crawford Park in which community volunteers can assist in the care
and maintenance of the premises, including the ten picnic sites.
The program literature states that
the city is soliciting the support of volunteers because “Daisy does not have
the monetary or man power to provide
regular maintenance for the park” and
that “adopter volunteers will “clear small
debris, pick up litter and promote the
park’s welfare and appearance.”
The city has opened the adoption program to any civic organization or individuals that may be interested and the adoption period will last one for calendar year.
Volunteers will be asked to monitor
their area once a week, including such
duties as maintaining grills and burn rings,
checking trees for signs of illness and
dead limbs, picking up litter, keeping park
sins clean and visible, removing graffiti
and painting picnic tables as necessary,
reporting new damage from vandalism/
storm damage/flooding, and using personal power tools as necessary.
The city will provide trash bags, paint
and other materials for certain projects
as deemed necessary, as well as the removal of gathered trash and recyclable
materials.
Those interested in more information,
volunteering and or making a donation to
the cause can contact Daisy Mayor Ronnie
Partee and (501) 622-7739 or mail the City
of Daisy, 15 Huey Park, Kirby, AR 71950.
There is an application and waiver that
must be filled out before volunteerism
can legally begin.
Sites and facilities will be adopted on
a first come first serve basis, and the city
reminds volunteers that the park is always
open to the public, and that volunteering
does not guarantee preferential use of the
facilities.
The City hopes to by the end of 2016 to
replace all the grills in the park.
The annual park cleanup hosted by the
City of Daisy will be held on April 2 from
7 a.m. until the work is done. Part of the
work will, if possible, include the removal
and burning of large logs.
In addition, the Daisy Volunteer Fire
Department will schedule a Firewise
program sponsored burn off of some of
the park’s overgrowth, according to local Fire Chief Scotty Frazier. He said the
window to do so was small, because the
event needed to occur while there were
still small numbers of people on the lake.
DAISY – The Daisy City Council completed the third and final reading of a
ordinance prohibiting the use of engine
“jake” brakes on vehicles over one ton
inside city limits, which should have allowed the measure to became law.
However, the city tabled the measure
without its passage, pending a conversation between Mayor Ronnie Partee and
Pike County Sheriff Charlie Caldwell.
As the City of Daisy employs no police
force, the mayor will seek assistance
from the PCSO about help in enforcing
the issue.
“Without their help, we are just spitting
in the wind,” Partee said of the ordinance.
While the council generally agreed with
the tabling, the intent of the measure to
help curb the truckers who “just want to
be seen and heard,” especially at 3 or 4 in
the morning, waking the city’s residents.
The council, who normally stuffs eggs
for the city sponsored Easter egg hunt, has
decided this year to purchase pre-stuffed
eggs, for the most part. Each member of
the council donated $20 each toward the
purchase of eggs and supplies.
While the purchase of 500 pre-stuffed
eggs for $75 will comprise the bulk of the
surprises, a few eggs will be added that
include special prizes.
It was announced to the council that
the city is currently undergoing its biennial state mandated audit, and that some
of the paperwork normally accessible by
the city will be in the auditor’s possession
for a time.
The council will open bids for mowing services of the city park and the volunteer fire department location at their
next meeting on March 14. The deadline
for entering a bid is April 1. See the legal
notice in this week’s Glenwood Herald
for more specific information about bid
submission.
Alderman Becky Frazier made a motion
that fire department donations be placed
in a separate auxiliary bank account under
the guise of the city, but more accessible
by the organization in times of need. The
measure was passed unanimously, with
City of Daisy Fire Chief Scotty Frazier, City
of Daisy Recorder/Treasurer Hortense
Young and Alderman Theresa Wilder to
be placed on the signature card.
Chief Frazier also updated the council
on the possibility of some large expenses
coming the city’s way in the form of changes in properly outfitting first responders.
Following the shooting death of a Pulaski County volunteer fire fighter – acting
as a first responder in a medical emergency --earlier this year, Frazier said the
state would be considering changes such
as official shirts, bulletproof vests and
prohibiting the use of personal vehicles
to respond to calls.
The city was told in December that due
to new specifications, the fire department
would be forced to purchase and use new
digital radios by 2017, at an expense nearing $500 each. Frazier proposed the city
purchase the radios and receive training
in the use from Bates Sales and Service
in Mount Ida.
