Hillary Clinton said that it takes a village to raise a child.  I don’t know about that, but I do know that it takes a village to make a Christmas float that involves “Pound Puppies”!  What started out as an idea became a reality with results.

“I was your puppy.  I was the cutest thing that you had ever seen and you just had to have me.  You knew I would chew on things, and when I did, you whipped me instead of getting me my own chew toy.  You beat me because I growled when the kids in the house dragged me around by the ear or hit…

As a person not born nor raised in McGehee, I feel the need to let every person who was, know how happy I am that we chose McGehee as our last and final hometown.  The people are without exception the best you will ever find. (Oh, I would be remiss if I didn’t take this opportunity to say TH…

Very few people realize that Arkansas has one of the most envied airport systems in the nation.  Many people do not understand how airports in Arkansas are funded.

Well, thanks so much for putting another black mark against AR. You put us in the national news and set us back 50 years with your decision to take away a young African-American girl's thunder.

Kudos to the McGehee School District for implementing an education policy that provides honor students the opportunity to enroll in extra courses without risking the chance for valedictorian.  Without such a policy, honor graduates may opt out of taking additional electives for fear of reduc…

On the evening of November 24th, I was driving from Missouri to Louisiana to join my husband and his family for the holidays.  As I passed through McGehee, I noticed something wrong with his truck.  I pulled into the "Y" only to find that I had not one, but two flat tires.

I just want to start by saying that my name is David Bartlett.  I'm a native of McGehee High School.  I recently made a 77 mile trip from Harrison to Springdale to watch the 2nd round playoff football game between the McGehee Owls and the best team money can buy, the Shiloh Christian Saints.…

It is with great pleasure and respect that I express my sincere appreciation to each of you for the support we received in passing the September 21, 2010, millage proposal.  That vote, not only insured the continued existence and survival of the McGehee School District, it assures our abilit…

Have you ever had someone ask you a question and the answer led you on a journey through the past?  This happened to me this past week.  It was a simple question….What year did McGehee become the Owls?

 Every once in a while you come across someone in McGehee who, although they remain mostly at their home, still manage to have a big impact on this community. One of those quiet heroes is Vivian Tullos.

I just feel it is necessary to let McGehee know what an efficient Hospital and ER staff McGehee we have.

I am writing in respect to the article about McGehee being sued for racial discrimination.  I am not on the City Council and have never attended a meeting, nor do I know the rules the city used in awarding contracts.   However, I would like for the people of McGehee to know some things about…

On May 14, 2010, the seniors of 2010 will participate in the Graduation ceremony at McGehee High School.  This is an important time in these students’ lives as I am sure you are aware.  We want this to be a memorable and special event for the graduates as well as the parents who have support…

On Wednesday, October 21, 2009, God discovered that he had a vacancy for a librarian and an English teacher and called Ms. Minnie Lee Holt home and upon her arrival, he handed her a textbook, but she graciously handed it back and stated, “I’ll make sure that all the angels are able to speak …

Last week’s paper had a simple obituary about a 95-year old man named B. Lovett. The obituary did not say enough. This man may not have had children, but he had a family. That family was our community. “Beloved”, as many thought he was really named, was an institution in McGehee. He mowed ya…
