A reminder -- the Leachville Watermelon Festival is coming up on July 26 and it sounds like there will be something for all ages. It was brought back to Leachville last year with Jerred Price taking the lead in getting it back. He is serving as chairman again this year. It should be a good way to spend a Saturday.
I want to thank everyone who voted on the poll question. Results from the last one showed 49 votes cast. 38 voted yes they think an Arkansas lottery will help schools and 11 voted no.
