DAVIS: Don't like our political coverage? I'll make you an offer you can't refuse.

November 3, 2011

I'll be honest with you. About this time last year I was concerned about the direction this paper was taking, so much so that I considered no longer writing my weekly column for it. The political rhetoric was, from my point of view, beyond what the general public considered interesting. I don't say this to cast aspersions toward the previous editor and/or publisher. I say them to set a new standard of this newspapers involvement in political campaigns. To clear the air, so to speak.

Benton to face Little Rock Fair tonight

November 3, 2011

It has not been an easy season for the Benton Panthers. With each new week, a new injury seems to appear, making it difficult for the Panthers to find their rhythm. The biggest loss so far — senior quarter back Dylan Harris. Add to the fact that they play in the 6A South, one of the toughest conferences in the state, and you end up with one forgettable and miserable season.
To start the year, the Benton Panthers showed huge promise as being a contender in the 6A South with a 21-14 loss to now conference-leading Bryant and followed with a huge win over Jacksonville.

DAVIS: Think Before You Vote

November 3, 2011

It doesn't matter what the election, voting with your emotions on your sleeve can be dangerous. Voter remorse sets in quickly and before you know it, the person or issue that you steadfastly supported are now the cause of that pain in your shoulders and other regions that can't be described in a local newspaper. We all have had the feeling before but sadly enough fail to recognize the signs when future ballots are placed in front of us.
