Women of Saline County have eight days to apply for the Benton Police Department's Citizens Police Academy that not only plans to empower women, but give them a chance to have fun.
"My daughter went through the Junior Police Academy in high school a few years ago, and she has been wanting to do it again," former participant Jeff Morse said. "She had a really good time, and when I saw an opportunity to go through it myself, I took it. I feel very fortunate to get this opportunity."
Some tickets remain for Friday night's concert featuring Tony Witt, an international award-winning Elvis tribute artist, and Branson entertainer "Sting" Ray Anthony.

Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door and may be purchased in advance by calling KingSized Entertainment at 501-952-6005 or by visiting: www.tonywitt.com.
