Brace yourself; it's election season, and it's not going to be pretty

September 25, 2012

Often-times it isn’t what a person says but how he says it that makes a difference. As fallible humans, we often see the messenger more than we hear the message. There may not be much we can do about this vital flaw but we all can work on lessening the effects and outcomes it produces.

Creative Arts Festival draws many community residents to downtown

September 24, 2012

Downtown Benton Association's third semiannual Creative Arts Festival drew a steady stream of visitors Saturday morning.
Organizers said optimum weather conditions apparently contributed to the success of the event.
"Everyone seems to be having a good time," said coordinator Wanda Posey.
Dianne Roberts, who operates an art studio in the old Gingles store building where Books 7 Baubles now is housed, said she was pleased with the response the event was driving.
Original artwork was displayed at the event, including some created by Roberts' students.
