Officer fired after DWI

February 25, 2013

A Benton police officer has been terminated after a recent DWI arrest.
Heath Curtis Ward, 32, of Benton was hired by the Benton Police Department more than two years ago as a patrol officer.
On Feb. 9, at 1:50 a.m., Ward was reportedly stopped by Bryant Officer Jon Haydon on Interstate 30 near the Springhill overpass for speeding, failing to use turn signals for lane changes and swerving between lanes.

Sense and Nonsense: Pantyhose, it's about time for a fashion comeback

I'll never forget the first time I wore pantyhose. I felt as if I had been freed from bondage.
This new style evolved from the infamous garter belt used to secure individual stockings or, even before that, garters to hold up the leg coverings.
Pantyhose were the new frontier. Women were ecstatic, and I was the leader of the pack.
I don't recall when all of this occurred, but I do remember the joy with which I embraced the contemporary legwear. And now a lot of women shun them for the barelegged look, which, I'm told, they believe to be more attractive.

It has been an eventful week here in Saline County. We can’t seem to shake a stubborn winter, the Benton boys and girls basketball teams are on historic marches toward the state playoffs, and real progress is being made on the worthwhile Saline Crossing Regional Park effort.
It is also worth pointing out that Wednesday’s edition of the Courier was 100 percent local. It was our first in a while, but certainly won’t be our last. The newsroom’s efforts to drive more local content into our pages are paying off, and our readers will certainly see that moving forward.
