Local teen to host Chick-fil-A fundraiser tonight

May 14, 2013

Today, between the hours of 5 and 8 p.m., customers at Chick-fil-A in Bryant may have a portion of the money taken from their order donated to the family of 8-year-old Kelly Melton of Kentucky, who was diagnosed with cancer last year.
Those that want to participate must tell the order-taker they are there to support Kickin It 4 Kelly.
Macy Moore, 15, of Bauxite High School came up with the idea and organized the event almost entirely by herself. Macy is friends with relatives of Kelly.

Sense and Nonsense: Coming full circle with year of firsts

It's a world of unfolding miracles. Each day is surpassed only by the one yet to come.
Then there is the other side of the picture — the rite of passage no one chooses — the one that brings the firsts you never wanted.
There's the first birthday without the one who was loved most; the first Father's Day; the first Thanksgiving; the first Christmas; the first Easter; and — the hardest of all — the first anniversary of the person's death.
