When it's time to be born, a baby has the last word

January 7, 2013

When a baby is ready to enter the world, it takes a lot more than bad weather and a power outage to change its mind.
That's exactly the scenario that took place during the early morning hours of Dec. 26 at the Benton home of Josh and Katie Broadus.
Katie, who was nine months' pregnant, was scheduled for an induced delivery on Dec. 28, but daughter London Kate didn't want to wait. This, in spite of the fact that a snowstorm had occurred, taking out the electricity and heat in their home.

Local man, 89, walks a mile, bakes pies every day

January 7, 2013

Whether facing rain, sleet, snow or the fact that he turns 90 years of age on Thursday, nothing will stop Ernie Gibson of Benton from walking a mile or cooking unique pecan pies for the community every day.
"I just started making pies and people got to eating them. The more they ate, the more I made them and I just stayed with it," he said with a laugh. "I don't know why I make the pies, it's just something I found out I could do and people seem to like it."

Apartment construction still frozen in Bryant

January 7, 2013

The Bryant City Council voted during a special meeting at 4 p.m. Friday to extend a hold on the issuance of permits to build multi-family housing in the city limits.
The council had been slated to vote on whether to lift the moratorium, which was put in place in 2011. Alderman Steve Curtis instead moved to vote to extend it.
Although the action might make the city vulnerable to a lawsuit with a current land owner, the council voted unanimously to extend the hold after nearly 20 residents spoke out against the construction of apartments in the area.
