Jennifer Ann (Burr) Calkins, 63 of Benton, passed away Friday, November 18, 2011 at Saline Memorial Hospice House.
Jennifer was born August 7, 1948 in Rayville, LA to Modell (Womack) Burr and the late Travis Burr.

The Bauxite Lady Miners dropped their final game of the Alumni Girls Classic 61-51 to the Little Rock Central Lady Tigers on Saturday at Little Rock Hall High School.
Bauxite went 1-2 in the tournament, defeating Lonoke 60-41 in the first round and losing to Little Rock Parkview 69-36 in the second round. Parkview won the tournament when they beat North Little Rock 45-37 in the final.
Parkview went to the 6A State Championship last year and Central lost in the first round of the 7A playoffs last year, so the Lady Miners (2-2) had some tough competition to begin the year.
