Benton is about to have its own pictorial graphic.
The Saline Courier advertising representatives soon will be calling on area businesses and organizations to develop a poster-size, full-color, cartoon artist's rendering of the Benton area.
The poster will be deserving of a frame, according to Saline Courier publisher Tony Cooper.
"This one-of-a-kind poster will permanently depict the personality of the community as it appears today," Cooper said.
He pointed out that this is a "unique and fun way of accomplishing a serious objective â€” promoting the community."
Joanna Hall, age 92, died peacefully at home in Benton on Wednesday, June 11, 2014.
Throughout her life she expressed her love for family and friends through her sweet, kind spirit, her quick-to-laugh humor, her warm smile, and her twinkling blue eyes. She was grateful to all who helped her live her last days in her home, a happy place bursting with memories, with wonderful views of the creek and woods filled with creatures including a pair of barred owls.
