Wow, what a week. Sure, there was a lot of driving, but my dad, brother and I went on the trip of a lifetime this past week. Planned a year ago, my dad suggested we go see the baseball Hall of Fame induction ceremony, which was held last Sunday in Cooperstown, N.Y. I knew Greg Maddux with his 355 wins, Tom Glavine with his 305 wins, and Frank Thomas with his 521 home runs and over 1,700 RBI would all be first-ballot hall-of-famers, but we all got a treat when three more were added to the induction.
The city of Bryant and Mayor Jill Dabbs are set to host a ribbon cutting ceremony for the completion of Sheaff Avenue this Thursday, Aug. 7 at noon.
Dabbs said that the road was built to connect the Springhill Road overpass to Woodland Road and will offer those traveling into the city from the north an alternate route to the south end of town, relieving congestion on Reynolds Road.
