Local priest reacts to papal appointment

March 15, 2013

Pope Francis displayed enormous humility when he stood on the balcony of the Vatican this week and broke tradition by asking the more than 150,000 spectators to pray for him and bless him before offering a blessing for them, said the Rev. Father Joseph Ejimofor of Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church in Benton.
Pope Francis also declined to be elevated above the other cardinals in the ceremony and chose the name Francis, which has never been used by a pope before, in honor of St. Francis of Assissi, a lover of the poor.

Developer to finish apartment construction after court ruling

March 15, 2013

Saline County Circuit Court Judge Gary Arnold ruled last week that Phase III of Arbor Creek Apartments, owned by Jeremiah Oltmans, is not subject to a 2011 ban placed on apartment construction in Bryant and that Oltmans' request to extend his building permit is not prohibited by the ban.
Oltmans is owner of Oltmans Development Inc.
The developer filed a lawsuit against the city Feb. 22, asking the court to order the city to grant a building permit extension, after a dispute on whether his project was subject to the ban caused significant delay in the project's completion.
