Mark Twain is credited with the quote, "Golf is a good walk spoiled."
Obviously, Twain never experienced a round of golf at Longhills among the rolling hills and tree-lined course that became a part of this community over a span of six decades.
Longhills is more than a golf course, it's a piece of county history woven into the fabric of many lives and families.
Longhills opened as a 9-hole course built by Bill Martin in 1955 and through various renovations and growth, the course extended to a full 18-hole, 6,400-yard layout in the 1960s.
The Martins were the original owners.
Tiffany Dunn, an employee of the Saline County Regional Solid Waste Management District, was recognized as a Keep Arkansas Beautiful Lodestar.
According to the Keep Arkansas Beautiful Commission, a lodestar is someone who "serves as an inspiration, model or guide."
In honor of its 25th anniversary, which it is calling its "Greeniversary," Keep Arkansas Beautiful is honoring 25 exceptional individuals for guiding their neighborhoods and communities in an effort to keep Arkansas clean, green and free of litter.
A teen who was arrested in connection with a "hill-jumping accident" earlier this month has since had his bond revoked after he received two additional traffic citations Thursday night.
Charles K. Sadler, 18, of Bryant was allegedly traveling 94 mph in a 70 mph zone on Interstate 30 when he was pulled over near mile marker 117. Sadler received a citation for speeding and reckless driving, said Shea Meeler, Saline County Deputy Prosecutor.
Because he was the driver in the "hill-jumping accident," he was charged with manslaughter but was released on a $10,000 sheriff's bond.
