February 20, 2015

Everett Buick GMC was lauded for amassing the top new vehicle sales in the nation at a banquet Thursday night at the Benton Event Center.

That in itself is a stupendous honor, Everett’s co-owners Dwight and Susie Everett acknowledge.

But there is more to the honor. This isn’t a singular accomplishment for the Bryant dealership — it’s the fifth consecutive year that the company’s sales have been tops in the entire country.

February 18, 2015

The sleet and ice that made city streets slippery this week has kept most drivers from venturing out of the driveway, and has closed schools and shut many small businesses. But snow days simply aren’t allowed with some professions, especially those related to the emergency field.

In response to the slick roadways, the Benton Police Department has deployed one of its most useful weapons it has for times of severe weather: a military-grade Humvee able to crawl over the white stuff with impressive ease.
