This week may be your first opportunity to *** up a bushel of Arkansas grown peaches. Peaches are grown throughout the state with the highest concentrations of peach farms in Pope County and Johnson County. But before you head out to the supermarket, we want to encourage you to check out what your local farmers’ market may have to offer. Homegrown peaches are just the beginning. Less than 10 years ago, there were just over 30 farmers’ markets across the state. Today, we boast over 85 and they can be found in all regions. Shopping at farmers’ markets is a unique experience that not only benefits you with an opportunity to shop for fresh fruits and vegetables, but it benefits your friends and neighbors by keeping your dollar in your community. It also is an enormous benefit to our local farmers. Agriculture accounts for $16 billion of value added to our economy. It also accounts for over 10% of our gross domestic product (GDP). While our state has been known for its successful rice crop and p ...
Why do people list crap/junk for sale on Pope County and Yell County swap pages that should be thrown in the trash? For example: a person posted that they had a cell phone with a cracked screen and posted a pic of the phone. They wanted over 100 bucks for the thing! However, they also posted a pic of the phone and the screen was actually shattered and looked like it had been run over by a tank. Why, why, why? But.don't question anything about it or they will threaten to have you booted off the site and blocked.(This happened to my wife today when she posted a simple question.cracked?) What a bunch of crap! What the *** happened to freedom of speech? This kind of crap pisses me off. Guess I am just getting more grumpy in my old age! I will get off my soap box for now.
An hour or so ago, I was in a canyon here in extreme southwest Arizona, Tohono O'ldham lands near where more than 400 people from Mexico, this year, have been found dead, mostly from exposure trying to make it to the Promised Land of the US to make lives as farm laborers, landscapers and household domestics. I received a call on my cell phone informing me that two members of the Pope County Board who were absent during the vote to postpose fracking in Pope County have declared the vote to be illegal since it was not on the agenda. The two board members are busily declaring all the facts on the results of fracking as propaganda. Turns out, so the story goes, they have purchased hundreds of acres of land from which to profit from selling to fracking companies with complete disregard for the land, the water, the air and the health and tourism infrastructure of Pope County. It seems that our somewhat rural life in our homelands is constantly under threat by those who are without consciences.
Health inspections are in! Reports are provided by the Arkansas Department of Health for Pope County.
Didn't get any response last time I posted this. Would love to travel somewhere for a different look than what everyone is use to. When I'm back to Arkansas for a visit this summer is there a particular area you'd like to have a session at outside of Pope County (but in Arkansas of course) that I could set aside a day there and photograph sessions? All suggestions will be considered. A few options could be.The Old Mill in Little Rock, Garvan Woodland Gardens in Hot Springs, somewhere in Faytown and etc.
A man who was found dead this week in Pope County is from my home town of Downers Grove. I hope investigators can figure out what happened, this story sounds so strange to me. How did he get all the way down here?? GOLCONDA, Ill. (AP) - Illinois State Police are investigating the death of a suburban Chicago man whose body was found in southern Illinois. Authorities in Pope County say the body of 55-year-old William Foley III of Downers Grove was found Sunday afternoon. Foley had been reported missing Feb. 8, two days after he was last seen leaving his job in Lombard. Sheriff Jerry Suits isn't releasing additional details about the case, including where Foley's body was found and why he may have been in Pope County.

Anyone with travel plans Sunday night into Monday night should monitor for the most up to date weather forecast. A tricky forecast is developing. The main issues will be the timing of precipitation in the area. Appears at least a chance of a light wintry mix late Sunday night and Monday morning - esp over southeast MO and southern IL. A mix of sleet, snow, and freezing rain. Then a second round possible late on Monday into Monday night/Tuesday morning. Most likely freezing rain, sleet, and snow from Poplar Bluff and then northeast through Cape Girardeau County and northern Pope County, Illinois. South of that line could be all rain or perhaps a mixture of precipitation. Challenging forecast - no doubt about that.

Happy birthday to Johnson County in northwest Arkansas, created on this day in 1833! Its county seat at Clarksville, Johnson County was originally formed from a portion of Pope County. It was named after Judge Benjamin Johnson. President James Monroe appointed Ben Johnson as one of the three judge of Arkansas Territory's Superior Court in 1821, and the appointment was then renewed by Presidents John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson, making Johnson's tenure on the territorial bench the longest in Arkansas history. When Arkansas became a state in 1836, President Jackson then appointed Ben Johnson as Arkansas's first federal district court judge. Despite controversies during his tenure as judge, his career was considered a very distinguished one. Benjamin Johnson is buried in Mount Holly Cemetery in Little Rock.

Thoughts and prayers to Davenport West basketball coach Mark Bigler His son Brad was involved in a bad accident .SMSU men's basketball coach's son killed in crash Coach Bigler in critical condition July 29, 2012 By Per Peterson , Marshall Independent Save | Comments (8) | Post a comment | MARSHALL - Shock and heartbreak struck the Brad Bigler family for the second time in a little more than a year Saturday night when Drake Phillip Bigler, the five-month-old son of the Southwest Minnesota State University men's basketball coach, was killed in a two-vehicle crash in Pope County. The head-on crash occurred at 9:25 p.m. Saturday near Starbuck.

There were four people in the Bigler vehicle. Brad Bigler, 33, was in cri ...

It's the top story anywhere: heat. As we approach the nations birthday, it's a Debby Downer and Negative Nancy. Mother Nature is keeping people from their favorite July Fourth pastime, fireworks. Consistently one of the hottest places around is the Pope County town of Russellville. In fact, it's one of, if not the hottest place in the state. There are a few scientific reasons as to why it's hot but people in the thick of it have their own theories. "There's just an overwhelming draft that vortexes around us," said recent college graduate Rebecca Barnett. She dumbed it down to explain her theory in a less scientific way. "I think it's the River Valley and it just kinda gets stuck and all the rain misses us," Barnett said. "It hits one mountain and dissolves and by the time it goes to the next mountain, the eastern part of the state and the delta gets the rain and we just miss it all." That's not the only explanation heating up around town. "The nuclear plant?" asked Trina Yerby who works in Russellville. S ...
