Congratulations to Downtown Walnut Ridge and the Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce for receiving "The Bootstrap Award" at the annual Henry Awards Banquet at the 39th Governor's Conference on Tourism held in Hot Springs.

The Bootstrap Award is given annually to an individual, organization or community that has achieved significant success with limited means to work with either in resources or finances.

Angee Jones, Bro. Glenn Smith of United Free Will Baptist Church and Bro. Jake Guenrich of First Baptist Church did a great job conducting a candlelight vigil Monday night for Sidney Randall and her family at Beatles Park.

A large crowd gathered to show support for Sidney, her family, friends and classmates. Heartfelt prayers and concern were evident from all present.

A second vigil is set for this evening at 5 at Sexton Field on the Walnut Ridge School campus.

Friday was our first trip to see the new Greene County Tech High School in Paragould. It is an outstanding facility, and the Performance Arts Center is second to none.

The school was hosting the Region V Concert Assessment for the Arkansas School Band and Orchestra Association, and bands performed in the Performance Arts Center.

We were privileged to hear the WRHS Pride Band as they received top or "superior" ratings.

Those ratings, along with a superior rating in sight-reading and in October's marching contest, earned the band the Sweepstakes Award for the 2012-13 school year. Congratulations to John Long, director, and his band.

WRHS senior Hunter Flippo was featured in Sunday's Arkansas Democrat Gazette Three Rivers Edition 2013 High School Baseball Preview. The issue features Hillcrest, Hoxie and Walnut Ridge baseball teams. The cover headline reads, "Player to Watch: Hunter Flippo of Walnut Ridge."
