Ceremony honors fallen officers
It was an occasion marked by both sorrow and hope when area law enforcement officers and members of the community paid tribute to four De Queen policemen who lost their lives more than 30 years ago.

Over 200 people - including local police and deputies, community leaders and family members of the fallen officers - attended the ceremony held at the De Queen National Guard Armory. The event was held to officially memorialize the four officers who were killed in a traffic accident on July 4, 1984. Those killed were Captain Bill Mills, Sergeant Roy Brewer and patrolmen Bill Gilham and Herman Jones - four of the De Queen Police Department's seven full-time officers in 1984.

Lockesburg seeks funds for new senior citizen center
LOCKESBURG – A brand-new senior citizens center could be on the way if the City of Lockesburg succeeds in applying for a grant through the Southwest Arkansas Planning and Development District.

The grant proposal would address a number of facility and safety concerns at the existing center on W. Hickory Street in Lockesburg. The building is attached to the city shop, raising concerns by city officials over items stored there including gasoline and chemicals.

"This isn't just about aesthetics, but also about providing a safe place for our seniors to meet," said Lockesburg Mayor Danny Ruth. "We've had complaints about the smell coming from the shop and getting into the center. We have to store chemicals in there. It's just not a good situation."
