The Christmas Day storm that dumped from 6 to 10 inches of snow in central Arkansas has left a growing pile of debris in its wake. Fallen trees, limbs and other yard waste have been cleared and accumulated.
Residents have begun to ask if there will be an effort to assist with the removal of the debris. The Saline Courier contacted local mayors for their response.
CARLISLE - It is hard to believe that Head Coach Mark Smith and the rest of the Bauxite Miners could have envisioned a better start to the season than what they have. Sitting at 7-4 overall is not bad, but an impressive 3-0 start in 7-4A conference play has the program smiling already this young season.
CARLISLE - Other than being without electricity since Christmas, the Harmony Grove Cardinals were hit with another big blow when they fell hard to England on Friday, 80-52 in the Carlisle Holiday Classic. But despite not practicing and suffering one of the biggest losses in 2012, the Cardinals returned to Carlisle on Saturday and got back to their old ways of winning. After a hard and intense practice session just hours before getting on the bus, the Cardinals took care of business, beating DeWitt in a 57-27 rout of their own.
