Hardy Fire Department Requests Advisory Committee

Meeting2016-01Hardy City Council met for its first meeting of the new year on Tuesday, Jan. 5 with a large crowd including several members of the Hardy Fire Department.

Wishing a Merry Christmas to our readers and their families

Merry-Christmas-4“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…”

Okay, maybe not the typical Hardy, Ar. celebration; in fact, with this warm weather, it looks a lot like it must have more than 2,000 years ago when Mary and Joseph made their way across the land of Israel to Bethlehem via camel.

Of course, that’s no longer our preferred means of transportation, so those of us who are traveling this year have much to be grateful for.
