New Boat Dock In Loberg Park

We are impressed with the speed of the construction of the new boat dock pier being built in Loberg Park in Hardy, AR. This new addition to this great park will allow easy access to the Spring River from the park.

It is wonderful seeing how great things can happen when we work together.  We wish to thank Billy Gilbreath, Director Of Public Works and all those involved. The idea had been tried nearly five times over the past many years with no success. When you have a Mayor and City officials that can actually work as a team good things happen.

A Sharp County man required medical attention and many Hardy businesses remained closed for the day May 10 after a vehicle took out a fire hydrant and telephone pole, causing the city to lose power to many of its businesses before taking out a street sign and ultimately coming to rest against a business.

According to Hardy Police Chief Tamara Taylor, the incident occurred at approximately 8:03 a.m., when the vehicle, driven by Mark Strickland, 45, left the roadway and proceeded to wreak havoc on the south side of the roadway beginning near Dr. Thompson Park and ending at the old arcade.

Did you know that the first full week of May is National Travel and Tourism Week

The first full week of May is annually recognized as National Travel and Tourism Week, a tradition first celebrated in 1984. Localized events are presented in cities, states, and travel businesses nationwide to champion the power of American tourism and travel. It was established as National Travel and Tourism Week when the U.S. Congress passed a joint resolution in 1983 designating the week to be celebrated in May.

Hardy City Council Shows Optimism For The Future

The City of Hardy had a rough start to the new year, but the small town is getting back on track and is optimistic for the upcoming year. Dealing with accusations from local media outlets and clean up from back to back storms, city officials are still finding the time to make sure the budget stays on track and even look for other ways to save money.

One of those ways is by hiring a new city attorney. Alex Bigger, an attorney from Pocahontas, Ark., offered to bring his experience to the table at a significantly lower price than local attorney, Hollie Greenway, who has served the city for several years. The council has appreciated Greenway’s advice over the years, but are concentrating on areas where money can be saved.

Alex is licensed to practice law in Arkansas and is a member of the Arkansas Bar Association. He currently serves as the elected City Attorney for Pocahontas, Arkansas, as the appointed City Attorney for Corning, Arkansas, and as General Counsel for the Clay County Electric Cooperative Corporation.

Hardy Appoints Interim Chief Tamara Taylor to DPS Director

After serving the City of Hardy as Interim Chief of Police, twice…Mayor Jason Jackson swore in Tamara Taylor as the official Director of Department of Public Safety at the council meeting held Tuesday, Feb. 21.

Not one to stand in the stoplight, Taylor is excited about the role of leadership, but said that is because she has a great team of fellow officers. She didn’t go into law enforcement with the hopes of being head of a department someday, or to ever hold a rank. “I never imagined it would be, I never really wanted a rank and I was fine in patrol. I did it for the people,” Taylor said.

Be A Wiz Kid

The Harlem Wizards are looking for Wiz Kids again this year to help them warm up before the March 10 Wizards vs Sharp Shooters Basketball Show at the AL Hutson Center in Highland.

Last year, there were over 30 kids who donned the official Harlem Wizard jersey and helped the Wizards warm up before the big game.
“The kids had so much fun warming up with the Wizards last year. They created this cool grand entrance and got a photo opportunity with the team and all the Wiz Kids,” said Amy Rodola, the chair of the Wiz Kids promotion. “One of the most heart-warming moments was when a mother of one of the Wiz Kids confided that her child, who had a debilitating illness and not able to play in any other sports, could safely be a Wiz Kid. The child was absolutely thrilled!”
