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!”

Boyd Carpenter Scholarship Committee Accepting Applications

For the 33rd year, FNBC Bank will award the Boyd Carpenter Scholarship to a graduating high school senior from Sharp, Izard or Fulton County who plans to attend college and seek a 4-year degree. FNBC Bank partners with the Arkansas Community Foundation to fund this $4,000 scholarship.

Pearl Harbor Remembrance

A small crowd gathered on the Wilburn Brothers Memorial Bridge on Spring Street in Hardy Dec. 7 to remember the events which took place at Pearl Harbor 75 years ago. During the ceremony, those in attendance paid their respects both remembering and honoring the 2,403 Americans killed during the surprise attack led by the Japanese in Hawaii that day in 1941.

Hardy Timely Club Donates To CASA Volunteers

Ga2732105-lteway CASA volunteers are trained, caring adults who place themselves at the center of a child’s life and serve in their best interest. A CASA volunteer is a court appointed special advocate, sworn in as an officer of the court. These volunteers serve as a guiding force in a foster child’s life.

The Hardy Timely Club constantly strives to assist with growing community needs. Realizing that CASA advocates play such an important role in the lives of foster children, the club pursued the idea of providing each advocate with a duffle bag and a library of interactive games, books, and toys in their quest to build lasting relationships with their assigned foster children. This project was made possible in part by a grant from the Sharp County Community Foundation, an affiliate of Arkansas Community Foundation.

Hardy Businessmen Create New Concept With Old Technology

2698115-lMaking something useful from something ordinary is no new concept for local craft artist and digital decorator, Marc Herring and his business associate, Hal Mandelman. Their latest project, “Get a Round TUIT'” with a QR, or as he calls it, a Matrix code, will open new doors for local businesses when it comes to customer retention and growth.

Although you may be familiar with the traditional QR code, which is generally a checkerboard style black and white square printed onto items varying from food to furniture; Herring has taken it one step further by creating a working 3D version on his TUITs.
