Okay for some that last word may be somewhat of a tongue twister..so instead we can just say it is Arkansas’s 175th Birthday! What is also exciting is that the State Tourism Director has announced a List of the Top 175 Places to Visit in Arkansas in Honor of State’s 175th Birthday.
This list was determined by activity and searches on Arkansas.com, and we encourage our website visitors to click and go to www.arkansas.com/175 and vote for their favorite destinations in the state. You get to vote for the ones you like and help the State determine the “best of Arkansas.” You will find our city listed under the HISTORIC SITES drop down tab.
(Originally Published Jun 16, 2010) With the talk from City Hall about bringing WiFi to Dr. Thompson Park we thought we would repost our original story about Free Wifi.
Why even offer Free WiFi (muniwireless) along Main Street in Hardy Arkansas? The only thing that retains value is what the local community is willing to invest in terms of their interest and content. If local businesses, organizations, civic groups and schools in the local community, in short, are willing to create local content for the local network, post local ads, if they see the service as part of the fabric of the community. That is part of the idea of Free muniwirelessWiFi, because our idea – would first point all users to the Main Street Hardy Online Resource website. This then helps promote not only the town but the local merchants and community as well. Is this self serving? Not really, its self promoting of our town ! Besides, if we don’t do it, no one else will.
City dwellers may look down on small town America and wonder what a small town could possibly have to offer. What is there to see and do? Why choose to live out in the middle of nowhere? But there are as many reasons, that tempt people to live in small town America rather than move to the big city.
Being a small town local news can sometimes be a little slow, not that we mind this. It’s why we all love our small town in the first place. In an effort to continue to provide a better website experience, we are excited to now offer live video clips of Arkansas area news and National news right here on our website.
Now you can visit our site to check out news clips that are constantly being updated in real time. This is just another addition to our site in our effort to continue to bring to the Hardy Arkansas area a way to come together through information and technology.
Just a friendly reminder that this Friday Dec. 18th is THIRD FRIDAY in Hardy. This is when many of the local shops will remain open until 8:00pm for those interested in shopping and supporting your local economy. It’s getting close to Christmas so now is the time to get out and find that special gift item. Hope to see ya’ll on Main Street.
So…here is what this particular area is all about. Here we can share our stories of Hardy and the lives we have had and continue to have. We can tell our tales of how, why and what brought us here and the love for Hardy that we all share.
I’ve had the priviledge of falling in love, running a great business and meeting great friends, watching seasons pass, leaves fall and meeting all the wonderful people who live and travel to and through Hardy. What a wonderful place to experience life. I love Hardy and I’m glad that I’m here.
