What’s in a Name?

By Stephen Jones

We all go to or pass by places named in the honor of some prominent local figure, but have we really taken the time to ask ourselves who these supposedly important people are? In this article, we will dig into the back stories of these landmarks and their namesakes. First off, we will take a look at Wright Patman Lake.

On August 6, 1893, Wright Patman was born near Hughes Springs, Texas. He later graduated from Hughes Springs High School in 1912 and received his law degree from Cumberland University in 1916.

In the midst of World War I, Patman would enlist in the U. S. Army, which would lead to positions as a first lieutenant and machine gun officer in the Texas Army National Guard.

Let's GLOW on a run

The Atlanta Area Chamber of Commerce is planning to light up the town once again with its annual 5K Glow Run on Saturday. This year’s event is setting up to be one of the biggest yet, especially with sponsors like CHRISTUS St. Michael and Signa Health Spring helping out.

"I think that this year is going to be yet," said Chamber President Miranda Johnson. "It's going to be a lot of fun."

If you plan to fully participate in the Glow Run by covering yourself in the loudest of colors, come to the Glow Paint Party Zone, sponsored by HealthCare Express, at 7:30 p.m. on Hiram Street, where you will have 30 minutes to make yourself stand out as much as possible for the 5K run/walk, which scheduled from 8 p.m. until 10 p.m.

Chloe -- a story of love

I want to take a little time to tell you about a 12-year-old young lady named Chloe Renee Cox. She is the daughter of Matthew and Michelle Cox.
Chloe is the youngest of three daughters, but has always seemed to have a wisdom that is beyond her years. She has always seemed to have a simple, reasonable anecdote to many of the problems or differences faced by herself, her sisters and others. 
So much of it has been hilariously simple.
She plays on a soccer team and is the best goaltender. She has been very active until just recently. She began to experience headaches until one day she began throwing up and her father and mother took her to an emergency treatment center. They ran a CAT scan and MRI, and now her whole life has changed drastically. 
She was immediately rushed from Texarkana via an ambulance to the Children’s Hospital in Little Rock. The examination revealed a tumor at the base of her brain where the spine and brain meet.
