BITS & PIECES: Tuesday, May 17

The Arkadelphian now has more than 3,300 readers, according to our web hosting service. In speaking with a former colleague of the Siftings Herald, ad reps of the now-defunct newspaper informed its advertisers that the paper had a daily readership of 4,000-5,000. We’re making progress, one story and one reader at a time! We hope to use our free, twice-weekly newsletter to build our readership!

Facebook users: The importance of subscribing to the newsletter is that you won’t find all of our stories on social media, so you’ll see every story we’ve posted on the website. You don’t wanna miss a thing!

Part 5/9
I was transported to the emergency room, where I received a number of stitches on my upper lip. In the process, the doctor shaved half the mustache I had worn since high school. He left the other half for me to shave afterward. I’ve always been appreciative of this act of generosity.

On this week 10 years ago, River Rats canoe and tube rental opened for business on the banks of the Caddo River; Main Street Arkansas tapped downtown Arkadelphia as part of its Arkansas Downtown Network; and Fitz Hill was the keynote speaker at the second annual Arkadelphia Promise Signing Day.

Beginning in June, The Arkadelphian will have discounted advertising options for our local nonprofit organizations. These rates, we feel, will be more than reasonable for organizations, churches, etc., to advertise their message in the digital age. With so many local nonprofits that are “under the radar” this should be the perfect way to promote their message. Advertising is what keeps this news website going, so be sure and do business with these advertisers. Also, click through the ads and see what’s in store.

Monday’s special called school board meeting kept us out and working a little later than anticipated for a Monday, but that’s fine! We’re just as anxious to break the news of Arkadelphia’s next superintendent as our readers are to know who is next in line.

Early voting is in full swing.
