The agency currently consist of three programs, which are The Children’s Advocacy Center, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA).

Allen Speaks at Recent Rotary Meeting

Jay Hinckley and Kathy Allen

Through the years, many Winn residents may have sold a home or a property. Whether it was their own home as they moved on to a new residence or a camp or the home of a parent as they’ve handled the estate, they may have wondered what steps they should take, what expenses they ought to make to help get the best price for that property.

Rotarian Jay Hinckley had program responsibilities for the January 23 meeting of the Rotary Club of Winnfield and invited Jonesboro realtor Kathy Allen to speak about things a seller ought to do to get the best sale price in the shortest time. Are there items on a must-do checklist? Are there things that some sellers spend money on only to find that it does not benefit the sale? Should they sell the property “asis” or should they seek a higher price by providing an allowance for certain items that need attention?

What Parents Should Know About Their Child’s Eye Health

Dodson High School will celebrate its 2019 Homecoming on January 18 . Morning ceremony is at 10:00 and evening presentation starts at 5:00. Hannah Vines, Ally Jennings, Shelby Brown, Gracie Fitzgerald, Miranda Long, Jaicie Womack, Kaylen Williams, Jessica Crain, Victoria Hubbard, Sadie Beaubouef, Hannah Pendarvis, Jaden Graham, Aaliyah Booker, Faithe Williams, James Jones, Jason James, Colton James, Xaidien Hall, Dylan Broomfield, Hunter Vines, Lathan Wise, Hunter Simons, Micah Caskey, Jacob Tumlin, Tanner Barton, Dylan Crotwell, Caden Sellers.

(StatePoint) Parents know that seeing clearly is important for their kid’s success in the classroom, but many are not taking their child to get annual eye exams. This is a problem because many kids don’t know what seeing clearly looks like.

According to a recent study by VSP Vision Care, the largest not-for-profit vision benefits provider in the U.S., and market research agency YouGov, eight-in-10 parents (83 percent) agree that a regular eye exam helps kids do their best in school, but fourin-10 (41 percent) wait until their child complains about their vision to schedule an eye exam.

Clear vision is not only important for academic performance, but also for sports and everyday tasks. That’s why a comprehensive eye exam is so important for children. Early detection and treatment provide the opportunity to correct vision problems.

GOP and Democrats trade blame for shutdown, no deal in sight

As agreement eludes Washington in the waning days of the Republican monopoly on power, it sets up the first big confrontation between Trump and newly empowered Democrats. Trump is sticking with his demand for money to build a border wall with Mexico, and Democrats, who take control of the House on Jan. 3, are refusing to give him what he wants.

Trump raised the stakes on Friday, reissuing threats to shut the U.S.-Mexico border to pressure Congress to fund the wall and to shut off aid to three Central American countries from which many migrants have fled.

"We will be forced to close the Southern Border entirely if the Obstructionist Democrats do not give us the money to finish the Wall & also change the ridiculous immigration laws that our Country is saddled with," he wrote in one of a series of tweets.
