What's news this week in Crittenden County...

CCMS cheerleaders headed to state

Grand Marshal Gordon Guess – a former banker – will fittingly be tossing out change during Saturday’s Christmas Parade on Main Street. Yes, that’s money. Dimes and nickels. “He thought that would be more appropriate than candy since he was a banker,” said Crittenden County Chamber of Commerce Executive Secretary Susan Alexander. In many ways, Guess has been a larger-than-life character, building a legacy of community service whether at local ballparks, in politics or through a number of civic organizations. His resume of community involvement runs deep, and he’s quick to admit his pride for many of the accomplishments.
