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

Summer Reading started Tuesday at the
public library. Above, sisters Karlee and Emily
Hardin get down to business with some coloring
during the opening ceremonies of an Olympics-
themed summer of sharpening young reading skills.
In many ways, Hurricane Camp Meeting can be boiled down to a numbers game. There’s a head count for campers. This year, almost 70 young folks – the most ever – will ascend upon the grounds, bringing their laughter, pillows, tooth brushes and excitement to the forested hillsides that are tranquil and tame for the other 51 weeks out of the year.
