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

Ryan McDaniel is sworn Tuesday as
the new school board member.
It’s been 13 years since Marion implemented a 3-percent tourism tax that goes a bit beyond collecting cash from visitors. The toll affects everyone who eats out or spends the night in one of the city’s few overnight lodging facilities. Local residents have often questioned why they’re burdened with footing the bill for the community’s tourism efforts, but those in charge say the tax goes much further than luring visitors.
