What's news this week...

In Crittenden County there's lots to talk about these days.

Upcoming are some contested local elections and a big decision is brewing over the hospital. A least one community leader believes legalized alcohol sales might be the answer to financial problems facing local government, and at the schools a policeman devotes his own time to keep kids safe.

The volleyball team's storied season ended this week, but the football Rockets have a key matchup Friday that could mean back to back titles.
