Newspaper job opening

Posted By on Wed, May 16, 2007 at 6:49 PM

Radio KTLO, one of the last great radio news outlets in the state in Mountain Home, has the scoop on what looks to be a good new job opening for journalists in booming Mountain Home:

A Mountain Home woman, 43-year old Kandra R. Branam--managing editor of the Baxter Bulletin newspaper--was arrested today and faces felony and misdemeanor charges for allegedly assisting her brother, a wanted felon from Colorado, in his attempts to evade authorities.

     Baxter County Sheriff John Montgomery says the arrest stems from an incident in January in which Branam allegedly placed a cell phone call to warn her brother while authorities were searching for him after he fled Flippin police following a traffic stop. Authorities later discovered the suspect, identified as 41 year old Thomas Russell Wells, was a Colorado fugitive who had assumed a false identity and was living at Branam's residence in Mountain Home.

     Sheriff Montgomery says Kandra Branam is charged with one Class D felony count of accomplice to fleeing, and two Class A misdemeanors of hindering apprehension or prosecution. One of the misdemeanors involves harboring or concealing a fugitive from justice.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
