The Gillett Coon Supper, a community fund-raiser that has long been a popular political stop, is at 6:30 p.m. Saturday in the school gymnasium in Gillett.

The festivities begin with another fund-raiser, the Berry Pre-Coon Supper Reception in the Berry Farm Shop in Gillett. It raises money for scholarships to Arkansas State University that honor former U.S. Rep. Marion and Carolyn Berry. Scholarship recipients must have an interest in public service. The reception is at 3:30 p.m. and tickets are $30 each. They also welcome sponsorships for $500 and $1,000 contributions.

For tickets to the Coon Supper call Larry Bauer at 870-830-4002.

Tickets to the reception and dinner are also available at the door. To sponsor the reception call Ben Noble at 501-772-9473 or Gabe Holmstrom at 479-409-3329.

  • 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.
