Heading to the Womack 'town' hall by ferry boat? Updated instructions

Posted By on Wed, Aug 16, 2017 at 7:22 AM

ALL ABOARD: The ferry is the only way to reach Steve Womack's town hall. And it only runs every 40 minutes, a local says.
  • ALL ABOARD: The ferry is the only way to reach Steve Womack's town hall. And it only runs every 40 minutes, a local says.

I've received a correction from a local r
esident on my earlier instructions about how to attend U.S. Rep. Steve Womack's scheduled meeting with constituents at 2:45 p.m. Aug. 21 at the Lazy Acres Fire Department on the north shore of Bull Shoals Lake, essentially reachable only by the 12-car ferry that crosses an arm of the lake at Peel. (CORRECTION: Did it again. Got lake wrong initially.)

Kim Robbins of the Buck Creek Marina corrects the ferry schedule I printed from another source. It does not run every 20 minutes from Peel, he said.

The ferry departs every 40 minutes from either side. Even hours from Peel and odd hours from Buck Creek/Protem. Example: Peel side..2pm, 2:40p, 3:20p, 4p. From the Buck Creek side...1p, 1:40p, 2:20p, 3p etc....}
After crossing the lake, you drive on Highway 12t to Lazy Acres Road. There, you turn LEFT, not right as I wrote, Robbins said.

It's actually a left turn onto Lazy Acres Road which is a long winding back road. But it IS at least paved.] and then drive about 2.5 more miles.

Robbins closed:

Thank you for sharing this information, for even though we live in the area, I had not heard about Womack coming for 'coffee'. It is a lovely area (we moved here 3 yrs ago from Maumelle) and I hope many will be able to attend.

  • 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.
