Central Ark. ranks no. 32 for best places for business, careers

CENTRAL ARKANSAS (Northwest Arkansas Council) - Arkansas' two largest metropolitan areas once again find themselves ranked among the nation's top places to do business.

Forbes magazine on Wednesday placed Northwest Arkansas (No. 28) and Central Arkansas (No. 32) near the top of 200 metropolitan statistical areas as "Best Places for Business and Careers."

"People in both of our regions and around the state are working together to show some of the business advantages to being in Arkansas," said Mike Malone, President and CEO of the Northwest Arkansas Council, a private nonprofit organization working with partners on improving the region's economic opportunity. "In both regions, efforts to create high-paying jobs, improve educational attainment and develop regional amenities are paying dividends."

"Our economies in Central and Northwest Arkansas are unique enough that we don't compete, and we can root for the other's success."

Postal Service to dedicate, rename Rose Bud Post Office to honor Medal of Honor winner

ROSE BUD (USPS) - On Tuesday, August 6, 2013, the U.S. Postal Service will pay tribute to a dedicated American by renaming the Rose Bud Post Office the Nicky "Nick" Daniel Bacon Post Office Building.

The ceremony will begin at 11 a.m. in the Rose Bud High School Arena at 124 School Road.

Congressman Tim Griffin sponsored Public Law 112-221 in the House of Representatives to rename the Rose Bud postal facility the Nicky "Nick" Daniel Bacon Post Office Building, which was signed by President Barack Obama on December 28, 2012.

While serving in Vietnam, Squad Leader Bacon personally is credited with destroying an anti-tank weapon and moving platoons forward so they could eliminate enemy positions and rescue soldiers trapped at the front. For his actions on that day, Bacon received the Medal of Honor.
