Joey the Garden Cat: A TV Sensation

During an evening newscast at a local television station, a slender gray striped cat hops upon the news desk. Anchor Liz Massey smiles and says, “Oh, here’s Joey.” The cat sits on the desk and gives the camera a green-eyed stare as Liz and fellow-anchor Craig O’Neil carry on with the newscast. The privileged feline is Joey the Garden cat who is a staff member of KTHV, the CBS affiliate in Little Rock, Arkansas. Joey has become a big TV celebrity in Arkansas and his fame is spreading nationally.

White County honors fallen officers

White County honors fallen officers

Sheriff Ricky Shourd and his staff will hold a ceremony to honor the memory of those officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty.

The event coincides with National Police Week and will take place Thursday at 2pm at the White County Law Enforcement Center (on site of the memorial). The speaker will be State Representative Jeremy Gilliam. Last year the Sheriff hosted an official dedication of a permanent memorial in front of the entrance to the Sheriff’s Office. The memorial contains the names of all officers who have died in the line of duty in White County as far back as 1899 and as recently as 2005.

The ceremony will include the placing of a wreath at the memorial and full honors will be presented by the Arkansas Sheriff’s Association Honor Guard. Each fallen officer will be recognized as well as any family members in attendance. There will also be a moment of silence to honor those Arkansas officers who have fallen in the last 12 months.

We look forward to reviewing this year’s applications.”
