Vaccination Destination: Our Volunteers

Do William and Brenda look familiar? That's because this duo not only volunteers for the vaccine clinics we're hosting with Collier Drug Stores, but they also are poll workers during our elections with the Benton County Clerk's Office and Benton County Election Commission. As William says, "Anything to get us a little bit closer to that light at the end of the tunnel, which we are oh, so close to."

Patricia Race has been in emergency communications for two years. When asked why she feels so called to serving as a dispatcher: "I started doing this job because I like helping people. "I really want to help people in their time of crisis and that includes being the calm voice behind the scenes, on the other end of the phone." Thanks, Patricia for walking us through the hardest of times, the critical crisis moments and for your dedication! #NPSTW2021

Hey Benton County Road Department. You missed a road that you should’ve done. Eastgate Drive. Please pay attention to the green street signs. Also I hope you didn’t rip out a couple of sprinkler heads and thanks for plowing up half a dozen landscape stones when you plowed Fairway Drive several times. Supposed to stay out of the yards and plow the streets.
Thank you Benton County for plowing and sanding/salting our rural roads!

Do you have any idea if you will be giving vaccinations for Covid to people over 65 years of age and when if you will be.
Contacted the sheriff's department and they said there's nothing they're going to do about it. This is how this guy takes care of his animals next door to us you would think there would be some kind of ordinance or law against just letting livestock they did in the corral and rot with the other animals around. I would think it would be real unhealthy for them and it sure smells bad too bad we don't have a county government with any backbone
Benton County Road Dept. recently resurfaced Browning Road near Gentry. Road is great! A few days of minor inconvenience for major improvement. :) Thanks!
