Myself and other local elected officials had the opportunity to attend Leadership Day in Washington D.C. this week. Among others U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue and U.S. Department of Energy Secretary Rick Perry were in attendance. Secretary Perry shared with us the importance of technology while Secretary Perdue shared his Farm Bill with us and the key programs the USDA is implementing. One in particular caught my attention. There are currently $23.5 million in grants available for farmers markets. To apply for these grants go to www.ams.usda.gov/services/grants

So proud that our very own Justice Janet Green was chosen to take part in this.

On June 15th, 1836 Arkansas became the 25th state admitted to the Union. This map from the Rumsey Collection shows what the state would have looked like at that time. Happy Birthday Arkansas, 183 never looked so good!

The Miller County Circuit Clerks Office recently did some remodeling to vamp up our security! In the process of our remodel a kind man donated an automatic door closer to help make the court house a little safer. We were so blown away by the generosity we neglected to get his name or contact information. We would like to get in touch with him to not only thank him but to offer to buy some of the remaining automatic door closers for other offices in the court house looking to enhance security! The Mystery Donor is a Miller County resident. Please share to help us find him and make Miller County a little safer in the process!

Hope to see you there!

Legislation to increase the homestead property tax credit from $350 to $375 per parcel and also help counties buy voting machines won final legislative approval on Thursday. The homestead property tax credit is not a tax increase, rather a tax benefit for homeowners. #ARcounties #ARnews #arleg #homesteadtaxcredit

Happy birthday, Miller County! It was created April 1, 1820, by the Territorial Legislature and abolished in 1838, to be recreated by the state General Assembly from a portion of Lafayette County in December 1874. It was named both times for James Miller, the first governor of Arkansas Territory. Texarkana is the county seat. #ARcounties #ArkansasCounty #Arkansashistory #MillerCounty #Texarkana

This morning I attended CPR and AED training. We have 2 portable AED devices at the courthouse, one located in the Collectors office. Miller County OEM, Joe Bennett, conducted training so that in the case of an emergency we would be properly trained on using the device and administering proper CPR.

In 2018, there were 286 car crashes reported on Stateline Avenue - causing almost a half million dollars in damage to property. When we started looking at what was causing these accidents, it wasn't the things that you would ordinarily expect, such as speeding or driver inattention. Surprisingly, it was people trying to turn left. After reviewing several options on how to help reduce this number, the simplest solution seemed to make the most sense.

Starting on May 1st, all left hand turns on Stateline Avenue across traffic lanes will be prohibited - except at intersections with a traffic light that has a protected turn arrow. You will still be able to turn left from the side streets but not actually on Stateline itself. Crews will begin installing signs in the coming weeks ahead of the change.

We realize that this might take a little time to get used to but will work better for everyone in the end. We are excited at this change as it will mean fewer accident calls that we have to answer. By the way, we made up the whole thing and none of this is true. Happy April Fools' Day. 😁

Smart911 is a free service offered to citizens. It allows you to build a profile for your home in case you ever have to call 911 in an emergency situation. Your information will show up on screen and dispatch will have all critical information you’ve added to your profile such as medical conditions, medications, etc. I encourage you to take advantage of this. During an emergency it’s often hard to remember (what could be) life saving information.

This service helps 9-1-1 protect your family by providing more information to first responders. You should sign up too, it is free!

I love this so much! Not only as an American, but also as the daughter of a Vietnam veteran, I am honored that Miller County has become a Purple Heart County. The men and women who put their lives on the line for us deserve our upmost respect and recognition. 💜

Congratulations, Miller County Arkansas for becoming a Purple Heart County! The designation recognizes veterans that got wounded in action during a time of war. "It is a huge honor to have Miller County as a Purple Heart," said Miller County Judge Cathy Hardin Harrison.
