The Good News and the People Making it Happen
September is here, and I am ready to drink Pumpkin Spice lattes and get ready for fire pit gatherings and a crisp nip in the fall air.
I know, we live in Arkansas so it is still hot, and it will be at least two false starts before it is really fall weather, but I do appreciate that we get to experience all four seasons here. You likely just said, “Yes, but not all in one 24-hour period, please.”
This issue theme was agriculture business and when we started asking around, Terry Gray and some “fancy rice” came up, so we sent Richard to find out what that was all about. If you are a “shop local” enthusiast, you can’t get any more local than “Arkansas grown aromatic long grain white jasmine rice.” And we decided an FFA story would also fit in, so we have that for you, too.
September is aways Fair and Festival time and we tried to get you information so you can get out and enjoy the upcoming NEA fall events. We look forward to covering many of them and hope to see you out there. You might find yourself or someone you know in the October edition of Premiere so you might want to get it delivered to your email every month for free!
We thank you for your loyalty and for always letting us know about “the Good News and the People Making it Happen in NEA” and thank our advertisers for supporting the effort to shine a positive light every month on NEA.
