Snow day advice: 'take it easy'

Faulkner County deputies were “working some wrecks here and there,” but there haven’t been any serious-injury crashes according to Chief Deputy Matt Rice.

 

At the Faulkner County Courthouse Melinda Reynolds, the county clerk, was there to take last-minute candidate filings. Today’s the deadline. All other county and city offices are closed, but David Hogue, the county attorney, drove a Jeep to his office to officially lift the county’s burn ban.

 

The hard-frozen sleet has made for exceptionally good sledding at the Conway Country Club this time around — or at least exceptionally fast sledding.

 

“We’ve been on the go since about 6:30 last night,” a ProAuto towing employee said. “Just a lot of cars spun off the road and into ditches. It doesn’t take a lot to get them out, but we’ve been busy with it.”

 

ProAuto appreciates the business, but had the usual advice: “Give yourself plenty of space to slow down for a stopsign or stoplight or to turn and just take it easy.”
