Last Saturday RallyX car racing was held in Crabtree. Sixteen drivers competed in 5 categories churning up a lot of dirt, to the delight of spectators, on a very curvy half mile track. The winners are: “Modified Front” James Dale; “Stock Rear” 11 Jackson; “Stock All” Chris Brissey; “Prepared All” Joshua Spear; and “Modified All” Nelson Santos. Next race is scheduled for September 16. More info is on Facebook at RallyArkansas.


Glyen Jackson was there and talked about the wet weather. He said it was delaying the first cutting of hay. He’s finished a few small fields but says wet hay means extra processing, extra expense and less profit margin. On the other hand the rain seemed to help his recent fishing trip to Truman Lake. “We killed the crappie…kept 180!,” he said. Sounds like there’s a mighty fine fish fry in someone’s future.


“Blooms of Note” going on now: day lilies in orange & yellow, hydrangea, red hot poker, Indian pink, rose companion, monkey flower, elephant garlic, and yucca.
