Rodeo, Pageants Help Fair Make Return After Two Years

RISON - While entries were down and some of the usual ac‐tivities were not held this year, Fair Board President Roy Phillips said he was, overall, pleased with how things turned out at the 2022 Cleveland County Fair considering this was the first event since 2019. Due to the COVID pandemic, the Cleveland County Fair was not held in 2020 or 2021, though Phillips did point out that they held a rodeo last year as a fill-in event. This year, the rodeo was back as well as the Cleveland County Fair Pageants, but the duration of the fair was cut down to three days overall compared to the five-day events in the past. There was not a fair parade this year as well. Phillips said the number of en‐tries into the various fair compe‐titions were about half of what they were in 2019. “We kind of expected that,” Phillips said, noting it has been two years since there was a fair and it will take time for people to get back into the routine. In previous years, the fair would begin accepting entries…

State Seeks Facilities Plan From CCSD

No Sanctions Against District After Meeting With Facilities Commission. RISON - The Cleveland County School District will have to submit a plan to the state outlining how it will address some facilities needs after the district met with the Arkansas Division of Public School Academic Facilities and Transportation Commission last week. Superintendent Craig Dupuy, along with School Board President Harrell Wilson and Southeast Arkansas Education Cooperative Facilities Delegate Scotty Holderfield, met with the commission last Wednesday, Sept. 14, to discuss the district’s facilities Master Plan. Arkansas Code 6-21-811 requires a conference to be held with representatives of a school district whenever a millage request to fund projects included in the district’s Master Plan fail to pass.

Dupuy noted that the conference should have been held after voters rejected a…
