Roads Lived ON and a Friend Dearly Missed
Earlier this year I was searching information on a Highway that I lived on during my childhood sexual abuse year. It was a clay gravel road with one way bridges for awhile then paved. So many potholes on the road our school bus rattled every bolt loose. Whenever it rained the school bus had to go an alternate route through logging roads 30 miles out of the way to get us to school by 2nd period. I lived halfway between Sheridan and Redfield on this gravel road. On a little gravel road called Qualls Rd. There was a trail from the neighbors yard through the woods to take a shortcut for the bus stop. This was a relief during winter days due to only time used because of ticks so bad. Although I found myself running down the trail a few times to get to the bus on time during warm weather. The day at school was spent picking c-ticks off my skin. Once walking this trail while carrying my Arkansas History book a bird crapped on the book. Behind this house back then where this trail was- was a pastuer with black cows. My friend Kim Harris lived there. I remember wearing red shirt and running from the cows across the wooden steps built across the fence. Kim had all kinds of animals at her house including peacocks. There was a big ladder platform with a handlebar swing that everyone played. I moved from here during the summer after 8th grade. I moved to Watson Chapel on Cross Road. After highschool, I met Kim again. We became close friends again. She drove a little blue car and we sang and sang everywhere we went. She was a little songbird. She continued to live at the same location but was changed some now the trail that I walked to catch the bus on was her driveway. I thought that was very cool. No more catching ticks through the pine thicket trail. While I was researching I discovered her trajic death. She was murdered. I miss her. I am just now able to sing in my car again without crying.

Update: Double shooting in Grant County
|Updated: 12/08/2010 8:51 pm||Published: 12/03/2010 10:53 am|
“Something like this isn’t supposed to happen.”
That’s what the Sheriff is saying about the gruesome double shooting in Grant County.
Detectives are working leads right now at the Grant County Sheriff’s Office. But this is a double shooting with whole lot more questions than answers.
“Right at this point we’re kind of at a loss as to why this occurred,” Sheppard says.
Sheriff Robert Sheppard says Garry Harris died in the home. His daughter, 38-year-old Kimberly Tiger, was taken to Baptist Hospital in Little Rock. Initial reports stated she had died in transit but it now appears she may be on life support.
Detectives have few solid leads. There are no signs of struggle or forced entry and nothing was taken.
As word quickly spread about the shooting, family members arrived at the quiet Grant County home.
The Sheriff says he doesn’t know why the father and daughter were targeted.
“Mr. Harris is the kind of fellow that never has had a problem with anybody, gets along with everyone,” Sheppard says. “Co-workers know him and know him to be in a close-knit family and polite. Something like this is not supposed to happen.”
Now detectives are working to find out why it did, and even more important, who’s responsible.
Harris worked for the Pulaski County Road and Bridge Department with his wife. Today was his day off; his wife was at work when the shooting happened.
The Sheriff says he doesn’t know if the victims were targeted or if the shootings were random.
Even without that information, the Sheriff adds he doesn’t have concern for the neighborhood about possible additional attacks.
