New superintendent, swamp draining, Jarub Baird, Ace Mohr featured in top November 2016 posts
At the end of the month, Harrison, Arkansas Superintendent Melinda Moss was revealed as the choice.
The search for the superintendent and the official verification that a holdover from the Huff Administration, Director of Early Childhood Education Amanda Boyer was out the door kept the school district well represented among the Top 10 posts for the month.
The list also features appearances by two young men who have had numerous run-ins with the law. Ace Mohr's bond lowered and the Carthage man was back on the streets, while another Carthage resident, Jarub Baird, who had been convicted of involuntary manslaughter 10 years earlier in connection with the death of 15-year-old Hannah Smallwood, was indicted by a federal grand jury on meth distribution and money laundering charges.
As in previous months, the Turner Report once again featured news that could not be found in other area news media, including the Ace Mohr and Jarub Baird stories, the removal of Barlass and Boyer, and an update on a holdover million dollar lawsuit from the Huff era.
