City’s Historic Fiber Important, Say Collectors
Over the past several months, Letitia Wright of Tupelo and Leah Anderson of Jackson have been conducting a Historic Resources Survey in Batesville.

Documentation of the city’s historic fiber is in itself important, but the ultimate goal of the survey is to achieve National Register of Historic Places status as a District for a section of the City of Batesville.

During the field survey portion of the project, data will be collected and filed regarding individual properties on many of the well-known and heavily traveled streets of Batesville.

Some of the important information needed is:

  • Name or names of property owners;
  • Names of previous owners, if known;
  • Names of architects or builders associated with the property;
  • Architectural style and details of any building on the property;
  • Information about any significant persons living on the property in the past; and
  • Dates of construction; dates of alterations and additions.

Cool Million 2

Michael Rockwood of Crowder was all smiles as he laid out the tops he had collected over the past month to spell out "cool million."

Rockwood bought his last top Sunday, August 4, at Family Foods in Crowder. He does not know how many Pepsi’s he has bought in order to collect all the tops.

"Wow" was all he had to say.

Rockwood mailed the tops to the address the company provided him for the chance to win $1 million.
