Greetings from Capps. I do believe this is about the greenest I've seen the area in mid-August due to the plentiful rains we've had lately. I'm ready to cut hay again now that it's drying out some. Capps Batavia Fire hasn't had many calls this summer, which has been a blessing. We'll do some in house training with our new recruits in September and October. We've been working very hard to improve our ISO rating, which could translate into lower homeowners insurance rates for everyone in the district. Rates have increased dramatically over the past year due to other driving forces and claims due to severe weather events. The Homesteaders Swap Meet will be held today ( Saturday) at the Capps Mini Storage on Old Capps Road just off Highway 392 West from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Check the Facebook page for what folks are bringing or looking for. Sometimes its fun just to see kids interacting with the animals. Remember to watch out for kids coming and going to school and give those school buses a brake. Blessings, Doug more

In case you were thinking about getting out to fish next Wednesday, Aug. 23, and weren't sure of your current status as an Arkansas fishing license holder, don't worry about it. You and everyone else can go out and fish for free, without a state fishing license or a trout permit, as the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission switches over Wednesday to a new licensing system. The system will be offline Wednesday, and there won't be any way to access the system or purchase a license, so the AGFC commissioners voted this week in their monthly meeting to give anglers the special one-day opportunity to fish for free, no tickets to be issued to non-license holders by game wardens. All other fishing regulations will apply, however. more
