READY TO PLAY
The Phillips County Development Center has been in need of playground for children 0-3 years of age. The services provided by the Development Center include a regu-
lar daycare as well as daycare for children with special needs or disabilities. Services available by the Center include physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech
therapy. Playgrounds provide both crucial and vital opportunities for children to play and interact. It helps them to learn many skills including social, motor, and even some
emotional skills. The PCDC applied for a grant through the Helena Health Foundation and received a $43,926 to help with the projected amount of nearly $54,000. Photo

Friday in their season opening game at Palestine-
Facing poor field position most of the game
and suffering four turnovers, all of which led to
Palestine-Wheatley touchdowns, the Mustangs,
using a duel quarterback system and a full house
backfield most of the time, fell behind quickly
and couldn’t recover in a 42-6 loss.
Palestine-Wheatley’s overall game effort by
against the Mustangs wasn’t the best of the young
season, but it was good enough for their first win
of the season which ended the Patriots’ 12-game
losing streak dating back to the 2018 season.
Palestine-Wheatley, with just a 25-man roster,
opened the year with a 43-6 loss to Des Arc and a
28-27 loss last week to Marked Tree.
Palestine-Wheatley’s 42-point outburst marked
the third time the team has scored 42 points over
the past two seasons. The Patriots scored 42
points during the 2018 season in wins over Clar-
endon and Pine Bluff Dollarway.
Marvell’s lone touchdown came on a 61-yard
