Years ago, a good bit of agriculture-related news appeared in front-page stories of the local newspaper. Indeed, in 1915, Arkadelphia’s Southern Standard addressed issues connected to planting, and told of many of the growing season’s firsts as the year progressed. Legends and lore, as well as factual information, were all included in the paper’s stories.
