No extended hours at post offices on tax night

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (USPS) – Millions of Americans wait until the last minute to file their tax returns. This year is no different. Filers have until 12 midnight on Tuesday, April 15 to drop off their completed returns. The Postal Service will not be adding any additional window hours or collection times.

Officer in Charge Paula McDore is urging customers to be aware of this change. "The latest window hours and collection time is 8:00 p.m. at the Little Rock Processing & Distribution Center located at 4700 E. McCain, North Little Rock."

"Customers can be assured all mail dropped in the blue collection boxes at the Processing & Distribution Center location until 8 p.m. will receive an April 15 postmark. Although the deadline is Tuesday April 15, customers are urged to drop off returns as early as possible," says McDore.

CABOT, Ark. (Cabot PD) - The Cabot Police Department will be having a fund raiser at Larry’s Pizza at 2797 Southfork on November 26, 2013 from 5 pm to 9 pm. Cabot Police Officers will be serving and helping customers during those times for tips. All tips and donations will go to support our C.O.P.S. Toy Patrol that we will be doing in December for children of our local schools.

C.O.P.S. stands for Cabot Officers Playing Santa, and they are ready for their next assignment: TOY PATROL. This is a great program in Cabot where our local police officers can have a positive impact on our young people. C.O.P.S. Toy Patrol allows boys and girls to Christmas shop with one of our Cabot police officers at Wal-Mart in Cabot. This will be the second year that our officers are doing the TOY PATROL.

It's not too late for Christmas deliveries

It's not too late for Christmas deliveries

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - If you still haven't sent out your holiday gifts yet, you still have some time, and a few options. Though the deadline for pre-Christmas delivery via FedEx Ground is December 17th, last-minute shippers still have options. More than 82 percent of all packages shipped via FedEx Ground are delivered in three business days or less. Plus, procrastinators have until Saturday, December 22nd to ship items via FedEx Express for delivery in the continental U.S. on December 24th.   

As online and in-store shoppers check off their lists, FedEx expects to see more than 280 million shipments pass through its worldwide shipping networks during the holiday season. To manage the extra volume, FedEx has increased its workforce by approximately 20,000 seasonal positions.

Get ready for Cabot Farmer's Market

Get ready for Cabot Farmer's Market

It is time to get those tillers tuned-up and your garden’s seeds ready!

The Cabot Farmers’ Market, in conjunction with Cabot City Beautiful, Inc. (CCB), is looking for local vendors.

This will be our fifth year and it already promises to be an even bigger market.  With the current economic atmosphere, many people are turning towards backyard gardens.  Many people can use this venue to supplement their income from selling at a market.

“A farmers market contributes to the social and economic welfare of a town and helps produce a strong sense of community identity together.” said Matt Webber, co-market manager.  The farmer’s market will stand as a common ground were people can interact with local farmers & fellow residents of the community, as well as a local source of fresh produce.
