Tammy Curtis, Managing Editor

So to speak

I have been the person whose writing career began when I was about 10, and started as a diary and progressed to poetry in middle and high school. I was probably the only kid who loved to write papers in high school and made a little money at it. I have won many Arkansas Press awards for my editorials and stories and love to cover the communities in the small rural area where I have lived my entire life. I have been married for 28 years, my husband and I have a grown daughter and son, a fat Shitzu and a special needs white dog that we inherited from our daughter. Most of my spare time is spent in our pool or at the lake camping. I have one passion and that is writing the stories of the people of this area and one pet peeve and that is corruption. I try to utilize my job as an editor and writer to bring truth to the readers and honestly have no issue being the "bad guy" if I have to, but more often than not, I get the privilege of introducing our readers to the wonderful people of the area through our news and magazine articles. I love this community and have loved serving our readers since 2006, first as a graphic designer, then reporter and now, editor.
