Savers Savings Association of Little Rock, the failed thrift which operates a branch in Conway, is expected to close and be sold today. Savers has been operated by the federal government since Fe. 10, 1989, and was the second largest savings and loan in Arkansas to be declared insolvent and taken over by the government.

Wednesday may have marked the first time Sallie Cone Elementary students attended an Excel character assembly, but getting energized was not a problem. The assembly kicked off Sallie Cone elementary School’s newly-formed relationship with Excel, a local healthy choices organization. A group of leaders from Excel visited the students to get them excited about upcoming programs. Katrina Hobbs, also known as Miss Respect, of Excel told the students she and her friends, Mr. Respect and Miss Responsibility, were going to come out once a month to Sallie Cone and hold an assembly. The students seemed to approve the idea with shouts of joy.
