Amfuel has partnered with us to become the newest advertiser on magnoliareporter.com. Amfuel wants South Arkansas to know that it has job openings and the ad lists contact information for the company. People who click on the ad will be redirected to a page on the Amfuel website. In turn, it invites people to click on an “apply here” button which will take them to the ESA Staffing and Screening website. People can learn more about Amfuel’s jobs and complete an application at the ESA Staffing site. In a related note, Amfuel President Michael Accordino is scheduled to speak to the Rotary Club of Magnolia during its meeting at noon today at the LifeSmart Center. We appreciate the opportunity to help match Amfuel with prospective employees.

There will be no meeting of the Magnolia Planning Commission in July.

Los Magnolian Mexican Grill & Cantina, 426 E. Main, will have a ribbon cutting and grand opening under new owners starting at 11 a.m. Thursday, July 18. People who dine in will receive half off their tickets on the 18th.

We have drawn inspiration for our current online poll question from a recent news report. It details the results of a nation survey regarding the amount of guidance they seek from spiritual leaders.

We recorded 0.35 inches of rain overnight, for a July total of 1.16 inches and 30.40 year to date.

We're remembering that we didn't get any rain from Hurricane Katrina. In forecasts early Wednesday, the current tropical system was taking dead aim on Columbia County. But since, forecasters have been moving the track steadily eastward.
