  • WIGS - An Investment Club For Women

    Several ladies, nearly all retired, sat in the non-fiction section of the Glenwood Public library recently for their monthly meeting. Minutes from the last meeting were read, a treasurer’s report was read and a presentation was given.  From the outside, it seemed like the monthly meeting of any social club in any small town across America.  Listening in, however, one notices their treasurer’s report does not include funds coming from a bake sale.

    MALVERN - The overhaul of the former Fairview Country Club is almost complete.
        In just over a month, Mills County golfers will get their first opportunity to play a round of their favorite sport on Malvern's new Fairview Hills golf course. The course is projected to open June 1.

Scraps of paper, smudged remnants of junk mail and newspapers, litters the gravel lot. The smell, slightly less than that of garbage, festers in the air.

        No, it’s not a landfill.
        It’s the Glenwood Recycling Center.
