El Dorado Police and Fire Department Chaplain, Dr. Sterling Claypoole (pictured in uniform), waits to help unveil the Arkansas 9-11 Memorial during a cer-
emony at this year's SouthArk Outdoor Expo. The Memorial features a 700-pound piece of twisted steel from Tower I of the fallen World Trade Center. Among
the inscriptions on the monument's granite are the names of the Arkansas citizens that died in the attacks of September 11, 2001. The Memorial is permanently
located on the grounds of the El Dorado Conference Center and is open to the public. (inset) Part of the unveiled Memorial.         more photos on pages 6 & 7
