Interesting reportorial remark in an article in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette today on Benton's hope to improve its image with a new convention center:

Saline County could have become economically stressed after the reduction of its major industry [aluminum], but during that period the county’s population began to swell as it became a bedroom community for people looking for comfortable suburban homes to complement their urban jobs.

The reporter forgot to add the favorite phrase from Saline County real estate companies about the county's allure — "safe schools."
