Ridge High School, said prin­ci­pal Gary Way­man. Wentz is in his fourth year as a sci­ence teacher at the school.

It is ev­ery­one’s de­sire that all chil­dren have a happy Christ­mas, and many folks in our area are ex­pe­ri­enc­ing hard eco­nomic times. For the past eight years, the Pea Ridge Area Min­is­te­rial Al­liance has put to­gether the Pea Ridge com­mu­nity’s An­gel Tree. Again this year, the An­gle Tree will be set up in City Hall. Pa­per an­gels will tell a child’s age, gen­der, size and a gift idea. All other in­for­ma­tion is kept con­fi­den­tial. The an­gels are se­lected by peo­ple who will bring gifts which the Al­liance will de­liver.
