    Staff Report FAYETTEVILLE- Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) representatives will open a temporary office in Fayetteville to help answer questions and file claims for individuals who suffered property damage or loss during recent flooding.

    New Hangout for Teens By Susan McCarthy WEST FORK – Shrimp baskets, funnel cakes, cappuccinos, ice cream and even a little karaoke will be part of the offerings at two new places to eat in West Fork. Both “That Place” and “Lobo’s Deli Dog” will be opened in coming weeks by established business owners wanting to delve into something new. Many people haven’t met Rhonda and Tim Glenn of West Fork because they operate a wholesale business along Centennial Avenue. But restaurants throughout the southern United States are familiar with their wholesale fried pie company, Letha’s Pies. The Glenn’s employ a number of local teens and decided to open a restaurant next door to their bakery that will cater to teens in the evenings. “It will kind of give them an outlet so they don’t have to drive back into Fayetteville,” said Rhonda. “They don’t have anything to do in this town,” added Tim. “That Place” will be open from breakfast through dinner seven days a week and will offer up West Fork’s only cappuccino and espresso as well as donuts. They will also serve sub sandwiches, shrimp and chicken-strip baskets, hand-dipped ice cream and milkshakes. And Rhonda says they will, of course, offer Letha’s …
