Today's small-town newspaper of the day is the Washington County Observer, hailing from two hours east of Tulsa, serving the greater Greenland, Arkansas area. Spring has arrived, and so has the West Fork ice cream truck man, who hopes that "this is the year his small business will turn a profit." This is a terrific story about a guy who had a crappy job who found a busted old truck, fixed it up and starting making his own snow cones and lemonade. And pickle snow cones! Which apparently kids love! American hero! Also, in the (very funny) weekly video from the publisher above, he discusses web metrics, and promises that he will not kiss a pig or a donkey if they get to 1000 Facebook fans. (He is not concerned about the Foursquare.) In his spectacular Betty Boop tie! Also did you know that only five students from Arkansas got into Yale this year?
