The Latest Business News In NEABT

JONESBORO -  Insurance. It's a factor in all of our lives these days and this week, it grabs the cover of Northeast Arkansas Business Today. NEABT takes a snapshot of the future of the industry with three of NEA's most prominent insurers.

    There's notes on the future of mass transit in Craighead County, ag news, and a tribute to Dr. Owen Clopton. After forty years in Jonesboro, Dr. Clopton is retiring.

   "At first, I've got some things to do at home." Doctor Clopton said.

    Dr. Clopton will officially start work on his "honeydo" list on April 15th.  That's the same day he hangs up his lab coat and stethoscope for the final time.

   "I think I'll miss the people who work here. First and most important, the people."

   That's a belief he picked up from his dad, who was also a doctor.

"Your relationship with patients is more important than anything else."

   After April 15, no more patients. Just plans for travel, a bigger role in his church and a quiet spot on a lake.

  "About the time I quit the fish will be starting to bite." he says with a smile.
