BONO, AR - A Bono couple and the city have worked out a mutually beneficial arrangement.
Kenneth and Barbara Smith are enjoying their golden years tending a garden on a narrow strip of earth owned by the city and Burltington Northern-Santa Fe railroad. The Smiths lease the land from the railroad company while the city allows the couple to garden there. That's one less strip for city crews to maintain. And Barbara and Kenneth Smith have a bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables to enjoy from their roadside garden.
