On a drive to visit Heber Springs and the Little Red River in Cleburne County, I had to stop and get a picture of one of my favorite overlooks. This is part of Greer’s Ferry Lake taken on a beautiful, sunny morning. My father-in-law, Louis Bona, who worked for the Corp of Engineers, helped to design the dam that formed this lake in 1962. After completion, the lake was dedicated on Oct. 3, 1963 by John F. Kennedy.
