The lifeguard stand at Sandy Beach was recently dedicated in Robert Woods’ honor. Woods, who was a ninth-grader in the Heber Springs Panthers football program, drowned at the beach last year, and that event prompted area residents to achieve the goal of having a lifeguard on duty. Members of the Panthers are shown with the new lifeguard stand.
