Quotes

"Without oxygen the pests go to sleep and never wake up; it’s really that simple" David Jones, founder of the company, said in a statement...
"As a socially responsible company, traceable, transparent sourcing of palm oil is an important concern, and we are collaborating with our suppliers to make sure the palm oil we use is not associated with deforestation, climate change or the violation of human rights" said Diane Holdorf of Kellogg
"There are things that we can do together. We talk about Sparks, we talk about Mercy, we talk about independent physician groups — but when you think about it, Mercy physicians are on staff at Sparks and Sparks physicians are on staff at Mercy. And Cooper physicians are on staff at both places. Mercy Clinic physicians refer to Cooper Clinic physicians. And the circle just goes on and on and on. So basically, we're in this together, we just have to figure out how to put this together in the new marketplace that's going to incentives population management, it's going to expect better outcomes at a lower price. We're going to have to figure those things out. I don't have a lot of answers on that, but I do know it involves more physicians."
"I’ve had the honor and privilege to work with Representative Terry Rice in the legislature for the last four years.  I know him to be a man of utmost character.  He understands Western Arkansas values and will always do what is right no matter the consequences.  I’m proud to call him my friend. I hope you will join me in supporting him in the Republican Primary on May 20th. ”"
