AR-U Computing Computer Sales/Service in Batesville – Available to Assist Everyone in this High Tech World in which we so live!! (Posted by Ginger Smith)

The world is definitely a high-tech place now in every way for youth and adults, all businesses, and games, our phones, etc.  Our schools all teach our kids at a very young age to be computer efficient!  So, we all may have heard the term, GIGO.  That means Garbage In, Garbage Out.  I learned that years ago in my first computer class at Gateway, now UACCB. It means a computer has to be told what to do, sort of.  Well, if you have done all you know to do, and you can’t get your business page online, or Facebook browsing, or online school classes, or check your email, you have a great business right here in Batesville to help you!  A relative pointed me to him when my laptop had issues with the thingy that plugs in the back of the what-cha-ma-call-it.  Anywho.  I can say I am very satisfied with the job Ross and Josh did on fixing my laptop, and the price was so affordable!  But, you can’t just walk in and leave.  Look at what he sells!  I ended up buying a Microsoft refurbished tablet that actually purrs when I touch the screen!  They ordered me a keyboard and heavy duty cover with Armour Shield for the front of it, and I have a new favorite!  Give them a shot!

Josh and Ross can fix anything, and they actually explain what happened and how they fixed it; such hints are really a bonus!  I now have some new friends, I have their phone number, and when anything weird pops up, one of them always answers the phone.  They are honest and highly proficient and knowledgeable in all computer technology and personable young men, who will do what it takes to get you back to your tech, whether for pleasure or work!  Tell them Ginger sent ya!!

Ginger Smith joined OGTC in 2014 as a volunteer, and has lived in this area since 1972 when she moved to be near her parents, the late Doss and Vivian Burgess. Her late father was Independence County Appraiser and any time family, whether kids or grand kids, came to visit for even a short time, he would take them to A.D. Hill’s grocery store, and get them a soda pop and candy bar, see the talking bird there, and end up “checking out the great White River.” All the kids and grands have played on the banks there, picnicked, and played on the old train. Ginger is adamant, since she moved to Batesville, there is just no other place to raise a family. Her love for the area and desire to help promote it in her professional capacity led her to seek volunteering, and Charlie Morris, whom she met when she was a typesetter at the Daily Guard Newspaper, put her in touch with Cathy Drew, Executor Director of OGTC. She has been on board since then and says she has loved everything she has done and is proud to represent North Central Arkansas.
The last 20 years of her employment she worked for the late County Judge David Wyatt, West Elementary School Principal Jerry Harris, and Circuit Clerk Claudia Nobles and Judge John Kemp. At the Guard Office she says she made friends for a life time, and then the West Elementary teachers, students, and their families grew close to her forever. Her last job she was hired in a newly created position to collect felony fines and restitution. She was so proud that after three years she more than tripled the annual revenues that she retired! Her part-time retirement job was with the ortho docs, Drs. Allen and Angel where she also met many people from all over the area, and made another set of new friends! She is a published writer and has also written feature articles for the Batesville Guard TV Guide and the Arkansas Democrat Gazette.
She has a daughter, Misty Long Sparks, son-in-law Dloyd Sparks, and three grands, Dalton Lee, Victoria Lynn and Anna Rose, who own her heart, and three more heartbeat grands, Nico and Corbin of Washington, and a late granddaughter, Ginger Savannah. Her late husband, Ken Smith, was the Batesville Postmaster.
Totally retired now, Ginger offers her time and writing abilities to OGTC as she travels around the state and visits with so many nice folks, writes reviews, and tries to be a worthy representative for Ozark Gateway Tourism. She is a people person who really cares for all God has blessed us with in our beautiful state of Arkansas in the United States of America.
