Hi, I’m Dickie Kennemore, Mayor of Osceola.

I want you to get to know us and experience life in a quiet farm community where agriculture and industry are blended with opportunity and optimism. Ours is a very family oriented, friendly town, which is a great place to live and raise a family. Osceola has a rich history and a great future for those who will be a part of it.

Over 11,000 manufacturing jobs are located within Mississippi County, Arkansas, with 3000 of those jobs in or near the City of Osceola.

While fishing, duck hunting and deer hunting are pastimes outdoorsmen can enjoy the Osceola Community Center, Sports Complex, Municipal Golf Course and 2 miles of bicycle and walk trail are available for those who want to stay active and physically fit.

Numerous sports activities for children are sponsored throughout the year by Osceola Parks and Recreation and sports fans will also enjoy Osceola High School’s award winning football and basketball teams. Collegian sports fans can be in the center of excitement with the Arkansas Red Wolves at Arkansas State University in Jonesboro, a Tiger’s game in Memphis, or cheer for the pros with the Memphis Grizzles of the NBA or the Memphis Red Birds baseball team.

Come be a part of the future of Osceola.

What is the Zend Optimizer?

The Zend Optimizer is one of the most popular PHP plugins for performance-improvement, and has been available without charge, since the early days of PHP 4. It improves performance by scanning PHP's intermediate code and passing it through multiple Optimization Passes to replace inefficient code patterns with more efficient code blocks. The replaced code blocks perform exactly the same operations as the original code, only faster.

In addition to improving performance, the Zend Optimizer also enables PHP to transparently load files encoded by the Zend Guard.

The Zend Optimizer is a free product available for download from Zend Technologies. Zend Technologies also developed the PHP scripting engine, known as the Zend Engine.
