     The Sheriff’s Office worked jointly with the U. S. Army Corp of Engineers Park Rangers patrolling public campgrounds and public use areas on the North Fork River, Norfork Lake, and Bull Shoals Lake that are within Baxter County.  No serious holiday-related incidents were reported in the unincorporated areas of Baxter County.
