Drivers on North Street will soon have to stop at a newly installed traffic light at the Scull Creek Trail crossing. Walkers, joggers and bicyclists will have to first stop and activate a push-button signal at the intersection. The new signal will be active beginning on Monday, June 11.
We snapped some photos of the new trail tunnel under Garland Avenue (Arkansas Highway 112). It looks pretty awesome.

Wine-o’s, rejoice. The Walton Arts Center’s Art of Wine continues with two events Friday night, a Wine 101 class, and an Uncorked! Wine Tasting.
George’s has a happy hour show with Belaires and Ultra Suede. Later on, a bunch of funky dudes in mummy suits (known as Here Come the Mummies) will perform.
There’s an interesting-sounding event at Matt Miller Studio Friday night called “The Hundred Dollar War of the Words.” Performers include Mark Landon Smith, comedian Troy Gittings, children’s author Bill O Smith, musicians John Henry and the Earthshakers, and singer/songwriter Michael White. There’s also a spoken word competition with a $100 prize.
