After a nearly eight-month-long coaching search, Arkansas has hired Bret Bielema as its new head football coach. Bielema, 42, comes to the Razorbacks after seven years as head coach at Wisconsin.
Mayor Lioneld Jordan held his final Town Hall Meeting of the year Monday night at the Fayetteville Boys and Girls Club. Here’s what was discussed.
A planned downtown parking deck will be built on the southeast corner of the Walton Arts Center campus at Spring Street and School Avenue. Fayetteville City Council members voted unanimously Tuesday to approve the site, which was recently recommended by Mayor Lioneld Jordan and a committee of hired consultants and city staff.
