The 2012 Wakarusa music and camping festival kicks off today on Mulberry Mountain near Ozark, Arkansas. Here are a few photos from yesterday afternoon on the festival grounds.
Fayetteville planning commissioners are set to review plans for a new Arvest Bank branch at the southwest corner of College Avenue and Township street on the site of a long vacant car dealership.
To better gauge public opinion on the administration’s lower grade reconfiguration plan, the Fayetteville School District has scheduled five public meetings to be held at separate schools throughout the city in June.
