    The Jonesboro Advertising and Promotion Commission has decided to give its support for helping fund a hotel and convention center in Jonesboro. The Commission on Friday decided that it would provide tax rebates for the O’Reilly Hospitality Management’s project to place a 202-bed Embassy Suites Hotel, a Houlihan’s Restaurant and a 40,000-square foot convention center on the campus of Arkansas State University. The commission’s decision does not give money to the project up front, but it will give a three-percent A&P tax rebate over a ten-year period once the project is up and running. The funding would stop after either after ten years or the rebates cap $2.5 million, whichever comes first. Jonesboro Mayor Harold Perrin was attending the National League of Cities convention in Charlotte, North Carolina Friday when the decision was made by the A&P Commission.

    More than three miles of newly constructed lanes on the Monette Bypass (State Highway 18) in Craighead County will be opened to traffic, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ArDOT) officials. Weather permitting, the completed four-lane section will be open to traffic on Monday, November 20 , allowing motorists to travel around Monette on the new bypass. Drivers will have to utilize State Highway 139 to travel in and out of Monette until the east and west connectors are constructed, which is expected to take 2 to 4 weeks. Work began in March 2016 on this $14 million bypass, which includes constructing four box culverts, a 329-foot bridge over Cockle Burr Slough, and new lanes. The project (CA1001) is part of the Connecting Arkansas Program (CAP), which is funded through a 10-year, half-cent sales tax. More information on this project is available at ConnectingArkansasProgram.com . Drivers should exercise caution when approaching and traveling through all highway work

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A man charged with crashing his vehicle into Arkansas' Ten Commandments display nearly three years after he was accused of destroying a monument at Oklahoma's Capitol has been found mentally unfit to go to trial. A Pulaski County judge on Thursday found Michael Tate Reed unfit to proceed and ordered him to be held by the state hospital for further evaluation. Judge Chris Piazza set a September 2018 hearing on Reed's mental status. Reed faces a felony criminal mischief charge for destroying Arkansas' privately funded Ten Commandments statue in late June, less than 24 hours after it had been installed outside the state Capitol. Reed was arrested in the 2014 destruction of Oklahoma's Ten Commandments monument, but prosecutors declined to pursue criminal charges in that case.

  • Arkansas man seeks DNA retesting in murder case Arkansas man seeks DNA retesting in murder case

    DE QUEEN, Ark. (AP) - An Arkansas man who was previously scheduled for execution is pleading for additional DNA testing to prove he's innocent in a 1993 murder. The Texarkana Gazette reports that Stacey Eugene Johnson has been twice convicted of the murder of Carol Heath. Johnson was among eight inmates who were scheduled for execution in April, but the Arkansas Supreme Court granted a last-minute stay so he could seek more DNA tests in hopes of proving his innocence. Witnesses at Wednesday's hearing in De Queen discussed the improvements in DNA testing since the original tests were run nearly 25 years ago. The prosecutor defended the DNA testing methods conducted in two previous trials. Three other inmates who were scheduled for execution received stays. The state eventually executed four inmates over a two-week period. ___ Information from: Texarkana Gazette, http://www.texarkanagazette.com

    First responders in northeast Arkansas are to receive training in life-saving medical techniques. A 142-thousand dollar grant from Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield’s Blue and You Foundation will train over 600 law enforcement officers and firefighters in how to save lives with the use of advanced first aid kits and tourniquets. Dr. Spencer Guinn has advocated for tourniquets to be in the hands of all first responders in the state, as well as citizens. He tells why this would be important for citizens to be equipped, especially while traveling on highways: “If you are involved in a crash on a two-lane road, you may be the only person within 30 minutes that has had any basic medical training,” says Guinn. “If you wait that long for EMS to arrive, a bleeding victim could die before help arrives.” Dr. Spencer Guinn presides over the Jonesboro-based Stop the Bleeding Foundation. He says this would be important in the event of car crashes or severe storms. Guinn says tourniquets count

    The 60-day duck season starts this weekend in Arkansas. The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission and the U-S Fish and Wildlife Service are predicting a record number of ducks to come into Arkansas. Trey Reid is Assistant Chief of Communications with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. He says a record 50-million ducks are expected to come south for the winter. Reid says that has followed a trend over the past several years. “Over the past several years, we have had record or near record numbers,” says Reid. “We are just slightly below where we were last year, but not by much. The question now is trying to find out when they will get here and how many will come. Those questions are usually determined on weather and water.” Reid says a cold and wet winter will bode well for duck hunters and will increase the number of ducks that will come to Arkansas. Reid says Arkansas has a geographical advantage in attracting large numbers of ducks. Ducks will fly south for the winter and like being

Bryant served on the Quorum Court for 27 years. Craighead County Judge Ed Hill said it was hard being at the meeting last night without Bryant. Hill told what he remembered most about how Bryant served on the Quorum Court. "He was an advocate for the employees of this county and their families," says Hill. "He would do whatever he could to make sure the employees got as much as they could by way of salaries and benefits. Even in tough times, he was always looking out for them. He will be missed." The Public Service Committee of the Quorum Court will send to the full court a resolution at the next meeting declaring a vacancy in district 3. Once the Quorum Court approves that resolution, it will go to the Governor’s office. Governor Hutchinson will then appoint someone to fill out the remainder of the term.

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - An Arkansas lawmaker says the Legislature's tax overhaul task force is looking to determine which of the state's sales-tax exemptions should be kept and which should be abandoned. The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that PFM Consulting Group presented a report to the task force Tuesday with 7-year-old state estimates of financial impact of the exemptions. The report says that more than 100 sales-tax exemptions reduced revenue by $1.4 billion in fiscal 2011. It cites estimates from the state Department of Finance and Administration. The report also says Arkansas collected $3.3 billion in sales tax for fiscal 2017, which ended in June. Task force co-chairman Republican Sen. Jim Hendren has asked finance department officials to create "a hypothetical" proposal for cutting the top income tax rate if the state had no sales-tax exemptions. ___ Information from: Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, http://www.arkansasonline.com
