Arkansas River Revival runs Oct. 20-29

Arkansas River Revival runs Oct. 20-29

Forty years ago, President Richard Nixon dedicated the Arkansas River Navigation System, which was, at the time, the largest civil works project ever undertaken by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Named for its principal advocates, Senator John L. McClellan (Arkansas) and Senator Robert Kerr (Oklahoma), today the system is responsible for nearly $2 billion in trade transportation in Arkansas annually. In addition, the river provides a wealth of unique recreational and outdoor activities for Arkansas communities and families, as well as visitors to The Natural State.

To highlight the need for further economic development, the Arkansas River Connections is hosting the “Arkansas River Revival,” a 10-day flotilla event along the Arkansas River, October 20-29, 2011.

Runners and walkers arrived at 7 a.m. to prepare for the race. The new timing system and finish line chute gave more efficient and accurate race results which gave the participants an added incentive to complete the race. While this year’s race was not the largest in Barn Sale 5K history, it came in at a close second with 105 participants that registered for the race and 98 that actually ran/walked.

Conservative turkey season again proposed by AGFC

PINE BLUFF – Biologists with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission today proposed continuing the conservative turkey season structure, which has been in place since 2007. If approved at the October meeting, the season would be 18 days for most of the state with an additional two-day youth hunt.

The proposed season would begin April 14, 2012, and continue through May 1, 2012, in zones 1, 2, 3, 4B, 5, 5B, 6, 7, 7A, 8, 9, 10 and 17. In zones 4, 4A, 5A and 9A, it would run April 14-24, 2012. Zone 1A would remain closed. A youth hunt is proposed for April 7-8, 2012, in all open zones.

The Wildlife Management Bureau arrived at the conservative season after reviewing turkey season harvest information, and brood survey and gobbling chronology figures for the past several years.

Bag limits would remain the same as last year. The statewide bag limit is two adult gobblers or bearded hens, no jakes.

PINE BLUFF, Ark. – Lonza Hardy, Jr. will resign from his position as athletics director at Hampton University effective September 6, 2011. Hardy, who has held the post since 2007, will become Athletics Director at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff.

"We are very privileged to have been able to recruit someone with his qualifications and accomplishments," said Dr. Lawrence A.
