TEXARKANA, Texas (AP) â€” A service will be held Wednesday for a Texas police officer who died after being hit by a truck during a disturbance at a park.
Texarkana police say a suspect was being held Sunday over the death of Officer William Sprague.
Sprague was hurt early Friday responding to a call about fights that broke out as about 100 people were at Grady T. Wallace Park. Police later arrested a man on a charge of aggravated assault of a public servant. The charge could be upgraded due to Saturday's death of Sprague.
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) â€” A former Fayetteville developer has been ordered to jail until his trial on federal fraud charges.
Defense Attorney Asa Hutchinson III told television station KHOG that the judge ruled Friday that Barber violated the terms of his home incarceration. Federal prosecutors had asked that Barber's home incarceration be revoked because he allegedly traveled without permission.
Barber is charged with bank fraud, bankruptcy fraud, money laundering and conspiracy to commit those crimes. His first trial is scheduled in September.
He has pleaded not guilty.

A year ago I penned a column lamenting the fact that so many parks in the area had turned into ghost towns.
Not too long after that column was written I started seeing more and more people take advantage of healthy (and free) form of entertainment for themselves and their children.
Well folks, it is that time of year again. The weather is getting to that nice 90-100 degree area and rain is getting more and more scarce.

Recently the Arkansas Activities Association announced the new conferences for the 2014-2016 scholastic sports calendar.
A lot of things stayed the same with many local teams staying in conferences with teams they have been dealing with for years, but there are some significant changes.
Every couple of years, the Arkansas Activities Association has to change its conference alignments to coincide with the growing (or shrinking) enrollment of the 290 schools that are a part of high school athletic system.
The new cycle starts this fall, which covers the 2013-2014 through 2015-2016 season.
