AG&FC opens hiking trail

July 26, 2013

ARKADELPHIA, Ark. (AP) — Arkadelphia city officials are poised to open the DeSoto Bluff Trail, using funds from the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.
The dedication and ribbon-cutting will be next Tuesday at 10 a.m. in Arkadelphia.

The 2.5-mile hiking trail winds through a secluded natural area and ends at DeSoto Bluff, which is named for explorer Hernando de Soto, who searched the area for gold. The Game and Fish Commission's Wildlife Observation Trails Pilot Program provided $80,125.

Interpretive signs have been erected along the trail to point out wildlife.

Who was Claude Mann and why is the Malvern stadium named after him?

July 26, 2013

It was 1991. New to town, there were plenty of questions that needed to be answered. So I asked.

That was the first question I had. Almost nobody had an answer. Turns out the only theory I had was it was named after a town in West Virginia.

Another question took years to answer. Malvern High School’s football field is named Claude Mann Stadium.

“Who is Claude Mann?”

Breaking down the schedule — Glen Rose

July 26, 2013

In our last installment, we broke down the schedule of the Malvern Leopards in the 4A Classification.

Today, we’re going to step down one class and look at the Beavers of Glen Rose, a team that made it to the 3A state championship game. They seemingly had the game won, but Harding Academy set up a brilliant set of plays in the last half-minute to score a touchdown and win the game.
