JACKSONVILLE, Ark. (AP) â€” Military officials locked down an Arkansas air force base for several hours Wednesday after reporting that a suspicious individual was on the sprawling complex near Little Rock, then reopened the base and said the threat was "no longer credible."
During the lockdown, no one was allowed to enter or leave the base. Gates were closed and a line of vehicles stretched for a quarter-mile outside of the base.
The Advertising and Promotions (A&P) tax exploratory committee decided Monday morning to pursue a 2 percent special sales tax on both city lodging and prepared foods. Committee member Mike Bailey, owner of Western Sizzlin in Malvern, said he has been polling his customers about the tax proposal and said they are more likely to vote for the tax if it was only on lodging.
