No burn ban for Hot Spring County

July 19, 2013

Thursday morning Hot Spring County Judge Bill Scrimshire said he would probably know by Friday if he would issue a burn ban for the county. After Thursday's thunderstorms moved through, that decision became easier.

“I talked to people and everybody I talked to said they got some rain at their house,” Scrimshire said Friday. “I just wish we hadn't got some storms. It really downed some trees.”

Scrimshire said he hadn't heard much about damage around the county but a billboard on his property was damaged.

Officials update lawmakers

July 19, 2013

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — State highway officials are updating lawmakers on the road projects that will be funded with a half-cent sales tax that took effect this month.

Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department Director Scott Bennett is scheduled to appear Thursday before a legislative committee to talk about the new road projects. Voters last year approved the tax, which will raise about $1.8 billion during the next decade for the state's highway needs. The half-cent tax increase is set to expire by 2023.
