LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) â€” A Little Rock water park closed this week after health officials said the facility was likely the source of a rare and often deadly brain infection, the Arkansas Department of Health said Friday.
ARKADELPHIA, Ark. (AP) â€” 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.

Another question took years to answer. Malvern High Schoolâ€™s football field is named Claude Mann Stadium.
â€śWho is Claude Mann?â€ť
