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.
It was 1991. New to town, there were plenty of questions that needed to be answered. So I asked.
â€śWhat is Malvern named for?â€ť

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

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) â€” Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel is warning about two phone scams going on in the state.
McDaniel says his office has received a number of reports that people claiming to be with credit card companies or the government are trying to obtain credit card or bank numbers.
McDaniel says one scam involves a person alleging to be with a credit card company and saying the would-be victim's credit cards are locked and that their credit numbers are needed to unlock the cards. He says credit card companies would already know the customers' card number.
