Ozark Natural Foods, Fayetteville’s Cooperative natural foods store, has been an iconic Fayetteville business for over four decades. They had a website early on: a solid green screen with the store’s logo and hours which they had created themselves. When they first went online, Fayetteville had no professional web designers, and in fact many of the Co-op’s shoppers didn’t even have internet access.

Tobacco reports

Tobacco reports

ATLANTA — Fourteen states, the nation’s capital and the federal government increased their cigarette taxes last year, but health officials worry that tobacco company discounts are keeping prices down. In Arkansas, at the behest of Gov. Mike Beebe, the state Legislature raised the state cigarette tax of 59 cents per pack to $1.15 per pack and increased the sales tax on other tobacco products from 32 percent to 68 percent. The increase was aimed at raising about $80 million a year for distribution among about 20 health-related programs.

Conway center ruling

Conway center ruling

A judge on Wednesday rejected the federal government’s assertion that residents of the Conway Human Development Center face imminent harm unless a court immediately halts admissions of children and orders certain practices stopped. “The Court does not take lightly the seriousness of the accusations,” Chief U.S. District Judge Leon Holmes said in an order issued in response to a March 9 request from the U.S. Department of Justice for a preliminary injunction against the center. Still, Holmes said, he must consider whether the residents are likely to suffer irreparable harm “but for immediate court intervention.”
