Week in review (1/16-1/22)

By: 23 January 2011 No Comment

It’s been quite a week here at First Arkansas News and we’re well aware that a lot of our readers were likely busy, too.

For those wanting to play a little catch up, we’ve got you covered — just click on the below stories to see what you might have missed over the past few days.

Yes, we are in the habit of posting these “week in review” articles and we hope that makes it easy for some people to keep up with us. However, there are better ways to follow the newest stories here. We’ve got an RSS feed, offer those convenient email updates and, of course, we’re also on Facebook and Twitter (just click the appropriate link to sign up through your favorite delivery service). Signing up for any of those services is free and always will be, so click away and go nuts.

Here are the stories that ran last week:

* Those can-do youths at Parkview United Methodist Church — there are some big changes in store for these kids. Want to see what’s new?

* Plunging for Special Olympics Arkansas — a Benton Realtor jumps into a very cold lake to raise money for a good cause.

* December home sales up in northwest Arkansas — a bit of a pleasant surprise.

* Miss Arkansas Alyse Eady appears on David Letterman — ’nuff said.

* U of A announced 2011 football schedule — who will the Razorbacks play next year and when?

* A lot of reviews of portable gaming systems — we went all portable last week and reviewed the Atari Lynx, Sega Game Gear and Nintendo Game Boy.

* Franklin Graham exhorts JBU community to spread the Gospel — John Brown University in Siloam Springs has a special guest.

* CCOA offers tips to conquer post-holiday bills — spend too much money during the holidays? Maybe Credit Counseling of Arkansas can help.

* Reporter’s Notebook — snow day. Central Arkansas got very little in the way of snow last week, but that wasn’t the same for northwest Arkansas. Head on over and look at some photos.

* Weekend OTR: Tales of the Texas Rangers — Blood Trail. That’s right — more old time radio.

* Big Thermos Media — for all your advertising needs. We’ve got a new advertising plan in place.
