Week in Review (June 9-15)

By: 16 June 2013 One Comment

Week in ReviewFirst off, happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there. Make your kids be nice to you for a change if you, indeed, have that much authority.

Second, we’ve had a busy week (as usual) here at First Arkansas News and would have for our tens of fans to miss out on anything. To that end, we’re doing our weekly thing of posting links to everything that’s been posted in the past week for your clicking pleasure. Yes, we wrote about everything from crepe myrtle thieves in Benton to the Southern Baptist Convention getting mad at the Boy Scouts. We got a few more details about the Hyperkin Retron 5, posted a few details about Apple iOS 7 and wrote about an awesome site that is resource central for fans of classic consoles everywhere.
