Local Notes

In case you missed the Shortcuts yesterday, Judge Mary Ann Gunn’s new national TV show starts Monday, the Arkansas lottery director resigned yesterday, Mayor Jordan formed a parking deck committee, and the Washington County Sheriff’s office says a local woman set her boyfriend on fire. (Shortcuts)

The Fayetteville School Board election is today. If you’re looking to do some last-minute candidate studying, last week’s candidate forum with incumbent Steve Percival and challenger James McGinty is streaming online. (FPS)

Tonight’s City Council meeting will revisit the issue of new ward boundaries in Fayetteville. We made some maps of the proposed new lines, if you’re interested. (Fayetteville Flyer)

Happy Birthday!

Locals: Kori Bartholomew, Patricia Weppler, Larry Petton, Dory Ford Sibley and Toni Luetjen.
Others: TV psychologist Dr. Joyce Brothers is 84, actress Sophia Loren is 77 and actor Gary Cole is 55.

Tuesday To-do

There are plenty of options for Tuesday night fun tonight in Fayetteville.

Psycho-surf rockers Daikaiju return to Fayetteville tonight at Smoke & Barrel Tavern. Ohio’s Ampline opens the show.
