News Briefs

Civil War Arkansas, 1861-1865

The Fayetteville Public Library is the latest stop for “Civil War Arkansas, 1861-1865,” a traveling exhibit about the state’s involvement in the Civil War.

Speaking of FPL, the library this month will also host two public forums with the final two candidates for the vacant executive director position.

The inaugural recipe for our new soup series is a delicious Roasted Cauliflower Soup topped off with crispy, delicate and insanely delicious parmesan crisps.

It was a great weekend for Razorback sports. After a 29-16 win over Kansas State in the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic on Friday night, the Arkansas football team tied a school record of 11 wins in one season. The very next day, the men’s basketball team improved to 12-3 after a 98-88 upset win over No. 15 Mississippi State.
