Fayetteville’s Asbell Elementary school was named as one of 50 winners of a $100,000 grant from Target Corporation and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The grant is part of a plan by Target to award $1 billion in support of education by the end of 2015.

A 5,600-square-foot co-working facility will soon open in the Metro District building off Dickson Street. The space, called The Iceberg, is a project of the Northwest Arkansas Entrepreneurship Alliance a nonprofit organization founded by 2009 UA Fay Jones School of Architecture graduate Josh Clemence and Fayettechill clothing company owner Maurice Elliot.

We’ve got four pairs of tickets to give away to the upcoming Railroad Earth show at George’s. Try to win!
