This week’s featured pets available for adoption at the Fayetteville Animal Shelter include Mr. Tucker, a 3-year-old Pointer Hound and Gems, a 6-month-old kitty who loves cameras.

It was a wet weekend at the 2012 Harvest Music Festival, but the rain didn’t prevent folks from seeing some great shows on Mulberry Mountain over the course of the three-day event. We’ve posted two sets of photos from Flyer contributor Eric Chitwood. (Check ’em out: Set 1, Set 2)

As always, we have a very brief recap of action taken at last night’s City Council meeting. It was a long one.

You might see a bunch of people playing video games in the parking lot of Smoke and Barrel Tavern this Saturday. Actually, you might see people playing video games in a few parking lots around town over the next few days. Here’s why.
