Drivers will get a closer look at the city’s new roundabout at North Hills Boulevard at Futrall Drive near Washington Regional Medical Center beginning Tuesday, Nov. 27.

It’s holiday market season in Fayetteville and we’ve found several opportunities over the next few days to pick up some locally made arts, crafts, jewelry, and other stuff for your friends and loved ones.

It was a tough weekend for Razorback sports. The football team lost its final game of the season to LSU and the basketball team lost to Arizona State and to Wisconsin at the 2012 Las Vegas Invitational tournament.

It’s no surprise, but in other Razorback news, the UA informed John L. Smith that his contract will not be renewed as head coach of the Razorback football team on Saturday.
