A new art installation by renowned eco-artist Stacy Levy is in place at Lake Fayetteville. The 129-foot-long “Spiral Wetland” structure floats on the surface of the lake near the west shore.

Southeast Fayetteville is one step closer to getting a new Kum & Go. City Council members on Tuesday approved a rezoning of the property where a dilapidated building stood at Huntsville and Happy Hollow roads.

There’s still no decision on whether the Fayetteville Farmers’ Market can expand on the downtown square. City Council members agreed Tuesday to wait another two weeks before voting on the issue.

An estimated 3,700 students will don a cap and gown this weekend as part of the University of Arkansas’ 2013 spring commencement ceremonies.
