The National Weather Service has issued a tornado watch until 10 p.m. Monday in Northwest Arkansas. The watch includes seven counties: Benton, Carroll, Crawford, Franklin, Madison, Sebastian and Washington.

It’s been a bit of a whirlwind year for the Old Post Office, but it looks as though the building at the center of the Fayetteville square could have a new owner soon.

Fayetteville Foam Fest organizers on Thursday announced that the event netted $15,000 for local food charity Feed Fayetteville.

This week’s scheduled public meetings include the Town & Gown Advisory Committee, the Fayetteville City Council, the NWA Regional Planning Commission and more.
