News Briefs

Those hoping for an expanded public library in downtown Fayetteville can breathe a sigh of relief. The Washington Regional Medical Center board voted last week to sell the former City Hospital property to the Fayetteville Public Library, which plans to nearly double its campus by building an 80,000-square-foot expansion facility.

Country music star and Arkansas native Justin Moore is coming to Fayetteville this fall. MMoore will perform a free concert in Lot 56 outside Razorback Stadium on Friday, Sept. 13, the evening before the Arkansas-Souther Mississippi football game.

Our latest beer review is Sam Adams Octoberfest. While it won’t necessarily blow your mind, it’s consistently good year-to-year and makes a nice companion on a cool late summer/early fall evening.
