The Fayetteville Firefighters Association will host the first ever Hero Half Marathon on Saturday, Oct. 18.

A Fayetteville public service announcement took top honors in its category at last weekend’s Mid-America Emmy Awards.

In case you missed it, we have local craft beer news on festivals, expansions, and the loss of a local brewery pioneer.

Public meetings this week include Urban Forestry Advisory Board, Airport Board, and Historic District Commission.
