Residents of a North Little Rock neighborhood go to the polls Tuesday to decide whether to allow the sale of alcohol.
The Park Hill neighborhood has been dry since 1966, but business leaders believe allowing the sale of alcohol could revive the area and bring restaurants to the stretch of John F. Kennedy Boulevard, between I-40 and McCain Boulevard.
220 people took part in early voting last week, election officials report.
Governor Mike Beebe had proclaimed this week as Winter Weather Awareness Week across Arkansas.
The state Department of Emergency Management is encouraging residents to prepare themselves for wintry weather that can include snow and ice.
Bottled water and foods that don't need to be heated or refrigerated should be kept in homes. Automobiles should be winterized and residents are advised to put in their vehicles items such as blankets, flash lights, water, food and a first aid kit.
