The owner of a central Arkansas gun range is hoping to educate people on how to respond if they find themselves in a mass shooting.
Retired Army Lt. Colonel and former high school teacher Ed Monk hosted the free presentation.
Speaking to a small group of concerned citizens, including those who own guns and those who don't, he spoke about people needing to prepare themselves in the event of a shooting in a place like a school or church.
The campus of Arkansas State University is abuzz with the announcement of new head football coach Brian Harsin. Administrators held a press conference today in Jonesboro where Harsin laid out his plan to continue the recent success of the program. "I know that it's not just the football team. It's not just the university. It's an entire community that backs and makes all of this work. And support is what's tremendous and what's huge in continuing to get better and better," said Harsin.
On Thursday evening, crowds of people stood in long lines and later packed into the University Theatre on the campus of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock to hear a lecture by longtime social activist, author, and educator Dr. Angela Davis.
Davis was in Little Rock to support new research efforts by members of UALR’s Institute on Race and Ethnicity. The institute has assembled a diverse group of people throughout the state who are all dedicated to making constructive changes to Arkansas’s criminal justice system.
State-of-the-art science facilities, new dorms, and the construction of a $13 million student services center are just some of the noteworthy changes on the campus of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
For over 80 years, the institution’s alumni have witnessed similar transformations and some of them will return to UALR this weekend to reconnect with former classmates, remember shared experiences, and reunite with an Alma matter that once carried a different name.
