Former President Bill Clinton led a dedication ceremony Friday in Little Rock for a new $10.5 million pedestrian and cycling pathway over the Arkansas River, which was built inside an old railroad bridge.
He was joined by his wife, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, daughter Chelsea, and the mayors of Little Rock and North Little Rock.
"This bridge is important because first, it keeps the promise we made," Clinton told the crowd.
An Arkansas singer is hoping to show how the childhood of Bill Clinton helped shape the future president. She is putting together an opera that is a day in the life of the then 14-year-old Clinton growing up in Hot Springs.
The production is to be called Billy Blythe, which is the name Clinton went by until he adopted his step-father's last name in high school. It's the brainchild of 30-year-old Bonnie Montgomery.
