WASHINGTON — Edging toward a retaliatory strike, President Barack Obama said Friday he is weighing "limited and narrow" action against Syria as the administration bluntly accused Bashar Assad's government of launching a chemical weapons attack that killed at least 1,429 people — far more than previous estimates — including more than 400 children.

August 30, 2013

CONWAY – The Benton Lady Panthers came out of the gates hot, but fell 3-1 to the Conway Lady Wampus Cats in Conway on Thursday night. Benton took the first set 25-18 before Conway returned the favor in the second set with a 25-18 win of its own, and won the last two sets 25-19 and 25-16.
“They’re very competitive,” Benton Coach Brandy Chumley said of Conway. “It was a good team to play to see where our weaknesses are and what we need to work on to try to get us ready for our conference play. They’re a very good team.”
