The special recognition was organized by Clint Newcomb of Newcomb Towing.

The Arkansas Freedom of Information Act of 1967 allows citizens to obtain government records to keep the workings of the government transparent to the citizens. Any FOI requests must be returned within three working days and a person who "negligently violates" the FOIA is guilty of a Class C misdemeanor according to the official wording of the law.
