Saline Courier note: There have been several wildfires in the area in recent weeks, and Saline County is still under a burn ban. Here is the AP story on the issue.
LITTLE ROCK â€” Weather forecasters say Arkansas is showing signs of a developing drought and the state Forestry Commission is warning of a heightened fire danger.
CLEVELAND â€” Three women who police say were held captive in a Cleveland home for about a decade have issued a video in which they thanked the public for the encouragement and financial support that are allowing them to restart their lives.
Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight broke their public silence in the 3-minute, 30-second video posted Monday night on YouTube. They said the support and prayers of family, friends and the public are allowing them to rebuild their lives after what Berry called "this entire ordeal."
