Bryant Animal Control, to date, has raised $5,000 for a proposed dog park within Alcoa Park, but a goal to begin construction later this year may not be met.
"We had hoped to break ground this fall, but unless we acquire a large sponsor or donation, we will not be financially ready to break ground on the park this year," said Tricia Power, director of Bryant Animal Control.
Currently, the department is conducting a shoe drive to collect money for the project. All of the used shoes that are collected will be sold to a nonprofit organization.
A Saline County woman was arrested Friday for allegedly stealing prescription narcotics intended for residents at the health-care facility where she worked.
Tasha Lenard, 24, of Bryant, was taken into custody after turning herself in to the Saline County Detention Center.
She is charged with two counts of obtaining a controlled substance by fraud or theft, a Class D felony.
Her arrest followed an investigation by the Attorney General's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit. Lenard has been released on a $10,000 bond.
LITTLE ROCK â€” A death row inmate will not get a new sentencing hearing for his conviction in a 1993 killing at a Little Rock laundry, as Arkansas' highest court rejected Thursday his argument that jurors didn't properly consider factors such as his troubled childhood.
In a 4-3 ruling, the state Supreme Court rejected the bid by Terrick Nooner to vacate his death sentence and send the case back to a lower court for resentencing. Nooner, 42, was convicted of killing Scot Stobaugh, 22, during a robbery. A second person also was convicted and sentenced to life in prison without parole.
