LEWISVILLE â€” An Arkansas woman and her hunting team have killed a 10-foot, 6-inch alligator at a private lake near Lewisville.
The Texarkana Gazette reports Denise Smillie harpooned and fatally shot the 650-pound reptile last week.
Smillie, her husband, son and others went to the lake near the Red River at night. She says it took two harpoons and 45 minutes of struggle to bring the alligator to the surface, where she killed it with a 12-gauge shotgun.
They had to hold the gator in the water as they made their way to shore because it was too big to fit in the boat.
Starting Oct. 1, people who have a membership to The Center at Bishop Park will be able to take part in fitness classes at no extra cost.
These classes will include KidsFit, yoga, FitCamp, Piyo Live, Zumba and water aerobics.

Saline County Quorum Court met Tuesday night in a brief session, but acted on a number of issues.
All ordinances submitted were approved unanimously by the 12 members present of the 13-member court.
It was noted that Justice of the Peace Buster Warrick currently is seriously ill and is a patient in an area hospital.
One of the ordinances approved by the JPs appropriates $80,000 for land acquisition costs to the road department.
