Lyon presents A Midsummer Night’s Dream as first main stage production of season

BATESVILLE, Ark. (Lyon College) - A mostly freshmen class will present Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream as Lyon College’s first main stage production of the season Oct. 2-5. Show times are 7:30 p.m. Oct. 2-4 and 2 p.m. Oct. 5 in Holloway Theatre on campus.

Dr. Fonzie Geary II, assistant professor of theatre, said ticket prices were lowered this season to make shows even more accessible to the community. Admission is now $5 for adults and $3 for students and senior citizens. Lyon faculty, staff, and students get in free with a Lyon I.D.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is one of Shakespeare’s most popular works. The comedy centers on the connection between two pairs of lovers who find themselves compromised when they are unknowingly cast under the spell of the Fairy King.

Southside Batesville residents ask for incorporation

Southside Batesville residents ask for incorporation


BATESVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Residents of Southside have filed a petition to incorporate their community as a city to avoid possible annexation into Batesville.

The group Keep Southside Free From Annexation filed a petition of incorporation Monday and signatures were verified Tuesday. A hearing is set for Oct. 24 before County Judge Robert Griffin, who will determine whether the petition is legal.

Last month, the Batesville City Council voted to place on the Nov. 4 ballot a plan to annex Southside into the city. The judge says he plans to rule on the request for incorporation before the election.

Keep Southside Free From Annexation Co-Chairman Brandon Gay says about 2,000 residents live in the proposed incorporation area.

Bella Vista, which was officially formed in 2006, was the last Arkansas city to incorporate.

Emma takes victory lap on Emma Day

Emma takes victory lap on Emma Day

QUITMAN, Ark. (KTHV) – If you entered the Quitman High School gym on Friday, you would have seen a winter wonderland. A carpet of snow blanketed the gym floor, a machine pumped snow into the air, and one very popular song from the movie “Frozen” belted through the speakers as students and faculty gathered together to celebrate Emma Day.

What is Emma Day? It’s a very special celebration of one tough little girl who is battling stage-four osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer. The Panama, Okla., native has been receiving treatments at UAMS right here in Little Rock and happened to meet one of Quitman’s teachers—Theresa Hawks—who was undergoing her own therapy for cervical cancer.

Armyworms march through Arkansas

Armyworms march through Arkansas


LITTLE ROCK, Ark.(KTHV)- If you see a brown lawn in your neighborhood, don't jump to blame the weather or a lazy homeowner. The culprit could be the armyworm.

They look exactly like caterpillars. The insects can turn lawns from green to brown in a matter of days by eating the healthy blades of grass.

At the Pleasant Valley Country Club in Little Rock, golf course superintendent Don Armbrust keeps a close eye on the course's grass.

"Noticed a discoloration or what appeared to be drought-stress within the turf grass area."

A strange occurrence considering the amount of rain the state received during the month of July. At the beginning of August, Armbrust discovered fall armyworms eating away at the grass.

"With the cool, wet spring that we had it was definitely something we had to look out for and we ended up having to treat almost all the rough areas around the golf course."
