Protect your taps from the extreme freeze

Protect your taps from the extreme freeze

LITTLE ROCK — With temperatures in the forecast to dip near single-digit, residents especially should take precaution tonight against waking up to the inconvenience and hazard of frozen water pipes in their homes.

Central Arkansas Water recommends that customers leave a thin stream of water running continuously from cold-water taps in their homes tonight to protect household plumbing from freezing.  The small but steady flow of moving water is less likely to freeze and serves to protect the water pipes.

Customers may obtain a list of freeze precaution tips at http://www.carkw.com/bill_inserts.asp.

A customer who needs emergency assistance with shutting off water service because of burst or leaking plumbing should call CAW at (501) 377.1239.  Utility personnel are available 24 hours a day to respond to emergencies.

Recipe for Revival

Recipe for Revival

The Ozarks region is dotted with communities whose downtown districts have suffered setbacks and decline in recent decades. The pre-eminence of “big box” retailers and supercenters, the rise of e-commerce, and the enormous demographic shift to weekend and evening shopping have forced downtowns to employ creative strategies to lure shoppers back.

Main Street Batesville, faced with just such a challenge, has embraced a familiar strategy to revive downtown. The 2nd Friday Downtown Wander and Wonder Walk, launched on August 8, is a monthly downtown festival with extended shopping hours, free live music, free films, special events, fun activities, refreshments, and lots of local color.

Information, including a complete schedule and list of participating merchants, is available at Main Street Batesville, downtownbatesville@sbcglobal.net or 870-793-4632.
