Lyon students give back to community

Lyon students give back to community

Normally on a weekday, Lyon College students can be found in classrooms, but on Service Day it is their time to give back to the community. 

Freshman Chrissy Willen of Heber Springs washed out cages at the Humane Society of Independence County. Junior Jon-Michael Poff pulled weeds from a flowerbed at a local school. Freshman Nathan Childers shoveled gravel at a church. Sophomore Cody Besett cleaned windows at the Batesville Housing Authority. 

Each year, the college releases students from their classes and faculty and staff from their regular work duties on Service Day to visit sites throughout local towns. The college representatives do everything from reading to elementary school children to washing church windows to visiting nursing home residents and bagging food for low-income families.

'Sound Off' Episode 4: Stonewall Democrats

'Sound Off' Episode 4: Stonewall Democrats

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (RSM) -- Our third interview is with Eric McDaniel of the Stonewall Democrats, a gay activist political organization that made headlines recently when addressed by Gov. Beebe earlier this year. CLICK HERE to listen.

Stonewall was caught up in controversy when leaders in the organization refused to publicly criticize the governor for making what some viewed as unfavorable remarks regarding gay rights in Arkansas. McDaniel has taken heat for this decision, and addresses that here in this interview. What do you think? Should the Stonewall Democrats have rebuked Gov. Beebe's comments, or did they do the right thing?
