Jul 1, 2016

The American Legion post in Batesville held its first Pride Day celebration this week.  Social media buzz and a newspaper preview didn't turn out attendance, but as Arkansas Public Media's Bobby Ampezzan reports, the long-term plan is to swing public perception bit by bit.  Click on the Listen button to hear the story.

Arkansas Sheriff's Youth Ranches are making a difference in the state.  With their flagship campus in Batesville, and two other campuses in the state, the ranches can house up to 100 abused or neglected children.  KASU's Johnathan Reaves files this report.

State funds are headed to Batesville for a study on possible development of Polk Bayou.  KASU's Johnathan Reaves discusses the study with Crystal Johnson, President and CEO of the Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce.
