Ahead on Ozarks, a business degree from the University of Arkansas without ever seeing Old Main or setting foot on senior walk: an online degree is now a reality. Plus, we get an update on updating Cane Hill, one of the oldest communities in the region.

The two candidates in this year's Arkansas governor's race recently discussed their views of what the future holds for the state's Private Option. The future of hog farms in the Buffalo River Watershed may be uncertain with a recently proposed ban on confined animal breeding operations near the national river. And the Fort Smith Fire Department may not have to travel as far for training in the future, if the city board of directors approves construction of a training facility in the city.

This fall, the University of Arkansas will offer its first start-to-finish, online bachelor's degree program – a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration.

Shiloh Museum will give us the story of Essie Ward, an artist from Nubbin Hill.

The last days of spring have almost everything for the curious.  From a science fiction reading to a workshop on rails, we have details on some of the events.

Ahead on this edition of Ozarks, Michael Tilley of The City Wire tells us about the week's news including Tyson's bid for Hillshire Brands, and the band Xcluded joins us in the studio as they release their new original album and while they have some time off between the eighth and ninth grades.

The Arkansas gross domestic product grew in 2013, particularly in some unexpected sectors. With one of the architects of the Arkansas Private Option defeated in a primary runoff this week, the future of the Medicaid expansion is in doubt, but Governor Mike Beebe is undeterred. Plus, this weekend marks the 149th anniversary of the end of slavery in the U.S., and the 17th annual NWA Juneteenth Celebration will mark the occasion in Springdale.

Becca Martin Brown from Northwest Arkansas Newspapers explains Devil's Den is celebrating its 25th Bat-o-Rama this weekend.
