A traveling exhibit on display in the Arkansas Union at the U of A draws attention to the national opioid crisis. A collection of 22,000 white pills engraved with the face of each American who died in 2015 from an opioid overdose are at the center of Prescribed to Death: A Memorial to the Victims of the Opioid Crisis. We learn more about the exhibit and about the opioid crisis in Arkansas. The exhibit will be on display through Oct. 9.

A $2.2 million upgrade project is complete at the Springdale Municipal Airport. Upgrades include a resurfaced runway and installation of LED lighting. The project was paid for through grants from the Federal Aviation Administration and from the Arkansas Department of Aeronautics.

We get an update on Fayetteville's new bike-share system, which has had more than 5,000 rides since launching in mid-September. We also hear about some of the issues that have arisen since the system's launch, and get tips on how to be a more conscientious bike-share user.

Leigh Wood, KUAF's membership director, lets us know how the Fall fundraising Month of September ended for 91.3. She also reminds us why the station still conducts on-air fundraisers multiple times a year and explains why those live fundraisers are shorter than they once were.

This weekend offers a wide variety of live music opportunities throughout the KUAF listening area.
