Ahead on this edition of Ozarks, the names of some publications like Time or Southern Living give readers a literal idea of what's printed on their pages, but what about 3W or Due South? We take a look at the thought behind the titles of some of the magazines published in our region. Plus, we talk with Roby Brock about some of the repercussions of Tuesday's primary runoff elections.

A study released yesterday by Oxfam International suggests that many workers in Arkansas would benefit from a raise in the federal minimum wage. A matching grant from the Walton Family Foundation will soon result in a mountain bike trail in Springdale, and Fayetteville joins the Arkansas Downtown Network.

Roby Brock from Talk Business and Politics assesses the state's political landscape in the aftermath of the primary runoff election.

Ahead on this edition of Ozarks, raising the minimum wage in Arkansas. Plus, we have a report on regional accents.

Yesterday's runoff elections settled the GOP side of the ticket for this year's election for Arkansas Attorney General, but yesterday's runoffs may also have implications for funding the state's Private Option next year. Meanwhile, state legislators this week debated whether public schools should be allowed to tie onto the fiber optic network used by the state's higher education institutions, and Fort Smith Public Schools' summer meals program for youths gets underway.  

 

This month's Three Things feature tells us three things we should all know about CPR.
