On today's show, we get a preview of a lecture taking palce this week that will highlight research into a new species of dinosaur discovered in Arkansas. Plus, we hear how the city of Rogers will address growth and parking, and our Militant Grammarian returns to give us a refresher course on proper comma usage.

As the Arkansas General Assembly gets underway for this year's regular session, we look back at some of the scandals involving state legislators that came to light in 2018. Roby Brock, with our content partner Talk Business and Politics, speaks with political writer John Brummett about the latest developments and what might be next.

Last night, consultants revealed recommendations for the downtown Rogers parking plan. Residents can provide feedback via an online survey. Officials expect a final report next month.

In 2011, a group of researchers found dinosaur tracks in an Arkansas gypsum mine. Celina Suarez, an associate professor of geosciences at the University of Arkansas, will give a lecture this week on the findings of research into those trackways, which were the first samples of theropod tracks in Arkansas.
