Group: Unlikely to Get Involved in Arkansas AG Race

LITTLE ROCK - A conservative group that criticized Leslie Rutledge during her successful bid for Arkansas attorney general two years ago says it doesn't expect to get involved in her 2018 re-election campaign, and is calling the Republican as a strong advocate for limited government.

The chief counsel and policy director for the Judicial Crisis Network praised Rutledge Tuesday, a day after Rutledge announced she was seeking re-election in two years. Carrie Severino told The Associated Press in an email she didn't expect the group will need to be involved in Rutledge's re-election campaign.

The JCN criticized Rutledge during the Republican primary and runoff two years ago in a series of television ads and mailers. No Republicans or Democrats have announced a bid to challenge Rutledge.

Arkansas coaches learn heads up football

Arkansas coaches learn heads up football

CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) -- Friday night football heroes are forged in the summer heat. In recent years, protecting young football players from that heat has been the top safety concern.

But now, there's a new worry about concussions. And that's why coaches from across the state gathered on Friday in Conway.

Even the NFL is threatened by concussions and head injuries. At that level, it's about liability and the quality of life after the game.

For Arkansas high school football coaches, it’s about convincing parents that the game is safe and kids that they can have fun on the field.

“The parents are really concerned about their kids, but if you can show them that you're going to take care of their kids, I have seen an increase in kids that usually don't play are gravitating back into our program.”

Arkansas Tech faculty member chosen for NASA fellowship

Arkansas Tech faculty member chosen for NASA fellowship

RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. (April 20, 2016)--Dr. Daniel Bullock, associate professor of electrical engineering at Arkansas Tech University, has been selected as a faculty fellow in the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center Faculty Fellowship program for summer 2016.

During the 10-week fellowship, Bullock will work with NASA engineers to develop a satellite that will eventually rendezvous with a near-Earth asteroid. His team will attempt to contribute to a greater knowledge of the asteroids as part of NASA's long-term goal of sending a manned mission to explore the objects.

"I hope that I can bring back some portion of the project to use for the electrical engineering senior design capstone course," said Bullock. "I also want to learn more about the NASA design process and be able to share that with our engineering students."
