* DRUG MONEY: The attorney general's office announced today another class action pharmaceutical lawsuit in which Arkansas will share the proceeds. It will get $489,399 in a $95 million settlement with Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals over allegations that it marketed drugs for non-approved uses in a way that cost Medicaid programs. The drugs were Atrovent, Combivent, Micardis and Aggrenox. The suit alleged that kickbacks were paid as inducments to prescribe the drugs.
* ELECTION INTEGRITY: The U.S. attorneys in Arkansas have announced teams to monitor ballot access and election integrity this season.
* DOG DEATHS: Channel 7 is reporting 41 dogs have died in a mobile home fire in Greenbriar (among 95 dogs).
