Dr. Harry P. Ward, chancellor emeritus of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, died at home last night. He was 74. Ruebel Funeral Home will be handling arrangements.
There is no service, but a visitation with family will be from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday at Pleasant Valley Country Club.

Ward was credited during his 21 years of leadership from 1979-2000 with reshaping UAMS from a sometimes-struggling charity hospital to a colossus of health care and research.

He was also simply a good guy. His full obituary is here.

    Gov. Asa Hutchinson apparently felt the burn from KARK's exclusive Tuesday night on his plans to cut state support of War Memorial Stadium in half beginning July 1, 2018. He has a so-far secret plan to make the stadium self-sustaining. We bet that doesn't include state support.
