  • BEEN THERE? Museum in Springdale voted one of state's top 10 destinations.

The Arkansas parks and tourism folks, as a 175th state birthday gimmick, polled people on the top 10 places in Arkansas to visit. The list came out today. Might I suggest a faint indication of ballot-box fever? The Shiloh Museum of Ozark History in Springdale over the Clinton Presidential Library? Over Razorback Stadium? The Little Rock Zoo? Not that the Shiloh Museum isn't a fine place, mind you.

Anyway, here they are, in alphabetical order:

Arkansas Arts Center, Little Rock
Bathhouse Row, Hot Springs
Eureka Springs Downtown Historic District
Garvan Woodland Gardens, Hot Springs
MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History, Little Rock
Ozark Folk Center State Park, Mountain View
Ozark Medieval Fortress, Lead Hill
Petit Jean State Park, Morrilton
Shiloh Museum of Ozark History, Springdale
Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge, Eureka Springs

    The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality has denied a new permit for the C&H Hog Farms' concentrated animal feeding operation near Mount Judea (Newton County). This is a big and somewhat surprising victory for critics who have viewed C&H's large-scale pig farm and the pig waste it generates as an existential threat to the Buffalo National River.
