*SAVE THE BUFFALO RIVER: Want a little bipartisanship? Here's some. Sept. 12, former U.S. Rep. Vic Snyder and his wife the Rev. Betsy Singleton, are holding a fund-raiser at their home to raise money for the effort  
to oppose the hog farm on a major tributary of the Buffalo River. Special guests include former Democratic U.S. Sen. Dale Bumpers and his wife Betty and former Republican U.S. Rep. Ed Bethune and his wife Lana. Co-hosts include a number of familiar legal, philanthropic and conservationist  names and groups.

* MORE OUTDOOR NEWS: DEER POACHERS BUSTED: The state Game and Fish Commission says 13 people from rural Sevier County and rural McCurtain County, Okla., have been issued 32 game violation citations and 25 warnings for a deer poaching operATION. A 14-month investigation concluded the group took 45 deer over bag limits. Arkansas and Oklahoma officers worked along with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Bond amounts on the violation total almost $24,000.
