  • ON THE ROAD: A rest stop near journey's end.

The line is open. While waiting for Riverfest fireworks, some reading recommended by Mara Leveritt — an account of a bike ride from Little Rock to South Carolina this month  by Rev. Thompson Murray of Quapaw United Methodist Church. It was a journey of more than physical dimensions. In the news: A fireworks-sparked fire in Maumelle.

* DISPLACED PERSONS: Channel 11 says 15 people have  been displaced from a Maumelle apartment building damaged by a fireworks-caused fire.
