* ASSAULT CHARGE: Details from KTHV on the arrest of Michael McCray,.36, on a charge of sexual assault and rape. he was arrested at the Jacksonville Lighthouse College Prep charter school, where he worked, but the charges stem from allegations related to his former employment at the private Anthony School in Little Rock.

A Little Rock police report said McCray was a teacher and that he was accused of having sex with a 15-year-old several times.

* BACK TO SCHOOLS: Arkansas Business has coverage of a talk to Rotary today by Baker Kurrus, the Little Rock school superintendent.
