Yell County Sheriff Bill Gilkey
has announced the arrest of Rebecca Ann Vinson, 77, of Dardanelle on suspicion of dealing methamphetamines.

The arrest followed a search of her residence. Chief Deputy John Foster said deputies found 26 grams of meth, 19 grams of prescription narcotics, digital scales, glass smoking devices, $3,600 in cash and baggies believed used to package drugs. Foster said authorities believe she'd been distributing drugs within 1,000 feet of a city park. She's been released on a $50,000 bond pending court proceedings on several anticipated charges related to possession and distribution of drugs.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
