  • JERRY'S NEW BOAT:
Dallas Cowboy owner Jerry Jones, who has humble roots in Rose City, has joined the pinnacle of the super wealthy, with purchase of a $250 million yacht. I don't think it's designed for Arkansas River cruising, but it'd be a sight tied up on the North Little Rock riverbank near his Arkansas boyhood stomping grounds.

Oceanco, a Dutch company, built the 357-foot yacht, which has two helipads. Yahoo news notes that the yacht cost more than Jones paid for the Cowboys in 1989. It's named the Bravo Eugenia, after his wife, Gene, and includes a pool, sauna and so on. More details from the Washington Post.
