WR Council discusses West NileThe Walnut Ridge City Council held a special meeting Friday night to discuss a plan of action to combat mosquitoes that could bring the West Nile Virus into the city. College City Recorder/Treasurer Joy Ring and Dale Leatherman, vice president for business affairs at Williams Baptist College, also attended the meeting. As of Friday, no cases in this area have been reported to the Arkansas State Health Department, according to Mayor Don House. However, the virus has been reported in seven Arkansas counties and has caused two deaths in Western Arkansas.
In a compromise move, the Northeast Arkansas Regional Intermodal Facilities Authority (NEARIFA) passed a motion at its regular monthly meeting this past week endorsing the completion of Hwy. 67 North from Walnut Ridge to the Missouri state line, but stopped short of endorsing a route.
