On today's program, we learn how a building in Springdale is being transformed into transitional housing and into a home for various agencies providing services to former prison inmates. Also, we hear highlights from Senator Tom Cotton's town hall that was held in Springdale last night.
Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, faced more than 2,000 people at his town hall Wednesday evening in Springdale. Many of those in attendance expressed anger and frustration about issues ranging from the impending repeal of the Affordable Care Act to the proposed border wall with Mexico.
