The Open Mouth Reading Series is in its third year of bringing community-based poetry to Northwest Arkansas. This month's poetry festival runs from Oct.29 - Nov. 2 and will feature a special Halloween showcase on the spookiest night of the year. The event, at Stage Eighteen in Fayetteville, will include a poetry slam, costume contest--with categories ranging from best zombie poet to emo monster--and lots of candy. 

The Regional National Cemetery Improvement Corp (RNCIC) was started in 1984 when the Fayetteville National Cemetery began running out of space for veterans, who have been buried there since the end of the Civil War.

Merle Williams, Publicity Director for the RNCIC, talks to Pete Hartman about the organization's 9th annual 5K run on Nov. 4. All proceeds from the race support land expansion for the cemetery.
