Ozarks at Large for Friday, May 18, 2018

May 18, 2018

On today’s show, the U.S. Supreme Court is opening the door for legalized sports betting beyond Vegas, but how will Arkansas respond? Plus we hear about development of a new park in Siloam Springs. And Iowa-based songwriter Angela Meyer joins us in the studio to talk about her brand of country music.

The Week: Tyson, Elections, War Memorial

May 18, 2018

Michael Tilley, with Talk Business and Politics, is back this week to help us review news. He discusses a week of financial news for Tyson Foods, Tuesday's upcoming primary election and the continuation of football at War Memorial Stadium.

This week, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled unconstitutional a federal law that barred states from legalizing sports betting. Rep. Greg Leding, D-Fayetteville, and Rep. Charlie Collins, R-Fayetteville, discuss what this could mean for Arkansas where sports betting is currently prohibited by state law.

Marcus Sakey writes novels that tweak our real world just a bit. His books consider cops, criminals, a bit of fantasty and...sometimes...the world beyond death. He'll be a speaker at Sunday's Books in Bloom in Eureka Springs from noon to 5 p.m. at the 1886 Crescent Hotel and Spa.
