A Memoir in Verse

Gerry Sloan's new collection of poems, Crossings, considers the past and present.

On today’s show, as the younger workforce numbers continue to grow in northwest Arkansas, young professionals are reaching out to each other. Plus, an Arkansas-based study on fracking. And from Austin, Texas...the band Knife in the Water plays in the Firmin-Garner Performance Studio.

A pair of Hendrix College research biologists have assessed the ecological cost of damage to natural habitat from oil and gas fracking on major plays across the U.S., as well as in Arkansas. The research is published in the June issue of Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment.

People between the ages of 20 and 34 make up the largest percentage of residents in Washington County, northwest Arkansas as a whole, and the entire state. Government numbers show 27 percent of Arkansas residents are millennials, or people born between 1981 and 2000. That’s a slightly larger percentage of Natural State residents than baby boomers, who make up roughly 24 percent of the population. Those numbers are for 2015 and most, if not all, estimates predict the number of millennial residents has only increased and will continue to increase in northwest Arkansas.

It's hot outside, so Becca Martin Brown of the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette gives us some weekend options of things to do away from the scorching heat.
