The roller coaster temperatures continues again this week, with highs returning to above normal levels.  There is a chance of showers this evening. The good news is that spring like weather is returning just in time for your weekend.

I have decided to keep out my winter clothes until June, just to be safe. Lower humidity and plenty of sunshine provide the ingredients for a perfect weekend. I do, however, advise keeping a few long sleeves shirts and a jacket available for a few more weeks.
 
Here is a four day look at your weather for this week:

FP Exclusive: Riverfest Growing Stronger Although Bands Are More Difficult To Sign PDF Print E-mail
Written by The Free Press Team   

It was coordinated with the help of more than 200 volunteers, a board of directors and an entertainment staff like no other. If 34 years of experience is any indication, this year’s Riverfest is sure to be one of the best yet.

A quick look at the entertainment lineup on the Riverfest Miller Lite Amphitheatre Stage, located in Riverfront Park at the Riverfest Amphitheatre, is a good indicator of that. “We have got Poison. Bret Michaels has been huge the last couple of years. He is coming in with four buses,” Jennifer McConser, Riverfest Media Committee Member told the Arkansas Free Press. “We are an official part of their Spring 2011 tour.”

A special and appreciated friendship PDF Print E-mail
Written by Donald Asher   
Did you ever have people come into your life unexpectedly and add a dimension that brings joy and laughter?

Let me tell you our experience.

Three years ago I was scheduled to have surgery for a total knee replacement. Now I have had numerous orthopedic surgeries and one thing I learned is that post-op physical therapy is nearly as important as the surgery itself.

Taking no chances, I decided to interview physical therapists. I went from one to another talking about rehab after surgery.

I went into Accelerated Rehab in Valparaiso, Indiana. I was greeted by a woman with an accent. I told Renata of my upcoming surgery.

Keeping Pants UP Will Help Grades Lawmakers Say PDF Print E-mail
Written by The Free Press Team   

                      
The House of Representatives have passed a bill, introduced by Rep. Tracey Steele of North Little Rock, requiring schoolboys to keep their pants off the ground. The bill, which passed in a 73-19 vote, calls for school districts to ban revealing clothing, baggy pants worn low, and undergarments that show above the pants. This is supposed to help discourage fighting and improve academic performance according to various reports.

“After listening to the people in my district and around the state, I decided the time had come to do something about it. We wanted some consistency and uniformity around the state. We have come to the conclusion that to get a young person to pull up their grades, you have to get them to pull up their pants,“ Representative Steele told the Free Press.
