We are kicking off October in the best way we know possible. And this — to announce our winners of the AY’s Best of 2020 contest that, come pandemic or high water — we were able to secure. James Corden, the affable host of a late night show there on your television, was our host, if you haven’t heard. We are so glad to tell you who won and what retailers, businesses and health care facilities you need to remember when you’re looking for their services.
Wanna know what else is inside? Our Travel Editor, Joe David Rice, takes us to another Arkansas location, and this one is a busy spot on I-40 — the town of Russellville. Not just a city with a college and a great place to get a burger, but a city with railroads and a huge nuclear power facility. The mayor there wants you to stop by and get to know the city better.
And we celebrate a spooky theme as we cover a murder mystery in a haunted jail, ten top haunted places and an Arkansas Backstory on UFOs. And if you love all things Halloween, you’ll love one of the charcuterie boards we featured. It would be perfect for your Halloween gathering. We loved photographing this because of the leftovers we had!
October has always been a month where we did two things: One is recognize the women who make up our annual Intriguing Women list, and the other has been recognizing women who have fought breast cancer. In this issue, we do both.
