Arkansas Week July 19, 2019 (Labor and Management) We depend on it for tens of thousands of jobs year-round. (Impact 6 Billion) We depend on it for hundreds of millions of dollars in wages and tax revenue. (The Natural State) We depend on it to not merely maintain but improve our state's image. (Visit, Linger, Spend!) It's tourism. Summer vacations, autumn among the turning leaves, hunting and fishing and conventions year-round. Where stands the industry today, and possibly tomorrow. https://video1.aetn.org/vod/media/arwk/arwk003729.mp3 Fri, 19 Jul 2019 15:37:50 -0500 Arkansas Week July 12, 2019 A political look at Arkansas' transformation from a blue to red state https://video1.aetn.org/vod/media/arwk/arwk003728.mp3 Fri, 12 Jul 2019 14:54:22 -0500 Arkansas Week July 5, 2019 (An Ailing Arkansas) In our state more than most others, we make ourselves sick. We either don't take care of ourselves or don't consult those who would keep us healthy. (Mortality and Morbidity) So our rates of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, stroke and other diseases is far greater than need be. (Dollars for Diseases) The cost of preventable ailments costs the Arkansas economy, to include the Arkansas taxpayer, hundreds of millions of dollars each year. (Pathway to Health?) Are there solutions and are we pursuing them as we should? It's our focus on a special edition of Arkansas Week. https://video1.aetn.org/vod/media/arwk/arwk003727.mp3 Fri, 05 Jul 2019 10:44:42 -0500 Arkansas Week June 28, 2019 (Country to Town) Like it or not, for better or worse, more and more Arkansans are leaving the land for asphalt. (Options and Alternatives) Whether for economic advantage or simply a different lifestyle, the impact is already significant and it's almost certain to deepen. (Shifting Landscape) For those who choose to remain in place? What sort of place will be theirs? (Perils and Promise) The obstacles and the opportunities of rural Arkansas. https://video1.aetn.org/vod/media/arwk/arwk003726.mp3 Wed, 26 Jun 2019 13:40:22 -0500 Arkansas Week June 21, 2019 (Medicaid Update) Health coverage and the work requirement, did or did it not do, what the state hoped it would do? (Slicing and Hooking) In Arkansas's capitol city, a new mayor and his council confront a budget with little bend. (Pope and Russellville) First casinos, now cannabis, and no consensus. Can there be peace in the valley? (Repairing a River) And also, the locks and dams of the Arkansas River, an economic engine now in serious need of a tuneup. https://video1.aetn.org/vod/media/arwk/arwk003725.mp3 Fri, 21 Jun 2019 15:56:26 -0500
