If you wonder why the E-FORUM went dark for a week or more, it was because I finally got to squeeze in a vacation between the last City Council meeting and ramp up of campaign forums.
The week was dominated by the Fayetteville Roots Festival, a growing celebration of music and food in the heart of the Ozarks.
For a sampling of some of the performances, see below:

Our place in Fayetteville was placed on the National Register this year, and we attached plaque to commemorate it. See http://www.arkansaspreservation.com/National-Register-Listings/PDF/WA1636_nr.pdf and https://isaactthompson.myportfolio.com/documentation-of-deepwood
