Singer-songwriter Pierce Pettis is performing two concerts Saturday night in Jonesboro. This "songwriter's songwriter" has recorded 10 albums of songs that include "You Move Me" which was recorded by Garth Brooks. Pettis will appear in concert Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at TheArts@311 on South Church in Jonesboro, just south of the intersection of Huntington and Church. He will present a second set of songs at 9:00 pm with seating preference given to those who weren't able to get seats for the earlier set.
City employees are in a new city hall, located at an old bank building at 300 South Church Street in Jonesboro. The new location is described as being a "one-stop" shop for Jonesboro citizens. In November, the city's engineering, planning, and inspection will also come to the new city hall. KASU's Johnathan Reaves visited the new building and has this report.
After 16 tornadoes pounded parts of Texas, killing six and injuring more, meteorologists are reminding the public about how fast tornadoes can spawn out of thunderstorms. KASU's Johnathan Reaves talks with Cory Chaskelson with the National Weather Service in Memphis about tornadoes.
