• Wal-Mart Stores Inc. wants to cut off at least one possible supply line for those who make methamphetamine and amphetamine. Wednesday, the nation’s largest retailer announced it would limit purchases of many cold, allergy and diet medications, including Actifed, Benadryl and Dimetapp — over-the-counter drugs that can be used to make methamphetamine and amphetamine. Wal-Mart made the move after meeting with Drug Enforcement Administration representatives at a national meeting of Wal-Mart pharmacy managers in January. The Bentonville retailer announced the changes Wednesday at a Washington, D.C., press conference with the federal agency.

FAYETTEVILLE — At 7-feet-tall, with a granite base that almost doubles its overall height, the statue of J. William Fulbright towers over the Old Main courtyard at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville. Dedicated in 2002, the statue is a familiar sight to campus visitors. People often get their photographs taken with the bronze likeness of the longtime United States senator from Arkansas. On Monday, a group of about 75 university administrators, faculty and staff members, and students gathered in the courtyard to mark the reinstallation of the statue. The event coincided with the anniversary of Fulbright’s birth in 1905; he died in 1995.
