White County native, classical composer and honky tonk hero Bonnie Montgomery would have performed at Carnegie Hall this year with opera star Zachary James for “Call Out,” a concert featuring works by a lineup of women composers. That didn’t happen, but Montgomery’s “Song Beyond Words” reached ears anyway with a Out visual and audio album, with Kevin Skrla on steel guitar and James singing alongside soprano Megan Nielson on Montgomery piece. Oh, and don’t miss Montgomery’s set on this year’s Holiday Hangout, still up at the Arkansas Times YouTube channel.
Born in 1972, Bay Area Rapid Transit, aka BART, shuttles nearly 500,000 people across 107 miles of track each day.

My partner and I approach a sedan that was pulled over with hazard lights on, about 50 yards ahead of where we originally were parked, and saw a young female hysterically crying in the front seat and that when we noticed there were tennis shoes and clothing fragments in the travel lanes, covered in blood. The female said that she was driving back to college, and a man stepped out in front of her on the highway and she hit him, causing him to go over her car and down on to the pavement where more cars struck him. Worst part was his feet were still in his shoes, detached from his body where she originally struck him.
