Photo request[edit]

Perhaps a key photo to include in this article might be one of the intersection of Highways 49 & 61. — ArkansasTraveler (talk) 16:37, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

The intersection of Highways 49 & 61 is not accurate[edit]

This description is highly misleading. The roads designated as the 49 & 61 are now part of the modern interstate whereas the crossroads in question now stands between the redesignated S State and N State Streets and the state highway 322. The crossroads is here [1] as the memorial can be seen clearly here on streetview [2]. This might have once been the H61 and and H49 but they are not now. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:31, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

"Crime" subsection[edit]

I've at least temporarily removed the Crime subsection. The wording is expressing opinion and makes some rather strong charges and assumptions with no supporting ref at all. If it is added back then really needs to be Wikified. Sector001 (talk) 07:55, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

Removal of cleanup message[edit]

This article contained a cleanup message placed at the top of the article stating that:

This article may contain wording that promotes the subject in a subjective manner without imparting real information. Please remove or replace such wording and instead of making proclamations about a subject's importance, use facts and attribution to demonstrate that importance. (October 2009)

The user who added the cleanup message did not include a comment about it here in the Talk section.

I've looked over the article and made some additions, particularly to the History section. The article seems balanced and factual, and does not appear to promote the city in a subjective way.

I will remove the cleanup message, and would appreciate discussion.
