An Arkansas lawmaker has filed a bill that would allow school districts to display Christmas imagery and defend a teacher's use of happy Hanukkah and other holiday greetings in class. The proposal would allow the district to showcase a menorah or Christmas tree as long as the display includes a secular scene or symbol or an image from another religion. It also bars schools from encouraging the practice of a particular religion through a display. The bill states that people at school can say merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah and happy holidays. Republican Justin Harris of West Fork said he wants to protect teachers who want to celebrate Christmas or other holidays. An attorney with the Freedom From Religion Foundation said people are already able to use the greetings at school.

A feud between a woman and her former son-in-law lead to an arrest Friday afternoon. The Drew County Sheriff's Office arrested Mary Maloney, 70, of Monticello for "Solicitation of Murder". According to DCSO, Maloney approached one of her neighbors and said she wanted to have "two people disappear". Investigators said the neighbor alleged Maloney they said she wanted the two people dead. One of the intended victims, police said, was Maloney's former son-in-law, Jim Hall. "Well at first I laughed, surely she's not that crazy," Hall told reporter Leah Uko. "I looked at him, I said, 'you gotta be kidding. Who wants me killed?'" Hall said he had went through feuds over child custody with his ex-wife, Maloney's daughter. He admitted he did not like his mother-in-law, but was shocked at the allegations. Following an interview with Maloney, DCSO arrested her on a $10,000 warrant for the charge of Solicitation of Murder. She posted bond the same night. "It's chump change," Hall said he didn't feel safe knowing a person accused of wanting him dead was roaming the same city in which he lived in. "I feel unsafe right now because she's free." DCSO investigators said they know who the other intended victim was, but wanted to notify this person first before releasing a name. The investigation is currently ongoing at this time and when it is completed, DCSO said information would be sent to prosecutor, Thomas Deen, for official charges.
The Calhoun County Coroner says a man shot and killed his ex-wife, then turned the gun on himself.

Neighbors alerted sheriff's deputies early Saturday afternoon after they noticed blood near Queen's front door. Their bodies have now been sent to the state crime lab. The two had been divorced about six months.

Former Arkansas Razorback Tight End and NFL Football Patriot DJ Williams shares his personal story of domestic violence. D.J. Williams doesn't remember how old he was the first time he saw his father hit his mother. He remembers the guns. He remembers wondering if the beatings were ever going to stop. He remembers that unforgettable look in his father's eyes, the look of someone struggling with depression and hooked on crack cocaine. He remembers being a little boy thrust into a world of spousal abuse that turned his Carrollton, Texas, home into a hellish prison. But most of all, he remembers being scared. Scared for himself. Scared for his two older sisters. Scared that his mother might not survive the next beating.
