    Three people in three different advocacy groups on Arkansas' expanded Medicaid program sued the Trump administration this week seeking to block a newly implemented rule in the state.
    They say the new rule will drop coverage for them and thousands of others if they don't work 80 hours a month - and the lawsuit accuses the administration of violating federal law and the U.S. Constitution.

    And Bowie County has put a Maud man behind bars for multiple burglary and evading-arrest charges.
    Steven Trinidad Montoya Jr is facing charges of home burglary, three counts of burglary of a vehicle and evading arrest. His bonds are set at $25,000 for burglary of a habitation, $10,000 for each charge of burglary of a vehicle and $5,000 for evading arrest.
