Changes to School Immunization Requirements Effective 2014-15 School Year

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (ADH) – Children who will be 11 years of age or older on or before September 1 of each school year will be required to receive a Tdap shot in order to attend public or private school in Arkansas. This new requirement is anticipated to be effective September 1, 2014. Previously a Tdap shot was required for students entering Grade 7. Only one Tdap is required, so children who have already received the shot will not need another. Students who will be 11 years old on or before September 1 will have until October 1 to meet this new shot requirement.

2 lawsuits challenge judicial candidates in Conway


CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - Two lawsuits have been filed challenging the eligibility of two people running for separate judgeships in Faulkner County.

The lawsuits allege that candidate Angela Byrd and current Circuit Judge H.G. Foster are ineligible for the ballot because both had their law licenses temporarily suspended for not paying annual state-bar fees.

According to the lawsuit, Foster's law license has been suspended four times since 2009 for nonpayment of dues. Foster tells the Log Cabin Democrat that he believed his dues were paid last year but "ill-advisedly did not follow up on it."

The lawsuit challenging Byrd says her law license was suspended for one day this year when she paid her dues a day late. Byrd didn't return a calling seeking comment Wednesday.

Following the reports of the ruling that saved incumbent Judge Tim Fox’s seat against Bailey, it was revealed the simple error on the part of a judicial candidate — the failure to timely pay yearly dues to keep a law license — could cost him or her an election.
