Donald Trump apologized in a video late Friday over derogatory comments he made about women while working alongside Billy Bush in 2005. In the apology video Trump lamented in part, “I said it, I was wrong and I apologize.”
Recorded on a “hot mic,” the comments have sparked a firestorm of activity on the internet. “I’ve never said I’m a perfect person, nor pretended to be someone that I’m not,” Trump reminded.
“I’ve said and done things I regret, and the words released today on this more than a decade old video are one of them,” Trump said in the video statement. “Anyone who knows me knows these words don’t reflect who I am. I said it, I was wrong and I apologize,” he said. Continue reading
Arkansas Game and Fish Commission confirmed that a man eating piranha was caught in Arkansas’ Lake Bentonville last week.
Piranha are a scary fish with sharp fang-like teeth and rank among several species of exotic animals that are unlawful to import or transport.
According to AGFC Assistant Chief of Communications, Keith Stephens, the fish was caught on Friday. Stephens said people have caught piranhas in Arkansas before, but they don’t last long. “We get a few pacus and piranhas caught from time to time. They get to big from someone’s aquarium and they release them. They cannot survive our low winter water temperatures so no populations have ever been established,” Stephens said. h/t katv

A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a suspect in the kidnapping of Realtor, Beverly Carter, a Little Rock, Arkansas, who failed to return home after showing a vacant, bank-owned home.
Beverly Carter, a Little Rock, Arkansas, real estate agent, failed to return home after showing a vacant, bank-owned home to an unknown person.
Carter, 49, was set to show the home in a small town on the eastern outskirts of Little Rock and three days later, she is still missing.
After not hearing from her for three hours, her husband of 35 years rushed over to the house later that evening and found the door to the house open, his wife’s locked car in the driveway and no sign of Carter.
On Saturday morning, a group of approximately 250 volunteers and authorities gathered to scour the area around the home by foot and ATV for clues that could help find the missing agent. source
Adding to the ominous feeling surrounding the disappearance, Carter’s husband said he received three suspicious text messages from his wife’s phone early Friday morning around 1 a.m.
One read, “Oh, I’m out drinking with some friends,” he told THV11.com. This made him even more worried, because his wife is not a drinker, he said.
Anyone with information regarding Carter’s whereabouts are being asked to contact the sheriff’s office at (501) 340-6600.
