Arkansas Mu­seum of Nat­u­ral Re­sources an­nounces Oc­to­ber events

SMACKOVER — Two events will be fea­tured this month at the Arkansas Mu­seum of Nat­u­ral Re­sources in Smackover, in­clud­ing, Spooky Squishy Cir­cuits Tinker Time at 1 p.m. Satur­day and the Fall Fest Satur­day from 4 un­til 7 p.m. Oct. 21, ac­cord­ing to Pam Beasley, mu­seum su­per­in­ten­dent.

“Do you as­pire to be a Dr. Franken­stein? Or maybe it’s a pul­sat­ing blob with multi col­ored lights! You can do it all here. Make a Hal­loween in­spired squishy cir­cuit. Maybe a beat­ing heart is your de­sire for a scary Hal­loween cre­ation. If you’re not into scary, maybe a lighted pump­kin or leaf is for you,” Beasley said.

“The only lim­i­ta­tion is your imag­i­na­tion. What is a squishy cir­cuit you ask? Well it’s us­ing con­duc­tive dough, a bat­tery and LEDs (Light Emit­ting Diodes), buzzers or mo­tors. It also in­vites par­tic­i­pants to use the ma­te­rial as a purely func­tional ‘wire’ to con­duct the elec­tric­ity. But when those two com­bine, peo­ple be­gin to op­er­ate in the sweet spot be­tween art, science and tech­nol­ogy,” she said. “This event is free, but we would ap­pre­ci­ate a call so that we have plenty of sup­plies of ev­ery­one,” Beasley said.

“Dur­ing the 1920s when south Arkansas was hustling and bustling with the ac­tiv­i­ties of oil boom, fes­ti­vals and county fairs were a huge sen­sa­tion. Com­mu­nity par­ties and pa­rades were planned. Awe, the good ole days! Fes­ti­val go­ers to the Arkansas Mu­seum of Nat­u­ral Re­sources will play some of the same games as were played dur­ing the by-gone era and a few that weren’t in­tro­duced un­til much later.

“There will be car­ni­val games with prizes and sev­eral ac­tiv­i­ties with take home ma­te­ri­als. Par­tic­i­pants can make a

scare­crow, be it scary or funny. Maybe a bat is more to your lik­ing; make it how­ever you de­sire and what­ever color – the choices are end­less. The en­tire fam­ily will en­joy hear­ing your for­tunes from a world fa­mous seer of the fu­ture,” Beasley said.

There will not be a cos­tume con­test, but chil­dren of all ages are en­cour­aged to wear a cos­tume; after all you want to get your money’s worth out of it! Ad­mis­sion is $5 for chil­dren un­der 12, adults are $3. Young­sters un­der age 2 are free.

Walt Wilkins and Monty Rus­sell to per­form at Grif­fin Restau­rant

Walt Wilkins and Monty Rus­sell are sched­uled to per­form from 9 un­til 11:30 p.m. Thurs­day at the Grif­fin Restau­rant in the Mur­phy Arts District in El Do­rado.

Each Thurs­day night, the Grif­fin Restau­rant will play host to live lo­cal and re­gional tal­ent on the cabaret stage.

San An­to­nio-born Walt Wilkins has been called a ge­nius, more than once, and a writer the cal­iber of John Stein­beck and his voice as com­fort­able as a pair of old blue jeans, and he is, and has, all of that. His craft­ing of story-songs, hard-edged vo­cals to sing them and a plain­tive gui­tar have made him a fix­ture of the Texas mu­sic scene (and Nashville be­fore that). He’s put his mag­i­cal touch on record­ings by new and veteran artists, too many to count, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease from MAD.

Monty Rus­sell is a singer, song­writer, Amer­i­cana ra­dio per­son­al­ity, and con­cert pro­moter based in Northern Louisiana. He is cur­rently tour­ing to pro­mote his latest record­ing “The Fool Monty Rus­sell,” pro­duced by Texas mu­sic icon Walt Wilkins and Goose Creek Sym­phony fid­dler Tim Lorsch, which re­ceived ex­ten­sive ra­dio play on Texas and Louisiana ra­dio.

For ticket in­for­ma­tion, call 870-863-4547 or visit www.el­do­mad.com.
