Edward M. Brown, son of Mr. and Mrs. M.C. Brown of Der­mott, re­ceived the Bronze Star and the sec­ond and third awards of the Dis­tin­guished Fly­ing Cross. Capt. Lowry’s ci­ta­tion said that he saw a he­li­copter crash near his unit and tak­ing a squad he went to the site and suc­ceeded in help­ing the crew to safety de­spite heavy sniper fire. Capt.

■ The owner of a lo­cal pri­vate ca­reer col­lege stripped of its el­i­gi­bil­ity for fed­eral stu­dent aid pro­grams said Fri­day schools shouldn’t get blamed for some­thing out of their con­trol. “I know that the funds have been abused some, but I think it’s un­fair for the schools to be pe­nal­ized,” said Daniel Bryant, owner of New Tyler Bar­ber Col­lege at North Lit­tle Rock. “We can’t make the stu­dents pay back their loans.”

10 YEARS AGO Au­gust 1, 2007

■ Death row in­mate Ter­rick Ter­rell Nooner is sched­uled to die by lethal in­jec­tion on Sept. 18, ac­cord­ing to a procla­ma­tion is­sued by Gov. Mike Beebe Tues­day, the first ex­e­cu­tion to be sched­uled in his ad­min­is­tra­tion. Nooner, 36, was sen­tenced to death for the March 1993 mur­der of Scot Sto­baugh, a 22-yearold Univer­sity of Arkansas at Lit­tle Rock stu­dent. Nooner fa­tally shot Sto­baugh dur­ing a rob­bery at the Fun­wash, a coin-op­er­ated laun­dry on West Markham Street. Nooner has ex­hausted his state and fed­eral ap­peals and didn’t have a for­mal stay of ex­e­cu­tion is­sued by a judge, al­though his fed­eral civil-rights suit chal­leng­ing the le­gal­ity of lethal in­jec­tion still is pend­ing be­fore the 8th U.S. Cir­cuit Court of Ap­peals in St. Louis.
