MARION, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas State Police say two construction workers were killed on Interstate 55 when a pickup swerved into their lane and struck them.
A preliminary report says 34-year-old James Rains of Marion and 55-year-old Marshall Turner of Memphis, Tenn., were killed Tuesday night when they were working in a closed lane on I-55 in Marion.
It wasn't just what Memphis Mayor A C Wharton proposed with a suggested 2014 operating budget.
It was how he proposed it.
As prescribed in the charter, Mayor Wharton stood in front of city council and presented his budget.
Then he dropped the microphone, turned, and swiftly walked out of the council chambers.
