The charging stations, manufactured by Coulomb Technologies and part of Coulomb's ChargePoint Network, can be found in front of the Clinton School of Public Service, 1200 President Clinton Ave., and on the top level of UAMS' North Parking Deck (labeled Patient Parking 2) off West Markham Street.
Each charging station, which looks like a parking meter, offers 110-volt and 240-volt charges. Use of them is free.
ChargePoint Network has a free mobile phone app that allows drivers to search and filter for charging stations across the country by status: available, in use, voltage level, and paid or free stations. To download the app for iPhone click here. To download the app for Blackberry click here.
The Little Rock stations will serve as a research project focused on learning some of the operating characteristics and uses of electric vehicles. The ChargePoint Network allows Entergy access to data including usage reports, greenhouse gas and gasoline savings.

An art and theater partnership is being formed by Market Street Cinema, 1521 Merrill Drive, Little Rock, and former members of the Arkansas Community Arts Cooperative, which disbanded in mid-July because of financial troubles, lack of sponsorship and the inability to recruit new membersa nd new board members.
Market Street Cinema Arts Partnership will provide a permanent home at Market Street Cinema for ACAC's functions along with a venue for other independent artists and community groups and display space for art work.
Many of the functions will parallel the theater’s existing offerings, such as hosting panel discussions on local filmmaking and the ACAC’s biennial Show Your Shorts, an evening of short movies (from 5-30 minutes in length) by local filmmakers.

Just a quick post since we have been so busy unpacking in our new house! I cannot take credit for finding this cute and fun website: ICTOAD. A friend on Facebook made a post about it, and it stands for "I Can't Think Of A Date." You go to the website and pick a category for the type of date. You can also pick the price and duration. It isn't specific to a certain area of the country or zip code either. SUCH a great resource for thinking of fun things to do with your significant other!!
