Here in Arkansas, the state's Attorney General says property tax revenue, used to fund school districts, are at stake in a case the Arkansas Supreme Court has already decided.

Dustin McDaniel filing a petition for a rehearing in that ruling, which said the state can't keep extra money from districts who brought in more than the state's school funding levels from property taxes.

McDaniel says the ruling throws into question other cases that have gone before the court and that the new ruling could cause greater disparities between the districts.

Well, the results were mixed, but Walmart made a bold move for its Black Friday ad campaign, buying up two billion ads on Facebook last month, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.

The buy was part of Walmart's new moves in the social media and mobile advertising space. Walmart actually bought the ads in bulk before consumers saw them, which is different from the usual practice of buying them based on the number of people who saw the ad.

Observers say Facebook is testing the method in a bid to boost its own mobile advertising business.

And more change coming to midtown, specifically that intersection of Markham and University.
