Fouke is on US71 SE of Texarkana. Years ago, there were numerous sightings of a Bigfoot-type creature there. A local named Smokey Crabtree write a book about it, and Hollywood made a B movie about it back in the 70s -- it was called the Legend of Boggy Creek. You might stop by there and see if they are still seeing the "Fouke Monster" or if the story has faded away. When I last went through there in about 1978 (I got stranded in Texarkana by weather for a week between Christmas and New Years -- there was NOTHING else to do!), Smokey had a store in Fouke with big signs out front, and he was more than willing to talk to anyone who'd listen! He was quite an interesting character to talk with.
