Government and infrastructure[edit] This section needs expansion. You can help by adding to it. (September 2010) The Arkansas Department of Correction operates the Texarkana Regional Correction Center in Texarkana.[8] Arkansas residents whose permanent residence is within the city limits of Texarkana, Arkansas are exempt from Arkansas individual income taxes.[9] The Federal Courthouse (which also holds the city's only post office) is located directly on the Arkansas-Texas state line and is the only federal office building to straddle a state line. According to the City's 2009 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report,[5] the top employers in the city are: Red River Army Depot & tenants 7,200, Christus St. Michael Health Care 1,883, Cooper Tire & Rubber Company 1,700, Domtar 1,300, Wal-Mart 1,100, International Paper 925, Wadley Regional Medical Center 850, Texarkana Independent School District 795, Texarkana Arkansas School District 785, Southern Refrigerated Transport 750 Transportation[edit] Texarkana (Amtrak station) Texarkana Regional Airport Highways[edit] Interstate 30 Interstate 49 U.S. Highway 67 U.S. Highway 82 U.S. Highway 71 U.S. Highway 59 Arkansas Highway 196 Arkansas Highway 151 Arkansas Highway 296 Arkansas Highway 237


Education[edit] Public education for elementary and secondary school students is provided by two school districts: Texarkana Arkansas School District, which leads to graduating from Arkansas High School. The high school mascot is the Razorback, which was eventually selected for use by the University of Arkansas in exchange for used athletic equipment—a practice that no longer occurs.[10] A very small portion of the city is within the Genoa Central School District,[11] which leads to graduation from Genoa Central High School. The high school mascot is the Dragon with green and white serving as the school colors. Private education opportunities include: Trinity Christian School, a Baptist school serving prekindergarten through grade 12 In 2012, Texarkana became home to a branch of the University of Arkansas Hope-Texarkana (UAHT), a community college based in Hope, Arkansas, and in 2015 UAHT began partnering with the University of Arkansas Little Rock, to offer bachelor's-degree programs through UALR Texarkana, based on the UAHT Texarkana campus.[12]


Pop culture[edit] Texarkana is referenced in the song "Cotton Fields" by the American folk and blues musician Lead Belly and later recorded by several notable country rock artists, including The Highwaymen, Buck Owens, The Beach Boys and Creedence Clearwater Revival. Lead Belly (Huddie Ledbetter), was born on a cotton plantation near Linden, Texas, about 40 miles southwest of Texarkana, and later worked on a plantation near De Kalb, Texas, about 35 miles west of Texarkana. Brenda Lee's 1959 song "Let's Jump the Broomstick" references the city with the lyric "Goin' to Alabama back from Texarkana, Goin' all around the world". Texarkana is one of the places visited by the red car in The Brave Little Toaster during the song "Worthless" Tesla's 1991 song "Call It What You Want" contains the lyric "All I am is all I'll ever be, and that's just a boy from Texarkana." As the lead singer of the band is actually from Texarkana, this lyric is notably autobiographical. "Texarkana" is a 1991 song by R.E.M.. The track appears on the band's seventh studio album, Out of Time. Other popular songs that name-check the city include "All My Ex's Live in Texas" by George Strait, "I've Been Everywhere" by Hank Snow, later covered by Johnny Cash; "Texas Swing" by Clay Walker from his 2001 album Say No More; "Gimme Gimme Good Lovin'" by Crazy Elephant; "24 Hours at a Time" by the Marshall Tucker Band; "Texarkana Baby" by Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys, covered by Tennessee Ernie Ford; and two songs by Joe Ely, "Fingernails" and "I'm Gonna Strangle You Shorty." In the 1977 movie Smokey and the Bandit, The Bandit (Burt Reynolds and the Snowman Jerry Reed) are making a run from Atlanta to Texarkana to get a load of beer. Jerry Reed's 1977 hit song "East Bound and Down" from the soundtrack refers to the city in the lyric "The boys are thirsty in Atlanta and there's beer in Texarkana," regarding the lack of availability of Coors beer east of Texas at that time. (In fact, Texarkana, Texas, is dry and the alcohol distributor is actually in Texarkana, Arkansas.) In Season 5, Episode 5 "Southbound and Down" of the FX TV show Archer, Archer and the crew from ISIS encounter a hostile biker gang in Texarkana while on their way to Austin, Texas. In a 2013 episode of American Pickers on The History Channel, Frank and Mike visited several spots in Texarkana. In the movie Zombieland, Woody Harrelson refers to the relationship with his new zombie-killing companion, Jesse Eisenberg, that he figures it will last "all the way to Texarkana". Used as setting for the 1976 movie The Town That Dreaded Sundown, which was loosely based on a series of murders that occurred in the town in the spring of 1946. In the novel A Canticle for Leibowitz, centuries after a nuclear war that reduces world civilization to a second dark age, Texarkana rises as the capital of a burgeoning empire that expands across the former United States and becomes known as the Atlantic Confederacy. In 2016, a video of a speech defending LGBT rights by a Texarkana minister went viral online.[13]
