NEWPORT, Ark. -- Things will be "a-maze-ing" starting today just outside of Newport.  The Mallard Country Corn Maze opens up on a seven-acre site south of town.

Jim Burton and his son, Jeff, created the maze in the form of a jack-o-lantern.  It's the second year for the maze.  The younger Burton said the maze is challenging.  He recalled that, last year, some people had to be helped to find their way out of the maze the Burtons created, which was in the shape of a duck.
