EUREKA SPRINGS — After gay couples received marriage licenses during the weekend in Carroll County, the local clerk's office says it will now just issue licenses that include a man and a woman.

Carroll County clerks offices in Berryville and Eureka Springs said Monday that they were no longer granting marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Deputy clerks in both locations referred questions to County Clerk Jamie Correia. She couldn't be reached for comment.

The Berryville office said Monday that it had issued one marriage license to a gay couple. The Eureka Springs office referred all questions to Correia.

A Pulaski County judge on Friday struck down the state's ban on gay marriages, but didn't issue a stay of his order. Clerks in Arkansas 75 counties differ on the impact of the judge's ruling.
