Shrine Declared Clandestine in Arkansas

Isn't this the third occurrence of a state Shrine organization keeping an important Shriner a member, even though he had been expelled as a Mason? As I recall, one previous time in Arkansas, and once in Michigan.
Are they slow learners, or does the Shrine wish to divorce from Masonry, as I have heard rumored?
This is troubling.
