The end of the road

U.S. Wet/dry map
  • From BBC News.

*Great map from the BBC's Altered States section. Though too bad it's not more interactive. Click on it to see a larger version on BBC's website. From just eyeballing the map, it looks like we have more dry counties than any other state.

*No podcast this week. We'll return next week.

*As I think Max has predicted on the podcast or elsewhere before, it looks like Little Rock businessman, Gov. Beebe pal and Arkansas Highway commissioner John Burkhalter is eying a gubernatorial run. Jason Tolbert today dug up a Burkhalter4Governor.com website that's registered in Burkhalter's name. Sounds like a fairly epic primary battle is brewing.

  • Metroplan's report shows a changing housing market in Central Arkansas

    Growth in rental housing has far outpaced growth in the housing market in recent years in Central Arkansas and that's likely to continue, according to a new report by Metroplan, the regional planning organization. Three percent fewer people in the region (i.e., the six counties that comprise the Little Rock-North Little Rock-Conway metropolitan statistical area) owned homes in 2014 than they did in 2010; nationally, 1.2 percent do. Meanwhile, rental housing has grown by 7 percent in Central Arkansas and 9 percent nationally.

    Wynton Marsalis visited Pine Bluff yesterday to pay a visit to the 93-year-old jazz legend Clark Terry, currently in the hospital (and accepting donations for his medical care). Terry, born in St. Louis and mentored by Louis Armstrong, played in bands with icons like Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus and Quincy Jones, and was a stated influence on trumpeters like Miles Davis and Dizzy Gillespie (who considered Terry the greatest jazz trumpeter in the world).
