OK, I know. Deer in Arkansas are pretty commonplace. But I snapped this fellow off my deck this morning. He's standing, as the crow flies, approximately 200 feet uphill from the drive-through loudspeaker at the Sonic on Cantrell Road.

I've been wondering about him. For years now, I've been seeing a herd of scrawny doe wandering through Knoop Park and forest around the water treatment plant. But bucks were in short supply. He had a companion who slipped behind the brush just before this shot.

  • Trump sets record attendance at Barton? Let's go to the tape.

    Prior to the appearance of Donald Trump last night in Little Rock after a nearly two-hour delay, Barton Coliseum general manager Ralph Shoptaw came before the crowd to say that attendance for the Trump event, at 11,500, had broken a record at Barton set all the way back in 1974 during a show by the blues-rock band ZZ Top.
