Former Little Rock TV News investigative reporter Dewayne Graham, who made a name for himself as the face of KATV's "7 on Your Side" and later ran for public office, passed away yesterday at age 63 after what a friend said was a long illness.

Graham worked as an investigative reporter for both KATV and KLRT during his long career. He ran for U.S. Congress in 2000 and was defeated in a runoff by Mike Ross, and ran unsuccessfully for Pulaski County Sheriff in 2006.

I spoke to Graham for the Arkansas Times media column in January 2005 following his departure from KLRT, where he said his assignments amounted to running "rat and roach patrol" at local restaurants, and doing “live shots in front of empty buildings in the dark." Quite a character, as I recall.

    Sims Bar-B-Q — Why had I gone so many years without a visit? How could I forget that spare ribs are richer than back ribs and infinitely better when they have a good bark-like finish and Sims' nonpareil mustard-based sauce, augmented by a healthy squirt of the incendiary house hot sauce (you have to ask). The slaw is fresh. The potato salad, too. And don't forget greens unless you are a vegetarian. Yes, I said unless you are a vegetarian. The pigmeat quotient is high. Don't forget the 40's. Budweiser. None of that craft crapola here. Dinner and plenty of beer for six ran $75. Recommended. — Max Brantley
