Another snow disruption

Yes, that would appear to be snow. Federal building has closed on account of weather, KTHV says. Little Rock schools to dismiss early today — 11:30 elementary, 12:45 for higher grades. And likely more to come. Current LR forecast from Weather Service:

Snow, freezing rain, and sleet likely before 2pm, then a chance of snow and sleet between 2pm and 3pm, then a chance of rain and snow after 3pm. Cloudy, with a high near 33. North wind around 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. Total daytime ice accumulation of 0.1 to 0.3 of an inch possible. Total daytime snow and sleet accumulation of less than a half inch possible.

North Little Rock and Pulaski County schools are in for the full day.

At the noon hour, David Goins of Fox 16 is driving around area interstates and broadcasting live on ustream. It's curiously fascinating, sort of like the cameras they mount on Swiss railroad engines.

The snow, though not a driving hazard in some places in Pulaski County, altered traffic patterns as people headed home early. That produced the likes of the traffic jam shown above on Interstate 430, taken by Jacob McGuire and distributed by KATV on its Twitter account. Western areas were worse than downtown. Brian Chilson provided the shot below of slipping and sliding on Taylor Loop Road.

  • Bill to regulate dog breeders draws opposition inside chamber from industry rep

    A fight could be brewing over regulation of puppy mills, with legislation planned to better protect dogs and opposition already underway from a state representative who makes a living working with commercial dog breeders.
  • Clergy oppose another piece of gay discrimination legislation

    SB 202, which will take effect Tuesday unless Gov. Asa Hutchinson vetoes it, isn't the only legislation pending that aims at protecting discrimination against gay people. A companion bill, HB 1228, by Rep. Bob Ballinger, has similar intent to protect "conscience" as a pretext for legal discrimination against gay people in matters unrelated to religious practice.
  • Presbytery of Arkansas opposes bills aimed at gay discrimination

    The Presbytery of Arkansas, the governing body for Presbyterian churches in the northern two-thirds of Arkansas, met Saturday at Clarksville and adopted a resolution urging Gov. Asa Hutchinson to veto SB 202, which is aimed at preventing local government from passing anti-discrimination laws to protect gay people. The Presbytery also expressed its opposition to a pending House bill that, in the name of "conscience," would protect those who discriminate against gay people.
  • Hot Springs woman sues; says she was fired for being transgender

    One of the biggest lies of the battle to institutionalize legal discrimination against LGBT people in Arkansas is that protections are unneeded.
  • The hart

    It is hard for a straight person, The Observer included, to imagine what it would be like to be born gay — to be shipwrecked here on this space-going clod, where nearly every textbook, novel, film and television show, nearly every blaring screen or billboard or magazine ad, reinforces the idea that "normal" means "heterosexual."
