  • RICHARD HOWE: Announces move.
Inuvo, an internet marketing company with executive roots in Arkansas, announced today a move of its headquarters from New York city to Conway. That could bring 50 jobs.

You might recall that a former Acxiom exec, Richard Howe, who heads Inuvo, injected himself in the Little Rock Technology Park debate recently with a letter saying his company might move to the River Market neighborhood of Little Rock if the tech park is built there.

News release follows:

CONWAY, Arkansas (January 31, 2013) — Inuvo Inc. (NYSE MKT: INUV) (the "Company" or "Inuvo"), today announced it would move its corporate headquarters from New York to Conway, Arkansas. The Internet marketing and technology company anticipates the creation of 50 highly skilled jobs within the State over the next 4 years. Senior leaders in the Company have committed personally to the move.

Inuvo develops Consumer applications that make using the Internet easier and delivers targeted advertisements onto websites owned by partners and the Company. Inuvo recently announced fiscal 2012 preliminary unaudited revenues of $53.3 million dollars, up 49% from the previous year.

Working closely with the Arkansas Economic Development Commission (AEDC), Inuvo analyzed in great detail the benefits of relocation and anticipates that within 6 months of the move, the company would be on a run rate to improve operations by as much as $1.5 million dollars annually. The State will be helping Inuvo move through a grant that can be used to fund relocation and equipment expenses.

“Inuvo is committed to building a successful and profitable Internet business,” said Richard Howe, Inuvo chairman and chief executive officer. “Through this move, we both improve our operating performance and partner with a state committed to creating opportunities for knowledge-based businesses.”

Inuvo’s headquarters will be located in downtown Conway at 1111 Main Street.

“Conway continues to build an attractive climate of success for knowledge-based industries,” Governor Mike Beebe said. “Between the three universities and numerous existing technology companies, Inuvo’s leaders knew they would find a hard-working, educated workforce ready to fuel the company’s continued growth.”
Inuvo facilitates the purchase of hundreds of millions of dollars in product sales online annually through a combination of its marketing and technology skills.

"Our community is excited to welcome not only Inuvo's investment but Inuvo associates from around the country," said Mayor Tab Townsell. "Conway has spent the last decade investing in education, quality of life and infrastructure for the very purpose of attracting talented people like the one's so critical to Inuvo's success."

    The owner of The Gun Cave Indoor Shooting Range in Hot Springs, Jan Morgan, announced yesterday that she is banning the presence of Muslims in her business.

  • Americans for Prosperity sends out hundreds of thousands of mailers with fake voter registration information in North Carolina

    North Carolina's ABC affiliate reports on hundreds of thousands of mailers with false information about voter registration sent by Americans for Prosperity, the right-wing advocacy group backed by the Koch brothers. The official-looking mailers gave the wrong deadline for voter registration and told people to sign up with the wrong state agency. The mailers also gave the wrong office for questions regarding voter registration, the wrong zip code for turning in a voter registration form, and inaccurate information about how people would be notified of their precinct.
  • How the South became dead red

    Good piece in Politico from Stanford sociology professor Doug McAdam on the roots of our modern partisan divide. McAdam tells the familiar story of how the South flipped, as yellow dog Democrats in the old Confederacy abandoned the party in the wake of the Civil Rights movement.

    The Pulaski sheriff's office reported early this morning that the body of Beverly Carter, the real estate agent apparently abducted while showing a home near Scott Thursday evening, had been found in a shallow grave near Cabot. The charges against Arron Lewis, her suspected abductor, have been upgraded to capital murder.

    Sen. Mark Pryor today began what the campaign is dubbing a "Women for Pryor" statewide tour. Pryor is highlighting Cotton's votes against paycheck fairness legislation and the Violence Against Women Act (all together now: the only member of the Arkansas congressional delegation to do so). Pryor was joined by his mother, the former first lady of Arkansas Barbara Pryor, at this morning's event at the Fresco Cafe in Fayetteville. Events will be held across the state to mobilize women in support of Pryor to vote.

  • Sen. Jason Rapert reacts to Beverly Carter's death with proposal to abolish parole in Arkansas

    Sen. Jason Rapert reacted to the death of Beverly Carter with a proposal on social media to abolish parole in Arkansas. Seeking to do everything in our power to construct public policy that curtails crime and protects citizens is of course vitally important. Indeed, keeping folks safe is a foundation mission of having a government — of having a society — in the first place. Awful tragedies happen, in Arkansas, and the rest of the nation. Events like these rightly shake us. They rightly force us to examine our policy choices. But to conclude that the panacea is locking up more people, and locking them up for longer periods of time, strains credulity. Thoughts on criminal justice and incarceration in the wake of a tragedy, and a conversation with Rapert.

  • AG candidate Leslie Rutledge's voter registration cancelled by Pulaski Co. clerk

    Leslie Rutledge has been kicked off the voter rolls in Arkansas due to the fact that she is concurrently registered out of state. Does that mistake make her ineligible to run for statewide office?
