  • HU President Bruce McLarty: Let's Road Trip!

Let's say you're wanting to take a little road trip, have a little fun. And let's say you're a big-time college basketball fan, so you want to pick somewhere you can catch some great college hoops. Fun!

We're all thinking it...SEARCY, ARKANSAS!

Harding University beat out nine other schools to win the "Best Road Trip Destination in College Basketball" competition, presented by Enterprise Rent-A-Car. They topped big-time basketball programs like University of Indiana and University of Arizona, as well as locales like Charleston, S.C. and Memphis. CBS Sports will film and air a feature on "what makes the Rhodes Field House, the HU campus and the town of Searcy, Ark., a special place for any college basketball fan to visit."

The press release says that "the 10 finalists were chosen based on a wide range of categories including in-game atmosphere, history of the program, pre- and post-game events, scenery and attractions of the town and many more." Harding won via a two-week Facebook voting competition. I will leave it to you to determine whether Harding's curfew and Searcy's "scenery and attractions" led to more Facebook time for the Rhodes Rowdies.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
