*SAVE THE BUFFALO RIVER: Want a little bipartisanship? Here's some. Sept. 12, former U.S. Rep. Vic Snyder and his wife the Rev. Betsy Singleton, are holding a fund-raiser at their home to raise money for the effort  
to oppose the hog farm on a major tributary of the Buffalo River. Special guests include former Democratic U.S. Sen. Dale Bumpers and his wife Betty and former Republican U.S. Rep. Ed Bethune and his wife Lana. Co-hosts include a number of familiar legal, philanthropic and conservationist  names and groups.

* MORE OUTDOOR NEWS: DEER POACHERS BUSTED: The state Game and Fish Commission says 13 people from rural Sevier County and rural McCurtain County, Okla., have been issued 32 game violation citations and 25 warnings for a deer poaching operATION. A 14-month investigation concluded the group took 45 deer over bag limits. Arkansas and Oklahoma officers worked along with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Bond amounts on the violation total almost $24,000.

  • 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.
  • 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."
  • Arkansas's new anti-gay law forgets history

    It turns back the clock on civil rights.
  • 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.
