  • BROOKE FLOYD: Charged in Yell County.
A manslaughter charge has been filed against Brooke Floyd related to the incident in which her husband, Brian, and 10-month-old son, Harper, were found dead in a remote area of Yell County.

An arrest warrant released afterward, being reported here by 40/29, indicates both Floyd and her husband were taking meth and believed, perhaps because of hallucinating, they were under attack. Cause of the deaths has not been released and details of the episode remain hazy, including which death is being charged against Brooke Floyd.

UPDATE: Details emerging say an autopsy found the infant died of exposure and abandonment, according to Channel 11.

    We ended up adopting Fred due to his incorrigible stubbornness. Originally bred to track game, basset hounds can be amazingly persistent. It sometimes appears that when their noses are working, their hearing shuts down.

    But little oversight. Is a violation not a violation if a prosecutor says, 'I didn't mean to'?

    Private clubs apparently have won their battle against earlier closing hours, based on a "compromise" revealed at the City Board meeting last night.
  • The Kochs, Tom Cotton and their dislike of helping farmers

    The Koch political lobby is trying mightily to pretend it supports American farmers and that Tom Cotton's vote against the farm bill isn't a measure of farm support. A new report from a Democratic organization blows that dishonest messaging out of the water.

    When Darla talks about the tree, she calls it "he" sometimes, blurring the seam between the tree and the memory of her son.
