Conway business leaders gathered last night for updates on big local development projects, including the Central Landing shopping center. Arkansas Business reports here.

Twitter last night lit up with local boosters talking about the developments, which is to include, at Central Landing, a Dillard's department store. The Lewis Crossing shopping center will include Sam's Club, Bed, Bath and Beyond, PetCo, and Dollar Tree.

Good for Conway. Not so good for Little Rock, where sales tax revenues are already falling far short of anticipated levels from a city sales tax increase. More than ever, Conway residents need not make the trip down the freeway to Little Rock to shop.

Ah, but if they do they can gas up at a mega-convenience store and grab a 40-ounce Miller Lite at 12th and University. There's some economic development for you.

Here's the news release announcing Dillard's as an anchor for Central Landing.

  • The fall of Boehner

    Nothing so became U.S. Rep. John Boehner's tenure as speaker of the House as his manner of leaving it. Subjectively speaking, he has never appeared to believe very much of the nonsense his position required him to utter. An old school politician who literally grew up working in the family bar, his conservatism is of the traditional Midwestern kind — more Bob Dole, say, than Ted Cruz.

    As a young man, Ted Holder helped Arkansas take some of its first steps toward LGBT equality.
  • Huckawho? Ex-gov is yesterday's flavor

    Given the wild gyrations of the Republican presidential nominating race, I write these words knowing that a future meal of them remains possible, but nonetheless: Mike Huckabee is toast.
  • First Nixon, then Boehner

    Like Richard Nixon's resignation speech 41 years earlier, John Boehner's sudden valedictory from Congress may be said to be the old politician's finest moment.
  • Razorbackula and a tour through the police blotter

    A certain morbid curiosity about crime is one of the few silver linings of living in a place where the per capita crime rate rivals even the shystiest hellhole corners of the country. So that’s our topic for the week, crime reporting.
