* A WORKER MAC ATTACK: A group working for an increase in the minimum wage for workers at fast food-franchise operations says an unspecified number of workers at outlets of national chains in Little Rock will walk off jobs Thursday morning to demonstrate support for union organizing. We'll keep an eye out.

* DISABILITY RIGHTS COMPLAINT IN HAZEN: The Disability Rights Center of Arkansas has complained about the conditions of a building used for classes for developmentally disabled students grades K-8. The classes have been moved to another building after consultation with the state Education Deparment, the DRC said, but parents still have concerns. Read the center's report here.
