  • The Revolutioners won Round 3 of the Showcase Semifinals

When it comes to unbridled, hedonistic rock 'n' roll excess, Little Rock's The Revolutioners know how to bring it. The five piece won Round 3 and will advance to the finals, March 1 at Revolution.

Showcase judge CT wrote, "Arkansas's answer to Buckcherry. Very good, very professional. Arena Rock, if that was still around." Mandy McBryde noted her favorite Revolutioners lyric: " 'I wanna feel your friction baby,' is a rock opera I wanna see."

Grayson Shelton wrote, "Hell of a stage show! I'm a sucker for a good rock 'n' roll band. Velvet Revolver meets Buckcherry." Guest judge Travis Hill wrote "Fantastic frontman. I love rock 'n' roll."

  • Fayetteville City Clerk's office certifies signatures — civil rights ordinance will go to a public vote

    The Fayetteville City Clerk's office has certified that enough signatures were gathered to trigger a special election on Fayetteville's new civil rights ordinance, the Fayetteville Flyer reports. The effort to force a popular vote on the ordinance, led by a Repeal 119, a church-led group, gathered 5,714 signatures. Petitioners needed 4,905; the City Clerk's office began certifying the signatures last week and stopped at the end of the day Friday once enough signatures had been validated. The ordinance to discourage discrimination in housing and employment passed in the City Council 6-2 last month. The vote came after 10 hours of discussion, with many conservatives furious because the classes of people protected included gay and transgender people.
  • Tom Cotton's evasive maneuvering on the Farm Bill

    Rep. Tom Cotton continues to take a ribbing for his recent ad attempting cover on his vote against the Farm Bill (Cotton, you'll remember, claimed that Obama "hijacked" it and turned it into a food stamp bill; factcheckers pounced). Cotton is trying to have his row crops and eat them too, claiming he supports farm subsidies while voting against them.
