News

  • New digs at lottery HQ

    The Arkansas Lottery spent $15,901 on a construction project in late August that included a new and expanded office for Ernestine Middleton, the lottery's vice president of administration.
  • Stimulating

    Here's some stimulus spending even Republicans like Walter Hussman can love. eStem--heavily supported by a number of financiers with Republican leanings--announced that it got almost $120,000 in federal stimulus money from the Obama administration.
  • The Observer, Nov. 4

    Those radical pinko ladies that Tim Griffin is so afraid of--those crazies who support such wild ideas as "peace" and "nuclear disarmament"--held their own Rally to Restore Sanity where they foisted their radical pinko agendas off on the public.

Columns

  • WeirdArrogant

    It's the kind of election year when a state legislative candidate with a bribery conviction in his past says if that's all his opponents can use against him, he's pretty much of a model citizen.
  • Your tax dollars at work

    Arkansas Community Organizations asked Little Rock City Board candidates how they felt about the city giving $200,000 each year to the Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce. Meanwhile, the chamber spits on accountability. They won't name who gets our money.
  • We're sorry, world

    Speaking as the state, we are sorry about those ghastly and evil ravings of that person who tragically sat on the board of one of our small rural districts. But there are a few things you must understand.
  • Message failure

    The Democratic Party got along fine most of the time without a controlling message and much discipline, but it paid a dear price this week. Both parties were reminded it's not what you do or stand for, but the quality of your public relations.
  • Guess what

    If you did the right thing in the election this week, I hope you've made a will and got your affairs in order. It's not lead pipe they'll be coming for you but I'm just saying.
  • Words, Nov. 4

    Max Brantley has won this year's William Safire Memorial Award for his description of the state Game and Fish commissioners who schemed to evade the Freedom of Information law.

  • In Brief, Nov. 4-6

    Rocky Votolato plays Juanita's, 'Hamlet' returns to The Rep, DJs Raydar and Shaolin spin for Revolution's 'Zodiac Party.'
  • Hogs winning at Vandy, losing at life

    The Hogs may have beaten Vandy on the field, but in the classroom there's no competition. Arkansas' GSR (55 percent) trails Vandy by 34 percentage points. That's the scholastic equivalent of about a bazillion touchdowns.
  • In Memory of Lisa Blount

    We treat our days as something to pass through to get somewhere else, and when we do that, we lose them. Death can at least be a reminder of that. That is death's only consolation.

Dining

  • Bubba's

    You can get beef--you can even get a salad, if you want--but pork is king here. A good eating place in a town that has more than its share.
  • What's Cookin', Nov. 4

    Troy Deal, co-owner of Zin Urban Wine and Beer Bar, 300 River Market Ave., said he and his partner Michael Puckett plan to open next week after a soft opening this weekend
