News

  • Upset

    Stunned Arkansas fans look on as Louisiana-Monroe celebrates a 34-31 overtime victory over the Razorbacks on Saturday at War Memorial Stadium.
  • Mark Martin fires Santa

    You may not know attorney Robert Newcomb, 67, but you've seen the full-figured lawyer with the snowy beard repeatedly in the media doing his annual turn as Santa Claus. He's everywhere, from Children's Hospital to CARTI events and all over TV and the papers.
  • Darr's concerns allayed

    In Lt. Gov. Mark Darr's recent tirade over efforts to protect the environment (his SUV isn't hurting any polar bears, he whined) he mentioned a "$500,000 solar panel" that had "never been turned on."
  • Dreaming of a catfish car

    The Observer was saddened to open the paper this week and learn the tale of how the Obamamobile — a 1978 Cutlass on circus-wagon-sized wheels, emblazoned with President Obama's face — had been stolen from its owner in Little Rock, taken to Pine Bluff and stripped.
  • Offended

    In reading a recent edition of the Arkansas Times I was very offended by the remarks in Bob Lancaster's column.

Columns

  • Voter cutback

    Representative Bryan King, R-Berryville, sponsored a voter-ID bill in the legislature last year, intending to assure that people who might vote Democratic wouldn't get the opportunity to do so.
  • Are you better off?

    News coverage of presidential campaigns used to follow Harold Ross's prime directive: If you can't be funny be interesting. I go back to Mencken's Archangel Woodrow and Thurber's Dewey, Dewey Fog, but I don't remember it rising to funny after Hunter Thompson on Jimmy Carter in 1976. It might've occasionally got up to interesting after that, but it's been pretty categorically dismal for at least 20 years now.
  • Fraught with naught

    " 'I was proud of him,' Winsockey Coach Ram Bamm said. 'I think he's really in a good place in the fact that he got his first start out of the way, which for a quarterback is big. I think it gives him a little more piece of mind ...' "

Entertainment

  • Fantasia to Robinson Center

    Also 'West of Memphis' at Market Street, Saint Vitus at Revolution, Ben Nichols and Adam Faucett at Revolution, American Aquarium and Austin Lucas at White Water Tavern, 2 Chainz at the Metroplex and 'Arkansas Champion Trees' at Terry House Community Arts Center.
  • Cast shines in superb 'Henry V'

    Last Friday night, as many Arkansans were having trees flung into their homes by the strongest non-tornadic storm to blow through Central Arkansas in quite some time, I was sitting comfortably in a sold-out theater, watching one of the most compelling, thoughtful, well-acted, and, yes, hilarious, Shakespeare plays I have ever seen. The Rep's current take on "Henry V" is a spectacle to behold.

Dining

  • RJ Tao goes big

    Upon first glance, it would be easy to dismiss RJ Tao as just another Asian-fusion restaurant relying on sleek, modern decor to bring in the crowds, but it would be a mistake to do so.

Cartoons
