News

  • Sun up

    Paul Barrows submitted this photo of a sunrise over the Little Rock National Cemetery to our eyeonarkansas Flickr page.
  • More dollars for the Chamber

    The City of Little Rock has found a new way to channel taxpayer dollars to private business concerns, with a $100,000 subsidy to Metro Little Rock Alliance, an offshoot of the Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce, added to the 2013 budget proposed last week.
  • Clinic complains about St. Vincent

    A doctor who leased space from St. Vincent Health in Sherwood sent a letter to his patients informing them that St. Vincent, in a move he called "immoral and unethical," would not renew its lease and that the clinic was moving to North Little Rock.
  • A dollar's worth

    It's been years since The Observer — heathen that we are — has cracked the onionskin pages of the Bible, but our Momma raised us right, learning us the Good Book from an early age and prodding us out of bed and to church on Sunday mornings with the toe of her good pumps on occasion.
  • Sunshine on Travs needed

    Thank you for your article on the recent firings by the Travelers (or, apparently, by Russ Meeks) ("Fans cry foul," Nov. 21). The Democrat had no coverage other than the party-line from the Travelers' office.

Columns

  • Role model

    Flush with all the Koch brothers' money they got during their election campaigns, Republican legislators could surely scrape up enough to rent a theater and watch the new "Lincoln" movie as a group. It would be money well spent. Inviting their lobbyist friends wouldn't hurt.
  • Reconsider

    More Lincoln and less Grover Norquist is a good idea for the national Republican Party too, and reportedly some Congressional Republicans are thinking about it. Even members of the Arkansas delegation are said to be reconsidering the pledge not to raise taxes that Norquist got them all to sign. (Norquist is a lobbyist who wants to assure that rich people don't have to help support the government that protects them. He calls this tax reform.)
  • A sentimental journey

    Indulge me. While many of you were feasting on Thanksgiving, I was traveling. My trip will mark the last stop on a long journey.
  • Long as the limb don't break

    Kicking around out on the lease, hoorawing Rudolph'n'em, old boar hog cut me off and run me up a shagbark snag. Lost my piece in the scramble so nothing for it but to wait him out. And him me. We settled in.
  • Manage those modifiers!

    "Mills was generally a conservative and favored keeping government expenditures in check. But because Mills was from a poor state where many received substandard health care, Goss said Mills wanted to create a government program that would assist the elderly."
  • Lyons: Debt jockeying

    What with Mitt Romney's presidential campaign having come to an ignominious end, new champions have been called forth lest mobs of pitchfork-waving grandmas and torch-bearing old men rendered fearless by Dentu-Grip breach the walls of their elegant suburban redoubts.

Entertainment

  • 'Deepsouth' at Mosaic Templars Cultural Center

    Also Super Water Sympathy at Stickyz, 'The Outsiders' at the Weekend Theater, Se7en Sharp at Fox and Hound, War(m) Chief at Stickyz, Jon Dee Graham at Stickyz and Davy Rothbart at Lyon College.
  • Now on Netflix

    We're watching a lot of Netflix Instant these days, but it seems like we spend most of our time endlessly flipping through one awful-sounding choice after another.
