News

  • Starting from the top, in Argenta

    North Little Rock's Main Street revitalization got a head start on Little Rock's, thanks to Argenta Community Development Corp., whose work to restore 100 houses in the historic neighborhood starting in 1993 and create a more stable residential area was a catalyst for Main Street improvements.
  • Born free

    The Observer saw him while walking out of The Observatory the other day: a bright yellow parakeet, perched on a branch over the driveway.
  • The need for racial impact statements

    Arkansas needs the legislature to pass Senate Bill 1093, a bill requiring a racial impact statement for any legislation introduced that affects punishments for a crime. Why, some would ask? Well, we haven't finished the work that we started when we ended convict leasing that allowed the punishment system to target African American men.

Columns

  • Looking good

    The awful legislative session now raging may go into the history books as Beebe's Finest Hour. The governor wouldn't like that — he'd rather be remembered for doing good things than for trying unsuccessfully to stop bad things — but sometimes it's our response to adversity that most distinguishes us.
  • Obamacare, finally

    The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, celebrated its third birthday Saturday, and you get the feeling that the infant that was so widely unwanted after its difficult birth is gaining family adulation as it develops a personality and character.
  • Assertion v. insertion

    From a letter to the editor — "However, they did not accurately understand the truth and asserted 'contradictories' into their writings."
  • Quotes and allusions

    "Forty-two-year-old Cal Amadee of Bare Ridge was found unresponsive this morning in his cell. He was being held in a single medical cell due to flue like symptoms."
  • Don't gloss over the booze in Steubenville case

    If I were attorney general of Ohio, prosecutions in the Steubenville rape case wouldn't end with the conviction of two high school football players. In interviews, Mike DeWine indicated that he might seek additional charges, possibly obstruction of justice and failure to report child abuse.

Entertainment

  • Cosby and The Coo Coo Birads at Stickyz

    Also, Rouxster at Afterthought, the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra at the Statehouse Convention Center, MacArthur Unleashed at MacArthur Park, Machine Gun Kelly at Juanita's, 25th Annual Community Easter Sunrise Service and Hot 8 Brass Band at White Water Tavern.
  • Netflix pix: 'Kumare'

    With Easter just passed, I've been thinking a lot about faith — why we need it, what purpose it serves, and just how devout many of the people who claim to be religious really are. It's a question for the ages, and will probably be debated until the sun goes supernova or language finally devolves into a series of squeaks and grunts, whichever comes first.
