Best of Arkansas 2014 

cover_story1-1.png

There are so many bests in Arkansas that the Arkansas Times has to put out this issue every year to cover them all. Last year, our Best of Arkansas issue covered an artist and tattoo aficionado, a water park, french fries and blue politics in a red state. This year, along with a list of all our readers' choices, we're highlighting the Museum of Discovery, Don's Weaponry and the Encyclopedia of Arkansas (which includes an entry on slime molds). Then we asked an interior decorator what he thought about the Times' office. He said it made him want to jump in the river. We're also writing about the rap collective Young Gods of America, with a feature on Altitude Trampoline Park thrown in for some spring.

To help us on our tour of the best of the best, we enlisted Maggie, a Catahoula Leopard dog, who has a nose for winners (but may be permanently afraid of science experiments.)

We've got our editors' picks, too (find best dog, best pre-dinner snack and other iconoclastic bests there), and give you a piece of our minds on pie.

Here, the big list of bests, from clothes to golf courses to liquor stores to liberals.

  • Not giving up on Fred

    We ended up adopting Fred due to his incorrigible stubbornness. Originally bred to track game, basset hounds can be amazingly persistent. It sometimes appears that when their noses are working, their hearing shuts down.
  • Private clubs win early closing battle

    Private clubs apparently have won their battle against earlier closing hours, based on a "compromise" revealed at the City Board meeting last night.
  • Prosecutors have all the power

    But little oversight. Is a violation not a violation if a prosecutor says, 'I didn't mean to'?
  • The Kochs, Tom Cotton and their dislike of helping farmers

    The Koch political lobby is trying mightily to pretend it supports American farmers and that Tom Cotton's vote against the farm bill isn't a measure of farm support. A new report from a Democratic organization blows that dishonest messaging out of the water.
  • In Hot Springs, pizza means Deluca's

    In Hot Springs, one pizzeria is taking fresh flavors to the next level.
