  • 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.
