An emphatic NO: Issue No. 2. It's yet another scheme to divert public money to private developers.

All the candidates we endorse are Democrats or independents. So low has the Republican Party sunk that anyone running under its banner is suspect. A clean Lake Maumelle might not survive a Republican majority on the Pulaski County Quorum Court (the JP's). Early voting starts Monday, Oct. 22.

  • Hutchinson's dilemma same as Beebe's and his GOP affiliation doesn't help

    Ernest Dumas writes about the difficulties faced by Gov. Asa Hutchinson in matching the achievements of Democratic Gov. Mike Beebe, even though he, like the majority of the legislature is a Republican. In short, Hutchinson needs Obamacare money, though his party rests on a foundation that hates Obamacare.
  • Visionary Arkansans 2015

    They make an impact.
  • Brantley: South toward home

    A two-week cruise from Vancouver to Alaska was nicely timed for the August heat wave. It dipped into the 40s during my visit to the Hubbard Glacier, loudly "calving" with mighty booms of cracking ice. Here's a brief politically tinged travelogue.
  • New York Times fails again

    If one were of a low and suspicious nature regarding the New York Times' historically inept Washington Bureau, one might suspect yet another example of the "Clinton Rules" — that is, a shaky allegation unsupported by facts.

  • The end of an era

    We're sad to report that Doug Smith has decided to retire. Though he's been listed as an associate editor on our masthead for the last 22 years, he has in fact been the conscience of the Arkansas Times. He has written all but a handful of our unsigned editorials since we introduced an opinion page in 1992.

  • A stand for equality

    Last week, Attorney General Dustin McDaniel became the first elected statewide official to express support for same-sex marriage. His announcement came days before Circuit Judge Chris Piazza is expected to rule on a challenge to the state's constitutional ban on same-sex marriage. Soon after, a federal challenge of the law is expected to move forward. McDaniel has pledged to "zealously" defend the Arkansas Constitution but said he wanted the public to know where he stood.

  • Same old, same old

    Remarking as we were on the dreariness of this year's election campaigns, we failed to pay sufficient tribute to the NRA, one of the most unsavory and, in its predictability, dullest of the biennial participants in the passing political parade.

  • Fayetteville ordinance: the good vs. the perfect

    A few weeks back a fundraising invitation arrived from "For Fayetteville," the ballot group supporting an antidiscrimination ordinance to be considered by the city's voters on Sept. 8. After several days of pondering, I ultimately decided to drop by the back room of Doe's in Little Rock with a small check. The reason for the hesitation: The ordinance has real flaws in terms of the breadth of its religious exemptions.

  • Asa Hutchinson: trying to please

    Mike Beebe is celebrated for the finesse with which he governed Arkansas with a legislature that for two years was effectively controlled by the other party and for his last two years with Republican numerical control as well. So what will they say about Asa Hutchinson, who must govern with his party owning lopsided majorities in both legislative houses?
