Football season just around the corner
  • FOOTBALL SEASON RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER: Twelve high school teams and seven junior high teams competed in the inaugural Garrett Uekman Memorial 7-on-7 Tournament this past weekend at War Memorial Stadium. Proceeds from the tournament benefit the Garrett Uekman Foundation. Uekman, a former tight end at Little Rock Catholic and the University of Arkansas, died in November because of an enlarged heart. The foundation raises money to support heart disease research and education and provides scholarships to student athletes.

  • Opinions split within GOP on "law and order" issues. Where will Asa stand?
