Garrison Keillor’s last visit to Hot Springs, in 2004, resulted in a sold-out show at Summit Arena, and he’s returning to the Spa City on Tuesday, June 28, for a 7:30 p.m. appearance. Tickets for “A Prairie Home Companion –- The Rhubarb Tour With Garrison Keillor” range from $25 to $45 through Ticketmaster (www.ticketmaster.com or 501-321-1919). “The Rhubarb Tour” is essentially the same show as the “Prairie Home Companion” shows on NPR except it isn’t broadcast live and doesn’t have performers Tim Russell and Sue Scott. What it does feature, along with legendary storyteller Keillor, are the Guys All Star Show band, a guest musician and sound effects guru Fred Newman. Also, unlike the live show, Keillor doesn’t have to stop his show at two hours, the audience experiences more material and there’s more interaction between the host and the performers.
The show is sponsored by the city’s Convention and Visitors Bureau.
It had to happen. Donald Trump's debate interjection that Hillary Clinton was a "nasty woman" has become a battle cry among women; a Twitter meme; a Facebook favorite, and, naturally, a marketing opportunity for T-shirt, button and bumper sticker makers.
It became apparent this morning that at least some money would be spent in opposition to Issue 3, a massive corporate welfare proposal to allow the state to pledge unlimited tax money to private projects and to allow local governments to also give money to private business and chamber of commerce lobbyists, a practice that has been ruled unconstitutional currently.
