  • Ruth Coker Burks, the cemetery angel

    In the darkest hour of the AIDS epidemic, Ruth Coker Burks cared for hundreds of people whose families had abandoned them. Courage, love and the 30-year secret of one little graveyard in Hot Springs.

Re: “Game and Fish commission says chronic wasting disease found in Arkansas

This scares the bejeebers out of me..Google chronic wasting disease and mad cow disease
can be transferred to humans..Cattle are also at risk if it gets into the herd..Elk and deer eat from the same pastures and the elk and deer eat after the cattle..their hay and their feed..know where your food comes from..

Re: “Seth Hutchinson is the star of his father's press conference

I would have to take offence with your use of "subversive" I feel that that is a very inflaming word and From the tone of your post I took it to be...I don't feel he will takeover the government of Arkansas..and what would be so wrong with a young whipper snapper with a progressive mind and out spoken voice..an young man who could pump new blood into the system?..Arkansas is on life support and we need help..desperately..Arkansas is falling apart at the seams..look at the roads and highways south of I-40 and then look at NWA..BIG difference. Look at all of the New growth in NWA and look at my beautiful hometown of Hot Springs, Arkansas..all of those beautiful buildings falling down..when they are gone so is everything..look at Arkadelphia..gold mines for folks to start up and grow but no one here wants to do anything about any of it..maybe, just maybe we need someone like Seth to come home and organize us and get us going again like it was after WWII and Arkansas was growing..She is too beautiful of a state to be over looked it is the best kept secret on the planet..maybe it is time for somebody to take a look at what we still have to offer..something for everyone..So call him what you will to inflame others and scare them..not everyone is bad..there are just as many nice atheist if not more than christians
