I just took a look at the D-G's NW website and found a good story on the perennial fight in Eureka Springs over marketing and the recent decline in tourism income, as measured by the sales tax. The marketing community, at a minimum, will be interested At its core, I'd guess, are larger questions about what it takes to lure tourism these days. Quaint and a passion play go so far. Roller coasters, entertainment, gambling, etc., may go farther. Surely I can stir a difference of opinion in ever-ready-to-fuss Eureka.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
