Dog days

Posted By on Fri, Aug 17, 2007 at 2:21 PM

How hot is it? Better question: how slow is it? The governor's weekly radio address is about the heat.

Arkansas’s heat wave has left many individuals scrambling and sweating, but weather forecasts indicate that relief is near. Until that time, stay safe and use caution to protect yourself and family members from preventable heat-related injuries.

And if that doesn't excite you, here's some fun and games. Mike Huckabee played a little ping pong during a visit to NPR for a softball interview.

Huckabee did better at ping pong than he did at the Illinois State Fair Republican straw poll. He finished 6th place, with 3 percent of 922 votes cast. Romney on top, then Thompson.

    The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality has denied a new permit for the C&H Hog Farms' concentrated animal feeding operation near Mount Judea (Newton County).

  • 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.
