New this week

Posted By on Wed, Dec 12, 2007 at 5:52 PM

The new Ark. Times is on the web. Among the items:

The cover story: LR native filmmaker Jeff Nichols and his acclaimed "Shotgun Stories," premiering here this week.

Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks is coming to town next week for a demonstration in behalf of the West Memphis Three. I heard today, too, that Larry King may bring his show here for the event. I'm sure THAT will move Mike Beebe.

Meet Chris Lemley, an Atkins native, who's a big name in professional video gaming.

Road trip: Some Arkansas Republicans are heading to Iowa to campaign AGAINST Mike Huckabee. John Williams' article includes quotes from former Huckabee staffers with bones to pick with the would-be president.

Ernie Dumas reviews a key frailty in the would-be president -- dishonesty.

Then there's Gauldin.


(Corrected version. Initial version said Dumond pardon, rather than parole.)
