New image for MLK Commission

In celebration of the first 100 days in office of Executive Director DuShun Scarbrough (above, in suit), the Martin Luther King Jr. Commission held a press conference and reception at the Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce this afternoon. The presentation was short on specifics about the revamped commission's activities, though Scarbrough afterwards said the commission has sponsored an RBI baseball team and participated in Juneteenth activities this past weekend. Perhaps the biggest change is the commission's fresh image, concocted by Design Group Marketing, a local company. Scarbrough said the marketing work, as well as the food spread at the reception, was paid for by two new sponsors, Denny's and A'Test Consulting, a North Little Rock drug testing firm. The firm's head, Jeff Sims, said the firm will work with the commission to develop diversity programs. The ceremony also marked the commission's new membership in the Little Rock Chamber of Commerce.

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
  • Arkansans join House vote to gut Americans with Disabilities Act

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.

    The open line. Kids marching for gun control. And a recollection of how hard it is in Arkansas to restrict gun ownership, even by proven thugs.
