Shameless self-promotion

Posted By on Sun, Jul 13, 2008 at 7:24 AM

Winners of the Arkansas Press Association's annual contest were announced at the convention this weekend.

There are threeweekly and three daily newspaper categories, based on circulation, but the weekly Arkansas Times chooses to compete in the top category against the state's daily newspapers. (Our staff of 9 compares with roughly 250 for the Democrat-Gazette.) Nonetheless, we managed to eke out a little recognition.

This year:

FIRST PLACE, coverage of education;

FIRST PLACE, website design;

FIRST PLACE, special issue (our anniversary coverage of the Little Rock school crisis);

FIRST PLACE, free-lance writing, by UALR's Dr. Johanna Miller Lewis, an article examining the roots of the 1957 crisis;

THIRD PLACE, editorial cartoonist Tommy Durham for his "Orval" strip.

    The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that an ethics complaint has been filed saying that the exploratory committee Rep. Warwick Sabin created to prepare for a run for Little Rock mayor was a subterfuge to avoid the city ordinance that doesn't allow campaign fundraising to begin until five months before the November 2018 election.Of course it is.

  • Another Republican miracle-working governor

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
