Some 135,000 Entergy customers statewide are without power today and that number is expected to rise. Most of the outages are concentrated in Hot Springs, Little Rock, Batesville and Conway.

An automated message on the Entergy customer service line indicates that it could be two days before power is restored.

Our advertising director Phyllis Britton, who lives on top of Cantrell hill, reports that Jennings Osborne's sign blew into a power line, leaving much of the area between Mississippi and River Ridge without power.

A tree took out a utility pole on Martin and 3rd near my house in Stifft Station and at least a few streets nearby seem to be in the dark.

Anyone else?

  • City ethics update; campaign limit was supposed to help the little guy

    Some more history on the Little Rock city ordinance that limits candidates for mayor and City Board to raising campaign funds to five months before the November 2018 election. It raises questions not only about Warwick Sabin's fund-raising tactics, but also Mayor Mark Stodola's carryover money.
