How dry is Jonesboro

Posted By on Sun, Jun 7, 2009 at 8:36 AM

Scanning the NY Times for news of Arkansas interest, I find the college football blog's report on Arkansas State, which is ranked at 87th in the pre-season assessment. What caught my eye wasn't the football. It was this comment.

Tidbit (adult beverages edition): Jonesboro is a dry county, meaning that the sale and on-site consumption of alcohol is allowed only at special private clubs with a liquor license. I would be willing to pay up to, oh, $50,000 for a membership to such a club if I lived in a dry county. Fortunately, it seems a membership can be had on the spot for less than $10. For A.S.U. fans, does the fact that the school is located in a dry county mean no consumption of alcohol at pregame tailgates?

Indian, er, Red Wolf fans?

  • 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.
