Another new media lesson

Posted By on Tue, Jul 14, 2009 at 7:31 PM

I got a tip today -- and confirmed it -- that I thought I'd save for the print edition of the Times and the Insider column, which goes on-line tomorrow afternoon.

Elsewhere on the web, I now see again the folly of sitting on news. David Kinkade reported a few minutes ago hearing on the street the story I can give you in detail.

Kane Webb, columnist, feature writer, etc., is departing the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette July 22 to teach English (and also a course in music history to plug a hole for principal Steve Straessle) at his alma mater, Catholic High School for Boys. He might pitch in on a journalism course as well.

Webb can be expected to continue to do some writing for free-lance publication after he settles in as Mr. Chips. The job of editing the Sunday Perspective section will become Sarah Prickett's -- or "Miss Sarah Prickett" as editorial page director Paul Greenberg referred to her in his e-mail to staff. She's been a copy editor in the editorial department.

  • 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.

  • Auditor Lea caught not telling the truth

    State Auditor Andrea Lea, who began her tenure in statewide office with a degree of competence unseen in some other Republican counterparts (think Treasurer Dennis Milligan particularly), is becoming more deeply mired in a political scandal.
