In these Times

Ben Nichols and Roy Berry during a soundcheck in Fayetteville, Ark.

Just taking to the opportunity to remind those of you who don't normally pick up the print edition that we do have one and there is some really good stuff in there. 

For example, this week's cover story about Little Rock native Ben Nichols and his band Lucero.  After toiling on the road for years the band has a major label record deal and a great new album.

In the Arkansas Reporter, Leslie Peacock explores why it costs $1.3 million to run the River Market every year.

Wildwood's Harvest Festival is the focus of the A&E feature.

Max talks about free clinics, Brummett talks about the lt. governor and Bob Lancaster talks about Cabot, geezers, hyperbole, cliches and fastidious refinement.

Plus, Doug Smith tells you how to use the English language in his always-loquacious Words column, David Koon tells you what to watch on TV, and Lindsey Millar and Paul Peterson tell you what to do during the coming week. 

The enthusiastic participation of taxpayer-financed governments of Little Rock and North Little Rock promoting and helping stage City Fest, a Christian revival, also gets further attention.
