New at the Times

Posted By on Wed, Dec 23, 2009 at 9:14 AM

Since routines will likely be disrupted this week by Christmas, we've posted the Dec. 24 issue of the Times early.

* Our gift to readers is a short story by David Koon about a miraculous birth.

* You've already had an early look at Ernest Dumas' examination of important changes in health legislation.

My column sends Christmas greetings to Little Rock employees who'll lose jobs next year so the city can preserve a no-cut $200,000 payment to the publicly unaccountable Chamber of Commerce economic development effort.

* Gerard Matthews has an overview of what the new EPA rule on air pollution might mean in Arkansas.

* Bob Lancaster corresponds with Santa.

* Lindsey Millar reviews the year (link fixed) in Arkansas music.

ALSO: I hope you've noticed a new feature on our webpage. (Currently it appears only on our home page,, but we'll add it soon to the extended blog page, too.) It's a constantly updating roundup of news headlines from local news sources in Arkansas. Clicking the links will take you to the other websites, but we hope you'll come back. Many of the items won't be much more than a Twitter feed summary, but it should give you a handy window of news developments in Arkansas throughout the day.
