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.

  • 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.
