This week's Times

Posted By on Wed, Mar 3, 2010 at 3:59 PM

The new Arkansas Times is on the web. Some items of interest:

* David Koon's sad account of the short life of Hannah Grace Dowdie -- abused child, loved foster child, crime victim.

* A report on Little Rock District Judge Mark Leverett's multiple appearances on a county jail register for attorneys of people being held in jail. Was he representing criminal defendants, which judges aren't allowed to do? He won't discuss the matter with us. His feelings are apparently still sore over our reporting about, among others, his work to help Willard Proctor resist initial press inquiries into the operation of Cycle Breakers, the probation program bound up in Proctor's removal from the bench. Leverett once was attorney for the nonprofit.

* An Insider on how Mayor Mark Stodola sicced the cops on a man who complained to Director Stacy Hurst about plans to change the War Memorial Golf Course. I kid you not.
