Putting out some line

Posted By on Wed, May 5, 2010 at 4:30 PM

You have to pick up the slack.

I have to go home to finish race-day prep for the Brantley family Rock Candy 500 entry. (I'll make the starting line thanks to a major axle repair from David Koon.)

The Pinewood Derby-style races are tomorrow night, 7-9 p.m. Thursday, at the River Market pavilion. You need not be entered to watch, have a cold drink and join in the cause for the Centers for Youth and Families. If last year is a guide, some pretty slick model cars, carved from blocks of wood, will be on display.

These are busy times for the Times. Remember the 2nd District Congress Democratic candidate debates at 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 11 at Sticky Fingerz. All ages admitted (no smoking, in case you wondered). Gerard Matthews will  moderate. E-mail questions are welcome in advance and also will be taken from the floor that evening -- maxbrantley@arktimes.com

  • 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.
