Over to you

The line is open.

I  should add before closing what I know about where things stand on our effort with Channel 4 to arrange one more debate (they've had three) between Sen. Blanche Lincoln and Lt. Gov. Bill Halter, in a runoff for the Democratic nomination for Senate.

Halter, who closely trailed Lincoln in the first round of voting that produced a runoff after a third candidate took 13 percent of the vote, has said he would like to debate. The Lincoln campaign has said, so far, that it is unable to schedule an appearance June 1-8 because she'll be on her "Countdown to Victory Tour then," meeting with voters statewide.

We've asked the Lincoln campaign if any time in the interim might be possible, understanding that time is short and that the Memorial Day weekend lies ahead.

    One of the booths at this week's Ark-La-Tex Medical Cannabis Expo was hosted by the Arkansas Hemp Association, a trade group founded to promote and expand non-intoxicating industrial hemp as an agricultural crop in the state. AHA Vice President Jeremy Fisher said the first licenses to grow experimental plots of hemp in the state should be issued by the Arkansas State Plant Board next spring.
  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
