Who's behind "The State of Arkansas" fan page?

Yesterday, "The State of Arkansas" Facebook page caught our attention. A status update on the page encouraged citizens to celebrate "Dr. Martin Luther King/General Robert E. Lee Day," which drew some heated comments from Facebookers and those on our blog as well. A link on the "info" section of the page takes viewers to the state parks and tourism website. However, Dena Woerner, communications manager for the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism, says she has no idea who is running the site and, to her knowledge, it is not affiliated with the state in any way. That would explain the somewhat unofficial tone of some the comments from the site's administrator.

So, who's running the page? And, to what end? We'd like to know.

  • 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.
