Joe Johnson plays Santa Claus to 50 kids

PAYING IT FORWARD: Joe Johnson.
  • PAYING IT FORWARD: Joe Johnson.

There's plenty of philanthropy out there at Christmas time, but I've always had a soft spot for those who labor each year to line up a Christmas for children in protective custody of the state Division of Child and Family Services.

The Joe Johnson Foundation has stepped up this year. It's providing support for food, games and a $100 shopping spree for 50 kids tonight at a local Walmart.

Merry Christmas to the NBA star by way of Little Rock Central and the University of Arkansas.

  • 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.
