SHADES OF GREYFRIARS BOBBY: The Hospital Dog in The Observer.
  • SHADES OF GREYFRIARS BOBBY: The Hospital Dog in The Observer.
You noticed didn't you, that the new Arkansas Times is now on the web. Lots to recommend there, including:

There's Gene Lyons, writing about the Asian-ancestry NBA phenom Jeremy Lin.

There's Lindsey Millar's Media column on the Democrat-Gazette's bonkers vitriol about a center for veterans on Main Street and his more rational assessment of the good and bad about Main Street these days.

There's Cheree Franco's cover story on Jill "Republican" Dabbs, whose first year as mayor of Bryant has, if nothing else, jump-started all kinds of new Saline County news outlets on the web.

And there's The Observer, to which I want to call special attention. A friend and Arkansas Blog reader sent a note about her hospital vigil with her failing father in a hospital upstream from Little Rock. I think you'll like her story about The Hospital Dog.

  • Industrial hemp pilot program coming soon to Arkansas

    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.
