Karen Leveritt, former Times executive, dies at 47.

Posted By on Sun, Nov 3, 2013 at 8:00 PM

Karen Leveritt, 47, was found dead Sunday in her home in the Hillcrest neighborhood of Little Rock. The cause of death isn't known.  Foul play isn't suspected. She was found after friends checked when she failed to respond to phone calls.

The news is sad on many levels for us at the Times. She spent some 20 years with us, at the end as a senior account executive. She was a sales and marketing professional, whose ideas about marketing the Times were a significant part of the survival of a publication that approaches a 40th anniversary next year.

She was our friend and colleague and, to others in Hillcrest, a familiar sight striding along the sidewalks at a fast clip.

She is a former wife of Times publisher Alan Leveritt. Her survivors include their daughter, Lila, and her husband, Paul Stroube.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
