Little Rock radiologist Shane Whitlock, who won the 1996 Jeopardy! college championship, has won a return appearance on the show thanks to the votes of fans. He'll compete against 45 other former Jeopardy champions who have won big since 1984. The winner will claim $1 million.

Whitlock was chosen by fans over four other Jeopardy winners from the 1990s. He will compete in the tournament’s "90s Week," which will air in Little Rock on KATV Channel 7 from March 3 through 7, 2014. In addition to his win in the 1996 college championship, Whitlock was a semifinalist in the 2005 Ultimate Tournament of Champions, winning $55,000.

  • 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.
