  • CHANCELLOR GEARHART: Got an opinion? Write UA board.
I  suggested yesterday that anybody with an opinion on the recent controversy over financial and public relations matters at the University of Arkansas should get in touch with University of Arkansas Board of Trustee members before next week's board meeting.

The Board is expected to review the matter and Chancellor David Gearhart's handling of it at its meeting Jan. 23-24 . Gearhart has strong support on the board and many expect a vote of confidence, though my sources relate some intense criticism emanating from elements of the board, too.

My point is that — if the issue is important — people should speak. Otherwise, the board could conclude it's been much ado about nothing. (I'm currently in the somewhat-too-much-ado camp, though decidedly believe it's been about something.)

I provided a link yesterday to telephone and mail contact information.

Her's a list of what I'm told by an unofficial source are good e-mail addresses:

Stephen Broughton sabroughtonmd@msn.com

C.C. Gibson III ccgiii@gibsonandkeith.com

John Goodson jcgoodson@kglawfirm.com

Sam Hilburn shilburn@hilburnlawfirm.com

Ben Hyneman benh@southernpioneer.com

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
  • Arkansans join House vote to gut Americans with Disabilities Act
