Arkansas Times birthday: A good time was had by all

Here's a self-indulgent post on the crowd of current and former Arkansas Timespeople who gathered for a reunion shot at the Historic Arkansas Museum last night during our 40th birthday celebration. Founders Alan Leveritt and Mara Leveritt are up there in the top row, center right.

If the Times makes 40 more, I don't expect to be around to see it.

First Lady Ginger Beebe stopped by and took a look at the display of Ark. Times covers over the last 40 years that are mounted on the second floor at HAM. It's a quickie exhibit with many amusing time capsule glimpses of moments in Arkansas over the last four decades.

I mention Mrs. Beebe not purely for shameless name dropping, but to set up an item expected later in the day. Gov. Mike Beebe was in Jonesboro last night in advance of — no, not just the football game — an announcement this after about a donation and future plans for the historic V.C. Kays House on the Arkansas State University campus.

I expect part of Beebe's future beginning in January 2015 will include some role on the ASU campus. A distinguished professor of legislative chicanery, or something like that.
