Yes, good things do happen in Arkansas schools, including in the Little Rock School District.

We've just passed out plaques and checks at UALR to the 2015 Academic All-Star team — 19 of the 20 appear in the photo above. High grades and high test scores were typical, but the range of other interests was huge — from a state champion pole vaulter to an accordion play to a budding OBU-bound politician (who leans Democratic) to a prize-winning fiction writer.

You can find more on all of them in this week's cover story on the winners.

  • Take yourself there: Mavis Staples coming to LR for Central High performance

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
