Our news partners at KARK/Fox 16 have been crusading against violent crime in Little Rock for months in the Victory Over Violence campaign.

They've gone beyond reporting about crime and response to encouragement of public commitment to make the city a safer place

To that end: A Victory Walk at 8:30 a.m. Saturday at MacArthur Park, sponsored also by Power 92. A walk around the park will end with a family-friendly event on the Arkansas Arts Center parking lot with free food, kids activities and giveaways.

More than 300 people have attended a series of neighborhood meetings since May 20 and this is the second Victory Walk. The first was in the Central High neighborhood.

All are invited to Saturday's event. More details at the Facebook page.

  • 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

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.
