Another Home Plate Hero image: update

Deloneys Homage to Josh Gibson
  • Deloney's "Homage to Josh Gibson"

I love Rex Deloney's work, and so imagine how happy I am to see that he has contributed a home plate painting to the "Home Plate Heroes" auction sponsored by the Jim Elder Good Sport Fund to benefit kids' non-profits in Arkansas. Online bidding starts Sept. 17 at; they'll be displayed at the Thea Foundation, 401 Main St., NLR, through Sept. 28.

Deloney is chair of Central High School's art department. Lucky students.

The painting is a tribute to Josh Gibson, catcher for the Homestead Grays in the Negro Leagues.

Update: Susan Elder, Jim Elder's daughter and the woman behind "Home Plate Heroes," sent this better image of Deloney's work.

In a clever collaboration with the Central Arkansas Library System, 3D objects from the permanent collection will be exhibited at CALS branches, its Main Library, and the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies.

  • Game and Fish agrees to study turtle harvesting; imposes tiny ban

    A ban on turtle harvesting in the Gulf Coastal Plain and along the St. Francis River in Clay and Green counties voted on today by the state Game and Fish Commission won't make much of a dent in the total take of freshwater turtles in Arkansas — 0.2 percent come from the Gulf Coastal Plain for example —  but the commission did agree to study whether its trapping rules are having a negative consequence on native turtles.
