So it looks as if Central Arkansas, along with much of the rest of the state and the middle of the country, might be in for some nasty weather, a wintry mix to muck up your weekend plans. But who knows? Maybe ol' Ma Nature will throw us all a curveball and it'll be 68 degrees and mostly sunny. 

But just to be safe, several events have already been cancelled or postponed, among them all high school football championships, Cody Belew's "Belew Christmas" concert at Wildwood Park, Thursday's Lucero concert at George's in Fayetteville (Friday's show is still on as of Wednesday night) and the Christmas parade and tree-lighting events in Little Rock. 

UPDATE: Friday's Lucero show has been cancelled as well. All tickets will be refunded at the point of purchase.

We'll try to keep you posted as we learn of other cancellations, but for the most part you can just follow your instincts. If you stick your head out the window and everything's covered in ice and there's a pile of cars in the ditch, probably best to stay in.

    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.
  • Lynchings hidden in the history of the Hot Springs Confederate monument

    Hot Springs twice erupted into the kind of violence that has its roots in the issues left unresolved by the Civil War, and both times, it happened right where that monument to Confederate soldiers stands today.
