  • Heartbeat goes country

    One of our favorite radio stations died last week, and we didn't even notice. At 5 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 12, Heartbeat 106.7 FM, The Beat of the City, switched over to a New Country format, and was rebranded as 106.7 FM, The Ride. Anyone expecting The Isley Brothers or Bill Withers or Michael Jackson or The SOS Band will have to settle for Luke Bryan.

  • Summit won't help mass incarceration

    I have decided to boycott Gov. Hutchinson's Restore Hope Summit, aimed at bringing faith leaders together to discuss ways to improve recidivism. I have publicly criticized this and the previous administration about governmental policies and practices responsible for producing the largest population of incarcerated persons in Arkansas's history. Those policies, not anything faith leaders are doing, have done, or may be asked to do, lie at the foot of the Arkansas version of mass incarceration.

    Social Security was 80 years old Friday and by general accounts more popular than ever, but the celebration was muted by the wild Republican presidential race.
