The Oxford American is giving Charles Portis its Lifetime Achievement in Southern Literature award, a prize the Conway-based magazine previously bestowed on Donald Harington. It comes with $10,000.

Portis will receive the award at the OA's Best of the South Gala on Saturday, April 3, at the Capitol Hotel, where Morgan Freeman will also accept an award for Outstanding Contributions to Southern Culture.

The magazine has also partnered with the Little Rock Film Festival (June 2-6) to create an award for the Best Southern Film, which also comes with a $10,000 prize.


Start a-whittlin'. On Thursday, May 6, the second annual Rock Candy 500 pinewood derby returns to the River Market Pavilion. Like last year, we'll have a 40-foot track, beer and race-themed music. Unlike last year, we'll have non-beer drinks and we're requiring advance registration. Look for a registration form on Rock Candy (arktimes.com/blogs/rockcandy) and in future issues of the Times.


Much new music to download on Rock Candy: Mixtapes from local MCs Epiphany and Arkansas Bo and all 46 songs from Elton and Betty White's long out of print “Sex Beyond the Door.”

  • Bad health care bill, again

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
  • The inadequate legacy of Brown

    LRSD continues to abdicate its responsibility to educate poor black students.
