  • THE MAIN EVENT: Leaping frogs.
Everyone, not just frogs, will be jumping for Conway’s Toad Suck Daze, now in its 24th year and scheduled for Friday through Sunday, April 29-May 1, in downtown Conway. The music highlights are country singing beauty Lorrie Morgan performing on Friday night and former Styx leader Dennis DeYoung (“Lady,” “Babe” etc.) performing with his new band on Saturday night, all at Simon Park. But along with music, Toad Suck Daze also features other family fun such as the “Toad Dome,” where the Toad Jump Races will be held Saturday and Sunday. There are pony and carnival rides, a petting zoo and more for the kids through Sunday. Food vendors and more will keep everyone satiated. Other music acts include Bucksnort (5 p.m.) and Joseph Vincelli (7 p.m.) leading up to Lorrie Morgan’s show at 9 p.m. Friday; Saturday the schedule starts with Anxiety (11:30 a.m.) and Big John Miller (3:30 p.m.). DeYoung and the Music of Styx begins at 9:30 p.m. Toad Suck’s 10K and 5K run-walk and Tadpole Run begin at 8 a.m. Saturday, with registration up until 7:30 a.m. at Conway High School. The Miss Toad Suck pageant is Saturday at 10 a.m. on the University of Central Arkansas campus, and is open to girls through age 18 (plus a contest for boys up to age 5). Activities officially start at 4 p.m. Friday and admission to all events is free, though some registration fees apply to a few activities.

  • Trump unfit

    Even as an oligarch, President Trump turns out to be breathtakingly incompetent. Is there any reason to suppose he's even loyal to the United States? Does he even understand the concept? Trump is loyal to Trump, and to his absurdly swollen ego. Nothing and nobody else.

  • Goodbye, Mr. Trump

    It is hard to escape the feeling that the fortunes of President Trump and the country took a decisive, and for Trump a fatal, turn May 9-10, when the president fired the director of the FBI over its investigation of Russian efforts to swing the presidential election to him and the very next day shared top-secret intelligence with Russian officials in an Oval Office meeting closed except to a Kremlin press aide toting electronic gear to capture the intimate session for Russians but not Americans.
