History, for a price 

You never know what might turn up on eBay. Like the doors to law offices that housed, among others, U.S. Sen John L. McClellan and Hamilton Moses, the former head of Arkansas Power & Light Co.

The doors were once in the Union Life Building and, according to the listing on eBay, are being sold as part of an estate. The starting bid is $9,995; no bid has been made yet. They don't come with the clout McClellan once wielded. Sorry.

The teak doors were taken down when the building was remodeled and given to former Little Rock Mayor Haco Boyd. He later gave them to John Dotson, who kept them in his garage for about 40 years.

    An interesting controversy is brewing in Conway Public Schools, periodically a scene of discord as more liberal constituents object to the heavy dose of religion that powerful local churches have tried to inject into the schools, particularly in sex education short on science and long on abstinence.
