  • FAMILY FUN: At Ray Winder.
Pennant fever Travs hope to deliver knockout punch with boxing champ Taylor on the scene. If the Arkansas Travelers are going to have any more home games in 2005, they have to win the second half of the Texas League East Division pennant. As of press time this week, the Travs were leading the division with a week and a half to go. Before the Travs take to the road against a couple of division rivals, they conclude their regular season home slate against the Wichita Wranglers on Thursday and Friday, Aug. 25-26, at Ray Winder Field. World middleweight champion and Little Rock native Jermain Taylor will be on hand at the Friday finale, which starts at 7:10 p.m. Taylor, who has a 25-0 record and won the title July 16 against Bernard Hopkins, will sign autographs before the game and throw out the ceremonial first pitch. Official Jermain Taylor merchandise will be available for purchase throughout the game and for autographing (no personal items may be brought for autographs). Gates open at 6:10 p.m. Children are invited to run the bases after Friday’s game. Admission is $6 for adults and $3 for children 14 and under. Box seats are an additional $2. Call 664-1555 or visit www.travs.com.

  • In the margins

    A rediscovered violin concerto brings an oft-forgotten composer into the limelight.
  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
  • Arkansans join House vote to gut Americans with Disabilities Act

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.
