Start the year off with music

Plato wrote “Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.”

Music is the soundtrack of our lives. In January, two great musical performances are being offered in the Arkansas Delta.

Three Dog Night dominated the charts in the early 1970s, enjoying 21 consecutive Billboard Top 40 hits. Led by the band’s founder, Danny Hutton, the band performs more than 75 shows a year, perfectly re-creating their larger than life songs, including “Joy to The World,” “Shambala,” “Mama Told Me (Not To Come),” “One” and others from great songwriters as Harry Nilsson, Hoyt Axton, Paul Williams and Randy Newman. Three Dog Night performs at the EACC Fine Arts Center in Forrest City on Jan. 21. Tickets are $39. To learn more, visit www.EACC.edu or call 870-633-4480.
For nearly five decades, the Bee Gees (comprised of brothers Maurice, Robin and Barry Gibb) enjoyed a musical career on an international level, longer than any other group in pop music history. The brothers and their music take center stage in Night Fever: A Tribute to the Bee Gees. The vocal stylings of Night Fever’s John Acosta, Joe Varga, and Carm Castiglione create an eerie sense of seeing the brothers Gibb in concert. Night Fever is an all-Canadian cast from Ontario, backed by professional studio musicians, that captures the sound and look of the Bee Gees. Night Fever comes to the Arkansas Delta on Jan. 26 as part of the Warfield Concerts series in Helena-West Helena. Tickets for the performance are free. For details, log on to www.WarfieldConcerts.com or phone 404-697-7197.

  • 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.
  • You want tort reform? Try this.

    The nursing home industry and the chamber of commerce finally defeated the trial lawyers in the 2017 legislature. The Republican-dominated body approved a constitutional amendment for voters in 2018 that they'll depict as close to motherhood in goodness.
  • 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.
  • Raw feelings in the Arkansas Justice Building over workload, pay

    Strained relations between the Arkansas Supreme Court and the Arkansas Court of Appeals broke into public view this week. I expect more to come.
