Arkansas Postings: Greatest show on earth

posted: 04/26/2015 3 a.m. Discuss

The recent decision by Ringling Brothers Circus to retire its elephant troupe reminded me that circuses have traveled the roads, rivers and rails of Arkansas for many generations. For many early Arkansans, the circus offered a respite from the demanding labors of the farm, field and factory.

Picture a 200-acre mountaintop retreat, surrounded by some of the most spectacular scenery in Arkansas, where eminent scholars, researchers, policy makers and other leaders seek dialogue on some of the nation's most vexing problems. Such a place potentially exists in the form of the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute on Petit Jean Mountain near Morrilton. Over the past decade, the institute has hosted conferences, lectures and other events revolving around important issues -- but few would say it has become a world-class educational conference center.

Pair organize model fundraiser

Want to make a bold statement? Support those organizations whose whole mission is helping others. Want to model? Model behavior like LeAnn Wolf's and Jacquelyn Harrison's, co-chairmen of Easter Seals Arkansas' The Fashion Event. Giving to others should never go out of style.

DRESSING ROOM: Aetrex strives to put healthful foot forward

I'll say it again: Footwear that helps maintain foot wellness is neither a definition for the word "ugly" nor just a thing for the older set.

INAUGURAL EVENT: Very big impression

posted: 04/26/2015 2:48 a.m. Discuss

The fact that the Hendrix College community in Conway has embraced President Bill Tsutsui's affection for a large, fire-breathing monster was hard to miss in the festivities surrounding the inauguration of the college's 11th president. A giant inflatable Godzilla greeted guests as they arrived on campus April 17 for the Pre-Inaugural Evening in the Student Life Technology Center. More subtle decorations for the dinner and reception included cut-out paper Godzillas in orange and black, the school colors.

ROCKSTAR LOUNGE: Institute parties down

posted: 04/26/2015 2:47 a.m. Discuss

"Party like a rock star" is a popular catchphrase. Well, guests of RockStar Lounge took it literally. Not that they weren't encouraged by organizers, who describe this happening as "a rock 'n' roll event where 'groupies' of the [University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences] Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute 'band' together to raise 'fans and funds' for cancer research."

MALE CALL: Shirt and tie combos extend 1-suit wardrobe

posted: 04/26/2015 2:45 a.m. Discuss

Q. As a researcher I have never needed a suit, but my new position is research for a law firm. Clearly this is a suit office in which I would stand out too much by avoiding suits. That said, I cannot, at least yet, afford too many suits, or particularly expensive ones. How can I acquire the right look for under $1,500 (preferably under $1,000)?
