Editor's note

Former partners in business and real estate speculation are now rivals embroiled in lawsuits and foreclosures. The economic engine sputtered, and the national economic recession did not spare Northwest Arkansas. "Going for Broke" is an occasional series profiling individuals who gambled heavily on the future and rode the local real estate bubble only to leave behind multimillion dollar debts, personal financial ruin and unfinished monoliths across the region. This series, running through the rest of the year, will examine the collapse of the real estate market and its economic impact on the region.
