Arkansas has a rich railroad history, the broad network of which peaked in the wartime 1940s when our small but growing population was served by nearly 5,000 miles of track. Railways traversed 74 of our 75 counties, and towns across the state--such as Paragould and Rogers--bear the names the railroad executives who made and lost fortunes investing in early Arkansas transportation.

Like it is: WALLY HALL: Jerry Jones treats hometown's police force

Commentary: REX NELSON: White gold

posted: 10/26/2016 5:45 a.m. Discuss

I drove through the farm country of Northeast Arkansas earlier this month as I made the short trip from the Southern Tenant Farmers Museum at Tyronza to the Johnny Cash home at Dyess. As I turned right from Arkansas 77 onto Arkansas 14, there was the Rabbit Ridge Gin, one of the largest remaining cotton gins in Arkansas. If it's October, the Rabbit Ridge Gin is a busy place.

Column: PAUL GREENBERG: Eminent Victorians

posted: 10/26/2016 5:45 a.m. Comments 3

Any more than Elizabeth II should be amused by the carryings-on of her family, good German hausfrau she long has been. When respectability is no longer respectable, all lose their bearings and genuine sentiment is replaced by only sentimentality. It is not a step up.

Uncorked: Production insight boosts experience

posted: 10/26/2016 1:54 a.m. Discuss
