OPINION: Spinning a silk-based industry

posted: 02/18/2018 2:03 a.m. Discuss

Silk production does not immediately come to mind when thinking about Arkansas history. But a surprising number of 19th-century Arkansans tried their hands at producing silk, and during Reconstruction an effort was made to use it to promote Arkansas nationally as a land of potential riches.

Last week my mother told me my brother-in-law is planning on retiring this August. I don't feel weird about this at all. My brother-in-law is older than me. By about a month.

OPINION: REX NELSON: Taking out the trash

posted: 02/17/2018 4:30 a.m. Comments 11

I'm in a bad mood by the time I reach the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette newsroom in downtown Little Rock most mornings. It's not because of anything that has happened at home or work. It's because I drive Cantrell Road (which doubles as Arkansas 10) from west Little Rock. From the top of Cantrell Hill to the Episcopal Collegiate School, I must look out my window at the mounds of trash along the road.

Drivetime Mahatma: Sweepers, hands snag road debris

posted: 02/17/2018 2:55 a.m. Comments 2

Sir: With the frequent use of concrete bunker-like lane dividers on our four- and six-lane highways, the trash problem increases, an unintended consequence, perhaps, of that design. How is the above addressed? Slow-moving street sweepers, human or mechanical, must be hazards. -- Jennie

DEAR READERS: The slug/snail question from Feb. 3 generated quite a bit of response. Many readers wrote that they had tried a variety of methods. One I failed to mention that does work is shallow trays of beer.

DEAR ABBY: Woman is alarmed to discover man lied about his last name

posted: 02/17/2018 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: I've recently started seeing someone, and we have shared a wealth of information about ourselves with each other. When I asked him his last name, he said it was "Erickson." When I asked him if he had a middle name, he responded that he didn't.

Hog Calls: Trio will be counted on to slow down Aggies

Gabe Osabuohien, Darious Hall, and C.J. Jones are Arkansas Razorbacks names not turning the heads of national college basketball pundits.

It is almost like a foggy dream.

The Recruiting Guy: Tennessee RB impressed with UA coaches

posted: 02/16/2018 2:06 a.m. Discuss

OPINION: Correct observation

posted: 02/16/2018 1:54 a.m. Discuss

Half the states in the Union have abandoned Washington's Birthday on Monday for some variation of pin-the-apostrophe-on-the-word-President holiday.

DEAR ABBY: Woman's higher income may bruise her boyfriend's ego

posted: 02/16/2018 1 a.m. Discuss

DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend, "Hal," and I have been dating for a year and a half, living together for six months. I'm afraid he feels emasculated. Because I make more money than he does, a lot of the responsibility for paying the bills lands on me. We try to split things down the middle, but recent complications with his job have meant it doesn't always work out that way.

OPINION: JOHN BRUMMETT: The deficit debate

posted: 02/15/2018 4:30 a.m. Comments 8

Do deficits matter? It's a legitimate question, fully debatable, now more than ever.

Like it is: Lot for NBA scouts to digest in Hogs' game

posted: 02/15/2018 4:30 a.m. Comments 3

When Arkansas and Ole Miss were a combined nine of what seemed like a million shots in the first half Tuesday, it looked like it might be a long game.

ARKANSAS SPORTSMAN: Misfires plague gun company

posted: 02/15/2018 2:32 a.m. Discuss

Remington large rifle primers have been nearly impossible to find for several months, and now I think I know why.

The TV Column: Similar to Cops, but Live PD's 'perps' wear shirts

posted: 02/15/2018 1:50 a.m. Discuss

What else can we watch now that the Olympics are in full swing on NBC? How about real cops in action? Live.
