Anybody in this state who follows the Diamond Hogs knows the name Andrew Benintendi. His name was mentioned on the radio pert near every baseball broadcast the last few years. A little ol' professional baseball team located somewhere back East--in Boston--drafted him in the first round in 2015.

OPINION — Editorial : Democrats' turn at stunts

Tax Day came and went last week without Donald Trump acknowledging that Americans should get to see their president's tax returns. An overwhelming majority of citizens--including both Democrats and Republicans--think Trump should release those returns. So do we.

OPINION: Apologize for tacky guests

The White House is not a cheesy theme park, the Resolute desk is not a prop, and the official portrait of a former first lady is not to be ridiculed. Yet, that's how President Donald Trump's White House dinner guests, including former vice presidential candidate and Gov.

On Thursday, an evening when the emotional turmoil of Arkansas' frantic and distressing execution plan reached a high point, there was a much-needed reprieve. It took place in lovely spring weather at North Little Rock's Dickey-Stephens Park, where the Arkansas Travelers opened a series with the Springfield Cardinals.

British Prime Minister Theresa May proposed an early election last week, approved by Parliament, for June 8, a mere seven weeks from now.
