Bid Pals: The time difference

posted: 09/28/2014 2:32 a.m. Discuss

Quite a difference a Thursday night makes from a Monday afternoon. Then, a legion of folks in wheelchairs and their advocates descended on the governor's office demanding an audience. Thursday night, it was friends and supporters of United Cerebral Palsy of Central Arkansas at the Governor's Mansion, munching on canapes served from his kitchen, welcomed in by first lady Ginger Beebe.

UP AND COMING: Huckabee as keynoter; Stewpot as philanthropy

Of all our living governors past and present -- there are six -- only one is conspicuously absent from the state. President Bill Clinton? Actually, he makes it back relatively often for an ex-president and still maintains a "residence." (Perhaps one day we'll get a peek at that penthouse atop the library.)

POLO CLASSIC!: Chukkers for hearts

Of the guests at the first ever Polo Classic!, at least 200 or so came away with an expanded vocabulary. "Offsides," "sudden death," "throw in" -- any soccer mom can tell you what those mean. "Chukker?" Sounds like bust­head brought to bear in a pail and passed around Cell Block D.

KINDRED SPIRIT: Muses honor governor for positive enthusiasm

The Muses Creative Artistry Project operates out of Hot Springs, but you'd hardly know it to look at the number of performances set at the Governor's Mansion in Little Rock.

His voice is soft as footfalls in snow, a mix of Queens brogue and Southern drawl. Along with Larry Stang's goatee and frontier stare, he doesn't exactly look the part of a Molly Maguire for disabled Arkansans, but he's been out front for four decades.

OUTDOOR HALL OF FAME: Foundation Hall Call

posted: 09/14/2014 2:38 a.m. Gallery Discuss

If there's one pastime that dominates all others this time of year, it's Razorbacks football. But if there's another pastime that dominates all others, why, it'd have to be the great outdoors.

PEACEKEEPERS' PROOF: Feeling peaceful and easy part of Cocktails for a Cause

Graphing social change, it doesn't look like concentric ripples unfurling from a splash, or even a spider web. They're not 360-degree visuals. They're more like constellations. Asymmetrical, with long tails.

2 children front, center in blood cancer walk, 5K

We mock it now, the medical practice of bloodletting. Remember Steve Martin's "Medieval Barber" on Saturday Night Live?

At noon Aug. 25, several dozen stakeholders in the Arkansas Arts Center skipped lunch to hear Robert Burnett and executive director Todd Herman paint the financial picture of the center. Burnett gave the treasurer's report and promised to be brief and boring -- both of which were well-received.

UP AND COMING: Trapshooting duo target of foundation fundraiser

Who doesn't love a hall of fame? They're walk-through list­icles. And the more recondite, the better. Someday I'll get to the Mascot Hall of Fame in that quintessentially hall-of-fame state, Delaware.
