UP AND COMING: Stately desserts shine on Mansion's crystal

posted: 01/24/2016 3:45 a.m. Discuss

Ooo, that lamestream media is up to its tricks! All the health stories this year are hatin' on sugar, the stuff of soda fountain romances and ice cream socials and Nanna's hot apple pies. Real America, don't let 2016 be the Year of Unsweetness. You have the governor's support on this.

Elizabeth Elango Bintliff is charismatic. She’s sharp and happy and traveled, so after a bit, when she makes a bombastic prediction, it’s all nods around the table. “Fifty years from now, it won’t matter … what country you’re from to be the president of that country,” she says. “Nationality is going to be an obscure concept. People will be hiring presidents, the best president for that country.”

Legacies and Lunch is an ongoing collaboration between the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies and the Clinton School of Public Service. This one took place Jan. 6 before a nearly packed Ron Robinson Theater. Bumpers died Jan. 1.

LIBERTY BOWL: Memphis with emphasis

posted: 01/10/2016 2:59 a.m. Gallery Discuss

MEMPHIS -- Is it premature to say our Hogs own the Liberty Bowl? Um, yes. We've come through twice since 2010 and won both times, but there were those two stinkers in the 1980s. Hmm.

BEALE STREET CARAVAN: Fans in Memphis find kooky collection in parade

posted: 01/10/2016 2:51 a.m. Gallery Discuss

MEMPHIS -- If Hot Springs' Bridge Street is the site of the world's shortest St. Patrick's Day parade, Beale Street on New Year's Day was the setting of the kookiest collection of parade entrants red- and purple-clad football fans may have ever seen.

History drives pair to help kids

The loudest thing ever heard on Earth was the eruption of Krakatoa in 1883. They say the sound circled the globe four times and ruptured the eardrums of sailors as much as 40 miles at sea. Way, way down on the list, but still ear-popping, is the sound of school kids singing inside the Boys and Girls Club of Saline County.
