Yellen suggests rate hike is coming but offers no timetable August 26, 2016 at 5:17 p.m.

Guess it's a good thing I got my mortgage in -- fixed-rate, too (anything else is just stupid right now).

The colonel's secret recipe revealed? Not so fast, says KFC August 26, 2016 at 5:13 p.m.

They probably claimed it wasn't the recipe only because it doesn't specifically say to pressure-cook the chicken. (Yes, KFC chicken is pressure-cooked; they call it "pressure frying" so they can't be sued over the "Fried" in "Kentucky Fried Chicken".)

Worms found in burgers at 2 McDonald's restaurants August 26, 2016 at 5:10 p.m.

I wonder if the worms were planted, like that finger in Wendy's chili.

Arkansas asks U.S. Supreme Court to weigh in on crash reports August 26, 2016 at 5:08 p.m.

By AG Rutledge's logic, you won't be able to show people your driver's license at all because everything on it is from records covered by DPPA. The Arkansas Supreme Court ruled correctly; SCOTUS should reject her petition.

A pattern emerges August 25, 2016 at 6:06 p.m.

Funny no one at THIS newspaper mentions the Trump Foundation, which The Donald hasn't significantly contributed to in years; he gets other people to pony up the money while he gets the credit. It might as well be called the WWE Foundation, since Vince McMahon and family are its biggest donors...

Metroplan staff, advisers at odds on 6-lane waiver; I-30 widening plans call for 8, 10 lanes August 25, 2016 at 5:56 p.m.

@bamasnake: I guess you haven't seen what the misnamed Martha Mitchell "Expressway" did to downtown Pine Bluff, which is exactly what the "boulevard" alternative would do to downtown Little Rock -- choke it off with a signal-laden surface street where a freeway is needed. The treehuggers keep pointing to Portland, Oregon, but there's one huge difference: I-5 was simply moved across the Willamette River from downtown -- NOT an option here. 30 Crossing should have been built 30 years ago!

Arkansas governor criticizes marijuana, casino proposals August 25, 2016 at 5:46 p.m.

I'm conflicted on medical marijuana, but I can agree with Asa on the casino amendment -- for FAR different reasons than him. My problem with the casino amendment is it names specific entities in the Constitution as authorized to operate casinos in certain border counties -- EXTREMELY BAD PUBLIC POLICY even for casinos. IMO, the only one with a reasonable chance of success is Boone County, and that's only because Branson has no casinos; Washington County's will be run by its Cherokee competition (can you spell "collusion"?) and Miller County is too close to Shreveport & Bossier City.

In Little Rock, Tim Kaine vows fight for state in November August 24, 2016 at 12:31 p.m.

Mrcharles, apparently you forgot that Hillary drew her highest percentage of the vote against Obama in the 2008 primaries in... Arkansas. Perhaps the national polls and conventional wisdom assume we're a red state in presidential politics (other than Bill we haven't voted for a Democrat for president since Jimmy Carter), but most of the Friends of Bill are also Friends of Hillary. (And that doesn't even include Donald Trump’s growing toxicity.) The way our politics has gone in recent years it'll definitely be tough, but IMO Hillary can still win Arkansas.
.
BTW, I don't get all your references. I got Asa being a Bob Jones grad (he's only "moderate" in comparison to the rest of the GOP, and also because he was pragmatically forced to save private option); but Tom Cotton is from Dardanelle, not Dover. (Perhaps you're complaining about someone else, but what you said applies equally to our mama's boy in the Senate.) Paul Greenberg is all but retired by now. And not all Christians are "ruthless genocidal racist(s)".

KARK, KLRT adding digital channels for central Arkansas viewers August 23, 2016 at 8:06 p.m.

KARZ should have been described as a sister station of either (a) KARK or (b) both KARK & KLRT, depending on how you interpret the entities controlling those stations. KARK & KARZ are both owned directly by Nexstar Broadcasting; KLRT & KASN are owned by Mission Broadcasting, a Nexstar-affiliated shell entity created to get around FCC limits on station ownership, and operated by Nexstar alongside KARK & KARZ. (The FCC tried to ban this type of "virtual quadropoly" arrangement retroactively, but Congress ordered them to grandfather existing combinations like this one.) It may be appropriate to treat Mission's stations as Nexstar's, but if so the reporter should have tied KARZ to *both* Nexstar/Mission stations mentioned earlier in the article, not *just* KLRT. (If you count Mission separately, KARZ is a sister of KARK but *not* KLRT.)

Police: Arkansan arrested on rape charges, accused of having relationship with child August 23, 2016 at 7:50 p.m.

The writer was being too kind, though at least the headline writer got it right: Unless it falls under the "Romeo & Juliet" exception (not applicable here), sex with a 14-year-old is statutory rape in Arkansas even if the child consented. If the charges hold up in court, he's looking at up to life in prison.
