Arkansas’ jobless rate drops to 5.8% December 19, 2014 at 11:32 a.m.

Tell that to the many people I personally know who are unemployed -

And see if this news encourages those who are dramatically UNDER-employed...

Arkansas weighs more abortion restrictions December 15, 2014 at 12:33 p.m.

How many who cry "BlackLivesMatter" are in favor of abortion, the #1 killer of Aftican-Americans?

Where is the consistency? Either life is precious, or it is not. Life begins at conception (when a unique set of DNA is formed).

One doesn't have to be a Bible-thumping fundamentalist to recognize that abortion is wrong, evil, and quite literally murder.

Bielema expresses commitment to Arkansas December 3, 2014 at 5:22 p.m.

Sigh... We shall see. Every coach that has left Arkansas (not under pressure to do so) has been through a similar period of denial. I hope, for Razorback fans, that he is being honest.

That being said - a 6-6 season doesn't usually attract a whole lot of big-time offers, even for a coach in the SEC. But if the Razorbacks can take another big step of improvement (can one say SEC West contenders), then Bielema's tune could change quickly.

Applications for US jobless aid jump to 313,000 November 26, 2014 at 5:08 p.m.

I love the political cover thrown about in this "article"... Just last week, the numbers appeared to be a bit lower than forecast - and these same folks were proclaiming how successful the President has been.. and how the economy is rolling along.

A week later - and the numbers dramatically reverse, and nothing but political excuses and cover being offered.

U.S. Attorney moves to dismiss mail fraud charges against Shoffner November 26, 2014 at 1 p.m.

How would additional convictions (10) not add to what she is already facing? 10 counts of a felony should come with some kind of a penalty... Something stinks.

Federal judge strikes down gay-marriage ban, but ruling stayed November 26, 2014 at 12:55 p.m.

Enough said:

"On November 2, 2011, President Obama nominated Judge Baker to be a District Judge for the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas."

U.S. unemployment aid applications fall to 291,000 November 20, 2014 at 1:54 p.m.

I just love how one figure seems to have more weight than another... Even though the latter is actually more reliable (the reason it tends to be less volatile)...

Every day, more fall off the eligible roll for unemployment. Real employment is still down, genuine numbers of those unemployed are still staggering. Records are still being set for numbers on food stamps (SNAP) and other programs.

Maybe things will improve with the change in the Senate. Maybe some of the dozens of job-creating/promoting bills that Harry Reid wouldn't even allow a vote on can be passed... But will Obama cooperate? He doesn't seem to like it when people become LESS dependent on the government.

Arkansas man gets 40 years for child porn November 4, 2014 at 12:05 p.m.

I am thankful for the relatively strong sentence given in this case. But on the other hand, I am also frustrated - when child pornography can draw a 40 year sentence (and I agree with it or even more), there are folks who take the lives of others and receive a smaller sentence.

2 dead, 4 wounded after school shooting north of Seattle, police say October 24, 2014 at 5:05 p.m.

Praying for all affected. I am desperately trying to refrain from jumping to irrational, knee-jerk assumptions.
