Another kind of Madness

March 25, 2008 Emily Dickinson wrote, "A little Madness in the Spring Is wholesome even for the King." Emily Dickinson obviously never lived in Arkansas in the spring.

March 20, 2008 Volunteers used boats and four-wheel-drive trucks to assist evacuating residents in low-lying rural areas Monday night and Tuesday.

March 18, 2008 So far, it looks like this could be an interesting year on the city's political scene. With the party filings past us, now we will turn our attention to the independent filings.
