    True to a showman's form, though, Stuart ripped through a variety show-style set of hits he'd co-written for other people , his own hits and hits from the formidable repertoire he's developed as a country music sideman of the first degree, like "Orange Blossom Special." Stuart invoked former bandmate Johnny Cash with "Ring of Fire," introduced with the squarely nonrhetorical question: "Y'all ever heard of Dyess, Arkansas?" Even the younger country fans - otherwise concerned with filing through the crowd of 13,445 to find their seats, and without spilling their craft beer - could get excited about that one, and cheered again when Stuart declared that "Little Rock is the surf music capital of the world right now."

    A man charged with crashing his vehicle into Arkansas' Ten Commandments display nearly three years after he was accused of destroying a monument at Oklahoma's Capitol has been found mentally unfit to go to trial. A Pulaski County judge on Thursday found Michael Tate Reed unfit to proceed and ordered him to be held by the state hospital for further evaluation. Judge Chris Piazza set a September 2018 hearing on Reed's mental status. Reed faces a felony criminal mischief charge for destroying Arkansas' privately funded Ten Commandments statue in late June, less than 24 hours after it had been installed outside the state Capitol. Reed was arrested in the 2014 destruction of Oklahoma's Ten Commandments monument, but prosecutors declined to pursue criminal charges in that case.

    With two games left in the Razorback football season, University of Arkansas Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Jeff Long has been let go effective immediately. The move comes a week after a lengthy meeting of the university’s Board of Trustees where no action was taken against Long. Chancellor Joseph Steinmetz announced Long’s firing in a press release Wednesday. “Since coming to Fayetteville in 2008, Jeff has led our department with character and integrity and helped move us forward in so many ways,” Steinmetz said. “However, over the past year, Jeff has lost the support of many of our fans, alumni, key supporters, and members of the university leadership, support that I believe is critical in our pursuit of excellence.” The news comes during a difficult season for the Razorback football team, with four wins and six losses so far. Sports historian and author Evin Demirel said the team’s record coupled with lagging ticket sales factored in to the chancellor’s decision. “As much

  • Appeals Court Won't Reconsider Arkansas Planned Parenthood DefundingAppeals Court Won't Reconsider Arkansas Planned Parenthood Defunding

    A federal appeals court says it won't reconsider a panel's ruling that Arkansas can block Medicaid funding to Planned Parenthood, two years after the state ended its contract with the organization over videos secretly recorded by an anti-abortion group. The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday denied a request by three Planned Parenthood Great Plains patients to reconsider a three-judge panel's decision upholding the state's defunding decision. The panel in August vacated a federal judge's preliminary injunction that prevented Arkansas from suspending Medicaid payments for services rendered to patients in the state. Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson ended the state's Medicaid contract with the group in 2015. Planned Parenthood said a review by the full court was needed because the panel's ruling conflicts with four other appeals court decisions.

The task force will use a model based on smoke management guidelines for forestry landowners. “They’ll use it as a template but draft smoke management guidelines that are voluntary but more applicable for agriculture, specifically with crops,” said Lauren Waldrip Ward, executive director of the Arkansas Rice Federation.

    Plumes of smoke fill the autumn skies in the Delta as farmers burn row crop field refuse, and many complain about the side-effects of the smoke. Arkansas rice industry leaders have decided to form a task force to examine the issue, Arkansas Rice Federation Executive Director Lauren Waldrip Ward told Talk Business & Politics. How many members the task force will have and when it will meet have not been determined, but it will include stakeholders from across the state’s agricultural industries and there will be communications with those who oppose field burning, she said. “The primary goal is to draft management guidelines. … We want to educate our farmers about the best agricultural practices,” she said. Arkansas rice farmers and stakeholders met at the Brinkley Convention Center on Tuesday (Nov. 7) for board meetings of the Arkansas Rice Council, Arkansas Rice Farmers and Arkansas Rice Federation. Members decided a task force was needed to study the issue. The task force will work

  • Walmart Adds Robots to Select Stores in Central ArkansasWalmart Adds Robots to Select Stores in Central Arkansas

    Select Arkansas Walmart stores in Sherwood, Searcy, and Pine Bluff are expected to receive robots Tuesday to aid associates in their work. It’s part of an expanded test that started in Pennsylvania, with the retail giant implementing robots in 50 of its locations. The robots will use automation to scan store shelves, help keep track of inventory levels, check prices that could be wrong, or where labels are missing. "Customer habits and the shopping experiences are changing at an incredibly fast pace right now," says Walmart spokesman Kory Lundberg. "As technology is changing the workplace, what we want to do is partner with our associates to make sure it empowers them to deliver for customers." The robots are a continuation of Walmart implementing technology in its stores. In August, the company added pickup towers in about 20 of its locations, which a Business Insider report described as "giant self-service kiosks that retrieve customers' online orders in its stores."

    An east Arkansas school district is being taken over by the state, effective Monday. The Department of Education says a review last month found the Earle School District had "substantial audit violations and unallowable expenses." Close to $2 million in improper expenditures of state and federal funds are alleged beginning in the fall of 2015. Arkansas Education Commissioner Johnny Key said in a statement: Our main priority is to ensure the students in the Earle School District receive a quality education. While we never want to exercise the right to assume authority of a school district, this action is necessary in light of the serious lack of financial stability and academic oversight and ongoing risk of improper spending of taxpayer dollars. Our immediate objective is to stabilize the finances and management of the district so every student in the district has the ability to learn and thrive in a sound educational environment.

  • Inmate Asks Arkansas High Court To Halt Upcoming ExecutionInmate Asks Arkansas High Court To Halt Upcoming Execution

    An Arkansas inmate scheduled to receive a lethal injection this week has asked the state's highest court to halt his execution amid his attorneys' claims that he doesn't understand why he is to be put to death. Attorneys for Jack Greene asked the state Supreme Court on Monday to issue an emergency stay of execution. Greene is scheduled to be executed Thursday night for the 1991 death of Sidney Burnett, who was beaten with a can of hominy, stabbed and later shot. Greene's attorneys asked for the stay while they appeal a lower court's dismissal of their lawsuit challenging an Arkansas law giving the state's top prison official the authority to determine whether Greene is competent to be executed. Greene's attorneys say their inmate suffers from psychotic delusions.

  • Court Rules Arkansas Should Identify Maker Of Lethal Injection DrugCourt Rules Arkansas Should Identify Maker Of Lethal Injection Drug

    Arkansas's highest court has ruled state prison officials must identify the manufacturer of one of the lethal injection drugs they plan to use to put a convicted murderer to death next week. The state Supreme Court on Thursday upheld part of a lower court's ruling ordering the Department of Correction to release the labels for its supply of Midazolam, one of three drugs Arkansas uses in its lethal injection process. The court said the labels must be released, but said a Pulaski County judge must determine what identifying information other than the manufacturer can be withheld. A Pulaski County judge in September ordered the state to release the labels without any information withheld, but justices halted that ordered while the state appealed. Arkansas law keeps the supplier of its execution drugs secret. Meanwhile a lawyer for a death row inmate set for execution next week is telling a judge that the state's prisons director doesn't have the expertise to decide whether the man should
