COMMENT

Don’t forget Steve Little I enjoy reading Pearls About Swine. I just had to drop you a note though concerning your recent statement that the current Razorbacks have “the best kicker in program history.” Obviously you must be too young to remember Steve Little who played for Frank Broyles and Lou Holtz. Not only was he first team All-American in 1977, but he still holds the record for longest field goal in NCAA history. Also, he was a first round NFL draft pick (15th overall.) On kick-offs (from the 40 yard line back then), he would routinely kick the ball through the uprights and out of the end zone. Sadly, his life tragically spiraled downward after leaving the university. Zach Hocker is very good. But if you saw Steve Little play, I bet you would agree he is in a class by himself when it comes to Razorback kickers. I know newspaper columns spark debate and you guys enjoy getting both positive and negative feedback, so here is mine. Keep up the good work. Scott Robertson Altheimer

From the web In response to Gene Lyons’ column, “Government spending truths”: At which year did the U.S. economy grow the most in the past 65 years? Answer: 1950, the year John Boozman was born. GDP growth was 7 percent. Top tax rate was 90 percent and President Eisenhower made no attempt to cut taxes. Not that it matters but the national debt was over 70 percent of GDP, very close to 105 percent. At the end of WWII the national debt was 120 percent of GDP. Real Americans who built this great nation understood the need to pay for wars, pay for highways, pay for schools, pay for bridges, pay for large public impoundment lakes, pay for scientific advancement. Our government built large hospitals all over the nation to care for our nation’s wounded. No one raised a stink, no senator engaged in useless filibusters to block them. Today, the richest of Americans think it’s foolish and beneath them to pay for this nation’s wars, bridges, highways, schools, scientific advancement and take care of veterans. But those same greedy and selfish people are very willing to create masses of veterans while, like Mitt Romney with $21 million income per year, refuse to serve in the nation’s military. 4

In 1950 the average CEO earned eight times more than the average worker. Today, the average CEO earns over 175 times more than the average worker and often pays a lower income tax rate. eLwood El, you failed to mention how much the government spent during Ike’s administration and the size of the deficit and debt. Was that deliberate? I remember because I lived during that era. There was no Medicare, Medicaid or Amtrak, nor was there an EPA. The Department of Education did not exist.

Government was infinitely smaller. Dr. Strangelove In response to Max Brantley’s column, “Gay equality now”: Exactly the same “religious exemptions” were used historically to justify continued slavery as are used today to justify controlling women’s reproductive rights and the equal rights of LGBT Americans. It took the bloodshed of the Civil War and finally abolition in 1865 to bring an end to “the peculiar institution” in Arkansas. Which STILL occupies the

bottom rungs by virtually all measures — proudly, speaking of “peculiar.” Norma Bates Sadly, the old saying still holds true: Don’t pray in my school and I won’t think in your church. How could a religion predicated on love be so misused to justify hate? Perhaps “Christians” should forget about the tribal Old Testament and, like the rest of the Christian world, concentrate on the New Testament. The world would be a better place. Peterjkraus In response to the Big Picture “Inconsequential News Quiz: Police Beat Edition”: When it comes to the lead about a man firing a handgun at other human beings it makes me wonder. What definition of inconsequential does the story header refer to? Is it a) of little or no importance; insignificant; trivial b) not showing good judgment, not thinking about things in a reasonable or sensible way. You must mean b) not showing good judgment; not thinking about things in a reasonable or sensible way, right? You certainly would not apply a) of little or no importance; insignificant; trivial. That application would be unconscionable. Is this column presided over by a junior reporter who would trivialize issues due to lack of experience? That must be the case for otherwise it would mean that a more experienced reporter lacks sound judgment. OH! Look what I did! I applied b) to you. Ironic, right? Jan Wade In response to the Arkansas Blog post from Nov. 4 “Beebe releases State Police report on parole system; no crimes, but systemic problems”: A realistic and manageable caseload per parole officer is 99 percent of the solution. Until then the rest is just arranging deck chairs. Citizen1 The problem of housing state prisoners in county jails is becoming more and more acute. In Benton County, our jail is probably housing as many state prisoners as it is county prisoners and pre-trial detainees. A lot of misdemeanor offenders are escaping incarceration as a result. plainjim

WORD S

Spiel on spill Challis Muniz writes: “Is it now accepted that people will use ‘spill’ for ‘spiel’? It drives me batty, but I feel like I’m fighting a losing battle, as ‘spill’ kinda makes sense in that a bunch of words have got to ‘spill’ out of your mouth …” This is the first I’ve heard of spill being used for spiel. They have nothing in common. Probably don’t even like each other very much. Spill is derived from a Middle English word for “kill, destroy.” Spiel is from Yiddish. Garner’s Modern American Usage says “spiel is best pronounced /speel/ not in the mock Yiddish fashion that has become so common (/shpeel/) which is jocular.” I didn’t know that people were using spill for spiel, and I didn’t know they were pronouncing spiel shpeel. I may not be the best person to seek information from regarding spielery. To change the subject (not entirely successfully — I can’t answer this one either), why are bats considered mentally unstable? I’m not aware they’re any dizzier than the next flying mammal. It’s true they look sort of out of control when they’re darting around, but they don’t have a lot of accidents. Maybe people just think that mammals should keep their feet on the

ground, that any mammal that flies is inherently confused. But better flying bats than flying elephants, I suppose. Those elephants might get in your hair.

Is it cut and dried or cut and dry? And what does it mean either way? — Kurt Meesom Slacke. The original and still the best is cut and dried, although cut and dry has made advances. Either way it means “decided, settled, not open to change.” Wiktionary says the phrase dates back to 1710, and is “from herbs being cut and dried for sale, rather than fresh.” We’ve noted, disapprovingly, the increasing use of fail for failure. I recently saw on the sports page a headline about a high school football player who might enroll at Fayetteville: “Former LSU commit considering Arkansas.” Note my objections. To the usage, that is. I’ll take all the LSU-type football players we can get.

WEEK THAT WAS

It was a good week for ...

ANOTHER CANDIDATE ANNOUNCEMENT. Former FEMA Director James Lee Witt officially announced his candidacy for 4th District Congress. Janis Percefull of Hot Springs has previously announced as a Democratic candidate. Tommy Moll and Rep. Bruce Westerman are running as Republicans. HENDRIX COLLEGE. The Conway private college hired Dr. William Tsutsui, who’s been dean of the College of Humanities and Sciences at SMU, as its next president. He’ll start in June.

It was a bad week for ...

BIG RIVER STEEL. Nucor Steel, already operating in Mississippi County, has mounted a challenge to state approval of an air permit for startup competitor Big River Steel. State lawmakers approved a $125 million incentive package for Big River during this year’s legislative session. An Arkansas Economic Development official said the challenge would delay the start of construction of the new steel mill from late 2013 to the first quarter of 2014.

ARKANSANS RECEIVING FEDERAL SUPPLEMENTAL NUTRITION. Half a million Arkansans —17 percent of the state, including 232,000 children and 91,000 elderly residents — saw their food stamp benefits cut by five percent. That may not sound like a sizeable percentage cut, but it’s the equivalent to about 16 meals a month for a family of three based on the cost of the U.S. Agriculture Department’s “Thrifty Food Plan.” These are needed cuts, according to U.S. Rep. Tom Cotton and his ilk. SOUTH ARKANSAS. If all of the world’s ice caps melted, much of south Arkansas would be under water and Pine Bluff would be on the edge of a vast bay, according to National Geographic. Bye to Houston, New Orleans, San Francisco and all of Florida, too. ALSO: Karen Leveritt, 47, died in Little Rock. The news is sad on many levels for us at the Times. She spent some 20 years with us, at the end as a senior account executive. She was a sales and marketing professional, whose ideas about marketing the Times were a significant part of the survival of a publication that approaches a 40th anniversary next year. She was our friend and colleague and, to others in Hillcrest, a familiar sight striding along the sidewalks at a fast clip. She is a former wife of Times publisher Alan Leveritt. Her survivors include their daughter, Lila, and her husband, Paul Stroube. A memorial service will be held Friday, Nov. 8 at Ruebel Funeral Home at 3:30 p.m. with visitation beginning at 2 p.m.

Aide’s turn

Gaining

rkansas still trails other states in the enactment of modern marijuana laws but not by so much as it once did. A medical marijuana law was rejected by voters last year, but a similar proposal will likely be on the ballot this year, with a good chance for adoption. Sooner or later medical marijuana will be approved in Arkansas. The national trend has been set. Colorado and Washington have legalized, taxed and regulated the growth and sale of marijuana. The Council of the District of Columbia, scene of some of the bitterest marijuana confrontations, is poised to approve a bill that would decriminalize small amounts of marijuana. The mayor has endorsed the proposal. There are still people who argue that criminal penalties deter some people from smoking marijuana. Their number declines. Seventeen states now have some form of decriminalization of marijuana, and federal agencies are losing their enthusiasm for the drug war. It should have happened long ago.

t’s not often that aides to elected officials get to deliver the good lines, but such was the case at Sen. Mark Pryor’s office the other day. Reporters asked if the senator would support legislation prohibiting job discrimination against gays. A Pryor spokesman, Michael Teague, responded for his boss: “The senator thinks that no one should be fired or harassed in the workplace based on their sexual orientation.” Hear, hear. The Pryor-Teague doctrine should end discussion of the bill, which is now backed by all Senate Democrats. (Pryor was one of the last. He’s never reckless.) The bill would prohibit employers from making hiring decisions based on sexual orientation. It exempts certain schools, associations and other groups that are already exempt from the antidiscrimination provisions of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. It applies to entities only with more than 15 employees. The bill should be approved by acclamation, without an audible discouraging word. It won’t be, though. Too fair. Already, Arkansas’s other senator, the Republican John Boozman, has tried in his inarticulate way. to cloud the issue. Announcing he’ll vote against the bill, Boozman said, “I have concerns that you are having special provisions for a certain class of people.” A certain class? Does that mean Americans? Nobody does gibberish better than Boozman. Rep. Tom Cotton, who is running against Pryor, deals in tougher talk. He’ll be clearer and meaner. Cotton and his Tea Party allies seem to believe that hate is the secret to winning elections. Pryor won’t have seen the like of it.

Keeping score on health care

R

epublicans see another electoral windfall thanks to the messaging opportunity from the disastrous beginning of full implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. It’s a simple message. Obamacare is all about losers. Somebody’s insurance cost more. Somebody’s current insurance policy has been cancelled. Somebody is paying for coverage they don’t need. It’s effective. And when it’s delivered by a cancer patient forced to change doctors, devastating at first glance. The afflicted state of the health exchange website and President Obama’s unqualified promise about the ability to retain existing health coverage provide many more 30-second ad possibilities. There’s a simple counter-message, if it seems cold to say. There are millions more winners than losers. Thanks to Obamacare, millions of people are guaranteed insurance coverage despite pre-existing health conditions. Millions of people with unemployed children can continue to put kids on parents’ insurance. Millions of seniors have been relieved of a gap in pharmaceutical coverage. Millions of working poor get insurance for the first time with government help. Millions benefit from better insurance coverage. Irony abounds. Republican Rep. John Burris has Tweeted repeatedly about the sad tales of canceled insurance. I asked him if a bigger story isn’t the overall benefit, regrettable as screw-ups are. Burris responded that those who supported the law wanted to talk about winners and those who didn’t wanted to talk about losers. So what do you make of Burris? He was one of the architects of the legislative plan to implement Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion here, a direct benefit to 250,000 Arkies. Now you’d think he wants his own plan to fail. About the canceled policies: They constitute a tiny portion of the population. As many have reported, about 80 percent of Americans are covered already at work or

through government plans. That leaves 20 percent. But 14 percent have no insurance (though they soon will, thanks to Obamacare.) That leaves 6 percent with the chance of losing current insurMAX ance, though guaranteed to get BRANTLEY maxbrantley@arktimes.com more comprehensive insurance, if at higher cost. Many of them are going to be thrown off plans that barely qualify as insurance (no hospitalization coverage, for example). But assume the worst for all of them. Isn’t the won/loss ratio still 94-6? The problem, of course, is that 6 percent amounts to millions of people, a large and living tally of unhappiness. MIT’s Jonathan Gruber, who oversaw Romneycare in Massachusetts, told the New Yorker that he estimated about 3 percent of the public would be losers — losing insurance plans sufficient for their needs and forced into another policy that costs more. “We have to as a society be able to accept that,” he told the New Yorker. “Don’t get me wrong, that’s a shame, but no law in the history of America makes everyone better off.” There was a time, I think, that you could have sold universal health care as a good thing, the American ideal, as much as public education, national defense and a national interstate system, though some would pay higher costs than others. There was a time, too, when we were known for problem solving. But I don’t see a belief in shared purpose today. Far more in evidence are people taking delight in misfortune and intent on creating obstacles rather than solutions. Math tells me that when we share the risks (child birth, breast cancer, prostate cancer) and share the costs (taxes, mandates, curbs on spending), we all gain. But for too many others, it’s every man for himself. There’s some additional irony in the political identity of that president who gave that famous house divided speech.

OPINION

Judges admit error

P

oliticians of the executive and legislative breeds have been known to say “I was wrong,” but mea culpas are almost unheard of in the high reaches of the judicial branch, where respect for its infallibility is supposed to preserve trust in the courts. But of late we have seen judicial giants, reflecting on their careers, say that they had erred in some of the great cases of our time. They happen to have been Republican judges — that is, they were appointed by Republican presidents and as active judges had mainly followed the course expected of them. In the spring, Sandra Day O’Connor, the first woman justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, was talking about her 20 years on the court with editors of the Chicago Tribune, the unofficial organ of Midwestern Republicanism. About the court’s most far-reaching decision of our time, Bush v. Gore, in which it halted the Florida vote recount and essentially declared George W. Bush

the next president, O’Connor regretted casting the decisive vote. The court, she said, probERNEST ably should have DUMAS refused to accept the appeal: “We’re not going to take it. Goodbye.” But she and four other Republican justices voted to hear it and granted the request by Bush’s lawyers. It was not she but Antonin Scalia who wrote the brief order. Counting questionable ballots (remember those hanging chads?), Scalia said, “threaten[s] irreparable harm to petitioner Bush, and to the country, by casting a cloud upon what he claims to be the legitimacy of his election.” The order gave Bush Florida and the presidency by one electoral vote while he lost the national popular vote by 550,000. O’Connor did not exactly embrace the dissenting opinion, penned by

ENDA past and future

A

s I was coming out to myself and to others nearly a quarter century ago, the most pressing gay rights issue was stopping employment discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. All assumed that protecting gay and lesbian folks in the workplace would eventually be the first major national civil rights victory for a movement then entering the mainstream of political debate. Despite the fact that employment discrimination was then the gay rights issue for which there was the most support (support that has grown into near consensus in the years since), the issues of “gays in the military” and marriage equality fascinatingly leapfrogged it to move to the fore of the national debate on gay rights. While not the original plan, presenting gay and lesbian members of the armed service and same-sex couples and their families as the “faces” of the LGBT movement (along with LGBT folks coming out within families all across the country) reframed the entire gay rights debate in a manner with which many more Americans could relate. Yet, despite this effective reframing of gay and lesbian life in America and important victories on both ending “Don’t Ask,

Don’t Tell” and on the marriage front, employment discrimination for being LGBT remains entirely JAY legal in 33 states BARTH and remains a real source of workplace stress for thousands of LGBT Americans. We have returned to the past this year as LGBT groups such as Chad Griffin’s Human Rights Campaign focus energy on a renewed effort to pass a workplace antidiscrimination bill. The focus of their energy has been locking in the votes of red state Democrats and shifting the views of Republicans representing states that are increasingly progressive on LGBT issues. On Monday, they achieved their goal on both fronts in the U.S. Senate; following a key procedural vote on Monday, the Senate is poised to pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) later this week. In 1996, the Senate came achingly close to passing a version of the bill. Then Vice President Al Gore sat in the Senate chamber prepared to break a tie vote in favor of the legislation. However, that tie vote was not to come

another straying Republican, John Paul Stevens, who said the decision would rattle “the Nation’s confidence in the judge as an impartial guardian of the rule of law.” But she was clearly troubled by her pivotal vote. Jeffrey Toobin in the New Yorker described it as a political journey for the justice. She had been the Republican leader of the Arizona Senate before President Reagan appointed her to the court, but she most admired the first President Bush — for her, the quintessential Republican president. So on election night 2000 she was avidly rooting for the son. It did not seem so imprudent to stop the recount and hand the job to the man she thought best suited for it. She soon retired so Bush could appoint her successor. She became deeply disillusioned with him on many counts, not least of which was his appointment of hard-right justices committed to perceived Republican causes that veered far from what she considered good conservative orthodoxy. She was publicly enraged by the majority’s Citizens United decision,

which allowed vast secret wealth to be pumped into elections. Then last week O’Connor appeared in robes again at the Supreme Court, this time to marry a gay couple from Washington. The symbolism of her change of heart was apparent, although as a justice O’Connor had never decided a question about gay marriage. But in 1986 she and her legal twin, Anthony Kennedy, had cast the deciding votes in Bowers v. Hardwick, where the court said states like Georgia and Arkansas did not violate the U.S. Constitution by criminalizing consensual homosexual acts. O’Connor’s symbolic act gave implicit but powerful blessing to the Supreme Court majority this spring in a California case that implied that state gay-marriage bans like Arkansas’s would be found unconstitutional once the right case arrived there. (Perhaps that will be Arkansas’s.) Last, and more to the point, was the comment in the latest book by Judge Richard A. Posner, senior judge of the U. S. Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals,

as the legislation failed 49 to 50. The missing vote, an announced vote in favor, was that of Arkansas Sen. David Pryor. Sen. Mark Pryor is deeply aware that his father missed that vote because he was in Little Rock awaiting the outcome of his son’s surgery for a cancer from which he fully recovered. On Monday, he joined a supermajority of other senators in advancing the legislation towards a final vote. The current version of ENDA is simultaneously better and worse than the 1996 version of the law that failed to pass the Senate (and a 2007 version that passed the House but died in the Senate). First, the legislation is decidedly more progressive in that it protects individuals not just on the basis of sexual orientation but also gender identity. After intense factionalism was created by Rep. Barney Frank’s decision to remove “gender identity” from the 2007 legislation, the LGBT movement clarified that no legislation would move forward without the inclusion of gender identity even if it slowed down passage. Because a disproportionate number of cases of discrimination impact those who are transgender, it’s a crucially important inclusion. On the other hand, the religious exemption in the current ENDA is decidedly broader than in earlier bills

(and based on deal-making to get the final votes to meet the key 60 vote Senate hurdle on Monday is likely to get even a bit broader). Unquestionably, religious institutions have a free exercise right to hire and fire employees closely tied to their mission. However, under the current ENDA proposal, a religiously affiliated university could legally fire a lesbian housekeeper or groundskeeper. It is an exemption much broader than those covering religious employers in federal laws tackling discrimination based on race, ethnicity, national origin, disability or sex. In short, it’s simply too broad and advocacy groups plan to focus their energy on recrafting the religious exemption in a more reasonable manner for the future. They have some time because ENDA will die in the House this year. The House leadership and the majority of the GOP caucus oppose the legislation and social conservative groups are telling Republicans who might waver that they will be punished in GOP primaries in the future if they support the legislation. However, along with open service in the military by gay and lesbian soldiers and marriage equality, ENDA will eventually become law. But for now it will likely be a coda rather than the prelude in America’s latest civil rights movement.

ith Arkansas in the midst of what has become the lengthiest losing streak since its native son launched a bid for the presidency, it seems apropos for the Hogs to adopt some Clintonian resiliency to finish this tortured 2013 season. Bielema’s basically undergoing some de facto impeachment proceedings as it is. Auburn beat the Hogs 35-17 Saturday night at Fayetteville, and here’s the best thing that can be said about the team’s sixth consecutive loss: The Hogs more or less kept pace with the Tigers, and in fact had the proper game plan to neuter the tempo that Gus Malzahn employs. By halftime, Arkansas had outgained Auburn by 75 yards, controlled the clock for more than 70 percent of the frame ... and trailed 14-3 going to the locker room. In a Murphy’s Law kind of season, this was the archetype episode. An onside kick attempt was neither surprising nor successful. A series of wrong-headed playcalls inside the Tiger 5 kept the Hogs from getting their first TD in nearly 10 full quarters and stemmed their building momentum. In the third quarter, a defensive back managed to have a pretty good blanket on a streaking Auburn receiver, only to wind up faltering on tracking the underthrown heave and giving futile chase on what ended up being an 88-yard scoring toss. A.J. Derby saw the field for a handful of snaps while Brandon Allen’s leg was getting stapled together, and managed to turn it over on only half of those! How bad is it going when TWO offensive pass interference calls for picking — one blatant, one phantasmal — end up nullifying big third-down conversions? How bad is it going when Zach Hocker punches a kickoff out of bounds? How bad is it going when a wide receiver has four catches for 50 yards and it’s being regarded as a breakout game? It’s remarkable that one program can suffer like this. Penn State went through the most crippling and sordid internal combustion in memory and still has a winning program after being gutted by the NCAA. The Hogs’ head coach skids face-first on a remote highway and two years later the scar tissue won’t even break down. This has to be exhausting for Bielema. His bravado was both appreciable and admirable early, because he

yearned to instill confidence in a shaken bunch, but now he’s in charge of a 3-6 team that clearly BEAU wants to play out WILCOX the string at Malzahn pace. This isn’t an allegation of quitting, but an assertion that young, outclassed teams find it understandably hard to pull themselves up after being broken down for weeks on end. Here’s the oddity of the Auburn loss, though: for as undesirable as the outcome may have been, there were strange and welcome sprinklings of hope. Allen actually sprang back into action and threw a few nice balls, and did take some shots downfield, errant though they may have been on occasion. Jonathan Williams ran more authoritatively than he had all season, and Keon Hatcher did show flashes of being a primary target. The offense was dogged by its own errors, but at least on this night, there were moments where progress was discernible. Defensively, we got to see more of Brooks Ellis than we had in prior weeks, and the freshman from Fayetteville was both productive (six tackles and a halfsack) and praiseworthy. If Chris Ash thinks he manned the position well — the defensive coordinator offered that Ellis “did a great job” — then it’s the best middle linebacking news we’ve had in a season where that position has been as deficient as any other. The defensive line gamely battled as well, even if Tre Mason ultimately was able to get in space a bit too often. Look, dog Malzahn all you want for some of his gimmickry and his spit-polished veneer, but his offense is a bear to contain, and often Saturday the Hogs had a reasonable grip on things when the odds were long. What we did see in the third and fourth quarter was a Razorback team that wasn’t happy about being picked on. The memorable injury fraud engineered by Auburn as the Hogs engaged in a last-ditch effort to regain respectability was transparent, and yet it may have been a completely necessary stickpoke at a whipped Hog. Bielema was suitably incensed, and the fans were too, but perhaps in a few years we’ll all be thanking Malzahn for that laughable chicanery followed by his hollow rebuke later.

THE OBSERVER NOTES ON THE PASSING SCENE

Plum Bayou THE OTHER DAY, one of The Observer’s friends on Dr. Zuckerberg’s Fantabulous Electric Book o’ Countenances posted a story about how giant Asian carp — bottomfeeders built like zeppelins — have successfully infiltrated the watershed of the Great Lakes. That story got us thinking of something we haven’t thought of in a good 15 years, which soon had us laughing. Back when The Observer was still in high school, Pa got us into frog gigging. He was a driven man and loved frog legs, so his quest for them wasn’t limited to scoping out the local ponds for little croakers. No, he wanted the Moby Dick of frogs — frogs that had never laid eyes on a human being. To that end, The Observer spent many a weekend night in the summer trolling Plum Bayou near Scott. While it might be a kayaker’s paradise now for all we know, back then Plum Bayou was something straight out of Jurassic Park, all vines, sawgrass, leaning trees and mud. Turn on a light, and the mosquitoes would soon be blizzard thick around your head, to the point where we started wearing bandanas over our mouths in self-defense. Some stretches, there would be a fallen log to drag the boat over every 30 feet, and everywhere we looked, it seemed, there was another giant cottonmouth, eyes like rubies, bodies fat and gleaming with poison. Some nights, we saw great, writhing wads of them floating together — mating, we suppose. You may shiver in silent horror now. God knows we are. If The Observer winds up in hell, we figure it might look like Plum Bayou on an August night. That said, the frogging was extremely good: foot-long giants with drumsticks worthy of KFC. Some nights, we’d leave there coated in mud head to toe, lugging great, squeaking baskets of them ready for the knife and then hot grease. And man, the eatin’. To get on with the getting on, though, there were four of us on Plum Bayou that night, each perched on a seat in a aluminum flat-bottom boat: The Observer, Pa, and two school friends, Ryan and Roger. The night was like being boiled in Vaseline, crawling with bugs. We’d been seeing snakes all night. At one point, Pa’s big, car-battery-powered spotlight picked out a marvel: a fish skipping sideways across the top of the water. Only when it reached the bank and mounted

the land did we see that the fish was in the jaws of a vast onyx serpent that soon coiled protectively about its meal. It was long after midnight, the baskets getting full and all of us exhausted. Pa was running the five-horse Evinrude at the back of the boat, and every so often he’d pull over, cut the light and motor, and take a silent smoke break in the dark. It all happened very quickly. We were sitting against the bank waiting on Pa to finish a Camel when we heard a thump, and then some giant, scaly, slimy thing was among us, thrashing and rolling and flopping in the bottom of the boat, surely the King of All Cottonmouths, come to claim us at last. Worst of all, we were using that battery-powered spotlight and when the beast jumped in, it knocked the clip off the battery. So there we were, in Jurassic Park, in the pitch dark, on the nastiest, snakiest slough you can imagine, five hard miles from civilization, fighting a giant, wet, scaly sea monster that had invaded a 14-foot flat bottom boat. Roger, bellowing like a man fighting gremlins in a dream, brandished a shorty boat paddle and soon reduced it to splinters. Ryan, who had been doing the gigging from the front seat, stood up with his toes on the front lip of the boat, then went to screaming and stabbing at our feet in the dark with the barbed gig. For perhaps 30 seconds, wailing, bug-eyed terror reigned. Between the dark and the scaly, muscular thing in the bottom of the boat and the gig and the fear of tumping over into the water with all the snakes, it might have been the bar-none most terrifying moment of The Observer’s life. And that’s saying something. It wasn’t until Pa dad got a flashlight out of his pocket that we realized it was a gatdamn fish, one of those giant Asian carp. It has grown to whalelike proportions in The Observer’s mind over the years, but we do know that — for a reason that only made sense to us at 16 — we took it home and put it in Ma’s clawfoot bathtub, and the nose touched one end and the tail touched the other. That’s a lot of fish. Ah, memories. So long ago. Amazing where we’ve been. Amazing we survived. Amazing what you can forget, and how lovely it is to discover what you have forgotten again. www.arktimes.com

Catholic Church on McCullough resignation Mount St. Mary Academy has limited its public comments on the recent departure of English teacher Tippi McCullough to a brief statement by president and CEO Karen Flake. McCullough was forced to resign by Principal Diane Wolfe because she married her partner, Barbara Mariani, in New Mexico, where same-sex marriage is legal. Wolfe, McCullough said, cited Catholic church teaching and a contract “morals” clause. McCullough said her relationship was known to Wolfe, but MALONE publicly entering legal matrimony was cited as the reason the issue was forced. Critics of the decision have asked whether the school enforced the clause against, for example, teachers who used birth control pills. The Times has been provided by an anonymous source a copy of remarks made to Mount St. Mary staff recently by Msgr. Francis I. Malone, pastor of Christ the King Catholic Church, which sends many students to Mount St. Mary, where he once taught. He related the bishop’s feelings to the staff as well as reporting to staff on conversations he’d had with St. Mary students in religion classes. He said he was asked repeatedly by students why the action was taken since the couple was known to live together and he also said he was repeatedly asked for “clarification” of what Pope Francis said about homosexuality. Malone emphasized, among other points, the difference in public and private actions. He said most of his staff of 70 women at Christ the King are women and in child-bearing years, “but they’re all not spitting out babies.” He said the likelihood that some used artificial contraception was probably high. “But it’s none of my business ... we don’t police bedrooms.” But he added, if there was a public meeting, “and I found out that in my absence that one of these teachers got up and publicly said, ‘You know what? The church’s teaching about contraceptives is a bunch of hooey. I don’t believe it, my husband and I have been practicing artificial contraception for years, he has CONTINUED ON PAGE 11 10

Legislators seek stronger protection of water supplies But they’re powerless in the face of federal authority. BY ELIZABETH MCGOWAN

S

tate legislators leery of lax federal oversight of oil pipelines have attempted to beef up safety standards to try to prevent another disastrous spill in their own backyard. They’re aware, however, that their efforts are largely symbolic. That’s because, in most instances, a state statute cannot infringe on the federal government’s constitutional authority to set and enforce rules about petroleum pipelines. SPECIAL But for local lawREPORT makers trying to calm constituent fears after a 65-year-old pipeline burst in Mayflower, going it alone seemed the only option in an environment where the U.S. Congress and federal regulators seem incapable of strengthening rules that pipeline safety advocates perceive as weak and ineffective. The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) regulates most of the country’s liquid fuel pipelines. That includes ExxonMobil’s beleaguered Pegasus pipeline, which stretches 850 miles across four states from Patoka, Ill., to Nederland, Texas. Earlier this year PHMSA’s top pipeline safety official, Jeffrey Wiese, said the regulatory process he oversees is “kind of dying.” He announced that his agency is creating a YouTube channel to persuade industry to voluntarily improve safety at a time when it can take up to three years to issue a new regulation. Arkansas passed what amounts to an advisory law in April, barely a month after at least 210,000 gallons of Canadian heavy tar sands crude belched

from the Pegasus into Mayflower’s Northwoods subdivision on March 29. That calamity was an eye-opener about how poorly operators and regulators have monitored and maintained the nation’s aging and vulnerable pipeline network.

The three-page law “encourages” but does not force petroleum pipeline companies to take a series of safety measures, which are stricter than the federal government’s, on lines that cross watersheds that supply drinking water. CONTINUED ON PAGE 12

ed.” Their new colors, seen below, are Travs red, majestic maroon, stone gray and swamp black. They’re also now the first minor league team to have their own variety of camouflage. It’s called “Swamp Camo” and includes cypress trees, sage grass and the new logo hidden amidst the camouflage. But the organization isn’t quite ready to debut Swamp Camo to the public, according to General Manager Paul Allen. Also yet to be revealed is the new mascot. Shelly, the team’s buck-toothed, floppy-eared mascot that you might be surprised to learn was a horse (moose and donkey were our best guess) retired after the end of last season after 17 years. Allen said the new mascot, described by the Travs as “a legendary creature, an omen known to bringing good luck,” will be announced closer to the beginning of next season. Considering that the new logo prominently features a horse and the old mascot was a horse, the smart money on the new mascot is that it too is a horse. Allen’s response? “Quite possible.” Then again, Brandiose, the San Diego design firm that led the Travs’ rebranding effort did come up with the logos for the Richmond Flying Squirrels and Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs, so maybe the firm will convince the Travs to get wacky.

INSIDER, CONT. no problem with it and there’s nothing wrong with it,’ that’s her last day on the job.” He said that would be publicly espousing a teaching contradicting the church while a representative of the church. “So there’s a difference in those things that are public and those that are private and I think that’s what the pope was saying as well.” Malone told school staff that in 23 class meetings with Mount St. Mary students, “With only two exceptions the girls were respectful.” He said he’d asked that they not ask subjective questions about McCullough “because I don’t know her. However, I did tell them that she must be an extraordinary teacher because everyone — and I mean everyone — from administration to faculty to students have said that about her. I told the girls that this is another one of the reasons why I think there is hurt, because there’s a situation where there are absolutely no winners.” He said he was surprised that a junior student “who was clearly very angry asked a question on what was really faulty research that she had done on Biblical translations. ... The point she wanted to make was that the translations of the Bible were unreliable and who are we to say that the Bible is a truthful source for teaching. ... At the end of the class, she slammed her book shut and proclaimed, ‘This is why I will not raise my children Catholic.’ While there may be others who feel as she does, she was a standout in terms of disrespect.” Generally, he said, “some girls are angry, some are hurt, most are confused and some appeared indifferent.” The story is now “yesterday’s news,” he said. “I pointed this out to the girls as an example that the media is not the least bit concerned about them. Only a topic that was hot for a few days and that one lesson they can learn in life is that the media rarely get it right and do not care about people’s feelings nor protect their privacy ... . The ones that really care about these students and who care about you are sitting in this room.” To voice support for the school “is not to demonize Tippi,” he said. “I don’t know her. I can only go on what virtually everyone has said about her teaching skills and character and heart, what she and her partner said publicly, things that were aired locally and nationally.

WATER SUPPLIES, CONT. The bill’s goal is to compel companies to detect ruptures rapidly so they can speed up response time. It encourages pipeline operators to install cut-off valves that automatically sense lower flow in a pipeline and that can be automatically and manually shut off on either side of a river, stream, lake or reservoir. It also asks operators to provide training and funding for emergency responders. In addition, the law calls for operators to identify the chemical composition of oil flowing through a pipeline; remove above-ground pipeline crossings, install additional valves and valve controls; and create a risk mitigation and response plan that includes quarterly visual inspections of all pipelines. Reps. John Edwards, a Democrat of Little Rock, and co-sponsor Andy Davis, a Republican also of Little Rock, shepherded the pipeline safety bill through the Arkansas General Assembly. Edwards said he knew he had to tread carefully with the language in the bipartisan legislation because states can’t dictate pipeline safety. Simply put, PHMSA and pipeline operators can ignore local laws that try to pre-empt or override federal authority. PHMSA spokesman Damon Hill told InsideClimate News that the Arkansas law wouldn’t conflict with federal regulations because it “encourages” but doesn’t “require” stricter safety standards.

400,000 customers in and around Little Rock. The name of the law, “An Act to Improve Economic Opportunities in Arkansas by Protecting the EDWARDS Water Resources of the State” reflects his effort to attract votes among fellow legislators worried about the havoc a broken pipeline could cause if water were compromised. “For me, it goes back to the point that moral authority has no boundaries,” Edwards said about his decision to pursue legislation — even though pipeline operators in Arkansas could choose to ignore it. “As an elected official, you have an obligation to speak out and do what you can with something that impacts everyone. Clean, safe drinking water is one of those issues.” About 1,805 miles of the nation’s 194,157 miles of liquid fuel pipelines run through Arkansas. Exxon spokesman Aaron Stryk did not say whether the company would follow the Arkansas law. Instead, he said in an e-mail that “our commitment to operating in an environmentally responsible manner is anchored in our Environment Policy, which fosters appropriate operating practices and training, and requires our facilities to be designed, operated and managed with the goal of preventing environmental incidents.” Anthony Swift, an attorney at the Natural Resources Defense Council, a nonprofit advocacy organization, lauded Edwards for trying to send a message to the U.S. Congress and PHMSA about the current shortcomings of pipeline safety.

Edwards: Clean Water Can’t Be Compromised The Mayflower spill spurred Edwards into action because the Pegasus broke so close to Lake Maumelle, a drinking water source that serves

Counties and states can’t just throw up their hands and say they are helpless, said Swift, who has spent years studying pipeline safety issues. It’s incumbent on state officials to represent their constituents’ needs so federal regulators and the pipeline industry aren’t the only representatives at the table, he added. “When we say that all politics is local, it’s true,” he said. “If local lawmakers don’t push their federal lawmakers to change the system, the system is not going to change.”

South Dakota County Strikes Out While PHMSA sets oil pipeline safety via federal standards, local legislators are allowed to address pipeline siting and spill response issues without superseding federal powers. That means they can have a say on where a pipeline is buried and on what type of post-spill cleanup response is expected. But they cannot demand that pipeline operators lower the pressure on their lines, conduct more inspections, construct their pipelines with thicker steel or add sensors that detect spills because those safety measures are federally regulated. Local legislators in South Dakota who tried to propose an ordinance that went beyond federal pipeline siting and spill response found out just how large a hammer PHMSA can yield. More than five years ago, worries about the proposed Keystone XL pipeline prompted the Spink County Commission in South Dakota to direct its volunteer zoning board to design an ordinance just in case an oil pipeline was ever constructed in the county.

Neither the first Keystone pipeline, completed in 2010, nor Keystone XL — now in its fifth year of review — would pass through Spink County, an agriculture-dependent area in the northeastern corner of the state near the Minnesota border. However, the first Keystone came within about two miles of the county’s eastern border and commissioners wanted to be proactive. They were aware that pipeline construction had caused tension with nearby landowners and they also were concerned that a pipeline spill could compromise the drinking water the rural district draws from the Missouri River. Members of the five-member zoning board, headed by one of the county commissioners, modeled their measure on a similar ordinance passed in Union County, which is in far southeastern South Dakota where Iowa and Nebraska come together, then-zoning board member Ed Fischbach said in an interview. The ordinance called on operators to bury pipelines at least 1,000 feet from residences and farms, and to establish a trust fund to reimburse landowners for spill expenses. Those are clearly pipeline siting and spill response issues. However, it also required pipeline operators to use thicker steel when constructing lines near water sources. That latter criterion raised a red flag because only federal regulators can dictate what type of steel an operator uses. As required by county procedures, the board voted on the measure twice — approving it unanimously both times — before presenting it to the commission for a final vote in 2009. “And that’s when everybody came out of the woodwork to kill it,” Fischbach said.

WATER SUPPLIES, CONT. Attorneys from PHMSA, TransCanada, the state Public Utilities Commission and elsewhere told the Spink County commissioners they were setting themselves up for a lawsuit because they would be violating federal law by approving such an ordinance. The five-member commission, including the commissioner who served on the zoning board, rejected the ordinance unanimously. And that wasn’t the end of it. A few months later, the county attorney informed the entire board via letter that it would be disbanded by the end of the year because the commissioners would be taking over all zoning duties. “We were upset and frustrated but it wasn’t a surprise,” Fischbach said about the board being dismantled. “We talked about it afterward and none of us regretted what we did on the ordinance. We’d had the commission’s blessing.” At least two states, Washington and Nebraska, have successfully legislated pipeline safety measures that PHMSA hasn’t challenged. Washington has initiated rules calling for spill response plans that are more rigorous and thorough than what PHMSA requires. And, the Nebraska legislature tackled the siting issue in 2011. TransCanada’s proposed Keystone XL alarmed landowners, environmentalists, farmers and ranchers because it was slated to traverse the Ogallala Aquifer, a crucial water source in the Great Plains. Nebraska legislators addressed those fears by passing what’s called the Major Oil Pipeline Siting Act. It gives Nebraska’s Public Service Commission (PSC) the authority to site oil pipelines within the state. The catch is that Nebraska’s law applies solely to future oil pipelines, not the controversial Keystone XL. A provision in an earlier version of the bill that had included the Keystone XL was dropped when TransCanada agreed to reroute the pipeline out of a network of ecologically sensitive grasslands called the Sandhills. But that hasn’t soothed Nebraskans’ concerns. TransCanada selected a new route for the pipeline that avoids the heart of the Sandhills. However, some 55 miles of the pipeline would still run through Holt County. That region sits above the aquifer and is especially vulnerable to oil spills due to its permeable soils and high water table.

Edwards: Exxon ‘Caught a Break’ Edwards said the pipeline rupture

in Mayflower motivated him to act because “the biggest enemy of clean water is apathy.” He consulted civil engineers while writing his bill to make sure his demands were reasonable. “We need to have people at all levels of government stand up and say that this is important to us,” Edwards said. He’s convinced Exxon “caught a break with that break” because even though the rupture forced 22 families to evacuate from the Northwoods subdivision, the location was accessible to cleanup crews. It was eight pipeline miles away from Lake Maumelle, the dammed reservoir that Central Arkansas Water counts on to serve its 400,000 customers. A rupture along the 13.5 miles of the Pegasus that traverse the rugged and isolated northern edge of the lake would have been a “total catastrophe,” he said. A study of the pipeline’s route by the Arkansas Department of Health revealed that the line traverses through 18 of the state’s drinking water sources. About 750,000 of the 2.9 million people who call the state home rely on that water. That’s about one-fourth of the state’s population.” Exxon officials can look at you with a straight face and say that to the best of our knowledge we were following the federal guidelines, but again I don’t think that’s enough when you’re talking about a drinking water supply,” said Edwards. “I wanted to do something more than just a study so I did the best I could with the framework I had to work with.” Stryk, the Exxon spokesman, said the company’s integrity management program for oil pipelines is “consistent with the requirements outlined by the federal regulators.” He added that inspections, testing and routine maintenance of pipelines go beyond federal regulatory requirements. However, a report by InsideClimate News found that Exxon knew that the 1940s-era Pegasus had manufacturing defects. Faulty welds allowed crude oil to spew from the pipeline in that Good Friday afternoon in Arkansas. Yet Exxon added new stresses by pumping more and heavier oil — tar sands crude — through the line. Swift, the NRDC attorney, said the public is paying attention to the questionable state of the nation’s oil pipeline system. People are alarmed by the mixed messages that federal regulators are sending by claiming to be in charge but then not following up with more stringent pipeline safety regulations.

October 14, 2013 RE: Act 1099 of 2013, an Act to Prohibit the Use of E-Cigarettes on Public School Property; and for Other Purposes (Arkansas Code 6-21-609)

Attention Public School District Administrators: The Coalition for a Tobacco Free Arkansas is sending this letter to inform you of a very important law impacting all public school districts across Arkansas. Act 1099 was passed during the 2013 Arkansas General Assembly. The law prohibits the use of e-cigarettes on property owned or leased by a public school or public charter school. It goes further to prohibit the use of e-cigarettes in or on any personal property, including school buses owned or leased by the district, whether it be a traditional public school or a public charter. This includes school or district vehicles, annexes, portable classrooms, etc. In other words any personal property owned by the district, that is not considered real property but may house or be utilized to educate or to transport students for the school. What Are E-Cigarettes? E-Cigarettes are defined in the statute as any “electronic oral device” that provides a vapor of nicotine or another substance, used to simulate smoking, and any device having a heating element, battery or electronic circuit which works in combination with liquid nicotine delivery. Posting Requirements 6-21-609 (c) All public and charter school districts are required to post a copy of the statute, conspicuously, at every entrance to each building owned or leased by the school, including any school bus utilized to transport students. PUNISHMENT 6-21-609 (d) While there is no criminal penalty for violation of this act; persons who commit a violation shall have a fine of not less than $10.00 not more than $100.00 assessed. Effective Date Act 1099 went into effect August 16, 2013. We hope this information is helpful to you as you strive to keep your district in compliance with all state mandates relative to public and charter schools.

Oil spills in Mayflower and the Kalamazoo River in Michigan in 2010 could have been avoided or much less disastrous if it weren’t for such lax oversight, he said. In Michigan, for instance, Enbridge Inc. did not repair known defects on the line and did not conduct adequate safety inspections. As well, its leak detection system failed to perform adequately. “PHMSA is monopolizing space with pipeline safety standards and for whatever reason it is not being particularly effective in that role,” Swift said. “It’s a regulatory environment where the fox is guarding the chicken coop.” “The agency argues that it doesn’t have teeth but the agency doesn’t use the enforcement power it has,” he said, adding that PHMSA also has the power to shore up its shortcomings by writing new regulations. “Other federal agencies are getting regulations out all of the time.” Edwards said three distinct situations influenced his advocacy for clean, safe drinking water. First, President Clinton, an Arkansas native, appointed Edwards to a position with a branch of the U.S. Department of Agriculture tasked with funding drinking water systems in rural regions. And second and third, he was dispatched twice with his Arkansas National Guard unit to some alarming circumstances. For a year in Iraq, beginning in 2004, everybody subsisted on bottled water because potable water wasn’t available. In 2005, while helping evacuate the convention center after Hurricane Katrina crippled New Orleans, he realized “we were surrounded by water but none of it was fit to drink.” This country has made some remarkable engineering advances, but a replacement for water isn’t one of them, said Edwards, adding that he felt fortunate to grow up in Tomberlin, a tiny rural community at the edge of the Arkansas Delta with suitable drinking water infrastructure. “It doesn’t matter how rich you are or how poor you are,” he said. “If you don’t have water or if you have bad water, you’re in a world of hurt.”

He confirmed that view last year when he remarked, “I’ve become less conservative since the Republican Party started becoming goofy.” Republican legislatures and governors have been enacting the photo ID laws across the South and Midwest, including Arkansas this year, as a way of suppressing the votes of groups that are least likely to have driver licenses and most likely to vote Democratic — minorities, the poor and the disabled and elderly. Vote suppression was only a Democrat theory back then and Posner said two of the three judges just accepted the Republican premise that voters were committing widespread fraud by pretending to be someone else and voting for them. It has become unmistakably clear, Posner said, that the design is simply to suppress votes, not to check election fraud. The Supreme Court upheld Posner, 5 to 4. The now retired Justice Stevens, who wrote that opinion, too, said last week that given the weak factual record of the Indiana case he had to uphold Posner’s ruling but that historically the dissenters at both levels and the reformed Posner were right. Preventing vote fraud is supposed to be the compelling government interest that allows it to impinge upon people’s right to vote. The Republican chief justice, John Roberts, wrote in a concurring opinion that while it might be true there was no record of people impersonating other voters it must surely go on. In other words, when you aren’t given facts to support you, supply them yourself. The handicap of appellate jurisprudence is that reviewing judges cannot search for the essential facts in a case but must rely on the trial court to have developed them. The distinction of the political judiciary of the past 25 years, illustrated from Bush v. Gore to the voter ID laws, is that if you haven’t been given facts that are suitable to the cause, imagine them.

THE

2ND DISTRICT POST-GRIFFIN It’s shaping up to be a real horserace in 2014. BY LESLIE NEWELL PEACOCK

R

ichard Nixon once said, “I am not a crook.” Tim Griffin said, “I am not a zookeeper.” Griffin is leaving Washington, though on his own terms, not unceremoniously like Nixon. And unlike Nixon, his tricks (and those played on his behalf) came before he held office, not during. The 2nd District congressman’s zookeeping reference came in a talk at the Clinton School in May 2007. He’d just resigned as interim U.S. attorney after the publication of an article about Griffin’s involvement in GOP caging — disqualifying likely Democratic voters who’ve moved from their registered addresses — in 2004 in Florida. Asked about it, Griffin said he said he didn’t know

what caging was. That he had to look it up. C’mon. The protege of Bush White House trickster extraordinare Karl Rove didn’t know what caging was? Caging was one thing. The more immediate problem Griffin faced was how he’d gotten the U.S. attorney job — through machinations by the Justice Department, finagling that threw U.S. Attorney Bud Cummins under the bus so Griffin could be installed. Griffin wept during the talk at the school. He said public service “was not worth” the public scrutiny he’d come under and the cost to his family. He didn’t know how long-term public servants could do it. He said he and his wife had not been able to enjoy the news that she was pregnant.

More bad press was to come: The DOJ’s report a year later confirming that Cummins had been removed not for poor performance but to make way for Griffin. Emails that contradicted the DOJ’s earlier assertion that Karl Rove had not been involved. It was at his direction that Griffin got a job that would launch his political career. Then, in 2008, a swarthy Muslim socialist was elected president — or that’s how a previously quiet and shockingly large faction of American society saw it. The wave of anti-Obama feeling in Arkansas in 2010 took that baggage and swept it to sea and Griffin into Congress representing the state’s 2nd District. It did not hurt that his Democratic opponent was Joyce Elliott, female, liberal, African American. CONTINUED ON PAGE 18 www.arktimes.com

Griffin was re-elected in 2012, his issues the stymied Keystone XL Pipeline and the iniquities of the Affordable Care Act. That his popularity had declined a bit — but only a bit — was illustrated in his loss of Pulaski County to Herb Rule, who’d been arrested for DWI during the campaign and whose campaign didn’t show much verve, by 10,351 votes. Griffin was rewarded with a seat on the House Ways and Means Committee. There have been no surprises in his voting record — he’s voted the party line to reduce food stamp funding, taken an anti-abortion stand, voted against reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act. He is just barely to the left of extremist 4th District Congressman Tom Cotton. Griffin says he is most proud of his bill that “would have given a legal foundation to the president’s delay of the employer mandate” (Griffin agreed with the president’s action, but not his decision to do it without congressional approval) and of Ways and Means’ efforts to lower taxes. But after a difficult fall, there will be no 2014 race for Griffin. He and fellow House Republicans decided it was better to shutter the government for 16 days than accept Obamacare as the law of the land. During the House-Senate stand-

off, Griffin — a political animal and not a policy wonk — was roundly scorned for his tweet from the House cloakroom when gunshots were heard outside the Capitol: “Stop the violent rhetoric President Obama, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi.#Disgusting.” (As it turned out, the populace had not been driven to storm the Capitol by crazed liberal rabble-rousers. A mentally ill woman had tried to ram the gates of the White House and was fleeing police. Griffin didn’t apologize, but he did remove the tweet from his Twitter feed.) The House took its resistance to Obamacare to the brink, and for a while it appeared the teaparty wing of the Republican Party in the House might demand worse, letting the country go into default on its borrowing. National polling showed the October grandstanding was wildly unpopular with people who had to work for a living, no matter which party held their allegiance. Standard & Poor’s estimated the shutdown cost the American economy $24 billion. Republican candidates across the country looked to be in trouble. In Arkansas, Democratic polling showed voters

favored dumping Griffin 49 to 44 percent. Griffin was going to have to run against a popular mayor rather than a single-malt-sipping opponent. He may not have coasted to a win. Griffin said that none of that mattered. Once again, it was the personal cost of public service that was rubbing Griffin the wrong way. He announced that it was time for him to quit sleeping on his office couch and return to his Heights manor in Arkansas to be with his wife and two young children. Maybe he’ll return to “making the bullets” for Republican war rooms, as he described his oppo research job in the BBC’s “Digging the Dirt” program in 2000. With 14 months still left in office, he says he has no definite plans. He’ll surely be a powerful force in the state GOP. ◆◆◆ As of this writing, former North Little Rock Mayor Pat Hays is the only Democratic candidate for the 2nd District seat. He has the state party’s support, so it’s unlikely he’ll have opposition in the primary. CONTINUED ON PAGE 20

be because he’d campaigned on the Keystone pipeline issue and he’d received thousands of dollars from the Exxon PAC. But it didn’t take long for him to pick up on constituent anger, and since the March spill he has made trips to Mayflower to meet with residents, introduced a House Resolution (that was referred to committee) to give Mayflower residents a tax break on whatever compensation they received from Exxon, and returned this year’s $2,500 contribution from Exxon. He has gone so far as to express “frustration” with Exxon on the company’s refusal to release its own studies of why the spill occurred, and has called on Exxon to move the pipeline away from Little Rock’s water supply, Lake Maumelle. Still, Griffin’s support to move Canadian crude in a massive pipeline across the country has never wavered. Has that position diluted his support among the people of Faulkner County? Has he done enough? Republican candidates will find out.

Republican successor? Our national attention deficit disorder means that the shutdown may largely be forgotten by the time the 2014 election rolls around. But what won’t be forgotten — in Faulkner County at least — is the ExxonMobil oil spill that is an ongoing threat to land and water in Mayflower and the suffering of residents who’ve lost their homes and complain of lingering health

effects because of oil contamination. A month after the Mayflower spill, Griffin issued a news release that promised to get answers on why the pipeline burst but praised Exxon for its work in the cleanup and defended the Keystone XL Pipeline that will transport heavy Canadian crude across the U.S. to be shipped abroad. If Griffin was tone deaf at first, it could

Jay Barth, a professor of political science at Hendrix College (where he was an undergraduate with Griffin in the 1980s), wrote in a column for the Arkansas Times that Griffin would likely have won reelection, though the contest would have been “messy.” Griffin’s strength was his ability, Barth said in a recent interview, to bridge the gap between the divided Republican Party. While he presented himself as a traditional Republican, “I do think he used a lot of rhetoric through social media to send signals to tea party activists that he was one of them,” Barth said.

Hays, who is using his complete, rather patriotic, name — Patrick Henry Hays — in his campaign, promises to bridge the gap between Democrats and Republicans. The first thing he’ll do in D.C., he said, is seek out a Republican congressman and make friends with him. Hays is stressing his 24 years in nonpartisan city government as his strength. His frequently repeated line: Garbage isn’t Democratic and crime isn’t Republican but nonpartisan problems that need to be addressed. He says mayors know how to work with their aldermen and city directors to get things done, while “inside the beltway they argue and call each other names.” Hays, who was considering a political race of some sort, was recruited for the 2nd District race by Arkansas Democratic Party chair Vince Insalaco, a longtime friend and supporter of Hays. In an interview, Hays said the government shutdown fueled his “anger, frustration, disappointment” over the “damage it did to cities and folks all over the country.” Democratic polling mid-shutdown showed Griffin trailing Hays. It was already known that he was going to announce for the seat before the surprise announcement by Griffin, who’d already raised $500,000, that he would not seek re-election. Imagine Hays’ delight at Griffin’s news. Hays said the Republican refusal to fund the government shows “a lack of concern for the American people,” including schoolchildren cut off from food programs, furloughed workers, folks fearful they wouldn’t see their Social Security checks. “I don’t think I’m a Pollyanna,” Hays said about the possibility of reaching across the aisle. “I can’t believe the grandpas up there don’t love their grandchildren like I do” and aren’t thinking about the future. Like Republicans, he wouldn’t have voted for the Affordable Care Act “as enacted,” Hays says, but he said “an overhaul of our health care system is needed” and Obamacare’s provisions of coverage for persons with pre-existing conditions and its reimbursements to hospitals in rural areas are good policy. Hays likes to cite the Patrick Henry Hays Senior Center as one of his accomplishments, but the funding issues he would tackle as congressman in D.C. are of far greater magnitude. Besides his position on health care and his desire that the U.S. spend less abroad than at home — he expressed frustration “when I see the dollars that have gone to Iraq and I’m trying to find a $100,000 to build a trail, when our interstate sys-

tem is clogged” — Hays is sticking to the take-a-mayor-to-Washington theme of bipartisan cooperation. His campaign is “to really let people know I’m running for mayor of the district. I’m going to take a little bit of common sense to Washington and export 24 years of working with people not caring whether they are Democrats or Republicans.” ◆◆◆ Ann Clemmer, the outgoing state representative from Benton, praised Griffin for his “common sense” leadership in the House Oct. 30 when she announced her candidacy for the Republican nomination to succeed him. But Clemmer promptly declared that had she been in Congress in the run-up to the shutdown, she would have advised her “colleagues not to start a fight” they could not win and she decried “political gamesmanship.” That’s called having it both ways, which Griffin also sought to do over the Oct. 1-16 shutdown. In August, Griffin was one of 80 Republicans who signed a letter to House Speaker John Boehner urging him to defund Obamacare in “any relevant appropriations bills brought CONTINUED ON PAGE 22

to the House floor, including any continuing appropriations bills.” During an October teleconference with random Arkansas voters, he maintained he “never wanted a shutdown.” He said the Democrats, by not acting to undo a law that had been in place for four years and been declared constitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court, were to blame for bringing the government to a halt. In a caller poll, he asked listeners to vote on whether the president and Congress should negotiate a way to open the government or whether “we should pass whatever the president wants.” Clemmer has positioned herself as the states’ rights candidate, saying Arkansas was “constrained by the federal government” from finding its own solutions to social problems and that “we’ve given up too much of our power and money” to the government. She also reminded voters of her social bonafides, saying she was proud to carry the antiabortion bills the legislature passed last session and proud to vote to override Gov. Mike Beebe’s vetoes of them, and her disenfranchisement bonafides, bragging on the voter I.D. bills Republicans passed. She wants to repeal Obamacare “if it isn’t working.” Of all the Republican candidates out there, political scientist Barth thinks, Clemmer “may come closest” to resembling Griffin, at least in how she’ll vote.

which bans banks from serving as creditors and investment advisors. His dislike of the Affordable Care Act sounds bankable — depending on how the law plays out, which will be crucial to 2014 campaigns. Hill did not respond to requests for an interview with the Times, but to judge where he falls on the political spectrum, it might be instructive to note that he spoke at a rally for the Koch-brothers-founded Americans for Prosperity a couple of years ago along with Asa Hutchinson, who was quoted “nudging” Hill into the 2nd District race. So, he’s no centrist. But, political scientist Barth says, “There’s going to be some tea party folks who’ll ask if he’s ‘one of us’.” Both Hill and Clemmer abandoned state races to do battle for the Republican nomination. Clemmer was going to challenge incumbent State Sen. Jeremy Hutchinson in the Republican primary for the District 22 seat. Hill had announced he would make a race for the District 35 (Riverdale, the Heights and Pinnacle Valley) seat currently held by term-limited state Rep. John Edwards. Conrad Reynolds of Conway, the third Republican in the race, made an unsuccessful run for the U.S. Senate in 2010 campaigning on repeal of the 16th amendment and replacing the federal income tax with a national sales tax. He did not return a call from the Times.

Little Rock banker French Hill out-pedigreed Tim Griffin when he announced Oct. 29 his candidacy for the Republican nomination: He described himself as a ninth-generation Arkansan, in contrast to the five generations Griffin claims. Maybe that’s why his first name is French. Nor does he ride a dirt bike — one of Griffin’s favorite pastimes — so he’s not exactly a populist type, though he touts his fishing and hunting on social media. Hill is the founder of Delta Trust and Banking Corp. and has worked in Washington, as a legislative aide to the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, House and Urban Affairs in the early 1980s and later as senior economic policy advisor to President George H.W. Bush and deputy assistant secretary to the Treasury. Not surprisingly, Hill wants to repeal Obamacare, which he described as “jobskilling,” and the Dodd-Frank legislation. Stumping on the repeal of DoddFrank, the Wall Street reform law, is unlikely to ignite the passions of voters in, say, Perry County. Bankers object to the bill because of the “Volcker Rule,”

Republican strategist Clint Reed says the 2nd District is going to be “one of the most competitive congressional districts in the country,” and if Election Day brings out Democrats in greater number, the election will have “greater tentacles than the 2nd District race,” impacting the governor and legislative contests. (Griffin’s retirement has already had an effect, with Hill and Clemmer abandoning legislative races). The 2nd District has traditionally been a battleground district, with heavily Democratic Pulaski County balanced by increasingly Republican surrounding counties. (Ouachita Baptist University political scientist Hal Bass calls it “bipolar.”) Griffin will play a “very hands-on role in making sure the 2nd District remains in Republican hands,” Reed believes. (He added that Griffin had told him “unequivocally” that he was not running for governor, as some speculated.) But without him, Reed said, outside Republican groups won’t be channeling dollars to Arkansas the way they would if Griffin were running again.

“Today I call it a 50-50 district. I really believe that both parties have the opportunity to win this seat,” Reed said. “But it’s a long way from even the filing period” and knowing who the final candidates will be. Whoever can convince the voters that they know a way to fix what everyone can agree is a “broken Congress,” as Reed put it, will have the better shot. ◆◆◆ Griffin finally decided to answer a request for an interview last Friday, though his aide Matt Wolking had responded to the request by telling this reporter that Griffin’s office didn’t take her employer “very seriously.” The Times’ Arkansas Blog has been hard on Griffin, who unlike some Republicans seeks no common ground with those he disagrees with politically. Griffin nevertheless gets high marks for being approachable to constituents, giving out his cell number at speeches and so forth. He was midride on his Harley-Davidson in the Heights when he stopped to call. The congressman said he loves his

job in D.C. and his decision not to make a third run was not taken lightly. He knew Hays was considering entering the race, he said, and he thought it only right to make his decision now so Republican hopefuls could prepare. His children cast the deciding vote. He missed them desperately. Griffin said his son John, 3, who has never celebrated a birthday with his dad, had begun to ask him every time he left the house if he was coming back. Griffin said he and his wife, Elizabeth, began some time ago to debate whether he should stay in office another three years. Griffin’s daughter, Mary Katherine, is 6. “It dawned on me how fast my daughter was growing up and when I added three to six and got nine. ...” Griffin doesn’t agree with Reed’s 50-50 chances for Democrats in the 2nd District. “This district has been right of center for years. ... I think 2014 will be a great year for conservatives and the Republican Party.” He believes he’s leaving it in safe hands. “French or Ann or Conrad or whoever the nominee is will win handily,” Griffin predicted, “but they’re going to have to work.”

was always called a weirdo,” Adrian Tillman, aka 607, said. “I was always too hood for the weird people. and I was always too weird for the hood people.” That’s as good a manifesto as any for 607’s new album, “Nerd from the Hood,” released on Halloween, the 39th album since 2000 for the most prolific (and many would argue the best) rapper in Little Rock. The 17 tracks — available for download (for free or pay what you want) at 607’s bandcamp page, iam607.com — are punchy, literate and stylistically diverse. The most provocative song, “Kill Crooked Cops” is highly topical (more on that in a minute) but the album as a whole keeps circling back to the personal. Exploring questions of identity is rich ground for an artist as singular as 607. “I always give people glimpses at me and who I am, but I wanted to give them a more in-depth look at how I perceive myself, and what I think my role is in society and people like me,” Tillman said. On the album’s title track, he raps, “Some of y’all don’t understand my energy/I told the hood it couldn’t have my identity.” His experiences growing up poor, Tillman said, are a vital and important part of who he is, but don’t define him. “I wanted to shed light on people like me,” he said. “People who are from the hood but we’re not necessarily gangsters. We’re still heavy… . After music started selling millions of copies and the corporations got ahold of it, they really started only pushing urban people to be one thing. Like you need to be a gangster to have music out or you need to do this to have music out. The more eclectic people started getting neglected.” This album, and the entire career of 607, might be thought of as a primal scream against being one thing. As Tillman yells repeatedly on “Nerd from the Hood,” “You can’t put me in a box!” He picks up musical styles and personas as the the mood strikes him. This is the guy who once “outsourced” himself, as he put it, travelling across the world to bring rap music to Russia. The guy who took a break from dominating the hip-hop nightlife to learn violin and cello. He raps “if I’m going to have dinner with God/I have to have breakfast with astronauts” and “I need a hearse for all the people I’m about to murder” on the same song, and both lines seem perfect and inevitable. They are both unmistakably him. It’s tempting to think of him as self-consciously iconoclastic, but it seems more like he simply has a contrary nature that pushes his art in unpredictable, and often glorious, ways. “If music starts getting too serious then I’m going to be that guy making ridiculous music,” he said. “Everything has a place and a role. I’m all about balance, making sure everybody knows that rap music is not one thing. When I see that the balance is off, I know I’m an artist and I want to try to supply that balance.” CONTINUED ON PAGE 65

A&E NEWS WE TALKED RECENTLY TO BRAD MCCRAY, co-owner of Little Rock’s new nightspot Club Level, which had its grand opening Oct. 31. Level is in the old Blass building at 315 Main St. McCray said that crews employed by him and Level co-owner Steven Velek have been working since September to ready the 10,000-square-foot, two-story space, the former site of Montego Cafe, the Caribbean-themed restaurant, bar and club McCray opened with former partner Chris Bowen on Thanksgiving Day 2012. The club closed in September. Asked about the end of the business relationship with Bowen, McCray would only say the partnership didn’t work out. McCray said the decor for Level was designed with a “Las Vegas look” in mind, which included changing out all fixtures and furnishings, extensive repainting and remodeling, and the installation of a stateof-the-art light and sound system that will compliment the two-level club, with seating on the ground floor and the open dance floor below. McCray said Level has an unwritten dress code to keep things upscale, with tasteful club wear or professional attire preferred. In addition to drink specials, McCray said Level features a menu of “upscale pub fare” including beer-battered chicken, ribs, fresh guacamole and fresh hummus. The kitchen will be open until midnight each night. McCray hopes Level’s placement across the street from the newly-reopened Bruno’s Little Italy — which has often seen packed houses — will spark a little synergy between the two establishments and hopefully help spur a Main Street restaurant/club resurgence. “I think we’ll be able to compliment each other,” McCray said. “I’m sure some of our clientele will be different, but for the most part it’s people going out, heading downtown to check out the new Main Street, looking to spend some entertainment dollars. They can have dinner with them and come have drinks with us.”

North Carolina’s Avett Brothers have spent the last decade and change rising to the top of the heap of scruffy, earnest folk rock outfits with banjos and beautiful vocal harmonies. Brothers Scott and Seth Avett (banjoist and guitarist, respectively) formed the band back about the turn of the millennium with their buddy, “Bass-Playin’” Bob Crawford (bassist). The trio cut several albums of wide-eyed folkcraft and gentle harmonizing and banjo pluckery, touring the venues of this nation with tireless resolve. Before too long, they’d become quite popular, and ol’ Rick Rubin, producer of Slayer and Johnny Cash, signed the band and brought them under his wing (or perhaps into the warm recesses of his gigantic beard, which also would likely be beneficial to an aspiring young band). Now the dudes are playing big outdoor festivals and stadiums. RB

NIK TURNER

Various times. Faulkner County Library. Free.

8 p.m. Revolution. $8.

Comic book fans and gamers, y’all listen up now: You lot need to go ahead and collectively take off work, clear your calendars, cancel any appointments and otherwise unburden yourself of any obligations you might have had this weekend, because it’s time for ComiCon-Way. It’s gonna be three days of intense, geek-centric revelry. Some of the speakers and guests include featured guest Erik Larsen, co-founder of Image Comics; Joe Staton and Mike Curtis of “Dick Tracy” renown; fantasy illustrator R.K. Post; Sam de la Rosa of “Venom” and other titles, Tom Feister (“G.I.” Joe” and “Iron Man” among others) and many others. But there’s more: Trivia buffs? Y’all can flex your arcane comics knowledge at the trivia contest. Magic the Gathering? Aw, hell yeah you know it! Tournaments! Cosplay? Please, there’s gonna be so much Cosplay going on and so many people decked out in their finest duds that you’re not even going to know what to do. Check out the website for all of the pertinent info at ComiCon-Way.com. RB

Man, how rad is this? One of the founding members of utterly mind-exploding space rock pioneers Hawkwind (and as such, one of the guiding lights of the genre) will be performing right here in Little Rock City. Nik Turner helped guide the good ship Hawkwind during the band’s prime of 1969-1976 (and again from ’82-’84), playing skronky, free-jazz-inspired sax and writ-

ing or co-writing some of the band’s most memorable tunes. Any of you heavy music heads who’ve somehow avoided Hawkwind should remedy that situation right quick. Everything from the self-titled debut up to and including “Warrior on the Edge of Time” is absolutely essential proto-metal outer-reaches head-trip gonzo insanity. And Nik Turner was a key part of it. What an interesting dude. Even after he left the band he kept doing cool things, including 1978’s Egyptian mythology-informed

“Xtintoday,” which included key personnel from Gong and Hawkwind, notably Steve Hillage. Turner’s got a new album out this year, “Space Gypsy,” which carries on the tradition of tripped-out cosmic rock that he helped birth. Also, here’s this interesting note: On guitar is none other than Nicky Garratt of legendary British punk outfit U.K. Subs. Also on the bill at this all-ages show: Pallbearer, The Sound of the Mountain, Sumokem and Tropical Body. RB

often paying tribute to the figures who inspired him: Duke Ellington, Jelly Roll Morton, Thelonious Monk (check his “Alone with Three Giants” album for interpretations of those three legends). Jordan joined the trio in 2009. He has been noted for his versatility and is associate professor of jazz studies at Florida State University, where he and Roberts first met. Marsalis is the youngest of Ellis Marsalis’s sons. He was a founding member of Los Hombres Calientes, but left that band to play with Roberts. RB

KENNY ROGERS

8 p.m. El Dorado Municipal Auditorium. $30-$100.

Y’all, The Gambler himself, Kenny Rogers, will be coming to Arkansas this weekend, Saturday night at El Dorado Municipal Auditorium, to be all specific about it. Rogers is fresh off of releasing a new album, “You Can’t Make Old Friends,” and being inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. And he’s set to receive this week the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award at the CMAs. Oh, and before you start getting all snarky about the work he had done a few years ago, just know that yes, he knows. He told Anderson Cooper that “it was all for the sake of what I thought was looking better, and I’m not sure what I would look like if I hadn’t done it so I’m happy.” So just, you know, let’s all concentrate on the music, which is the thing that will live on forever anyways, right?

‘BEETHOVEN & BLUE JEANS’

8 p.m. Robinson Center Music Hall. $14-$53.

This weekend features what must be one of the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra’s best-loved annual traditions: “Beethoven & Blue Jeans,” which this year promises to be “a thoroughly Vien-

nese affair with sounds of court, nature, and even the city’s downtown clubs,” according to the ASO. The Beethoven piece for this season’s installment is his “Symphony No. 4 in B-flat Major, Op. 60.” Also in store will be Friedrich Gulda’s “Concerto for Cello and Wind Orchestra.” And making her debut with the ASO is renowned cellist Inbal Segev. The show

will be performed again Sunday at 3 p.m. Segev will also perform at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Clinton Presidential Center, performing Prokofiev’s “String Quartet No. 1 in B minor,” “Op. 50, Heitor VillaLobos’ Bachianas Brasileiras No. 1” and “George Enescu’s Octet in C Major, Op. 7” with members of the Arkansas Symphony.

Reynolds Performance Hall. Echols, who spent almost two decades in solitary confinement, will also teach a private class to UCA creative writing students that day as part of the school’s Artist in Residence program. It will be Echols’ first return to Arkansas since his release from Death Row in August 2011. Admission to the reading is free,

but you must have a ticket — available from the Reynolds Box Office on the UCA campus – and there’s a limit of two tickets per person. As of Monday of this week, a very limited number of tickets for the reading were still available, but we hear they’re going fast so you might want to call soon. Tickets may be ordered in advance by calling 501-450-3265 or 866-810-0012. A note before you go: all audience members will be scanned with a metal detector before entry, and no bags, backpacks, purses or video recording by audience members will be allowed inside the hall.

Dear Arkansans, It’s f lu season again, and every year we see some of the same concerns coming back around: the f lu shot gave me the f lu; the f lu is not very serious; f lu vaccines are dangerous; and there’s no real reason for me to worry about the f lu, just to name a few. The Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) wants to help set the record straight on these and some other myths about the f lu. We want to help provide you with all the resources you need to protect yourself and your family from the number eight cause of death in the country every year, the seasonal f lu. With that in mind, we have prepared this guide to better health during this year’s f lu season.

Gary Wheeler, MD

Seasonal influenza is a very serious illness, and an average of 23,600 people die every year of complications from the flu. No matter how healthy you are, you can catch the flu, because it is a very contagious respiratory virus. But some people face a much greater risk of the complications that lead to hospitalization and death. That’s why it is so important for everyone to get a flu shot this year and every year. If we can reduce the total number of cases of the flu in the community, we can protect those who are at great risk: the elderly, children under five (especially those under two), pregnant women, those with chronic conditions like heart disease, diabetes, lung disorders and certain other groups.

...an average of 23,600 people die every year of complications from the flu.

There is almost no medical reason not to get a flu shot—the benefits far outweigh any risks that are possible, and the vaccine is widely available. Your local ADH county health unit will have a supply for you and your family, and there are many other places that can also provide flu vaccine— big retailers, pharmacies and even grocery stores are now offering flu vaccine. I hope that you will spend some time improving your Flu IQ, and helping us Fight the Flu this year in Arkansas!

Is the FLU vaccine safe?

Over the years, hundreds of millions of people in the U.S. have safely received seasonal flu vaccines.

Over the last 50 years, f lu vaccines have been shown to be safe. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) hold vaccines to the highest performance and safety standards.

There are two types of flu vaccine: the flu shot and the nasal spray vaccine. TRUE

Until recently, the vaccine was only available as a shot. The nasal spray was approved for seasonal influenza viruses in 2003, and tens of millions of doses of the nasal spray have been given in the United States. Nasal spray is recommended for use in healthy people 2 years through 49 years of age who are not pregnant.

Certain people should not get the nasal spray flu vaccine. This includes: •

FALSE

You cannot get the flu from the flu shot.

There are very few medical reasons not to get the flu vaccine. They include life threatening reactions such as anaphylaxis to a previous dose of flu vaccine, serious allergy to eggs, or Guillain-Barré syndrome. People with a non-life threatening egg allergy may be vaccinated with specialized egg-free vaccines or may need to see a doctor specializing in allergies.

Who is most At Risk for Flu complications? Those most at risk for complications from the seasonal flu are: •

children aged 6 months through 4 years, however, the risk for severe complications from seasonal influenza is highest among

cardiovascular (except hypertension), kidney, liver, blood (including sickle cell disease), neurologic, neuromuscular, or metabolic disorders (including diabetes mellitus); •

Immunosuppression, including that caused by medications or by HIV;

Those that live with or care for individuals that are at high risk for flu-related complications should be vaccinated and include: •

caregivers of infants under the age of 6 months;

diseases (including diabetes), kidney diseases, blood disorders (such as sickle cell anemia), or weakened immune systems,

people in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities;

people with chronic pulmonary (including asthma, even if mild),

including persons with HIV/AIDS; •

health care workers involved in hands-on care to patients and household members and

household contacts (including children) and caregivers of persons with medical conditions that put them at higher risk for severe complications from flu.

TRUE

OR

FALSE

Only older people need a flu shot. False:

Everyone over 6 months of age needs vaccine.

Test your flu iq

TRUE

OR

FALSE

You can have the flu and not have any symptoms. TRUE:

Those infected with the flu virus are contagious to others even before they develop symptoms of flu. Up to 25 percent of those infected with flu may not have any symptoms at all.

What is the seasonal flu? Seasonal f lu is a disease that causes mild to severe illness. Each year in the United States, there are 25-50 million infections, over 200,000 hospitalizations and roughly 23,600 deaths due to f lu. Over 90 percent of deaths and about 60 percent of hospitalizations occur in people older than 65.

What are the symptoms of flu? Fever greater than 100 degrees, coughing, sore throat, chills, headache and body aches, fatigue, respiratory congestion, and in some cases, diarrhea and vomiting. People experiencing these symptoms should contact their physician.

What is the best way not to get the flu? A) The best way to stop the spread of f lu is to get the f lu vaccine each year. The vaccine takes one to two weeks to start working and is the best protection in preventing the f lu. The f lu vaccine will not give you the f lu! It helps protect you against the f lu virus. B) Also, remember to wash your hands and avoid close contact with people who are coughing or otherwise appear ill.

Who should get flu vaccine? The CDC recommends that everyone 6 months old and older should get the f lu vaccine each year.

How Do I Protect Myself From Getting the Flu? The main way that f lu viruses are thought to spread is from person to person when droplets from a cough or sneeze of an infected person are propelled through the air and deposited on the mouth or nose of people nearby. Flu viruses may also be spread when a person touches the droplets on another person or an object and then touches their own mouth or nose (or someone else’s mouth or nose) before washing their hands.

Take Actions to Stay Healthy •

Get the seasonal flu vaccine each year!

Stay home if you are sick. You should stay home until you are feeling better and after fever is gone for 24 hours without taking fever reducers. While you are sick, limit contact with others to keep from infecting them.

Avoid close contact with people who are coughing or otherwise appear ill.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.

Wash hands frequently with warm, soapy water to lessen the spread of illness.

TRUE

OR

FALSE

You should cover a cough with your hand to protect others. false:

You should cover your cough with a tissue or sneeze into your elbow.

When hand washing is not possible, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

Go to www.healthy.arkansas.gov for more information and call your local health unit for days and hours of operations. The flu vaccine will cost $30 or your insurance may be billed.

Methodology for Best Lawyers® This list is excerpted from the 2014 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America, the pre-eminent referral guide to the legal profession in the United States. Published since 1983, Best Lawyers lists attorneys in 134 specialties, representing all 50 states, who have been chosen through an exhaustive survey in which thousands of the nation’s top lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. The 2014 Edition of Best Lawyers is based on more than 4.9 million evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers. The method used to compile Best Lawyers remains unchanged since the first edition was compiled more than 30 years ago. Lawyers are chosen for inclusion based solely on the vote of their peers. Listings cannot be bought, and no purchase is required to be included. In this regard, Best Lawyers remains the gold standard of reliability and integrity in lawyer ratings.

Congratulations on being selected among the “Best Lawyers” in Arkansas

The nomination pool for the 2014 Edition consisted of all lawyers whose names appeared in the previous edition of Best Lawyers, lawyers who were nominated since the previous survey, and new nominees solicited from listed attorneys. In general, lawyers were asked to vote only on nominees in their own specialty in their own jurisdiction. Lawyers in closely related specialties were asked to vote across specialties, as were lawyers in smaller jurisdictions. Where specialties are national or international in nature, lawyers were asked to vote nationally as well as locally. Voting lawyers were also given an opportunity to offer more detailed comments on nominees. Each year, half of the voting pool receives fax or email ballots; the other half is polled by phone. Voting lawyers were provided this general guideline for determining if a nominee should be listed among “the best”: “If you had a close friend or relative who needed a real estate lawyer (for example), and you could not handle the case yourself, to whom would you refer them?” All votes and comments were solicited with a guarantee of confidentiality-a critical factor in the viability and validity of Best Lawyers surveys. To ensure the rigor of the selection process, lawyers were urged to use only their highest standards when voting, and to evaluate each nominee based only on his or her individual merits. The additional comments were used to make more accurate comparisons between voting patterns and weight votes accordingly. Best Lawyers uses various methodological tools to identify and correct for anomalies in both the nomination and voting process. Ultimately, of course, a lawyer’s inclusion is based on the subjective judgments of his or her fellow attorneys. While it is true that the lists may at times disproportionately reward visibility or popularity, the breadth of the survey, the candor of the respondents, and the sophistication of the polling methodology largely correct for any biases. For all these reasons, Best Lawyers lists continue to represent the most reliable, accurate and useful guide to the best lawyers in the United States available anywhere. Best Lawyers lists are available at www.bestlawyers.com. “Best Lawyers” and “The Best Lawyers in America” are registered trademarks of Woodward/White Inc.

MOVIE REVIEW

Celebrating the life and times of

‘ALL IS LOST’: Robert Redford stars.

A soul adrift Redford carries ‘All Is Lost’ alone. BY SAM EIFLING

S

ee “All Is Lost” thirsty. Or peckish. The film is such a sensory ride — predicated on simple bodily states of feeling cold, or soggy, or fatigued, or sun-battered, or going mad with fear — that a bit of forced empathy can only sharpen the experience. This is the rare disaster movie told about one person, and the rare movie of any sort with a one-person cast: Robert Redford, playing a sailor credited simply as “Our Man.” He rarely speaks, and what scant exposition he offers is mostly through the possessions scattered around his 39-foot yacht. And all that happens is, he wakes to find a stray shipping container has punctured his hull. He’s somewhere in the Indian Ocean, alone, and the boat is taking on water, and he doesn’t want to die. If you’re just coming from a sushi buffet or a family potluck, this won’t seem quite as scary, even as the chaotic days roll by. But go in a little parched, a little hungry, and you’ll feel how an emergency expands once it’s shrunk to the size of a single, hollow stomach. What we can tell about Our Man suggests he’s not accustomed to scarcity. Redford, who’s 77, carries himself around the boat with an assuredness that suggests Our Man is a longtime hobbyist, at least, but one expecting leisure. With his electricity on the fritz, he cracks a vintage book from his shelf called “Celestial Navigation for Yachtsmen,” seemingly for the first time. His foodstuffs — packaged dinners, cans of organic beans — hint at yuppie tastes. His clothes and outerwear look like recent buys, rather than broken-in favorites. A curt monologue in the opening moments gives us hints at his life: Convinced of his impending death, he apologizes to his loved ones, says he always tried to do right, and apologizes again. He’s just a guy, in a great deal of trouble. A more sentimental director (or, frankly, any major studio) would’ve forced more words into Our Man’s mouth — he would’ve written more than that single

letter, or read old notes (the one he finds, he tosses aside, still in the envelope), or anthropomorphized a volleyball, or bargained with God. Writer/director J.C. Chandor — whose only other feature, “Margin Call,” earned him an Oscar nod for its screenplay — prefers deeds over words. His show-don’t-tell approach packs 106 minutes of movie into a script purportedly just 32 pages long. Aside from the sounds of water slapping the hull, the rumble of approaching storms, and a few occasional grunts, it’s virtually a silent film. The minimalism turns “All Is Lost” into a multilayered puzzle. The first order of business throughout is, how is he going to survive? Each move he makes, and the order in which he makes them, become objects of instant scrutiny. Because he’s no superhero, but rather a 77-year-old dude who knocks back most of a bottle of amber liquor when he’s stressed, and doesn’t think ahead to when he should deploy his storm jib, there’s room for critique. And that’s the second mystery that you get to tease apart: What makes this fellow tick? What does it say for him that he doesn’t fret, rarely mutters, sleeps soundly each night and takes a moment to shave in the minute before a storm wallops him? Will he hold together? Whatever insouciance Our Man displays early on evaporates as his situation goes from bad to cataclysmic. His journey, writ small, is everyone’s. We’re alive, bad things happen, we do our best, we think we’re going to be fine, and gradually, we realize we’re probably gonna die. Our Man rides with his mortality in smaller and smaller confines. Redford’s great in this part, because we believe instantly he could be so cocksure as to find himself in this situation. He’s convincingly rich, retired, riding the seas in search of the next challenge? Well, he found it. Yacht or not, the world’s poorest man is the one who doesn’t know where his next drink of water is coming from.

‘YOU CAN’T PUT ME IN A BOX,’ CONT. from page 24 Tillman is even resistant to labels he gives himself, like, well, “nerd from the hood.” “What I’m trying to do by calling myself that is I’m trying to put myself in a package that people can digest,” he said. “People are not ready to process ... that’s what racism and prejudice is all about ... people are not ready to process complex personalities. I’m trying to put it in a package for them so they can understand it.” So the guy hollering that he can’t be put in a box is also trying to package himself in an easily digestible way. Is that a contradiction? Or how about that a rapper desperate not to get pinned down by gangsta stereotypes loves to rhyme about guns? Or that this album is 607’s attempt to explain and categorize himself, a dude who has gleefully spent his life being inexplicable and unclassifiable? Well, yes, contradictions abound. That’s part of the fun! 607 contains multitudes. Whereas he used to put out an album around four times a year, Tillman, who turned 34 this year, lately has been releasing an album just once a year, on Halloween. He’s gotten better, he said, and his songs have more staying power. In the early days, he was releasing so much music not just to improve his skills but because “people got tired of the songs — they didn’t have replay value. So I needed to come out with something else so I could pay my bills. Now I’m learning how to make music better that lasts longer.” He makes a living off of his music and related work, a point of pride. More than a decade after he started, he’s become perhaps the most recognizable face in Little Rock hip-hop, and no one has worked harder to build the scene. He sees himself as an elder statesman, a role he takes seriously. “It’s come a long way,” he said. “There’s a lot of people who get frustrated with it, but when you’re building something brand new from the ground up it takes a long time. I never wanted to be one of those transplant people who went to San Francisco or New York because the city was cool. I feel like I’m the type of person that I’ll make a place cool. I want to stay here and build something here so cool people can stay here with me. I’m making music for the cool politicians... . It’s a network of us. In the future, it’s going to be a reason for all of this.” Tillman talks a lot about his love for Arkansas and Little Rock and the ways that it inspires his life and music — but on the album’s opener, “Kill Crooked

Cops,” it’s clear local events have also been a source of pain. “This has been an emotional year, that’s why this is an emotional album,” Tillman said. The song is an angry recounting of police brutality and fatal shootings, with a heavy focus on particular cases in Little Rock. “Kill Crooked Cops,” for all its bluster, is fundamentally about fear. Tillman is afraid of what the police might do: “I’m trying to teach my nephews right from wrong/but still as I write this song it got me crying/ police might kill ’em and still don’t get no time.” He also laments that the police are scared of him. “Before you hire a cop see what they made of/cause they ain’t gonna protect the people they afraid of.”  That said, for all of the emotional appeals (and the “if you an honest cop you ain’t got nothing to worry about” caveat), most listeners will probably zero in on the title and lines like “hunting season’s open” and “shoot that bitch in the head.” Talking to Tillman, what becomes clear is that what upsets him the most is that police are misjudging him, or people like him (“I’m a citizen bro, I do everything by the book” he told me — or as he raps in the song, “they treating all black males like criminals/most of us make a living honest”). That’s the tricky thing about a song like “Kill Crooked Cops” — its best insight is that tragedy happens when cops are afraid of citizens who they have no reason to be afraid of. But while no one has any reason to fear Tillman, 607’s posture on the track is surely meant to inspire fear. Of course, saying something on a record and real-life violence are two very different things. But what occurs to me hearing “Kill Crooked Cops” is that 607 at his best aims to transcend the heartbreaking misunderstandings central to those tragedies. People are wired, he told me, to be uncomfortable or scared of the unfamiliar. “That’s your brain, it’s a survival thing,” he said. “We have to program ourselves where we understand that and get around that.” I suggested that his music might help people re-program a little bit. “I hope so,” he said. “I just want to change the way that people look at people and the way the hood looks at itself.” Adrian Tillman, the “nerd from the hood,” is neither nerd nor hood because he’s too much of a freewheeling oddball spirit to be either. He’s one of a kind. May he make 39 more albums. My only prediction: whatever we imagine they’ll sound like, they’ll sound like something else.

THE INSIDER, CONT. from page 11 this, the action is hers to initiate. Like you she signed a contract that contains a morals clause. ... The morals clause is essential because Mount St. Mary’s Academy is not, contrary to the opinion of some, a private school separate from the Catholic Church. ... It would be completely and absolutely against the very nature of a Catholic institution for any one of its members to publicly support, propagate, manifest or demonstrate that which is contrary to the Catholic Church. This situation, as tragic as it was for this teacher, demonstrates exactly why moral clauses are necessary.” A right to dissent “does not come without a price.” Students, gay rights groups and others have publicly protested the decision. But said Malone, “... if you think that the outcry by those who do not subscribe to this action was significant, I can assure you that in the face of the public nature of what took place in New Mexico and what was known already here in Little Rock, had the administration chosen to turn a blind eye to it, the Catholic community in Little Rock and the Catholic Church in this country would have come down on this institution like a plague and rightly so — asking the question that some have been asking already, ‘What makes Mount St. Mary Academy Catholic?’” Malone began his closing by telling the assembled staff that “the devil is real.” He observed: “Good and humble people go to confession. In the same way the devil does not go after bad people, because well frankly, he already has those bad people. He goes after people like you and institutions like this one and he uses all sorts of people and circumstances to take from you what he does not have and what he wants to take. And you have to be aware of that. Don’t give in to him. Rise up above this like the good and decent people God has made you to be. And truly are. I’m edified by being in your presence this week and just the feel of this place so recognize that — you’ve heard of that expression the devil’s in the details? — he is here and he is real. He wants to do something really bad to this place and you’ve seen evidence of that. But that’s also a sign again that this place is really good and has something wonderful about it or he wouldn’t come after us at all. So rise above it and don’t be afraid to speak the truth.” Malone, in response to a question from the Times, said these remarks should not be taken as personal char-

acterizations of McCullough or Mariani. He said he had deep affection for the school, a good place, and good always faced malign influences. He said the remarks were meant more to soothe supporters of the school who felt it had been “under attack” in recent controversies, including an unrelated case involving a teacher’s sexual abuse of a former student. Malone sought to explain remarks the pope had made recently in press interviews on abortion and homosexuality. He said his translation of the remark on abortion was that the pope “said we should stop hammering people with the subject of abortion as if it’s the only topic in the church.” He said there were “so many other things we need to be talking about.” He said there’s a pastor in the diocese who, “if you’ve heard one sermon you’ve heard every sermon he’s ever preached.” Added Malone, “He’s a wonderful priest and a very compassionate man, he only has one sermon. That’s where the Pope said you should stop hammering on this one subject ...” Malone said the pope had followed this interview with remarks slamming doctors who perpetuate the “culture of death.” He added, “It’s as tough as you ever heard from Pope Benedict so he wasn’t saying get off the subject.” “[Pope Francis’] response was, who am I to judge. Well, that’s a beautiful way of approaching the subject.” Malone said he had a relative who’s “as gay as the day is long.” He said he loves him dearly. He went on to detail that, from an early age, he had noticed “there were what we would call the stereotypical signs of perhaps he was more inclined to be gay.” He wanted to play with dolls and wear girls’ clothing. As he grew up he was “far more concerned about designing things and dressing up and listening to musicals and dancing ...” Now a dress designer, “he’s a wonderful young man,” the monsignor said. He said “if I found one of my staff members was homophobic, critical of people simply for their orientation, I said I would fire them. That’s what the pope is talking about. Because someone is oriented one way or the other, that’s not the issue. It’s how we act on our orientation. If you are gay and you are straight the church is going to say the same thing to you about sexuality outside of marriage — same thing. So the orientation is not the issue. That’s what the pope is talking about: Who am I to judge? It’s not for me to judge. When things become public, however, public acts, that’s a whole different ball game, especially if people at the same time represent the church.” www.arktimes.com

Dining WHAT’S COOKIN’ SAY MCINTOSH ON 7TH, the Stifft Station soul food and barbecue restaurant run by the family of the great Little Rock political agitator, philanthropist and sweet potato pie maker, was quietly shuttered over a year ago, but word comes that it’ll be reopening on Friday, Nov. 8 under new management and a new name: Say McIntosh Restaurant and Sweet Potato Pie Factory. Say’s grandson, Robert McIntosh III, will be the new owner, and said he decided to re-open the restaurant in the same location because it was already outfitted for his needs. McIntosh said the menu and handed down family recipes will be largely unchanged, with big burgers, barbecue, soul food, lemonade and wedges of his grandfather’s famous sweet potato pie. You can’t count yourself a true Little Rocker without trying a slice at least once in your life. The restaurant is located at 2801 W. 7th Street and the phone number is 812-3911. Hours are 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. SPEAKING OF SAY MCINTOSH, the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center is hosting its 2nd annual “Say It Ain’t Say’s” pie contest, named for the Sweet Potato Pie King himself, from 2-5 p.m. Dec. 1. Deadline to announce intent to enter is 4 p.m. Nov. 18. Find the entry form and contest rules at mosaictemplarscenter.com On Dec. 1, pies will be displayed, judging will take place and the winners will be announced at the Mosaic Templars Holiday Open House. There’s no fee to enter, but competitors are asked to bring a new toy for the Stop the Violence toy drive. Winners of the first “Say It Ain’t Say’s” contest were “Blondie’s Sweet Potato Pie” by Latrice Catering and Design, “Sweet Potato Pie Cheesecake” by Sondra Strong and “Sassy Sweet Potato Pie w/ Bourbon Pecans” by Sweet Love. “Santa Say Pie” by Cathi Compton came in second in the amateur competition behind Strong.

PERFECTO: Seafood fettuccini from Bruno’s Little Italy.

Bruno’s reborn Popular for good reason.

B

runo’s Little Italy is back, and much of Little Rock is rejoicing because of it. The one time Italian staple, which has bounced around through several locations in the Little Rock area since it opened in 1948, has been revived downtown on Main Street on the ground floor of the Mann Lofts. This go ’round, the Bruno’s — who weren’t involved in the business when it faltered several years ago — are back in charge, led by Vince Bruno, son of the restaurant’s original founder, Jimmy Bruno, in partnership with his brother Gio Bruno. Many former Bruno’s regulars will admit that while Bruno’s was once a shining beacon of Italian fare — a Little Rock institution that could practically do no wrong — in its latter years, changes in management and food quality saw Bruno’s begin to slip down that painful slope of mediocrity. When the former Bruno’s (located on Bowman Curve) closed its doors, some thought it was the end of the place, and many were not entirely surprised to see it go. But given its early success, rumors of its rebirth understandably stirred up a good deal of excitement around town. A move to Main Street meant a much-needed push towards revitalization of a section of Little Rock that for years struggled to

Bruno’s Little Italy

310 Main St. 372-7866

QUICK BITE This go-round, Bruno’s is making business a family affair. On our two visits, we were served by Gio Bruno’s daughter, Genny. Chef Vince and Gio both work the floor, ensuring that diners are having a satisfactory experience. There’s a Bruno at head chef back in the kitchen, several other young Bruno’s serving tables, and it’s clear that every one of them loves this restaurant. HOURS 5 p.m. until 10 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday 5 p.m. (expect lunch hours in the future). OTHER INFO Credit cards accepted, full bar.

attract the city’s dining residents. With this in mind, we made our way to the newly opened Bruno’s Little Italy on Main Street. Red-and-white checkered tablecloths adorn each table, wine flows like a gentle stream into tall, stemmed glassware, and pizza dough is lovingly tossed around for all customers to marvel at through the kitchen window. The new space is beautifully done. It’s charming, clean, spacious and invit-

ing. As you peer around at the ancient family photos covering much of the tall, freshly painted walls, you feel as though the Bruno family is sharing an important piece of their life with you. We began our meal with a few loaves of house-baked bread. They bring out a small, but whole loaf of crusty white bread. The bread took some strength to crack open owing to the crispy and slightly tough outer coat, but the inside was found to be soft, pillowy and entirely satisfying with a spread of their salty, whipped butter. Next our table shared the Assorted Antipasto ala Vincenzo ($16), a large plate with a variety of components, easily shared between two or three people. We pored over long slices of rolled prosciutto imported from Italy; slick, oily salami; small, rolled anchovies, and thin slices of pepperoni. There were slices of Manchego cheese, black olives, briny caper berries, marinated artichokes, sweet peppers, sun-dried tomatoes and a herbaceous, freshly chopped salad. We were all impressed and devoured with gusto. The array of textures and flavors — salty, citrus, sour — were a fantastic start to the meal. We also selected a side order of their popular, house made Italian sausage ($5). It’s rather plain to look at — two grilled sausages smothered in red sauce — but the flavors within were remarkable. The sausages are sliced in half lengthwise, grilled, and served under marinara sauce. They come out tender and soft, but still retain a nice snap when cutting into them. The spiciness of the sausage plays well with the tangy, almost sweet flavor of their exemplary tomato sauce. It’s a sauce so good, even after the sausages are devoured, you’ll want to sop up every last drop of it with a crust of bread. Entrees came next, beginning with a thick, layered Lasagna Imbotito ($15). It was beautifully done — the sheets of pasta were soft and delicate, between them sat crumbly ricotta cheese. The lower layers held a spread of ground beef and pork. A thin layer of red sauce was draped over the top crowned by a layer of melted mozzarella. It’s a simple and classic approach — you’ve seen its sort before — but it was done with care, and we thoroughly enjoyed every bite. Our server recommended the vegetable manicotti ($16), and we took her advice. Here was a long, fattened tube of

STAY FOR THE VEAL: Bruno’s Little Italy’s veal Parmesan

stuffed pasta — filled with spinach, broccoli, onions and ricotta cheese — smothered in red sauce and draped in mozzarella. The dish came to us fresh from the oven; it bubbled and steamed as it hit the table. The pasta was soft, punctuated by golden gobs of salty cheese. The vegetables within gave it texture and depth. Again, we were pleased. Next came a delightful veal parmesan ($15). Lightly breaded veal, served with a thin, crispy coat and a soft, white inside. It was easily sliced through with the edge of the fork, and even easier on the tongue. The veal was rich but still light, slightly salty but not overly so. It also rested under a dressing of red sauce and melted mozzarella. There was a seafood fettuccini ($22) — thick, al dente pasta, in a thin sauce of butter and cream, sauteed shrimp, tender clams, and a few seared scallop medallions on top. Where we expected a heavy, overly rich dish, this was surprisingly light. The scallops, golden brown on each side, were cooked perfectly. We could not resist a taste of the Torta di Ricotta ($7), an Italian cheesecake, for dessert. The presentation was simple — a rather bleak looking white plate with a plain white cheesecake — but the flavor was delightful. It was only mildly sweet, fluffy and less dense that a classic New York style cheesecake might be. We’d happily order this treat again. Since its opening, the place has been busy — so busy, even the Bruno family have been surprised with their early success. But this is not unexpected given the experiences we’ve had with the restaurant. There’s good reason to be excited for the return of Bruno’s. There are glimpses of greatness here and it’s easy to see what made this place so popular. This is Italian comfort food at its finest.
