WEEK THAT WAS

Still seeing red

Arkansas Republicans remain firmly in control in Arkansas after the Nov. 6 election. All four incumbent GOP U.S. representatives won re-election. So, too, did Governor Hutchinson, Attorney General Leslie Rutledge, Lt. Gov. Tim Griffin, Auditor Andrea Lea and Treasurer Dennis Milligan. Republican Land Commissioner John Thurston won the secretary of state contest and Tommy Land, a Republican, will replace Thurston. Republicans retained overwhelming control of the state House and Senate, though Democrat Denise Garner did defeat incumbent Republican state Rep. Charlie Collins and, in the surprise of the night, Democrat Megan Godfrey upset state Rep. Jeff Williams (R-Springdale). But state Democratic Party leader and state Rep. Michael John Gray lost his re-election bid in Augusta, four-lane highways. The suit seeks to long a reliably Democratic area. Supreme Court Justice Courtney enjoin the Highway Commission from Goodson won re-election against David spending money on anything wider than Sterling despite Sterling heavily branding four lanes. himself as a Republican and an outside group spending more than $1.2 million to attack Goodson.

be structured in a way that provides individuals an opportunity to succeed, with high stakes for beneficiaries who fail,” it said. People who do not report their work hours for three months out of the year are locked out of coverage until the following calendar year. The letter also expressed concerns about the state requiring beneficiaries to report their work hours online, even though Arkansas has limited internet access. The Arkansas Department of Human Services says it has set up a means for people to report their work hours by phone by relaying the information through “registered reporters” — insurance agents, social workers or others — but the commission said the Arkansas DHS was unable to provide it “with information on how

many beneficiaries are taking advantage of that assistance.” Similarly, the letter criticized the state’s focus on performing beneficiary outreach online or through social media as “problematic given the low level of internet access” in Arkansas.

New arena name

Simmons Bank has bought the naming rights to what is now Verizon Arena, a 15-year deal costing $10.5 million. The name change of the publicly owned North Little Rock venue will take effect in 2019. Verizon had indicated it didn’t want to continue its sponsorship. Verizon became the name in 2009 after it purchased assets of Alltel, the original arena namesake when it opened in 1999.

C

ourtney Goodson won her race to stay on the state Supreme Court last week with something to spare, in spite of the unprecedented sludge of dark-money ads that tried to persuade people that she was an execrable wench who was capable of almost anything. So, we are supposed to be relieved that the great threat to judicial independence represented by the darkmoney campaigns against court candidates the past six years is past. Justice Goodson’s surprisingly easy victory over David Sterling must prove that voters are finally on to the plot to politicize the courts so they will favor corporations, and people aren’t going to stand for it. Oh, if that were only true. The more likely truth is that the darkmoney groups — the Judicial Crisis Network and the Republication State Leadership Committee in Washington, D.C. — overplayed their hands by the million-dollar attacks on a woman who simply looked too

sweet to be such a witch. The year 2018 was not the year for that kind ERNEST of thing. Goodson DUMAS was smart, too. She fought back with two silly lawsuits that tried to stop the media and the shadow groups from airing the ads. Neither suit had even a remote chance of success in overriding the First Amendment, but they brought attention to the unfairness of the attacks. It might help if people understood the basis of the sham commercials, which were based loosely on facts about Goodson’s romance with a trial lawyer and the gifts lavished upon her about the time, in 2011, that she was being elected to the Supreme Court. I’m here to help do that.

to collect damages for harm done to them by commercial interests through negligence, fraud or deception. The legislature and Gov. Mike Huckabee in 2003 enacted a sweeping law curtailing people’s right to damages, right after the governor and the legislature had levied a heavy daily bed tax on private-paying nursing home patients so the state could use the money to get a 3-for-1 match of federal Medicaid dollars for nursing homes. State payments to nursing homes immediately doubled and tripled, an incredible bonanza for nursing home owners, like the owner of the biggest chain of homes, Michael Morton. Goodson (then Courtney Henry), a Republican when she ran for the nonpartisan Supreme Court in 2010, was backed by the party, the Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce and the industry group supporting tort reform. But one of her first opinions after arriving at the court was to strike down a section of the 2003 tort law that curtailed punitive damages. The law was a clear violation of not one but two sections of the state

Constitution, and no judge dedicated to the rule of law could have held any other way. Goodson simply wrote the court’s official opinion, a task that fell to her by the court’s rotation in the assignment of cases. But the phalanx of industry supporters of tort reform vowed eternal hostility because they thought she had betrayed them. When she ran for chief justice in 2016, the shadowy Judicial Crisis Network beat her with attack ads and stepped up the attacks this year when she was up for re-election. The case was Bayer Cropscience LP v. Schafer and it wasn’t directly about nursing homes. A bunch of rice farmers sued a German multinational corporation because, thanks to the company, the farmers’ rice was contaminated by genetically altered strains that had not been approved for human consumption, and the farmers’ rice was shut out of markets all over the world.

erhaps you recall the last time a French politician angered a certain kind of hairy-chested American nationalist. In February 2003, Dominique de Villepin, France’s conservative Minister of Foreign Affairs, cautioned the United Nations General Assembly about the sheer folly of invading Iraq. “We all share the same priority — that of fighting terrorism mercilessly,” de Villepin said. “This fight requires total determination.” He added that “[n]ot one of us feels the least indulgence towards Saddam Hussein and the Iraqi regime.” De Villepin nevertheless warned that having conquered Iraq, the United States would then face “incalculable consequences for the stability of this scarred and fragile region.” He urged that U.N. arms inspectors searching for Saddam’s (nonexistent) nuclear weapons be allowed to finish their job. Because he knew his audience, he also stressed his country’s eternal gratitude toward the United States: “This message comes to you today from an old country, France … that has known wars, occupation and barbarity. A country that does not forget and knows everything it owes to the freedom-fighters who came from America and elsewhere.” Even so, belligerent followers of President George W. Bush erupted against “cheese-eating surrender monkeys.” Furious nationalists dumped French wine into gutters. French fries became Freedom Fries. Today, hardly any serious observer doubts that the French were right. Bush’s Iraq adventure proved catastrophic: It cost hundreds of thousands of lives, countless billions of dollars, inspired ISIS terrorists and spread deadly ethnic and religious strife across the Middle East. Now comes French President Emmanuel Macron, who delivered a forceful speech marking the 100th anniversary of the armistice ending World War I by warning against a rising tide of nationalism worldwide that he deemed a “betrayal of patriotism” and also against “old demons coming back to wreak chaos and death.” Patriotism, Macron insisted, “is the exact opposite of nationalism. Nationalism is treason.” Treason against France’s governing ideals of liberte, egalite and fraternite (liberty, equality and brotherhood), he implied. Putting race and ethnicity above citizenship. Because Trump was sitting there sulking like a child, American commentators

assumed it was all about him. Everything is all about Trump in his mind. GENE But Macron LYONS was also clearly referring to Vladimir Putin’s aggression and growing ethnic tensions elsewhere in Europe. He was referring to the kinds of ideological and racial hatreds that led to the terrible cataclysm of “the war to end all wars” and the exponentially worse World War II that followed it. He was defending the international organizations devoted to avoiding a repeat: the U.N., NATO and the European Union. The distinction between patriotism and nationalism was perhaps most persuasively made by George Orwell. Writing in the shadow of World War II, he defined patriotism as a “devotion to a particular place and a particular way of life, which one believes to be the best in the world but has no wish to force on other people. Patriotism is of its nature defensive, both militarily and culturally.” Nationalism, on the other hand, Orwell defined as “the habit of assuming that human beings can be classified like insects and that whole blocks of millions or tens of millions of people can be confidently labeled ‘good’ or ‘bad,’ ” and “of identifying oneself with a single nation or other unit, placing it beyond good and evil and recognizing no other duty than that of advancing its interests.” “A nationalist,” Orwell continued, “is one who thinks solely, or mainly, in terms of competitive prestige … his thoughts always turn on victories, defeats, triumphs and humiliations. He sees history, especially contemporary history, as the endless rise and decline of great power units, and every event that happens seems to him a demonstration that his own side is on the upgrade and some hated rival is on the downgrade. … Nationalism is power-hunger tempered by self-deception.” Sound like anybody you know? In Paris, the American Achilles went AWOL, skipping a solemn ceremony commemorating the dead of Belleau Wood for fear of getting his hair wet. Nicholas Soames, a conservative British MP and the grandson of Winston Churchill, tweeted, “They died with their face to the foe and that pathetic inadequate @realDonaldTrump couldn’t even defy the weather to pay his respects to The Fallen.” As a patriot, I am embarrassed for my country.

A vision

T

he 2018 elections are over. Well, mostly over. Now what? Critically important issues dominate our current politics. The Arkansas legislature convenes in two months and members of the Arkansas Public Policy Panel will be there advocating for quality public education, access to health care, clean water, fair housing, criminal justice reform and more — and the resources to pay for them. Many lawmakers and special interest groups, in contrast, will be proposing massive tax cuts for the martini class and the continued dismantling of our public schools and other public infrastructure. These are all critical issues and we need to be engaged in them. But we pay a price when we don’t go a step further and connect the dots among issues into a comprehensive vision of how to build stronger communities. Without a vision, we play a polarizing game of whack-amole informed by passions instead of facts. We divide instead of building community. We are left to the manipulation of special interests that profit when we stay divided. Arkansas, like the rest of the country, has a growing urban-rural rift. And neither rural nor urban residents are well served by it. It is particularly absurd in Arkansas where the line between urban and rural is blurred and most of us have people we love in both. It’s time for a new social contract that creates a comprehensive vision for thriving communities in both rural and urban places. I cannot blame the rural brush fire consuming American politics that has produced our current political moment. Both parties have stood idly by, or supported, the hollowing out of the rural American economy for generations. The same thing has happened in the cities for all but the most privileged. Special interest groups have become masters at wrapping themselves in the guise of protecting the little guy while they push policies that extract wealth, labor and resources from our rural and urban communities. They have become masters at privatizing public structures so they can profit from them and avoid accountability. And they’ve become masters of pointing our anger about their actions at one another instead of the real culprits. We need a plan for reinvestment in our rural and urban communities. It has to be authentically grounded in com-

munity and led by residents — especially by people who haven’t BILL been at the deciKOPSKY sion-making Guest Columnist table before now. And then we need to stay focused on it beyond an election cycle. The opportunity for either political party is great. Democrats could reestablish credibility in rural communities. Republicans who took this seriously could expand their base in urban areas. Both could diversify their supporters while solving our biggest challenges. We can’t write off rural communities and we can’t take urban communities for granted. Some say that rural Americans are reflexively conservative and lost to progressive political movements forever. Hogwash. Some of the most progressive movements in American history have been led by rural working people unifying behind a vision of how to strengthen their communities. The leaders I know care much more about their community than any political ideology, and they are looking for solutions. No one is served by the status quo. It’s not like Republican proposals to continue cutting taxes for the wealthy, giving corporate welfare to big corporations and gutting the social contract for everything from education to health care is strengthening anyone’s community. The same is true in deep blue urban areas, where residents are frustrated with the choice between a party that takes them for granted and another party that openly attacks them. We need to think big picture and then drill into the issues. You certainly can’t build a healthy community without strong public schools and access to health care, but you can’t create a strong education and health care system when they are constantly being eroded by other issues like poverty and lack of opportunity. The real gap in America is not urbanrural, but opportunity. We need to stop blaming our lack of opportunities on each other or some demonized other. We need to create a bold vision and comprehensive plan for renewal across our communities. And if our politicians are too constrained by the status quo to lead, then it’s time for us to abandon them and do it for ourselves.

Petrino’s legacy

W

e could routinely trot out more verbiage about how these 2018 Arkansas Razorbacks keep on fighting to salvage a lost campaign. The home finale against LSU played out largely as scripted: The Hogs faced a hell of a challenge on a freezing Fayetteville night trying to move the ball against the Tigers’ front seven. Meanwhile, LSU did its thing, forcing methodical pacing and eschewing creativity for bullishness, and sending scads of defenders at a quarterback until he’s prone, either on the turf or to mistakes. Arkansas Quarterback Ty Storey played his unique brand of courageous, maddening ball. Having turned it over twice, he redeemed himself with two fourth-quarter touchdown throws to tight end Cheyenne O’Grady and a 24-3 snoozer turned into a 24-17 dogfight late, but the score ended there when the Tigers salted away the clock against a tired Arkansas defense that, for the most part, did defensive coordinator John Chavis proud. The narrow loss to the No. 7 team in the country left Hog fans dejected — the fourth loss by a touchdown or less in a season where the roster is starved — but nonetheless hopeful. What happened Sunday is a better indicator of why Arkansas football is in the doldrums, however. Louisville dropped the ax on nomadic, polarizing Bobby Petrino, with cause: After an embarrassing loss to Syracuse on Friday night, with no other college games of note to draw attention away from the prevalent issues dogging the Cardinals, they dropped their seventh straight game and fell to 2-8, 0-7 in the ACC. Everyone got to see the emperor defrocked while his undisciplined, disinterested team yielded 50-plus points for the fifth time. For all of Petrino’s human failings, documented to the point of exhaustion, this was a belated but deserved first: His shady modus operandi as a coach played out to its terminus without a life raft in sight. He was rocking and rolling at Louisville (then in the much weaker Conference USA) from 2003 to 2006, compiling a 41-9 mark that he parlayed into the Atlanta Falcons’ top job. His play-calling wizardry convinced Arthur Blank to shell out, and then 13 games into the 2007 season, with Michael Vick’s incarceration a convenient excuse for the Falcons’ faltering, he bailed for Arkansas in a move that made him reviled on the national stage but at least allowed one little Southern state’s rejoicing. And Petrino did his act here before selfimploding, going 34-17, and reaching the Sugar Bowl and the Top 3 nationally before unwise domestic and professional choices

bit him right in his red, puckered backside. That selfishness got him canned, and did a disservice to the addled but likable BEAU WILCOX John L. Smith, who really just wanted to take that Weber State job and retire with a little money and anonymity but ended up having to inherit and run the shitshow his precursor authored. Two full years of recruiting were tanked in the process, leaving Bret Bielema with a long road to travel upon his hiring in 2012. And Bielema did a fair job in 2014-15, but petered out, too. You may ask yourself why I’m rehashing damn near a decade-long ride on the Razorcoaster when there are two games left for Arkansas to try to extract mild momentum going into the offseason. But the reality is that Petrino is not a builder of programs, but a rampant, unrepentant destroyer of them, and Arkansas was the unfortunate situs where this modern-day Nero fiddled away a concerto amid a program in flames. Jeff Long committed untold financial resources to the promise of glory, and five years after Petrino’s highway spill and gross dishonesty, football at Arkansas remains an expensive ship trying to find a rudder. Louisville, you might recall, tumbled badly after he first left there in 2006, with his successor, Steve Kragthorpe, going 15-21 in three years before being dismissed. Was that a function of Petrino being that superior of a coach to those who preceded and succeeded him? Hardly. Petrino was of a singular dimension, falsely disguised as a wunderkind, and Chad Morris still wrestles with the fact that some in this deluded state would still rather have seen Jeff Long pardon his darling and let the string play out. We’ve seen now, finally, how that goes. If forced to stay somewhere for long — and he never has been — “BMFP” nukes the damn thing, and in spectacular, resonating fashion. It was no accident that Smith and Bielema combined for seven wins across 2012 and 2013: Petrino was a misanthrope, and young adult males don’t want to suffer that brand of abuse for long. Morris has somehow assembled an unparalleled recruiting class for 2019 to summon new hope. But the Petrino debacle’s lasting effects cannot ever be ignored, forgiven or understated, and even with all-new players, those empty north end zone seats tell the sad story of what one man’s ego can do to a major college football program.


Breathe

I

t feels like The Observer hasn’t been able to breathe this deep since Nov. 7, 2016. That’s a long time to be holding your breath. At this hour, the Wave Election that a lot of pundits and prognosticators have assured us was no wave rolls on, sweeping up Republicans and turning their political futures ass over teakettle all over this nation. Still, there seems to be a lingering sentiment among a lot of Democrats that perhaps this was not as much as it could have been, or even a failure. Maybe it is disappointment that things didn’t turn out to be a reverse of how it went in 2010, when Democrats — assured they’d seen The End of Politics with the election of Barack Obama — stayed home for the midterms while pissed off Republicans showed up, flipping 63 House seats and six seats in the Senate, putting the GOP in charge of both chambers of Congress to this day, though not, thankfully, much longer. What we got on Election Night this year was that Republicans actually showed up to defend their positions, voted in droves … and got soundly outvoted across the country. What we got is a slow-rolling, powerful boil that, while not made-for-TV dramatic as soon as the polls closed, is on track to claim more than 35 seats in the House (along with decisive control of that body and its investigative powers), flipped seven governorships from red to blue, made the majority of our country’s state attorneys general Democrats, and — with the announcement that Kyrsten Sinema had won the Arizona U.S. Senate seat occupied by long-suffering pearl-clutcher Jeff Flake — held net Democratic losses in the upper chamber to two in a year when the economy is riding high and the map of Senate seats Democrats had to defend in red states looking like a spook story liberals tell their kids around the campfire. Florida, meanwhile, overwhelmingly approved the re-enfranchisement of 1.4 million former felons. That’s more potential new voters than the total population of 10 American states, including Alaska, Vermont, Delaware and Montana. Because of our country’s shameful history of racist mass incarceration, up to 20 percent of Florida’s AfricanAmerican population had been unable to vote because they’re former felons. Sign up the majority of those new voters and get them to the polls, and the notoriously swingy Florida has a shot to flip solidly Democratic in 2020 and maybe forever. That’s 29 votes in the Electoral College, and a state Trump won by 103,000 souls.

THE OBSERVER NOTES ON THE PASSING SCENE

By nearly every metric, Election Day 2018 was a long-legged repudiation of Trump and the party that has coddled him, even as his prodigy for division has wrecked our nation’s standing around the globe and put Americans at each other’s throats. But still Democrats mope, still talk of “mixed results” and dab their eyes over Beto, who never showed a reliable lead in polling during his entire campaign and yet still got within 2.5 points of knocking off human polyp Ted Cruz in blood-red Texas. Come January, Kansas, Maine and Wisconsin will have Democratic governors, their execrable former or current execs Brownback, LePage and Walker, respectively, kicked curbside. Colorado, meanwhile, will have America’s first openly gay governor, who proudly introduced his “First Man” on Election night. California Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, who votes favorable to Russia so often that members of his own party have called him Putin’s congressman, is out the door after 30 years, part of a West Coast sweep that will obliterate the former Republican stronghold in wealthy Orange County. Kansas sent a lesbian Native-American former MMA cage fighter to the House. Minnesota and Michigan sent Muslim women. When life gets you down, imagine Mike Pence’s face as he swears in the later two on the Koran in a few months. Democrats also took control of seven more state legislatures and broke vetoproof GOP supermajorities in Pennsylvania, Michigan and North Carolina, all of which will have Democratic governors come January. Remember the Georgia 6th Congressional District, where Democrat Jon Ossoff lost a massively expensive and bitterly divisive special election runoff in June 2017, leading White House gargoyle Kellyanne Conway to tweet on Election Night that she was #laughingherOssoff? A funny thing happened while we weren’t looking. Come January, that seat will be held by a Democrat — a woman who lost her son to gun violence and thus despises the NRA from a special blue hell deep in her soul. Wonder if Conway is laughing now? Long story short: If this was a win for Trump and the GOP, please give us more winning in 2020, so we can kick several hundred more of his apologists and Agent Orange himself out the door. Chin up, Resistance. This was a wave and a win. Breathe. Fight on.

CASINO COUNTRY

Arkansas rolls the dice with the passage of Issue 4. BY BENJAMIN HARDY

14

NOVEMBER 15, 2018

ARKANSAS TIMES


BRIAN CHILSON

O

n Nov. 6, for the second election cycle in a row, Arkansas voted for vice. Issue 4, a constitutional amendment authorizing four casinos in the state, was approved by 54 percent of voters on Election Day 2018 — an echo of the vote on the medical marijuana amendment that Arkansans approved by a similar margin in 2016. Note that the state also overwhelmingly supported Republicans both years. Maybe it’s the influence of Donald Trump or maybe it’s some larger cultural slouch toward Gomorrah, but social conservatism just isn’t what it used to be. Many GOP voters in Arkansas seem increasingly comfortable with sinful behavior, at least when it has the potential to be entertaining. The passage of Issue 4 was no foregone conclusion. Arkansans rejected ballot initiatives that would have amended the state Constitution to allow casino gambling in 1984, 1996 and 2000. That didn’t discourage gaming interests from continuing to try: In 2012 and 2016, proposed amendments were placed on the ballot, only to be disqualified by the Arkansas Supreme Court because of problems with the wording of the ballot title. Issue 4 faced two legal challenges of its own, but in October the Arkansas Supreme Court ruled in favor of Driving Arkansas Forward, the committee behind the measure. Little Rock attorney Alex Gray, counsel for Driving Arkansas Forward, said the Supreme Court ruling was half the reason this amendment succeeded when so many other attempts had failed. “First off, it was actually on the ballot. The ballot title was drafted properly, people could understand it and … we got

good signatures. It was not susceptible to the challenges that we saw with other initiatives,” he said. The campaign for Issue 4 won voters over by framing its arguments in terms of economics. “The second reason is that people are tired of losing our dollars to surrounding states and their casinos,” Gray said. “This was not an effort to somehow make Arkansas a ‘casino state.’ It was not an effort to do this huge expansion of gambling in the state. It was just an attempt to boost our economy, create thousands of jobs and keep our tax dollars here.” Nonetheless, Issue 4 will significantly expand gambling in Arkansas. The measure directs the Arkansas State Racing Commission to issue four new licenses for casinos to be located in Garland, Crittenden, Jefferson and Pope counties. The Garland County license must be awarded to Oaklawn Jockey Club in Hot Springs and the Crittenden County license must be awarded to Southland Racing Corp., which operates the greyhound track in West Memphis. The racing commission will award the other two licenses following a merit-based application process that has yet to be established. No entity may hold more than one license. Sanctioned gaming activities include anything found in casinos from Tunica to Vegas. The amendment authorizes “any game played with cards, dice, equipment, or any mechanical, electromechanical, or electronic device or machine for money, property, checks, credit, or any representative value, as well as accepting wagers on sporting events.” A federal law prohibiting sports betting was struck down by the U.S. Supreme Court earlier this year, and Issue 4 overrides an Arkansas statute that otherwise still bans the prac-

tice in the state Good legal verbiage and PR aside, there are other reasons why Issue 4 beat the odds and became law. One is the fact that Arkansas’s existing gambling industry seems to have been cut in on the deal from the beginning. Oaklawn and Southland have fiercely guarded their turf from outside competition by fighting previous attempts to establish casinos in Arkansas. Their opposition helped bring down the 2016 proposal, which was pushed by a group of Missouri investors and the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma. The racetracks in Hot Springs and West Memphis have long operated casinos in all but name. Technically, Arkansas law prohibited any casinos until last week, but Oaklawn and Southland convinced the legislature in 2005 to enact a statute allowing patrons to wager on so-called “electronic games of skill.” Issue 4 ends the need for this farcical workaround and allows the two “racinos” to begin offering real slots and table games instead of video simulations of such. It also gives them a tax cut and a sizable head start on their two potential competitors, which still must secure licenses, build facilities and gain the blessing of local officials. (In Pope County, at least, that could prove to be a significant roadblock.) With the racetracks and their attorneys co-opted, groups opposing Issue 4 were left underfunded and outgunned. In 2016, the Family Council, a conservative political advocacy group that opposes gambling in all forms, found itself effectively aligned with Oaklawn and Southland in fighting out-of-state gaming interests. But in 2018, Southland threw its support behind Issue 4 while Oaklawn stayed neutral. Two committees formed

ALEX GRAY: The counsel for casino proponents Driving Arkansas Forward says the process of awarding licenses won’t be plagued by the same problems as medical cannabis because the Arkansa Racing Commission is experienced.

to fight Issue 4 together raised only about $30,000 through Oct. 27, the most recent campaign finance reporting date. A third opposition gropu called “Vote No on Issue 4” was only formed in late October. It raised $150,000 from Caesars Entertainment of Las Vegas, but it’s not clear how much of that money was actually spent. In contrast, records show Driving Arkansas Forward raised $7.05 million in contributions through Oct. 27; another committee created to back Issue 4 raised a separate $1.91 million during that period. Through the end of October, supporters of the amendment appear to have outraised opponents by a factor of more than 50 to 1. Family Council President Jerry Cox said the amendment will adversely affect Arkansas. He said the casinos will have a harmful effect on the communities in which they’re located, as those who live nearby will be more susceptible to gambling addiction. Cox also said the casinos will have a negative impact on local economies, as some will choose to spend money on gambling instead of more essential purchases, like groceries and house payments. (It’s not just conservatives, of course; plenty of moderate and liberal voters also feel casinos will bring more harm than good to their communities and hurt the poor.) The passage of Issue 4 is indicative of Arkansas voters becoming less socially 16

conservative, according to Cox. But he said this was in part due to voters being susceptible to expensive, deceptive advertising for Issue 4. “Advertising is very powerful, and voters need to be more astute in discerning what’s true and what’s not true,” Cox told the Arkansas Times. Much of that money — over $3 million — came from Delaware North, the parent company of Southland. The biggest single contributor, though, was the Downstream Development Authority of the Quapaw Tribe, which contributed at least $3.65 million to promote Issue 4. Cherokee Nation Businesses added another $2.28 million. The Quapaw are the favorites to win the permit in Jefferson County. The Cherokee were eyeing Pope County, but local opposition may derail their plans. Much is yet to be determined as Arkansas gears up for casinos. Here’s what we know so far, and what we don’t: What will change at Oaklawn and Southland, and when? At this point, the racetracks are holding their cards close to the vest. Both sent terse nonstatements to the Times when asked for comment. Oaklawn said it’s preparing for the 2019 horse racing season, which begins in January, and will “move forward as legislation and regulation permits.” South-

land didn’t offer much more: “We plan to increase our investment, provide more jobs and continue to offer a great experience for our guests. We’re still determining our expansion timeline and will have more to say about our specific plans in the coming months, but we will work with the state to add live table games at Southland as soon as is feasible,” a spokesman wrote by email. On Nov. 4, a Talk Business & Politics article quoted an executive at Delaware North as saying the Buffalo, N.Y., company planned to build a $200 million hotel and convention center in West Memphis should Issue 4 pass. Jack McNeill, a senior vice president of governmental affairs, said the investment would be “a priority.” Note, however, that that statement came immediately before the election. The amendment suggests the racetracks could go full casino as soon as mid-March. The Issue 4 ballot title says “Southland and Oaklawn do not have to apply for a license and will automatically receive a casino license upon the [racing] Commission adopting rules and regulations to govern casino gaming.” It also says the commission must have rules and regs promulgated within 120 days of the amendment’s passage, which is March 14. If the Hot Springs and West Memphis casinos are as successful as everyone seems to assume they’ll be, that raises the question of the future of their tracks themselves. Horse racing at Oaklawn isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, presumably. But the world of dog racing is rapidly disappearing. On Election Day, Florida

voters approved a measure ending greyhound racing in that state, which is home to 11 of the 17 remaining dog tracks in the U.S. In his interview with Talk Business, McNeill claimed Delaware North hasn’t discussed the possibility of discontinuing greyhound racing, but it’s hard to believe the multi-billion-dollar food service and hospitality company isn’t taking a hard look at the profitability of the track as it prepares to expand. How will the other two licenses be awarded? The state Racing Commission is tasked with awarding the Jefferson and Pope county permits. There are seven commissioners, each appointed by the governor, and the positions are unpaid except for a per diem for meetings and travel. The state Department of Finance and Administration provides staff for the commission. Gray said the application process will be merit-based: “They will pass rules and regs governing the application and licensing process, similar to what was done with medical marijuana. There will be an open application period, and qualified groups will submit applications, and the racing commission will score those applications and award permits.” If there should be more than one applicant for a site, it’s not yet clear how they’ll be graded. Those criteria will be part of the rules now being promulgated by the commission. The amendment does specify a few things: An applicant must have casino gaming experience and a letter of


local support and cannot have a felony conviction. Might the licenses get tied up in litigation if there are multiple applicants? After all, that’s what’s happened with medical cannabis. In February 2018, the medical marijuana commission scored dozens of applicants vying for just five cultivation licenses, a flawed process that led to multiple lawsuits, months of delays and accusations that the commissioners’ meritbased grading system was riddled with inconsistencies and conflicts of interest. That seems less likely to happen with the casino licenses. First, there probably won’t be large numbers of competitors jostling for the Jefferson or Pope county sites. Second, the medical marijuana commission was created from scratch in 2016, and its five members had no professional knowledge of medical cannabis and very little experience with regulation. “The racing commission has been around a long time. They are experienced, extremely qualified, and this is not their first rodeo in terms of acting responsibly,” Gray said.

for a Pine Bluff casino and restaurant could be close. It might take longer to complete the hotel portion of the project, Berrey said. The Quapaw-run casino would offer all gambling options, including a sports book, but Berrey said sports wagering is not a major focus of casino operation because it has a low profit margin. The Quapaw Tribe is a government, not a shareholder-owned corporation, Berrey emphasized. He said it would devote more to community development than a casino corporation driven strictly

by the bottom line. “We’re about building communities,” he said. “Our goal is to make it a better place for people to live.” Pine Bluff was briefly home to the Quapaw during the 19th century. The tribe occupied eastern Arkansas during prehistoric and historic times. Will Pope County hold the line? The situation in Pope County is complicated by the fact that the voters there don’t want a casino. Sixty percent of those casting ballots in the county voted

against Issue 4 in the election. And, 70 percent of Pope County voters approved an initiative that would bar the county judge or the quorum court from issuing a letter of support absent a local election that gives them the authority to do so. Issue 4 requires any applicant to obtain such a letter. But would a local option election be permissible, given that Issue 4 is now enshrined in the Arkansas Constitution? “Obviously, civics 101 says state law trumps local,” County Judge-elect Ben Cross told the Times. The issue is moot,

How soon can the Jefferson County casino get up and running? Though the amendment allows any would-be casino operator to seek a permit from the state, the Oklahoma-based Quapaw Tribe has been working with Pine Bluff officials for five years to gain approval of their bid. Quapaw Chair John Berrey said he hopes the tribe’s work with the city will help his group prevail in the permitting process. Berrey told the Times he hopes to file the tribe’s application by the end of April, to be “digging dirt” by June and to open a casino in Pine Bluff early in 2020. He said the group has an option on land on the southwest side of the city, but he wasn’t ready to reveal the precise location yet. Some land lies outside the city and would be voluntarily annexed. He said the tribe wants an orderly planning process and envisions developing some 180 to 220 acres initially. Berrey said it took 10 months to build a casino the tribe operates in Joplin, Mo., a development he said has been worth several billion dollars in associated economic activity to that city. If that construction timeline holds, his 2020 target QUAPAW CHAIRMAN JOHN BERREY: He says the tribe will invest more in community projects in Pine Bluff should it win approval for a casino there than would a shareholder-owned corporation focused on the bottom line.

WILL THE DOGS STILL RUN? That’s the question at Southland, which announced before the election it would spend $200 million on an upgrade of the West Memphis racino.

however, because Cross said he will not issue a letter of support “until the people of Pope County decide otherwise.” The quorum court has already expressed its opposition. As things stand now, then, it doesn’t appear that a casino will be built near Russellville anytime in the near future. Christopher Burks, the lawyer for Citizens for a Local Choice, a Pope County group that sought to throw Issue 4 off the ballot, noted that the amendment could be read as having contradictory language. It says licenses “shall be” issued for Jefferson and Pope counties, but that to be successful, an applicant must have a letter of support either from the county judge or the quorum court — and, if the casino is to be operated in a city, from the mayor of that city. Representatives of the Cherokee Nation met last summer with Cross. According to people familiar with the casino campaign, that wasn’t early enough to convince county leadership of the benefits of a casino. The Quapaw worked for five years gathering support in Jefferson County. The Cherokee interest in Pope County could be intended to stymie competition from the Choctaw Tribe, which operates a casino 15 minutes southwest of Fort 18

Smith. The Cherokees operate a casino in West Siloam Springs, on the Benton County border. What does the passage of Issue 4 mean for Indian gaming in other parts of Arkansas? Federal law says that lands held in trust for recognized tribes can be used for any type of gambling otherwise permitted elsewhere in the state. The Quapaw Tribe owns undeveloped land near the Little Rock Port. Should the tribe convince the federal government to designate that land as tribal trust land, it’s possible the Quapaw could build a casino there. City and county officials took a number of steps to prevent the Quapaws from doing that after they acquired the land. But Berrey said that putting land into trust “has become more and more difficult and political.” It requires approval of members of Congress, a governor and other local officials. “I just don’t see it happening,” he said. What will be the impact on state revenue and jobs? Don’t expect public coffers to see a big windfall in the near term, unless you live

in Garland or Crittenden counties. The state Department of Finance and Administration has projected general revenue will take a $36 million hit in the upcoming fiscal year as a result of Issue 4. Driving Arkansas Forward believes that number will rebound and then some within several years. Currently, Oaklawn and Southland are taxed at 20 percent on their net wagering revenues on “electronic games of skill.” The state takes 18 percent and city and county government take 2 percent. On top of that, an additional 15 percent is set aside for purse money (meaning prizes distributed to live racing winners) and support for the racing commission. After the racetracks obtain the new licenses under Issue 4, the 15 percent dedicated to purses and the racing commission will remain in place. But the total 20 percent rate paid to state and local government will decline to just 13 percent on the first $150 million of net wagering revenues. Of that 13 percent, a little over half will go to state general revenue and a little over a quarter will go to local governments. The rest will further fund racing purses. The tax rate rises to 20 percent again on any wagering revenues above $150 million. In short, that means more money for city and county government, more money for purse support (which bolsters the status of Arkansas as a racing destination), more money staying in the pockets of Oaklawn and Southland and less money for state general revenue. Right now, state general revenue receives about $64 million from the two racetracks. That will decrease to about $28 million in the next fiscal year, according to the DFA analysis. Garland and Crittenden counties, together with the cities of Hot Springs and West Memphis, will see a projected gain of about $7 million in that time. Gray said his group didn’t dispute that state general revenue will see a “temporary gap” before the new casinos come online. The big question is what happens after that. The first year all four casinos are operational, Driving Arkansas Forward said it anticipated a total of $120 million in total tax revenue, yielding $66 million for state general revenue, $33 million for local government and the rest for purse support. The DFA analysis didn’t take such a rosy view. Even once all the casinos are up and running, it projected state revenue would only stand at about $50 million, or $14 million less than the current take. Gray said Driving Arkansas Forward projects general revenue to increase thereafter. Five years after all the casinos are online, he said, general revenue

should reach $80 to $85 million. “But those projections were before Southland announced it was going to make a $200 million investment on its property, so I would assume that Southland will potentially exceed what was projected,” he added. Gray also noted state and local governments will also receive more sales, property and income taxes as a result of the casinos. As for jobs, Gray said a study commissioned by Driving Arkansas Forward estimated Issue 4 would generate about 8,000 construction jobs over the next 18 months. After construction is complete, he said, the casinos should sustain about 6,000 new positions statewide. Will new laws need to be passed? The passage of a new constitutional amendment often necessitates new legislation to flesh out the details. But Gray said he didn’t foresee the need for enabling legislation in the 2019 session, which begins in January. “I don’t really anticipate any legislation that would affect the amendment. The amendment was very detailed and very thorough in terms of who does what, and the racing commission has the authority to regulate casino gaming,” he said. In 2017, after Arkansas voted yes on medical marijuana, legislators put forward a host of bills tinkering around the edges of the amendment. Some were meant to slow down or derail the rollout of cannabis, but others were much needed clarifications to law. Gray said the situation is different with Issue 4. “I think the difference between medical marijuana and casinos is that marijuana was and still is a Schedule 1 drug, so there are some federal issues,” he said. Also, while medical marijuana laws are still fairly new, casinos have been operating in many states for decades. “So, I really don’t think you’ll see the same sort of reaction,” he said. State Rep. Doug House (R-North Little Rock), who sponsored a number of 2017 bills aimed at fixing issues with the marijuana amendment, said he’s heard “loose talk” among some members about passing oversight legislation related to Issue 4. “It’s just discussion at this point. There’s no clear formulation of issues,” House said. The main concern for the legislature and the governor, he added, is addressing the $36 million state budget shortfall expected to result from the tax break given to Oaklawn and Southland.

ZOE JETT’S WHIMSICAL, FEMINIST FIBER ART If you know someone who’d appreciate a “send nudes” wall hanging this holiday season, look no further than the online shop of Zoe Jett. Jett is a Little Rock native earning her B.F.A. at Memphis College of Art, and her shop is a veritable treasure trove of delightfully designed, intricately crafted stitchings. Her calming, hand-dyed and embroidered free-hand stitchings of sea landscapes are pricey — they’re $150 each for 8-by-12-inch canvases — but her small cross-stitch hoops boasting phrases such as “Girls Gone Mild,” “Fuck Off” and the seasonally relevant “God Is Dead” are only $15 each (“send nudes” is a bit pricier, at $20). She also offers a selection of cozy bottles, bowls and planters wrapped in fuzzy yarn at varying prices, and in the coyly titled “Crochet” section of her shop, you’ll find the handcrocheted strap-on you never knew you needed at the reasonable price of $25. Her work is for sale through the shop’s website, and she also commissions custom pieces. Check out her artwork at zoejett.com or follow her on Instagram at @zoejett. —Rebekah Hall 20

A&E NEWS The Arkansas Repertory Theatre announced Tuesday that “Chicago” will be the opening show of its 2019-20 “Rebuild the Rep” season. Bob Fosse and Fred Ebbs’ jazz age feat of razzle-dazzle marks the return of The Rep to a regular season of theatrical programming 10 months after it suspended its operations in April due to funding shortages.

2018 NORTHERN LIGHTS FESTIVAL IN NORTH LITTLE ROCK NOVEMBER 24 • 5-7PM • FREE TREE LIGHTING CEREMONY

With trees lining both sides of Main Street from North Little Rock Chamber of Commerce at 100 Main Street to 7th Street. Organized by City of North Little Rock, Argenta Arts District, Argenta Community Theater, North Little Rock Chamber and North Little Rock Convention & Visitors Bureau. Meet costumed cast members from the production of Charles Dicken’s A Christmas Carol now showing at the Argenta Community Theater!

“The community responded,” Board Chairwoman Ruth Shepherd said in a press release about the season. “Since April, we have received more than $875,000 in donations, which the John and Robyn Horn Foundation and the Windgate Charitable Foundation have matched. We have a plan to rebuild The Rep as a stronger organization that will serve our community and state long into the future.” Who might succeed former Rep Artistic Director John Miller-Stephany, who stepped down May 8, along with most other staff members? Shepherd told the Arkansas Times on Tuesday that the search for a director is “ongoing,” and that an announcement would be made “in the next couple of months.” The Rep is joining the city of Little Rock in paying homage to founding Director Cliff Fannin Baker by designating the alley behind the 377-seat theater as “Baker’s Alley.” Baker died Sept. 6 after suffering a brain aneurysm. At the time of Baker’s death, Bill Rector, board member and interim general manager, said in a statement issued by The Rep: “Cliff’s counsel has been invaluable these past four months. And when we announce our new season, you will recognize Cliff’s influence in our choices of productions. As we get this theatre back on solid ground, The Rep will be a testimony to the gift that Cliff gave to all of us.” That rebuilding begins with “Chicago,” directed and choreographed by longtime resident Rep choreographer Ron Hutchins, Feb. 22-March 4. Latinx Theatre Commons founder Karen Zacarias’ “Native Gardens” follows, April 17-May 5. Next, Hunter Foster directs “Million Dollar Quartet,” the jukebox musical inspired by Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins, Sept. 4-Oct. 6. For the Christmas season, Joe Landry’s “It’s A Wonderful Life: A Radio Play,” goes up, Dec. 4-22. Anna Kimmell, who leads the theater’s education department, will direct The Rep’s production of “Willy Wonka Jr.” June 21-30. Season tickets are on sale at 501-3780405, and single ticket sales open in January.

When fingerstyle guitarist Ian Ethan Case composed his latest album — a suite for cello, percussion, flute, strings and trombone — he found himself in a bit of a logistic conundrum. Tours are expensive. Even though Case performed the double-neck guitar/live looping compositions as a solo act, and even though it was a family affair, with his wife, Stephanie Case, as his live sound engineer, the idea of performing “Earth Suite” with all 12 musicians live in listening rooms across the globe was daunting. “But I really wanted people to hear these incredibly unique, one-of-a-kind instrumentalists,” Case said in his bio. “I also really want people to hear these songs the way they’re meant to be heard, with the full orchestration.” And, invention’s mother being who she is, the Cases invented. The product of their ingenuity is “Portals,” in which Case is joined by his colleagues via large video projections, each musician playing their part in synchronicity with Case. I can’t think of a more intimate listening room for this sonic experiment; The Joint is designed in such a way that there’s not really a bad seat.

Yes, you can see artwork at the venues of the monthly after-hours gallery stroll, but you can make it, too, at the Arkansas Regional Innovation Hub. There, for $15 (advance) or $20 (at the door) you can go to town thanks to the Hub’s equipment. Make Christmas totes and T-shirts and gift tags. Paint on laser-cut or clay ornaments. Make wrapping paper and gift boxes. Play a virtual reality Christmas game! That’s all happening at the Hub. The gallery scene includes work by iconoclastic Fayetteville artist Gregory Moore, whose “Lost Cat” series told the story of a cat haunted by memories of its past and whose “Portraits of Courage” series highlighted U.S. soldiers who refused to fight in Iraq on moral grounds, sales of which benefited Iraq Veterans Against the War. His show “Found Objects” opens at the Argenta Gallery (413 Main St.). Musician/ photographer Joshua Asante’s show, “My Selves in Constant Dissonance/My Selves in Perfect Harmony,” continues at the Thea Foundation (410 Main St.). Greg Thompson Fine Art opens its “Holiday Show” of works by Arkansas and regional artists and the Argenta Branch of the Laman Library features works by Little Rock figurative painter Greg Lahti. Impressionist Barry Thomas will be painting in his studio (711 Main St.) for art walkers; refresh yourself with a beer at Core Brewery (411 Main St.) and check out the Latino Art Project show. LNP

Mark 2009 down as the year a major edit was made to the already-astonishing story of composer Florence Price. Until that point, Price — the 1903 valedictorian of Capitol Hill School in Little Rock and the first African-American woman to pen a composition that would be played by a major orchestra — was thought to have penned only one violin concerto. While restoring an abandoned house in St. Anne, Ill., a couple named Vicki and Darrell Gatwood unearthed Price’s second concerto, the discovery of which has generated a revival of enthusiasm for Price’s legacy. Enter violinist and University of Arkansas at Fayetteville educator Er-Gene Kahng who, this weekend, will reprise her world premiere performance of Price’s “Violin Concerto No. 2” with the up-and-comers of the Arkansas Symphony Youth Orchestra. Expect to see firsthand what it looks like when a throng of aspiring musicians plays a piece that affirms for them that there’s still mystery to be excavated from classical repertoire, and expect to be surprised at the level of student musicianship in the ASYO ensemble; the top group is audition-only and is made up of the best young string, woodwind, brass and percussion players in the state. And, in further celebration of the classical music world’s Rosie the Riveters: Joan Tower’s answer to Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man — titled “Sixth Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman” — is also on the program, along with Jose Pablo Moncayo’s “Huapango” and George Gershwin’s “Lullaby” for strings.

‘50TH COLLECTORS SHOW AND SALE’ Arkansas Arts Center.

The tab for the artworks at the Arts Center’s annual Collectors show is a bit more dear than the items you’ll buy at the Museum School Sale — prices range from $750 to $115,000 — but that’s because the New York galleries that supply the show and sale send such items as Old Master drawings, midcentury famed folk to contemporary works, including wearable jewelry. The work was chosen by the members of the Arts Center’s Collectors Group, who selected the 150 pieces in the exhibition after viewing more than 1,000 works of art from galleries in the Big Apple. Fans of hyperrealism will enjoy David Morrison’s drawing of a brown leaf in colored pencil; Orientalist-style fans will want to check out Frederick Arthur Bridgman’s study of an Assyrian archer. Susan Grossman’s minimalist black, white and gray paintings have gotten write-ups in “Art News” and the Wall Street Journal. Center members will be welcome at an exclusive show viewing and brunch from 9-11 a.m. Dec. 1; the show runs through Jan. 6. LNP

At 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day in 1976, 5,000 people were served turkey dinners at San Francisco’s Winterland Ballroom. Traditionalist prelude notwithstanding, the evening would progress into The Band’s “last waltz” of a swan song — a marathon bacchanale of rock ’n’ roll with Martin Scorsese and a helm (!) of acclaimed cinematographers there to document the whole cocainefueled affair. In a fundraiser for 88.3-FM, KABF community radio, a host of Little Rock’s own rock ’n’ rollers pay tribute to the (in)famous concert: Amy Garland, The Salty Dogs, Gil Franklin, John Good, Charlotte Taylor, Justin Booth, Bluesboy Jag & The

Move over, Northwest Arkansas: The first 14 miles of a planned 44.6-mile mountain biking trail system in northern Hot Springs is opening to the public this Saturday. The new trails sit on the 2,000 acres that make up the Northwoods property north of Whittington Avenue — owned by the city, largely untouched and closed to the public since Sept. 11, 2001. Tom and Steuart Walton and the Walton Family Foundation partnered with Visit Hot Springs to construct the first 16-mile segment of the project, and when phase two of that project comes to completion, the trails in the Northwoods Urban Forest Park will wind past three lakes originally built as drinking-water reservoirs: 13-acre Lake Bethel, 24-acre Lake Dillon and 28-acre Lake Sanderson. Along with the IMBA-certified-”epic” Womble Trail, Ouachita National Recreational Trail and Lake Ouachita Vista Trail, it’s expected to draw mountain bikers from afar. Lucky for you, you get first dibs: This Saturday at noon, a public ribbon cutting opens the park, followed by a group ride through the Northwoods, live music by Brian Martin of Sad Daddy, food trucks, vendors, family-friendly activities and workshops in bike skills and maintenance. At 8 a.m. Sunday morning, an Attila the Hun Bike Race kicks off from the Cedar Glades Trail Head. A pre-grand opening party happens at 4:30 p.m. Friday evening at Spa City Cycling (873 Park Avenue), followed by a 5:30 p.m. “slow roll” through Park Avenue and Whittington Boulevard and a BBQ after-party at Low Key Arts, 6 p.m. SS TWO WHEELS, TWO THOUSAND ACRES: IMBA Trails Solutions contractor Josh Olson demonstrates a jump feature along the Northwoods bike trail system in Hot Springs, opening to the public this weekend.

‘TAMPOPO’

7 p.m. Riverdale 10 Cinema. $9.

Juzo Itami’s 1985 “ramen Western” — perhaps the best food movie of all time — is next up in our Arkansas Times Film Series. It’s a gorgeous paean to the twin desires of hunger and lust, a takedown of culinary elitism and a hymn to care of craft all wrapped in a package of loosely related vignettes. I love this movie because it’s simultaneously goofy and transcendent — a hymn to human appetite and a cinematic Michelin Star meal that goes down the gullet so easily its two-hour runtime feels like a fleeting moment. The Arkansas Times Film Series is presented in partnership with Film Quotes Film and Riverdale 10 Cinema, and you can buy advance tickets at riverdale10.com. SS 24

Things I love about Nashville heavy rockers Yautja include, but are not limited to, the following: three-person band, six-person magnitude. Every single band member sings. Like the alien race of “Predator” lore from which they take their name, Yautja possesses super-advanced technolog y (here, cabinets upon cabinets, amps upon amps, effects upon effects). They employ sudden math-y time signature pivots and manage to stay surgically precise about them. Lastly, these dudes are cobbling a living out of performing music and still manage to dedicate 100 percent of digital sales from Yautja’s 2017 album, “Dead Soil,” to Community Advocates and Women’s Centers of Milwaukee and Nashville, with the number for The National Domestic Violence Hotline listed in its digital liner notes. The trio’s bound to slay at this Vino’s show, and the fact that Little Rock heavy hitters Crankbait and Terminal Nation (along with a new Fayetteville trio called Bones of the Earth) open the show makes it pretty much mandatory that you don’t wait ’til Yautja takes the stage to arrive.

Dining WHAT’S COOKIN’

The Rail Yard, the East Village knockoff of the Texas Truck Yard in Dallas, will hold its grand opening from 4-9 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15, at 1212 E. Sixth St. The venture by three Little Rock women, which opened softly to the Progressive Arkansas Women’s PAC on election night for its watch party, includes the brick-and-mortar home of food truck Count Porkula BBQ and food trucks in rotation. Thursday’s official opening will feature music, games and food trucks Say Cheese (featuring gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches) and Pinches Tacos authentic Mexican food outside and barbecue and drinks inside. Sisters-inlaw Murry and Linda Newbern and their cousin Virginia Ann Young conceived The Rail Yard after they visited the popular Dallas food-truck-surrounded beer garden. Count Porkula will feature 10 beers on tap, including local craft brews from Lost Forty, Flyway, Rebel Kettle, Diamond Bear, Ozark and Core. Hours will be 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Dos Rocas Beer and Tacos, a project of Root owners Jack Sundell and Corri Bristow Sundell and longtime Root kitchen manager Cesar Bordon-Avalos and his wife, Adelia Kittrell, was to have a soft opening Tuesday night, after the Times went to press. The restaurant, at 1220 S. Main St., will feature farmto-table Latin American street food; Sundell has described it as an “indoor taco truck.” It will also have craft beers on tap and margaritas. The name derives from Bordon’s hometown in Paraguay, Ita, which in Guarani (the national language of Paraguay and its indigenous people) means rock. So Bordon’s rock plus Little Rock equals two rocks, or Dos Rocas to Spanish speakers. Dos Rocas’ neighbor, Atlas Bar at 1224 Main St., still has brown paper on the windows, preventing us from getting a peek at progress. The bar, the venture of world traveler Tony Poe, does give hints to its interior on Facebook, with photographs of its red leather bar stools. Perhaps you noticed new food truck Delta Biscuits parked at Proof Bar + Lounge last Sunday and wondered where you could catch it next. Hayne Begley’s “biscuitcentric” food truck, will next appear at the Electric Cooperatives of Arkansas office at 1 81st St., 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15; the food truck-arts-crafts-music festival Trucksgiving in Pottsville at 6876 U.S. Highway 64, noon-4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17; and the Rail Yard from noon-4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 18.

MOVIE REVIEW

AWESOME, BUT NOT EXACTLY GOOD: Chris Pine and Florence Pugh star in “Outlaw King,” the new biopic of Robert the Bruce.

An interim fix

‘Outlaw King’ will get you by until the new ‘Game of Thrones’ comes out. BY SAM EIFLING

S

cotland’s contributions to cinema peaked in the ’90s with two films that scarred their respective viewers forever: “Trainspotting,” possibly the funniest, darkest movie about heroin addiction; and “Braveheart,” a medieval quasi-historical battlefield epic in which splattering gore and Mel Gibson’s attempt at a William Wallace accent were only slightly more jarring than Renton diving into the Worst Toilet in Scotland. Was “Braveheart” a good movie, in hindsight? No, but that doesn’t stop it from being an awesome movie, and its long shadow gives context to “Outlaw King,” the new biopic of Robert the Bruce, a contemporary of Wallace’s. You can stream it on Netflix right now, or if you’re some sort of feudal lord, see it in limited release in theaters. Is it a good movie? Not particularly, 28

NOVEMBER 15, 2018

ARKANSAS TIMES

no. But is it kind of awesome, at least? Yeah, you could say so. And in this long lull between “Game of Thrones” seasons, it’s gratifying to watch Chris Pine as the king of Scotland trying to outflank the English throne in the early 1300s, a guerilla freedom fighter swinging a broadsword and trying not to end up like Wallace, as we see him here: drawn and quartered, with a head on a pike, for rebelling against England’s Edward I. But you still gotta free Scotland, man, so Bruce has to pull some gangster shit and play cat-and-mouse with the crown for a couple of hours. Notable for our current political era: As the stakes ratchet up, both sides quietly swear off “chivalry.” “Outlaw King” does bring your guilty-pleasure throwback action films to the 21st century with a few key innovations. Drone photogra-

phy, for one, soaring over valleys and mountains, making you feel like you’re in a Scotch commercial with an unlimited budget. A strong female lead in Rebecca Robin, playing Bruce’s young English wife, who insists convincingly that she be a full partner in their arranged marriage (and then gets tempest-tossed as a damsel in distress, but still). For what it’s worth, too, we’re at the stage in coloring where post-production can make everyone’s blue eyes look like LEDs, and red blood smeared down pale faces look positively garish. Maybe you’re here for the sketchy history lesson, though presumably you also have access to Wikipedia, or for the Chris Pine full-frontal nudity, or for the period costumes (hope you like off-white tunics set against overcast skies). Or you’re here for battlefield ultraviolence. Director David Mackenzie (“Hell or High Water”) treats combat, especially at the climactic Loudoun Hill, as a muddy, gory, exhausting slog, and achieves an effect that can stand alongside “Braveheart” or, hell, “Saving Private Ryan” in its intensity and realism. The sensation of hunkering behind a

spear-lined berm as the English calvary cascades over — impaling horses, tossing knights — remains the most resonant moment in the film. And after the battle, affectingly, soldiers sit and weep. What you’ll miss in this fairly compact 90 minutes is simple reprieve. How about a joke here and there, eh? Playing Edward I, you do get a deliciously cranky Stephen Dillane (Stannis Baratheon from “Game of Thrones,” for your mini-fix), who browbeats his too-eager would-be despotic son, also an Edward (Billy Howle), but without many laugh lines. Characters rarely sit down and talk with one another, so it’s difficult in a sense to get to know them. If there’s one overriding frustration to muddle through in “Outlaw King,” it’s that you could get through it and never have much of a sense of Bruce himself. Reserved, hard-fighting, magnanimous, courageous, sure. But how does he think about the world? What are the stories he tells? Does he have an inner world, or is he just an accretion of noble qualities? No time to find out. The English are coming on horseback. We’ve got ditches to dig.

DUMAS, CONT. tive damages to $1 million, but the Lonoke judge said that provision was unconstitutional. Goodson and her colleagues unanimously agreed. There was really no question. The Constitution says flatly that the legislature can’t enact a law limiting the amount people can receive for injuries to person or property. Moreover, the state’s old 1874 charter literally roars about the right of everyone to be compensated for harm to person or property: “Every person is entitled to a certain remedy in the laws for all remedies or wrongs he may receive in his person, property or character; he ought to obtain justice freely, and without purchase, completely, and without denial, promptly and without delay … .” Soon after Goodson’s tort opinion, a family in Faulkner County sued one of Michael Morton’s nursing homes for failing to provide doctor-ordered hospital care for their mother, who died in excruciating pain, and the jury awarded them $5.2 million. The Republican judge, Mike Maggio, set aside $4.2 million of the judgment

against Morton (his insurance covered the $1 million) and then went to prison last year for taking a bribe arranged by a state Republican official to do it. Asa Hutchinson, running for governor in 2014 with a big Republican majority in the legislature, vowed to pass a constitutional amendment to give the legislature the power to curtail sizable monetary judgments against businesses, hospitals and doctors. The legislature last year put the amendment on the 2018 ballot but loaded it up with so much extraneous stuff favorable to defendants that the Supreme Court last month struck it from the ballot for violating a clear constitutional mandate against logrolling. The only justice who voted to keep the tort amendment on the ballot was the court’s avowed Republican, Shawn Womack, a former senator who sponsored the defunct 2003 tort law. Goodson still has her job, but another chapter begins next month, when the Republican-dominated legislature reassembles with a reinvigorated governor.

This list is excerpted from the 2019 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 145 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 2019 edition of Best Lawyers is based on more than 7.8 million evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.

The nomination pool for the 2019 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.

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.
