    Bernie Sanders was hospitalized today for "chest discomfort" and it was discovered he had blockage in 2 of his coronary arteries. The doctors placed a couple of stents in the arteries and Sanders should be okay in a couple of days.But the 78-year-old Sanders is making Democrats nervous. It appears that Democrats have finally realized their top three candidates aren't exactly spring chickens and that they risk much by placing their faith in a candidate who, despite apparent good health, might have an "incident" at any time, making them vulnerable to charges that they're just too old.The Hill: Former...

    An Arkansas woman who filed a paternity lawsuit against Joe Biden’s son Hunter claimed in court documents that Hunter “verbally admitted” to her that he is the father of her 1-year-old child. Lunden Roberts, 28, first filed the petition for paternity and support against 49-year-old Hunter in May. She has refused to comment publicly about the matter but said in court filings that Hunter acknowledged paternity of the child, according to the Daily Mail. In a motion for DNA testing filed in Independence County Circuit Court, through her lawyer Roberts alleged that “[Hunter] has verbally admitted to the plaintiff that...

    A tractor-trailer hauling 38,000 pounds of raw Tyson chicken caught fire early Friday morning on Interstate 40, blocking all the interstate's westbound lanes for a time, according to the Ozark Fire Department. Fire Chief Nick Trotter said the driver was able to disconnect the tractor from the trailer and was not injured. No other injuries were reported either. The department responded to the call just after 3 a.m. near exit 37 on westbound I-40 in Franklin County, Trotter said. The driver told firefighters he had seen sparks coming from the back of the trailer and then the tires caught fire.

    Hillary Clinton’s Arkansas law license has been reinstated after 17 years of suspension. No word as yet on the significance of that. A recent routine notice of reinstatements and suspensions by the Arkansas Continuing Legal Education Board said Clinton was one of several lawyers reinstated by the board at a meeting March 4 after payment of a reinstatement fee. Another familiar name on the list was that of Rodney Slater, Transportation secretary during the Clinton administration. He was reinstated March 5. Clinton’s license was suspended in March 2002 for failure to complete continuing education requirements. Having been admitted to the...

    The Quapaw Nation’s Downstream Development Authority is keeping good on their promise to ramp up hiring for the Indian tribe’s trucking stop annex in Pine Bluff, launching efforts during and after the Labor Day weekend to fill “hard to fill” casino positions from a steady pool of applicants. In Little Rock, the Downstream management and human resources officials are working with private and government workforce groups to hire workers for the Saracen Casino Q-Store, which will be located at the Pine Bluff trucking stop on land purchased by the Quapaw Nation business entity. One of those groups, the nonprofit Arkansas...

    A first-draft plan for Arkansas roadway spending shows lane additions to the Greenwood bypass and Arkansas 22 between Charleston and Fort Smith, as well as potential Interstate 49 construction in the Fort Smith area. Dubbed the CAP-2 draft by the Arkansas Department of Transportation, the Connecting Arkansas Program-2 list is a “data driven” starting point work that will largely be contingent on the continuation of a half-percent sales tax next year, according to ARDOT spokesperson Danny Straessle. “The governor proposes to make it permanent,” Straessle said. “This is a list of about 20 years of work.” In a recent meeting,...

    Time was running out for Debra Stevens. But the 911 dispatcher didn’t seem concerned. “Somebody save me!” Stevens screamed as the water level crept up inside her car, which was stranded in floodwater. “I don’t know why you’re freaking out,” the dispatcher, Donna Reneau, responded. “I’m going to die,” Stevens cried later. “Yeah, I know,” Reneau said. Stevens did die, but only after the dispatcher told the Fort Smith, Ark., woman to “shut up,” chastised her for worrying that the phone call would cut off and berated her for driving into water — water the frantic flood victim swore she...

    An odd little story surfaced this week over President Trump’s idea about buying Greenland. For some reason, a Republican senator felt the need to let some constituents in on a fact not previously reported on – he was the one who had the idea in the first place a year ago.Senator Tom Cotton was back home in Arkansas Wednesday and attended a luncheon hosted by an Arkansas-based news website. The inaugural Talk Business & Politics Power Lunch at the Red & Blue Events Center in Little Rock, Arkansas produced an interesting tidbit from Senator Cotton. When asked about the...

    Aug. 21 (UPI) -- A visitor to Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas found a 3.72-carat yellow diamond, the largest diamond found at the park in over two years. Miranda Hollingshead, 27, of Bogata, Texas, said she was sitting at the base of a hill on the northeast side of the park and watching a YouTube video on her phone about how to find diamonds when she looked down and spotted the gem. "I shook my hand across it to make sure what it was, picked it up, and yelled across the field to my mom, 'I think I...

    The construction of Walmart’s new corporate campus in Bentonville will take years to be achieved, and is just now in the early stages of development. On Wednesday (Aug. 14), company officials provided a glimpse into what some elements of that design may one day look like. Walmart held a grand opening for its new contact center at 2800 S. Thompson St. in Springdale. Employees have been working there for the past three weeks, following the completion of a massive remodel of a 130,000-square-foot building that was once a Sam’s Club store. It was most recently a layout center for Sam’s...

    White House hopeful Beto O'Rourke visited an Arkansas gun show Saturday to talk with firearm owners and vendors about solutions to tackle gun violence. The visit comes one day after O'Rourke released a plan proposing a slate of gun control reforms and two weeks after a mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, where O'Rourke represented in Congress from 2013 to 2019. "At the show, Beto listened to voters - including many Republicans who voted for Trump in 2016 - about their thoughts on gun safety. In order to make progress, Beto believes we have to meet people where they are,...

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (CN) — The federal judge who temporarily blocked enforcement of Arkansas abortion restrictions extended her order Tuesday while a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the laws proceeds through court. U.S. District Judge Kristine Baker in Little Rock issued a preliminary injunction hours before her two-week temporary restraining order was set to expire. The July 23 restraining order was issued the day before the new laws were to take effect. Tuesday’s 186-page order found the three laws that include a ban on abortion after 18 weeks of pregnancy would cause “ongoing and imminent irreparable harm.” The judge also...

    An Arkansas town council recently joined a growing list of U.S. cities that are taking a stand against abortion. The Arkansas Democrat Gazette reports the Springdale City Council Committee of the Whole voted unanimously Monday to adopt the pro-life statement. The full city council plans to vote on the measure Aug. 13. The statement declares Springdale to be a pro-life city. It also tells the abortion chain Planned Parenthood that it is not welcome there, according to the report. Though the statement does not have any legal weight, it sends a message that Springdale supports life, said council member Colby...

    At 1%, Muslims are still a small percentage of the population. But there’s one place in America where they are vastly over-represented. State prisons. Take Maryland, which has an estimated 70,000 Muslims, making up over 1% of the population. But of Maryland's 18,562 prisoners, 5,084 were Muslims. That's 27.4% or over 1 in 4 prisoners. It would also mean that 1 out of 13 Muslims in Maryland may have been in a state prison. Those are startling numbers, yet they come from Muslim Advocates, an Islamist legal advocacy group. Both MA’s numbers and the number of Muslims in different states...
