One week from today, Arkansas voters will have a choice between two-term incumbent Sen. Blanche Lincoln and her long record of corporate coziness or Lt. Gov. Bill Halter and his progressive agenda based on the interests of working families. The June 8 U.S. Senate Democratic primary run-off is firing up working families and union voters across the state. These are the same voters who mobilized and turned what was supposed to a Lincoln slam-dunk in the Senate primary to a near dead heat race and ultimate  run-off election. Lincoln lost working family support over her votes to send jobs overseas and support bad trade deals . She ...
A rare spontaneous moment | Arkansas News
It provided a view of political spontaneity, now nearly extinct in this tightly controlled era of what the consultants call “message discipline.” From a center-row table about three-fourths of the way back in the great hall that Janet Huckabee built, I peered straight ahead at the speaker, Tim Griffin. He’s the Republican candidate for Congress in the 2nd District who was an operative for the national Republican Party and later a deputy in the George W. Bush White House toiling under Karl Rove. Conservatives love him. Democrats detest or fear him. At the table directly in front of me — in the foreground of the speaker — sat ... market research, surveys and trends
2010 Hypewatch: Does This Year's Arkansas Team Equal Last Year's ...
a ridiculously stocked array of skill players + an acknowledged offensive mastermind for a head coach will do that (even if certain other aspects of the team are, shall we say, unproven). But, as you also know, the immutable law of hype is that what comes up must come down, and after a team has been pumped up enough the required next step is to begin saying they're overrated.

Yes, the word on the street ... market research, surveys and trends

Right to Work is Under Siege
arlier this year Ray Bacon, executive director of the Nevada Manufacturers Association, expressed concern over the future of Nevada’s right-to-work law.

Caring for veterans: An interview with Glenn Costie
My interest to work in health care started at an early age. My mother worked in the laboratory of our hospital and my first summer job was working in the dietetics department at the same hospital.

My uncle also works in the VA Health Care System as a chaplain. So between my family involvement and my love for history and what our service men and women have done for our country, working in the VA system was a natural calling. How does ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
