Movie Review - ‘Neighbors’

Every few years, something so jarring, so very traumatizing occurs that it shakes a wide swath of America to its very core and causes many of us to re-evaluate everything we thought we knew about the world.

Movie Review - ‘Transcendence’

Although it never really moves beyond anything you’ve seen before, there’s a very good reason to plunk down your hard-earned money to see “Transcendence”: Johnny Depp sheds all of his quirks and affectations.

Movie Review - ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’

Prepare to be transported to an era when staying in a hotel was considered exotic, romantic, even something of an adventure, and not just another sleepless night because you can’t stop worrying about the potential for bedbugs or who did what to whom on that bedspread that keeps brushing up against your lower lip.

Movie Review - ‘Gimme Shelter’

If a Lifetime movie had a one-night stand with a Hallmark Hall of Fame presentation, and their Afterschool Special love child were weaned on a steady diet of “Teen Mom,” “Davey and Goliath” and “Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire,” it might grow up to look a little something like “Gimme Shelter.”

Arkansas has seven constitutional officers: governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, secretary of state, treasurer, auditor and land commissioner. In the past year, two of them, first Treasurer Martha Shoffner and then Lt. Gov. Mark Darr, have been forced to resign due to financial improprieties.

Higher job satisfaction leads to better economy

To paraphrase Tolstoy, every successful small business shares the same traits. And they all begin with high-quality employees. I’m thinking of three local establishments where I’ve traded for years: an auto repair garage, a dentist’s office, and a one-size-fits-all country store where I buy cattle and horse feed.
