GREG HARTON: Such a waste

Landfill expansion points to need to recycle, reduce

The probable expansion of the privately operated Eco-Vista Landfill, owned and lovingly named by Waste Management, is a testament to our region's normalcy.

GREG HARTON: A beautiful day

First U2 concert a bucket list experience

Anyone walking into my office Friday was likely to get a dose of U2, the Irish band that's been rocking with the same four members -- Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr. -- since 1976.

GREG HARTON: A taxing proposition

Preserving natural areas can hurt schools, library, taxpayers

Could a city's desire to preserve natural space end up costing taxpayers more or do harm to local schools?

GREG HARTON: Peeping Mark?

GREG HARTON: Triggering solutions

GREG HARTON: A Democrat, for governor?

Henderson faces long odds in pursuit of state’s top job

One would hardly invite ridicule if he was to bet on a Republican victory in the race for Arkansas governor this fall. Given the recent trend line in state politics -- all seven constitutional officers, the six federal representatives and the majority of the state Legislature are GOP members -- and the fact Arkansas convincingly voted for Donald Trump two years ago, it's hard not to bet on the incumbent party.
