    There are so many things to be worried about this time of year, not the very least of which is the skyrocketing Covid-19 cases in Madison County, the State of Arkansas and the United States.

    I’m writing this column the week of Thanksgiving, knowing that our holiday will be smaller as we won’t be getting together with our larger family. My foreboding is that this is indicative of Christmas too, another pandemic holiday with less celebration.

    Danny and Dawn Curtis always wanted a large family. They already had two sons when they saw a photo album of Arkansas children in foster care waiting to be adopted. They fell in love with the picture of a young girl and learned that she had three brothers. After much discussion and prayer, they adopted the sibling group and turned their family of four into a family of eight.

    It seems as if we’ve been here before. As Yogi Berra famously said, “It’s deja vu all over again.”

    I have no doubt that Madison County officials, when asked, are ready to respond with a list of issues that concern the county. Attorney General Leslie Rutledge has taken it upon herself to be that person, the one asking what issues face our county, by scheduling a roundtable discussion with county leaders that was to take place on Tuesday morning.

    In previous columns, I have addressed voter fraud myths and reality. However, in this column, I will be focusing on post-election issues and future election solutions. There is no doubt that several concerning issues will arise after this election. There will be problems in the processing of mail-in and Election Day votes, honest mistakes as well as partisan election officials making slanted decisions, allegations as well as actual election fraud, and inequality in elections administered across the nation.

    feel like I have a massive hangover, although I didn’t have one single thing to drink on election night. From what I gather, many others feel the same way.

    Cases of Covid-19 are spiking. Hospitalizations of people with Covid-19 are at an all-time high in the state. The Arkansas Department of Health sent recommendations to Gov. Asa Hutchinson suggesting the state implement a 28-day pause, which would include allowing no gatherings of more than 10 people, among other requirements. The department also recommended local enforcement of the state mask mandate.

    On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the fighting of World War I ended in 1918. Due to the conclusion of the “War to end all Wars,” November 11 became a universally recognized day of celebration.

    On Veterans Day (Nov. 11), we pause to honor the selfless sacrifice of the men and women who wore our nation’s uniform and renew our obligation to care for these brave individuals. They’ve given their best to our nation and deserve our best in return. An important part of this mission is providing timely and quality healthcare. It is exciting to see improvements for these services in Arkansas and it is something I continue to focus on in the U.S. Senate.

    When we talk about ways to foster long-term economic growth, ensuring that Arkansans are prepared for well-paying jobs must be among our top concerns. Career and technical schools offer specialized training that prepares students for careers in skilled trades, applied sciences and more. We are blessed to have a number of exceptional programs in Arkansas that put students on the path to future success.

    As I write this column on Tuesday, I’m in Washington, D.C. Lots of windows in the city and door fronts are boarded up, stores are closed, the streets are quiet for now, hotels are empty. I flew up here and had layovers in quiet airports with no retail or restaurants open.

    I think a hearty congratulations needs to go out to all those who worked during the General Election cycle, from early voting to counting absentee ballots to working at one of Madison County’s voting centers.
  • Wednesday, October 28, 2020 9:00 AM
    In an op-ed letter to The New York Times, Michael Ho called out then candidate Donald Trump for saying large scale voter fraud is happening. In a previous op-ed, I addressed the voter fraud impact. So this op-ed I want to address why voter fraud is being minimized factually.

    Both of my daughters, who are either out of state working or attending college, voted using an absentee ballot. Several other family members also chose to vote absentee rather than early. I voted early. Many of my friends are voting in person on Election Day. Whose vote should not get counted?

    A week from now we’ll know the outcome of next Tuesday’s General Election. I get the feeling we won’t know the official results for the job of president. If we do it will be very late at night. The race between incumbent Donald Trump and his challenger, former Vice President Joe Biden, may take a while to determine.

    We’ve been friends for years. Our kids grew up together and are close friends. We were in each other’s weddings. They are lifelong Republicans and work hard for many state and federal Republican candidates. Politically, we think differently.

    Those of us in the media these days work doubly hard to keep our reputations in check, both on an individual level and the product we work for.
  • Wednesday, October 14, 2020 9:00 AM
    The courageous tradition of public safety is carried out by Arkansans who are dedicated to maintaining law and order. It takes a special person to put his or her life on the line every day to serve and protect a community. We are fortunate to have some of the very best law enforcement officers in the Natural State. Across the country we’ve seen attacks against law enforcement officers. Tragically, this has recently touched our state.
  • Wednesday, October 14, 2020 9:00 AM
    President Donald Trump’s constant bombast has most everyone focused on national races. But Madison County has several local races on the ballot that don’t need to be overlooked. One is between incumbent Constable Tyler Morgan and his challenger, Wes Walters, for South Constable, an area in and around St. Paul. Morgan has been constable in that township for four years.
