Police DWI crackdown plans could stifle Independence spirit

There are a few things in life on which we all can depend; the sun will come up tomorrow; you will owe taxes (even if you should make the mistake of choosing not to pay them); and when a special holiday hits on the calendar Arkansas authorities will crack down on drunk driving.

For some, divorce can be a private Independence Day

Fireworks can be a sign of celebration. Special events such as the annual marking of our country's independence, which is just days off, tend to warrant such displays. Rounds of oohs and ahhs are sure to be heard wherever you catch the pyrotechnics.

I'm named 'personal representative' in a will. What does it mean?

A loved one or close friend has just died. If the person had foresight to create an estate plan, a personal representative is probably named in the will. If no will exists, it may be known that the deceased had someone in mind to serve in this capacity and so the court makes the appointment. Maybe it's you.

Is nesting for the birds or a viable child custody model?

We know a lot more about the psychological needs of children today than we used to. At least we hope we do. That's why, in Arkansas and all other states, the primary tenet that family courts try to follow is one that puts the best interests of the children foremost on the agenda.

Governor Hutchinson's son arrested on drug charges

In our justice system, no one is supposed to be above the law. The son of Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson is learning that. Asa Hutchinson III was arrested on May 21 in Gulf Shores, Alabama, at the Hangout Music Festival. The 40-year-old Hutchinson was released from jail the following morning on $5,000 bond, but he is facing a felony charge of possession of a controlled substance.
