A nose for news?

Allsop had interesting career in the papers

Subscriber onlyMy friend Charlie Crow of Little Rock recently gave me a copy of The Poets and Poetry of Arkansas by Fred W. Allsopp. Published in 1933, this little book reminded me that Allsopp is an interesting figure in Arkansas history -- even though he has been mostly lost to public memory. Although primarily known as a pioneering journalist and part owner of the Arkansas Gazette, Allsopp was a man of myriad interests. By the time he died in 1946 at age 78, Allsopp had not only been associated with the Gazette since he was a mere lad of 18, but he also had established a hotel, started a long-lived bookstore and written books ranging from a biography of Albert Pike to a two-volume Folklore of Romantic Arkansas.

Ex-Etiquette

Subscriber onlyQ My ex and I have been broken-up for about seven months now. Our 17-year-old daughter has had a sort of open door policy -- we understand she will be 18 in 6 months and to fight about where she lives just seems silly. Last month my ex moved in with her new boyfriend and our daughter now refuses to stay at her mother's home. Even though she has her own room at her mother's, she says that it's "creepy" at her mom's. I suspect it is because mom and boyfriend sleep in the same room, but I don't know what to say at this juncture. What's good ex-etiquette? Continue reading...
