On Passover, 1865, the Civil War has just ended and the annual celebration of freedom from bondage is being observed in Jewish homes across the country. One of these homes sits in ruins. As Jewish confederate officer Caleb DeLeon returns from the war, badly wounded, to find his family missing and only two former slaves remaining, Simon and John, the two men are forced to care for him. As Caleb, Simon and John wait for the family's return, they wrestle with their shared past as master and slave, digging up long-buried family secrets as well as new ones. With Passover upon them, the three men unite to celebrate the holiday, even as they struggle to comprehend their new relationships at a crossroads of personal and national history and to come to terms with the sordid legacies of slavery and war that threaten each of their future freedoms.

Her name is Mooney – she is a 13 year old gray tabby cat who loves to chat with you and be held. She enjoys purring to you as you stroke her soft fur. Mooney and 2 other cats were surrendered to the Humane Society of Pulaski County by her owner who sadly had become too ill to care for her. Her housemate cats have found forever homes and we hope Mooney will find one too. 13 may sound old, but Mooney is young at heart, active and affectionate. She had a tumor removed on arrival at the shelter, but now has a happy future with just the right person. We are hoping it is someone watching the morning show Thursday!

Your brakes are extremely important as you drive around Little Rock AR. Having good brakes just keeps you out of trouble. You’ll want to carefully maintain your brakes. With disc brakes, brake pads rub on a disc – or rotor – to slow the wheels. The brake pads are attached to a caliper that squeezes the pads against the rotor. It’s kind of like how squeezing the handbrake on a bicycle pushes the brake pads against the wheel of the bike. Now pads just wear away with use – kind of like a pencil eraser wears out. The good news is that replacing brake pads is a straight-forward repair

Alright...Time for part two of our interview with Darren McFadden. Yesterday talking about Oakland and the Raiders. Today we want to talk about the Arkansas Razorbacks. You have always been a huge Razorback. There was no other place. After you graduated from Oak Grove, there was no other place you were going. "No other place. I actually commited as a Junior in high school. I sat down with my high school coach John Mays. He's retired now. We just talked. He just told me if I know where I want...No point in scheduling visits. I cancelled any visits I had and commited to Arkansas." Let's talk about a lot of changes since you've been up there. Several different coaches since your time with Houston Nutt. Let's talk about Bret Bielema. An offense I have a feeling as a running back, an offense you would like to run under. "Yeah, it's definitely. He's doing a great job with the team up there. I'm looking forward to the future with those guys. They got better this year and I feel like the few guys that they did lose I feel like they were right there in them. It just comes with experience. Those guys are going to get better. I feel like their time is coming soon." The two running backs up there. I have all season long kind of compared them to you and Felix...J-Will and a.C. What do you seen in Jonathan Williams and Alex Collins? "You know seeing those guys run ball. Alex Collins making plays in open field and run around you. I feel like J-Will is the same. Great players...They know what to do when they get the ball." Finally the future for Arkansas. I see it being bright and to be honest with you Darren, it took me awhile to buy in the style of play for Bret Bielema but he made me a Beilemer if you will. Do you see the future as bright as many here and around the country do? "Definitely. I was a believer when they first brought him in. He done a great job in Wisconsin. That's what you do. Put the ball in the hands of the running backs. He had two backs to do it with." A week and a half until the super bowl.It's seattle against the patriots. Who do you like in the game? "Seattle and New England...That's a tough one. But I have to go with Seattle. They're a great team all around. Running the ball, run defense, pass defense. They're going to be a tough team to beat."

Tuesday the Conway Planning Commission will meet to discuss two potential residential subdivisions. The regularly scheduled Monday planning commission meeting has been moved to Tuesday evening because of the Martin Luther King holiday. Castleberry Meadows Subdivision Trinity Development & Four Winds, Inc. is seeking to build 40 single-family homes on 15 acres north of Prince Street and west of Chapel Creek subdivision. The 15 acres are currently outside, but abutting Conway city limits. The applicant plans to seek annexation in the near future, and will request an R-1 or One Family Residential District zoning at that time, the Conway Planning Department said. Street names have been approved for the subdivision except Bird Song Drive. The street name already exists inside city limits and will need to be changed to Gray Fox Drive, the planning department said. Winterbrook Subdivision Hal Crafton is seeking to build 33 single-family homes on about 15 acres at 3350 Tyler St. The acres are currently zoned as an agricultural district. The Planning department said the property must be zoned as a One Family Residential District before the subdivision plat, and the request for rezoning will likely go before the planning commission in February. The extension of Daffodil Street, a stub-out street in the Summerbrook subdivision has been planned since the filling of the subdivision in October of 2000, and the department said the extension will add to the area’s connectivity. The Conway Planning Commission makes recommendations to the City Council on public hearing items. The City Council will make a final decision on these items using the planning commission’s recommendations as a guide. The planning commission is scheduled to meet Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the Roberts District Court Building at 810 Parkway Ave.
Lawmakers will convene Tuesday at the Capitol after a four-day break. One of the first things on their agenda: the new governor's income tax bill. Senate Bill 6 is a tax cut for the middle class. The bill would reduce the income tax rate from 7 percent to 6 percent for those making between $35,100 and $75,000, and from 6 percent to 5 percent for those making between $21,000 and $35,099, starting next year. The legislation also would delay for a year implementation of certain 0.1 percentage point income tax cuts scheduled to go into effect this year. Senate leadership hopes the Revenue and Taxation Committee will advance the bill Wednesday.

Darren thank you so much for joining us...We've known each other for quite a long time. Let's talk about your season...Obviously Oakland not having the season you would want. Not a lot of wins there but all in all you got to see the playing field quite a bit there. "You know I'm a football player. I want to be out there but you know winning football games. It's something we haven't been able to do recently. So as long as I'm out there playing healthy, i feel like i can contribute to any team...Wherever i am." You are right now an Oakland Raider, but you're also a free agent. After the super bowl, talk to me about this process about where you want to be the kind of team you want to be and where you live because you have the options you have the choices. "For me it's just a waiting game. Free agency doesn't start until the second week of March. I just want to sit back and relax and decide. When the time comes, I don't have any idea. Honestly staying in Oakland is not out of the question for me. I just want to get somewhere and be successful." You do have a home in Oakland in California but home for you i know is Arkansas. "Little Rock" You grew up here not too far from the station downtown Little Rock. Talk about being home. I know you spent a lot of time here. "You know it's a great joy any time I can come home. I like to go home and relax. I'm an Arkansas boy. I like to go hunting with my family and just hang out with my family. Any chance i have to come home, I'm here. How much did you want to be a part of this area. You have tattoos that say Little Rock. You are prototypical Arkansas boy. Was there in you or did you have to say, I'm going to represent the state. "It's just in me. You know I'm loyal to the state of Arkansas. I grew up a Hog fan. Coming out of high school, it wasn't a question on where i was going to go to play ball. For me, I'm just a loyal person, I want to represent my state and city any way I can."

One day after the new governor officially took office, a bill's been filed to fullfill one of his biggest campaign promises. It would reduce state income tax rates for arkansans making less than $75-thousand dollars a year.

New Attorney General Leslie Rutledge defending her decision to let go 25 people in the AG's office -- saying the reasons for doing so were not political or personal.

Decades of U.S. trade and travel restrictions on Cuba will come to an end on Friday, the government announced in the first tangible step towards restoring diplomatic ties between Washington and Havana. New rules will allow Americans to travel to the country without a license - as long as they go for approved reasons - and use their U.S. credit or debit cards, the U.S. Departments of Commerce and Treasury said in a statement. Cubans living in the U.S. will also have their quarterly remittances increased from $500 to $2,000 per quarter, allowing them to send home more money. Officials said approved reasons for travel include business or family visits, and that tourism from the U.S. to Cuba was still prohibited by Congress.

In her first few days in office Leslie Rutledge finished up interviews with all her employees, deciding who to keep and who to let go.

She's also been briefed on the state's participation in a lawsuit against Exxon Mobil over the Mayflower oil spill in March of 2013. As for those layoffs, she says 25 people were not held over. There's been criticism from some former employees over the way it's been handled, but she says it's nothing personal or political. "The individuals that were not offered positions in this administration didn't fit our vision," Rutledge said. As for her priorities, Rutledge says she is working to bolster the cyber crimes and consumer protections units.

And since they only have one chance to make a good impression - they go big! They spend months developing their space and days constructing their designs. It is worth the price of admission just to see some of the latest trends, designs and wedding ideas from the vendors."

Special, and limited, VIB (Very Important Bride) tickets are available for $35 and give brides special treatment including early access to the show at 12:30 p.m., a concierge to help brides at the show and reserve seating to the fashion show.

Oaklawn Park General Manager Eric Jackson said late in the 2014 meeting that he wouldn't trade places with any track in the country. Approximately nine months later, Jackson hasn't changed his mind. "We're very appreciative of where we are right now," Jackson said. "But I think we're on the cusp of taking it to another level. That's what's particularly exciting and gratifying." Armed with the highest projected purse distribution in its 111-year history, Oaklawn will open its live season for the first time on a Thursday after having to cancel the first three days of the scheduled 57-day meeting last week because of severe winter weather. Gates open Thursday at 11 a.m., with racing to begin at 1 p.m. Oaklawn has waived the $2 general admission fee this year. Thursday's nine-race card is anchored by the $100,000 Dixie Belle Stakes for 3-year-old fillies at six furlongs, and also features the return for 2014 Arkansas Derby and Preakness runner-up Ride On Curlin in a second-level allowance sprint. Sunny skies and temperatures approaching 50 degrees are forecast Thursday afternoon, according to weather.com. Oaklawn officials are projecting a record purse distribution of $23.5 million in 2015, an average of roughly $435,000 daily. Oaklawn averaged a record $413,000 in daily purse distribution last year, 15.8 percent increase over the 2013 meeting ($347,796). Oaklawn's purse structure has skyrocketed in recent years because of the continued success of skill-based electronic gaming at the track. A portion of games of skills revenue is earmarked for purses. Purses figure to keep soaring since Oaklawn completed a $20 million expansion at the south end of the grandstand in the offseason, increasing gaming space by approximately 50 percent. "It's great now," Jackson said. "But, when I look at the next two or three years, you go, 'Oh, my, this could really be something.' " Higher purses will lead to better quality on the track. Nine of Oaklawn's 10 leading trainers from last year have returned, including three-time defending champion Steve Asmussen. Among the high-profile training newcomers are Tony Dutrow, Wayne Catalano, Mike Stidham, Steve Margolis, Karl Broberg and Robertino Diodoro. Broberg (325), Asmussen (294) and Diodoro (244) ranked first, second and fifth, respectively, in the country in victories last year. Eight of the top 10 leading jockeys from 2014 return, including Ricardo Santana Jr., who is bidding for his third consecutive title. Also returning are Hall of Famer Calvin Borel, Jon Court and two-time Oaklawn riding champions Cliff Berry and Terry Thompson. Newcomers of note are Shaun Bridgmohan and Joe Rocco Jr., who ranked in the top 60 nationally in purse earnings last year, and Emmanuel Esquivel, leading rider at the recently concluded Hawthorne meeting. Among the top horses scheduled to run at the meet are Grade I winners Take Charge Brandi, the likely champion 2-year-old filly, The Big Beast, Work All Week, Don't Tell Sophia and Moonshine Mullin. "I'm really, really pleased with our quality this year," Oaklawn racing secretary Pat Pope said. The richest stakes schedule in Oaklawn history is highlighted by the closing-day $1 million Arkansas Derby (G1) April 11 and the $750,000 Rebel Stakes (G2) March 14. The Rebel, the final major local prep for the Arkansas Derby, was previously worth $600,000. Trainer Ron Moquett, an Arkansas native and Oaklawn regular, said he believes fans and handicappers will be treated to a top-shelf season. "I think it's going to be fun for gamblers," Moquett said. "There's going to be a variety of horsemen with a different level of horse." THURSDAY'S TIMES: First post for the nine races is 1 p.m. Gates open at 11 a.m. GENERAL ADMISSION: Free PROMOTION: Price rollbackCorned beef sandwiches are 50 cents and soft drinks are 10 cents

The Central High School neighborhood's past and future are the subject of a lecture Tuesday at the Arkansas Arts Center. A panel discussion of the historic school and its surrounding neighborhood will be the foundation for a talk at 6 p.m. in the center's lecture hall that will also focus on threats to the historic properties of the neighborhood. A reception will precede the event at 5:30 p.m. A flier for the event says that Central High School was designated by the American Institute of Architects as "the most beautiful high school in America" at the time of its completion in 1927. The flier also said that the school is the largest, most expensive high school ever built in the United States. It was the site of the 1957 desegregation crisis and is listed as a National Historic Landmark. Panelists for Tuesday's lecture are historian Rachel Silva, architect Kwendeche, Central High Principal Nancy Rousseau and Central High School Neighborhood Association President Vanessa McKuin. The lecture is part of the Architecture and Design Network's Then and Now series.
