Arkansas Business Publisher Jeff Hankins is filling for Steve Barnes tonight as host of AETN’s “Arkansas Week.” This week’s guest: Max Brantley of the Arkansas Times, Rick Fahr of The Log Cabin Democrat and David Keith of the University of Central Arkansas‘ Journalism Department.
There’s should be lots to talk about this week, including this morning’s Arkansas Democrat-Gazette report that Arkansas State Police are going to assist in a prosecutor’s review of the university’s finances. On Jeff’s official agenda: the latest on Arkansas lottery plans, state highway funds from the Feds and natural gas proceeds, tobacco settlement spending, and a possible Sarah Palin/Mike Huckabee showdown.
