How high the water
Heavy rains in May produced record flooding along the Arkansas River. Thousands of acres of farmland, hundreds of homes and many businesses from Fort Smith to Pine Bluff were inundated. A major levee broke at Holla Bend south of Dardanelle; another near Conway barely held. Hundreds of people had to be evacuated. The halt in river traffic commerce was estimated to cost $23 million a day; Governor Hutchinson estimated infrastructure losses at $100 million-plus. The river crested at 51 feet in Pine Bluff on June 6, the highest recorded since 1945.

A witness, dishing
An ex-girlfriend of former state Sen. Jeremy Hutchinson (R-Little Rock), charged with spending $150,000 in campaign money on personal expenses and dodging taxes on $270,000 in income, testified about her relationship with Hutchinson during a pre-trial hearing on the case. Julie McGee said Hutchinson had provided her with gifts, vacations and a fake job from his campaign funds. Asked if she had indeed worked for Hutchinson, McGee replied, “If keeping him sexually satisfied is considered campaign work.” The pre-trial hearing was over Hutchinson’s efforts to suppress evidence from a laptop McGee gave to the FBI in 2012. McGee said it was a gift; Hutchinson said she stole it from him. McGee went to the FBI to tell of Hutchinson’s alleged financial improprieties after one of their many disputes. Hutchinson faces separate federal charges in a bribery case in Missouri.
On June 25, Hutchinson entered negotiated guilty pleas to two federal felony cases in district court in Little Rock.
Brian ChilsonLINDA COLLINS
A former Republican state senator met a gruesome end in June. Linda Collins, who served in the General Assembly under her married name, Collins-Smith, was found slain, her decomposed body wrapped in a covering, outside her Pocahontas home June 4, and a friend, Becky O’Donnell of Pocahontas, was later charged with capital murder and abuse of a corpse. At the prosecutor’s request, a circuit judge sealed documents in the case; police have not provided a cause of death or motive in the slaying. O’Donnell and her boyfriend, Tim Loggains, were on their way to a visitation for Collins at a funeral home when she was arrested. O’Donnell had testified in Collins’ divorce from retired Circuit Judge Phil Smith; testimony in the case revealed that Loggains had Collins’ power of attorney and had cashed and attempted to cash almost $500,000 in tax refund checks made out jointly to Collins and her ex-husband. O’Donnell did not enter a plea at her June 17 arraignment.
Gov. Huck II?
Sarah Huckabee Sanders, known neither for veracity or warmth as President Trump’s press secretary, has left the White House to return to Arkansas and is expected to mount a campaign for governor. Trump tweeted she’d make a “fantastic” governor. It’s unknown what effect Sanders’ return to Arkansas will have on the gubernatorial desires of Attorney General Leslie Rutledge and Lt. Gov. Tim Griffin. Earlier this year, Sanders said she believed God wanted Trump to be president and that’s why he won. No word yet from God on Sanders as governor.
Not as many ‘no-knocks’
The Little Rock Police Department, which has come under criticism for its “no-knock” warrants in drug raids, announced it will evaluate “threat assessment” before making no-knock raids and would vet its informants more thoroughly.

Swine to exit watershed
Governor Hutchinson announced that the C&H Hog Farm in the Buffalo River watershed in Newton County had agreed to end its operations there in exchange for $6.2 million. Most of the payment will be in state money, but The Nature Conservancy’s Arkansas chapter is also contributing between $600,000 and $1 million. The state will hold a conservation easement on the land, which will still be held by C&H in fee simple.
Lockheed Martin, which produces rocket systems and assembles missiles and other military products at its plant in Camden, announced it would expand the factory. The company said it would invest $142 million in the defense plant and expected to add 326 jobs over the next several years. It will qualify for state subsidies in the form of a 10 percent tax credit on investment and cash rebates, the specifics of which the Arkansas Economic Development Commission does not provide to the public.
Judicial election method challenged
The NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund is suing the state in federal court over its method of electing judges to the Arkansas Court of Appeals and the Arkansas Supreme Court. The suit says the election process — statewide elections for the seven members of the Supreme Court and election by district for the 12 positions on the appeals court — has “denied black voters an equal opportunity to participate in the political process and elect candidates of their choice, in violation of Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act.” Retired Circuit Judge Marion Humphrey, retired Court of Appeals Judge Olly Neal, UA Little Rock Children’s International Director Ryan Davis, the Christian Ministerial Alliance and Arkansas Community Institute filed the suit.

One of President Donald Trump’s senior advisers, Kellyanne Conway, personally defended herself on Monday against the recent accusation from a federal watchdog agency that she violated the Hatch Act and should be "removed from service."
"They want to silence me now," Conway, whose formal title is Counselor to the President, said in an appearance on "Fox and Friends."
"This is my First Amendment right. They want to chill free speech because they don’t know how to beat him at the ballot box," she said.

The Office of Special Counsel, an independent federal agency that investigates wrongdoing by government employees, said on June 13 that Conway “violated the Hatch Act on numerous occasions by disparaging Democratic presidential candidates while speaking in her official capacity during television interviews and on social media.”
The report cites comments Conway made during the Alabama Senate special election in December 2017, which the office found violated the Hatch Act in another report released last year.
The report also mentions recent statements to White House reporters in which Conway criticized former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders, both of whom are seeking the Democratic nomination for president in 2020.
"If I’m quoting what some of the other candidates say about the other candidates, I’m just repeating the news as I read it that day," Conway said.
President Trump, despite a federal watchdog agency’s call the day before that she should be “removed from service” for using her office for political activity, said that he will not fire Conway.
"No, I’m not going to fire her, I think she’s a tremendous person, tremendous spokesperson, she’s loyal, she’s a great person," Trump said in an interview on "Fox and Friends."
(MORE: Trump: ‘Not going to fire’ Kellyanne Conway despite finding she made illegal political statements)
The House Oversight and Reform Committee said in a memo to lawmakers that they will vote Wednesday to authorize a subpoena Conway if she does not appear before the panel for a Wednesday hearing on her alleged violations of the Hatch Act.
"It’s not even clear to us in the White House, according to the White House Counsel, that the Hatch Act applies to assistants to the president," Conway said.
She added, "Even if the Hatch Act applies, our position is that I haven’t violated it."
In an interview on May 29, Conway reportedly downplayed the law, according to a OSC press release, saying she wouldn’t stop making political statements.
“If you’re trying to silence me through the Hatch Act, it’s not going to work,” and “Let me know when the jail sentence starts," she said, according to the OSC press release.
A spokesman for the office said it’s the first time the office has recommended the removal of a White House official. In the report, sent to President Donald Trump on Thursday, the office said that Conway has not faced consequences for her repeated violations of ethics rules on government employees.
The office recommended Conway be removed from her position because she has "shown disregard" for the law that prohibits federal government employees from engaging in political activities.
"Ms. Conway’s disregard for the restrictions the Hatch Act places on on executive branch employees in unacceptable," Special Counsel Henry Kerner wrote in the report. "If Ms. Conway were any other federal employee, her multiple violations of the law would almost certainly result in removal from her position by the Merit Systems Protection Board."
"As a highly visible member of the administration, Ms. Conway’s violations, if left unpunished, send a message to all federal employees that they need not abide by the Hatch Act’s restrictions. Her actions erode the principal foundation of our democratic system – the rule of law

White House deputy press secretary Steven Groves said in a statement that the OSC’s actions are "deeply flawed."
“The Office of Special Counsel’s (OSC) unprecedented actions against Kellyanne Conway are deeply flawed and violate her constitutional rights to free speech and due process. Others, of all political views, have objected to the OSC’s unclear and unevenly applied rules which have a chilling effect on free speech for all federal employees. Its decisions seem to be influenced by media pressure and liberal organizations – and perhaps OSC should be mindful of its own mandate to act in a fair, impartial, non-political manner, and not misinterpret or weaponize the Hatch Act,” Groves said.
Arkansas’ governor has asked President Donald Trump to declare a major disaster for eight counties that have been hit by historic flooding along the Arkansas River.
Gov. Asa Hutchinson asked Trump in a letter dated Thursday to declare a disaster for Conway, Crawford, Faulkner, Jefferson, Perry, Pulaski, Sebastian and Yell counties. Hutchinson wrote that preliminary assessments estimate more than $27 million is needed for temporary housing, repair, replacement housing and other needs in those counties.
Hutchinson’s office said an estimated $8.5 million is needed for debris removal and emergency protective measures for state and local governments, and that the state expected additional infrastructure losses to exceed $100 million. More than 857 homes suffered major damage or were destroyed in the counties.
The request is for individual and public assistance.
Water levels on Lake Conway continue to rise as homeowners who thought their houses were safe are scrambling to put up more barriers. For the first time ever, the dam on Lake Conway is flowing backward, pushing water from the Arkansas River back into the lake and causing the floods to rise.
Water levels on Lake Conway have risen several inches over the past day and the floods now threaten a growing number of homes.

“Nothing I can do about it but naturally I am worried about it,” said Kenny Jenkins as he worked to put sandbags and move his furniture off the floor. “When the rise in the water started it was 37 and a half inches below the concrete. Now it’s approximately four inches above the concrete.”
For Jenkins, the lakefront Conway home was supposed to be a dream house. A lakefront view, a dock stretching out into the water, and a place to relax without any worries.
All he can do now is prepare his home for the water, helpless to the rising tides.
“Watch and wait,” said Jenkins. “That’s all.”
Inside his home, his furniture sits perched above the floor. One final layer of protection in case it gets as bad as he fears.
“I have most of my furniture safe on concrete cinderblocks,” said Jenkins. “It’s going to be dipping into our savings because we don’t have insurance.”
City of Conway officials said the Arkansas River has crested, but it’s continuing to push water into Lake Conway, which is why we see the water levels here continue to rise.
Officials say all the levees in Faulkner County are holding up well after they repaired one part that was beginning to erode.
CONWAY, AR (KAIT/KATV) – Officials in central Arkansas are wanting to know what happened to a man who was shot and dropped off at a hospital where he later died.
According to a report from Little Rock television station KATV, Conway police are investigating the homicide. Investigators spent Thursday morning at the Plaza Pointe Apartments and believe the shooting happened around 4:30 a.m. Dec. 27.

The National Weather Service issued a flood warning Monday for Lake Conway as water from Palarm Creek overflowed into it, threatening low-lying areas along the lake’s 52-mile shoreline.
Areas that have previously flooded near the 6,700-acre lake are those most in danger now.
"If you’ve ever flooded before, you’re about to flood again," Faulkner County attorney and spokesman David Hogue said.
Faulkner County is among a number of counties along the Arkansas River that are dealing with the effects of record-high river levels caused by water released last week from Oklahoma.
Lake Conway runs from the Mayflower area to about 3 miles south of Conway, though those on the Mayflower side of the lake seemed to be in the most danger of water reaching their homes.
Hogue said sandbags are available throughout the town, adding he was confident that residents would take precautions.
"These are people who have lived through the oil spill, two floods" and tornadoes, all in recent years, Hogue said.
In 2014, a tornado ravaged the Mayflower and Vilonia areas. About a year earlier, a crude-oil pipeline ruptured in Mayflower’s Northwoods subdivision, forcing residents to evacuate the area. Many never moved back.
Conway Mayor Bart Castleberry said authorities don’t forecast any effects from lake flooding on areas within city limits. "We’re going to continue to monitor that," he said.
Other areas in the county that already have flooded along Cadron Creek and Lollie Bottoms will see the high water linger for a while, Hogue said.
Keith Stephens, a spokesman for the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, which built Lake Conway, said he expects it will exceed the flood stage of 266 feet mean sea level by Wednesday. The lake is expected to keep rising after that.
Palarm Creek likely will continue to rise for a few days, "pushing more and more water into Lake Conway," the commission said in a news release. "This is a long-lived event, so the threat of flooding around Lake Conway could extend beyond this week," the news release said.
Stephens said the lake is rising about a foot every 30 hours. The lake was close to 264.4 feet mean sea level Monday; that’s 1.4 feet above normal.
Another concern is that 2 to 4 inches of rain could fall in central Arkansas during the latter half of the week.
Hogue and state Rep. Spencer Hawks, R-Conway, encouraged anyone needing assistance to contact the Red Cross, which has set up a shelter at the Don Owen Sports Complex on Lower Ridge Road in Conway.
According to the Faulkner County Office of Emergency Management’s website, the Don Owen facility also has 46 recreational vehicle spots available for people who may need to park there during the flood. Electricity and water will be supplied at no cost, though people must first call (501) 327-2532 or email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hawks said the Faulkner County Animal Response Team has set up operations behind that facility and will provide care for animals displaced by the flood. That team also can take care of pets for anyone staying at the Don Owen shelter.
At David and Shirley Garrett’s home near Lake Conway, floodwaters were already approaching the home where they’ve lived about 15 years. Since late last week, they’ve been stacking furniture on top of furniture, sandbagging and even stacking a bed and other furnishings on top of concrete blocks.
In the living room, 72-year-old David Garrett had placed four 4-by-6 lumber pods beneath his piano to protect it from water. His organ is too heavy, but he’s planning to dismantle part of it.
Garrett said he and his wife plan to move some of their possessions, such as clothing, to their neighbor’s home, which sits on higher ground.
In the past, floodwaters have gotten into the couple’s garage but not into their house, which sits about three steps higher, he said. Garrett has done his math, checked the calendar and listened to the warnings. If the water rises as much as projected, he thinks he has until Thursday before it gets into the house.
Despite it all, Garrett said he’s optimistic. Bending over slightly, he began playing "Amazing Grace" on his piano.
"I’m not going to play ‘Let it rain, let it rain,’" he said with a chuckle.

Rain chances will increase over the next few days, as moisture moves back into the region and several systems move through, said Jim Reynold, meteorologist in charge with the National Weather Service office in Little Rock.
"There is a 50 percent chance of thunderstorms on Wednesday and a 70 percent chance for thunderstorms on Thursday and Friday," Reynold said. "It can bring strong winds and hail with it."
The water isn’t expected to have a major effect on the Arkansas River, Reynold said.
"Mostly what is feeding into the river is the rain from Oklahoma," Reynold said. "Also, by the time the storm hits, a lot of the river would have crested and the levels are probably not going to go back up."
Jimmy Hart, county judge of Conway County, said U.S. 64 on the east side of Menifee near the Conway County-Faulkner County line has been closed because of high water. No homes were endangered there, though, since the area is mainly made up of fields, he said.
Hart said Interstate 40 in that area was not a problem and should remain that way "if we don’t get 2 or 3 inches up in Cadron Creek."
The good news, he said, is that workers had repaired a malfunctioning drainage pipe in the Arkansas River near Oppelo after working roughly 20 hours a day since Thursday.
Recovery operations have begun farther upriver in Sebastian and Yell counties, according to Melody Daniel, a spokesman for the Arkansas Department of Emergency Management.
The National Weather Service said water levels are beginning to drop in western Arkansas after cresting in Van Buren, Ozark and Dardanelle.
"We are doing damage assessment at the state level with [Federal Emergency Management Agency] assistance," Daniel said. "We can’t do a full damage assessment until all the water recedes."
The Arkansas River crested Sunday in Dardanelle at 45.3 feet, one of several record levels along the river’s path. Flooding that threatened to inundate parts of the city slowed, easing the immediate risk for many in the Yell County town of about 4,700.
"It’s the first time I have been able to mentally relax a little bit," Dardanelle Mayor Jimmy Witt said Monday.
Approximately 20 homes in the county were surrounded by water after a levee broke around 1 a.m. Friday. State highways and county roads have been closed, and some roadways were destroyed by running water.
"It was a constant fight on multiple fronts," Witt said. "We had the river taking over the park and threatening downtown. Then we had the levee breaking, threatening the other side of the city."
County Judge Mark Thone said the past few days have been a challenge.
"The whole crew has had very little sleep, but they are doing everything they can to help," Thone said.
Flooding has hampered tourism in the area that is home to Mount Nebo, Mount Magazine and several lakes.
"We have lost a lot of tourism dollars, and it has disrupted a lot of places," Witt said. "The river is going to stay high for a little while, as well. So fishing-wise this has been great, but for river and lake activities, not so much."
County Judge David Hudson said 545 homes in Sebastian County have been affected by flooding, including 500 in Fort Smith.
Officials have created a donation and distribution center out of the old Sears building in the city.
"A lot of people have come to help and provide support, and our faith-based organizations have risen up and we thank them," Fort Smith Mayor George McGill said Monday at a news conference. "The River Valley is strong."
Water is receding within the city, but City Manager Carl Geffken asked residents to be patient and let authorities assess the damage. He said city officials will meet Wednesday to discuss the debris collection.
Oklahoma Gas and Electric Corp. reported that 415 customers were affected by power failures in Fort Smith.
"As the river descends, it will expose a lot of our equipment," said Rob Ratley, community affairs manager for the company. "It will let us re-energize some areas, but it will be lengthy process."
Jimmie Deer, the building official for the city of Fort Smith, suggested that residents hire licensed contractors to inspect flood-damaged homes.
"Water and electricity don’t mix," Deer said. "They can verify the safety aspect."
Desha County is already dealing with flooding, even though the Arkansas River isn’t expected to crest until Friday in southeast Arkansas.
"There’s some houses flooded," said Rick Terry of the Arkansas Department of Emergency Management. "Of the 65 or 70 houses there on the west side of the bridge, probably 85 percent of them have got water in the house. That water probably varies from just wetting the carpet to 30 or 40 inches in some of the houses."
The river was at 36.16 feet at 4 p.m. Monday, and it is expected to crest Friday at a record 37 feet, or 6 feet above flood stage. The previous record of 34.1 feet was set April 27, 1973.
Terry said the town of Pendleton is situated on the south bank of the river and is intersected by a bridge that takes U.S. 165 across the river. Only one or two houses on the east side of the bridge have taken on water because that portion of the town sits at a higher elevation, he said.
Most towns in the county are well away from the river, Terry said, and the few settlements that are close to it are mostly private property used for hunting.
"There may be a house or two back behind the levee, but most of the ones back there are fairly expensive and they have good, high levees built around them," Terry said.
Meteorologist Sean Clark with the National Weather Service said high water is expected to recede slowly in the area, and the river level is expected to remain above 36 feet for at least a week after it crests.
