Governor Asa Hutchinson recently replaced ABC Chairwoman Janet Moore with Dan Greenberg.  Greenberg frequently filled in when other board members were not available for the monthly meeting. 


Greenberg, an attorney by profession,  is a former state representative and the president of a conservative think tank, the Advance Arkansas Institute.

Moore was often argumentative and appeared to be racially biased as she often asked the applicants or permit holders what country they were from shortly before ruling against them.

Greenberg might be a good choice as he appears to be concerned about over-reaching government as evidenced in an editorial he penned in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette back in December 2016 (his dad is Paul Greenberg, a well-known newspaper editorial writer) and in his joining State Representative John Walking is seeking legislation to protect the rights of individuals to take photos or making video recordings in public places.

Maybe Greenberg will help the ABC and stand up  to tained ABC Enforcement Direct Boyce Hamlet and urge him to stop violating the law by using underaged individuals in compliance operations.

The other new board member is Jamie Anderson, a minnow farmer from Lonoke. Anderson replaced Chris Palmer, who was appointed to the Workers’ Compensation Commission by the governor in December.


Palmer was just biding time as as ABC Board member until a more prestigious position opened up. The move allows his lawfirm to get involved with matters that will no doubt involve Medical Marijuana before the ABC Board which will be involved in the application and enforcement process.

Alas Palmer's new position with the Workers Compensation Commission will be limited to six months.  Look for him to be appointed to another board or commission at that time.

Anderson has a connection to the liquor business in that his uncle John Hawkins, (son of the infamous Marlin Hawkins) when alive owned a liquor store. 

Anderson will probably be worthless as a board member as he holds some odd beliefs and appears to not be very bright. 

But he does like beer.

The Bryant Police Department confirms an on-going investigation of a now former Bryant teacher, Heather Danielle (Hall) Hare. Hare (age 32) has been accused of sexual contact with a student.  Hare was featured on ABC Good Morning America in May 2020 when a course she taught was discontinued during the pandemic. At this point no details of the alleged illegal conduct have been released. Earlier today the school district posted this on a Bryant Schools Facebook page. According to on-line school board records, Hare submitted her resignation effective April 1, 2023.     Hare is married and is a resident of Conway, AR. KATV featured the Hare family in another story on October 31, 2022. Stay tuned for updates.

ASP Trooper Jacob Haynie caught on his own mobile video recordings using the N-word

On November 21, 2023, after one of those questionable PIT maneuvers (the ASP now calls  Precision Immobilization Technique , or PIT maneuvers, Tactical Vehicle Intervention or TVI) ASP rookie trooper and former Hope Arkansas cop Jacob Haynie was caught on his and other ASP mobile video recordings using profanity and the N-word.   ASP policy prohibits the behavior and words Trooper Haynie uttered. That same policy also prohibits actions and behaviors that reflect unfavorably on the ASP. Haynie's wife works at the Hempstead County Assessors office. Wonder if she uses that language at work too?  ### The full videos can be viewed on many of the YouTube Channels that feature ASP videos.  A follower of one channel identifies Haynie as the one uttering the words. Apparently that individual knows Haynie and might have worked with him at Hope PD. ASP claims no one said the words "climb" or "N***a" and the trooper using the fowl language was actually Tyler Gentry. Ri

Three LRPD cops "relieved of duty" over incident at Club Trois

Sources at LRPD have confirmed a tip we received that three LRPD cops, Brad Stewart, Lee Pitts and Justin Sims have been "relieved of duty" in connection with an incident at Club Trois. The story we were told is that Stewart was working off-duty at Club Trois and dealt with an inebriated female club patron by soaking her with pepper spray.  LRPD General Order  ("G.O.") 303 requires that a cop that uses physical force, non-lethal control and compliance devices, on or off-duty, follow certain procedures. Use of pepper spray is a Level 4 event. Here are the specific procedures. LRPD sources tell us that they are trained to call MEMS after they use pepper spray or a taser on an individual. They are to file an incident report and they file an officer's report or letter form (5600-2) with their immediate supervisor for each use of force incident. Here's an example of an officer letter form.   Not a single procedure was followed in this incident. And to make matter
