Leadership at JBU: Phil Vischer

For one day last week, I had the opportunity to be a college student again.  On Tuesday, I went to the campus of John Brown University (JBU) in Siloam Springs to attend chapel.  Why?  Well, last week was leadership week at JBU, and they invited Phil Vischer, the creator of Veggie Tales and Big Idea Productions, to come and speak to the students.  If you know me well, you know I’m a big fan of Veggie Tales – have been from the beginning when a tomato named Bob and a …

Bailey Law Firm named tops in Siloam Springs

Siloam Springs Attorney David A. Bailey may have worried about being a bit rusty when he got back into the full time business of practicing law in July, but he needn’t have been concerned.
Indeed, the Herald-Leader in Siloam Springs informed Bailey this week that his office was named “Best Law Firm” in that newspaper’s 2012 Reader’s Choice awards.
“I’m honored and feel privileged,” Bailey said of the award. “I praise God for it. I wanted to win eventually, but I didn’t think I’d be lucky enough to get it this year. …

School bus? Total stop.

Our good friend David Bailey has started a regular column in the Siloam Springs Herald Leader.
Who is Bailey? He’s an attorney who’s been in business for 15 years. He’s holding an open house at his Siloam Springs office on Thursday to commemorate his 15th anniversary, in fact, and is inviting the public to attend and take part in the lawyerly fun (we posted something about that yesterday).
What’s the column about? Bailey is fielding legal questions from the public and is answering them. Of course, there are some  things to keep …

Siloam Springs lawyer celebrating 15 years

This week represents a milestone for David A. Bailey.
On the day after Labor Day in 1996, the Texarkana native started the Bailey Law Firm in Siloam Springs. At the time, he was one of but a few attorneys in northwest Arkansas who spoke Spanish. His decision to learn that language turned out to be fortuitous — the 2010 Census puts the population in Benton County at 221,339 and 15.5 percent of those residents are of Hispanic or Latino origin. Compare that to 2000 when 8.8 percent of 153,406 residents in …

One week ago today, I attended a memorial service for a complete stranger.  He was a stranger to me but not to his country, his family or his friends.   He was a warrior.    He was killed on August 6, 2011 when his elite special operations team was engaging in a helicopter assault in Afghanistan and their helicopter was shot down, killing everyone on board.   Our country lost 30 of the “best of the best” soldiers that day, which has been labeled the “deadliest incident” in Operation Enduring Freedom.
This particular soldier, …

Podcasting with Asa Hutchinson

It’s been a bit since we updated the First Arkansas News podcast page.
Luckily, we’re updating in style with two interviews of Asa Hutchinson that were recorded by Steve Gibbs for Legal Aid of Arkansas.

Hutchinson, after a couple of decades of public service, has settled in as an attorney in Rogers. You can read more about him here and learn about the …

Asa Hutchinson advocating volunteering for the elderly

Rogers Attorney Asa Hutchinson is a busy guy and has been for some time. Still, he still finds time to spread the message that attorneys should volunteer some time to make sure that every Arkansans has access the courts.
Former President Ronald Reagan appointed Hutchinson as a U.S. attorney in 1982 and Hutchinson became a congressman representing Arkansas’ 3rd District in 1996. He was appointed administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration by former President George W. Bush in 2001 and was confirmed by the Senate as the first under secretary of …

Franklin Graham exhorts JBU community to share gospel

SILOAM SPRINGS-When looking at the top half of Franklin Graham’s attire Tuesday, one would see someone dressed in business casual, appropriate for meetings or, in this case, a public presentation. As the eyes travel to his feet, however, one sees black high-top tennis shoes that show another side of Graham, president and CEO of Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
The message Graham shared with an audience at John Brown University in Siloam Springs Tuesday was as simple but honest as his attire. The audience was filled with …
