We’re excited to bring you our latest magazine edition of Talk Business & Politics, which you can access online here.

The newest magazine edition of TB&P is in mailboxes across the state and features a wealth of business and political stories in the 100-page publication.

Our cover story focuses on Marlon Blackwell, the world-renowned architect who calls Fayetteville his home. What makes him tick? What drives his eye for a project? And what lessons is hoping to transfer to younger students? Blackwell’s profile is also part of our larger look at trends in architecture from a variety of professionals in Arkansas.

Also, we examine an updated report on women in the workplace in Arkansas. Writer Kerri Jackson Case personalizes this landmark study with her own experiences balancing her professional and personal life.

Does Arkansas need a workforce czar? Our in-depth analysis begins a three-part magazine series on the subject complete with thoughts from Gov. Mike Beebe, State Chamber CEO Randy Zook, and a variety of other business, political and education leaders.

The Governor’s race between Asa Hutchinson and Mike Ross gets analysis from TB&P Editor-in-chief Roby Brock as well as opinion pieces from Jason Tolbert and Michael Cook. We think you’ll like the accompanying artwork which shows Ross and Hutchinson jousting.

Senate candidates Mark Pryor and Tom Cotton outline what they consider the most important issues facing Arkansans in our Point-Counterpoint series.

Rex Nelson takes readers through the history of the iconic Fayetteville Square. We profile business and political leaders Sherman Tate, Shannon Newton, Chris Claybaker and Warwick Sabin. Our Hometown, Arkansas feature centers on Little Rock and how the Main Street arts corridor is hoping to be the next great expansion of the capital city.

We’ll go beyond the private option and explore another major reform initiative driving health care costs in Arkansas. On our environmental beat, a company that emerged from UAMS research is making a huge difference at disaster scenes. And, six business leaders share their personal advice on embracing change. Plus with our beefed up coverage of regional news, we begin to offer more local content to our statewide readers.
