Arkansas State Senator Trent Garner No Longer Running for Re-election, Criticizes ‘career Politicians’

Published

on

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Arkansas Senator Trent Garner announced his decision not to run for re-election to the state senate Monday.

While the current state senator said serving the people of south Arkansas has been an honor, Garner sounded off on his belief that a public servant should be careful how much time they spend in power.

“I’ve seen firsthand from Governor Hutchinson, a career politician who has spent decades in office, how those who stay in office too long end up violating conservative principles for power,” Garner stated.

According to Garner, he’s going to continue to serve the people of south Arkansas, but in a different role. Rather than run for re-election, Garner plans on bringing “conservative leadership to the judiciary” by focusing on building his legal practice.

“Now more than ever, we need strong leadership in our legal system,” Garner said. “I plan on providing that leadership for the people of South Arkansas.”

In his statement, Garner also endorsed Matt Stone as his pick for the next state senator for District 2.

“Matt Stone is a conservative leader who will put the people of Arkansas first,” Garner explained. “He is a small business owner, a community servant and a proven conservative. He will put leadership into action when elected to the Arkansas State Senate. Please join me in supporting Matt Stone for State Senate District 2.”

‘Joe Vs Carole’: ‘Tiger King’-inspired TV Series Starring Kate McKinnon Gets First Trailer

Published

on

(NEXSTAR) – It’s the story you already know, now told by a bunch of people you probably also know.

Peacock has released the first trailer for “Joe vs Carole,” an upcoming scripted drama series based on the events that inspired the Wondery podcast “Joe Exotic: Tiger King,” and Netflix’s “Tiger King” docuseries.

“The story you know was only half the tale,” the trailer teases.


Judge sets Jan. 28 for ‘Tiger King’ Joe Exotic resentencing

Peacock’s adaptation, starring Kate McKinnon (“SNL”) as Carole Baskin and John Cameron Mitchell (“Hedwig and the Angry Inch”) as Joe Exotic, is said to be based specifically on the Wondery podcast, which was hosted and reported by Robert Moor. McKinnon is also an executive producer of the Peacock series.

“The limited series will center on Carole Baskin, a big cat enthusiast, who learns that fellow exotic animal lover Joe ‘Exotic’ Schreibvogel is breeding and using his big cats for profit,” per a description offered by Peacock. “She sets out to shut down his venture, inciting a quickly escalating rivalry. But Carole has a checkered past of her own and when the claws come out, Joe will stop at nothing to expose what he sees as her hypocrisy. The results prove dangerous.”

In addition to McKinnon and Mitchell, “Joe vs Carole” will star Kyle MacLachlan, Dean Winters and William Fichtner. The series debuts March 3 on Peacock’s streaming platform.

Peacock’s scripted take on the “Tiger King” drama was one of several to be announced following the success of the podcast and docuseries. One, which was set to star Nicolas Cage as Exotic, was shelved as it is “no longer relevant,” Cage told Variety in July 2021. Rob Lowe had also teased his possible casting as Joe Exotic in a Ryan Murphy-helmed production, though it’s unclear if the project is still in the works.

The Sweet Story Behind 3-year-old’s Viral ‘Spider-Girl’ Birthday Photos

Published

on

MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) – A 3-year-old girl’s Spider-Man costume has captured the hearts of thousands on social media.

The pictures, which show Demi Rose Jackson overlooking downtown Mobile, Alabama, and dressed as the one and only Spider-Man while styling in her afro-puffs, have gone viral. 

Demi Rose Jackson’s mother and eldest sister shared the deeper meaning behind the costume. 

Her professional photographer mother Diamond Jackson had the vision to make Demi Rose’s love for the marvel character come to life, saying her daughter’s obsession is fairly new.

“We literally ran across a Spider-Man bookbag or lunch box in Target one night, and she just fell in love,” Diamond said. “Ever since then, when we see things, she is crazy about it. She even has a love for spiders.”

They say the toddler insisted on Spider-Man’s actual costume and not some superhero-inspired dress. It was at that moment that she turned into Spider-Girl. 

In true Peter Parker fashion, Demi Rose decided to remain in character and let her family do all the talking. 

Her eldest sister Denver helped hold Spider-Girl’s string as she shot her web.

“When I saw the costume, I was so excited, like, ‘Oh my God, it’s so cute,’” said Denver. She also said the three-year-old can be a bit of a handful.

“At home, she’s active. She’s always torturing us. She’s very bad. But she’s sweet,” Denver said. 

The pictures have been shared on Facebook more than 75,000 times. They also had actors Viola Davis and Marvel’s own Michael B. Jordan marveling at what many are calling “Black Girl Magic.”

Diamond and Denver say most of that magic comes from Demi Rose’s natural hair. 

“I think afros were always kind of big, but long ago it wasn’t,” Denver said. “But I think after the Spider-Man photo, it made a big, big difference and inspired a lot of people.”

“I really want them to embrace their natural hair,” said Diamond. “I think it’s important for them to love every part about themselves, and when I say ‘them’ I mean all three of my daughters. It was to the point where I cut my own hair to go natural, to let them know if I can love myself like this, then you can too.” 

Diamond hopes this moment continues to bring joy and inspire inclusion across the world. 

“My heart is full. I feel like with everything going on in the world, I feel like it’s perfect to have a little superhero that we can believe in,” Diamond said.
