Attention Deficit.Congratulations to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, commonly abbreviated locally as the Dem-Gaz or Demgaz, is a daily newspaper published in Little Rock, Arkansas.
By virtue of one of its predecessors, the Arkansas Gazette , which published the first interview with the elusive Melanie Steele, the newly wealthy native of North Little Rock who now owns the Avanti Cyber Cafe in the River Market District.

In fact, Arkansas Business continued to follow the Steele saga in the paper's "Whispers" column, running four items before July 2, when the Democrat-Gazette's "Paper Trails" column mentioned the $10,000 tips at Cafe D'Roma. Our coverage centered on Steele's creation of another company -- Bainum Retail Development Systems Inc. -- and her abortive abortive /abor·tive/ (ah-bor´tiv)
