161933P.pdf   04/25/2017  Donald Fentress  v.  Carolyn W. Colvin
   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  16-1933
   U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas - Jonesboro    
   [PUBLISHED] [Sippel, Author, with Smith, Chief Judge, and Kelly, Circuit 
   Judge] 
   Civil case - Social Security. The ALJ and the Appeals Council did not err 
   in finding claimant was not disabled for a period of time for which he 
   sought benefits; it was not error to assign little weight to the treating 
   physician's opinion that claimant was incapable of gainful employment in 
   light of the short time the doctor had treated claimant and the other 
   evidence in the case, including claimant's daily activities; the record as 
   a whole supports the Commissioner's Residual Functional Capacity 
   determination and the decision to discount the doctor's opinion.
