A very early open line: Update

Posted By on Thu, May 29, 2014 at 2:24 PM

I have to drive to NWA. So I'm out of here. The rest of the gang will be on the lookout. I do know Gus's Fried Chicken is opening on Bowman Road in the old Buffalo Grill location; Henderson State is raising tuition 3.8 percent; the National Right to Work group is suing over dues for Pulaski School District bus drivers who don't want to be in the union (the school district says it will happily stop deductions). Bro. Rapert will almost certainly do something else outlandish before the day is over, too.

Update: The Little Rock Technology Park Authority board of directors spent the day interviewing six finalists for the park director job. It made no decision on the hire. Chair Mary Good said board members would take a few days to think about their choices, hold an executive session by telephone next Wednesday at 8 a.m. and announce the decision by 8:30 a.m. or so.

    It was just a little over a year ago when Baker Kurrus was hired as the superintendent of the Little Rock School District.

  • Highway Department: Key parts of new Clarendon bridge installed upside down.

    The future of the old Highway 79 bridge at Clarendon is uncertain, but it's a good thing the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department didn't jump the gun on demolishing it.That's because the new bridge at Clarendon — or at least the western approach, which is elevated over U.S. Fish and Wildlife wetlands — is snakebit.

    It has never been as consequential as Versailles, which helped trigger the French Revolution, but the royal palace of Arkansas's First Family has always been an object of political intrigue.
