The open line, Wednesday news headlines and Bret Bielema's property tax

Posted By on Wed, Jul 9, 2014 at 4:06 PM


Here's an open line. Plus, today's video news headlines.

Look for more later from Leslie Newell Peacock on Little Rock Tech Park plans, which she advanced pretty thoroughly last night. 

Somebody better start talking soon about whether the expected $22 million in city contributions to the Tech Park will come to pass given how the sales tax increase on which it is based is falling far short of expectations.

And there's this just in from Wisconsin:

* FOOTBALL AND TAXES: Because a neighbor complained, Razorback football coach Bret Bielema's house in Wisconsin has been reassessed for tax purposes. The 6,600-square foot home was assessed for taxes at $809,000 though Bielema is trying to sell it for $2.2 million. A neighbor thought Bielema got a sweetheart deal. The assessor said some finished space was overlooked and it has now been reassessed at $1.3 million. Interested in a Wisconsin getaway? Take the tour.
