County judge forum set

This is important enough to mention prominently now. Pulaski County has enjoyed generally competent leadership under the administration of Buddy Villines (which isn't to say I'm enamored of the vise he's put Little Rock in on the jail.) But love or hate Buddy, he's retiring. In running the jail and in progressive use of the county's big road fund (think trails, pedestrian bridges, showcase downtown bridges) and tax power (think Verizon Arena), the county judge can have a big impact. We'd have no Maumelle watershed ordinance at all — love or hate it — without Villines.

It's not a throwaway election. Find out about the candidates. Attend this session.

    Sen. Tom Cotton, cordial to a fault, appeared before a capacity crowd at the 2,200 seat Pat Walker Performing Arts Center at Springdale High tonight to a mixed chorus of clapping and boos. Other than polite applause when he introduced his mom and dad and a still moment as he led the crowd in a recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance — his night didn't get much better from there.
