Re: “University neighborhoods fighting 24-hour gas station, hotel

Why do we bother to have/pay a Planning Commission staff, when the committee overrules them?

Re: “Outside money pouring into political races at unprecedented pace

It's horrible! If you are watching a local channel it's just one commercial after another of political stuff.

Re: “Governor candidates talk about hog farms in Northwest Arkansas

There is an article on this in the paper. The dye tests are showing results in places that surprise them. It seems that underground there is a lot more connectivity than they thought.

Re: “WSJ examines Arkansas Medicaid denial of expensive drug for cystic fibrosis

That is like when the head of EBD was talking about restricting prescriptions to one drug for each category to save money.

Re: “School groups criticize insurance 'fix'

It would take some work by somebody, but if you downloaded the Pay Plan and then mapped out the salaries by grade/classification you would see how many employees are what are referred to as "red circled", meaning their rate is completely off the chart for the Classification and most of them got this way from the 2009 Reclassification.

Re: “School groups criticize insurance 'fix'

It used to that the Benefits you got from being a State Employee offset the salary, alas that is no longer a factor. The much heralded Reclassification and new Pay Plan that was done in 2009 that would take care of "Career Employees" was a line of BS that all the media bought into and it also took away the Career Path for most employees. On top of that the Merit Pay was changed to be a Lump Sum instead of increasing salary so that was another slap in the face. This legislature is headed towards Privatization, contact everything the state does to "Private Business" or run the State like a Business.
