Re: “King Day in Arkansas: Or is it Lee Day?

Clinton may have signed it, but it probably came out of the legislature in an attempt to standardize State Holidays. Prior to this most state employees looked at the calendar to see how the holidays fell and if one gave them a 3 day weekend then that was the one most chose to celebrate that year, the others had to be part of the skeleton crew and took their day off on the other day. I don't know if the legislation that made them the same day was also the one that said the legislature wouldn't meet even if they were in session or if that came later. The benefit of that is that no agency has to have a skeleton crew on MLK/R.E. Lee day.

Re: “The treasurer's payroll and other transition tidbits

When Democrats controlled things we had to have qualifications now that the "R" bunch is in charge we don't need those qualifications. Why does the Treasurer need a Deputy Chief of Staff and an Assistant Chief of Staff, does he think he's a 4 star General. If the Gov is looking for savings there is a $160,000+ a year there.

Re: “Gov. Hutchinson signs executive orders. But ....

Most citizens don't know that there already is a hiring freeze so the media will pick this up and make a big deal of it and the Governor can act like he's really making a change from his predecessor.

Re: “McDaniel appeals federal marriage ruling; objects to fee for lawyer in case

Was this his idea or was it done at Leslie's suggestion like the other?

Re: “What would Uber charge? A Bryant 11-year-old's $2,500 cab ride

In the story in the paper the cab driver says she was in a sweatsuit with a lot of makeup on and looked 17 or 18. That is his story and he's sticking to it.

Re: “Dustin McDaniel, going out with a whimper, joins anti-immigrant lawsuit

I saw that in the paper today and almost choked on my coffee. Leslie doesn't take office for a month so why is he doing what SHE wants? Wimp!
