Hey, how about that Robert E. Lee Elementary School in a mostly Latino neighborhood in Springdale?
"Lee Elementary, which is named for Robert E. Lee, a Southern general in the Civil War, was given a portrait of the school's namesake. The portrait was presented to the school by Mrs. M.D. Lichlyter. The portrait has been in Mrs. Lichlyter's family since 1870. It now hangs in the school's office."
Now would be a good time for Fort Smith Southside to end the Rebels mascot. This isn't the 1960's (even in Fort Smith) and the school isn't the all-white enclave of old (now that would be Greenwood HS). It's an embarrassment for the state.
Any hint as to location?
XNA has lost flights too. Flights to Miami, Salt Lake City, Raleigh, Memphis, D.C. and Los Angeles have been dropped or reduced. Directs to Minneapolis will continue due to the significant overlap in business between accounts dealing with both Walmart and Target keeping the planes filled.
The Smokin' Joes restaurant owner takes stupid to a whole new level.
So Sen. Boozman isn't an actual robot and is capable of emotion. Interesting. The Republicans created this mess with their own endless Obamacare grandstanding, too bad they're determined to drag the rest of the nation down with them.
To summarize, since 1992:
Lots of movement into NWA/FSM from Southern California (coincides with explosion of Latino immigrants -- overlap?)
Vast majority of the regional inflow to Benton County came from Washington County (UA students taking up employment at Wally World HQ (?), huge growth of shopping and entertainment previously only available in Fayetteville)
Most regional inflow to Fort Smith comes from surrounding rural counties (explains why FS remains stubbornly small-minded and conservative)
Most FS outflow goes to Van Buren (cheap new "suburban" housing/white people) and Fayetteville (UofA students/jobs)
Pulaski County losing people to suburban flight
Nothing we didn't already know, but it is interesting to see the numbers.
