Re: “Former UA Board members question Razorback stadium expansion

Excellent Dem Gaz on State 'starving' UAMS. However at UAF and UAMS admin positions grow and salaries grow, while those in trenches have flat pay and fewer hands.

In the cumulative 80 years various members of Diogenes clan have been affiliated w UAMS, umpteen'saviours' have come, and gone- Deans, Chancellors ( Exec, Assoc, Assist this, that and the other, each w their own team of minions) Provosts, prima donna faculty, most putting down community roots and loyalty to people of Arkansas to the depth of astro turf. This plan, that plan, 'we will' lists, and piling up brick and mortar. Headlines do not change, only the names.
Never has a 'leader' been hit in the pocket book for failures. In recent slash and burn budgets, 'everything' on the table, except top dog salaries.

The true successes are built on the backs of Assist Profs and darn good dedicated extra -shift -midnight -on -a-holiday Nursing and patient care staff. Who get diddly year in and out.

Re: “Arkansas is starving UAMS — and the rest of state government, too

i agree w historian, and strongly differ, tho sad for his wife, w DanC.

the $$$ amount of tax cuts is important, not the citizens affected. one walton, tyson, or dillard, tax cut by $1M, is better than 1000 folks taxes' , cut by $999,999.99

Re: “City to AHTD: Consider downtown. Otherwise, go ahead.

LR- City Board of the hacks, by the hacks, for the hacks.


W the gift of knowledge of the future, would LR want the 'Wilbur Mills Expressway' w/ its Berlin Wall effect?

For that matter, have wanted I-30 where it is now?

Cantrell 'overlay', that yielded banks, dentists, liquor stores, fast foods, and a suicide lane, crowned by Walmart at the western end?

enough unintended consequences, and one question the initial intent- but I repeat myself. More succinct- "of the hacks, by the hacks, for the hacks."

Re: “Roundabout coming on Fair Park Boulevard; City Board also to hear from Johnny Key

I count on Kathy Webb to give Mr 'Got-No-Educator-Credentials' Key a going over.
