Re: “Property purchases recommend on Main for LR Tech Park: UPDATE

1) ok, did you look at the graphic above? There are skywalks included in the stinking map, for gosh sakes.

2) "The corner of entertainment and commerce" sucks. The Rep, Ballet, and ASO are about so much more than mere "entertainment." Come, on. Really. Entertainment? And I thought the tech park was about more than mere "commerce." I thought it was about UALR and UAMS and ACH working creatively to foster creativity, not just make money. Certainly they want to create profitable ventures, but Wal-Mart is a profitable venture. This is about creativity and making a difference for people while making money.

Please, please, let's kill this "corner of entertainment and commerce" shlock here and now. Let's nip it, nip it, nip it in the bud!!

Let's call the whole thing the "Creative Corridor." That's accurate and classy.

All this being said, I think the proposal is dynamite! I didn't think they could pull this off, either. Of course, they haven't, yet. Here's hoping they do.

Re: “The growler open line

"When the Gulf of Mexico extends up into the Arkansas River Valley,…"

I've always thought that climate change would be great for Arkansas. Think of all the beachfront property it will bring us.

Re: “Hutchinson wouldn't push to shut hog operation in Buffalo watershed

The core question about the current operation: Why did Beebe's environmental folks run this under the radar and why hasn't he done anything about it. I'm a Beebe fan (mostly), but the current fiasco should be laid at his feet, where it belongs. Somehow his teflon coating is getting him a pass on this that he doesn't deserve.

Why couldn't he declare the permit process mishandled and pull it? His administration certainly mishandled this and he looks bad not stepping in in some way to get this shut down. He should have done that as soon as the bad permitting process came to light, before the monstrosity was completed.

Re: “Open line: News includes a 116-year-old and search for a killer

Signed the petition for the initiated act to raise the minimum wage today outside the Clinton Library. Lucky to have stumbled upon them. Felt like a great way to participate in our democracy on our national holiday.

"Clint Eastwood has done it again."

He's not talking to empty chairs again, is he? :-)

Re: “Missing evidence in police brutality case costs Pope County $4,500

I'm wondering what else they're trying to cover up - up there in Dover? Usually when you find something as ridiculous as this, a little scratching below the surface discovers much greater abuse/malfeasance/corruption.

Maybe the Demo-Zette needs to send Debra Hale-Shelton up there….
