Re: “Award planned for five former Little Rock School Board members

While it's odd that Greg Adams was left out, I think it's most appropriate that Fisken not be honored. She wrote a letter to the State Education Board, while she sat on the LRSD school board, and encouraged and asked for the state to take over the district. We all know what happened next...While she's not solely responsible for the takeover, she certainly wanted it to happen and was working with others in the city and state who wanted it to happen. She undermined the district she claimed to represent and her fellow board members.

Re: “Istanbul is a palate pleaser

This is really one of the best restaurants in Little Rock. I've never had a bad meal here & love how quiet and cozy it is. The owner is so nice & the servers always are as well.

Re: “Ever check your kid's backpack?

I guess Trump's first question can't be about his wife, unless it could be multiple choice. Would be curious to know if there's a copy of the Hillary version actually filled out (before this afternoon, that is).

Re: “Lawmakers consider delivering blow to school funding

Maxifer, you are exactly correct about Cozart--he presented HB 1733 that tried to give away our public schools to charters. He does the bidding of Assa & appears to care absolutely nothing about what's best for our kids & our state. I feel truly frightened about what Assa & his cronies are going to do to our state if people don't stand up to them.

Re: “Kurrus confirms job cuts; talks of future in Little Rock schools; continues charter questions

Cutting the special education department seems particularly cruel, considering how many students in LRSD are in special education. The end of the year is always extremely busy as preparations are made for these students for the following year. It takes many people to handle all the federal and state requirements of special education and taking away staff who understand special education is not wise.

It's also especially disturbing to know that many staff who received letters are hard workers doing the best they can with limited resources, but no one bothered to dig a little deeper. Maybe if they had, they would know that the treatment of special education by past superintendents plays a large roll in the problems that are lingering.

Re: “Lulu's Crab Boil leaves much to be desired

A friend & I had lunch there about two months ago. We both had gumbo, which we thought was good, but the serving was small. Very small. We commented on this to our server, thinking that maybe there's another size option, such as a bowl rather than a cup (& our server was very friendly, did a good job). Nope--that size was it. She said they wanted to know things like this as the owners may still need to tweak the menu.

For what we paid, it did not seem like enough food for lunch--more like an appetizer size. Haven't gone back b/c I can't pay those prices for lunch & be hungry the rest of the day. I'm disappointed as well b/c I'd really like some good Cajun/Louisiana type food up here.

Re: “'Capitol Commission' minister led Capitol invocation

I just love how Sec. Of Religion Martin says there were no complaints. Who would we complain to??? Anyone watching AR politics these past few years has seen multiple republicans commit multiple ethical (if not illegal) violations & they are never disciplined for it. We all know there is no one in our state government who seems to be able to rein in these right-winger, evangelical types. Now, I realize that they all run in the same pretend-Christian circles so they don't see a thing wrong with this.

I complained & told the story on the AR Blog b/c I knew it was the only place where others would understand and care. Arkansas has to got to do better in our next election. The fundy's have got to go.
