Re: “State rep candidate Clarke Tucker: opposition research regarding his 4-year-old son's application to pre-k by Stacy Hurst is "completely unacceptable"

I am not in the district for this election but was I you can count on my vote against Councilwoman Hurst. She is a very nice person and for those who live in the upper Heights (i.e. north of Cantrell and east of University) she has been a great councilperson. For those of us in other parts of her constituency, well lets just say I got very familiar with her voice mail over the last six years.

Re: “Clinton National Airport proposes $20 million concourse renovation UPDATE

Looks an awful lot like $20 million for new carpet and a paint job. Yet another example of misguided investment in the city. How nice would it be to be able to drive across town without your fillings shaking out because of the potholes. I realize that the airport and city streets are funded by different revenue streams, nonetheless our civic priorities are way way out of whack.

Re: “UPDATE: Stodola breaks tie for approval of convenience store at 12th and University

No one can be surprised that Boss Stodola and Councilwoman Hurst voted as they did or that the division was the expected 5-5. Little Rock is fast on the way to becoming an even more starkly divided city thanks to the lack of leadership and our new "strong mayor" government.

We can expect nothing but the same as long as we have the form of government we have and 07 exerts this much influence over the city. BTW, I live in 07 and always have and even I think there is too much power in the Heights!

Re: “Little Rock Tech Park: Site selection leads to money questions

Personally, I am all for the tech park if it works and if there is private funding to make it work. I do think that we need to be very careful about what Boss Stodola tells us and what is the actual fact of the matter. Remember when we voted to make some "modernizing" changes to city government and ended up with the very thing that was tossed out in the 1950's? For my part, I am looking forward to having someone as thoughtful and savvy as Kathy Webb on the city council.

Re: “Who should vote? Republicans have some ideas

Putting aside the non-issue of voter fraud, let's follow his logic. If a woman who "needs social services to get her life back on track" is at risk of being a political pawn, I assume that he would support legislation limiting the ability of executives and directors of Chase, Goldman, et al from voting. After all, they needed government assistance to get their multi-billion dollar oxes out of a ditch.

Re: “Friday night line: Ponzi scheme news

All I can say is wow to the Clarksville story. I guess we will not be having our church study group meetings there any more!

Re: “UPDATE: Beebe calls for resignation of Lt. Gov. Mark Darr

He should resign if for no other reason than to preserve a shred of self-respect.

More disappointing than anything is Doyle Webb's stunning silence on this issue. Granted his own past lapses make it somewhat difficult for him to call for resignation without looking like a hypocrite. Nonetheless, a call for Darr to resign would be a nod toward an attempt to make the state GOP at least a fraction less blindly partisan than the national parties have become.
