Re: “Wind energy manufacturer Nordex to end production in Jonesboro

Jonesboro is indeed a windy place, but there are no wind turbines turning there. We don't have any wind energy being generated here in the state (save for a few privately-owned turbines). If Arkansas utilities and leaders would commit to developing a percentage of our state's energy from wind, we could support our state's wind industry easily.

Re: “President Obama takes on climate change

This is big news. Entergy and SWEPCO operate three older dirty coal-burning power plants in Arkansas, each of which are more than three decades old, that spew millions of tons of carbon dioxide and other pollutants into our state's air each year. Today's announcement squarely addresses these dirty plants, and will go a long way toward protecting Arkansans's health from dangerous coal pollution.

Re: “Secretary of State Mark Martin listed as speaker in Azerbaijan

I'm trying to imagine the howls of outrage that would pierce the hills and hollers if a Democrat hoisted an Azerbaijani flag over our Capitol.

Re: “LRPD News: Homicide, traffic death

Forrest went to Jefferson Elementary with my older son here in Little Rock. I remember him as someone who walked to the beat of his own drum, a skateboarder, and a big part of the Jefferson family. Much love and sympathies to his parents and family.

Re: “The Mayflower oil spill continues to make headlines

Citizen1: We agree that ExxonMobil should be the one to make residents whole. We're asking that our local/state/federal officials make sure this happens. ExxonMobil is a multinational corporation--it's up to our government officials to enforce the law and hold the corporation's feet to the fire.

Re: “The Mayflower oil spill continues to make headlines

Griz--I know that you're a proud, card-carrying member of the environmental community. Step right up and take it on or, at the least, share information with others in the community and convince them that it's a good issue to take on.

COMMUNITY TO MARK ONE-MONTH ANNIVERSARY OF EXXONMOBIL SPILL
Activists will "Stand With Mayflower" and Urge Rejection of Keystone XL Pipeline To
Save American Communities from Future Massive Tar Sands Spills

Arkansans Concerned about Oil Pipelines ("A-COP") and other groups will hold an event at the following date, time, and location:

WHAT: "Stand With Mayflower/No to Keystone XL" Event
WHEN: Monday, April 29th, 6 p.m.
WHERE: Pearce Park, Mayflower, AR
2 Ashmore Street (next to Mayflower City Hall)

Speakers include Mayflower residents, representatives from Sierra Club and Faulkner County Citizens Advisory Group, and clergy leading the crowd in prayer and responsive readings.

Directions to Pearce Park in Mayflower: From Little Rock, take I-40 West to Mayflower exit. Where Hwy. 365 and 89 north meet at a 3-way stop (look for the big Baptist church at this junction), take 89 north. Within just a quarter mile, turn right onto North Railroad Ave. (If you get to the railroad tracks, you've gone too far.) The park is just ahead on the right.

The event will mark the one-month anniversary of the ExxonMobil tar sands spill, in which more than 200,000 gallons of tar sands crude erupted from a pipeline in a residential neighborhood and spread throughout the town. Attendees will stand in peaceful solidarity with their fellow Arkansans to mark this anniversary, and urge ExxonMobil and our local/state/federal officials to do everything possible to make Mayflower residents whole again.

In addition, attendees will urge President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry to reject the pending Keystone XL pipeline and protect American communities from tar sands spills that would be 10 times larger than the spill that has affected Mayflower.

The media is invited to attend.
