Those college bonds

Posted By on Fri, Sep 29, 2006 at 9:09 AM

An editorial by Ernie Dumas in the Leader suggests Mike Beebe has stepped in it with his idea of using the state surplus to pay off bond debt. 1) It doesn't the release the state from obligation of paying interest to bond holders; 2) if it's such a good idea, why does he support issuing another quarter-of-a-billion more college bonds. Why not just build those projects with the surplus, interest free?

Mike!?

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
