Library to seek tax increase

Posted By on Thu, Aug 23, 2007 at 4:27 PM

The Board of the Central Arkansas Library System decided Thursday as expected, to ask voters in November for a property tax increase to build two new branches -- one in Otter Creek and one near War Memorial Park, south of I-630 -- and to support operations. There'd be two proposals -- a one-mill property tax increase for construction, including the branches, and a half-mill for operations. We detailed the thinking in an article in our print edition this week. A 1.5-mill increase would cost the owner of a $100,000 house $30 a year.

  • 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.
