NLR's mothball fleet and more

Posted By on Thu, Jan 10, 2008 at 7:44 AM

The excitable folks at the Levy Project say this week's Times of North Little Rock is loaded with good stuff about Argenta doings. Unfortunately, their website hasn't been updated yet.

HAYS' NAVY: Apparently there's a report on the vast sums spent in the so-far-unsuccessful effort to move a scrapped Navy tugboat (that's the Hoga above at Pearl Harbor) to join the motley assortment of not-so-seaworthy vessels littering the North Little Rock riverfront. And apparently a question about what Levy Project calls a "slush fund" for this purpose.

ARABIAN NIGHTS: Another report concerns the dramatic increase in reports of shots fired in the city, this in part due to the rising popularity of firing guns to celebrate events such as New Year's Eve.

When the website is posted, I'll add some links.
