In the 'hood

Posted By on Tue, Sep 16, 2008 at 9:26 AM

The Coalition of Little Rock Neighborhoods website is worth a look if you're interested in the future of the Lake Maumelle watershed. CLRN has been pushing hard for the brokered watershed management plan produced by months of study and participation of everyone from the water utility to developers to environmentalists. County Judge Buddy Villines has rejected this in favor of a dramatically watered down proposal, much friendlier to major developers.

CLRN leader Kathy Wells says Republican Phil Wyrick, who's opposing Villines this year, has thrown his support to the more comprehensive watershed management plan. That is producing support for Wyrick among members of the group, a number of them not generally inclined to support Republicans. Interesting.

PS -- Great minds think alike. The Arkansas Project this morning has a report on a Wyrick fund-raiser. Mostly familiar Republicans, but also including Democratic state Rep. Pam Adcock and former City Director Barbara Graves, who served alongside Wyrick's wife, B.J., on the city board.

PPS -- Go here to get a look at Wyrick's TV advertising.

  • 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.
