Industrial bond issue coming

Posted By on Mon, Dec 15, 2008 at 1:30 PM

The city of Little Rock is preparing to approve a $150 million industrial development bond issue to build facilities for LM Glasfiber, the windmill blade manufacturer that will have plants on Lindsey Drive and Scott Hamilton.

Because the property will be exempt from taxation under city ownership of the facilities while bonds are repaid, a payment in lieu of taxes agreement is set for approval by the City Board of Directors. The company will agree to pay 35 percent of the normal property taxes, most of which benefit public schools.

Agreement here. Better than nothing, which was the agreement the city gave Acxiom in a near-secret deal a few years back.

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
