Leading the way

Speaking of The Leader: Looking to link its page in the earlier item on LRAFB, I was were reminded of its consistently strong voice on local issues. For example, the editorials this week:

1) Fault Gov. Mike Beebe -- and regulatory agencies under his control -- for failing to stop the construction of another polluting coal-fired generating plant in Arkansas. Message: Polluters are welcome in Arkansas.

2) Add to our generally lonely voice about the abuse of tax increment financing to the detriment of schools. The Leader suggests a test case is ripe with NLR Mayor Pat Hays' latest attempt to grab school tax millage.

  • 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.
