NLR's big news UPDATE

Posted By on Mon, Jan 5, 2009 at 1:59 AM

Those 500 jobs to be announced today in NLR, said to be related to "utility vehicles." Here's an uninformed guess: it's a maker of the mini-trucks that are popular in agricultural and commercial uses worldwide. Generally, they are not allowed on highways. Legislation is expected this session to allow them on Arkansas roads.

UPDATE: Forget about this speculation. It's much bigger stuff -- a Caterpillar grader plant.
