The UCA chronicles

Posted By on Thu, Jun 11, 2009 at 5:56 AM

The Democrat-Gazette's Debra Hale-Shelton is back today with more UCA funny business, a $2,000-a-month consulting contract given by former President Lu Hardin to politico Bill Vickery.

What did he do for the money? Nobody seems to know except Vickery, who says it wouldn't be prudent for a political consultant to reveal what media he had spun in Hardin's behalf. (Ultimately, they were not spun very successfully, the record indicates.)

Vickery called me a time or two about UCA matters. The specifics are now lost to my memory. I'd guess it was mostly along the lines of "don't believe everything you read in them lyin' newspapers."

  • 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.
