The big idea

Posted By on Thu, Oct 8, 2009 at 12:56 PM

This is a second call for reader participation in a project for a coming issue of the Arkansas Times.

We're looking for that BIG IDEA that would make Pulaski County a better place. Think small or medium if you prefer. Every topic is on the table. Commerce. Schools. Parks. Infrastructure. No boundaries. Think UAMS should become the base for a government option health program like Medicare? Step right up and explain. More parks? 24-hour libary? Sunday beer sales? Light rail? THIMK, as the famous sign once said.

Write up your ideas (we're suggesting a 300-word limit) and send them to or

We'll publish the best ideas in our issue early next year.

  • City ethics update; campaign limit was supposed to help the little guy

    Some more history on the Little Rock city ordinance that limits candidates for mayor and City Board to raising campaign funds to five months before the November 2018 election. It raises questions not only about Warwick Sabin's fund-raising tactics, but also Mayor Mark Stodola's carryover money.
