Trouble in Republicanville

Posted By on Wed, Jan 13, 2010 at 2:16 PM

Benton County Judge David Bisbee, the former state senator, is in the middle of controversy.

He apparently hired his own company, Valley Homes, to do a $15,000 remodeling job for the county. The Republican prosecutor, Van Stone, has told the local newspaper that he will request a State Police investigation. A JP says he'll refer the issue to the state Contractors Licensing Board. Bisbee says bring it on, he's clean.

The secondary issue here -- maybe the primary issue -- is that Bisbee, on account of old state Senate politics, has been ringleader of the nominate-anybody-but-Gilbert-Baker Republican primary necktie party. A boodling county judge might not be the best character witness for the other candidates.

    The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality has denied a new permit for the C&H Hog Farms' concentrated animal feeding operation near Mount Judea (Newton County). This is a big and somewhat surprising victory for critics who have viewed C&H's large-scale pig farm and the pig waste it generates as an existential threat to the Buffalo National River.

  • UPDATE: Hutchinson moves to cover himself on cut to War Memorial Stadium

    Gov. Asa Hutchinson apparently felt the burn from KARK's exclusive Tuesday night on his plans to cut state support of War Memorial Stadium in half beginning July 1, 2018. He has a so-far secret plan to make the stadium self-sustaining. We bet that doesn't include state support.
