Wills for Congress

Posted By on Tue, Jan 26, 2010 at 1:47 PM

Faulkner County Democratic women report that House Speaker Robbie Wills of Conway has told them that he will officially announce his candidacy for Congress tomorrow. They're saying the announcement will be at noon Wednesday at Pickles Gap, north of Conway.

Pickles Gap? Pickles Gap is the tourist stop where you once could buy a fine bit of handiwork known as the Ozark Mountain Do Nothing (pictured). Just saying.

UPDATE: Yep, the women were right. As usual. Why Pickles Gap? Apparently Wills' grandfather started the business, though the family no longer owns it. And he still sports an Ozark Mountain Do Nothing on his own desk. Y'all come.

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

It raises questions not only about Warwick Sabin's fund-raising tactics, but also Mayor Mark Stodola's carryover money.
