A victory for vegetables

Posted By on Sat, Jun 26, 2010 at 10:17 AM

Remember the news I'd passed along about city code enforcement officers shutting down a small farmers market at Pulaski Academy?

You can fight city hall. This note went out Friday to interested parties from assistant city manager Bryan Day.

Good afternoon —

City staff has met and talked about the local market being held at Pulaski Academy . We are very much in support of local farmers and want to find a way to increase access to home grown produce throughout the community. In light of our discussions, we have decided to allow the market to continue operating at Pulaski Academy on an interim basis. We must all sit down in the future and develop a long-term strategy for providing locations and procedures for local farmers. Please let me know who would like to be a part of that discussion.

If you have questions, please feel free to call me.

Bryan

  • Central High at 60: Seize the day mayor. Stand up for LR schools.

    The conversion of a national debate on race is an apt commentary for the 60th anniversary of the Little Rock school crisis and the city's effort to sell it as an occasion to laud progress. Progress would be someone talking about the elephant in the room — the white establishment's takeover of the majority black Little Rock School District.

  • Bad health care bill, again

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.

    LRSD continues to abdicate its responsibility to educate poor black students.
