Tuesday talk

Posted By on Tue, Jul 5, 2011 at 4:49 PM

The line is open. Close-out:

* FIREWORKS: The Little Rock police took 818 calls about fireworks being set off illegally in the city on July 4. That's more than some years, less than others.

* TOMMY SMITH: The Buzz's radio talker had an Aug. 31 trial date set today for drunk driving and related charges. A felony charge of possession of a prescription drug was reduced to a misdemeanor.

* PULASKI ACADEMY SCHOLARSHIPS: A Colorado foundation has chosen Pulaski Academy to receive $100,000 a year for the next four years to provide scholarships to gifted students who qualify on the basis of merit and need.

* WHOLESALE CHEATING: The better question is who DIDN'T cheat on standardized test scores in Atlanta schools.
