Schools closed in Pulaski; what else? Mike Ross policy talk still on.

Posted By on Tue, Feb 4, 2014 at 5:53 AM

The expectation of coming ice prompted closure of all school districts in Pulasi County today.

Little Rock city offices are closed and the "essential personnel only" directive has been issued for state employees in the metro area, so news today is going to be sparse. (I guess that means nobody will be around to open the check from Mark Darr that surely is in the mail by now to repay state taxpayers for money he spent improperly on personal expenses.)

Should I get off my hill while the getting is good? Or not? I opt for not.

What will happen now in a nice-becalmed city?

Democrat Mike Ross has scheduled his first major policy announcement in Little Rock at 10:30 this morning. The gubernatorial candidate is widely expected to talk taxes.  That information should be available before long regardless of weather.

UPDATE: The weather has prompted Ross to push the talk back to 2 p.m.

The forecast below we don't need.

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
