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.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
