THE FREEWAY DOES NOT GO ON FOREVER: Questions about completing the bypass.
  • THE FREEWAY DOES NOT GO ON FOREVER: Questions about completing the bypass.

The line is open. Finishing up:

* SOLUTION: TAX INCREASE:  Looks like money is short — on the Missouri side at the moment — to complete the Bella Vista bypass. 40/29 reports. A fuel tax increase could provide the revenue the highway contractors need, even as it encouraged more fuel efficient cars and driving habits. Sound like a plan. What say you Bart Hester and other Teabaggers in NWA?

* TOM COTTON'S ETHICS: Questions continue to remain unanswered about whether U.S. Rep. Tom Cotton has used the U.S. Capitol or a publicly paid cell phone to do campaigning. He could turn over his phone records. Don't hold your breath.

* LARRY JEGLEY RUNNING FOR RE-ELECTION AS PROSECUTOR: He made his announcement today. Expected. And opposition isn't. For good reason. Tough but fair.
