Live, it's Saturday night! State inspector hunts on the job site; a state candidate plays dumb

Posted By on Sat, Mar 15, 2014 at 3:52 PM

The line is open on a slow Saturday for me. Closing out:

* SON OF THE LR WASTEWATER UTILITY: Remember the Little Rock sewer worker who set off a scandal for living in a trailer on treatment plant property, a controversy that included target shooting on city property? Now from the Baxter Bulletin:

A state official charged with inspecting the NABORS landfill in north Baxter County for the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality has reportedly used the 700-acre landfill tract as “a hunting lease” for several years.

State officials didn't know about it, they said. Of course not. Top officials of the same agency didn't know about a giant hog poop factory in the Buffalo River watershed until after a permit had been issued.

* AGREED: DENNIS MILLIGAN WOULD BE AN APPROPRIATE SUCCESSOR — BASED ON IQ — TO MARTHA SHOFFNER AS STATE TREASURER: Lots of people have noted Milligan's approval of a stupid anti-Obama joke on Facebook. Blue Hog Report rounds it up. In Milligan's defense, I'm sure a lot of the Republicans rushing to tut-tut about this laughed at the monkey humor themselves. They just had enough sense not to sign their names.
