FGC roundtable abruptly killed by City Hall

Posted By on Mon, May 12, 2008 at 11:56 PM

With the word from City Hall that a planned roundtable discussion on Fayetteville’s Government Channel on the future of Fayetteville High School - scheduled for later in May - has been abruptly canceled by City Hall, many are now wondering if this is just the sound of the expected other shoe dropping, especially since former Cable Administrator Hilton was a firm proponent of such citizen-initiated roundtables and public forums - much to the displeasure of some above him in City Hall.

It now appears that all such forums and roundtables may be headed for the chopping block.

Will candidate forums be next to go?

It’s not unexpected, but just 72 hours after Hilton’s firing? Nothing subtle about this, is there? Don’t they realize that it just gives conspiracy theorists grist for their mills - or do they even care?

Thursday night’s Telecomm Board meeting should be interesting, at any rate.

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
