Re: “What Leila Dockery learned during her three-year journey walking every street in Little Rock

Way to go, Leila. And way to not be scared to be in places you don't usually go. So much unfounded fear out there!

Re: “William Trice to lead Arkansas Repertory Theatre

I 100 percent agree with RBearLIT. Combo of theater expertise (THREE TONYS!) and business acumen -- plus I bet he's a great fundraiser. Yea! Best news yet of this young year.

Re: “Merry Christmas and a tale of giving

I just read Jake's touching column. Extremely well presented and such a poignant slice of family Christmas life.

Re: “Shootout on Main Street leaves teen wounded, cars damaged

The police and media reports say this party was in an "event space." What's the space? Where's the space. The ground floor of that building - with Matt McLeod's fish mural on the north face, has New Life Church and the vintage store that took over the Bennett's on the first floor. So is this "event space" above the church? How do you get to it?

Re: “Frank Scott announces mayoral transition team

Sounds like a diverse, talented team to help lead what has the chance to be an orderly, well thought out transition.

Re: “Frank Scott Jr. elected mayor of Little Rock, topping Baker Kurrus in runoff

I'm not suggesting it should or will happen, but if Bruce Moore at some point soon is no longer city manager, how about Baker Kurrus in that spot?

Re: “High school newspaper in Springdale suspended for investigating football transfers

When I was a senior at Bryant High School and sports editor of the Hornet Buzz, the only weekly high school paper in the state, I dared to write that just because the Hornets won the "Saline County Championship" tournament -- which only included Bryant, Harmony Grove, Paron and Bauxite, all tiny schools except us -- that maybe we shouldn't proclaim our team champions of the county since Benton soundly thumped us twice each year in regular season games. My journalism teacher, Arthur Paulus, was called in front of the school board and told to shut me up. He refused. The coach's wife wrote letters to the editor of the newspaper criticizing me, and the coach told a player that if he saw me walking on the side of the road he'd run me over, given the chance. I was also the Bryant sports "stringer" for the Benton Courier, and a couple of days after the article in the Courier about the school board meeting and its desire to have me silenced, the Courier's lead editorial was about first amendment rights and an endorsement of me as a decent kid and of my journalism teacher for standing up for me. That was nearly 42 years ago. And nothing's changed, apparently.
