Re: “Dying Arkansas firefighter fights to collect stalled pension

Thank you for covering this story Mr. Koon and Max Brantley for your article on the date of the LOPFI board meeting where the Planchon family supporters were not recognized. I hope the local media will follow suit, they have certainly all been advised of this travesty of justice. Hope others will step up to the plate and make this Board do right by Bud Planchon and family.

Re: “Protest planned at state police and fire pension office

thank you Max for covering this and posting Bud's letter. What is happening her is totally unjust and needs to be investigated. But most importantly LOPFI needs to read their own rules about physicals and pre-existing conditions wherein they stated if a physical is passed and no known preexisting conditions are covered they should be paid their disability. For the group not to be following their own regulations is atrocious.

Re: “Justice Tom Glaze dies

Stephanie Mays posted:

Friday morning the world lost a great man, Justice Tom Glaze, who passed away after having courageously fought a long and painful battle with Parkinson's Disease and Lewey body disease.

Justice Glaze recently published a book regarding his battle with voter fraud in the seventies called Cemetery Vote, which I encourage everyone to read. He did all he could, at great risk to his own personal safe...ty, to prevent voter fraud in our state, with great success. His passionate and tireless fight against this travesty of democracy made a real difference in Arkansas. He continued his crusade passionately and fearlessly for years despite receiving numerous death threats and intimidation.

Justice Glaze's efforts to combat voter fraud is just a small part of the contributions this remarkable man gave to our state. As a judge on the Arkansas Court of Appeals and a justice on the Arkansas Supreme Court, Justice Glaze continued to oppose and fight against any kind of injustice whenever he encountered it.

I was blessed with personally knowing him and I can honestly say he was one of the wisest, most intelligent people I have ever known. He had a grasp of the true spirit of the law that I have rarely seen in any other officer of the court, be it attorney or judge. His personal and professional integrity was of the highest standard. On a personal level, he had a great deal of compassion and a wonderful sense of humor. He left this world a better place than he found it, and that is the best a human being can do. His life is a true success story and a role model for us all. His death is a great loss, not only to his friends and family but to the entire state, and I will miss him greatly. Rest in peace, Justice Glaze. I will never forget you and all you did to help people and make the world a better place to live.

Re: “Justice Tom Glaze dies

I have been sorely disappointed in the comments about the death of Justice Glaze. Ernie dumas did a great job announcing his death! Tom Glaze dedicated himself to fighting real voter and election fraud= he did so in a time when standing up for what you believe was very difficult politically in that part of the State. As he acknowledges in his book, Alex Street, Tom Donovan, Jim Guy Tucker and also Francis Donovan fought hard to get a poll watching system that was effective. The ladies from Conway County including Ms. Reed and Ms. Drilling were a huge support and so was his law partner, Richard Mays. Comments should be dedicated to the wonderful life Tom Glaze lived, the many people he mentored, and what a huge loss Arkansas has suffered.
