Re: “North Little Rock teen dies from gun wound

This was a kid (17). Regardless of how it happened, a family is now without their son. These types of events are always sad.

Re: “Trump's attack on national treasures, the National Park system

Raising the fees to get in parks is not a bad thing. The whole theory of "loving it to death" comes into play with our national parks. You ever been to Yellowstone during peak visiting season? The Buffalo River during the summer for a float on a weekend? However, please keep big business out of the parks and national monuments. I have faith in the legal system here and that eventually the monuments will be left alone and intact.

Re: “Riverfest calls it quits

Executive Director and the board failed the festival. Period. They blame other festivals, rising costs, weather, etc. In the end, they blew it. Every year they changed some type of entry fee, where the festival's location, etc. Here is a thought, shrink the festival footprint. Try not to please everyone. Ditch the hip hop acts. Make it a two day festival starting on saturday and sunday. Put it on Memorial day weekend. Clean house with the board and consult with people who know how to book bands, etc. Also, learn how to take criticism. People I know who were involved with the planning, etc when you told them the lineup was lame or that the pricing on food/beer had gotten high, they yelled at you that "IT IS ALL ABOUT THE VOLUNTEERS". No, actually it is about turning a profit and getting people there. When you have REO Speedwagon, Morris Day and the Time, Chaka Khan, Earth Wind and Fire etc. as headliners, your festival sucks. And it did on several occasions. That is not to be without saying they didn't have good headliners as well. ZZ Top, Chris Stapleton, Widespread Panic, Dwight Yokem, Bosephus in his heyday. From time to time, you need to change management. In the 16 years I have lived in central arkansas, I always saw the same people running the VIP tent, the same people driving the golf carts, etc. Get the Little Rock Women's City Club out of the festival. Sounds like they got stuck in a rut and became complacent with mediocrity. Give me and my people a $3 million dollar budget and I promise we can throw a good party.

Re: “So much for a school settlement in Pulaski County

Maumelle and Sherwood and any other schools that are tied to the giant shitstorm that is Little Rock should request to be allowed to leave the PCSSD. Public schools south of the river are imploding mostly due to over 30 years of litigation. Let John Walker run the LRSD and PCSSD (south). That would likely satisfy those still attending and the Joshua people. While your at it, turn over the police chief duties to Walker as well. He can probably handle it.

Re: “Two strong votes for taxes; special elections again prove allure

Good for PCSSD. More bad news for the LRSD. If I was a parent in the LRSD or a teacher, I would be looking elsewhere.

Re: “Judge Griffen writes about morality, Christian values and executions

Judges should be impartial. If you cannot be impartial, you shouldn't hear the case. Period. Regardless of your position on the death penalty, Wendell Griffin is biased, therefore you cannot rely on him to make an unbiased decision.

Re: “Child's shooting death called result of road rage UPDATE

I don't understand how this turned into a gun rights issue. I mean a fucking 3 year old was murdered due to an angry person shooting into a car. I shake my head at both sides when another senseless murder happens. Arkansas Times blog followers are just as terrible as the far right. You guys suck. Your freedom of speech is protected, but sometimes you should shut your mouth or think really hard before you speak. There is a reason the liberals lost, and alot of it is because of an attitude like this. Gun control wouldn't have solved this issue. Maybe anger management would have.
