Re: “Riverfest is dead, a victim of cost and competition

It's been bleeding Red Ink for a few years according to the story in the paper today.

The festival has lost money for the past few years, with a net loss of $300,000 in 2017, Korte said.

According to the most recent IRS Form 990s available, Riverfest lost about $92,000 in 2013 and almost $187,000 in 2014. According to the 2014 form, Korte received more than $102,000 in reportable compensation from Riverfest Inc. and related organizations for that year.

Re: “UA-Little Rock undertaking study of starting a football team

I guess they figure if all the other schools in the state, but one, can have a program financed by tax dollars and in one case student fees, why can't we. After all there is such a demand for football at LRU.

Re: “John Oliver takes a look at Sinclair Broadcasting and local news

Just listen to the commentary portion of KATV that occurs about 5:00 am every day and you can definitely hear the Conservative Republican leaning opinion.

Re: “Short-sighted Republicans stop planning grant for LR-Hot Springs trail

You don't have to go to Missouri to see a great trail system, just go to NW Ark and take a gander at the Razorback Greenway that stretches from Fayetteville to Rogers. Hotels and Restaurants in NW Ark are bending over backwards to take advantage of and welcome users of the trail.
