Re: “State spends $30,000 drug testing TANF recipients for drugs, nabs 2.

I would imagine the $30,000 plus was for the cost of setting up the testing centers, staff, etc. If that's the case, they got a bargain. I expected in would have cost hundreds of thousands if they actually included all that went into the policy and enforcement. Not a very well written article, I'm afraid.
As others have said, Florida's testing programs several years ago proved it was not financially viable to test TANF recipients because it cost far more than it saved, never mind the constitutional issues

Re: “When Jason Rapert stops talking, he sounds great!

Why is it the only thing his music reminds me of is "Deliverance". Would he be one of the good 'ol boys or the one squealing like a pig, I wonder? Since he has so much hatred for gays, I'm pretty sure he's a closet "squealer".

Re: “Marijuana commission sets cultivation fee at $100,000

What do you expect from a commission filled with people that voted against medical marijuana? Everyone that has revealed their vote all voted no on the issue. Doesn't surprise me that most of them have agendas other than a problem-free, efficient and fair system for doling out the cultivation and retail licenses. As someone else has mentioned, the only one on the board that seems interested in those the law was intended to help is Dr. Ramon. Others (Story) seem to want to make it so expensive as to price the marijuana out of the range of most intended patients. From all I've seen and heard, banking is indeed a very big problem for these operations. No banks want to take a chance on a federal crack down that could lead to their indictment. To make this work in all the states allowing this, the federal govt. should clearly state its intention and give legal marijuana cultivators and sellers, as well as banks, a clear cut exemption from prosecution. That seems to be the only way banks will touch the money. Either that or set up something similar to a bank that could function as a bank for them.

Re: “Marijuana commission split on geographic distribution of cultivation licenses

In response to the above comment: Importing product from other grow operations out of state might invoke DEA to act. That would be the interstate distribution of a still illegal drug by federal law. You can't involve anything that is interstate without falling under fedrral law.

Re: “UPDATE: Five hours late, the Broadway Bridge finally falls

Brings back memories of sitting on the north shore one frigid Sunday morning and waiting and waiting for the Manning Hotel and the Marion Hotel to implode to make room for the what was to be Peabody Hotel. Colder than 5 degrees, with a snow flake or two, we waited for the 6:00 a.m. deadline. Word that a hobo had been seen in the area and they would need to check it out again for safety sake. Searched adn deemed empty and ready to go, only to be delayed again. This happened over and over. I'm not sure what the exact time was they finally imploded it, maybe 10:00 a.m.? I could see the puff where the explosion had blown away the dust. A brief period later, I could feel the dust on my lips and face, and lastly, the explosion's sound finally caught up with the shock wave carrying the dust I had just felt. Not one, but two pieces of history gone forever in Little Rock. The implosion itself was a work of art as we watched the delayed explosions, the blast only being forewarned by the puffs of dust that would accompany each explosive charge, then that blast wave with its dust of whatever was among the ruins of the buildings. Several seconds later, the delayed gratification of the well placed charges causing the building to fall upon its self neatly and compactly. There were only feet between the Manning Hotel and the Old State House Museum, literally close enough to fly a paper airplane from one to the other and this multistory hotel managed to fall into a footprint not one bit larger than its original footprint. Fantastic job and I remember it to this day!
