Re: “Charter panel recommends revoking charter of Covenant Keepers

Thanks Maxifer for your endless knowledge, but you still have not answered my question. ACT 35 or not charter schools are closed down, meaning doors closed, staff let go and students dispersed, while that is not the case for nearly any LRISD schools.

And for your information, since you are so much more intelligent than I, that is not ignorance it is just stating the facts.

Re: “Charter panel recommends revoking charter of Covenant Keepers

Lbishop,

hope your going to use the same standards to look at a number of these closed down ISDs that open the next week at magnets or STEM centers...with pretty much the same staff and pretty much the same results that got them closed down in the first place.

This school's doors are closed, staff fired and students sent out in the city to take care of themselves...something that does not happen much in the ISD world.

Re: “Little Rock prepared to resume taxpayer subsidies of LR Regional Chamber of Commerce

Like I keep saying, the city needs to start investigating the adoption of a municipal income tax as a more reliable funding base for city function.

Re: “Family shooting is Little Rock's 16th homicide

Now we are at a homicide rate of MORE than 1 a week...just like we had in the bad old 90's that the mayor says we have nothing to worry about we are returning to.

Re: “Little Rock leadership misses its fault in tax woes

The mayor and the board need to enter the 21st century...

this is a classic example for a city adopting a municipal income tax revenue base.

We cannot compete with the suburbs at the residential shopping markets...but by his own bragging the mayor is touting our dominance in the jobs arena.

All those residents in the suburbs have to come HERE to work and make a living...so why don't they have to pay for all the infrastructure benefits they enjoy while they are here for probably about 1/2 their day, Monday thru Friday?

Re: “Mayor Stodola emphasizes public safety in state of the city talk

The History of a failed administration:

Mayor Stodola came to office committed to LR and especially the troubled south parts of the city, so what did we get:

More downtown and his disapointment that Main St is not advancing fast enough

Crime has increased, overall on a "now" year over year basis, while he has been mayor.

We have the only government in the state of Arkansas where we pay more than a 1/4 million dollars for a screwed up dipartate governance.

Does it work? See my crime point above.

Next we have an increase in our taxes that will fix all our infrastructure problems but now, ooooppps, we did not think this through and we are not making enough money to fix ALL those problems. So much so that our NECESSARY at-large director says we have to get help from the legislature.

Now, in the departments that have most to do with our public safety, fire, police, 911 operators, we cannot get them fully staffed because people do not want to work in a city with all the crime and the lousy schools we have.

But do not worry, things are not as bad as the 90s, sorry... at that time we had 1 murder a week and we now have MORE than 1 murder a week, and to fix this he is going to get our public safety Depts fully staffed...Oh so some miracle is going to occur because the data clearly shows that during EVERY year of his tenure those departments have NEVER been fully staffed. SO NOW HE THINKS IT IS A PRIORITY!

So in the end what does our Mayor want you to believe...as far as I can see, IN FAIRY TALES!!!!

Re: “The open line, plus: Arkansas Democrats elect Gray party chair; two dead in shootings

Worry not though, according to the mayor. Things are far better than they were in the 90's.

The stories I heard about the bad old days in the 90's was that things started changing when residents became upset with the murder rate approaching 1 murder a week.

Well, the math seems to look the same to me here, we are 12 weeks into the new year and we have 12 homicides, sure looks like 1 a week to me.

So mayor, how does the same murder rate that we had in the bad old 90's become a "better" situation?
