Re: “The sweltering open line and a political announcement

Mountain girl, I will ALWAYS be proud to have had the honor of serving with your Dad. He was a great mentor and friend to many of us. He never hesitated to let any of us know if we were doing something wrong. He was also was willing to offer advice (solicited & unsolicited) on handling the sometime nightmares of dealing with State Government. I often tell the story of why term limits have no place in the Legislature, although there are certain individuals who should be term limited !! The loss of institutional memory provided by the likes of Legislators such as your Dad, John Miller, Ode Maddox, John Paul Capps, and a number of other really good Legislators can never be replaced. I will never forget attending my first Legislative Council Meeting chaired by your Dad when the Head of some State Agency asked for an additional appropriation. A small voice (John Miller) in the back of the room got the attention of the Chair, and said that this individual had attempted the same thing more than 10 years before. Mr. Miller proceeded to tell all of us why he had been previously turned down. The Agency Head, realizing that he was going to get nowhere, tucked tail and sat down. With the institution of term limits, this greatly needed deterrent to bad legislation was lost. Your Dad is also to be thanked by all of us for his legislation that provides for the $350 Property Tax Exemption. It took years of hard work by him to get that passed !!

Re: “Inmate death at Cummins Unit referred to Arkansas State Police

Call it what you want - talking, typing, communicating or whatever - but do it in a manner that I can follow. Agree or disagree with the first post by G.Rex, it was, at least, understandable !!

Re: “Clarke Tucker tells personal cancer story in new ad, promises to stand up to anyone in Congress "who tries to take your health insurance"

Mountaingirl, you show remarkable restraint. I will follow your lead although I would like to speak less kindly about Razor. Regardless, he is a real Turd !!
